I'm not gonna say that we waited for Travis Scott's Astroworld to drop before putting out the list this month, but I also won't acknowledge saying Trix are for kids is blasphemous.
- Astroworld has been on our radar for awhile, and it didn't disappoint (Sicko Mode; Skeletons; No Bystanders)
- Thank you for Wake Up, not only is it a great track, but it brought us back to our favorite Weeknd (i.e. Pre-Selena; The Party & The After Party)
- Any Willie Beamen lyrical drop deserves a plug of our favorite Willie song (Unpredictable)
- Among other new music releases we are digging and Logic kept his momentum up (One Day) and H.E.R. (Lost Souls) gives justice to the blueprint Lauryn Hill (Lost Ones) created
- Vic Mensa took a page out of the Drake playbook (Metaphysical), but may have found a hit
- This got us in a dancehall mood, so highlighted some less-heard verses of popular riddims (Miss L.A.P.; I Won't Stop) that should be heard more
- Silk City dropped a new track (Loud), but JackU (Mind) is still our favorite Diplo amalgamation
- If roaming (pun is coming) the streets of Philidelphia, you may get dunked on physically or lyrically as Rome Fortune (there it is) continues to bring it (Love Hate)
- The next slate of tracks were inspired by artists we can't wait to see at the Bay Area's most celebrated music festival, Outside Lands
- Classic Odesza (Sun Models) was an easy choice
- Illenium (Crawl Out of Love) in his hometown - enough said
- Big Gigantic (All of Me) kept the electro hip-hop momentum up for us
- We are at the height of our summer vibes, so included tracks accordingly (Messy; Body; Problems (just realized this makes for 3 great songs, but one very awkward statement))
