Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 16

It has been a massive week in music, compiling this mix was tough. Each day went by and more additions were made. But here we are, and i’m using a new downloading service so hopefully it all works out well.

New singles from Slum Village with De La Soul, Swizz Beatz with A$AP Rocky, Greg Laswell with Sara Bareilles, The Shh, The Temper Trap, Trey Songz and B.o.B.

Finnish group Cats On Fire is set to released their fourth LP All Blackshirts To Me this Tuesday, March 27. “A Few Empty Waves” with its Band Of Horses sound is just a taste of what’s to come.

With their unique style, humour and obscure references, the Texas Alternative Hip-Hop group The Lower Class dropped a fresh single Friday.

Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) released his EP Half Naked & Almost Famous Tuesday.

If you haven’t already downloaded Mac’s Macadelic, the more memorable tracks from the tape made the cut.
