Lionel Boy x Summer Fun

Last week, Lionel Boy shared “Lost,” a song which The FADER described as “a detuned slacker-pop song that builds to a satisfyingly down-tempo guitar hook”. Today he is following up with the breezy and buoyant “Summer Fun”. Both songs are from the upcoming Who Is Dovey? EP, out June 26th. Lionel Boy also shared the socially distanced live performance video of “Summer Fun”.  “Summer Fun” is an ode to his days at summer camp in Oahu:

"I don’t know what you guys got going on in the mainland, but back on Oahu during the summer time we got all these elementary kids in this program called Summer Fun. It’d at the school you just spent all year at, but with kids from all over, and you just played all day. Anyway, after watching that show on Hulu, Pen15, I thought it’d be funny to sing about some childhood memories. My first girlfriend was during Summer Fun. Talk about holdin hands and passin notes and all that haha. But once it was done, all these kids would split up and head back to their school districts. So I never really saw her after that. There was a lot of New Edition inspiration throughout this one. “Cool it Now” to be specific."

Jimmy Edgar x Hudson Mohawke

Originally reported by Hypebeast, Jimmy Edgar and Hudson Mohawke have teamed up on the new "woofer rattler" BENT.  As the article goes on to explain: "the newly-released track originally started off as a loop from HudMo, later reworked by Edgar into a pithy Detroit-meets-London sonic exploration."  Expect more from Edgar later this year.

One More Song x Lazywax
"One More Song" by Classixx (feat. Roosevelt) gets the flip here by Australia's Lazywax duo. Classixx explains "This remix came together because Marius (Roosevelt) was a fan of the Lazywax guys and turned us on to them. We thought their production sensibilities would be great for a remix and they did great work. Really clean and polished sounds with a propulsive rhythm section. Looking forward to spinning this one when we get to party next." The remix is available on all DSP's.
Hanni El Khatib x FLIGHT

Hanni El Khatib's 5th full length LP, FLIGHT is out today, May 15th, 2020. As Line of Best Fit notes in FLIGHT (produced by Leon Michels): the "mastery of a wide variety of styles is impressive, but his ability to maintain a consistent quality across those styles is staggering."  While CLASH claims that the "multi-faceted 'FLIGHT' makes for a dizzying listen..."
