KARMAA gives Ru Paul a run for their money with the queer Alt Pop anthem “Werkk”

KARMAA has dropped plenty of fresh danceable feats of Alt-Pop, but the best introduction to their magnetically fierce sound is their single Werkk. It gives Ru Paul’s empoweringly queer hits a run for their money.

Boomers and bigots may not appreciate the high vibe, but anyone whose mind isn’t closing in on itself will appreciate the aural call for confidence and unity amongst the queer community.

With elements of Hip Hop weaved into the Pop mix, there’s plenty of conviction behind the lyrics and you’ll get just as much energy from the trancey EDM beats.

Lo-Ke gives us a taste of “That Good Life” with his latest single ft Shadow Kyd

That Good Life” is the latest single to drop from breaking Hip Hop artist Lo-Ke. No, it’s not another Rapper ostentatiously versing about excess and Hennessey. It’s potentially the most inspiring perception-shifting Hip Hop track we’ve heard this year.

The wisdom-soaked wordplay in That Good Life ft Shadow Kyd is in tune with the contemporary collective consensus. We’ve all had an opportunity to rethink what constitutes as a good life, if you haven’t seen the light and stopped desperately wanting to amass wealth, shiny things and your own hareem, Lo-Ke may just turn that light on for you with That Good Life.

The melodic Indie Hip Hop Pop track is sure to go down well with fans of Post Malone and Yelawolf, or anyone who appreciates organic good vibes and lyrical enlightenment.

The FAMM offers plenty of high-vibe groove in their Funk-soaked single “I Got a Feeling” featuring Deangelo Nedio

https://music.apple.com/us/album/i-got-a-feeling-feat-deangelo-nedio/1422432380?i=1422432382

Anyone curating playlists of the hottest Summer Hip Hop singles will want to make Colorado-based artist The FAMM’s 2018 single I Got a Feeling featuring Deangelo Nedio a staple.

You won’t find a more infectiously high-vibe single if you turned on the radio today. With Jazz and Funk weaved into the fresh and danceable mix, it offers the same euphoria-oozing feel as tracks by the likes of Daft Punk and the Weekend. Reminiscences aside, The FAMM (forever about making music) discernibly don’t create their tracks by means of assimilation. I Got a Feeling is as authentic as feel-good music gets. There’s a soulful sincerity within their galvanizing production which practically begs for repeat attention.
