‘I am not Poseidon/ but I ride him through the rip tide’. I don’t know what the heck that means, but I’m loving it. The self-proclaimed DΔRKWΔVE DUCHΞSS delivers this quirky but tasty slice of pop cheese, her echoey vocals dancing over the old-skool beat. Most importantly, there's some 808 cowbell in there. Enough said.
When was the last time Drake saw sunlight? He’s been putting out hits so often lately, I’m surprised he finds time to leave the recording studio. Still, I shouldn’t be putting him down, considering he’s just blessed us with this new summery jam. The smooth head-bobbing beat comes courtesy of Toronto producer, Nineteen85. As for DJ Khaled’s contribution – as always a mystery, although he seems to have main credit for the song as usual. He takes the time to shout ‘we the best!!!’ at the beginning. I guess that’ll have to do…
A producer actually worthy of his DJ title – Californian electronic artist DJ Shadow teams up with Berlin-based beatsmith Nils Frahm to deliver this glitchy instrumental banger. A ‘bergschrund’ is a cleft found on a glacier or mountain according to my internet research (never know, may come in handy in a pub quiz) and certainly sums up the jagged, icy atmosphere of the track.
