A Mix On Repeat #9
Here’s the latest dose of tracks that are worth getting to know this week. As it’s bank holiday week we’ve picked some cuts to fit our mood.
We first heard of Xavier Dunn yesterday. Doing some poking around we can see he’s brought his soothing folk-r&b vocals to a few other covers including A$AP Rocky’s Fuckin’ Problem (which has over a million plays to date.)

Niia’s vocals have been supplemented well this rather mellow Stint remix which doesn’t take too much away from the original but instead further justifies it as a great lounge track. If you’re looking to pick up a glass of red wine one evening over the bank holiday you should consider a spin or two. Another note on Niia – Doesn’t she have such a fantastic tone to her vocals?

Soak this one in now:
