Top 5 Songs To Smoke To This Week
OVEOUS, Don Kamares - “Legacy” (Original Mix)
Out on Yoruba Records, I was just blessed with this dj promo. Man! Definitely get asses shaking (pon de replay). Oveous building a definitive catalog of songs that will stand the test of time.
PolyRhythm & Sheleah Monea - "Is It A Crime" (Doug Gomez Remix)
Incredible SADE remake featuring the dynamic Sheleah Monea on vocals. Doug Gomez delivers a classic! Ezel and Shawn Lucas lend a hand on bass, piano and solo. The entire package is simply essential, and out on Open Bar Music.
Black Coffee - “Wish You Were Here” feat. Msaki
He's an example and blueprint inspiration for us all — Grammy winner, huge in the DJ market. As a producer, he's surely arrived at mainstream success and keeps pushing boundaries. He's a disrupter but in a good way.
And why not?
Who says we have to limit ourselves to just the club. This track’s out on Ultra Music.
Rocco Rodamaal - “Tbt3” (Osunlade Remix)
Another classic redrop this time touched by maestro Osunlade, out on Memories. It’s on my list of killers this year.

Norty Cotto - “Tamarindo” (Piragua Remix) / Made In Miami
Cotto's resume speaks for itself. While I love his remix work, it's his productions that make great head turners. Standout latin grooves. Big Room Sounds! That's all we need.
