Marvin Gaye – Ain’t That Peculiar (Oddisee Remix)

Emails from Mello Music Group have an unfortunate habit of getting promptly buried by a load of other stuff on arrival, meaning I end up sleeping on modern classics from Apollo Brown, 14KT and other talented folks from their impressive roster. Today, however, the High-Rise inbox was treated to a much-needed Spring clean, and just in time for this to arrive…

For those in need of an introduction, Oddisee is a Washington DC born rapper and producer who spends his time between his hometown, Brooklyn and London, collaborating with the likes of Diamond District, Tranqil and Damu the Fudgemunk. Ain’t That Peculiar will be released next week as part of Odd Renditions, a collection of remixes featuring K-Os, Bon Iver and Metronomy. Keep an eye on High-Rise for that one. Oddisee also has a brand new album due out June 12th, which you can pre-order here. If you need to catch up on Oddisee’s considerable discography, make sure you do it via his Bandcamp.

BeatPete – Dope on Plastic Second Set

As promised, a quick heads up on BeatPete’s latest offering; the second part of his Dope on Plastic mix is now online. It boasts a similarly brilliant track selection, including Jneiro Jarel, Knxwledge, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and Slum Village, and is currently helping those at High-Rise HQ recover from a début weekend in Berlin (what a place!).
