We have Adidas Originals and Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch series to thank for an array of much unexpected but brilliantly put together collaborations over the years. The latest such treat sees Brooklyn duo Brasstracks join up with creamy voiced Khalid on a fleecy R&B soul jam named Whirlwind. This “whirlwind” is a velveteen twirl with brassy flourishes and some hip hop edge. Think HONNE and Chet Faker gone more trumpet ornate and drum animated. It’ll warm you on a cold, cold night.

UK based Iranian musician TĀLĀ teamed up with Tom Krell, or much revered electronic R&B artist How To Dress Well, on a new track named The One. Except, there isn’t just one version of the song, there’s two! It’s like Christmas morning! And I honestly couldn’t pick which of the two I preferred to share above, and which below, so the choice is really rather random. One is TĀLĀ’s version, one is Tom Krell’s, and both are absolutely magnificent. While How To Dress Well’s The One is a bolder, more fiery jam, TĀLĀ’s version is slightly more mystical and extra steamy. Both versions of their spectacular collaboration are full on seductive and overwhelmingly intoxicating. The two crafted the song together for Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch singles series. 

Whoops, blogger mistake. Forgot to embed the other version when I posted yesterday, so let me get this up correct. Here you go, the TĀLĀ version below, too!

Los Angeles’ Kelela has teamed up with rising Chicago rapper Tink on a this candied, alluring new track titled Want It. The song, commissioned by Yours Truly for its Songs From Scratch series, is produced by Los Angeles hip hop producer DJ Dahi. The skittery, clackety, provocative track is a sweet combo of Kelela’s R&B smokiness and Tink’s slick rap verses.

Ryan Hemsworth and Starlito – Can’t Get Over You

November 12, 2013

Talented Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth teamed up with Tennessee rapper Starlito on a new track titled Can’t Get Over You for the latest Yours Truly Song From Scratch collaboration series. Mr. Hemsworth sure is keeping busy with the music days, having just released his  album Guilt Trips recently which was a critically acclaimed, incredible listen (all after an amazing EP earlier this year titled Still Awake). Can’t Get Over you is a brilliant blend of Ryan Hemsworth’s amazing production and Starlito’s grimy rap. It’s a melodic beauty filled with an overwhelming sense of inner battle and turmoil.

In the latest artist collaboration installment from Adidas Originals’ Songs From Scratch (and Yours Truly), Montreal producer Jacques Greene teamed up with American pop/R&B singer Tinashe. Painted Faces is a smooth, moody, satisfying house anthem. It’s beautiful.
