YASIIN BEY | BOILER ROOM

**Overlook this at your own peril**

Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) surprised a crowd of 200 in Miami with his first US performance in 5 years. Check out his full Boiler Room set below - it is packed with unreleased material. We actually cannot comprehend how this set has received such minuscule acknowledgement relative to his god-like status.



Here he is doing an acapella redition of 'No Time to Pretend' that same night.

JAMES BLAKE | MY WILLING HEART

The visuals for James Blake's 'My Willing Heart' are completely beautiful. It's from his 2016 album, The Colour in Everything, and features an ethereal Natalie Portman just days before giving birth. We are in awe.

SOULECTION | SHOW #300

HD's love affair with Soulection Radio has lasted 3 years now and we are feeling quite nostalgic for them having reached their 300th show. 

As always, it is definitely worth the listen. 



Here are just a couple of our highlights:
  • 0:16 - We got hooked right here
  • 0:23 - Miles Davis respect!
  • 1:00 - a little bit of Justin Timberlake magic here
  • 1:13 - live version of Jay Z's 'Hard Knock Life' with Mary J Blige
  • 2:20 - mmmmm, L0tso x ODIE's 'Senorita' always goes down well in a Soulection
  • 2:33 - It's been too long since we listened to Rhye!
  • 2:45 - I don't think we would need any drinks for you Miguel

Thanks Joe Kay!

OCEAN / ROCKY | CHANEL

On his second episode of Blonded Radio on Beats Radio 1, Frank Ocean surprised the world and released a new song. He then proceeded to play the new track 'Chanel' 18 times in a row. 2 out of the 18 included a closing verse from A$AP Rocky. 

Nothing Frank does is average; Rocky is in at 3:44 - 'Chanel' is great.
