IP’s New Music Friday – September 4, 2020

Welcome to another week of Infinite Purple’s New Music Friday keeping you posted on what’s new and good so that you can stay up to date without all the work!

Read through or make your way to the bottom for the full Spotify playlist of our Friday discoveries.

Hit Different – SZA (ft. Ty Dolla $ign & The Neptunes)
AND SHE BACK. AND SHE BACK. AND SHE BACK. SZA has gifted us a brand new track and her first non-feature release since her 2017 album Ctrl. This track features Ty Dolla $ign & Pharrell’s group The Neptunes to bring us a sexy R&B banger the way only SZA can.

Spark It Up / Slipping Away – LEISURE
LEISURE has brought us a fantastic two-track release that’ll bring all the vibes for your next beach day. These guys continually offer up their fresh take on laid back indie rock and consistently release great music like the track “Slipping Away” below.

Free Woman (Honey Dijon Realness Remix) – Lady Gaga
Honey Dijon is one of our favorite house artists here at IP and she is the queen of remixes! She has blessed us this week with an epic remix of Free Woman by Lady Gaga off of her most recent album. There is no shortage of funk, swing and sass in Honey’s music and this remix reigns true!

If You Want Me To Stay – Ari Lennox (ft. Anthony Ramos)
Does this song not immediately sound like it could be the hit song to a soundtrack of a Romantic movie? The chemistry between Ari Lennox and Hamilton star Anthony Ramos is outstanding. Their voices blend together giving us a sound reminiscent of the feels from “My Boo” With Alicia Keys and Usher.

Right Time (Kraak & Smaak Remix) – Blank & Jones and Emma Brammer
We are living in the era of House and Disco resurgence, with Kraak and Smaak being one of our favorites on the more funky side of things. Emma Brammer provides such soul with her voice, and Kraak & Smaak brings the funk to back it! 

So Done – Alicia Keys (ft. Khalid)
Two R&B hit makers team up here for a laid back, sensual tune with Alicia Keys & Khalid blending their powerful voices over some reverb heavy guitar.

Never Be The Same – Martina Budde
Do you have a handful of songs that are guaranteed to lift your mood? Add this to it! Martina Budde brings us an upbeat and nostalgic original this week that brings all of the chill summertime house vibes. 

The Los Angeles based duo Neil Frances is back with more of that feel good daytime disco that is perfect to play on these hot summer days. To us this song is like a breath of fresh air. Nothing is heavy in this song, the vocals and beat are light and ready to get you groovin’. *We highly suggest you watch the Music Video if you love dogs.

The Fire (MK Remix) – Kideko & Armand Van Helden
Don’t you just love when a legendary DJ remixes another legendary DJ’s song to make a true masterpiece? Well that’s exactly what happened here with Armand Van Helden’s new song  “The Fire” remixed by MK (Marc Kinchen). This track immediately hits us with upbeat vocals that makes you want to jump out of our chair and start dancing. When a song can get you to do that, you know you have a club hit (for once we can go to the club again).

And some extra tracks that stood out this week:
