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

Solid Gold – Disciples (ft. bshp)
DJ/production trio Disciples is back with an awesome new track that will definitely get you moving. They’re unique blend of house, hip hop, and dance music makes their music super fun to dance and vibe out to. Recruiting UK singer, bshp, they add some super funky and exciting vocals that give this track an extra injection of fun.

we could have some cute kids. – Tai Verdes
Tai Verdes has quickly skyrocketed into the musical world after having his songs go viral on TikTok multiple times. We absolutely loved his last track, “BAD BAD News,” and this new song is keeping his win streak going. His new track, “we would have some cute kids.,” continues to show his incredible songwriting skills that create unique and fun songs with a clear concept. Excited to hear more from Tai!

Comin’ Home Baby – Kevin McKay & DJ Mark Brickman
There is just no way around it, over the past year Kevin Mckay has been consistently releasing what have become some of our favorite dancefloor anthems. His tracks always seem to carry elements of funk and soul, and never lack a super clean beat to keep things feeling upbeat. In “Comin’ Home Baby,” Mckay did exactly what we’d expect and more, adding one of the catchiest vocals we’ve heard to date.

Same Old – ENNY
Rapper/singer ENNY crafts soulful, lyric-centric tracks that reflect her life and story. Hailing from South East London, ENNY creates songs that have a laid back vibe with strong, relevant vocals. On “Same Old,” she brings her unique storytelling to make a song that has an awesome vibe with some jazzy piano and fun beat. She’s only been around for a little while, but we look forward to seeing the heights she reaches in the near future.

Temptation – SIDEPIECE
LA-based duo SIDEPIECE has been on a serious rise in the past couple of years, with a couple of their tracks going down in dance music history. “Temptation” is an eruption of energy with a moving beat and an extremely catchy vocal bringing the best taste of 60’s R&B, from The Temptation’s classic, “(I Know) I’m Losing You.” If you are keeping this one in your back pocket for your next dance party, we’d highly suggest checking out some more by SIDEPIECE, such as “On My Mind” and the many remixes that followed!

Good & Plenty Remix – Lucky Daye, Masego, & Alex Isley
One of our favorite artists, Lucky Daye, puts his spin on Alex Isley & Masego’s awesome track “Good & Plenty.” It keeps the sexy, laid back vibes from the original track, but Lucky puts his unique vocals and writing to give it his own feel. The beat on this track is really nice and the dreamy synths work perfect with the vocals of the three superstar R&B artists.

Zero – Claptone
Claptone is a top-notch house artist with a wide range of versatility, ranging from Defected-style bangers to more chill and melodic grooves. In “Zero” the legend brings us something in between, with a really fun beat and more emphasis put on the vocal. If you liked this one, we suggest checking out some of our fave’s from Claptone such as “Another Night,” “Good to You,” and “Drop the Pressure.”

Broken Bells – Greta Van Fleet
Rock band, Greta Van Fleet, released a new track from their forthcoming album. On “Broken Bells,” Greta takes a more subdued energy reminiscent of some of Led Zeppelin’s best tracks. The song is soothing and soulful showing the larger range of Greta Van Fleet as they stray from the heavy rock that we’ve heard so far from this new album.

Away – Felipe Gordon
If you like the feel of some more chill house music, Felipe Gordon should definitely be your next workday shuffle. “Away” is an absolutely delicious 6 minute groove, with a consistent beat and various synths coming and going throughout, making it as vibey as they come. If this style of chiller house music is for you, keep an eye out for more from the Colombian producer. You won’t be disappointed!

EP Melody & Silence – The Knocks & Foster The People
After their hit “All About You” was such a major success, DJ/producers The Knocks once again team up with Foster The People for an EP of covers from some awesome 90s artists. Starting off covering the iconic The Verve track, “Bittersweet Symphony,” the group puts their unique spin on the prolific track. They then cover Beck’s “Devil’s Haircut,” & Gwen Stefani + Moby’s track “South Side.” This is a fun, little EP that hopefully is a taste of what’s to come from the dream collab.

Album WE ARE – Jon Batiste
Jon Batiste has been a powerhouse in rock and R&B for a while now and we hace just received his most recent album, WE ARE. The album is an awesome work of art that is soulful, powerful, and funky. Jon lays down his beautiful pipes to craft singing and songwriting that take this album to the next level. Some of our favorite tracks include “WE ARE,” “BOY HOOD,” & “FREEDOM.”

Album Justice – Justin Bieber
J Biebs is back with a new album that is surprisingly funky, fun, and features some incredible artists. Although he misses the mark a bit with his attempt at addressing racial and other injustices, Justice enlists some awesome singers and rappers to make it a unique piece of music from the boy wonder. Some of our favorite tracks from the album include “Peaches (ft. Daniel Caesar & Giveon),” “As I Am (ft. Khalid),” & “Unstable (ft. The Kid LAROI).”

Album WONDALAND – Teni
Nigerian singer/songwriter Teni is an upcoming star in the Nigerian Afro-pop world crafting uplifting and fun songs that make you feel good. On her debut album, WONDALAND, she continues to release feel-good tracks that will give you all the feels. Some of our favorite tracks from the album include “FOR YOU (ft. DaVido,” “GAME OVER,” & “DADS SONG.”
