The minute I heard yaeji's "raingurl" I knew this was the song I wanted to build this week's playlist from. It's one of her most uptempo dance numbers to date but the careful layering of beats and moods show the utmost care. This was a bit of a hard week to crack: not because there wasn't a lot of good music but because the structure and atmosphere of each song varied so wildly. My general approach was to layer in perceived tonal shifts to build momentum and then back away from it with more subtle pieces. Some of my long time favorites are included, like DAWN and Rihanna, but this is really a playlist dedicated to exciting emerging artists who are pushing boundaries of what we listen to.
