Hello faithful readers. Welcome to our bi-monthly series The Better Half. flowsfordays will be curating a playlist showcasing the best SoundCloud releases in the last 15 days (give or take, depending on how many days are in the month.) Instead of perusing through your SoundCloud feed, you will now have a simple way to hear the best of the best in one easy to navigate playlist. All you have to do is press play.
Chicago hip hop is the main theme of this one. While we have hits outside of the city, the center is on the windy city. A lot of these have just been released (Iris Temple, Beach Jesus x Lasko, etc.) and some have been building buzz for a week (or so) now (Ajani Jones, The Cool Kids.)
I’m happy to report Baltimore’s Butch Dawson just posted a playlist of Basement Rap Radio (learn more here) which is quiet excellent. As always, skip around, play just one song, or go through the whole thing. Also, be sure to follow our official SoundCloud as we are constantly re-posting dope songs. We also post all of our sets on the page. Our next playlist will hit December 15th…so watch out for that. You can check out our previous bi-monthly playlists here.
