Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
With the weather finally getting warmer around here, I'm finding myself drawn to a lot of "chill in the sun with a drink" tracks, and that's "Beat it Up" by Ozzyb/Santi featuring DJ Yin & Tay Iwar to a T. This is a track that I started moving along to almost as soon as it started: the beat worms it's way into you right away, and is punched up with a beach-ready top-line, all working perfectly to support vocals that just roll across your speakers.
Check out the track below (and a heads up that the lyrics are just a little NSFW):
"Beat it Up" is a really good indie R&B track, taking a blend of both a soulful R&B feel, with a downtempo/poolside backing, combining into a song that I feel is probably going to be added into a lot of my personal summer playlists, as it will be perfect there...the only problem being I don't know that I'll ever be able to get it out of my head after.
This is totally me falling a bit down a rabbit hole, as "Beat it Up" is produced by Bankyondbeatz (whose "Fale Comigo" was featured last week), and I have to give a shout-out as well to Oreoluwa Peters for passing "Beat it Up" along to me on Twitter.
At the end of the day, I'm always a sucker for damn good music.
Well, I tried my best (...like I actually have control over anything when it comes to Apple Music), and even though we are missing a couple of tracks, the DSD Playlist - Feb 17 is out now, and it's pretty damn great.
Hope you enjoy it too!
....and be sure to come back tomorrow, as I will be putting the March DSD playlist together for you then (felt weird to wait a week into April to do it...so yeah. TOMORROW)
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
