WEEKEND TIME AGAIN and another playlist for your ears. Got a nice mix of genres for your listening pleasure this weekend, let us know what you think and tweet the list @AfterNyne.
Espa – Rodney feat. Eric Arc Elliot
Espa returns with “Rodney”, a collaboration with Erick Arc Elliot of The Flatbush Zombies, and taken from her forthcoming, ‘LG60’ EP, which is slated for release later this Summer. Premiered via The Line of Best Fit, ‘Rodney’ speaks volumes of talent, with Espa’s stunning, and haunting vocals, cascading over the expert production, and perfectly complimented by Erick’s trademark flow.

Nick Brewer – Talk To Me feat. Bibi Bourelly

The couple’s lyrics spar with flirtatious statements on an addictive and recognisable beat (sampling Crystal Water’s “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless.)
