Something worth mentioning here is that this week, SoundCloud announced that its glorious ad-free days have come to an end. According to Billboard, there will now be promoted tracks in your SoundCloud stream as well as 15 to 30-second ads in the beginning of some tracks, à la YouTube. Let’s hope it doesn’t interfere too much with this playlist, which, for now, is safe.
This week was pretty good otherwise, with Brit-funk jams from Only Real, the triumphant return of Deerhoof, perfect plasticity from Yung Bae, oh and Killer Mike and El-P, back for Run The Jewels, Part 2. Listen to all that and more below.
