Back to Reality

(Stones Throw)

Sounds Like: Long-lost funk and electro relics from the mid-’80s collected by Peanut Butter Wolf, some of them glammed up with the help of Dam-Funk.

Free Association: Getchyo rollerskates ’n’ shades on and hit the streets with a boombox.

For Fans Of: Prince, Rufus, Chic, scultped afros, steps, Coming to America.

Maceo Plex

Life Index

(Crosstown Rebels)

Sounds Like: Not entirely for House nerds, AKA Maetrik, this is a solid debut of dancefloor workouts from space mixing ’90s dance music with futurism.

Free Association: Obsessed with remixes? This is great fodder for your DJ fantasies.

For Fans Of: Black Box, Daft Punk x Technotronic, raves, vogueing.

Asher Roth with Nottz


(School Boy)

Sounds Like: For fanboys (like me) waiting for 2011’s The Spaghetti Tree, this is a lovely eight-track collab EP with the Va. producer who’s worked with Busta a bunch.

Free Association: Each song uses samples smartly and has its own slick production.

For Fans Of: Eminem, Drake, Morrisville, gingers, blunt cruisin’.

Chrisette Michele

Let Freedom Reign

(Island/Def Jam)
