Ohmega Watts “Emeralds”
A SOHH favorite drops a surprise single! Ohmega Watts is back with Emeralds, a single that showcases his trademark approach to sampling soulful records. This looks to be the first in a series of several new singles.

TwoDaystoAlaska “Beginnings”
Revisiting this one today. TwoDaystoAlaska sent a newer mix but it’s listed as a “private” stream. Either way, this is one of our favorite instrumental tracks from the Cult Classic Records label. Here is the older original mix:

Violentlyill “Divine”
Another dope submission from Violentlyill. Really into how this one develops. Had my head nodding for the duration.

Liam.M “I Don’t Need It”
We’ve featured Liam.M several times in the past (6 and counting I believe)… he always delivers. This is another head nodder.

Tonga “First Things First”
Mellow. Lofi. Soulful. This is a relaxing new instrumental track from Tonga.

Tonga is a multi-instrumentalist/producer out of San Diego. Born into a musical family, he was influenced by an early and constant exposure to various styles of music: Motown, reggae, jazz, and his father’s own Polynesian fusion music.

Bluestaeb “Alright”
Bossa Nove rhythms and trap drums… this works well here. It reminds me a little bit of Sango. This is a newly release single via Jakarta Records from his upcoming release Everything Is Always a Process.

Soul Choppa “Sunset”
Dusty soulful golden era boom bap. This is a stylistic nod to Pete Rock and other golden era production. Really nice vibes on this.

Deca “Petrified Forest”
Unapologetically boom bap. This is a new single from Flux by NYC-based artist/producer, Deca. It’s indicative of what you can expect to hear on the rest of the Flux album.

Tall Black Guy “Make It For Forever And Ever”
TBG has some of the best chops. So much soul, so on point. Had this on repeat all morning.

Air Kalo “Midtown”
Heads nods here… it has that grit and soul. Channels Kaytranada, Dilla, and even some Dust at points. We’ll be looking for more from this producer.

OtterNotBe “Who Am I”
Future boom bap from American producer OtterNotBe. Some nice jazzy overtones on this one too.

Raphy “Why I Hate Myself”
This one has some funk to it. Nice dusty sampling here from Raphy. Not sure why it’s given this title because it feels decidedly upbeat. Stay until the end. Maybe that’s our clue?

TADASHI “Manwitdaplan”
Spacey groove on this one. Nice soulful sounds. One of our favorites from 2018.

Xavier[EXS22] “She Makes Me Feel Like…”
The artist’s description sums it up perfectly…

If you are looking for a song that features a happy and calming atmospheric hip-hop/jazz-hop style tune that has a euphoric and calming feel to it, my original instrumental production ‘She Makes Me Feel Like…’ would fit well with what you are looking for.

radicule “Oasis”
Always nice to hear repeat submissions from past favorites. Radicule drops another one on us. Oasis is trappy and soulful. It feels right.

Teck-Zilla “Turbulence Musique”
This one is perfect for your travel soundtrack. Mellow soulful vibes. The track draws inspiration from Teck-Zilla’s frequent travels.

Benhurzz “Artesian”
Delightfully headnoddable track from UK based producer. A calming jazz-infused trap/hip-hop lo-fi instrumental. Had this on repeat for a while now.

Missiles Over Moscow “Right Before Midnight”
Dope chill hop vibes on this one. Jazzy and soulful, it’s an easy listen and left us wanting to hear more. Shouts to our friends at Stereofox.com.

Pablo Zuazo “Macaco Nu Jazz”
From the opening notes, I knew I was going to dig this. Really dope rhodes piano on this one that sets the mood just right. Looking forward to hearing Pablo’s next track.

C.O.W. “$hanghai Mone¥ EP”
This was unexpected. A pretty captivating listen with all the twists and turns. They produce and play mostly instrumental electronic music, which spans from obscure jazz interludes to electrified club beats. It’s tough to nail down an apples to apples comparison but it’s somewhere in between Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke.

VIOLENTLYILL “Clairvoyance (feat. DJ Koncept)”
This is dope. Video is awesome too. Ambient chilled out dreamy melodic hip-hop. DJ Koncept features on the cuts.

CarnivoreBeatz “The Punisher”
This feels like it’s just waiting on someone to wreck it with some bars. Yet another producer from Switzerland dropping some heat in our inbox. Grimey boom bap.

Product_90 “Get Tha Butta”
Not much better than hearing an impressive beat from a producer you’ve never heard of. Really dig how this one continues to build. Keeps the track moving.

Thelonious Martin “They Don’t Know (instrumental)”
Coalmine Records sends over an instrumental from the Chicago-based producer, Thelonious Martin. You may recognize the familiar sample.

Aurka “Lotus”
Aurka redeems a day of mediocre submissions with this gem. Lotus features smooth instrumentation and great arc on this one. Reminds me a bit of Bonobo.

Mild Surprise “Outdoors No More”
Nice lo-fi instrumental hip-hop track here. Digging the sample here.

Michum “Ran Away”
German producer sends a mellowed out soulful instrumental “Ran Away”. The vocal sample draws out fond old memories of good times. A nice track to relax to.

J Poetic “Xtian”
Lo fi hip-hop instrumental created to celebrate the memory of the recent passing of a youth in Portland by the name of Christian Chaparro.

Balance Both (Imperial Remix instrumental)
Imperial drops a dope remix for this Abdominal single featuring Chali 2na of Jurassic 5.

DJ Efechto “Gimme a Minute”
