A short time ago Pikachunes drenched us in the filthy love of his latest remix, a brain-blasting take on Fascinator’s dirty minded tune Oh Bukake. Ever since then, we’ve been addicted to everything he outputs.
Earlier in the week Wells treated us to his top 10 tunes of the year, an easy-listening list brimming with rock and Australiana. Your second instalment comes today from Pika, who brings a serving of hip-hop, nu-disco remixes and a healthy Aussie selection to boot.
Which tunes will make your NYE playlist? Take the sage advice of Pikachunes, lord of the Melbourne dance scene.
Soft Hair – Lying Has To Stop
The first single from their self titled debut album is a perfect mix of of sex and sophistication. I’ve always admired Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust’s individual arrangements of songs and I think as collaborative effort this song is prime example of what both have to offer.
A Tribe Called Quest – We The People
The hardest hitting, most relevant hip hop track of the year. R.I.P Phife.
Ola Kvernberg – The Mechanical Fair (Todd Terje Remix)
The king of remix comes back again with yet another soulful, orchestral masterpiece.
For me the combination of a very nostalgic backbeat with Noname’s effortless flow makes you just want to bounce down the street.
The Avalanches – Because I’m Me
Nick Cave – I Need You
In a year of personal loss this song has been my rock. So much emotion. So many feels.
Solange – Don’t Touch My Hair
Such an amazing record. I cannot hear this track and not move.
Isaiah Rashad – Free Lunch
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma – Love’s Refrain
This is an ultimate low-fi eargasm.
Holy Serpent – Purification By Fire
Arguably my favourite local live band this year. Balls to the wall, hard hitting stoner metal at it’s finest.
