Erykah Badu Blings The Loop Up


Back from our ‪London Film Festival‬ hiatus, our loop returns with Erykah Badu at the top. The soulful diva has completely reworked one of Drake’s latest smashes, ‘Hotline Bling’. Her “(But You Caint Use My Phone Mix)” widely improves on an already excellent, Flash & The Pan sampling original, which a few weeks ago came also close to top our chart.

Highest entry of the week is Baltimore’s favourites Beach House with one of the standout tracks from their surprise new album, ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’, their second in as many months. Also new, the latest tracks from Eleanor Friedberger; Deerhunter; Sophie; Majical Cloudz; Mark Kozelek; Tinashe; Hype Williams; Shackleton; Operator Music Band and a colaboration between classically trained maestros Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm.
