Welcome back to PHX Shuffle
Once again, I will be highlighting the talent that exists in my hometown. By shuffling through my Phoenix playlist and picking out three songs a week to share, we'll make everyone realize how much talent the valley has soon enough. It's time to shine a spotlight on the home to some of the future scene's brightest stars.
SAGE : YUNG JOEY x NAWLIDGE NICK
A great pairing over a great beat, what more can you ask for? The drawn out delivery from both vocalists perfectly compliment the SK8ZEN beat as they trade bars. The vibe of the track really does remind one of burning sage, with the strong presence, yet underlying calming sense that it gives off.
FOR DA TRUTH : SPEEDY AWOL
Speedy's voice at the beginning immediately creates an emotional investment for the song, while you get lost in the confessional tone of the track. The phone calls spaced through the song gives a feeling that you are right there next to AWOL as he tries to meet up with his friend.
RUNNING BACK : THE CHANGE ROLLERS
The song starts and so does my snapping. The guitar looping in the background is infectious from the get go, setting the base for a interesting vocal performance that really draws you into the song. It's really fun honestly and I couldn't get it out of my headphones after pressing play for the first time, so go check it out.
