"What You Need (The Weeknd Cover)" by Banks

What You Need (The Weeknd Cover) by Banks

let me get some friction on your lips

The LA songstress, Banks has been dubbed as the female counterpart of The Weeknd and I can’t disagree. It’s fitting how she covered one of the songs that made Abel Tesfaye famous! Adding a feminine touch to a song that is already sensual, Banks made the song even more sultry that it’s dripping with pure ecstasy and hearing it is such a sweet sweet treat.

I received the most of interesting request from typhoonn the other day about a making out playlist. I really hope you like this one. I had the best time curating it. If I could, I would put the whole album of The xx (first one) but I ended up picking songs of the same tune and mood. For the title, it’s that movement a person does when he/she is trying to remember that electric feeling, yeah you know what I’m talking about.


P.S. I made an alternate cover this morning using a screencap from Across The Universe so I wasn’t able to include it in the zip but feel free to use this one.

london kush by ndeluv

say yes or say no because baby I’m about to light it

Following the steps of jj, Snoop Dogg and Kid Cudi who made a tribute to their favorite substance, ndeluv also gives an ode to some posh mary jane and to the late Aaliyah. Taking some of our favorite lyrics from Are You That Somebody?, ndeluv created a coma-inducing track that makes you want to lay in your bed and recreate that kush feeling.

Discover more music from ndeluv from his myspace-themed tumblr.

Recommended to: The Weeknd, Aaliyah, Drake

Swim Good (Diving Into The Unknown)
Unsure of what I really wanted, I’ve been sulking and desperately trying numerous things that would suit me for these past few months. I was tired of listening to other people suggesting that I do this or I do that. After so much thinking, it hit me that I should be working on achieving what I really want and not ignore my dreams and passion in pursuit of money or another citizenship which will not make me happy. I’m shoving away all my fears and I’m trying to do what I really want for myself. It can be scary chasing my desires but here I am diving into the unknown.
If you need so motivation, you should take a listen to this mix. It helped me out a lot when I was looking a for a job.

High For This (The Weeknd Cover) by Ellie Goulding

Don’t be scared, I’m right here
Even though, you don’t roll
Trust me boy, you wanna be high for this

My ears yearn for Ellie Goulding. It has been 2 years since she released Lights and it’s about time that she tease us with some new material. This rework of The Weeknd’s High For This from House of Balloons features Goulding’s signature airy vocals and production from Xaphoon Jones. I know Ellie Goulding is set out to release a new record this year and this track will keep us warm enough until it comes out.
