Don’t Do Drugs—Listen to JINCE’s [Devil’s Lettuce] Playlist instead

Kids, there’s a holiday coming up this week that’s touted around the world as some kind of counter-cultural celebration around cannabis legalization. I don’t know about you, but I fully intend to show my support from afar—Step 1, this playlist.

Every week, JINCE scours through hundreds of SoundCloud tracks to find the best new gems by breaking artists around the world.

Jince‘s playlists are rumored to cure the common cold. Anyways… check his top picks of the week below:

kiiara – “Whippin” ft. Felix Snow

You should know who kiiara is by now. She came out of nowhere a couple years ago and flipped the entire bubblegum trap world on its sticky ass. She’s been keeping low for a few months since she released her debut album, “low kii savage“, but now she’s back with some more trap gold. She teams up with Felix Snow, the master genius behind the boards, on this staggered, distorted anthem for the fuccboi and fuccgirl in all of us.

Bishop Briggs – “Dead Man’s Arms”

Bishop Briggs is going to take over the pop-soul world – you heard it here first. On “Dead Man’s Arm’s,” her voice bellows from a place so deep while her croons seem to rumble the speakers. It’s is a track from Bishop‘s newly released self-titled EP. Bishop Briggs‘s on a rocket and all we can do is try and catch a glimpse — lucky for me, I managed to snag a ticket to see her perform in Brooklyn next month.

A R I Z O N A – “Electric Touch”

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/317114218″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Speaking of performances, can I tell you how bad I feel about missing A R I Z O N A‘s show in NYC a few months ago? Gah, I’m still kicking myself and hearing “Electric Touch” is like pouring salt in the wound. This is the first track they’ve released to us from their debut album, “Gallery”, that’s dropping in about a month on 5/19. Stay tuned for more blissful tracks from them!

fly anakin. – “lunch money” prod. by Thelonious Martin

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/317377747″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

ok, enough polished electronic sounds – time to bring in the boom bap hip hop. “lunch money” is a track which fly anakin. ducks and weaves around the nostalgic production by Thelonious Martin. It’s a short track at only a minute and a half, but it’s more than enough to give us the summertime cookout vibe. I’ve been watching fly anakin. for a while now and have been more and more impressed with every release. He’s got an ear for beats and a flow that’s precise and lackadaisical at the same time.

Benji Lewis – “For You”

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/316276129″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Last but not least, this serene new track by an artist on the rise from Australia, Benji Lewis. There’s this lush mix of folky vocals with downtempo electronic production with a slight dash of trap hi-hats. I really love where Benji is taking this track and his overall sound – hit play and let “For You” wash over you in a cloudy haze.
