Listen now: Buro 24/7 Middle East Weekend Playlist 39
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Emile Haynie, The Notorious B.I.G and more...
Kickstarting our playlist this weekend is an entrancing song from Jarryd James, a promising newcomer from Brisbane Australia. We then transition into an Emile Haynie track, which features Devonté Hynes, Sampha and our cover artist Charlotte Gainsbourg (pictured above) with Sampha Sisay's goosebump-provoking dreamy vocals.
Nick Klein's heart-thumping creation, Paralyzed follows for track number three, and will have you feeling the blood pumping through your veins for the weekend ahead, while a cool song from The Kite String Tangle called Arcadia steals the fourth spot. This is smoothly followed by American DJ and mixtape composer Terry Urban – who's known for his mixtures of popular hip-hop music – and an unsuspecting remix featuring both FKA Twigs and rapper The Notorious B.I.G entitled Video Girl Dreams.
Next up is a Leks River track that features a comical snippet from the film Pineapple Express, and then we slow it back down with a FYFE favourite, For You. Our playlist then does a 360-degree flip back to where we started, as relaxed vibes flow throughout with a Mixpak record – home to Buro 24/7 Middle East's regular playlist artist Vybz Kartel – from new artist Murlo.
Rounding up the playlist, our last two songs are ideal to wind down to after a long week at work, with All We Do by Oh Wonder and the soulful sounds of RY X, however, this time we've chosen his 8-month-old track Sweat.
