Jess Kent is one of our favourite, if not our favourite new Aussie artist this year. From Get Down, to 1993 (No Chill) to Sweet Spot, she’s banging out the hits like a superstar and we appreciate that consistency.
She was part of our Future Class Of 2016, and her latest hit Sweet Spot solidifies that she’s a big deal this year (we told ya).
As it turns out, she’s not just an A+ hitmaker, she’s also an A+ tune selecta. We got her to put together a playlist of what she’s gettin’ down to right now and she has delivered.
Get amongst it below and if you want to see her live in the flesh, she’s playing at This That in Newcastle next month alongside Schoolboy Q, Elliphant and Sampa The Great. Get ya deets here.
1. Crooked Colours – Step
This track is perfect for all weekend long.
2. Goldlink – Fall In Love (Feat. Ciscero)
I love their radio tracks.. came across this on Soundcloud- I think it’s just funky and breezy.
3. Danny Brown – 25 Bucks (Feat. Purity Ring)
I love Danny Brown. I love Purity Ring. This track is life.
4. Moonbase Commander- Greyhound
I caught some of Moonbase Commander at Splendour… It was dope.
5. Moonbase Commander- Paces- Work Me Out (ft. Rye Rye)
I’m a huge supporter of Paces ~obvs~ and I think this little remix is super dope.
6. Leikeli- Money
I love Fuck The Summer Up.. I love this project.. She is dope. I want a ski mask.
7. XXYYXX- Golden (Ft. DJ Txtmeback)
It’s nice to hear XXYYXX do something so summery and hiphop. Ellie Goulding + Riff Raff? It works.
8. 808 State – In Yer Face (Bicep Remix)
Sad that I just missed Bicep this weekend in Sydney. So this track makes the playlist.
9. Motez- The Vibe (Astronomar remix)
I’m a fan of Astronomar, came across this on Soundcloud.. cool to see them remixing a fellow Adelaidian!
10. Smileyface- Mary Jane (Jamie xx remix)
I love the future garage/ house/ Jamie xx vibe mixed with some hiphop.
11. Banoffee – With Her (Roland Tings Remix)
Banoffee is one Aussie to watch, and after a friend put me onto Roland Tings I caught them at Secret Garden and have been hooked ever since!
