Aok's Digs

The songs I've scrobbled most in the past 3 months. If you haven't heard any of these gems, I highly recommend them
15Royksopp
So Easy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8Jdrq57BoM -- dedicated to Liberi Fatali (cause of the logo man). No but seriously, tihs one's awesome
14Nas
Made You Look

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gWD4g63RNI -- he lost a lot of consistency after Illmatic, but so many of his tracks have been and will continue to be in your face excellent. This as much as any other
13NY State of Mind

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKjj4hk0pV4 -- still probably my favorite hip- hop track ever.
12Burial, Four Tet and Thom Yorke
Ego

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91tcYBQBzL4 -- While most people would prefer Burial to work alone (and Kindred was certainly an amazing LP), I'd be stoked to hear him collaborate more. This track, as well as Moth, are 2 of the best things Bevan has ever done imo.
11James Zabiela
Perseverance (Beatless Repress)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmzWrnZa8Ks -- even though it lacks the absolutely gorgeous simplicity of the beatless repress, any version of this song is incredible. James Zabiela is a force to be reckoned with.
10Pretty Lights
Finally Moving

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk9XYQMRiLY -- Using that same guitar tone from 'You Wish' and transforming it into something new and different and gorgeous. Pretty Lights are some of the best in the business right now.
9Lotus
Nomad

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFchcJtqduo -- melt away. A lot of music seems to be heading in a direction similar to this, and I'm quite ok with that.
8Schoolboy Q
Oxy Music

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMCK-kZqw4k - Black Hippy / TDE has clearly sucked me in all the way. As much as Q isn't someone I would normally listen to, I find myself putting his stuff on all the time.
7Kendrick Lamar
ADHD

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4Zr9c7-b00 -- 'Got a high tolerance when your age don't exist' . When he's on, he flows better than any rapper under the age of 30. While he's still working out how to be a showman while performing live, he's already got at least one classic track to his name.
6Nightmares on Wax
You Wish

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8MLqYNGKdI -- Don't let the name confuse you, the simple guitar in the background and electric piano buzzing forward blend in incredible harmony.
5A Tribe Called Quest
Electric Relaxation

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdZx65JDNMI -- 'relax yourself girl, please settle down' . Been binging on Tribe lately, and while I prefer The Low End Theory to Midnight Marauders, this is the most easy to listen to and smooth thing they've ever put down
4Plaid
Sincetta

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-Vuop_F_hk -- perhaps the best single track polymath ever showed me. This is very eerie, incredibly smooth and keeps me on edge the entire track. Highly recommended
3Schoolboy Q
Hands on The Wheel Ft. A$AP Rocky

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyAbhDBaGh4 -- totally juvenile but oh so catchy. Sup chambered?
2Aphex Twin
Iz-Us

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLHtV_S2HZw -- the mellow closer to the incredibly disturbing Come to Daddy EP, RDJ's brilliant as ever, and it's nice that he's mellow here.
1Nicolas Jaar
Why Didn't You Save Me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGwmNtiXd1Q -- gives me the chills like no song I've ever heard before. I knew when lucidity and silentpotato both gave this a strong endorsement I had to check it out (plus nico jaar is a baller), but this is just levels beyond
