Head over to his homepage and click play, and you’ll see that New Orleans producer and DJ Jim-E Stack has a prrrreeetty good idea of what a makes a sick beat. And why wouldn’t he? He’s been making them for years, including this translucent remix of Sky Ferriera’s smash, “Everything Is Embarrassing,” or his latest single, the serene banger, “Is It Me.” We wanted to know what songs he couldn’t live without, so here they are.
Every one of Arca’s songs is like a symphony of its own. I’m obsessed with him.
I love how raw and unaffected Purple’s sound is. It’s about communicating a feeling.
One of the most emotive songs I’ve heard in a minute. Peace to Four Tet man.
My favorite chop & screw ever.
I first heard this song in a Total Freedom mix. I think it’s a Justin Bieber acapella over a Steve Reich and Pat Metheny record.
Rizzla’s been making some of my favorite club music of late.
I secretly want to play drums in Inc.
Ready For The World drums veiled by a melodic ether.
Dubbel Dutch can flip a grime instrumental like no other.
