Catch a Vibe, Volume 4

Listen to GRAE New York's Spring 2017 playlist.


It’s officially spring, and our Catch a Vibe, Volume 4 playlist is in full bloom! Each song has a little bounce and will make you feel some type of way.

Catch a Vibe Volume 4

LA-based songwriter/producer Unlike Pluto starts off the seasonal sounds with the anthemic Everything Black featuring Philly-based singer Mike Taylor. For those of us who rock all black everything, this is our new theme song! Later in the playlist Unlike Pluto returns with the grungy dance track Worst In Me. Don’t let the beat fool you. This song will make you feel like someone’s brought out the worst in you when it’s over.

GoldLink keeps the vibes going with a little Meditation, while New York’s own Stelios Phili lifts our spirits with Lord Have Mercy. If you’ve seen Vogue’s Fade 2 video with Teyana Taylor, you may recognize Phili’s track as the the soundtrack for the visual editorial.

Mod Sun’s latest album Movie is not one to be overlooked (nor is his short movie Album). We’ll be reviewing his new projects on GRAE New York soon, but for now get into his hippy hop groove with She Just Wanna Dance and radio-ready Beautiful Problem featuring gnash and Maty Noyes.

No Catch a Vibe playlist is complete without a little Major Lazer. Walshy Fire was certainly not lazy when he curated the global sounds of No Laziness featuring Nigeria’s Ketchup and Trinidad’s Bunji Garlin. It nicely compliments Major Lazer’s lastest single Run Up featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj. If you follow us on, you’ll notice Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You was quickly becoming our most played track of 2017 until Major Lazer flipped it and reversed it in their reggae remix with Kranium and Nyla. Even Ed tweeted “It’s naughty”. We couldn’t agree more!
