If there's one person who knows how to craft a vibe, it's undoubtedly Yung Bae. Taking inspiration from the nostalgic realms of city pop, disco, future funk, and more, the producer and artist crafts music meant to be experienced; the sort of timeless dance music meant to groove to and lose yourself in. This notion comes to life in his latest collaborative single, "Straight Up Relaxin'," featuring Australian powerhouse duo Cosmo's Midnight.
To celebrate the release of the idyllic new track, we asked Yung Bae to put together a vibe of his own making. Taking us on a sonic journey, Yung Bae shares with us his soundtrack to Art Basel.
Lion Babe - "Rockets"
One of my all time favorite tracks. I remember hearing this the first time and it felt like I was transported to the '60s.
Drugdealer - "Suddenly"
I've been a massive fan of Drugdealer and Weyes Blood for some time now and then finding out they have music together was the best surprise.
03 Greedo, Kenny Beats - "Soul Food"
This dude Kenny refuses to miss I swear. Every time this comes on it makes me want some soul food to bounce along to the track with.
Tyler, The Creator - "Best Interest"
I've been a fan of tyler since I was in high school so it's been crazy watching him grow and evolve and this quickly became my fav track from him.
Disclosure - "Angels Fear To Tread"
Disclosure was another duo I was lucky enough to watch grow as well. Being a fan of theirs and also being rooted in sampling it was sooooo cool to see them really dive in and sample more and more.
The Doobie Brothers - "Echoes of Love"
Anyone who knows me knows I refuse to shut up about yacht rock. And I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. I grew up with a ton of doobie brothers and this was always my favorite feel good track from them.
Oliver Cheatham - "Get Down Saturday Night"
One of the best funk tracks out there. Each time I hear it I think of that dance scene in Ex Machina. Then I think why don't I have an android girlfriend to dance to disco with me?
Jungle - "All of the Time"
Can't get enough of these guys! Their new album is hands down my favorite of the year and I can't wait to see what these guys have planned!
Shelley - "Sweet Va Breeze"
This is some real Motown! Shelley truly has one of the best voices in the game and this is a go to song for me every time I'm feeling down.
Myd - "We Found It"
Myd has such a unique sound and seeing him collab with Bakar was such a welcome surprise.
