May is winding down, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t turning up. Missy Elliott and Future prove you can indeed improve on perfection with a couple of killer remixes featuring Lil Kim, Eve, Trina and Kendrick Lamar, respectively. Lil Yachty dropped his debut full-length Teenage Emotions and it is full of emotional bangers. We also “Get Lost” with Washed Out, come “Face to Face” with Daphni and slo-wine with Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith. Listen to these picks and more in our latest edition of Best Tracks of the Week.

Daphni---"Face to Face"

Daphni, one of several aliases belonging to Caribou's Dan Snaith, has always demonstrated an unpredictable quality unique among his many projects. So when news broke of an upcoming compilation of unreleased Daphni tracks, we got pretty excited. Even more so when we heard "Face to Face," a brief taster of what is in store from this issue of goodies from the vault.

Death Grips---“Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber Megamix)”

In case you sometimes just need to wile out to 22 minutes of bizarreness, Death Grips has got you covered with their megamix. Spanning noisy gabber, dark ambient, fuzzy experimental dub, and sounds you probably haven’t heard before along with strange vocals from MC Ride as always, give it a listen if you need to take a break from planet Earth.

Future---"Mask Off Remix" ft. Kendrick Lamar

Just when we thought “Mask Off” was basically a perfect track, Kung Fu Kenny comes through with not one, but two verses. Simply put, it is bliss.

G-Eazy---"Maximum"

In honor of his 28th birthday, Bay Area rapper G-Eazy unleashed a 9th Wonder produced track inspired by going hard on everybody, and saying fuck off to anybody who has a problem with it. Featuring pared-back production and an absolutely slapping bassline, Eazy exults in liquor, drugs, women and all the other excesses of life.

Kali Uchis---"Tyrant" ft. Jorja Smith

Rapidly rising artist Kali Uchis had this to say of her new single with the equally rapidly rising Jorja Smith: "[it's about] wanting to stay in the haze of puppy love forever and never face the power struggles, because that’s your only real escape from the cold realities of life." In their capable hands, this feeling has never been given such carefully crafted nuance.

Kirko Bangz---"Swang N Bang"

Back in 2011, Kirko Bangz burst onto the scene with “Drank In My Cup,” a single that was equal parts ode to drinking and an homage to Houston's singular culture. Yesterday, the 300 Entertainment repped artist released “Swang N Bang,” an infectious, G-funk inflected summer tune that puts on once again for H-Town.

Lil Yachty---"All Around Me" ft. YG & Kamaiyah

Lil Yachty’s highly anticipated debut album Teenage Emotions finally dropped today, and it’s got a healthy 21 tracks of bubblegum trap to chew on. If we have to choose, one of our personal faves is “All Around Me” featuring YG and Kamaiyah. Press play and get melancholically turnt up.

Missy Elliott---"I’m Better Remix" ft. Lil Kim, Eve & Trina

Everything Missy touches turns to gold, but when you add Lil Kim, Eve, and Trina into the mix, the fierceness levels are completely off the charts. Missy takes it to the trap but keeps it freaky with the the occasional shriek and a sinister hook.

The Pollyseeds---"Intentions"

Grammy-nominated producer, saxophonist and Kendrick Lamar collaborator Terrace Martin just announced he’s quietly been piecing together a soul-snatching new musical collective called The Pollyseeds. Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington and Marlon Williams are just a few of the names he’s tapped to be part of the expansive project. Martin also released the group’s first single, “Intentions,” which features Los Angeles-based emcee Chachi, who people might recognize more readily by his other stage name, Problem.

Washed Out---"Get Lost"

Washed Out, one of the bands who stood proudly at the forefront of the chillwave movement, have made a surprise return. "Get Lost" is their first release in nearly half a decade, and their time out of the spotlight has given rise to a radically different new sound, one that demonstrates a robust maturity.
