5 Tracks for this Week’s Grind: Ta-Ku, Toro y Moi , Calvin Harris, Lost Weekend, Samantha Jade & Pitbull

Tracks we can’t stop listening to no matter how hard we try. This week’s picks include music from Ta-Ku, Toro y Moi , Calvin Harris, Lost Weekend, Samantha Jade & Pitbull.

1) “Down For You”, Ta-Ku feat. Alina Baraz

Reggie Matthews, better known as Ta-Ku or @takubeats, is quite a sensation. In the past couple of months he has opened his barber shop, launched his second EP “Songs To Make Up To” and takes pictures with a vibe akin to a self-created genre. “Down For You” features Ta-Ku’s relaxing instrumentals which aptly complement Alina’s sultry voice.

2) “Pitch Black”, Toro y Moi feat. Rome Fortune

Toro y Moi’s tracks have taken on a multitude of forms yet are all uniquely distinct. In “Pitch Black” he teams-up with Rome Fortune, who takes Toro y Moi’s shallow beat and falls right back onto the bouncy groove. 

3) “How Deep Is Your Love”, Calvin Harris & Disciples

Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Calvin Harris dedicated this song to her, right after publicly announcing how “insanely happy” he is. He brings the English band Disciples along with Ina Wroldsen on board to release this slow-burning house track that screams nothing but a chill afternoon by the sea.

4) “Unstoppable”, Lianne La Havas

Watch Lianne’s hypnotic and charming dance as she ponders about the scientific approach to love. Whether you’ve just fallen out of something that could’ve been, or started what you think is the perfect journey, let “Unstoppable” be your love anthem this week.

5) “Shake That”, Samantha Jade feat. Pitbull

If the name Samantha Jade doesn’t ring a bell, think back to the very first Step Up movie where she sang the eye catching movie-titled track. Nine years and an X-Factor crown later, she teams up with Mr. Worldwide to release this groovy anthem to fuel you up.
