NYC’s own Branchez no doubt bubbled up in 2013. His solo jams landed him on a tour of North America with Paper Diamond and Zeds Dead. With a diverse style, ranged from up beat jams like “Treat You Right” to accessible, new age soul jam remixes – just check out his Rihanna flip. Branchez ended 2013 with his first mix on Diplo’s BBC show and follows it right up with this new one. The psychedelic hip-hop style of this fits well as an instrumental, but I can’t help but think it’s about time Branchez works with some quality MCs and New York should have no shortage of that. Either way, this one is worth checking out. Warm up to this while we dream of spring.
