JKriv JKriv releases a sweet sonic surprise this week on new label Leisure Group Recordings. A collection of warm tones and shimmering sonics show us another side to the Brooklyn based DJ and producer. While he’s in a chilled down mood, we thought it would be the perfect moment to hear his selections for the late night/ early morning hours. We head back to his after the club. The lights are turned down low, the drinks are flowing, and the shoes are kicked off. This is the playlist…

Everyone Back to Mine Playlist

Ed Longo & The Applied Arts Ensemble - Love On The Line

This is some real sophisticated listening right here from Ed Longo (producer of 'Stella' record from last year).

Sonia Whittingham - Sweet Sensation

A bit of Lover's Rock at the end of the night is essential.

Herbie Hancock - Tell Me A Bedtime Story

This whole LP gets played, to be fair, but this tune is just an entire atmosphere in and of itself.

Martin L Dumas Jr. - Attitude, Believe and Determination

Head nodding and joyous. The extended mix is like a 10 min long hug.

Tee Mac - Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

There's something so hopeful feeling about this groove, and I love to listen to positive music at the end of the night.

Donald Byrd - Kofi

I love the reserved intensity of this record, just ever-churning without letting completely loose.

Burt Bacharach - Something Big

This is Burt doing Bossa in both a slick and surprising way, and the sentiment of the song really hits too.

Larry Heard - Missing You

Just the absolute deepest of all time, period, the end.

Milton Nascimento & Lo Borges - Clube da Esquina No 2

An ethereal Balearic beauty from this classic record, soothing and spirit-lifting.

Tornado Wallace – Voices

With a hypnotic groove and gorgeous melodies that evoke an almost Peter Gabriel/Genesis-esque level of power pop, this track soars to an incredible peak and then floats back down for the sweetest landing possible.
