Ille Alushaj of The Pop Manifesto is back again with a one-stop February playlist.
MADE resident curator Ilirjana Alushaj hits us with her MADE Shuffle picks for February. MADE Fashion Week might be over for this season but the party hasn’t stopped!
MssingNo – Scope
I really like this track because MssingNo is able to achieve a perfect balance between a sound that is quite soft, yet maintaining his signature dark undertones. And honestly, the whole EP “Fones” is highly recommended.
Future – Low Life (feat. The Weeknd)
There is a world lot of sadness and sexuality here, and this is exactly the right thing I want to hear from a Future and The Weeknd collaboration.
Porches – Car
“Car” is a pretty simple song, but there is definitely something special about it. A little reminiscent of the sounds of Cleaners From Venus, which is definitely a good thing to bring on the feels.
Beyoncé – Formation
I love “Formation”, the production and lyrics are both fire examples of pop with a political statement. Not sure what to say to you if you don’t like this though, you should.
Dean Lyon – Only You
Always have a soft for UK house and bouncy baselines and so “Only You” is fits my mood, most days of my life.
“Ilirjana Alushaj is an all-round talent originally from Australia and now in living L.A. via New York. They’re lucky to have her. Originally on the musical map with her band Apache Beat, these days you’re likely to find her working closely with the likes of Puff Daddy and record producer Hit-Boy, writing TV shows, DJing and running her own publication and label, The Pop Manifesto. Like Ilirjana herself, her mix is a good time with impeccable taste and a smart sense of humour. Press play and feel feelings.” — i-D Online
