Mixtape Monday: Vibe shift
This week's picks include Overmono, Cool Company, and a throwback hit from Jamiroquai. (No, not that one.)
This is the sixth edition of Mixtape Monday, where Activision Blizzard King employees share what they’re listening to while they’re creating the games you know and love.
(Digging this series? Drop us a line and let us know; we’d love to hear from you.)
Last week’s picks were all waiting for the drop; this week’s are a slinky, slow-riding ~vibe~.
Without further ado:
Cool Company and Nic Hanson, “Floatin’.” If you don’t song along to this in your own falsetto, ur doin it wrong. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Roxanne Ross, UI artist, Beenox)
Terrace Martin feat. Arin Ray and Elena Pinderhughes, “Beige.” The rhythm section on this groovy record is the very opposite of bland. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Alejandro Rodriguez, QA functional tester, Activision)
Stephen Taranto, “Quantum Leap.” Who needs coffee to kickstart your day when prog rock exists? Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Maddie Carnline, QA functional tester, Activision)
Overmono, “Good Lies.” It’s jittery, it’s spacey, and it’s just catchy enough to latch onto your brain and never let go. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Eden Bovi, in-game support, Blizzard)
That’s it for this week!
