1. Ookay – Better Off
I’ve been exploring a lot of new directions, this track is definitely a new sound for me. Coachella will be the first time I get to debut this song in the live set, can’t wait to show everyone!
2. Jain – Makeba
I’ve been inspired a lot by Jain lately. Super excited to finally see her perform at Coachella.
3. Blood Orange – You’re Not Good Enough
Another one I’m pumped to see in the desert.
4. Chris Lake – Operator
Awesome track, Chris Lake is a beast!
5. Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Hunnybee
This was a HUGE bus tour anthem this year, gonna lose it when I hear it live.
6. Teedra Moses – Be Your Girl (Kaytranada Edition)
Huge fan of Kaytranada, excited to finally catch his set.
7. Howlin’ Wolf – Smokestack Lighnin’
I absolutely love the blues, and this is one of the most epic songs ever written for sure. Look out for a couple surprises in my set that were directly inspired by this tune.
8. Lxury – 10 Feet Street
Lxury is one of my all time favorite producers, such unique style and a great soundtrack for traveling.
9. Disclosure & Khalid – Talk
Thats my boyyy! He’s gonna crush this year.
10. Toro y Moi – Ordinary Pleasure
Huge summer tune, definitely my Coachella pregame anthem.
