Viigo

Viigo are used to fully documenting their emotions through vocalist, MJ Hancock’s lyrics.

Like so many musicians, Viigo use music to explore anxiety, despite there still being a taboo about the subject, and nothing says it better than their new single ‘Paranoia’, which we are sharing today along with an excellent playlist.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – First World Problem

This dude just keeps getting better and better. The horns on this new one are awesome and the hook is truly clever.

Tabu Ley Rochereau – Hafi Deo

I put this on at pretty much any family get together I attend. The backup vocal hook is super catchy, nice airy track with a sweet bridge a little over 3 minutes in.

Nohelani Cypriano – Lihue

The intro to this track gets me every time. Sweet dreamy vibes throughout.

Janet Jackson – Got ’Til It’s Gone

The descending bass line on this is perfect and outside the box. J Dilla ghost-produced this track, if by ghost-produced you mean he got his credit snaked by the powers that be.

Empress Of – Woman Is A Word

This one is hard as hard gets. Empress Of is our collective favorite going right now.

Nite-Funk – Let Me Be Me

Our new summer jam. Let’s you be you.

Neon Indian – News from the Sun

The whole album feels like a tape of a radio show passed from hand to hand, this closer is the Parade era Prince moment.

OutKast – Da Art Of Storytellin’

One of the most haunting tracks from the Dungeon Family, one of our biggest influences when we make Viigo tracks.

serpentwithfeet – flickering

This is just plain beautiful. The vocal is out of the park.

Viigo’s single, ‘Paranoia’ is out now via 10K Islands.
