Logistixx - "Dreams" Logistixx has an extremely sophisticated flow -- seemingly formless stream-of-consciousness as if it were off the dome, but much better written. In "Dreams," the flow is wholly unpredictable and thus fully engaging. The story Logistixx tells is detailed and full of images that stick around, the type of lyrics that reward with more listens. The beat is pure '90s bliss. Tell them haters to swallow.

Myrical - "Motivated" featuring Jasmine Love Myrical delivers an impassioned couple of verses with focus and clarity, helped in no small part by the simple but effective kinetic typography. The lyrics here are simple but have an understated, assured style: "Stay so authentic/Flow wet like I dove off in it." The Jasmine Love hook is cliché, but it sounds nice. This is a well-executed recipe for Myrical.
