Weirdo Kanye Reworks and Skrillex's Pure Joy in THUMP's Seven Most Played

This week's roundup of the songs and mixes we've been playing around the office is a hair more happy than usual.
March 25, 2016, 3:15pm

Blame Chance the Rapper, but this week around THUMP HQ we've gravitated toward songs a hair more joyful than weeks past. Whether that's the Chicago rapper's sunny guest turn on Skrillex's Hundred Waters remix or Mall Grab's gleeful house flip of the ultra-lightbeam gospel of Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands," all things bright and beautiful were on repeat.

We've also dug our heels into Ametsub's cloud-parting techno on "Precipice Drive," the quivering ecstasy of Buz Ludzha's "Basslines for Life," and Selvy's cowbell mantras on "Basics." Even Total Freedom's got little more mellow this week on the back of a typically jarring rework of Kelela's heady "Gomensai," which may be one of the most restrained, most hopeful of his brickwall-collision compositions.
