SOUNDS: On today's playlist

"Stay With Me," by Platinum Pied Pipers (click song title to listen)

"50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," by Platinum Pied Pipers

"Hip Know Cypher," by Visioneers

We've heard the first song in a lot of our favorite DJs' set lists but didn't realize Platinum Pied Pipers were behind it. Neither of the above PPP tracks necessarily scream Detroit at us the way some of their other work does (think Dwele and Slum Village). 4Hero's Marc Mac does a lovely remix of "Stay With Me." And speaking of, we're loving his side project, "Visioneers," an album he describes as "dirty old hip hop" but actually is more what we would call "jazzy hop." It sounds like the grandchild of The Pharcyde's Bizarre Ride.
