Kali Uchis – All Or Nothing.

Kali Uchis has been teasing Por Vida for most of 2014, but it’s on the horizon. She thanks fans for their patience with this loose cut titled, All Or Nothing. The self-looped instrumental is a good demonstration of what can be expected from Por Vida as Kali displays a more mellow side while displaying her impressive vocal range.

Chance The Rapper, Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment – Sunday Candy.

With The Social Experiment‘s project Surf due very soon, the Chicago collective decided to liberate this feel-good song, Sunday Candy.

In Donnie‘s own words:

This song specifically is a great representation of [The Social Experiment’s] collaborative efforts,” Segal explained. “It’s my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas.”
