Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment – Tap Dance
The underrated duo, made up of rapper Killer Mike and rapper/producer El-P, has returned, releasing a single to their upcoming new mixtape Run the Jewels 2. The beat is everything one has come to expect from an El-P beat: busy industrial samples, and a rapid pace. Like many other hip hop songs, the rapper’s style is mirrored through the beat, as both rappers approach the track as “in-your-face” as possible. Run the Jewels 2 is being released Oct. 27, and it’s shaping up to be a solid album.

On “My Type,” the indie band Saint Motel, recognizes the power of a danceable upbeat jazz clip.
