Foodman And KiWi Contribute To A Very Decent Christmas 5

Christmas is one of the best times of the year? Not far behind? Whatever day Mad Decent or sub-label Good Enuff put out a new Foodman track towards their listenership, who often respond with total bafflement. The two paths converge thanks to A Very Decent Christmas 5, the 2017 edition of the label’s holiday collection. Among a lot of big names — Major Lazer, LIZ, Hoodboi — sit Foodman and KiWi, offering fantastic editions to the seasonal set. Foodman’s “Island Christmas” takes on a tropical tone, and actually is among one of the more straightforward tunes he’s made (fittingly, the most divisive comment thus far goes “weird af but I fuck wit the creativity,” far nicer than the “this is music?” responses he usually gets). It’s a bouncy number, bright and frayed around the corners, but as ready to soundtrack a surfboard rental shop as Foodman probably will ever get. KiWi meanwhile bring pure energy with “What’s In The Present Box?,” a surging dance number that mutates into a riff on “Dashing Through The Snow” midway through…before veering off into another direction shortly after. Listen above.
