For smoked-out house music, the tunes wafting from the Mood Hut in Vancouver are some of the dankest right now. Jack J's "Something (On My Mind)" coasts on the back of a warbling, four bar chord progression. But throughout the ten minute track, sax samples and guitar plucks dress this riff in surprises, with crispy hats that keep it all upbeat. Smooth stuff that's fit to loosen any vibe.
