As 80 degree temperatures outside give us a glimpse of Summertime Chi this week, new music tops the Vocalo morning host’s list of favorites for April. Chicago rapper Femdot returns with a hit single, and Achillez and fellow emcee Kai Akili team up for a vibrant track that makes a loud statement. Chicago South Side natives Manasseh and Jennifair each show off their smooth vocals while industry veteran musician Junius Bervine drops his latest collaboration with a local artist.

Reset sits down with Vocalo’s Bekoe to hear his top five tracks playing this month.

GUEST: Stephen Bekoe, host and producer at Vocalo
