Desks Of The Tiny Desk Contest: New York singer Pablo Reyes builds a Latin beat from the ground up. Looping his beatboxing and a simple guitar line under his singing, he weaves a captivating musical setting. His desk, in true Tiny Desk form, is filled with small, meaningful objects. It does double duty as a pedalboard, too, with the lights from his pedals illuminating the colorful cloth beneath them.

If this crowded desk is your favorite of the Tiny Desk Contest, then head over to our weekly just-for-fun vote page by this Friday at 10 a.m. ET to cast your vote. In the meantime, we’re reviewing all the submissions to the Contest to choose our overall winner, whom we’ll announce by early March!

Pups Of The Tiny Desk Contest: And the fan favorite is … Papo the Pomeranian! Detroit’s ONEFREQ has a groovy, slow-jam R&B sound, and the band’s pup clearly loves it. Here’s what the band wrote about its dog:

“Papo the Pomeranian hasn’t always had the easy life of lounging around being serenaded by ONEFREQ. As a young pup he broke his thigh bone and developed a nearly fatal auto-immune disorder during the recovery process.

As a result of his medical issues he is now on a strict diet – however, one of the only treats he is can have is the occasional lick of an apple core. Look closely – during the filming of ONEFREQ’s Tiny Desk video, Papo was kept calm by chewing on an apple! Thankfully, now days Papo is healthy, happy and ONEFREQ’s biggest fan!”

Congratulations to Papo & ONEFREQ on this well-deserved distinction.

Pups Of The Tiny Desk Contest: Sunny, the dog DJ behind Luminosalix’s “Rise Again,” keeps a watchful eye over her owner’s beats in this EDM Tiny Desk Contest video. The Texan DJ has the classic audio-technica headphones and a good sense of rhythm. Her owner writes:

“Sunny is a 12-year-old herding work dog. Forced to move to the big city with her adopted family, she has adapted to her new life by turning to producing EDM music.

Sunny is a big fan of EDM and orchestral music. She likes to hang out under the tiny desk while the music is being composed. When interviewed regarding her newfound internet fame, she says she was just in the right place at the right time, under the tiny desk.”
