Heaters: EFÉ, Headie One & Erica Cody

Welcome to ‘Top 10 Tracks’, the essential weekly round-up of the best new music.

Welcome to ‘Top 10 Tracks’, the essential weekly round-up of the best new music.

There is such much new music being released at a relentless pace that it is difficult to keep up. What is even harder is cutting through the noise. That’s why we have ‘Heaters’, the bi-weekly music round-up highlighting the must listen to records from all corners of the globe.

This week we are catching up with our favourite releases in October so far. We have the debut EP from EFÉ, Danny Brown and Sophie making appearances on an eclectic two track project and our prayers for a new project from TDE have been answered.

Jimmy Edgar METAL / GET UP

Earlier this month, Jimmy Edgar returned with two boundary-pushing cuts. The first of which ‘METAL’ features production from SOPHIE and sees the pair connect on a chaotic track.

The second cut ‘GET UP’ sees Detroit’s Danny Brown provide his trademark zany bars.

Headie One EDNA

King of Drill Headie One recruited an all star line-up for ‘EDNA’.

Named after his late mother, it sees the spitter juxtapose rugged production with considered and introspective bars.

Denise Chaila GO BRAVELY

Denise Chaila delivered hope and inspiration to audiences across Ireland with her stunning performance at the National Gallery of Ireland in the midst of lockdown.

She’s continued her meteoric rise with a sharp mixtape, bubbling with personality.

 

Auxiliary Phoenix Ou Est La Piscine / Olmost

Carlow multi-instrumentalist and producer James Strain aka Auxiliary Phoenix has shared two new tracks ‘ou est la piscine’ and ‘olmost’.

Brimming with an improvisational feel it’s the first glimpse from his forthcoming debut LP ‘Petrichor’.

EFÉ What Should We Do This Summer?

EFÉ has quickly become one of the most exciting prospects in Ireland.

Following the bedroom-pop inspired ‘Table For Two’ she’s released her first body of work ‘What Should We Do This Summer?’. It sees her throw her name in the hat for ones to watch lists across the board. For fans of Clairo, April and Boy Pablo.

Westside Gunn WHO MADE THE SUNSHINE

Griselda are 2020’s most prolific hip hop crew.

‘WHO MADE THE SUNSHINE’ is Westside Gunn’s second album of the year and sees him follow the same collaborative approach seen in ‘Pray For Paris’. There’s creative features all over the record with Slick Rick and Busta Rhymes hopping on the same joint.

Jorja Smith Come Over Feat. Popcaan

The world would be slightly more bearable if there was a new Jorja Smith album in rotation.

For now, she’s shared a hip-shaking new single with Popcaan that’ll do the trick until a full project emerges.

Erica Cody Calculated Feat. Hare Squead

Dublin RnB songstress Erica Cody returned this month with an infectious new cut featuring fellow Dublin Native Lilo Blues of Hare Squead.

‘Calculated’ features production from Erica and Diffusion Lab, with Lilo chipping in with his trademark smooth bars. Her most confident release to date ‘Calculated’ is infectious, bold and another signpost in her artistic evolution.

Asha Imuno Good News

Sitting somewhere between the freewheeling raps of Aminé and the heartfelt autotuned croons of early Brockhampton, Asha Imuno is as versatile as he is believable.

Highlight of ‘Good News’ is the cut throat ‘BIG WORDS’ that features production that would sit comfortably in a Vince Staples project.

Reason New Beginnings

For whatever reason (no pun intended) TDE have been going a dry spell. Until recently that is when SZA shared a new single and one of their less familiar members Reason dropped his debut studio album ‘New Beginnings’.

It’s stacked with notable contributions including a track featuring both J.I.D and Isiah Rashad.

Dark production and crashing percussion persists throughout a convincing record.
