Heaters: Paris Texas, Vegyn & ENNY

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.

At the end of each week, we curate a collection of must listens to keep you in the loop. Ranging from rappers in the Emerald Isle to boundary-pushing, experimental producers and everything in between, we’ve got you sorted.

This week, Vegyn drops his post-club EP, the UK’s most uncompromising MC came through with a powerful anti-gentrification message and Ireland’s answer to JT and Timberland served a hit.

ENNY Same Old enny

“Fuck you and your gentrification”.

The message is loud and clear from ENNY on ‘Same Old’. Ahead of her debut EP and coming off the back of the success of ‘Peng Black Girls’, which subsequently saw Jorja Smith hop on the remix, ENNY is proving to be the UK’s most uncompromising MC.

Vegyn So Much Time - So Little Time

Dropping through his own PLZ Make It Ruins label, Vegyn’s Like A Good Old Friend EP is a forward-facing body of work that twists and manipulates the idea of club music in his own unique image.

Stand out tracks include lead single ‘I See You Sometimes‘ featuring Jeshi and ‘So Much Time – So Little Time’ featuring enigmatic London rapper John Glacier.

Paris Texas SITUATIONS

South Central duo Paris Texas have followed up their storming debut ‘HEAVY METAL’ with a nostalgia-tinged cut ‘SITUATIONS’.

Swapping thrashing guitars for head-nodding melodies and Cudi-esque hums the pair are quickly proving their versatility.

George Riley cleanse me

In the face of consistent commodification of the fight against climate change George Riley is reclaiming the history neoliberalism threatens to erase.

Carefully weaving her words over shadowy percussion and delicately stitched textures, ‘cleanse me’ landed a day before Greta Thunberg’s Global Climate Strike. A beautiful slice of thought-provoking RnB.

Bricknasty & KhakiKid Breakfast on Pluto

One of our picks for the Future of Irish Music 2021 feature Bricknasty have linked up with Good Buzz’s resident rager KhakiKid for a smooth new cut.

Breakfast On Pluto’ pays homage to the late MF DOOM with some clever wordplay, whilst the instrumentation and hook feels reminiscent of peak production from The Neptunes. Everything about this is just *chef’s kiss*.

 

Nonzus Magnus Smile

The evolution of Nonzus Magnus is something to behold.

His experimental, noise-laden hip hop struck a chord on its release, but has since given way to a more accessible indie-tinged sound that he hinted at on 2019’s ‘Cooler Than You Think’.

Now, he’s doubled down on that approach and subsequently mastered it on his latest release ‘Smile’ –  without compromising his DIY aesthetic.

Pink Siifu, Fly Anakin FlySiifu's

There’s a special kind of chemistry between Pink Siifu and Fly Anakin.

Following the success of FlySiifu’s they’ve dropped another EP $mokebreak that’s strapped onto the deluxe edition of their previous release.

Additionally, it has some heavy-hitting feature from Bruiser Brigade’s ZelooperZ, Chuck Strangers, and Black Noi$e.

Evan Miles If This Is It

Anomaly’s Evan Miles is back with a pulsing new escapist anthem. ‘If This Is It’ sees the producer embrace darker undertones as he explores uncharted territory.

Speaking on the release he said:

“I’ve been listening to a lot of older stuff, stuff from &ME, David August and Rampa. I was home in Waterford for a good while over Christmas and it kinda made me think about the stuff I listened to in my teens and how I could incorporate it into the stuff I’m making now”.

BINA Mercedes to Hades

BINA’s sophisticated songwriting and nods to mythological creatures on ‘Mercedes to Hades‘ strikes the perfect balance.

A certified summer glow-up anthem with an additional je ne c’est quoi, it’s a welcome introduction to her forthcoming EP This Is Not A Film.

Monte Booker Ain't Gon Stop Feat. Kenny Beats & reggie

It’s been a great week for producers who cut their teeth during the Soundcloud era. Following Kaytranada’s double GRAMMY win, Monte Booker has come through with a short and sweet self-love anthem.
