In his first new single since ‘Baby Crumbs’, F3miii recruits fellow Dublin resident Khakikid on ‘In My Head’.

Sputnik One, EMBY Supa Natural

Having debuted the track in HÖR’s bathroom, our favourite new cross border collaborators have finally shared their long awaited collaboration ’Supa Natural’. It’s Side A of a 2 tracker that christens Sputnik’s new label – N-Face. The full release Supa Natural/Grafters drops October 18.


Loshh k

Ahead of his akọle EP which drops October 21, Loshh has teamed up with fellow trailblazer Obongjayar a progress check on ‘k’. Speaking on the track he says, “Blocking the noise of the world, of society, almost like another way of being tunnel vision towards your dreams, goals and aspirations, knowing that where you’re headed is better than where you once was before.”


Bricknasty Ina Crueler

Ballymun’s  Bricknasty are the kind of act that love subverting expectations at every opportunity and their latest single is no different. ‘Ina Crueler’ lies somewhere between the brainfog of a King Krule record and sad soul music that pushes you to stay in bed all day. One for the rainy days.
