Peyton Don't U Wanna Fly

Peyton’s ‘Don’t U Wanna Fly’ is a gentle bit of encouragement to reach for the stars.

Landing ahead of her debut album PSA which is releasing through the legendary Stones Throw Records, the twinkling RnB record is a welcome jab of optimism.

Rejjie Snow Disco Pantz

It’s always a good day when Rejjie Snow drops. It’s not often a song sounds like its title but here we are.

‘Disco Pantz’ is a groovy number that features Tinashe and grouptherapy and lands with his new album in the crosshairs.

Isaiah Rashad Headshots (4r Da Locals)

Hitting that sweet spot between laid back rap and smokey RnB, Isaiah Rashad’s ‘Headshots (4r Da Locals)’ is a return to the TDE rapper’s trademark sound and we’re here for it.

7

Kojaque Casio Feat. Maverick Sabre

Dublin’s Kojaque laid the blueprint for a lot of independent rap upstarts in Ireland. However, it hasn’t always been easy for the Soft Boy Records co-founder.

On ’Casio’ he shares the stage with fellow Irish man Maverick Sabre and retrospectively explores the insecurities he had to overcome as a fella wanting to make hip hop in Ireland.

Joy Crookes Feet Don't Fail Me Now

Though breezy on the surface, Joy Crookes honey-glazed vocals on ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’ capture the pitfalls of online activism expertly. 

“I’ve been posing with red skies, retweeting picket signs, put my name on petitions but I won’t change my mind. I’m keeping up appearances, the dark side of my privilege”.

5

Denise Chaila

We’ve had to wait a minute for Denise Chaila, but it’s been worth it.

Celebrating the south west, she’s returned with a new video indebted to the sword fighting of middle earth and ethereal sounds of Irish folklore in ‘061′

4

SELLO As Gaeilge

Though he only has two songs under his belt, the pioneer of ‘Gaelic Drill’ is living up to the hype. ‘As Gaeilge’ is SELLO doubling down on his ambition to push drill music into unchartered waters.

3

Wesley Joseph Patience Feat Jorja Smith

Wesley Joseph doesn’t do half measures. The multi-hypenate teamed up with Jorja Smith ahead of the release of his debut EP ULTRAMARINE this week and maintained his record of creating cinematic singles that stretch beyond the confines of streaming services.

2

Tyler, The Creator LUMBERJACK

In the clusterfuck of adjectives about Tyler, The Creator thrown around the internet ‘consistent’ is up there with the most undeniable.

Keeping up his record of dropping LPs nearly exactly two years apart, ‘LUMBERJACK’ comes ahead of CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST next week and reimagines T’s early thrashing style.

Vince Staples LAW OF AVERAGES

We’ve had to wait two years for a fresh solo offering of Vince Staples’ unmistakable drawl, but it’s been worth it.

LAW OF AVERAGES’ swaps the Ramona Park MC’s sharp-tongued humour for an honest track that features production from Kenny Beats. It comes ahead of his forthcoming self-titled album.
