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

At the end of each week, we count down the ten essential new tracks you need in your rotation. Ranging from rappers in the Emerald Isle to boundary-pushing, experimental producers and everything in between, it’s all hits, no filler.

This week, Kasien looks inward and showcases his versatility, Monjola returns and Berwyn and Ibeyi team up.


IDK Dog Food Feat. Denzel Curry

The second single from IDK’s KAYTRANADA-produced album Simple featuring Denzel Curry.


Sampa The Great Lane Feat. Denzel Curry & Powers Pleasant

After a performance at Coachella, Zambian-born Botswana-raised poet and rapper, Sampa The Great opens a new chapter with Denzel Curry, who appears to have the busiest pen in the game right now. 


Quelle Chris The Sky is Blue because the Sunset is Red Feat. MoRuf & Pink Siifu

Ahead of DEATHFAME which drops on May 13, Quelle Chris teams up with MoRuf and Pink Siifu on a considered new single.



LSDXOXO shares a frenetic, emo-tinged farewell letter to an absent friend.


Saint Jude, Fredwave Garden

South London’s Saint Jude teams up with Fredwave for a expansive new track that sees breaks, industrial sounds and distorted melodies collide in a way that’s just the right amount of messy.

The single also lands alongside an AI-generated video.


Monjola Extrovert

You ever been in a room full of friends and felt alone? Chamomile Records’ Monjola distills this outer body experience into three minutes of his trademark jazz rap and melodies on ‘Extrovert’.


Chanel Loren Disappear

Sometimes closure isn’t an option and on ‘Disappear’, South-East London’s Chanel Loren is accepting things as they are. Peep those guitar licks as well – it’s giving Mike Dean.


Kasien Grass Grows Greener

Kasien’s ‘Grass Grows Greener‘ is a softly spoken ode to how he went super saiyan in the face of life’s tribulations.


Ibeyi Rise Above Feat. BERWYN

Having already collaborated with Pa Salieu and Jorja Smith, twins Ibeyi team up with BERWYN for the transcendent ‘Rise Above’ ahead of their album Spell 31 which lands May 6.


Tanna Leone Death n' Taxes

Landing on Tanna Leone’s Sleepy Soldier, (the second record released on Kendrick Lamar’s pgLang) ‘Death n’ Taxes’ is a nihilistic and emotional cut that muses the inevitability of pain.
