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, Local Boy is feeling optimistic, Minneapolis’ Miloe announces his new EP with a tender single and Meechy Darko shares another new cut.
Flo Milli announces her debut album with a hypnotic reminder that’s she’s next up.
Biig Piig continues her pop evolution with a feature on the infectious new Blu DeTiger single ‘Crash Course’.
Ugolino are making a blend of jazz and spoken word with a heavy emphasis on the jazz. Horns and keys accentuate every syllable on the tender ‘Searching‘.
Landing as part of his debut album, Morgan Hislop’s ‘Anytime You Want It’ is a transient journey to the clouds that sees Dublin artist Wastefellow provide his trademark vocals.
Rapping over a beat that sounds like a magic 8 ball meets a top 100 producer, Omeretta the Great is conjuring up a spell in ‘BABA’.
On his highly collaborative debut album, Lil Silva joins forces with Canadian outfit BADBADNOTGOOD on the swelling ‘To The Floor’.
Landing ahead of the release of Gemini’s Rights, ‘Sunshine‘ is a shot of sunshine to the arm.
Burner Records’ Local Boy is shaking off the cynicism of previous releases with the optimistic ‘Milkshake Pilltaste‘. He says, “The themes get heavier on a lot of my new music so I wanted to remind myself that sometimes getting out in the sun and breathing fresh air can be so important for giving us a fresh perspective when times are hard.”
Minneapolis singer Miloe distills love, coming-of-age and friendship into the tender ‘make ur way’. One to watch, with Gaps EP out September 16.
It’s solo album season for Flatbush Zombies’ Meechy Darko, who shared the second single from the forthcoming Gothic Luxury this week. ‘Get Lit Or Die Tryin’ marries his signature growl with a dark funk courtesy of Dot Da Genius.
