Poppy Ajudha NO!

co-written and co-produced with Jungle, there was little chance of Poppy Ajudha’s ‘NO!’ not hitting.

9.

Ward Meet Your Maker

There’s some serious bounce on Ward’s ‘Meet Your Maker’. It’s the kind of indie cut that could soundtrack a summer shubz as easily as it could enter the charts.

8.

Sainte Arrogant

He might slalom between different styles as he cements his sound, but there’s always an unshakeable confidence in everything Sainte does. The Leicester rapper is moving at his own pace on ‘Arrogant’.

7.

Danger Mouse Strangers Feat. A$AP Rocky & Run The Jewels

What a line up. With the full collaborative album from Danger Mouse and Black Thought landing today, ‘Strangers’ is an immediate standout from the record.

6.

Tomike Aren't Up For Debate

Tomike doesn’t miss. Her latest effort comes off the back of a performance at Primavera in Spain and has her leaving on her own terms.

5.

EDEN Sci-fi

Dublin’s EDEN announced his forthcoming album ICYMI with the infectious ‘Sci-Fi’.

4.

JID Dance Now Feat. Kenny Mason

When JID says “look” and hits that bouncy flow you know it’s about to be lit. ‘Dance’ lands after years of “Where’s the album?” tweets and was worth the wait.

3.

dexter Something Real

In the last year, dexter has supported Denzel Curry and Fred Again.. and shared one of our favourite EPs. Now, she’s returning with ‘Something Real’, showcasing her ability to write intentional cuts without compromising on sound selection.

2.

PinkPantheress Picture in my mind Feat. Sam Gellaitry

When an artist blows up so quickly there’s a tendency for the internet to look for any reason to complain about said act. “Industry plant”, “Just does the same thing”, you get the jist. However, it’s hard to not love everything PinkPantheress has done so far and dancing feels like an involuntary decision when hearing her latest cut with Sam Gellaitry.

1.

Loyle Carner Georgetown

Loyle Carner season is in full flow. The rapper returned in July with ‘Hate’, his first solo single since 2020’s ‘Yesterday‘ and today he’s shared his second song in as many months titled ‘Georgetown’. Like ‘Yesterday’ it features production from none other than the legendary Madlib and maintains the same uncompromising lyricism showcased on ‘Hate’.
