Given the strange circumstances of the past year, sometimes it can feel like we’re running endlessly on a work-at-home hamster wheel. GRAMMY nominated singer Nao is taking time to slow down on the aptly named ‘Burn Out’.

thomTide mySakura

San Diego based creative thomTide took on the ambitious task of releasing a track every two weeks for 12 months. After what must feel like carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders the final track ‘mySakura’ lands like a gentle massage to gentle shoulders. It sees out an impressive run from the rising singer.

Maverick Sabre Not Easy Love Feat. Demae

Maverick Sabre has blessed us with the first track from his forthcoming album.

Not Easy Love’ is confessional, head-nodding and its strings point to the fragility of romance.

Miso Extra 1013

Despite only having two releases under her belt, Miso Extra is making a splash with her original and multilingual take on rap. Having released the bubbling ‘Adventures of Tricky N Duke’ earlier this year, the rising upstart has come through with ‘1013′, a winding track that’s accordion sounds shares creative DNA with the late MF DOOM’s eponymous track.

Slaloming between both Japanese and English, her second release has an increased dose of mysticism and showcases the versatility of an artist that’s just getting started.

Rhoshi WASTED feat. SARA

Dublin producer Rhoshi rarely disappoints. He’s returned with the mechanical ‘WASTED’ that features transcendent vocals from SARA.

BAD WITH PHONES Refrigerator Feat. KIM BLUE

Slowly unfurling like dry ice over a cloaked stage, ‘Refrigerator‘ maintains the distinct air of mysticism around London based artist BAD WITH PHONES.

Another in a slew of impressive and original releases, it tees up the artist to take over in 2022.

Speaking on the track he says, “I heard the beat and it sounded like an anthem and made me feel like a cold motherfucker hence the title… I also recorded it with the mic in my Refrigerator”.

Boys Noize Affection Feat. ABRA

Atlanta underground R&B crooner ABRA teams up with German producers Boys Noize for an exercise in industrial lust.

2

reggie Avalanche Feat. Smino

reggie’s Color show on Youtube blew us away this year and his five supporting singles have been equally impressive. The latest of the bunch sees the west-coast based rapper trade verses with Smino in a bouncy single that speaks to the soul.

Monjola Pain Don't Die
