Danny G & the Major 7ths Make Me Feel (Believing) Feat. 0phelia, Breezy Ideygoke & King Koko

Featuring a lineup of heavy hitters, Danny G & The Major 7th’s track quickly evolved from a ‘JusMe’  reworking into a head-nodding cross country crew cut.

Make Me Feel (Believing)’ features verses from 0phelia, Breezy Ideygoke & King Koko

Otis Wongsam Genjutsu

Originally bursting onto the scene as one part of the trailblazing collective OG Horse which featured Wesley Joseph and Jorja Smith,Otis Wongsam has returned with a genre-agnostic banger.

Landing via Bone Soda, Genjutsu sees the midlands rapper carve his own lane through spacey production.

Ra Gerra Indecisive

Kobina and MuRli’s collaborative project is a match made in heaven.

Indecisive’ is the third single from their forthcoming project and with each single being different from the last, their sound is proving impossible to pigeon-hole.

CMAT 2 Wrecked 2 Care

We’ve all been there. Catching a glimpse of the time on the corner of your phone screen as your mind plays every trick possible to make you believe that you’ll be grand after three hours sleep and a double shot espresso. Plot twist: You won’t.

Wrestling with a lack of sleep and losing the will to care on ‘2 Wrecked 2 Care’, CMAT touches on modern stressors that impact our nocturnal hygiene such as low job security while lamenting the resulting brain fog.

The Dublin singer’s latest single comes after the release of her Diet Baby EP and continues the rich vein of form that has seen CMAT write some of the sharpest lyrics to come out of Ireland in the past year.

Bricknasty who asked fatboy Feat. F3miii & Tebi Rex

There’s not anyone making music quite like Bricknasty. Hailing from Ballymun, their thick Dublin drawl dances infectiously through RnB, neo-soul and indie without compromising their endearing DIY approach.

‘who asked fatboy’ sees them link up with Tebi Rex’s Max Zanga and F3miii. The accompanying melodies share DNA with stateside crooner Brent Faiyaz whereas Zanga’s bars stay true to his impish style.

John Glacier If Anything

In the social media era, it’s rare to have acts that stray from the limelight, but Hackney-based rapper John Glacier has garnered unrivalled status as one of the capital’s most exciting and enigmatic artists.

This week, she shared ‘If Anything’ the first single from her forthcoming debut project SHILOH: Lost For Words. Featuring executive production from PLZ Make It Ruins head honcho Vegyn.

It sees John Glacier’s unique vocal offering meander through nocturnal and lo-fi production as she marries the distorted elements of the UK club scene with her own experimental rap tinge.

Rushes Funds

Rushes was born to write sun-kissed, top down summer anthems.

Funds’ is the Skibbereen singer in his element and the grind has never sounded so sweet.

Tyler, The Creator JUGGERNAUT

Star-studded collaboration from T’s CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.

A wrecking ball of a track that lives up to its name.
