Words: Dylan Murphy

With the endless onslaught of new music every Friday it’s hard to keep up with all the new releases. We’ve curated the essential new albums and projects out today for you to check out.

Ari Lennox – Away Message

Dreamville’s RnB staple has shared a five track EP featuring Summer Walker the week before her next album. Talk about spoiling us.

At just 22, ayrtn is proving to be the UK rap scene’s new self-sufficient hopeful. His latest EP TOO AWESOME is made up of six tracks completely written produced and arranged by the young rapper.

Willhouse – Tribute To: Volume 1

Poxy Records co-founder Willhouse shares a 17 track tape of instrumentals inspired by Gang Starr.

Kenny Beats – LOUIE

Kenny Beats has built a reputation as one of music’s most in demand collaborators. He’s produced entire records for Rico Nasty and Idles and has showcased his versatility producing for acts ranging from Mac De Marco to SZA. However, this week he flipped the script and brought a host of artists into his orbit for his debut album LOUIE.

Khakikid – Elevator Music

Coming off the back of a rich vein of form, Khakikid has shared his debut EP Elevator Music. The six track EP has been slowly cooking over the last 12 months, with each subsequent single and video providing a clearer picture of his increasingly surreal world. Yesterday, he completed the rollout with a video for ‘Babybrown’ which sees Abdu aka Khaki enlist Wes-Anderson style visuals for an equally absurd outing.
