New Albums: Little Simz, D*mp, Ab-Soul & more

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.

D*mp – dumping ground vol.1

Dublin upstart D*mp has spent the past year steadily collaborating with some of the city’s most exciting new acts. His first EP brings Ahmed, With Love., téga, Saoirse Miller and more into his orbit.

Little Simz – NO THANK YOU

If Little Simz wasn’t already one of your favourite rappers, then dropping one of the albums of the year on a random Monday in December will change that. Linking up with Inflo, NO THANK YOU is one hell of a send off to 2022.

Ab-Soul – Herbert

Herbert marks Ab-Soul’s fifth studio album and his first since 2016. There’s features from Big Sean, Russ, Joey Bada$$, Jhené Aiko, SiR, Punch, Zacari, Fre$h, Ambré, ALEMEDA and Lance Skiiiwalker. Not to mention production from DJ Premier, James Blake, Hit Boy, Boi 1da, DJ Dahi and more.
