Friday is release day and here’s the first things that caught my ear while listening to new songs out.

SG Lewis feat. Robyn & Channel Tres – Impact

Big euphoric vibes from a trio of collaborators. I can almost smell the late night outdoor festival off this. A late late entrant to song of the summer.


El Michels Affair & Piya Malik – ‘Dhuaan’


A Bollywood psychedelic jam from El Michels Affair released as a 45 record.

Kean Kavanagh – Roll Over

The Soft Boy is back and looking to bum a smoke.


Pen Pals – Dynasty

From the Paul Institute’s new Summer EP that also features AK Paul, Reinen, Hira, Ruthven and Fabiana Palladino. ‘Dynasty’ is my standout of the six.


Keedron Bryant – ‘I Just Wanna Live’ (feat. Andra Day, Lucky Daye)

Keedron Bryant is a 12-year-old, who posted a video of him singing a song written by his mother, on Instagram the day after the killing of George Floyd. The song has now been re-recorded with a full studio version produced by Dem Jointz and it’s a beautiful cathartic song for the Black Lives Matter movement.


Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion – ‘WAP’

Durrty bop. A song for ridin’.

Malaki & Nealo – ‘Glory Daze’

The last track from Malaki’s Cocoon series is his best yet, centered nights out to escape the underlying angst you feel inside.


Machinedrum – Kane Train (Feat. Freddie Gibbs)

Is there any beat that Freddie Gibbs can’t rap over?


Pagan – Never Known

Big drums and synths courtesy of Irish artist Pagan on a song released last Friday by  Lobster Theremin as part of their charity Bandcamp day compilation, to raise funds for Sistah Space in Hackney.


A Certain Ratio – Yo Yo Gi

A Certain Ratio are due to release their first album in 12 years on September 25th entitled ACR Loco, and the tight punk-funk of ‘Yo Go Gi’ is a reason to mark your calendars for that date.


Flatbush ZOMBiES – Afterlife (Produced by James Blake)

Off-kilter track and video produced by James Blake.
