The top 10 tracks of the week

10 songs you should hear right now…

1. Todd Terje – ‘Spiral’

Norway disco don gives us another one-two slow motion punch of elongated synth-disco. It’s hard to pick a winner between the two new tracks at the moment but ‘Q’ is just shaving it by a hair.


2. Daithí – ‘Case Closed’ ft. Senita

Daithí proving he’s going to continue to impress in future with this garage house pop new single.


3. Fight Like Apes – ‘Carousel’

A lovely return to form from the Apes that bodes well for the new EP and album next year.


4. A$AP Ferg – ‘Shabba’ Remix ft. Shabba Ranks, Busta Rhymes & Migos

SHABBA SHABBA RAAAAANKS. For the hook alone, this track could feature here but stick Busta on this track (like his recent highlight guest verse on Q-Tip’s ‘Thank You’) and it’s game over. It has a serious sinister horror beat to follow up on the equally great remix of Ferg’s ‘Work’. Both remixes have slayed the originals.

A$AP Ferg - Shabba (Explicit) ft. A$AP ROCKY

5. Future Brown – ‘World’s Mine’ ft. Prince Rapid, Dirty Danger, Roachee

UK grime meets LA aquatic R&B. Fatima Al Qadiri, Nguzunguzu and J-Cush of Lit City Trax’s Future Brown project has a debut album coming next year with collabs Tink, Shawnna, 3D Na’tee, Maluca, Riko Dan, Ian Isiah and Kelela.’World’s Mine’ is the latest track from it after ‘Wanna Party’.


6. Ikonika – ‘Beach Mode’ feat. Jessy Lanza

Ikonika’s remix of Chvrches this week had me going back to her recent Aeropolis album, particularly this standout track with Jessy Lanza.


7. Friends – ‘The Way’ (Blood Orange remix)

Dev Hynes and Samantha Urbani team up for a smooth ’80s-style R&B remix. Not entirely different to the new Blood Orange album Cupid Deluxe which I’m finding hard to get into.

8. Benihana – ‘Tell You’

Slow building euphoria from the Kildare duo’s new EP.


9. Tinashe – ‘Vulnerable’ feat. Travi$ Scott

American R&B singer Tinashe has been building her rep over the last few years with underground-leaning mixtapes and collabs with Ryan Hemsworth and Jacques Greene. ‘Vulnerable’, from her new Black Water mixtape is sensual R&B pitched from a darker place.


10. Dornik – ‘Rebound’

He’s a member of Jessie Ware’s band but he’s also keeping things on the side for himself is this Dornik Leigh kid. He gave us the hazed ‘Something About You’ a few months back and ‘Rebound’ gives us a little more beat to bounce to. Out soon on PMR Records.
