KEHLANI – THE WAY [FT. CHANCE, THE RAPPER]

Oakland songstress Kehlani dropped her new album, ‘You Should Be Here’, last night.  In a fairly transparent bid to open the collection up to a slightly different audience, track number six has a feature from none other than Chance, The Rapper.  If that sentence sounded pejorative, you only need to take a listen to the tape [which…

HUNTAR – LOVE I KNOW

Premiered on Annie Mac’s new show on BBC Radio 1, ‘Love I Know’ is the title track from Huntar’s upcoming EP.  The twenty one year old vocalist/producer blew us away recently with the bold, futuristic ‘Bittar Mixtape‘, and it looks as though he’s only just getting started.  The track begins with a mournful vocal performance backed by touches…

P. MORRIS – BELOVED EP

After releasing single ‘Before You Disappear‘, P. Morris shares his latest EP  in full.  In ‘Beloved’, the LA producer successfully creates an immersive world of moody instrumentals for the listener to get absolutely lost in.  His debut EP [aptly titled ‘Debut‘] was to be listened to alongside a series of interactive environments via his website.…

THE WEEKND – OFTEN

Seemingly out of nowhere comes a new one from The Weeknd, ‘Often’.  True to his style, the track occupies Tesfaye’s moody Future R & B space and makes unambiguous reference to sexual desire.

DISTINCTION – RVST

‘RVST’ is the debut mixtape that Distinction fans have been waiting for ever since remix of Frank Ocean’s ‘Swim Good’ back in 2012.  The mixtape features Distinction’s take on tracks from the likes of JMSN, Drake, Aaliyah, Usher, the aforementioned, and more.  Our favourite though, is his epic beefing up of Jessie Ware’s ‘Devotion’.  Where the…

MZWETWO – GALLANTINO EP

The things we know about Mzwetwo: 1. He is from New Zealand 2. He is nineteen years old 3. He has recently released his debut EP, ‘Gallantino’. Admittedly, this isn’t much at all, but it’s enough to fall head over heels in love with his unique sound.  The three track EP is heavily lo-fi, brooding…

THE WEEKND – KISS LAND

To be released fully September 10, the latest offering from The Weeknd began streaming online yesterday.  ’Kiss Land’ is a production masterclass: layers upon layers of dreamy synths, wailing guitars and brooding basslines create Tesfaye’s most ambitious and melodramatic soundscape yet.  Stream ‘Kiss Land’ below, and indeed the rest of the album on The Weeknd’s…
