THE INTERNET – GIRL [PROD. KAYTRANADA]

Back in January, Kaytranada was absolutely nailing it with his residency on BBC Radio 1, during which time he premiered a track he produced for Odd Future affiliates The Internet.  Five months later, the track has been released on SoundCloud and we can all stop listening to the radio rip!  As Kaytra previously mentioned, the track was…

HUNTAR – LOVE I KNOW EP

Featuring previously released tracks ‘The Woods‘ and ‘Love I Know‘, Huntar releases his ‘Love I Know’ EP in full.  The short follow-up to ‘Bittar Mixtape‘ is a gloriously lush collection of delicately produced love songs that appear to convey the UK vocalist/producer’s desire to reconcile with a lover.  Branded as ‘twisted Pop’ or ‘Futurist R&B’, we don’t know…

J WARNER – EST. 1990

Disturbing London’s J Warner releases his debut EP ‘Est. 1990’.  We had to let this one marinate for a minute, it’s a densely complex collection; which treads a challenging line between R&B and Pop, which also incorporates a big influence from UK Hip Hop & Grime.  It’s best though, not to even try and put…

ISAAC DANQUAH – BALANCE

With his upcoming project slated for a June/July release, London’s Isaac Danquah releases ‘Balance’.  The Lupus Cain – produced track is described as “a soul-infused trap ballad”, which pretty much sums it up perfectly.  Whether rapping or singing, Danquah conveys an urgency with his voice, not since the likes of Skinner of Ghostpoet have we heard such…

SZA – BABYLON [FT. KENDRICK LAMAR]

SZA is an extremely talented artist in her own right, but you can’t help the feeling that she owes the majority of her exposure on Hip Hop blogs to her affiliation with Top Dawg Ent.  Regardless of where her notoriety comes from, this is a cool track with a typically excellent feature courtesy of Kendrick Lamar,…
