DISCLOSURE – LATCH [SCHOOLBOY Q REMIX]

Disclosure’s ‘Latch’ has been the subject of many a remix treatment, including that by Lido and DJ Premier.  Now, in the small hours of this Thursday morning, comes a version complete with bars from TDE’s own Schoolboy Q.  It’s unclear whether the remix came from Puffy’s camp or the UK dance duo themselves, but it’s…

BONFIRES – DEMONS [FT. LUUI]

UK producer Bonfires has been dropping tracks that add a touch of House to proceedings as of late. This time around however, he recruit’s Luui on the mic for the slow, brooding ‘Demons’. Layers of Synth are tied together by the most basic of drum beats; perfect for Luui’s densely complex flows. Stream below via…

ASANTE HUNTER – LIFELESS

After the outstanding ‘Show Me The War‘, Asante Hunter releases the second single from his upcoming ‘Finding Found’ EP, ‘Lifeless’.  The track sees Hunter sharing a conversation with a close friend about an addiction, the chorus has his friend struggling to respond with their feeling of lifelessness.  Hunter manages to convey emotion so comprehensively through some clever production: “The…

SBTRKT – HIGHER [FT. RAURY]

SBTRKT will release the follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut on September 29 on Young Turks.  In preparation, we’re graced with new track ‘Higher’, which features Atlanta up-and-comer Raury.  New album ‘Wonder Where We Land’ is said to be far more Hip Hop-leaning than ‘SBTRKT’, and judging by ‘Higher’, they’re doing it right: this is every…

LOYLE CARNER – A LITTLE LATE EP

Initially scheduled to drop in March, Loyle Carner’s ‘A Little Late’ EP is indeed a little late.  Nevertheless, it is undoubtedly one of our favourites this summer.  Carner’s individual, raw style makes the six-track EP (which includes singles ‘Cantona’ and ‘Sea Shells’).  Carner’s King Krule-esque style is earning him plenty of attention at the minute, and we can’t wait to…

RKZ – SCIENCE X SOUL

RKZ’s long-awaited new mixtape is finally upon us after ‘Still Oceans‘ renewed our excitement last month.  Titled ‘Science X Soul’, the tape certainly brings plenty of both: RKZ’s thoughtful rhymes delivered with delicate British soul.  As the man himself says, “‘Science X Soul’ brings together both sides of the coin. We usually make life decisions with our heads OR…

JUNA COSMOS – MINDLESS EP

‘Mindless’ is a real showcase of what Juna Cosmos has to offer – the self-produced EP allows us to see so many different sides of his new wave, alternative Rap sound.  The London rapper/producer’s formal debut is designed to inspire individuality, creativity and originality for a society that exists in a “state of mindless living”.  Stream below via…

PROBLEM CHILD – CONFESSIONS OF A NORMAL HUMAN BEING

UK Hip Hop supergroup consisting of illaman, Dabbla, Dubbledge and Sumgii release their hotly anticipated debut, ‘Confessions of a Normal Human Being.  Last month they whet appetites with ‘Energy‘, and the full collection more than lives up to expectations.  Released on Potent Funk Records, COANHB is UK Hip Hop at its very finest; a deft combination of…

IMPERIAL X K.I.N.E.T.I.K. – JUST ANOTHER DAY

Producer Imperial and MC K.I.N.E.T.I.K. release ‘Just Another Day’, a single taken from their ‘Pencils Not Pistols EP‘.  All organs and percussion, the beat screams Summer, which pairs brilliantly with K.I.N.E.T.I.K.’s light-hearted subject matter.  The duo have a relationship built on their shared appreciation of grammar, Parma ham and pavlova – a far more British…
