The Nextmen x Eva Lazarus: Rudegyal

While the weather might be teasing us with glimpses of the summer, there is most definitely a heatwave brewing in one corner of the country thanks to the latest from The Nextmen, as they team up with Eva Lazarus for Rudegyal. A veritable summer jam, thanks to the reggae roots that pervade the production and Eva’s trademark blend of vocal styles. You can watch the lyric video above, courtesy of Benny Aves and Max Palmer, plus there are streams available which also include the equally superb, Afterglow Dub.

Skyzoo ft. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble: Bed-Stuy is Burning

Skyzoo is preparing to release his new album and today saw the unveiling of the first single. When Mello Music first announced that the NY rapper had a new project on the way, I was particularly happy to see Hypnotic Brass Ensemble listed in the credits, and so I was even happier when they ran with their feature as the lead single. They provide their usual jazzy accompaniment on Bed-Stuy is Burning, Skyzoo’s ode to the rapidly changing Brooklyn neighbourhood. The track is produced by Rashid Hadee. The full album, All The Brilliant Things, is due for release on 11 June.

The Alchemist ft. Earl Sweatshirt & Navy Blue: Nobles

Early digital releases are available now via ALC Records.
