Staying in Manchester for a second, as we check out the latest video from Children of Zeus. Hard Work is one of many highlights from their debut LP, Travel Light, which is out now on First Word Records.

Refreshing track from the burgeoning Bristol scene, as Keeda releases her debut single. For Deeper, the vocalist has teamed up with the ever-prolific, Wish Master, and Drog Beats, who handles the production. The video was made by Sektion Red.

Another stellar video from Flying Lotus as he continues to build the hype for his forthcoming album. More sees him teaming up with genre spanning vocalist, Anderson Paak, accompanied by a visually stunning video from Shinichiro Watanabe, who enlists the help of some of Japan’s finest animé artists. Flamagra is due for release on 24 May on Warp.

Harleighblu is a singer from Nottingham, whose work draws on influences from hip hop, soul, electronica and beyond. Thanks to a string of superb releases, including her Futurespective series, she is already forging her own path in an increasingly saturated scene. I caught up with her recently to discuss a number of things including her new project with Bluestaeb, her musical roots and surviving the industry as a female artist. Read the rest of this entry »

Beautiful throwback soul vibes in the latest video from Anderson Paak, as he readies us for his new album. Make It Better also features legendary vocalist, Smokey Robinson, with production from Alchemist, Paak and Fred Wreck. The track is taken from the imminent new album, Ventura, which is out on 12 April.

Anna Lisa is a vocalist from Bristol who brings haunting melodies to trap heavy beats. She’s still in the infancy of her career, but she definitely possesses the necessary skills to make a name for herself in the UK and beyond. Courage is her most recent single and serves as a fine introduction to her approach to music. The track is produced by regular collaborator, MUSSI and the video was made by Cineview Productions.

Great compilation from genre defying London outfit, Button Eyes, as we finally get all their beautiful songs in one place. Button Eyes first came to my attention with the release of Simple Days and A Fever, back in 2013, which featured vocalists Gemma Williams and Rag’N’Bone Man – still some of my favourite work of his to date – as well Please Don’t Take My Blues, featuring contemporary blues man, CW Jones. Now thanks to Lewis Lindgren (184, Taunton Manor etc.), the man behind the music, we have those tracks alongside later releases like Chemicals and Erase Me. Nobody’s Baby is available to stream below and downloads are available via Western Decadence. Read the rest of this entry »

Anderson Paak brings the summer vibes back on the lead single from his new album. We know he’s been in the lab with some legends recently and for further proof we need look no further than on Tints, where he is joined by Kendrick Lamar. Oxnard is due for release later this year.

Honoured to be able to bring you the world premiere of the latest video from Children of Zeus. Still riding high on the wave of the release of their triumphant debut album, Travel Light, the Manchester duo now return with some new visuals for one of the album’s many high points, Fear of a Flat Planet. The track also features the distinctive talent of fellow Manny family member, LayFullStop, along with another striking video from Tarnish Vision. Travel Light is out now on First Word Records.

Fantastic new single from DJ Yoda as he enlists the ample talents of Joel Culpepper on London Fields. It’s a definite change in direction for the DJ and producer, but it’s a change that works extremely well and I’m hoping we get to hear more material in the same vein in the future. You can stream London Fields below. Read the rest of this entry »
