Dua Saleh – signs

The Minnesota artist and activist (and future Sex Education star) shares a club-friendly rap banger.

Smerz – Remember

Remember was tucked away as the hidden track on the vinyl edition of Smerz’ album Believer. It’s a stunning song about post-breakup heartache and desire, and it deserves all the extra attention it gets via its digital release.

Deb Never – Sorry

The LA-via-Washington songwriter is over someone’s messy behaviour. Big shit rockstar, but I think you’re boring,” she sings in the chorus.

The Alchemist – Nobles ft. Earl Sweatshirt & Navy Blue

Earl and Navy Blue (who’s also known in the skateboarding and fashion worlds as Sage Elsesser) sound truly in their element by trading poetic bars over a soulful, luxurious-sounding loop provided by their friend The Alchemist.

Lil Yachty – Stunt Double ft. Rio da Young OG

Having spent a considerable amount of his time building connections with Detroit and Flint’s rap scenes over the last few years, Lil Yachty’s just dropped the long-anticipated album Michigan Boy Boat, which includes this swift collab with the recently incarcerated Flint figurehead Rio da Young OG.

American Dance Ghosts – Untitled 05

American Dance Ghosts is the new project from the LA-based duo Hank Korsan and Hayes Bradley. Taken from their self-titled debut EP, Untitled 05 is a glistening slice of soul-soothing house music.
