Conducta – Time ft. JGrrey
Conducta and JGrrey team up for an irresistible slice of new school UK garage (they’re calling it “NUKG”, by the way).
Karl Benjamin – Apricot Sky
Apricot Sky is stargazing neo-soul. A confident debut single from this London newcomer.
NSG – Kate Winslet ft. Unknown T
What’s your preferred accompaniment for a warm apple crumble: cream, ice cream, or custard? ODG from NSG goes for the latter.
Miley Cyrus – Prisoner ft. Dua Lipa
Miley really isn’t messing around with the ’80s pomp for this new album.
Abra Cadabra – Show Me
From scoring a massive drill anthem with On Deck to speaking truth to power on BLM with OFB, 2020 has been a banner year for the rough-voiced rapper Abra Cadabra. Show Me is another adrenaline fuelled banger from his forthcoming debut mixtape.

Taken from her new Spanish language album Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios), Kali recruited Puerto Rican artists Jowell and Randy to assist the reggaeton bounce of te pongo mal (prendelo).
Phoebe Bridgers – Kyoto (Copycat Killer version)
You’d think this song couldn’t get any more lovely. But here we are wiping away tears to the new tender orchestral rendition.

Ty shows us more of his softer side. This one will be on newly-announced album TYRON, which is dropping February 2021.
