ericdoa & glaive – fuck this town

For the most part, hyperpop is an extremely online, post-geographical music scene. fuck this town is the result of two of its breakout stars taking a trip out of their small cities to hang out IRL in LA.

Billie Eilish – NDA

Eilish whispers about the perils of fame on this prowling, nocturnal tune.

Dave – Clash ft. Stormzy

Dave’s about to follow up Psychodrama – which everyone knows is a UK rap classic – with his second album We’re All Alone in This Together. Stormzy steps in to assist him on this understated lead track.

Little Simz – I Love You, I Hate You

Deep and dextrous lyricism from one of London’s finest.

IDK – Red ft. Westside Gunn, Jay Electronica & MF Doom

IDK sustains high energy levels throughout his new album USEE4YOURSELF. Here he takes a moment to air out some cynicism with a group of authoritative elder emcees, including the late masked enigma DOOM, who makes a swift posthumous appearance on the bridge.
