Yuné Pinku – Fai Fighter
Since emerging last year, Yuné Pinku has been on a hot streak, consistently dropping sugary “funky, sad girl garage” bangers that make sense for both club and bedroom listening. The 19-year-old singer/producer switches it up for Fai Fighter, which is powered by euphoric synths that bring to mind Nathan Micay’s decadent Industry soundtrack. DR
Kam-Bu – Eton Mess
Following his darkly psychedelic single Pickney in October, Kam-Bu is already back with Eton Mess. Over a growling bassline, the London-via-Nottingham vents the frustrations of life in the depths of the UK’s never-ending Tory winter. DR
Lolahol – Cuntradiction
Lourdes Leon (aka Madonna’s daughter) recently launched her music career as Lolahol with the excellent track Lock&Key, for which she glided over a gentle drum’n’bass beat. For Cuntradiction, the second single from the debut Lolahol EP Go, she slips into slinky trip-hop territory. “I want a version of you, not the whole thing,” she purrs over a moody, nocturnal beat. DR
Wizkid – Wow ft. Skepta & Naira Marley
Wiz’s fans went wild when they saw this linkup on the tracklist for his new album More Love, Less Ego. Skepta – a previous Wizkid collaborator and self-proclaimed Nigerian Eagle – rubs shoulders with Naira Marley, the Nigerian star who kicked off his career by pioneering afroswing in London, but never crossed paths with Skeppy’s circle of grime stars. Together, the three of them commit to a central theme of More Love, Less Ego: horniness. DR
Spill Tab – CRÈME BRÛLÉE!
Chaos rules on this French-Korean-American artists’ latest track, as it transitions from plucked strings to grungy guitar riffs, to a laid-back but groovy outro. There’s no chorus, but when Spill Tab’s vocals do kick in, they balance out the maximalist production with catchy melodies that keep you coming back for more. Alt-pop at its most unpredictable. OP
