Came across this one earlier today & good god am I glad I did. It comes courtesy of singer/songwriter Chris McClenney & released this week on Soulection. Considering it's a debut single, the levels are very high.

A chance now for a listen to some great new stuff shared a short time ago from The Invisible. It's packed with drums, funky as hell & to be honest generally hard not to love. Recorded as part of some recent sessions for their new album, if Easy Now is anything to go by then we're in for a treat

Listen to Easy Now by The Invisible below & be sure to keep an eye out for more new material from them in the not too distant future

This week saw the release of a compilation put together by Ralph Hardy called Growing Pains. The 23 track compilation features a whole host of talent coming out of the UK at the minute & is well worth getting hold of.

One of the stand outs for us on it is this, In:Motion by the brilliant Isaac Danquah & production from our guy Hurricane - it's a great combination.

ME + 1 is the collaborative project from arguably 2 of the UK's finest right now - rapper ItsNate & producer JD. Reid. Both plying their trade solo over recent years (you might remember features for early Nate material on Plenty Vibes with Call Me A Cab & the rest of the Budgie collabs on the Suede Jones Smooth Material EP) they link up here for a full release forthcoming on Astral Black.

With an early September release date, the pair recently shared with the world a little snippet of what's to come with WG1KLG. Having already had a bag of support on the airwaves - being championed on Apple Music, Radio 1 & Rinse, I'm most definitely looking forward to hearing & seeing how this EP is received in a time that's really refreshing for British music. 

It feels as though in recent times producers & artists alike are starting to really own their work & develop a real sense of what it is they 'do'. Here's hoping that ultimately it will only breed more & more exciting, interesting music. There is without doubt, a whole host of authentic, original approaches to rap, hip hop & production styles about at the minute that really seem to be resonating with people in the UK consuming the music. Great news for everybody. ItsNate & JD. Reid included, because WG1KLG is fire. 

Listen to 'WG1KLG' - taken from ItsNate & JD. Reid's forthcoming 'ME+1' EP. Available Sept 11th on Limited Edition Cassette & Digital DL via Astral Black. Cassette comes with instrumentals on the B-side & digital comes with Mr Mitch remix of 'WG1KLG'.

It's titled Ricky from a producer by the name of Caserta on Shadeleaf Music - this particular track being a killer mix from label head honcho thatmanmonkz. If you aren't already familiar with his work, we suggest you quickly get acquainted.

UK rapper has been on our radar for a minute now, always been a fan of her work. But this week she upped the levels tenfold with the release of a new track Dead Body & video to match.

Taken from her debut album A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons the visuals for the new one from 21-year old out of North London depict a vast baron landscape, shot in black & white. Directed by Jeremy Cole, the video features panoramic shots of Little Simz dragging a bagged up corpse across the plains - it's heavy stuff.

Really digging this one from a rapper by the name of Joe Mechanoid. Titled Steady it's taken from his forthcoming EP He Emerges: The Noid set for release at the end of this month.
