Rema – “Trouble Maker”
Riding high off his success over the past few years, including his recent single “Pretty Girl” alongside Ice Spice, Nigerian superstar Rema drops off his brand new EP RAVAGE.

West London’s very own P-rallel has been causing serious waves recently, optimised by his brand new debut mixtape Movement. Consisting of ten immaculately produced features, its project closer “Treat Me Right” featuring Dom Valentino and dexter that does it for us. A sleek head bopper.
Yune Pinku – “Killing Bee”
Bursting onto the scene just two years ago, yunè pinku continues to cement herself as one of the most forward thinking artists right now. Blending pop with club music, the Malaysian-Irish singer, songwriter and producer serves up an intoxicating single, successfully merging varying electronic styles and synth elements.
CASISDEAD – “Actin Up Ft. Desire”
Cult hero CASISDEAD finally unleashes his debut album Famous Last Words, proving to be a masterclass. Personal favourite is nostalgic cut “Actin Up” featuring the beautiful vocals of Desire. CAS has been a staple of UK rap since day dot and deserves all the acclaim he gets.
Sofia Kourtesis – “Habla Con Ella”
This single is taken from Sofia Kourtesis’ recently acclaimed album Madres. The Peruvian-born, Berlin-based artist follows up a string of dazzling EP’s with perhaps her best work yet. In amongst the effusive house selects lies “Habla Con Ella” — an upbeat house classic. Can’t get enough.
