"Envious" by Aluna
Since stepping out on her own, Aluna has been releasing banger after banger. Her latest track "Envious" is an upbeat electro-pop number that gives us a taste of her upcoming debut album.
"Baby It's You" by London Grammar
The return everyone's been talking about. London Grammar are back with a meticulously produced, multi-layered stunner featuring vocalist Hannah Reid's enrapturing falsetto.
"Airplane Mode" by Nines and NSG
Nines and NSG link up for a smooth yet hard-hitting head-bopper on "Airplane Mode". Grab your headphones, turn on flight mode and sink into the smooth chorus and vibey beat.
"Champion" by Fireboy DML and D Smoke
This victorious, feel-good track is one of many brilliant songs from Nigerian musician Fireboy DML's newly-released album, 'APOLLO'.
"Motionz" by Miles from Kinshasa and Murkage Dave
Congo-born, London-based artist Miles from Kinshasa has teamed up with Murkage Dave on this delightfully laid-back track. Miles' EP 'Beloved' is set for release next Friday.
"Strangest Thing" by Emily Nash
This goosebump-inducing slammer is absolutely MADE for the festival tent. Worcestershire-born teenage producer Emily Nash is one to watch. Despite only having three songs out, we predict her name on festival billings around the world next year for sure.
"Hit Me" by 88/89
Newcomers 88/89 emanate tinges of Foster the People on this cinematic track. Blast it loud with the windows down.
"Ara" by EFFY
Hailed as a 'rising star' by Pete Tong, EFFY is quickly becoming one of the UK's most exciting house/techno music producers and DJs. The drop on this is unexpected and HEAVY AF. Buckle in.
"Peaches" by Eleni Drake
As soft as a peach, London-based Eleni Drake's new song is slow, delicate, and perfect for a lazy morning or evening wind-down.
"Some Nerve" by Home For Joy
Providing "tunes from Tottenham", newcomers Home For Joy seem to have bottled a sunny day with their debut tune.
"5ADAY" by Kemi Ade
This sexy lo-fi R&B jam is a great return from Kemi Ade. "Get down on your knees, I'm ready for service" is a particularly great line.
