Need a break between Christmas songs? New music is out from SG Lewis, Ms Banks, Kojey Radical, Bakar, Aries and more.

"Time (feat. Rhye)" by SG Lewis

He's done it again! Another track from producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist SG Lewis' upcoming debut album 'Times', this one features Rhye and - as expected - is euphoric and relaxing in equal measures.

"You Don't Know" by Ms Banks

Following a powerful performance at the MOBO Awards, Ms Banks drops the confident and hard-hitting new single "You Don't Know", reminding us why she's one of the UK's finest rappers.

"Good" by Kojey Radical

Delivered by Kojey's powerful vocals, "Good" is a song with an uplifting message - something we all need to hear right now. In Kojey's words, the track serves as "a personal reminder that we are still going strong despite the pressures and anxiety that life offers. It’s a personal reminder to be grateful for the little things as well the bigger obstacles. Cause there’s lessons in everything..."

"Play (feat. Lancey Foux)" by Bakar

After featuring on Lancey Foux's recent track "POISON", Foux returns the favour by jumping on Bakar's single "Play". The two work together so well, it's easy to see why they couldn't resist another collab.

"Lovin' Me (feat. Phoebe Bridgers)" by Kid Cudi

2020 has been full of surprises, but no-one could have seen this one coming. Kid Cudi and Phoebe Bridgers link up for a collab on Cudi's new album 'Man On The Moon III: The Chosen'. But hey, the pairing definitely works.


Rising south London rapper, INFAMOUSIZAK, shares the downtempo, reflective track "GOOD ONES", on which he laments letting a lover slip through his fingers.

"Charlie" by Everyone You Know

In this haunting track, brothers Rhys and Harvey - AKA Everyone You Know - aren't taking about a woman's relationship with a bloke called Charlie, but a certain Class A substance. The single features a lyric sample from The Streets’ "Weak Become Heroes" which has Mike Skinner’s blessing.

"Praise That Shitty House" by Lowertown

Atlanta-based Dirty Hit signees, Lowertown, release their 6-track 'Honeycomb, Bedbug' EP, from which this is a personal fave.

"Go Low 2.0" by A92

Hailing from Drogheda, Ireland, if "Go Low 2.0" is anything to go by, Drill group A92 are set to make it big on both sides of the Irish Sea, at the very least.

"Garage Rooftop" by Q

The rising Florida artist, who simply goes by Q, has released 5-track EP 'The Shave Experiment', an opus that's reminiscent of Tame Impala, Omar Apollo and Toro y Moi. Incredibly, Q is the sole producer, vocalist, and instrumentalist on most of his music. Keep an eye on this one.


Building his name on YouTube, genre-bending artist Aries explains "'CONVERSATIONS' is about begging for attention. Whether that be from someone in particular or more generally".

"GGGB - HOTEL ROOM DRAMA" by Crystal Murray & Dian

Parisian singer Crystal Murray has dropped "Good Girl Gone Bad", a single that came about as result of her self-curated ‘hotel room sessions’ - where she had been filming herself recording live jams in hotels and apartments in Paris. The perfect pre-drinks jam.

"simmerDown" by thomTide

San Diego creator thomTide drops his most vocally-forward track yet, in the shape of alt-pop number "simmerDown".

"The Algea" by Chloe Rodgers

With whispering vocals and an acoustic guitar that builds into cinematic strings, Chloe Rodgers' new track is beautiful piece of sonic work.
