"Don't Get Lost" by Sasha Keable
A jazzy, funky track to keep spinning, which showcases Sasha Keable's robust vocals. The British-Colombian singer has nabbed collabs with the likes of Disclosure and supported London legend Katy B.
"Marathon" by Aziya
"Marathon" is just one of a line-up of head-banging tracks that graces Aziya's debut EP 'We Speak of Tides' which drops today. This is a track we can all relate to: "I've gotta pick myself and keep running" Aziya repeats.
"Standard" by Venna, ft. Knucks
Lush backing textured with a smooth saxophone, tinkling piano and wispy synths pave the way for Knucks's assured soft hip-hop bars. Venna has been carving out a bit of a name for himself, offering up his expert musical skills to work with the likes of Wizkid, Burna Boy, 6lack, Snoh Aalegra, J Hus, AJ Tracey and more.
"White Teeth" by Kay Young
The Jay-Z signed artist is back with a new single which is pretty much all about smiles. Sharing the same name as a certain novel by Zadie Smith, the track embodies chillness, with breezy trumpets and understated vocals from Kay Young.
"Fool" by Dominic Wolf
Starting out as what would seem to be a gentle indie track, Dominic Wolf's latest suddenly slaps you in the face with a sonic outburst of electronic sounds. Turns out it took a while - the longest production time for the hotly tipped DIY artist yet - to hone this particular chaos of sound.
"No So Para Ti" by María Isabel
Plush, billowy synths provide the dreamscape for this reggaetón twined with R&B single. The Dominican-American is one of the most highly anticipated artists of this year, with shout outs from Wonderland, COLORS and Clash.
"Better Days" by Erica Cody
The Ireland-based R&B artist returns with a hard-hitting single reminiscent of early oos pop. "'Better Days' fell out of me almost three years ago (times flies) when I thought better days didn't exist," the artist explains. Previously, Erica Cody has supported Jessie J, En Vogue and many more.
"good enough" by Maria Kelly
Maria Kelly's so-soft-they-could-melt vocals stay true to the West Irish alt-folk artist's delicate and tender style. The track has been released in the lead up to her debut album, which tracks her mental health journey and experience of therapy.
"Ego" by Porij
Zapping electronics and a rumbling bassline take off with a trip-hop beat. The four-piece Manchester band have already been spotted by major outlets like The Guardian. Now, Eggy, Tommy, Jammo and Tom are ready to take over your airwaves.
"I'll Be Sweet" by Olive Featherstone
The sophomore single from Bristol-based singer-songwriter Olive Featherstone, alternatively known as Olivia Jasmine Noonan, "I'll Be Sweet" is a punching comeback, contrasting fierce guitars (with a hint of a spaghetti western feel) and off-kilter drums with Olive's dreamy vocals.
"Puppy Tears" by Quarry
Quarry's just dropped his debut mixtape, 'Is This What You Call Love?', which features the lead single "Puppy Tears". It's an upbeat number that Quarry says "holds real pieces of my heart".
