The Round-Up returns with all of the week’s most essential cuts.

And we back (*pre-preachy Chance voice*). The Round-Up‘s been on a bit of a hiatus, but Okayplayer’s weekly scan of crucial cuts has officially returned to keep your ear fixed to the racing pulse of new music releases.

HEAR: Okayplayer’s Songs of Summer 2018

The comeback is equipped with funk of terrestrial and otherworldly origins, ala Kamasi Washington and Brainfeeder’s latest signee, Louis Cole; R&B experiments courtesy of Chassol, Ben Khan, Anna Wise, and Jon Bap; dancefloor freakouts from Lizzo and Katzú Oso; as well as some trap-savvy treats (no tricks) from Freddie Gibbs, Yung Bans, Buddy,  and A$AP Ferg. And we can’t forget Georgia Anne Muldrow’s lo-fi-smothered, 808s craze debut “Overload.” And yes, there’s even some residual heat from the G.O.O.D. Summer finale, Teyana Taylor’s stunning Keep That Same Energy.
