Top of the morning, good people. Welcome to the latest episode of The Round-Up.
Today, we’re bringing you a thorough scan of the week in music, marquee names and soon-to-bes alike. Short on full-lengths (though Ross From Friends and VanJess each delivered noteworthy debuts) the week’s most compelling frequencies arrived by way of single campaigns and loosies.
Blood Orange shared a double-sided glimpse at the next Dev Hynes-led project. The ever-illusive Jai and A.K. Paul finally followed through with another pair of interstellar singles from Fabiana Palladino and Ruthven via The Paul Institute. UK house spitter, Channel Tres, graces us once more with some four-to-the-floor party bars. Detroit legend, Phat Kat, pulled the curtain off of an unreleased J Dilla collaboration. And that’s just a sliver of what the week had to offer.
