Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist feat. Conway The Machine – “Babies & Fools”
Griselda’s Conway joins Freddie Gibbs and Alchemist for a deceptively-heavy outing on this breezy selection from the stellar and out-of-the-blue Alfredo project.

Readying the release of an upcoming collaborative project with Madlib, Fly Anakin proves he’s more than ready for his moment on this glimmering and stout slow-burner from his placeholding project, The 8’s.
Chuck Strangers – “Rain”
Short and cerebral, Brooklyn’s Chuck Strangers packs light on his latest loosie.
Cavalier – “Bokeem”
Cavalier and Iman Omari’s late-2019 sleeper catches a gloriously-glitchy redux.
Lucki – “Pure Love-Hate”
A shamelessly enjoyable standout from Lucki’s newly-released EP, Almost There.
Kemba – “Kill Your Idols”
Kemba mines a range of emotions over whirling keys and a steel-toed stomp on his latest standalone stunner.
Starchild & The New Romantic feat. Toro y Moi – “Tape”
Starchild & The New Romantic gets a boost from Toro y Moi on a nostalgically washed-out anthem that’ll carry straight through iso season.
Gabriel Garzón-Montano – “Someone”
Gabriel Garzón-Montano glides back into the fold with a buttery new ballad.
Juls and Sango – “Angele Ni Fie”
Sango and Juls step into acid-house territory on this jazz-headed dance floor heater.
