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.

Fly Anakin – “Part li”

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.

Sebastian Tellier – “Hazy Feelings”

Francofunk veteran Sebastian Tellier dips back into his old bag of electrified tricks with this jabbing synth-and-sun-soaked trot from his new album, Domesticated.
