Robert Glasper featuring H.E.R. and Meshell Ndegeocello – “Better Than I Imagined” (Kaytranada Remix)

Kaytranada adds a gritty afterglow to Robert Glasper’s recent collaboration with H.E.R. and Meshell Ndegeocello.

Zoomo featuring YL – “Autopilot”

After linking for a full collaborative project earlier this year, Zoomo and YL reunite for a hard-hitting cut from the producer’s new album, Utica.

Cleo Reed – “Breasts Got Big!”

Brief, but lacking from no angle, the latest drop from Cleo Reed is a jolt of glitchy chops and harmonies.

Naji and The Kount – “Angel”

The Kount comes through with the assist on a tender and searching ballad from Naji.

Madison McFerrin – “Hindsight”

Madison McFerrin signals her next chapter with an ivory-and-synth-crushed loosie.

John Carrol Kirby – “Love Theme”

John Carrol Kirby turns in a wandering and warm arrangement as his submission for Mexican Summer’s ongoing Looking Glass singles series.

Steve Lacy – “Atomic Vomit”

Steve Lacy stacks harmonies and hazy bars over a bubbly groove on this highlight from his surprise project, The Lo-Fis.

Mach-Hommy – “THBLKGD”

Mach-Hommy laces a staggered and disjointed beat with pitched-down ruminations on divinity and mortality on a murky standalone single.

Roc Marciano – “Mt. Marci”

The title track from Roc Marciano’s new album, Mt. Marci, is a snapshot of all his powers in four minutes. The airtight wordplay, the chipmunk soul loop, and the cinematic imagery, are all accounted for and finally available to stream sans $40 price tag.
