Madison McFerrin delivers the extended 12″ edit of a viral house-anchored heater crafted in the hours following the announcement of a guilty verdict in George Floyd’s murder trial.

Audrey Nuna – “Baby Blues”

A buoyant bedroom r&b earworm off of Audrey Nuna‘s stellar new project, a liquid breakfast. 

CHAI – “Karaage”

Tokyo’s CHAI spins a sunny spell of soul on a standout from the group’s new album, WINK.

Georgia Anne Muldrow – “Passin Ooout!”

Georgia Anne Muldrow slips into a full-strut G-Funk groove on this potent instrumental from her new album, VWETO III.

Smino – “Rice & Gravy”

Allmos – “Interlusion”

Allmos shares a criminally short jolt of face-scrunching chords and staggered drum programs.

Mach-Hommy – “Blockchain”

Mach-Hommy goes in over a simmering soul loop on this stunner from the Jersey rapper’s Griselda debut. Pray for Haiti is out today, featuring appearances from Westside Gunn, Tha God Fahim, Keisha Plum and more.

Shine featuring Nappy Nina – “PRAYER”

It may have slipped under the radar upon release last month, but Shine and Nappy Nina’s “PRAYER” is a soothing and spiritual tw0-headed treatment.
