DJ Harrison – “Be Better”

After a streak of shifty remixes (and a stellar 2020 outing with Rob Milton as Sons of The James,) DJ Harrison‘s first solo single in years is an all-pro exploration of muddy Soulquarian funk.

Nubya Garcia – “Inner Game (Blvck Spvde Remix)”

Blvck Spvde treats Nubya Garcia‘s “Inner Game” to a driving and lushly-layered polyrhythmic recalibration.

Helado Negro – “Hometown Dream”

Helado Negro cooks up a dreamy and entrancing spell on this standout from his new album, Far In, out today via Private Energy.

JPEGMAFIA crafts a bit of late-night r&b bliss on this glistening highlight from his new album, LP!, which is out today via EQT Recordings and Republic Records.

Maxo Kream – “MAMA’s PURSE”

Maxo Kream lays out his regrets on a crawling haunt from his star-studded new album, Weight of The World, out today via RCA.

SahBabii returns with some playful lessons on his latest loosie.

Dijon – “Rodeo Clown”

Dijon offers another glimpse at his upcoming debut album with a tortured, spacious and twangy ballad.

Black Milk – “Cause I Was Living”
