You’ll remember back in March we introduced you to Oceaán and his brand of R&B-tinted productions, well now you can enjoy the video for his enslaving single ‘Need U’. Visually speaking its all rather simplistic and predictable – the video follows a couple of dancers breaking around town hitting up estates, chicken shops and cornershops – but any excuse to re-up this tune should be taken. Make sure you grab his debut EP if you haven’ already…

Atlanta native Raury certifies the stakes following on from his impressive ‘God’s Whisper’ debut with a brand new single called ‘Sunshine'; a down-tempo dedicated to his high school prom. Featuring an ambrosial female vocal and a confident set of verses from the young rapper, ‘Sunshine’ goes a long way in securing our already piqued interest. Looking forward to seeing this guy develop his skills.

‘Tomorrow’ featuring veteran soul singer Raheem DeVaughn is the second single lifted from The Roots’ forthcoming album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. The uncomplicated track, led by a simple piano and shuffling drums is accompanied exclusively by DeVaughn’s sanguine performance – disrupted only by a flurry of instrumentation that culminates the songs outro.

Brooke Candy has made a name for herself by creating outlandish, often NSFW videos and by collaborating with interweb fascinators Grimes and Charlie XCX. Now she’s readying the release of her debut EP Opulence, which is executively produced by songwriting high-priestess Sia. The video for the EP’s title track is every bit the club-kid spectacle Candy has become known for. Gaga will not be pleased. Nor will the ball girls.

which has been executively produced by songwriting high-priestess Sia and launches festivities with a new video for the projects title track.

Unquestionably the most intriguing song tracklisted on Future’s Honest album has been the one marked with a feature from man-God Andre 3000. Combining worlds, both Future and 3 Stacks bring their respective charms on ‘Benz Friendz (Watchutola)’, but of course – get on a record with André Lauren Benjamin and understand your place. This feels greater than “just a” Future song.

It’s been a hot, hot, hot minute since Teyana Taylor has done anything significant in music, but now signed to G.O.O.D Music – the hope is the next few months will prove fruitful for her. Although she’s always been a divisive character, her talent has always been apparent (to me at least) and ‘Sorry’ goes a long way to remind people of such certainties. Exposing her deliciously toned vocals, Taylor delicately riffs an emotional melody and for the first time in a long time – really shows off what she’s made of. Lets hope there more where this came from.

Cult beloved singer Lykke Li has shared her latest single ‘Gun Shot’, the second taken off her forthcoming third album I Never Learn (May 5th). Armed with the power of 80’s power-balladry ‘Gun Shot’ carries remnants of Madonna new-wave era across its entire soundscape. This is more than a little bit great, it’s wonderful.

You can stream I Never Learn in full via NPR.

Fresh from releasing his prodigious Waterfall EP last month, British wonderkid Evian Christ rehashes Young Thug’s blaze anthem ‘Stoner’. As per usual, Christ beefs up Young Thug’s original by attaching a fully loaded, fully murky bassline, unrepressed synths and some Timbo reminiscent effects (tell me that one bit don’t sound like a baby crying?). Download here, listen loudly.

The legendary Roots crew return following their acclaimed Undun LP in 2011 with ‘When the People Cheer’, the first single taken off their forthcoming album … And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. Bathed in the thoughtful overtones Roots fans have become accustomed too, the track  serves a nocturne beat which Black Thought uses to trace his contemplative verses. This may not be the most “exciting” single floating around but Roots heads will appreciate it. We’re nodding.
