Jamie xx is back with an adventurous new track in the form of ‘All Under One Roof Raving’. Released by Young Turks today, it follows the double A-side single ‘Girl/Sleep Sound‘ which is also lifted off his forthcoming debut album. Jamie’s distinct, future tropics sound on ‘All Under One Roof Raving’ (an ode to his love for London) that yet again cements his position as one of Britain’s best producers.

Many heads will be familiar with Lil Silva from his various post-grime releases and collaborations over the past few years, but a more mainstream audience were most likely introduced to him through his recent work with rising pop goddess BANKS.

Now though Silva has announced his much anticipated solo return with a new 5-track EP titled Mabel, a project which will see him push his unique talents further into the stratosphere. Silva’s new release not only signifies a huge sonic leap for him as a producer, but also introduces him as an impressive frontman singer. Take a listen to the EP’s title track below and get ready for that new extended player on August 4th – we’ve had it on repeat for a couple months now, you won’t be disappointed.

Beloved, award winning indie outfit Alt-J (now a three-piece) return to the fray with the first single lifted off their much anticipated sophomore album This is all Yours (September 22nd). Marking what the band herald a “new sound”, ‘Hunger of the Pine’ is a sublimely forged, exceptionally cool power epic brimming with multilayered instruments and a poetic vocal performance from lead singer Joe Newman.

… And that Miley Cyrus sample is inspired.

This is Kwamie Liv, a Danish singer who draws you in with her dark and captivating menagerie of R&B. Apart from a sweltering cover of The Weeknd’sWhat You Need‘ and debut single ‘5 AM‘, there’s not much else on her. But there doesn’t need to be - ‘Follow You’ lays it down and tells you exactly who she is. UPDATE: Peek the accompanying music video here too.

Amsterdam’s Full Crate & Mar return with a new video for their ‘Man x Woman’ single which first dropped back in January. Following a relatively extended hiatus pursuing solo projects, they’re back, armed with a new recording contract with Island Records and prepping new material. Take a look at their sexy new video featuring a bunch of morphing concrete, naked people and a rather scantily clad Mar (phwoar ladies!).

Here we go again. Wonderkid MNEK storms through with yet another impeccably crafted new single titled ‘Wrote a Song About You Last Night’. Driven by an infectious house beat, the song puts real focus on MNEK’s genius for penning undeniable pop bangers. Not only that – he also happens to be out-singing every one of his contemporaries without really breaking a sweat. All this from a guy still in his teens – mind blowing.

Here’s a treat, just in time for the weekend…

SBTRKT and Sampha join forces once again with ‘Temporary View’, the instrumental of which featured on the former’s Transitions EP as ‘Resolute’. As with everything these two come up with, it’s an absolute treat. Sampha’s heartwarming vocals rise with warmth over SBTRKT’s stream of glistening electronics. No word on whether this’ll feature on SBTRKT’s forthcoming album, either way, give it a spin below!

O Boy

If you happen to stumble upon Locke’s website, you’ll be greeted by this curious image, and the following text: “it’s getting dark. save me from a world without love. all that is masculine is feminine is masculine is feminine is masculine is feminine… no one is LOCKED.Intrigued? Read on. 

‘O Boy’ is the follow up single from enigmatic NYC based artist Locke, who’s inexplicably dark and malevolent debut single ‘We Are the Prey‘ was released a couple months back. ‘O Boy’ serves a cold backdrop of sparse post-Timbaland drums guided by Locke’s eerily whispered chants (“it’s getting darker everyday, save me”). You’ll find yourself utterly drawn into this, it’s a hypnotising.

Both Oceaán and abhi//dijon have created a buzz with their delectably eloquent slices of R&B, and last week, the Maryland duo shared a beautiful rendition of the former’s ‘Need U‘. Over a sugary soundbed of shimmering echoes and a gushing bassline, Abhi and Dijon add some foggy vocals into the mix; invigorating a super chilled vibe.

Kanye West

A new Kanye West song titled ‘God Level’ produced by 88Keys, Hudson Mohawke, Mike Dean & Noah Goldstein has surfaced in a new Adidas FIFA World Cup commercial for their All In or Nothing campaign, which you can watch here. This probably isn’t the full track but take a listen to what we have so far below – hopefully we’ll get a fuller version soon because this sounds like a healthy addition to the Yeezus tracklist (it was obviously recorded during the album sessions) – an LP I still believe to be one of the best of 2013 (contrary to popular opinion).
