Futurist Kelela and hip hip radical Le1f team up for a new spaced out duet titled ‘OICU’ produced by P. Morris. The track pays homage to both their respective styles: Le1f’s fierce baritone cuts through the thickly textured atmosphere, while Kelela’s pristine vocal soars above it – the result of which is a hazey, eccentric melodrama disguised as undercover slow jam.

Flying Lotus returns with animated and fully psychedelic new album teaser featuring some of the mind-altering new material from his forthcoming album You’re Dead! Dubbed as a pioneer from the get go, it’s rare to see an artist live up to their buzz like FlyLo has and is. Known for fearlessly blending the golden traditions of hip hop, electronica and jazz, this new project feels even fuller and more established than his previous releases – which considering his catalogue is quite the feat already.

Kwabs follows up his Wrong or Right and Pray For Love EPs with ‘Walk’, a brand new, stand-alone single out September 29. Unlike the soulful bursts, electronic glitches and R&B vibes of his previous efforts, this new one will have you head banging with its military-like marching drums carrying Kwabs’ rich tones along. Give it a spin below!

Only a band like alt-J can make a line like ‘I wanna turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet’ sound so very… appealing. It’s from the trio’s latest tune ‘Every Other Freckle’, taken from their forthcoming full length This Is All Yours out September 22. Once again we’re thrown into a whirlwind of elegant, sophisticated vocal melodies and eclectic instrumentation; and once again, we’re absolutely smitten.

‘Say You Love Me’ is Jessie Ware’s third offering from Tough Love, her sophomore effort out October 6. The record takes things down a notch from the more profound title track and ‘Share It All‘ as Ware graces the soft, sombre BenZel production with an effortless air of elegance and vocal control.

Moko

Having first caught our attention with ‘Honey Cocaine‘ last year, Moko steps it up a notch with ‘Ceremony’ the first single from her upcoming Gold EP (out September 7). The British starlet lays down some seriously effortless vocals over a fast-moving drum and bass soundbed. Damn, this girl can sing!

Presenting ‘Shudder’, the brand new single from Nashville trio BASECAMP. Once again those Sampha-esque vocals swirl around sparkling layers of synths and shimmering electronics, bringing a refinement to their breezy take on R&B. If this isn’t good enough to feature on their next EP, we can’t help but imagine what will… Listen up!

Ryn Weaver, real name Aryn Wuthrich, burst out of nowhere when she dropped her Cashmere Cat/Benny Blanco produced debut single ‘OctaHate’, an enthralling explosion of twinkling sounds spearheaded by the singer’s super-strong vocal. Today, the LA born singer has shared the title-track to her forthcoming EP, Promises. Amongst the catchy lyrics, Ryn evokes more sentiment in this one, really bringing light to that powerful voice of hers. Give both tracks a spin below, you won’t be disappointed.

Oh, wait – you thought Beyonce’s was done? Nah.

Queen Bey calls upon the lyrical excellence of Nicki Minaj to accompany and help rework her hyphy single ‘Flawless’. In keeping with Yonce’s new found freedom “to speak her mind”, she raps about that elevator incident, as well as her rumoured divorce from husband Jay Z. Of course Minaj brings her own levels – no one can touch her when she’s grilled up like this. As remixes go – this may be one of the best ones Bey’s released so far.

LA songstress and renowned goddess BANKS lends her vocals to ‘Don’t You Love’, the latest song from fellow collaborator Lil Silva’s forthcoming Mabel EP. Silva’s soft musings open the slow-burning atmospherics of the track before BANKS mixes in her own elegant harmonies. This is the first of two tracks the two have conjured up for the EP out August 4, hold tight.
