Luxe Lana Del Rey is back releasing Venice Bitch with and opening verse lyrics such as ‘fresh out of fucks forever’, it sets the tone of super chill melancholy listening.
Dizzee Rascal – Money Right ft Skepta
Initially, I slept on Dizzee’s EP release two weeks ago, but after listening to the True Gordie’s interview where Dizzee talks about self producing, some insane stories of his fame and referencing the iconic Boy in The Corner, how could I miss this heavyweight track featuring Skepta.

Soul singer songwriter Mahalia’s EP Seasons was released on September 21st, if you’re after warm soothing vocals and easy beats to ease you through the week, this is the EP you’re looking for.
Christine and the Queens – Doesn’t Matter
Sporting a french crop, its very new hair = new album. Héloïse Letissier released Chris onto the world with it’s 80s funk and all the while maintaining super slick transitions into french and english. The Guardian called the tracks ‘MJ reborn in the body of a 30-year-old Frenchwoman hell-bent on kicking the notion of womanhood around until it’s puree’ and I couldn’t agree more, it’s glorious.
