We’ve selected the very best of the week’s new music for you to add to your playlist. Enjoy sounds from Bat for Lashes, Shura and of course, ZAYN.
The smooth verses of Mali Music are perfectly paired with ultimate vocalist Jhene Aiko, who adds a touch of pop to the laid back and layered beats. Plus it’s on the soundtrack for Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq.
Kaytranada goes full chill with this latest release that comes complete with guest slots for Karriem Riggins and Drake-endorsed Toronto producer River Tiber.
Shura’s epic “Touch” gets the late-night treatment from studio master Four Tet who manages to provide a shifting, shuffling beat without harming the delicacy of the original.
Bat for Lashes is back and producing songs that fit somewhere between Kate Bush and peak Bjork. Nice
This all-star collab was premiered at Alexander Wang’s AW16 show in New York. Intricate production from Baauer meets verses from M.I.A and K-pop legend G-Dragon.
WSTRN rework 80s club classic “Love Come Down” to produce a follow up to ”In2”. Another sure fire hit.
Jersey producer Mura Masa keeps the hype machine on alert with “What If I Go” that blends old-school club influences with contemporary production and vocals. Literally can’t wait for the album.
ZAYN continues to set up the anticipation for his debut solo record, Mind of Mine – coming to an internet near you this 25th March – with another single, “BeFoUr” that hits the same notes as “PILLOWTALK”, and is a guaranteed hit in the making
