Playlist: Week 30 July 2016

This week’s playlist has a summery vibe thanks to Mabel, POWERS and Skepta. As ever though, there’s new songs from emerging artists or bands as well as some that you’ll be well familiar with. Press play below and enjoy.

Angel – Hop On (Feat Steff London)
West London singer Angel’s follow up to “Rude Boy” is the Steff London assisted “Hop on”. It’s a slow jam with a 90s vibe and a beat that’ll have you head bobbing!
“Hop On” is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

Cass McCombs – Run Sister Run
On “Run Sister Run” Cass McCombs mixes a funky beat, with spoken word and a bit of singing. It’s a song that you can enjoy without having to pay close attention to the lyrics (as some people do), but unlike Young Thug’s music it’s one you’ll enjoy more if you don’t. “Run Sister Run” is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

Clams Casino – A Breath Away ft. Kelela
“A Breath Away” is te latest release from Clams Casino’s new album 32 Levels, which will also feature Vince Staples and Lil B. As expected it’s alot more emotive than his previous singles which featured the rappers. “A Breath Away” is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

Donae’O – My Circle (Remix) Ft Cadet, Wiley And Ghetts
Rising Grime star Cadet and Grime legends Wiley and Ghetts join Donae’O for the remix to his latest banger “My Circle”. Hopefully an album’s on the way? 

Ezra Furman – Teddy I’m Ready
“Teddy I’m Ready” is taken from Ezra Furman’s newly announced Big Fugitive Life EP which will be released on August 19th. “Teddy I’m Ready” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify. Ezra’s clearly ready to rock and roll – are you?

Hoops – Cool 2
“Cool 2” is an upbeat dreamy indie pop track from Bloomington quartest Hoops. “Cool 2” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify

Mabel – Thinking Of You
Mabel’s follow up to 2015’s “My Boy My Town”  is the summery “Thinking of You”. The song has a laidback 90’s RnB vibe to it and gets a massive thumbs up from me. “Thinking of You” is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

POWERS – Sunshine
Here’s another summery tune, this time its from Electro pop duo POWERS (Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru). It’s a feel good pop song with a dance and Hip Hop elements amd a brilliant break-come chorus. “Sunshine” is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

Samm Henshaw – These Hands
Singer/ songwriter Samm Henshaw’s new single “These Hands” is a brilliant display of his talent. The London artist’s voice shines on the soulful track which I can’t get enough of at the moment! “These Hands” is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.
Skepta – Coming Soon (ft Makonnen & Céon)
Makonnen joins Skepta for his bubbly summer single “Coming Soon”. This dropped out of the blue and just in time for Boy Better Know’s headline slot at this weekend’s Wireless Festival in London. “Coming Soon” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.
