If Spotify is your vibe you can also check out our Bars playlist which we update weekly.

01. Princess Nokia releases album '1992 Deluxe'

 

Princess Nokia’s highly anticipated ‘1992 Deluxe’ is finally here. It’s an extension of her 2016 mixtape 1992 which features eight new tracks. Princess Nokia also dropped a beautiful video for one of the album’s tracks ‘Flava’. Talking about the video she said she, “wanted to make a cinematic short film, with a narration that foreshadows the intersectionality of self esteem, self love and cultural approbation of urban beauty in mainstream media, that accurately depicted a portrayal of urban sisterhood through a personal and accurate lens.”

02. Cosmo's Midnight – 'Mind Off' ft Kudu Blue

 

Cosmo’s Midnight dropped this track ‘Mind Off’ featuring Kudu Blue a couple of weeks ago but we’ve only just discovered the video. The clip sees the duo up to some Robin Hood antics as they pilfer a wealthy suburb before being distracted by a surreal twist. We’ll let you witness it for yourself above.

03. iLoveMakonnen – 'Love' ft Rae Sremmurd

 

iLoveMakonnen is back with his second clip in recent months this time for ‘Love’ featuring Rae Sremmurd. The track sees a lighter direction for Makonnen since his last release ‘Back On The Xan‘.

04. Young Thug & Carnage aka Young Martha – 'Homie' ft Meek Mill

 

Young Thug and Carnage have teamed up to form Young Martha, releasing this track ‘Homie’ featuring Meek Mill. The clip for this one is WILD and that’s all we’re going to say.

05. Syd's new EP 'Always Never Home'

 

Off the back of  huge success with her debut solo album Fin Syd keeps delivering the goods with EP Always Never Home. It’s everything you want from Syd and more: smooth, cruisey, chill and passionate all at once.

06. Father & Lil Yachty – 'Dreamboat Freestyle'

 

It’s probably time we all admit that Teenage Emotions was kind of underwhelming. But on this freestyle with Father he’s back in fine sailing form. It’s nothing short of classic Yachty fulfilling his potential and giving us hope for future releases. Lil boat is back in safe waters.

07. ODESZA album 'A Moment Apart'

Seattle-based electro duo ODESZA are back with their third album A Moment Apart. The album shows off the duo’s dynamic range with both euphoric and contemplative moments throughout. The timing for the new work is perfect if you’re in Australia with the ODESZA here playing exclusive shows next week.

08. Sensible J drops video for 'Fire Sign' ft Remi & Sampa The Great

 

Sensible J’s solo work earlier this year caught everyone’s attention—and why wouldn’t it when he’s one of the country’s best hip-hop producers. In ‘Fire Sign’ he teams up with regular partner Remi and recent tour mate Sampa The Great. It’s a feel good clip featuring footage of their recent tour that serves nothing but good vibes.
