Kid Cudi - Show Out (with Skepta & Pop Smoke)
"The first time I heard this I had to pull it back. Skepta’s verse and then Cudi on the other half - cold."

Backroad Gee - Party Popper (ft. Pa Salieu & Ambush Buzzworl)
"Backroad's voice, energy and feistiness spills out so easy - this track is infectious simply because of his vocal placements on this tune."

Ghetts - Fire & Brimstone
"Ghetts and his split personality on tracks... I can never get tired of it. I love the Dizzee adlibs spilling through the chorus and Ghetts and his carefully written stories put you right in the place he was picturing."

AJ Tracey - Anxious
"AJ Tracey brings that 'this is something I do with just my friends' energy! I don’t know how to explain it but it’s a feeling where it’s all nostalgia again and I want to bring out an old Sony Ericsson just to Bluetooth this to my friends"

Digga D - Woi
"The humour Digga D puts in his lyrics! I listen to him just to hear what he says next because this guy is hilarious and I like that it can show in his music... That is something not everyone can do."

Rema - Bounce
"Rema is just in his own lane. Nothing ever sounds like Rema, and Rema sounds like nothing we know... That’s why he will always be in whatever playlist I create."

070 Shake - Microdosing
"The production and the way the vocals pop through in this is heavenly. Her lyrics are always captivating and true... This song is a journey all the way to the end with those guitars coming in."

Dizzee Rascal - Eastside (ft. Ghetts & Kano)
"This is an all types of shaking your head kind of song, especially when Dizzee comes in – at that point good luck! Keep your hat on, because the whole system has crashed by the time Kano comes in. That’s how I feel with Eastside"

GAIKA - Of Saints (ft. Tayhana)
"The passion that cuts through GAIKA's tracks is something you can’t skip. You have to really take it all in and it’s in the way he wants you to be engaged."

"The whole of Amaarae for me is in the title of this track. She oozes out an angelic nature but at the same time this Hell's Angel persona cuts through. Me, I love that mixture like crazy and the tracks are always fun."

Travis Scott & Kid Cudi - The Scotts
"When I hear this, it makes me want to use it as a soundtrack for a movie I’m in – Cudi and Travis is a combo I’ll always pay to see so this is amusing to me."

Arlo Parks - Hope
"Arlo Parks is one young girl with an old soul and you can interpret that in her music. This young lady has lived a thousand lives. I’m happy she shares it all in the music."

Goldfrapp - Strict Machine
"Growing up my eyes would catch the Top Of the Pops show. Some songs I’d see from start to end to get the artist names and song title, but songs like 'Strict Machine' where I caught it half way though and it wasn’t until now where I’m much older where I started to love it. I’m like "Ohhhh wow ok, now we have to go through the whole catalogue" so this track takes me to little Flo sitting on my living-room floor."

FLOHIO, Clams Casino & Cadenza - Pounce
"To work with Clams Casino is a bliss. Another collaboration is due, but from YouTubing his instrumentals back in the day for writing exercises to having his production behind my vocals was and still is a wholesome moment for me."

Brent Faiyaz & DJ Dahi - Gravity (ft. Tyler, The Creator)
"I haven’t listened to Brent Faiyaz that much before this but quickly did my homework after and my ears are open. Tyler brings presence to whatever he approaches so when I saw this floating around I really had to press play quickly. I wasn’t disappointed."
