Black Milk 'Give the Drummer Sum'

Backroad Gee 'I Got Mine/My Famlee'

Sam Newsome 'Ethiopian Jews'


Wizkid 'Essence feat. Tems'

Dennis Brown 'Money In My Pocket'

Busta Rhymes 'Strap Yourself Down'


Micachu 'Blue Shit'

"Because Mica is the dopest. Check out the collective Curl they have with Coby Sey and Brother May too."

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills 'Djurkel'

"This album is from probably my favourite record released this year so could have picked any track but I love the way this one develops and builds throughout. The playing, ideas and production is incredible throughout."

This Heat 'The Fall of Saigon'

"I’ve been listening to This Heat a lot recently. If you don’t know their work go and check it out. This was recorded in 1978 for a John Peel session but could have been made yesterday.


Karen Nyame KG, Scratcha DVA 'Baga Drmz'

"Big tune, great producers, the drums are heavy, and connects a lot of dots musically, early UK funky days were a great time to go out and it feels like these artists are continuing the natural progression and legacy of the music.

Wonky Logic 'Boss Slug'

"Talented, versatile producer and multi-instrumentalist hailing from Leeds, and also part of the “London Jazz” scene, if you don’t know get to know."

Ital Rockers 'Ital’s Anthem' (Treble Down, Bass Up Mix)

"Big up DJ Homes aka Homer Harriot, producer and multi-instrumentalist getting the recognition he deserves, and respect to Mark Iration, both foundational in the Leeds music scene, this track really captures the feeling of the region for me, and you can hear the influence they had on bassline."
