BEST OF THE WEEK: KNUCKS, BURNA BOY, 808INK & MORE

Despite no Glastonbury this weekend, and the most bizarre weather forecast the U.K. has ever seen (?!), there's enough good music for you enjoy at a kick back in the park, or take it indoors for a private rave.


Follow the official Spotify playlist here for your weekly round up of the most fire tracks just released.




'Party' - Pinch, Killa P

Pinch the producer is a major innovator in the UK underground scene. Pinch

released his first album, Underwater Dancehall, all the way back in 2007. Pinch’s

new album is darker than his other releases. In Party Killa P lends his legendry

flow, complementing this rumbling bassline. Killa P’s voice and words move with

the instrumental as one in the latter part of this track - well worth the listen. Check the video here too.


‘FXCKED UP’ - Knucks and Sam Wise

The track was produced by Knucks himself, and both artists highlight their versatility on this

song; effortlessly going from rapping in their usual flows to showcasing a more melodic

tone. Knucks has also blessed fans with the music video for his brand-new single ‘FXCKED UP’. The visuals show the pair vibing out to the song in a retro DeLorean, and it ends with the iconic photo of Novelist with the ‘Stop Killing The Mandem’ banner.


‘All I See’ - Kasien

Kasien is finally back with a new single entitled ‘All I See’, and has dropped a music video

alongside the release. This is the first piece of music he has dropped since his joint EP, K2,

with Kelvin Krash. On socials, the South London artist announced that this new single is taken from his upcoming debut EP – I FOUND PARADISE IN HELL. Watch the visuals for ‘All I See’ here.


'Sweating' - Alewya

The heat is here with Alewya's first single, produced by The Busy Twist. A new UK club sound weighted with a catchy beat and ethereal vocals. The black and white visuals leave us envious of a time so long ago; sweaty dance floors with epic dancers. The track is a powerful tribute to those speaking their truth. Alewya adds: “It’s about feeling chemistry with someone but also about a female who is not afraid of her prowess and power. It’s a mood.”



'Dust' - Kwaku Asante

Kwaku Asante: The rising R&B star you may not know of yet, but certainly won't be able to forget. Kwaku Asante's latest single is a wistfully soulful love song, with a bassline sure to get you grooving. Plus if you've seen this guy live, you'll know what I mean when I say the combo of such a rich voice with a tight band is impeccable. Take us to CHURCH!


'Riddick Bowe' - 808INK, Jesse James Solomon

The production on this track from 808Charmer will have you bopping your head with the most energy. The beat, combined with the raw raps of Mumblez and the smooth flow from Jesse James Solomon, make this a must addition to any summer playlist right now.


'Ride & Clutch, Pt. 2' - Tana, Unknown T, Aitch, M1llionz, JB Schofield

Not since Tinchy's 'Game Over' have we seen an all-star remix quite like this. Birmingham's Tana has joined forces with Unknown T, Aitch, M1llionz and JB Schofield for the rework of Ride and Clutch. With the original track blowing up earlier this year, some of the UK's hardest MCs come together to spin this in a fresh new direction.


‘One Love’ – Kieron Boothe

Kieron Boothe is back with his brand-new EP, Mr. Invisible 2. He graces the EP with an abundance of soulful energy, and this is especially showcased on ‘One Love’. ‘Just smoke and vibe with it’, the East London artist says on the hook, and this captures the whole mood of the song perfectly.


All these and more are available to stream via our official playlist. Enjoy!
