Domo Genesis and The Alchemist featuring Earl Sweatshirt, SpaceGhostPurpp and Action Bronson – “The Daily News”
After 11 years in streaming purgatory, this murky and menacing posse cut from Domo Genesis and The Alchemist’s stellar 2012 mixtape, No Idols, gets a second life along with the rest of the project, which debuted on DSPs today alongside an expansive merch drop for the album via ALC Records.
Jay Worthy featuring Roc Marciano and Bun B – “Underground Legend”
Roc Marciano and Bun B join Jay Worthy on a wailing, chest-beating, status-asserting loosie.
ENNY – “2am in Central”
ENNY savors a needed moment of full control on this slippery late-night r&b anthem from her new project, We Go Again, which is out now via FAMM.
Goya Gumbani – “Cloth & Polish”
Goya Gumbani embeds a batch of sophisticated and spirited wordplay into this lux and leisurely loosie.
SBTRKT featuring Sampha and George Riley – “L.F.O.”
If you’re wondering where Sampha‘s been, all signs point towards being regularly holed up in the studio with SBTRKT as of late. The duo reunites on this gloriously glitchy gem that gives way to a transcendent house-specked send-off. It’s the latest in a string of singles from the venerable UK producer, who appears to be clearing the way for a long-awaited follow-up to his 2016 album, SAVE YOURSELF.
Salami Rose Joe Louis – “Dimcola Reprise”
Salami Rose Joe Louis conducts a masterclass in eccentric, genre-melting experimentation on this weird, wild, and wonderful, glimpse at her upcoming album, Akousmatikous, which is slated to arrive on May 19th via Brainfeeder, featuring contributions from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Dakim, Soccer96, and more.
