Mind’s Eye - Jordan Rakei

Ninja Tune’s Jordan Rakei delivers yet another track bursting with soulful vocals and irresistible groove. Infusing his Jazz, Soul and Hip-Hop influences into Mind’s Eye, Rakei also manages to present a slight reinvention of his trademark sound by utilising nuanced electronic textures. This is a must for any lazy Saturday morning.

Only Human - KH & Four Tet

Not thinking as far ahead as Saturday morning? Wrap your ears around this piece of underground electronica from the mighty Four Tet & KH (Kieran Hebden). Using minimal textures and masterfully evolving layers, you might be forgiven for thinking Steve Reich had ‘gone techno’.

Spearhead Records’ very own BCee strays from the usual parameters his trademark DnB sound and delivers this impressive, sun-touched Garage track. Complete with an effortlessly infectious topline courtesy of Charlotte Haining, First Love is the perfect way to break-in Spring 2019.

Hip-Hop duo Tebi Rex continue to push the boundaries within the Irish music scene with their visceral, nuanced and honest sound. This brooding yet impassioned track is undoubtedly deserving of its spot on this week’s list.

I'm Just Being Honest - Weezer

90’s nerd-rock icons Weezer return with one of their best records in a long time, The Black Album. ‘I’m Just Being Honest’ is undoubtedly the pick of the punch. No frills. Just a straight-up Indie anthem with a certain 90’s ‘flavour’ for good measure.
