In the current age of social media and streaming, it would be easy to overlook a vital element that has bound the music scene together across the years; one that has perhaps been sacrificed somewhat in recent times… community. This week, we spoke to Fred and Freddy – founders of Keep Hush – the music streaming platform aiming to keep a tight knit communal spirit at the heart of everything they do.
In another great week for music, Octavian dropped his new mixtape ‘Endorphins’, and we gave the low-down on the rappers unique set of tunes.
Elsewhere, we premiered Catnipp’s rework of BABii’s ‘POiiSON’, as well as Intern Hookup’s house joint, ‘Do It Now’, while also acquiring an exclusive mix from Paris-based-DJ Miley Serious, featuring her favourite labels’ new and unreleased material.
To get in the summer mood, Cambridge festival Strawberries & Creem provided a helpful guide on how to build your own festival, and, on the hot topic of global warming, we pondered whether or not the agenda of climate change had space to flourish in dance music.
We’ve condensed all the best new music into one handy playlist, available below. This time round, rising rapper Corella tops the list, with new additions from Tion Wayne, Gucci Mane, Krept and Konan, and K-Trap.
