Killavesi, D’Angelo, Bladee and more added to Dummy’s NEXT HYPE playlist


Plus new music from Chaka Khan, DeJ Loaf, 21 Savage and more...

The tree’s been de-baubled and our office advent calendars binned; it’s the worst week of the year! To make matters worse, it’s a slow time for the music industry, when most artists refrain from dropping any new music. That’s not stopped us from digging for #veryrare musical treats – from Bad Bunny’s surprise Christmas Eve album drop to picks from LuckyMe’s coveted yearly advent calendar.

Elsewhere on the site, we ran down our top 50 tracks of the year, our top 25 albums of the year, our 10 best labels of the year and the 8 artists to keep an eye on in 2019, as tipped by some choice tastemakers.

We also spoke to the MC behind one of the best grime releases of the year, Peckham’s prodigal son Maxsta, as well as the teen Kimi rap freshmen on the brink of breakout success – Church & AP.
