We’ve just updated our weekly-refreshed NEXT HYPE playlist, adding new heat from Bladee, Chaka Khan, kadiata and more.
In the world of music, it’s been a good week for women, who won big at the Grammy Awards, while the 100 Club’s decision to stop posting set times riled up some gig-goers. There was also the news of Girl Unit’s long-awaited return, as well as 21 Savage giving his first interview since his arrest.
Elsewhere on Dummy, self-confessed FIFA addict AJ Tracey gave us his favourite tracks to hammer his XBox controller to, while Frankie Knuckles’ longtime Directors Cut collaborator listed his favourite cuts by the late legend. Soda Plains handed in an incredibly melodic, club-facing mix, while LA and NTS mainstay Mia Carucci slipped us a copy of her caramel-smooth ‘She’s Emotional‘ mixtape as a Valentine’s Day gift. Over the week we premiered an intimate video of FaceTime recordings from Etta Bond and two new cuts by Skepta collaborator Daisy Maybe, and posted great music from the dream team that is Modeselektor and Tommy Cash, Peckham newcomer Tallulah and more.
