We’ve just updated our weekly-refreshed NEXT HYPE playlist, with new additions from Kojey Radical, KISH!, Murlo and many more.
Over the past week on Dummy, MOVES A&R Ian McQuaid looked into the news of his signees Skengdo x AM being handed prison sentences for performing their songs, and the long history of censorship of black music in Britain. We went to see the controversy-ridden Azealia Banks smashing one of her London headline shows, and spoke to one of Russia’s most exciting electronic artists, Buttechno, about the difficulties facing club spaces in his native Moscow.
We asked Ilian Tape’s Zenker Brothers to put together a list of the best 24-hour party tracks, ahead of their FOLD takeover, while legendary D&B icon Fabio compiled his all-time favourite liquid cuts. We premiered great new music from the likes of new Dirty Hit collective 404, a video portraying Instagram self-love by Joel Eel, jazz drumming from CID RIM, grime excellence from Skelecta, and forward-thinking steely dancehall from Montreal producer SIM, while Morgan Hislop made us the ideal mix to complete your taxes to.
