The internet can be a daunting place at the best of times, and when it comes to music there’s a never ending rabbit hole of mixes, remixes, tracks, mixtapes and videos being uploaded on the daily. It’s physically impossible to be able to digest everything that is throw into the public consciousness, so we’ve taken time out to handpick the six freshest beats we’ve heard this week to make your life a bit easier. Kick back and enjoy them over the weekend.
Death Grips – Eh
Our favourite weirdos Death Grips return with the glorious mess that is Eh. Not many of the lyrics are fully decipherable but the raw energy that they’ve always possessed certainly still remains.
Aesop Rock – Syrup Feat. Homeboy Sandman & Open Mike Eagle
Three of alternative rap’s finest come together. Leagues ahead of Odd Future’s pretenders, Aesop Rock, Homeboy Sandman and Open Mike Eagle each take turns to spit fire over the crystalline beat on Syrup, a bonus track from Aesop’s new album The Impossible Kid, available for free download here.
Lianne La Havas – Lost & Found (Matthew Herbert Remix)
It’s quite strange that a remix has appeared of a track originally released four years ago, but when Matthew Herbert and DJ Koze are involved you can kind of give them a free pass. Herbert’s reworking of Lianne La Havas’ Lost & Found, released on the new Pampa Vol. 1 compilation, keeps it simple adding a melodic house beat and booming bassline to the proceedings.
Chaos In The CBD – Global Erosion
Jazzy house grooves have been slowly proliferating out of south London for the last couple of years, and Kiwi duo Chaos in the CBD are the latest duo to make a name for themselves. Originally releasing through Rhythm Section, their new track on YAM Records is a trumpet led summer pumper with grooves for days.
Post Malone – Go Flex
The crooner from the Big Apple has scarcely put a foot wrong since breaking onto the scene with the anthemic White Iverson last year. He once again hits the jackpot on Go Flex, an acoustic-led, stripped down trap ballad. Sound a bit weird? What did you expect from a white guys with cornrows and gold grills?
Swift (Section Boyz) – Eye For Eye 2
