The internet is 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.
Yogi – SIRI Feat. Elliphant & Pusha T
Following in the future hip-hop footsteps of their first collab Burial, LA-based UK producer Yogi has reunited with Pusha T and recruited Swedish alt hip-hop artist Elliphant for his latest single Siri, out on Skrillex’s OWSLA. The track was debuted by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 as his “World Record” along with an interview with Yogi in which he talks about his upcoming work with A$AP Ferg, Tinashe and more.
Jeremih – oui
Since Jeremih reinvented himself with his Late Nights tape in 2012, the r’n’b crooner has gone on to become the most inventive singer in the game with hits coming out of his ears. oiu is the next track to come from him and it’s all that we’ve come to expect; vocals that are smoother than Nutella, lyrics with a whiff of cheese and delicate trap production to match.
Congo Natty – Revolution In Dub (DJ Madd Remix)
Coming out on Big Dada’s remix package Jungle Revolution in Dub, DJ Madd’s reworking of Congo Natty’s Revolution in Dub is a half time stomper that doesn’t try to do too much to the original. It keeps plenty of its dub weight while adding that dubstep swing that you can’t help but furiously nod your head to.
Mo Kolours – Foundation
We’ve been big fans of Mo Kolours for a while at Bonafide, and he was one of the subjects of a label feature in our recent print issue. His delicate afro-influenced songwriting has reared its head again on free-to-download album Texture Like Sun – Foundation is an early highlight of the release, typifying Mo’s excellent songwriting ability, and cramming it all into a 2 minute track.
Freddie Gibbs – Fuckin’ Up The Count
Strangely underrated, Freddie Gibbs’ gangster tip has been put on hold for a minute while he concentrated on being a father but he returns with the reflective Fuckin’ Up The Count, taken from the forthcoming Shadow Of A Doubt. Following the excellent Piñata last year is there another modern day classic on the horizon?
Rustie – Peace Upzzz
Out of nowhere, Rustie has released his new record EVENIFUDONTBELIEVE. Not one for the faint of heart, Peace Upzzz sees our Scottish man on typically hyperactive form, plunging us into an 8-bit fantasy world that is full of sugar rushes and buzzing synths before exploding into life at around the 2 minute mark.
