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. Here is the Week In Beats.
Dave – 100M’s
“Known from Natwest to Santander, said you wanna pree us like I’m driving an Uber”. Yes Dave. The most multi talented MC to surface for a long, long time.
Flamingods – Kewali
Another heater from the Flamingods boys, their grunge inflected sounds can be heard live at the Jazz Cafe in October.
Daphni – Face to Face
The multi talented Dan Snaith returns to his Daphni alias for another slice of dancefloor pie. Keeping things fairly simple on Face to Face, the track is only really built with drums, bass and a faint vocal sample but you could still imagine Snaith’s mathematical precision when putting all of the elements in place.
Glowing Palms – Kiki
Rüf Kutz associate Glowing Palms goes full tribal on Kiki, the newest release to come from the fast rising Blip Discs imprint. Soft pads are countered by a chugging breakbeat halfway through which reappear towards the end – a humorous little nugget of dancefloor fare.
Vince Staples – Big Fish
Any time Vince Staples releases a new track it’s near certain that it’ll be included in our weekly round up. What’s so disarming about him is how easy he makes his verses sound, and without swearing too.
Jehst – 44th Floor
When you think of UK hip-hop, by default the first name on your mind will inevitably be Jehst. Having reigned at the top of the tree for a good few years, his lyrics always satisfy as we hear again on 44th Floor.
