LUPE FIASCO - "DRILL MUSIC IN ZION"

After being announced in August last year, Lupe Fiasco’s long-awaited album, “Drill Music in Zion”, is given a release. The 10-track project represents Lupe’s ability to deliver spontaneous creativity, with the album completed in 72 hours with the help of longstanding collaborator Soundtrakk.

PAN AMSTERDAM & DAMU THE FUDGEMUNK - "EAT"

With Pan Amsterdam’s latest album, “EAT”, the experimental rapper partners with fellow Def Pressé producer Damu The Fudgemunk. The 14-track project, which is centred around culinary themes, showcases the underground sound favoured by both artists.

RON TRENT - "WHAT DO THE STARS SAY TO YOU"

Ron Trent has spent decades crafting deep, texture-rich music — a passion that has led him to explore beyond the limitations of the dancefloor, delving into an array of sounds from a broad spectrum. His latest album, “What Do the Stars Say to You”, encapsulates that approach perfectly, with a relaxing, meticulous blend of house, disco, jazz and ambient.

GORILLAZ FEAT. THUNDERCAT - "CRACKER ISLAND"

Gorillaz partner with bassist and vocalist Thundercat with “Cracker Island”: an energetic, funk-inflected track centred around cults and stan culture. Damon Albarn and Thundercat combine their vocals throughout the release, as well as their depth of musicality and instrumentalism.

JACQUES GREENE - "RELAY"

Following on from “Fantasy” that released earlier in the year, Jacques Greene revisits a key track from the EP, “Relay”. The reworked, club-tested edit is released alongside an extended, experimental remix from Munich-based producer Skee Mask.
