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.
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.
