This week’s hottest new sounds…
SKEPTA, CHIP & YOUNG ADZ
Trust Skepta to surprise everyone with a new album. This LP was made with Chip and D-Block Europe’s Young Adz, and is a muscular illustration of music’s power to spread positivity.

As The Sun Sets (Domino)

Contact Dan Carson
LOUS & THE YAKUZA
Congolese pop sorcerer Lous & The Yakuza had a streaming hit with Dilemme and this shifting El Guincho-produced new one is further proof of her magical powers.
Contact Taponeswa Mavunga
Joy (Get Over Me) (From Concentrate)
