The Music Week Playlist: May 28, 2018

Silk City
Only Can Get Better (Columbia)

Diplo and Mark Ronson have teamed-up. Named after an old Philly DJ haunt, Silk City’s debut is a Daniel Merriweather-fronted mix of head-rush beats and urgent electronics. Silky skills.

Anderson Paak
Bubblin (Aftermath)

Scuffed-up matinee idol strings, solid beats and gritty flows mesh as Paak warms-up for a second album that he says Dr Dre is helping him make.

Contact: Imran Malik

Mazzy Star
So, Tonight That I Might See (Ascension)  (InGrooves)

Newly made for the forthcoming Still EP, this is a glowering, organ-driven reconstruction of the scrawling, talky title track from the pair’s second album.

Nine Inch Nails
God Break Down The Door (The Null Corporation)

Driven by smoky jazz saxophones and chemicals beats, Trent Reznor spells out the experimental nature of forthcoming collection, Bad Witch.

Jennifer Lopez Feat. Cardi B & DJ Khaled
Dinero (Epic)

A chopped-up, digital tango laced with the hottest possible collaborators on the planet right now, J Lo returns with some very sharp moves indeed.

Heaven On Earth (Virgin EMI)

Perky, squidgy and very catchy fuzz rock from the Nick Cave-anointed Limerick trio as they make their debut for new label Virgin EMI.

Big Shaq
Man Don’t Dance (Island Records)

Michael Dapaah upgrades the skittish charms of Big Shaq with some big, doomy chimes. As you’d probably guess, it’s pretty dancefloor friendly.
