The Music Week Playlist: October 16, 2017

Giggs (feat. Dave)
Peligro (No BS Music/Island)

This echo-laden cut from new
13-song mixtape Wamp 2 Dem finds Giggs at his imposing best. In amongst all the heaviness and murk is a nimble verse from Dave. Moody as.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
Holy Mountain (Sour Mash)

Anything Liam can do… Noel’s comeback is a fuzzy riot that’s drawn comparisons to Ricky Martin. The purists may raise an eyebrow.

Contact Fiona Raisbeck

Craig David
For The Gram

If anyone can draw on Instagram for inspiration it’s Craig David, whose account is a reliable source of positive energy. Much like this new single.

Contact Laura Sinclair

Salute (FEAT. GABRIELLe aplin)
That Girl (37 Adventures)

The Vienna-born producer follows streaming smash Light Up with something aimed at the heart and the hips. Its huge synths will hit both.

Contact Nic Bestley

AJ Tracey
Quarterback (Secure The Bag!) (My Team Paid)

AJ Tracey peacocks over a simple piano motif on this highlight from his just-dropped Secure The Bag! EP. He’s still going places.

Contact Rachel Campbell

US Girls
Mad As Hell (4AD)

Meg Remy is back with a disco banger, carefully layering bass, percussion and freaky backing vocals into a vibrant, towering wall of sound.

Contact Annette Lee

PartyNextDoor (feat. Halsey)
Damage (OVO Sound/Parlophone)

A pop hook up where the stars align just right. The Canadian producer and the New Jersey singer have a ball trying to out-cool one another.
