After more than 2 years since the release of his debut album Lonely Are The Brave, Irish singer-songwriter Maverick Sabre has at last returned with 'Breathe', the first track to be lifted from his, as of yet untitled, sophmore effort. Although those who caught his recent collaboration with Joey Bada$$ 'My Yout', put out late last year, will know Sabre hasn't been completely resting on his laurels, if anyone feared the Irish crooner's prolonged absense may have left him a little out of practice the incredible 'Breathe' will soon set them straight. Maverick - welcome back.

Ever since Michael Jackson released 'Thriller' music videos have represented an additional platform through which artists can put themselves out there. One artist who seems to understand that is Son of Kick, whose latest video, directed by Nicolas Andre, is memorable to say the least. Check out the full visuals to 'Hours' below. Not many artists can claim their music videos are as experimental as their music, Son of Kick can.
'Stealing My Older Brother's Tapes' might be the best EP title of all-time, and the music isn't too shabby either. Goldie, Underworld and Prodigy mixed with UK Rap - Context has created his own lane, and a whole new genre. Get your copy below, for free.
One of the most refreshing pieces of Rap music for a long time - simple as that, really. Keep your eyes out for this man in 2014.
Official video for the latest single from Fem Fel, which is Produced By Jason and is taken from his 'Left of Centre' EP. Available now on Invader Records.
The Murkage boys team up with fellow Mancunian Bipolar Sunshine for their new single 'La Plage', which as always spans across a wide variety genres, to create a fresh forward-thinking sound. My favourite Murkage track to date, with a big video to follow.
Played on Radio 1 this week as Zane Lowe's next hype, here is the new one from Fem Fel, which features the wonderful Fiona Bevan and is taken from Fem's forthcoming EP on Invader Records. Love this, lots and lots.
Although he has made some awful music over the years, you can't deny that Nelly is one US rapper that likes to pushing the boundaries, and the fact that he's called on upcoming Manchester-born singer/songwriter Daley for his new single is the perfect example of that. Hit single for sure and the perfect opportunity for Daley to spread his wings like we all know he can.
