CARIBOU - Home

After a five year hiatus under his Caribou moniker, Dan Snaith returns with a stunning piece of music entitled 'Home'. Sampling the amazing Gloria Barnes, he says: "I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me – it’s too perfect. That’s how it was with Gloria Barnes’ ‘Home’ – I kept returning to it, meaning to do something with it but not knowing what. It wasn’t until the circumstances of someone close to me mirrored the refrain of the original song that the track all came together.” Gloria only ever released one album called 'Uptown', which is super rare and currently going for £2,000 on Discogs. Amazing music never grows old... This is a dope refresh, make sure you check out Illa J's version from 2017.

Mayer Hawthorne - The Great Divide

A killer new single from soul / R&B crooner Mayer Hawthorne, whose unique style and sound has continued to fascinate me over the years. The downtempo blues vibe on the production on 'The Great Divide' works perfectly alongside Mayer's amazing vocal performance, creating a modern twist on old skool sound. Love it, stream here.

The Vision - Heaven (Feat. Andreya Triana)

The Vision is a brand new project from UK-born Ben Westbeech and Boston native KON, both of whom have had illustrious careers of their own over the past two decades. Ben as a singer, songwriter and producer whose music I have loved and supported heavily over the past 10 years, and KON as the disco-house edit master, an amazing turntablist and the oracle of hip-hop. Together, their aim is to deliver “honest, soulful music with depth” on their debut album that is set to drop early next year. The lead single is 'Heaven', undoubtedly one of the finest house records of the past 10 years - and I don't say that lightly. The production is a masterpiece from start to finish, Andreya (and Dames Brown) sound stunning and most importantly the vibe of the record does exactly what house music is supposed to do, make people DANCE! When you see this get dropped in a club, you really understand why it's so special. Buy, stream, download - here.

JGrrey - Better Off

'Better Off' is the new single from upcoming singer / songwriter JGrrey, who strikes me as a cross between Lily Allen and Jorja Smith, but with her own dope style. Check out her debut performance of this record on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury. Star in the making.
