Stray – Since You’ve Been Gone

DnB pioneer puts out a free mixtape of unreleased hip-hop beats. I wish he’d make more in this genre because some of the tracks on here are absolutely nuts.

Wara From The NBHD – Kidnapped

Hard as nails hip-hop.

Wiley – Snakes & Ladders

Grime legend returns to what he does best. I expected massive buzz around this but it seems to have gone relatively unnoticed. It’s amazing to hear such a veteran coming back to what made him the legend he is, hopefully Dizzee will follow suit.

X – The Houston Museum Of Natural Science

Seriously laid back and gritty jazz beats fit superbly with X’s mellow flow. There is something special about this, I cant put my finger on what it is but it’s a real pleasure to listen to.
