Kojo Funds (feat. Raye)

Avelino (feat. Dave)
U Can Stand Up (More Music/Odd Child Music)

A powerful story of the long road to stardom from Tottenham MC Avelino, with a lean and precise verse from Dave. It’s a banger.

Let’s Eat Grandma
Hot Pink (Transgressive)

The teenage duo make a juddering, neon-bright return with Hot Pink, produced by Transgressive labelmate Sophie. It’ll tie you in knots.

Octavian (feat. Sam Wise)
100 Degrees (Drilla Records)

The South London rapper follows his Drake-approved breakout Party Here with an eerie, stoned-out jam in which he sounds half asleep.

The Damned
Standing On The Edge Of Tomorrow (Destroy/Spinefarm)

The Damned’s first new track in 10 years quickens the pulse with rapid bass, and Dave Vanian’s restless vocal. New LP Evil Spirits is out April 13.
