Yes, yes peeps.  It’s time for another dose of reload-worthy releases from the world of 140bpm. If you’re after something a little different from our usual output, we’ve rounded up a selection of what we feel needs another spin. Check it…

Stormzy – Big For Your Boots

Big Mike’s back. The world’s been waiting on his debut album forever and suddenly, it’s on the horizon. He’s announced that Gang Signs & Prayer will be released on the 24th and to celebrate that, he’s released the first single. Featuring a heap of cameos, Big For Your Boots is a triumphant return to the scene.

Jammz – Know Yourself

This tune’s been getting rinsed over the last week or so. Jammz takes Westy’s hypnotic beat and goes fully in; pure, unadulterated fire! Enjoy

Ghetts ft Shakka – Know My Ting

Ghetts seems to have the innate ability to effortlessly switch styles and sounds and never sound out of place. Couple him with one of the country’s most versatile vocalists and you’re guaranteed a banger…

AJ Tracey – Luke Cage

One of the best things to have hit Netflix last year, Luke Cage was dripping in hip hop culture and would naturally inspire a range of artists.  My personal favourite from his recent Lil Tracey EP, AJ’s made the trip across the pond to give his track the NY treatment.

Capo Lee & Sir Spyro – Stop Talk

Another star of the current wave, Capo & Spyro build on their recent monster Mud by dropping the lead single from their upcoming Stop Talk EP, which is due to land at the end of the month. The glitchy, raw vibe is matched by the equally sharp visuals and has us looking forward to catching the rest of the project

Solo 45 ft Stormzy – 5ive

It’s hard to best describe this one – it’s a bit erratic but that’s what seems to make it work. Solo’s on energy overdrive and the chorus chanting is nothing short of frantic. Throw in a big 16-bar ‘interlude’ from Stormzy and you’re sort of left thinking ‘what’s just happened..?’

Davinche, Big Tobz, TE dness, Blitz & Izzie Gibbs – Ring Ring

Alongside the brilliant New Gen compilation, the recently released #POWERS project has showcased how fruitful the scene is at the moment. Produced entirely by Davinche and featuring a whole host of names, the latest to get the visual treatment is bouncy Ring Ring. You’ll want to turn this up…

Lorenzo BITW ft Kwam – Goo

This one’s a complete mash-up of styles and sounds. Italian producer Lorenzo BITW has teamed up with Kwam for the infectious Goo. It ticks so many different boxes and Kwam’s skippy flow matches the multiple switches bar-for-bar…

Devlin ft Maverick Sabre – Blow Your Mind

After a lengthy absence, Devlin’s set to drop his new album The Devil In tomorrow.  He’s recently dropped visuals for the second single. Featuring a haunting chorus from Maverick Sabre, Devz shows his trigger-tongue hasn’t lost it’s edge; just check the second verse…

Mic Ty – Wots Bars?

The Newham native’s back with a bang. Big beat, even bigger bars; Ty goes in…

A2 – Lowest Key

Taken from his More Sleep 2 EP, we’re feeling the kick-back mood of Lowest Key. A2’s flow floats over the beat nicely and creates a stellar track to just vibe-out to.

Stefflon Don ft Giggs – Real Ting (Remix)

The title track from her recent project’s been given the remix treatment. Wrapping things up this time around, Stefflon Don’s enlisted Mr SN1 to bless Rymez’ head nodder with his trademark greaze. Ooooff
