01. King Krule – 'Dum Surfer'


King Krule has dropped the second track from his upcoming sophomore album The Ooz and released a surreal zombie clip to go with it. ‘Dum Surfer’ follows lead single ‘Czech One’ as the first new King Krule music since 2013’s stellar debut 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. While we’ve had various side projects in the meantime we’re definitely ready for a full-size King Krule release, meaning October 13 can’t come fast enough.

02. UV Boi – 'Returned Alone EP'


Australian producer UV Boi has released his second EP Returned Alone just 18 months since his debut EP L-UV. Already heralded as one of Australia’s most promising producers the newest EP adds to the rising star’s already stellar body of work. On Returned Alone you’ll find lush vocals, dreamy synths, and trip-hop nods meshed together perfectly. In even more exciting news for fans, you’ll be able to see all of the new tracks in person when UV Boi heads out on a national tour from tomorrow.

03. Gucci Mane – 'Curve' ft. The Weeknd


Gucci Mane is extremely busy making 2017 his year. He’s currently on a book tour, just announced a sneaker collab with Reebok, and is still dropping new tracks while he’s at it. ‘Curve’ is the latest from Gucci and comes with a feature from The Weeknd. At just 2:40 it’s a short lived track, but what do you expect when Mane’s this busy.

04. Steve Lacy – '4real'


Steve Lacy is only 19 years old and is already killing it. He’s a member of The Internet but also has production credits for people like Kendrick Lamar and Goldlink to his name. Earlier this year he dropped a solo project Steve Lacy’s Demo and now has followed up with new track ‘4real’.

05. The Goods – 'Glow'


Sydney-based funk-soul-pop band The Goods have released single ‘The Glow’ off their forthcoming EP Make Your Move, due later this year. It’s a smooth and cruisey funked out track that’ll wet your appetite while you wait for their EP.


06. LUCIANBLOMKAMP – 'Still No' ft. Trim


Melbourne-based producer LUCIANBLOMKAMP enlisted UK rapper Trim for his new track, the second off his forthcoming release Sick of What I Don’t Understand. ‘Still No’ ramps up the mood and drags you through with unexpected speed. It showcases the wide-range of LUCIANBLOMKAMP’s talents and makes it easy to see why he’s been busy working with international artists like 6lack.
