Production duo Take A Daytrip — made up of David Biral and Denzel Baptiste — have released a new song called “Lighthouse,” which sadly is not a theme song for the horror movie The Lighthouse. But the song does boast verses from Rico Nasty, Slowthai, and the LA rapper ICECOLDBISHOP, so that’s a … More »
Today Annie Mac announced the first phase of the 2020 lineup for her annual Maltese festival, Lost & Found. As always, dozens of Annie’s old friends including Eats Everything, Denis Sulta and Mella Dee are set to appear along with exciting newcomers like Slowthai and Helena Hauff.
Annie Mac is, unequivocally, one of the most respected human beings in music. When people look at all her endeavours; from her new podcast ‘Finding Annie’ to her ‘Annie Mac Presents’ event series and of course her nightly radio show on BBC Radio 1, what they know beyond a reasonable doubt is that she has earned the right to essentially do anything she wants in music.
What makes her so notable though is that this respect doesn’t come from her productions (of which she has none) or even her DJ sets. It comes from her impeccable and inimitable taste in music. Making a name for herself on the radio, picking tracks to get people through a portion of their day, her knack for curation is renowned, and over the past few years, she has extended that knack to live event curation in fine style.
View the full phase one roster for Lost & Found below. Tickets for AMP Lost & Found go on general sale at 10am GMT Friday 15th November.
Mura Masa and slowthai have proven again their formidable appeal as a producer-vocalist ensemble, linking up for the second time to say “Deal Wiv It,” another cheeky nuanced number, following last year’s “Doorman,” which appeared on slowthai’s Nothing Great About Britain LP.
“Deal Wiv It” packs melodic jaunts and bass struts, equal parts Talking Heads and The Clash, alongside slowthai’s painstakingly British, punky irreverence: “They say, ‘You’ve changed,’ / Fucking deal wiv it.”
Mura Masa’s next album, R.Y.C., is expected at the turn of 2020. The Grammy-winning “Walking Away” remixer recently collaborated with Clairo on “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again,” expected to appear on the official tracklist for the forthcoming LP. The new single arrives alongside a coinciding visual, starring both “Deal Wiv It” creators.
So far we’ve heard two songs from Mura Masa’s upcoming album R.Y.C., which stands for Raw Youth Collage. Clairo handled lead vocals on the phenomenal lead single “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again,” while Mura Masa himself grabbed the mic on “No Hope Generation.” Today, we get to hear … More »

The young British rapper Slowthai, aka Tyron Kaymone Frampton, has taken his country by storm with incendiary political rhetoric and equally fiery live shows. His album Nothing Great About Britain is up for the Mercury Prize, handed out annually to the UK and Ireland’s best album, and at the ceremony tonight he left … More »
Slowthai and Denzel Curry have different strains of chaotic energy running through their music. Today, they intersected on the Miami rapper and UK artist’s new collaborative track “Psycho.” It’s truly something to behold, as they trade verses over chopped up horror movie violin screeches, courtesy of English producer Kwes Darko.
