Bass heavy Dancehall vibes from the Fulldose Fam. MC I Jahbar spitting flames on this and chatting about Glasgow makes it extra special :)

4. Jarren - Al Gusto (Apron Records)

4. Jarren - Al Gusto (Apron Records)

Apron records can also do no wrong with everything they put out but this super slick g funk - house track is the big track from their latest label compilation.

5. Omar S - Hard Times

5. Omar S - Hard Times

Future Classic! Vocals sound great and the hook is very infectious. Incredibly minimal production over a funky as hell bassline.

6. HiTech - Détwat

6. HiTech - Détwat

I was late to the party with this one but this is probably my favorite release of the year! Modern Rap meets lofi ghettotech with tons of catchy hooks and r&b chord progressions. This one will be a standout record for years to come!

7. Mom’s Spaghetti Vol 4

Another shameless plug of my own productions / record label. Mom’s Spaghetti Vol 4 is jam packed with club ready edit bangers with a strong focus on Hip Hop for this edition…

9. JPEGMAFIA x Danny Brown - Scaring The Hoes

9. JPEGMAFIA x Danny Brown - Scaring The Hoes

A wildly chaotic rap album by two of the best rappers out there but also one of the most exciting records this year in any genre of music! Peggy's music production is out of this world. Literally! <3

10. Steven Julien G-Out (Apron)

10. Steven Julien G-Out (Apron)

The Funk/Jazz Fusion master returns! With only one track this year but what a track it is! Dirty South / 303 Trap madness with some super slick jazzy chords on top. Top tier bizness!
