Summer is here to stay and we’ve got one of the biggest line ups packed to the brim with music to keep you going late into the night.
No more messing around, get your ears locked in to these new tracks.
Slaves and Krept X Konan lay down ‘Told You/The Hunter’
Double whammy! Or should we say triple? Label buddies and Reading and Leeds performer pals have laid down this fresh new track in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Speaking about the collaboration Konan said: “We are performing at a few of the same festivals this summer, so yeah it would be cool if we could perform this to a crowd”.
Sigrid drops the last track off her ‘Raw’ EP
And it might just be the catchiest one yet. ‘Schedules’ is the perfect pop bop that’s guaranteed to get your foot tapping and be stuck in your head for days to come.
AJ Tracey’s 3am is already a top contender for the summer anthem of 2018
AJ’s just brought the vibes by the truckload in ‘3am’ – give him any beat and he’ll spit the coldest bars over the top. Pass us the paddling pool, this is a banger.
Someone needs to tell Diplo about sunglasses
Linking up with one of his favourites MØ, Diplo just gifted us with the lyric video for ‘Sun In Our Eyes’ – surely he knows about sunglasses by now. Diplo is really just out there producing bop after bop, isn’t he?
Easy Life release the smooth indie sounds of ‘Frank’ and ‘OJPL’
Leicester-band band Easy Life will fast become your favourite new act after listening to these two new songs. Premiered on BBC Radio 1, you know you’re going to be on to a good thing.
Brockhampton bless us with one of the best hooks of 2018
‘1999 Wildfire’ is like nothing Brockhampton have done before. This is an R&B-twinged throwback that shows off every members’ talents.
Bad Sounds release some very, very good 11/10 sounds
‘Couldn’t Give It Away’ was given its first spin by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 and was described as ‘the band’s most personal track to date’. Taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Get Better’ this deals with loss and the grieving period – but don’t let that put a downer on it, this is going to go off at Reading and Leeds this year.
Bexey featuring $UICIDEBOY$ needs to be on your radar
London’s very own, Bexey delivers a demonic new visual for ‘CUTTHROAT SMILE’ featuring $UICIDEBOY$. The track, which he’s been teasing since April definitely doesn’t disappoint.
Want to line up the best weekend of your life? There’s only one guaranteed method to ensure positive vibes for the rest of the year – that’s your Reading Festival tickets in the bag.
Sort yourself out (and your friends if you’re feeling generous)
