Hip Hop artist, Latnie, drops his first song of 2021 titled “Digital Money.” It was released worldwide through Gvng Music Distro. He’s on the hunt for financial freedom which is made clear on this track.
The song is produced by Kristian Delay and myself. Give this one a listen and let us know what you think.
Vistas – Stuck In Your Head
Scottish band, Vistas, releases “Stuck In Your Head.” I love the lyrics and how they hit a piece of the human experience so directly. Sometimes, we have to get out of our own heads and go for it in life.
CLOVES – Nightmare
London-based Aussie artist, CLOVES, releases “Nightmare.” The Hudson Mohawke and Detonate-produced song is dark and haunting. They compliment artist’s vocals so well.
“‘Nightmare’ is about being gaslit by your own brain,” says CLOVES. “I think a lot of the time when people talk about gaslighting they are touching on how it feels to be manipulated by others; I wanted ‘Nightmare’ to represent how it feels to be getting that same kind of toxicity from conversations with yourself.”
CLOVES will release her sophomore album Nightmare on Elmfield Road on May 21.
Double AA, Denise De’ion, Sonya Teclai – Good Shhh
Producer Double AA brings us that “Good Shhh” with Denise De’ion and Sonya Teclai. This joint is confident. The ladies ride the beat well. It’s a great mix of sounds that give us a track that isn’t a typical copy of what’s out and is an appreciated vibe worth blasting through your speakers. Check out this Gvng Music Distro release today.
Jessie Ware – Please
This is a vibe! Jessie Ware’s “Please” makes you want to dance.
Via press release, Jessie states, “I had such an amazing response to the What’s Your Pleasure? record that I didn’t want the lights to go up and the party to be over just yet! ‘Please’ is full of optimism and ready to be played in a place where we can all be together and flirt, dance, touch and kiss. A wonderful excuse not to stop the party from ending.”
Have some fun and press play on this one.
Burna Boy – Kilometre
Burna Boy‘s first solo song of 2021cis here. “Kilometre” is a party-ready track produced by Chopstix.

21 Savage – Spiral
The Saw movie series theme music gets a flip on 21 Savage’s Spiral. This is creepy in a great way. It fits 21 really well. Shoutout to Kid Hazel on production.
