Loyle Carner. On earlier work like 2015's 'A Little Late' and cameo's on friends' projects (Tom Misch's 'Crazy Dream') the youngster showed lots of promise, and I'm very glad to see he continues to deliver on his official debut. As a rap album, 'Yesterday's Gone' is quite refreshing: it shows Carner as an open and honest artist who isn't afraid to publicly share his doubts and worries ('The Isle of Arran', 'The Seamstress'), nor does he shy away from showing his emotional side when talking about friends and family ('Florence', 'Sun of Jean') - a rare feat for young emcees. This very personal approach also pays off on tracks like 'Ain't Nothing Changed', 'No Worries' or 'No CD', where Carner manages to be both witty and humble. Everything about this album makes you feel the young Croydon-native is wise beyond his years; no doubt we'll see plenty more of this cat in the future... Give 'Yesterday's Gone' a listen below, enjoy!

Knowsum's excellent new 'Play God and Shit Happens'-LP - available at Money $ex... Enjoy!
London-based producer and DJ Eric Lau returns to surface with 'Examples', his first release for First Word - home to boundary-crossing artists like Tall Black Guy, Bastien Keb, Kidkanevil, Ross McHenry and many others. Needless to say Lau - known for workin' with and producin' for the likes of Guilty Simpson, Hawk House, Homeboy Sandman, Yussef Kamaal and countless others - fits perfectly into First Word's impressive roster with his undeniable talent for melding the best elements of soul, jazz and funk into smooth grooves and breathtaking instrumentals. Featuring a whopping 28 - mostly short, but oh so sweet - tracks, 'Examples' gives Lau the perfect opportunity to showcase his craft. From smooth and jazzy but drum-heavy tracks ('Circles', 'It's Rainy', 'Lau's Lament', 'Open Up') over spinesnappin' heavy hitters ('RAHW', 'De La') to Brazil-inspired gems ('Bas', 'It's Okay', Masamba'): Lau doesn't discriminate in his quest for dopeness. I'm really grateful this talented cat took time out of his busy schedule lending his skills to other artists to expand his own body of work. Do yourself a favour and give 'Examples' a listen below, or order your copy via iTunes or bandcamp... Enjoy!
