Mumdance x Novelist: Shook

Grime producer and Lewisham lyricist team up once again..

17 year-old south London rhymer Novelist is the name on everyone's lips for 2015.

Having already worked together on the track 'Take Time', Mumdance and Nov join forces once more for the forthcoming EP, '1 Sec'.

The futuristically grimy 'Shook' is the first track to be heard from the EP, which is out 20 January.

Nas: World Is Yours (Acapella)

Nasir drops classic track acapella...

Sony paid Nas to rhyme 'The World is Yours' shot on a special MVR camera or whatever. The important thing though is that this is weirdly compelling. If you know 'Illmatic' you'll definitely be rhyming alongside God's Son as he effortlessly spits bars in his unique smoke-choked flow.


Dizzee Rascal: Pagans

The return of the Raskitt...

He's been known to veer more to the dance side of life over the last few years, but with the re-emergence of Grime in 2014, it's exciting to see Dizzee Rascal return to the scene with 'Pagans', which premiered today on Noisey.

Featuring an incredible 'Monkey Magic' style video, 'Pagans' is produced by Newham General's Footsie and gets a big massive thumbs up from us.

Lorde: Yellow Flicker Beat (Kanye Reworking)

Yeezy gets his hands on Lorde's Mockingjay theme...

It had its world premiere last night (we were there and it was AWESOME). A big part of the 'Hunger Games' is also the accompanying soundtrack, which has outdone itself this time round.

Enlisting Lorde to curate the music, the 17 year-old New Zealander has created a soundtrack to accompany Katniss on the latest instalment of her journey, which includes Major Lazer, The Chemical Brothers and Pusha T.

And now Kanye has decided to get involved. The rapper and producer has reworked Lorde's 'Yellow Flicker Beat', titled 'Flicker'.

Listen below and get ready for 'The Hunger Games The Mockingjay: Part 1' when it drops next week. It's really, really awesome.

Stormzy Ft Shorty, Narstie, JME, P Money: Not That Deep (remix)

"You're not bad, your area is..."

East meets North and South on this all-star remix from Stormzy, the man behind one of Grime's biggest anthems this year, produced by Heavytrackerz.

Premiered on Charlie Sloth last night, it's tough to call who takes the best verse; you have some serious MCs on this remix. JME's clarity and turn of phrase is always a winner. But then you have Narstie's awesome gaseous bars too.

Listen for yourself and decide...

Tourist Ft. Years & Years: Illuminate

South London producer drops a big old banger...

As 'previously reported', we think Tourist is rather great.

The South London born producer is fast becoming one of the most interesting sonic-shifters in the South East with releases including this and this

Brand new tune 'Illuminate' steps up the pace and makes a bold statement with its bad self. Featuring Olly Alexander from Years & Years on vocals, the song propels from slow burner to heart-wrenching epically wonderful chorus sung in heavenly tones by Alexander.

Love, Love. Love.
