RIOT Release Radar: #114

Baby Keem & Kendrick Lamar // The Hillbillies
Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar add to their tasty canon of collaborative tracks with ‘The Hillbillies’. Look out for a Tyler, The Creator cameo in the video, in which the IGOR rapper teases the return of his Camp Flog Gnaw festival .

Grian Chatten // Last Time Every Time Forever
Grian has shared the hauntingly minimalist ‘Last Time Every Time Forever’, accompanied by a charming lyric video. The Fontaines’ frontman releases his debut solo album at the end of the month

Mura Masa // Drugs
Mura Masa enlists Peruvian riser Daniela Lalita as he continues his delightful Y2K-isms with ‘Drugs’, via his own Pond Recordings label. 2023 has been a decent one for Masa; the producer shook the global zeitgeist with his turn on the faders for Ice Spice’s ‘Boys a Liar Pt. 2’.

Alaska Reid // Palomino
Alaska Reid’s debut album – Disenchanter – arrives next month, featuring PC Music’s A.G Cook on production. ‘Palomino’ serves sunny Americana melodies with a peppering of glitchy 80s synth.

Tapir! // On A Grassy Knoll (We’ll Bow Together)
London 6-piece Tapir! have announced their deal with Heavenly Recordings with a full rollout for for 2022 single ‘On A Grassy Knoll (We’ll Bow Together)’ and its accompanying The Pilgrim EP. Tapir! Have been killing it on the peripheries for a hot minute and you just know they’re cooking up something good alongside Heavenly.

Body Horror // Bedwetter
Body Horror disappeared as quickly as they emerged in 2021; dropping thunderous debut single ‘The Gimp’s Gimp’ before retreating back into the shadows. Two long years later, they return with ‘Bedwetter’, and we can’t get enough of it.
