Producer Emile Haynie has production credits that will make you shed a tear, working with the likes of Hip Hop heavy weights Kanye West and Em to pop star Lana Del Rey. Add that to the fact he did some songwriting on FKA twigs latest album and you have yourself formula for music that will make you feel. Emile Haynie gathers the talents of Sampha, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Dev Hynes to make this beautiful song. Charlotte provides the soft vocals in the intro and the beat steadily comes into play, then Sampha comes in suddenly and takes it away. Check out the powerful track below.

Noname Gypsy popped up on many people's radars with her appearance on Chance The Rapper's "Everybody's Something", and the Chicago emcee has since kept a low profile, dropping off "Samaritan" with Mick Jenkins last December, "Take You Back" a few months ago and appearing on Mick's The Water[s] most recently. Noname once again impresses with her latest, linking up with TDE producer Tae Beast for the jazzy cut "Dizzy" which puts Noname's abilities on full display. Hopefully we get Noname's debut project before the year is up, the wait has been well worth it however with the tracks she's dropped here and there.
Just one of Chaz Bundick's musical aliases, there's an upcoming Les Sins album set to release on November 4th, and if "Bother" is any indication of what to expect, it's sure to be nothing short of amazing. "Bother" makes use of an attitude laced looping vocal sample throughout, that states "don't bother me, I'm workin", complemented by some choice synths and a bouncy groove that leads up to an ill switch up about three quarters of the way through. This joint is mean, lookout for Michael on November 4th and more from Toro soon.
Raury surfaced on our radar with the recent visuals for "Cigarette Song", an amazing treatment which sparked our intrigue in his debut release Indigo Child. The Atlanta youth not only writes but produces his own tracks, the 13 track genre mashing project is one of the phenomenal releases we've seen in some time. Take "Wildfire" for instance, which commences with some atmospheric vocals from Raury over a melodic guitar loop, which gives way to some gritty instrumentation and double-time wordplay from the Raury. Follow that up with the hard hitting "Woodcrest Manor" which channels contemporary Atlanta rap via the use of some catchy flows, and pit that up against the high energy "Chariots of Fire", pieced together by a choice sampling of a conversation between Raury and his mother, and you have an extremely solid debut LP. This project is available for free download via Raury's website, where you either play a game and score 15,000 points or choose to share the project via social media.
Kilo Kish provides us with visuals for "Locket" from her latest release Across, which was the follow-up to her debut release K+. Kilo has definitely been impressing with her material as of late, following up the visuals to "Begin Route" with a solid video in "Locket", which also features a cameo from Syd.
