MORRISSON ft. AITCH – HOUSE & GARAGE
East Londoner Morrisson has called on Mancunian top-dog Aitch for a brand new track titled ‘House & Garage’. Following up from Morrisson’s previous established drops, this collaborative track takes to a different era, reminiscent of an old-school garage house party in the late 90s.

NSG – COLONIZATION
Furthering the success from their previous single ‘Drunk Guitar’, six-piece collective NSG are back, this time gracing us with a brand new track entitled ‘Colonization’. The track begins in their signature, suave manner, showcasing the afro-bashment group among a full piece string orchestra. Stringing along their renowned flows and smooth melodies over the 4pLAY-produced cut, yet again, the boys provide a pleasantly expected insight into their musical creativity and abilities.
MAX LEO – COULD BE SOMETHING
Continuing to define himself among the non-linear brand of pop music, Max Leo paints a vivid picture of the Gen-Z romance throughout his latest offering ‘Could Be Something’. The infectious single is fuelled by ambient lo-fi textures, offering notes of nostalgia hinged with a modern-day love song.
