Although perhaps not as cutting-edge as ‘Atrocity Exhibition’, ‘uknowhatimsayin¿’ is Danny Brown’s most consistent effort.

REVIEW: Flying Lotus – ‘Flamagra’ (Warp Records)

The first Flying Lotus album in five years, ‘Flamagra’ sees Steven Ellison exploring his life-long passion for hip-hop but plays it slightly too safe on occasion.

REVIEW: Zomby – ‘Vanta’ EP (Bedouin Records)

After so long at the cutting-edge of post-dubstep, it’s strange to hear Zomby happy to stand still and luxuriate on new EP ‘Vanta’.

REVIEW: ScHoolboy Q – ‘CrasH Talk’ (Interscope / Top Dawg)

On ‘CrasH Talk’, ScHoolboy Q reflects on a decade in the rap game with a more mature effort, despite some unnecessary filler.

REVIEW: SASAMI – ‘SASAMI’ (Domino)

Sasami Ashworth’s satisfying debut album combines varied instrumentation and well-meshed harmonies with bare emotion.

REVIEW: Little Simz – ‘GREY Area’ (AGE 101 / AWAL)

On her debut album proper ‘GREY Area’, Little Simz demonstrates why she’s been one of UK hip-hop’s most hyped properties for so long.
