Listen to the best new songs from across the genre spectrum

Check out these tracks from our NEXT HYPE playlist, which is dedicated to bringing you the best music from all of the genres out there.

1. Sampha - 'Suspended'

Sampha marked the release of his highly anticipated new album 'Lahai' with another spell-binding run of live shows at Hackney Church earlier this month. Proving exactly why he's regarded as one of the country's very best artists, this deeply personal new record is one of the strongest projects to arrive this year. 'Suspended' is one of our favourites so far and tops our NEXT HYPE playlist this week. 

2. Ego Ella May - 'Higher Self'

South London sensation Ego Ella May is back with a new single from her forthcoming EP 'FIELDNOTES PT III'. Titled 'Higher Self', the track is about "self-love, and the way I imagine my higher self engages and speaks with me, challenging all the thoughts I have about being hard to love. It's a mantra of sorts that I hope will stick with you." This is a really strong offering from one of the UK's most exciting rising stars. 

3. Jockstrap feat. Taylor Skye - 'Good Girl' 

Jockstrap and Taylor Skye have shared 'Good Girl' as the latest track taken from their upcoming remix album 'I<3UQTINVU' – a fully reworked version of the Mercury Prize shortlisted 2022 album 'I Love You Jennifer B'. The new offering was inspired by some of Skye’s favourite dance acts growing up such as Disclosure and James Blake.
