retropxssy returns with her new single ‘All The Things’ which showcases her love of raw, minimalist hip-hop with a soulful vibe. The London based artist creates an enticing blend on the track that showcases her eccentric, idiosyncratic flow and ability to make reflective, everyday emotions seem otherworldly and intriguing. It’s real and in the real world, but it’s retropxssy’s world and the reality is very much hers. Sonically inspired by legendary producers like Madlib and Alchemist and Griselda’s innovative Mach Hommy, retropxssy was sent the beat through a chance encounter with producer Tony Bontana on Reddit. She was also aided on production by JoeJas, whom she met by chance on the London Overground. Subsequently, JoeJas has gone on to be her closest creative partner, shooting and co-directing the visual for ‘All The Things’. Based around a loop that’ll stick in your head long after the two minutes are up, ‘All The Things’ sees retropxssy in contemplative mood traversing the urban sprawl of London. She explains more: “‘All The Things’ is about feeling your back against the wall. Monsters in the shadows. Your mind screams run! But where to? I wrote it when I needed to escape from an intolerable place and realised I had nowhere to go. It also mirrors the hostile place my mind can be. I realised, to quote modern cult classic ‘We’re Going on a Bearhunt’: “..we’ll just have to go through it! Squelch through the mud and see where we find ourselves. ” To compliment the release of ‘All The Things’, a video will be released that gives an extra dimension to the song’s already inventive feel. The surreal imagery of the video includes a girl who wants to be a mermaid and a malicious fisherman looking for his next catch. The red gloves should be avoided at all costs.

JT has gone hard for ‘Okay,’ her latest single that finds her bars going even harder. “I’m about to get super annoying promoting okay!” The Miami rapper admitted to her followers on X (formerly Twitter) ahead of the song’s release. “I want this song to GO!” JT shouldn’t have to try too hard to convince people on ‘Okay,’ considering the song oozes infectious confidence. “I’m pretty than a motherfcker, hoes be looking okay,” she raps. “She think that she fckin’ with me, is this btch okay? / He said he ain’t fckin’ around, I look at him like, ‘Okay’ / I used to down bad, but now a b*tch okay.” [via Uproxx]

FLOHIO is back with a new single. ‘Make It Bang’ – produced by Karma Kid – is her first release since the arrival of debut album Out of Heart in 2022. She comments: “Always admired Karma Kid’s sonic versatility. I recorded my first songs just up the road from Brixton over a decade ago – those were good times! It felt full circle being in that room, creating with wonder kids. “I took a year off music after touring ‘Out of Heart,’ thinking about the next phase. Wanted something stimulating, fun, and light after a heavy 2023. Inspired by Jersey Club and Electronic music, and added a London flair while keeping my industrial sound. Love how the sounds in ‘Make It Bang’ cut through! “Excited about piecing together concepts for my next album. I’m pushing myself harder than ever before.” [via Dork]
