U+Music – Five tracks to power your playlists 

Written by Sam Walker.
Posted June 16, 2023.

It’s been a big week for music, we wade through latest releases to pick out five tracks to add to your playlists. From artists that are ruling the scene to emerging newcomers, this diverse compilation is sure to captivate all and even bring some tunes you won’t be able to escape this summer.  

First up is the grime collab everyone was waiting for with Dave and Central Cee. Now we’ve not gone for the main single, Sprinter, but instead chose Our 25th Birthday from the recently released Split Decision EP. This slow UK melodic rap song features Dave’s signature storytelling style complemented with Central Cee’s less polished flow, it just works. It also follows Dave’s style of including a topical football bar, which in our opinion is the best football bar out of the four songs referencing the recent Ivan Toney controversy – ‘I’m Ivan Toney, the way they’re watching my wages’ 🔥 

Noel Gallagher is back with a new album, and you know we had to include the former Oasis legend’s songs. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released their new album Council Skies and our pick of the bunch is Open The Door, See What You Find. This Indy tune featuring Jonny Marr is going to be a classic, so make sure you give it a listen.  

French Montana and Kodak Black take us across the pond for the only time in this list with I Can’t Lie. Bringing the energy with this new release, trading bars throughout the song over a head bopping trap beat. Get this one added to your summer playlist, and keep it there.  

Next up on the list we have a relatively unknown up and coming Manchester artist in HUGO, who has released CHANGING featuring Tasty Lopez. This newly release euphoric house song comes from the new EP ‘NON STOP EUPHORIA’ and will have you weekend ready with Tasty Lopez’s unique vocals over the this funky house tune. Turn your speakers up for this one.  

Finally, we have the return of the infamous Julio Bashmore, releasing his first song since 2015 with Bubblin. We are split in the office on whether to include this one in the list, but it’s my article so I’m including it. Not for everyone, with the mutated bassline and recurring distorted vocals but it’s good to see an iconic producer back and it had to be included even if I’m just living off the nostalgia of Au Seve brings.
