There’s no other way to describe the last month of music other than mad. The amount of releases has been crazy, and the quality incredible.

Ghetts returned to the fore with ‘Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament’, which not only myself, but a lot of people who listen to UK music, are putting in the running for album of the year. Chip reminded us all why he’s Mr Versatile after releasing a 10-track project rich in diversity of sound. Skepta & Dizzee Rascal collaborated on new track ‘Money Right’ – one of my personal favourites of the year.

BBC 1Xtra’s newest DJ, Big Zuu, one of the champions of the Grime scene, began preparation for his upcoming release ‘Content with Content’, after we were teased with ‘Fall Off’.

The Wizard of Wandsworth Ché Lingo extended his hand to US rapper Mick Jenkins for one of the collabs of the year with ‘No Sidekicks’.

Northampton’s hometown hero – Slowthai – dropped a monster EP ‘Runt’ whilst on his Circus Tour. A 5-track project full of ‘Thai’s signature social commentary and high energy, which contained the 2 super hot tracks ‘Slow Down (Santa)’ & ‘Drug Dealer’.

With a tonne more music on the way over the next few months, the rest of 2018 is looking to be following on trend with the rest of the year in quality of music releases. Despite some claiming ‘grime is dead’, the genre, alongside all other UK genres, looks to be thriving right now.
