Oxlade — “Away”

One of the most talented rising stars working today, Oxlade continues to impress with every single thing he does, from infectious singles to standout features. His latest effort, “Away” is certainly no different.

TMXO — “Ologo Space Cadet”

Anyone who’s been paying attention already knows that TMXO, the genius who co-produced Burna Boy’s astonishing “Different”, is among the most exciting up-and-coming producers we have.

He reaffirms this with TMX001: Alàdélọbà, a 6-track project that lets him show off his range. Then on “Ologo Space Cadet”, a clear standout, he delivers a magnetic party-starter that dares you to try standing still.
