Are your playlists in desperate need of some revitalising? Tired of listening to the same old tracks over and over? Longing to discover a place that delivers the freshest, most melodic, sweet-sounding music out there, time and time again? Look no further...

Containing a sample selection of just 20 of the best new releases from the past four weeks, our staff-curated Essential Listening playlist boasts an always eclectic offering of gems courtesy of a score of both established chart-topping icons and emerging underground names.  

Refreshed every other week without fail, this week's recently added anthems come from BRIT-Award-winning producer, Fred Again, Daniel Avery with HAAi, spoken word poet, Loyle Carner, Mura Masa with 'Brexit Bandit', Slowthai, Gabriels and South London rap-hybrid, Knucks, to name a few. 

Grab your headphones, listen to this week's choices and, whilst you're there, listen to the previous selections picked out at the beginning of the month. Enjoy.
