Alongside the global activism portfolio in the latest issue of Dazed, there is a tonne of radical new music that you need to check out. My particular favourites of the month are Ford & Lopatin's nostalgic take on 80s synth pop, Zeus B Held's authentic take on 80s synth pop and Two Inch Punch's evolution of 80s synth pop. Away from the Korgs and Yamahas, we have a huge new track from Sebastian, who ropes in soul crooner Mayer Hawthorne for a Prince inspired jam; Justice, with their prog rock inspired comeback; and an appearance from man of the moment, Tyler, The Creator. If you missed the feature Dazed ran last year on OFWGKTA before the global hype machine took hold, Dazed Digital has uploaded it here. Big shout out to Caroline Ryder for that one. The end of the playlist veers away from the dance floor with the wonderfully named Nguuuni Lovers Lovers, Ear Pwr, Battles, Wise Blood, The Antlers, Gallops, and Trentemoller's dark cover of Chris Isaak's "Blue Hotel". As for MC Nu Thang, well, he's in a league all of his own. Enjoy!
