Dazed August 2012 Playlist

Listen to 35 big new tunes from the likes of Azealia Banks, SSION, Blanck Mass, Swim Deep and JJ Doom

Setting off this month's playlist is our favourite safe sex campaigner Azealia Banks, with a vicious little ditty entitled "Succubi". Apparently seven counties didn't agree with her proactive prophylactic posturing on our cover, which was even more shocking than their decision to ban the issue. Their loss, we're crazy for AB and her pink love balloon. What makes her Jim Jones diss track even more cutting is that it was produced by AraabMuzik, a beatmaker who came up through Jones' Dipset camp. Maybe he needs to drink some of Azealia's Kool Aid. We have. It's delicious. Also in the mix are new tracks from Njena Reddd Foxxx, JJ Doom, Blanck Mass, Jessie Ware, Swim Deep and our favourite Russian punks, Pussy Riot. There's loads more to discover, so turn it up and let us know which tracks you liked, and which ones, erm, blowed...
