The follow-up to 2015’s Revenge of The Dreamers II features a long list of artists from the Dreamville roster, including J. Cole, J.I.D, Bas, EARTHGANG’s Johnny “Olu O. Fann” Venus, Young Nudy, as well as Ari Lennox, Omen, Ty Dolla $ign, and Dreezy.

The album features guest appearances from his sister Willow, Tyler, the Creator, Kid Cudi, as well as A$AP Rocky. “Syre is the nice one, kind of the more sensitive one,” Smith said in an interview. “And Erys is just kind of like, doesn’t really care at all.”

Produced by John Parish, the album features the single ‘Outside of Eden’ with Justis and Kate Stables of This Is the Kit. “I have to say it’s a moody little guy,” says Jesca Hoop about the album, “and she’s definitely on a trip… dressed in something dark and rich.”

It follows Slowdive’s return in 2017 with their self-titled album, while earlier this year the shoegaze band reissued their classic album Pygmalion. It’s interesting to see how this one will compare to Goswell’s work in Slowdive.

Image result for babii hideBABii, HiiDE: UK electronic artist BABii makes futuristic electro-pop/R&B with a dreamy, ethereal aesthetic that has been compared to the likes of Grimes and FKA Twigs. BABii has also collaborated with inventive electronic producer Iglooghost, who supported her in making her debut album, which is out now via Deathwaltz Records. “When writing it, I was still trying to keep a dying relationship alive,” BABii says, “but it was falling apart because of secrets being kept, I was also his secret and there was a lot of things hidden between us.”

Other albums out today: Machine Gun Kelly, Hotel Diablo; Abbath, Outstrider.
