What's on the LeftLion Stereo? Rob Green, Chroma Bay, Lone and more

19 May 17 words: Paul Klotschkow

Our Music Editor picks out some of the best tunes to have come out of our city recently...

Ed Sheeran - Shape Of You (Shookz Bootleg)

Shookz takes the scalpel to the ubiquitous chart botherer, giving him a much-needed banging dancefloor makeover on this free download.

Riff Bastard - May Day! May Day!

Doing exactly what they say on the tin. Speaker-stack-shaking riffs and grizzled vocals combine on this heavy stoner-rock jam.

Rob Green - Belief

The first in what will be a series of tracks released throughout 2017 sees one of Nottingham’s premier singers pleading for strength over a bluesy stomp.


Collab between fellow sound adventurers Kirk Spencer and CJ Mirra continues apace with this propulsive spacey brain frazzler.

Chroma Bay - Gravitational

Breezy electro-pop that puts on its smartest shoes to toe tap around pop and r ‘n’ b.

Lone - From A Past Life

Woozy house track with head-twisting samples, driven by some tropical, percussive beats. Top work from the world-beating Notts producer.

Huw Costin - State Trooper

Torn Sail man takes Springsteen’s already stripped-back classic and takes it back even further until it’s nothing more than a haunted fever dream.

Young T & Bugsey ft. Belly Squad - Gangland

Young Notts artists and CRS alumni make it over 1million views as they continue their takeover of the UK urban scene. Recently signed to Sony, big things are coming.
