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.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
