#Kano provides an essential guide to the essentials of early grime in the latest episode of Top Five. The legendary east London MC and Top Boy star, ranks his favorite beats from across the genre’s foundational period, taking time to shout out production from Jammer, Ruff Sqwad, Danny Weed, and more.

“We rarely hear instrumentals any more,” he says, explaining the turn-of-the-century period when he was coming up alongside peers such as Dizzee Rascal and Wiley. “[Back] then we were listening to tunes every day with no artist so it was, like, ‘How could I spit on this? How could I turn this into something?’ It’s a blank canvas. That’s how we looked at it.”

Matty Healy of The 1975 is asking pop’s existential questions: The FADER Interview | The FADER

Matty Healy of The 1975 is asking pop’s existential questions: The FAD…

The FADER – This Friday, The 1975’s fourth album Notes On A Conditional Form finally arrives in its entirety, following a rollout that began last summer. “There’s a lot of talk about why the album got pushed back, and all these kind of things,” Healy told us. “It’s kind of irrelevant. The premise of my idea was always really to just continuously have a real time expression.” Conditional is the operative word here. The album sways with a continuous ebb and flow, pushing the band to the most extreme ends of a spectrum they’ve been operating on for the better part of the last decade: it’s simultaneously their most aggressive and dreamy work to date, tied together with iCloud ambience. To Healy, seemingly oppositional forces are the ones most worth pursuing: “I’m always trying to figure out who I am, a search for the definitive self. Why am I this walking set of contradictions when I believe that I’m actually this? Why am I not essentially me?” Speaking from lockdown in his home studio outside of London, Healy opened up on what making Notes On A Conditional Form revealed about himself, how he currently feels about America, and what needs to be saved during this time of reckoning, within the music industry and beyond.

The FADER – Activist and musician #CHIKA may have broken up with The Read’s co-host #CrissleWest on camera, but CHIKA still has hope that they’ll work things out. Or at least that’s how she felt in the taping of our latest Would You Rather. They both put aside their differences for a day to talk about their favorite and least favorite zodiac signs, if a long distance relationship was more bearable than finding love on the show Love Is Blind, going back in time to start life over, and if being a part of Beychella Part 2 is more of an accomplishment than being the face of the next Ivy Park collection.
