GRM Daily’s Staff Picks: 13th Jan – 20th Jan

20 January 2019

Staff picks is back for another again this week, bringing you some of the bangers the GRM team have had in rotation.

Swindle & Ghetts – Drill Work

“Drill Work” combines the impressive production of Swindle with Ghetts robust style and the two blend seamlessly. The East London rapper spits with a slower flow over a horn infused instrumental. Released alongside a savy lyric video, this one is more reflective that you’d initially think.

“Swindle bodied the production on this. I love the liquidity of the track, it sounds so slick and the horns burst in at the perfect moments to give it that extra punch. Ghetts does what he does best, giving life to the music with his crisp delivery and of course that raw London energy” – Keana (Writer) (@keana_b)

Tyga  – Floss In The Bank

Tyga proves to be staying consistent in dropping bangers this year, with “Floss In The Bank” being that latest. With a instrumental that is laced with Arab-like music notes that the “Taste” rapper flows nicely over, this one is another one that people are going to love at the club. The visuals are bursting with different aspects and energy and has a cheeky cameo.

“Tyga has done it again with another DA Doman track! This track is solidifying a solid run of records. If you’re a film head, you’ll also see some references to some big films – Mehul Bhatt (Writer) (@thisismehul_)

Loyle Carner – You Don’t Know Feat. Rebel Kleff & Kiko Bun

Loyle Carner enlists friends Rebel Kleff and Kiko Bun for this rhythmic track. This one is heartfelt and tells the tale of unrequited love. With a soulful vibe, Kiko Bun provides vocals for the hook and Rebel Kleff doing his part on the second verse. Loyle Carner is as lyrical as ever on this track – the visuals seeing him working at several restaurants.

“Loyle Carner starts 2019 strong with this new track featuring his close affiliates Rebel Kleff and Kiko Bun” – Mike Spyrou (Writer) (@spizzgeta)

P Money – No one

P Money spits over a gritty grime beat with hard-hitting bars and puns. “No one” is pure shellings from the onset and sees P Money get very real, addressing the scene and bigging up himself accordingly. The visuals are well in line with the track with different shots that are dark and ambiguous.

“If anything is going to get you gassed for P Money’s Money Over Everyone 3 EP coming up, then this its this, such a sick track to kick off his year!” – Alice Moodle (Writer) (@musicmoodie)

Take A Daytrip x Octavian– Stressed

This collab sees big production duo, Take A Daytrip link up with Octavian for a transatlantic banger. With all parties smashing it in 2018, this one is great start to the new year. “Stressed” sees the French born rapper spitting in a routine like manner which is undoubtedly catchy and nonetheless a banger.

 “What I love so much about this song is it bridges the gap between London and New York through this grime/trap infused track. Real catchy track, such a great collab” – Natalie Malcom (Writer) (@Natalie_Malcolm)

Little Simz – Selfish Feat. Cleo Sol

“Selfish” is a mellow but vibey track from the talent that it is Little Simz. Simz flexes her versatility in this one, getting raw and reflective on her verses. Cleo Sol provides hypnotising vocals on the hook and throughout the song, bouncing perfectly off the North London rapper. The visuals feature Little Simz alone for the most part in a introspective manner.

“Simz has been dropping quality tracks for years but the instrumentation on her recent drops, including “Selfish”, has taken her to another level. Her album is gonna be nuts.  –

Rudimental – Scared Of Love Feat Ray Blk & Stefflon Don [Preditah Remix] 


This impressive collab is given a garage spruce up from the legend that is Preditah. Over an upbeat instrumental, Ray Blk is melodic on the vocals and Stefflon Don brings a fun dancehall vibe. This remix provides the perfect twist that will have you bopping no matter what.

“The “Scared of Love” remix receives the Preditah treatment and it adds a throwback garage vibe to the track and who doesn’t love the feel good and carefree vibe of garage?” –
