Ahead of his forth coming album, supposedly releasing next month, we take a quick look and see how this man is surviving.
I don’t know about you, but when you hear someone say 'seaside town' I instantly think dirty overcast grey sky, cold annoying breeze and steamy, moist café windows filled with miserable day trippers avoiding the rain outside. A harsh reality right of what often is a British seaside town. Well that’s how I feel like thinking of the seaside town today anyway.
However, over the last few years, it’s been pretty hard to ignore all the hype surrounding certain seaside towns. If I see Margate in the Evening Standard one more time.... But fuck it, let’s talk about Margate.
This week we thought we'd grace your ears with the incredible Blue Lights by Wolverhampton native turned London inhabitant Jorja Smith.

Max sat down with Edd over some chicken wings, Oreo Doughnuts and a Bourbon Espresso Martini, while he gave us the low down on the bar and restaurant.
The 25 minute mix is considerably trap based, but is peppered with grime and seasoned with some classic garage and hip hop samples.
The artwork comes from a concept created by Danhprt, to 3D scan the environment in which the mix was recorded. Upon closer inspection you can see it's a living room with a sofa, a DJ set up and a laptop on a table.
