i-D may mixtape 2014
May's the month to have music your way, check out our mix to cherry pick the best of new music.
After another great month of music, the much anticipated May Mixtape is here featuring 27 of our favourite sonic segments.
A new label from Ryan Hemsworth, launched with the release from Tennyson kicking off the mixtape, followed by some soft sweetness from Kelela, a debut single Sinead Harnett & Snakehips and an undeniable rework of Pharrell's Happy by Kaytranada.
Fresh music from Skepta & JME sits alongside some new heavyweight business from Darq E Freaker before the mixtape is closed off by some sublime, new, Throwing Snow.
The May Mixtape comes complete with artwork courtesy of 23 year old, East London dwelling, Fashion Illustrator Jermaine Ampomah. Find his inspirations (and the occasional design) on his moodboard blog here.
Press play on the sound of May.
