i-D march mixtape 2015
Kicking off the mixtape is man of the month, Skepta, with his latest tune Shutdown. Opening Kanye West's surprise London show, throwing down at SXSW and reheating old beef with Devilman has certainly got his name on peoples' lips. Brother by blood and Boy Better Know, JME also features with his latest drop Don't @ Me, taken from new album, Integrity. Action Bronson brings a new collab with Chance The Rapper (the video is a must-watch), plus brand spanking new tunes form Jay Electronica, Tei Shi, Allan Kingdom, Flako, Darkstar & Zomby, Clark, Adesse Versions, George Fitzgerald and Ghengar all lay in wait.
Legendary UK rapper Roots Manuva stepped back into the scene with a brand new Four Tet produced head nodder Facety 2:11 while SBTRKT is currently going mad on his SoundCloud, dropping new beats on the daily - our pick of which lies inside. Signing off the mixtape this month is new music from Lapalux featuring beautiful vocals from Andreya Triana on a track taken from forthcoming Brainfeeder-signed album, Lustmore.
Art and music collective Real Life Charm take over March's cover art by looking to the spring equinox, druid celebrations at Stone Henge, and ancient Saxon goddess Eostre. Find more of their charming work at reallifecharm.co.uk
