After dropping the awesome Coke White, Starlight back in September, and posting a series of in-studio snaps on Instagram but no new music for month, Mykky Blanco has now appeared on two tracks in the space of a week. Last Thursday brought Scales, a disorientating clip with hardcore bars produced by Jeremiah Meece, and now a collaboration with Brixton-based artist Gaika has dropped, titled Push More Weight.

Opening with an ethereal, breathy vocal from Gaika, the song then drops into a thick, bouncy beat and Mykki Blanco rapping with a flow that is not dissimilar to Azealia Banks' banger 212. Ahead of the release, Blanco posted on Instagram to promote Push More Weight -- "It's a TUNE" -- and to explain that Scales won't be on his upcoming album, but that he is working on it: "Just in the woods finishing this fucking album and mixtape and other shit being an actual member of society and not living on tour lol okay, peace".
