We’re asking a lot of you this month. We already want you to vote for your final Q awards nominations. We also would love you to consider splashing out 20 quid for the Q Awards nominees show on 16 October at the Roundhouse, in London, to see Pale Waves, supported by Easy Life, and a very special guest, this year’s Maverick Award-winner, Edwyn Collins. (That’s more of a gift than a request, really – I’m cutting my own throat here darling, I can’t give you quality like that any cheaper!) One more thing, though. As we roll down time’s precipice towards the end of the decade, please also find a moment in the next few days to mull over the song which to your mind has most defined the period between…

“When it comes to hip-hop, we associate it with American culture. But I can still add my essence to hip-hop.” It was in the aftermath of her two acclaimed mixtapes – 2015’s The Great Mixtape and 2017’s Australian Music Prize-winning Birds And The BEE9 – that Sampa Tembo, otherwise known as Sampa The Great, started to feel uneasy. Born in Zambia and raised in Botswana’s capital Gaborone, the singer and rapper moved to Sydney in 2014 to study sound engineering. As her musical reputation grew, leading to support slots with Kendrick Lamar, Lauryn Hill and Thundercat, she noticed something disturbing: “Being based in Australia and being called Australian, I felt like my identity was being erased or just… put under the rug. I really felt like I had to tell the…
