Lost Girl is a short but sweet instrumental and the third release from Delusionists' recent trail of songs dubbed the Lost Letters. Pick up the previous two to hear what's been found so far.

Coming off the back of last year's Force Of Habit, Prose are here again, this time with their second album - The Darkside Of The Boom. Expect loops for hip hop faithfuls and unforgiving spit from rapper Efeks.
An unexpected pairing, Bristol electro-via-dubstep producer Joker collaborates with ex-Interscope signee and Young Jeezy cohort Freddie Gibbs. The Vision is off his debut album of the same name, which you can get your ears round here.
Beat Butcha makes a power move, muscling in on Mobb Deep's first release since Prodigy was freed from clinky earlier this year. As might be expected, his track on the long-awaited EP is all belligerent, bully hip hop.
Always good to hear new Myke Forte production. The Brum beat creator laces C4 with typically sumptuous head-nod hip hop on Time, in part an ode to rocking OoRITE! retro chains.
Wretch 32, Ghetts, Chipmunk, Smiler, G FrSH, Bigz, Mic Righteous, Mz Bratt, Roxxxan, Lady Leshurr and Akala represent for the BET's UK cyphers this year. The line-up sees everyone from grime, hip hop and road rap mainstays play their position, representative of the country's patchwork of sub-scenes. If you've got an issue with the picks, holla @BET.
Melanin 9's illuminati-baiting testaments on The Book get a video edition, this being the closer to his Orion's Stencil project that dropped this time last year - and was one of the strongest releases of 2010.
The second in the curious Lost Letters series, Delusionists get to lifting the mood with Elevator Music, featuring Piff Gang's Super Dertie and produced by Mr Loop.

Sav Killz and M.O.P.'s Lil Fame spit that gutter over a heavy dose of boom bap from Beat Butcha. By all accounts the Brit producer was in the lab with Prodigy recently too...
So potent is Wizard's latest batch of beats that upon hearing them you'll pull the very same screwface you would after catching whiff of an unkempt vagina. Get your stankgrill on!
Estelle and company show what they've got for one of this year's BET cyphers. UK acts have been getting a look-in on these for a couple of years now, with both Sway and Dizzee having stepped up to the plate.
Stylah follows up 2006's successful Crash Course mixtape with a sequel. Going off the tracklist, not to mention the video for The Light with Lowkey, this is chock-a-block with beats you know and love, both young and old.
Delusionists just dropped off the first in a series of songs dubbed The Lost Letters - none of which will feature on their next album proper. Here Ben Black delivers a brooding statement of intent over a beast of a beat from the legendary Apatight. And there's more where this came from.
Ray Vendetta lets his languid flow loose over broken breakbeat production from Hey!zeus. The Triple Darkness member's Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner EP is set to drop imminently.
English Frank, possibly the toughest looking bloke in the scene, laments the loss of loved ones and more innocent times on In A Minute. Frank's running on a high at the minute, so expect to see his name around for a while.
The latest from Samson sees him try his hand at a dubstep number while letting you know how you don't do it like him. There certainly aren't that many as prolific as him.

If you too were wondering what the next episode in the UK's march on the US was going to be, here it is. Snoop joins D Double E and company for this official remix to Be Like Me.
Apologies for the radio rip. Download to follow.
Badbonez takes the baton from Mystro and kills it in typical fashion. Tony D - formerly of Poisonous Poets alongside Doc Brown, Reveal, Lowkey and Stylah - has been working hard on the battle circuit of late and has some serious spit to him, so let's hope he continues the relay.
Cast your mind back a couple of years and you'll recall the UK's influence in US hip hop was negligible at best. Since then it seems to be leaching its way in - whether its Tinie Tempah getting Snoop to grace remixes or P Diddy calling on Skepta to give his music a stamp of authenticity. Now Mobb Deep's Prodigy and fellow NYC rapper Boogz Boogetz jack Skream's Filth. What ever next?
