Denzel Curry – Knotty Head UK Remix Feat. AJ Tracey & Rick Ross

AJ Tracey heats things up on the UK remix of Denzel Curry’s ‘Knotty Head’ where he steps in first on the opening verse, setting the levels for the rest of the track with Denzel Curry and Rick Ross who take on the track after. The video is shot in West London and also shows shots of Denzel performing at the Jazz Cafe in London.

 

Frisco feat Shola Ama – Rocket

Frisco ends the year on high with a brand new visual taken from his ‘System Killer’ project. ‘Rocket’ is given a vintage feel for the video and shows the pair walking through Fris’ hood in Tottenham as he rides the laid-back beat effortlessly.

Yungen – Cuffing Season

Yungen drops another track for the girls which he always does so well! The South London rapper talks us through why this girl might be the one to take him off the market, and why winter is ‘Cuffing Season’.

Wiley – 6 In The Bloodclart Morning

The Godfather of Grime is back at it with some more visuals taken from his forthcoming “Godfather” album due January 13th. It’s classic Wiley, straight-fire bars, over an old skool sounding Grime beat.

Rude Kid – Mix

Rude Kid has had an epic year with the release of his ‘Noah’s Ark’ E.P, touring with Chase & Status, performing at festivals and announcing his Kiss Grime show. He leaves us at the end of 2016 with a huge mix of some of his biggest records mixed with exclusives of forthcoming releases.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @Footsie @izziegibbs @KingPMoney @SCRUFIZZER @AJFromTheLane

Footsie – My Team

Footsie dedicates a track to his team. Produced by OGTaxx of American production team 808 Mafia, Footsie spits some hard bars over a trap lead beat, lighting a spliff for the people who keep it real with him.

Izzie Gibbs – Bare Talk On Road

Izzie Gibbs hits us with a brand new video ‘Bare Talk On Road’ taken from his ‘Jutsu’ EP. We see him step out a barber shop where Big Narstie is waiting to go in. The Northampton MC delivers a message with his fierce flow.

P Money ft. JME & Wiley – Gunfingers

Three of some of Grime’s best lyricists unite for ‘Gunfingers’. P Money, JME and Wiley all throw down bars in a tribute to gunfingers, a signal done in a rave to show appreciation for the track. The track produced by Skepta has an old-skool vibe to it, and is taken from P Money’s forthcoming album ‘Live & Direct’.

Scrufizzer X Aubrey Whyte – Out & Bad

Scrufizzer switches it up for his new one with actor Aubrey White, where he gets rawer than usual for ‘Out & Bad’. Scrufizzer flows over a hard-hitting, dark beat with a heavy bassline, with his trademark adlibs present too.

AJ Tracey – Buster Cannon

One of Grime’s hottest prospects AJ Tracey drops the cinematic visuals shot in Japan to the lead single from his forthcoming EP ‘Lil Tracey’ released in December. Produced by Canada’s Tre Mission this super powered beat fits perfectly with AJ’s fast flow and dextrous wordplay.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @SantanDave1 @AJFromTheLane @Snow667 @RaheemBakare @TheCocoUK @OfficialDPower

 Dave & AJ Tracey – Thiago Silva

Dave & AJ Tracey are two of the best up and coming, young MC’s and joining forces together makes for one hot track. For the visuals they take it from Paris where footballer Thiago Silver plays for, to Ladbroke Grove where AJ Tracey’s from, to Streatham – Dave’s hometown. This see’s the two show of their lyrical skills as they go back to back on a Prince Rapid and 169 production.

Snowy – Fucked Up

Nottingham MC Snowy drops the visuals to a track off of his recently released ‘Knots’ EP. ‘Fucked Up’ talks through the trials and tribulations of his life over a melancholy, dark beat produced by Riddla. The visuals, beat and lyrics match each other perfectly and you can see it’s been well thought out, check it out below.

Raheem Bakare – Forever You

Raheem Bakare the soulful UK singer, takes us on a journey around London and Amsterdam for his new video for ‘Forever You.’ Raheem pays homage to the golden days of R&B, but brings a fresh innovative twist. He is one of the UK’s freshest, rawest and honest talents that is due to be huge. Let Raheem take you on a journey of a broken man, whose fate changes.

Coco ft. AJ Tracey & Nadia Rose – Big N Serious Remix

Three hot Grime MC’s link up for Coco’s ‘Big N Serious’ remix and now we have been gifted the visuals to match. With their 3 different styles and flows, they still all manage to murk the track whilst complementing each other. With Toddla T on production, this one is going to be a future classic riddim for sure.

D Power ft. Frisco & Lay-Z – Like Dem

D Power brings us cartoon visuals for his new track ‘Like Dem,’ which is the 2nd release from his forthcoming mixtape ‘Progress 3’ released 2nd June. The east London MC is joined by Boy Better Know’s Frisco and Lay-Z for this hard new track produced by Audio Slugs.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @TheCocoUK @MajorB2DAL @RATLIN @chaseandstatus @Novelist @Wretch32 @WilkinsonUK

Coco ft. AJ Tracey & Nadia Rose – Big N Serious Remix

Sheffield Grime MC Coco’s latest track “Big N Serious” has been creating waves on the radio, online and on the TV for months now. The track has now been giving an official remix with two of Grime’s newest and hottest MC’s AJ Tracey and Nadia Rose also jumping on the track to add their magic. The levels of lyricism on this track are mental, and the three MC’s discuss everything from fakes, snakes, to mums.

Milli Major ft. Doctor – Merking

Bloodline representative Milli Major is back with an exciting new video “Merking” with a feature from Doctor. Milli destroys the track like a don does with his innate vocals and lyrics over a thumping 140 riddim. Doctor switches things up bringing a Dancehall vibe to the hook and immediately launches into a verse too.

Ratlin ft. Ayo Beatz – Never Doubt

Ratlin is back on his A-game with this brand new one “Never Doubt”. He brings in Ayo Beatz for the auto-tuned hook. This one sees Ratlin reaching for the sky for this inspiring track where he talks money, power and respect. We see Ratlin driving around in a very nice white Mercedes in the visuals and shots with his friends too. We should be seeing a lot more from the West London rapper who has been a little quiet lately.

Chase & Status ft. Novelist – NRG

Chase & Status have brought us some of the biggest anthems and after their latest London Bars series, with one of their tracks ft. Novelist “Bigger Man Sound”, they have joined forces again with him for brand new one “NRG”. Opening with a Prodigy sound, the track then launches into a bass fuelled, synth driven track, with Novelist showering it down with his bars.

Wilkinson And Wretch 32 – Flatline

After hearing the audio to this track already, we now have the energetic and fun visuals to match Wilkinson and Wretch 32’s joint track for “Flatline”. What a banger!

Five Emcees To Watch Out For In 2016 @UncleMez @AJFromTheLane @Jammz @MsBanks94 @TheCocoUK

Mez

Mez is definitely the next in Grime. A young Nottingham artist from Crew 12, he started 2015 on a high by spitting bars on Sir Spryo’s Grime Show on Rinse FM. The rest of 2015 saw some pretty big accomplishments for him such as being on the legendary Lord Of The Mics series where he battled Trappy, putting out a single with DJ Cable ‘One Line Flows’, going on Stormzy’s ‘Live In The Flesh’ tour, performing live at the Boiler Room x Eskimo Dance alongside artists such as Ghetts and last but not least being asked to record for the Grime Live Orchestra at Maida Vale on a session back to back with AJ Tracey. He has serious energy and a lyrical badness that’s not to be messed with.

Mez

 AJ Tracey

West London’s AJ Tracey has had a lot of heat surrounding his name due to the amount of hard work and consistency. He has flourished in 2015. He represents Grime’s original days, where MC’s would go to pirate radio as much as they could for the love and commitment they have for the music. He has been putting in the work on radio shows in 2015 from Rinse to NTS to Radar Radio and 1Xtra. This shine’s through in his bodies of work he has released in 2015, his two EP’s ‘The Front’ and ‘Alex Moran’, as well as individual singles such as ‘Spirit Bomb’ and freestyles where his wordplay shines.

Jammz

East Londoner Jammz has really struck out this year. I’ve seen him MC’ing on sets with Plastician at festivals and raves such as Ceremony Festival where he drew the crowd in like a pro. This year has been a fantastic year for him; he released his ‘Hit Then Run’ EP in March, and if you listen to radio, well you can’t miss him as he’s performed on sets on Radar, Deju Vu and Rinse among others. Not only does he MC, he also produces too making him an all-round artist, producing his own tracks such as ‘Hit Then Run’ and ‘Warrior’. His lyricism and work ethic makes him a serious threat for 2016.

Jammz USE

Ms Banks

 21 year old Ms Banks is ready to make this year her year. The South London fiery MC is everything we need from a female MC; she’s genuine, commanding and confident. Last year saw her release a string of tracks such as ‘Hallelujah’, ‘The Get Back’ and more. Beware as she’s not afraid to take on anyone as she says on track ‘Halleljuah’ “any brothers can get it”, and you know she means it with her powerful delivery and clear cut lyrics. She means business and this year she’s also featured on Tinie Tempah’s new project on track ‘Been The Man’ with two other high profile MC’s JME and Stormzy. She will take no prisoners in 2016.

Ms-Banks

Coco

Sheffield’s Coco has shown you don’t have to be from London to be accepted in Grime. He has come through full force this year with single’s ‘Target Practice’, ‘Big Bou Yah’ and the ‘Big Bou Yah Remix’ ft Jammz, Terminator and Trigga all produced by Toddla T and receiving airplay on Radio 1, and being on the playlist on 1Xtra. His Fire In The Booth dropped on Boxing Day, confirming his status as a next to blow MC, as his lyrics and flow are untouchable, changing pace to suit different vibes. Coco sound and lyrics are different and witty and this is why he’s shut down stages at Nottinghill Carnival, various raves and Ibiza Rocks this year.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @BigFris @iamShakka @merkyACE @CADELLOFFICIAL @StickyBloodUK @TheCocoUK @JusRival @Jammz

Frisco ft Shakka – Different Kind

This isn’t the first time Frisco and Shakka have collaborated, at the beginning of this year Frisco dropped a verse on Shakka’s “Rollin With Elephants”, and he has in turn come on board for Frisco’s “Different Kind”. This track sees Frisco take an unexpected turn as he spits over a rock beat, whilst Shakka brings the fluid gold to the hook. Take a listen to “Different Kind” below, we’re sure you will be impressed.

Merky Ace x Cadell – Alive

Tizzy Gangs Merky Ace and Cadell drop the brand new black & white visuals to track “Alive”. It’s a good track to end the year on, as they both are reflective and talk about how to be valued and appreciated whilst they are here. The lyrics and visuals come across quite chilling, and the track is a definite for our tracks of the week.

Sticky Blood ft. Coco & Snowy – One Bar In

Production duo Sticky Blood show a gritty, futuristic side to their producing skills on “One Bar In”. They are joined by two of the hottest MCs from the North of England, Sheffield’s Coco who Annie Mac has named on her ‘Hot For 2016′ list and is playlisted on Kiss 100, 1Xtra, AKA and Flava TV with his single, and Nottingham MC Snowy who has gained a lot of attention this year too. Both were named on Complex’s ’15 Grime MC’s Outside Of London That You Need To Know Today’ list.

Rival ft. Blay – Alright

East London MC Rival released his latest EP ‘Eat Biscuits’ in October, named after his love for biscuits. This week saw the video for one of the tracks come out ft. Blay who also produced the track. The video and track is dark and sinister, reflecting on people that act like something they’re not and give it the big talk.

AJ Tracey ft Jammz – Bare Girls

Both AJ Tracey and Jammz are names you need to pay attention too as they are set for big things. “Bare Girls” is taken from AJ Tracey’s highly anticipated Alex Moran EP which dropped on Friday. The track shows love to the girls which is quite rare in Grime, especially when it’s in a positive way. The track is produced by Jammz too, and shows why the two are the hottest prospects for Grime.
