Pixies Tracks Of The Week @SNOW667 @LethalBizzle @ScorchersLife @Davinche @DevlinOfficial

Snowy – Idris Elba

Nottingham MC Snowy’s workrate is incredible, and he drops a new one for us titled ‘Idris Elba,’ paying homage to someone who is inspirational to him. It’s a strong track full of intelligent bars and witty wordplay from one of this years serious one to watch Grime MC’s.

Lethal Bizzle feat. Giggs & Flowdan – Round Here

Lethal Bizzle releases the first single from his forthcoming album ‘Lennox Rd,’ and it’s a cold one. The Heavytrackerz bring us a instrumental full of drama and suspense whilst Bizzle bring us heavy-duty, aggressive bars, and Giggs well Giggs he definitely shows up some Grime MC’s as he goes innnnnnn on this track whilst Flowdan helps out Bizzle on the hook. This is a banger!

Scorcher – Paranoid

Scorcher brings us a dark & determined track to kick off his 2017 produced by Donaeo’ who also adds some of his recognisable adlibs to the track. It’s full of sinister twists and turns and shows off Scorchers lyrical ability and set of flows he has.

Davinche – Scorcher, Ghetts, Mercston, Mikill Pane and  Sam Sure – Powers

Davinche is set to release his brand new album ‘Powers’ where he had 2 weeks with 32 artists to create this project. The first video is a powerful track from three of Grime’s most influential MC’s Scorcher, Ghetts and Mercston who go back and forth over a dramatic instrumental from Davinche, whilst Mikill Pane intro’s the track with a spoken word delivery.

Devlin – Blow Your Mind ft. Maverick Sabre

Three years on since collaborating, Devlin and Maverick Sabre are back at it making beautiful music. ‘Blow Your Mind’ will be on Devlin’s forthcoming album ‘The Devil In,’ and shows Devlin rap in double time whilst Mavrick Sabre handles the hook soulfully like he does.

Reading Festival: Friday Review 2016

Reading Festival has to be one of my favourites, and that’s mainly because of the eclectic mix of music, and them always being at the forefront when it comes to supporting Grime and UK Rap artists such as Giggs, Fekky, Sneakbo.

Arriving on the Friday in the early evening, we only got a few hours to see some of the acts left on the first day. Entering the arena from behind the main stage we watched producer duo and brothers Disclosure who were on the main stage and opened with their hit ‘White Noise’. They went onto play their own tracks ‘F For You’ and ‘You & Me’ saying that “Reading Festival was the first festival me and Howard went too, that’s why I think this is going to be the best crowd we’ve ever played too, am I right?” The crowd were quick to scream their answers of yes adding to their excitement. As the sun set and we were in darkness, the lazers appeared across the sky from the stage with ‘Bang That’ being played out to the huge crowd.

As we passed the Dance Stage there was some heavy tunes and dirty basslines coming out of it, so naturally we entered and discovered the sounds of DJ/Producer duo Jack U also known singularly as Diplo and Skrillex. They banged out some heavy-duty tracks that you couldn’t help but skank out too, including their own track and one of my personal favourites, ‘Take You There’, Disclosure’s ‘You & Me’ (Flume Remix), and Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’. The energy in the tent was insane and they definitely did shut down their headline set on Friday in the Dance Tent.

Wiley was last up at the BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage and I managed to catch most of his set, he entered onto the stage spitting “I done a lot of tracks in the manor, E3 you can get the loud pack in the manor.” Scratchy then joined him on stage flowing over a classic grime instrumental ‘Creeper’ by Danny Weed bringing more energy to the stage with this track. Wiley moved onto ‘Can’t Go Wrong’ and more commercially known track ‘Wearing My Rolex’. Flowdan was brought out where the three went back to back over Preditah’s ‘Circles,’ and Rebound X ‘Rhythm N Gash’ where JME bounced out onto the stage also joining in on the mic. As the end of the night appeared and Wiley’s set was drawing to an end he announced, ““They said to shut it down, you know what we’re gonna do,” and left us with renditions of Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’ and BBK’s ‘Too Many Men’.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @MsBanks94 @BigFlowDan @KnoxBrown @MsEziEmela

Ms Banks – The Come Up

We’ve heard the news on the internet and social media about the forthcoming ‘The Intent’ movie, and now MS Banks has dropped the almighty first track off of the film with the visuals to boot! The video shows Ms Banks with blue hair and shows clips from the movie too, teasing us of what to expect. This is a real hard track, that shows off her lyrical skills and features a hook from Ayo Beatz.

Flowdan – Horror Show Style

Grime veteran Flowdan delivers the visuals for ‘Horror Show Style.’ The video matches the name of the track perfectly, with girls dressed up as in if a horror film, whilst Flowdan is in a suit and also black tracksuit. The beat has a repetitive rolling drum sound throughout, in which Flowdan delivers his bars over.

Knox Brown ft. Anderson Paak – No Slaves

Birmingham producer and vocalist Known Brown drops the audio to track ‘No Slaves’ featuring American rapper Anderson Paak. This is taken from Knox’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Searching’ out August 5th. The tracks statement is powerful and unites gospel, soul and dub, highlighted by Knox’s soulful vocals and Paak’s incisive verse.

British Nigeran singer Ezi Emela returns with track ‘No Lele’ which was given it’s radio premiere by DJ Target. This is going to be on her forthcoming EP, and sees the singer in a rebellious and defiant mood, addressing her detractors and naysayers with strong and confident lyrics.
