Pixies Tracks Of The Week @stefflondon @Skepta @officialdpower @bignarstie @BigTobzsf

Stefflon Don – 16 Shots

Stefflon Don drops another visual off her recently released highly-rated mixtape ‘Real Ting’. She heads to Jamaica to save her mother in the video self-directed by the Don herself alongside Luke Biggins. ’16 Shots’ showcases her Jamaican roots with a dancehall-style beat and patois tinged lyrics.

Skepta – No Security 

Skepta dropped this track last year on Halloween and now we get the slick new video to match the greazy track along with a brand new verse too. Skepta fires shots at his enemies whilst taking on different outfit changes and different visual shots going between him and his crew dancing in a room with plaques on the wall, Skeppy on a table with men clad in suits and much more. Check it out for yourself.

D Power ft. Footsie – Shelly

D Power and Footsie, two Grime scene veterans join for a track trading bars about being two of the scenes top spitters. D Power says, “‘Shelly’ is about having the hardest lyrics and being able to last ANY clash, but also having bars that can buss up a club! That’s our aim for this track right here.” Produced also by Footsie, the two take to derelict settings for the video which you can watch below.

Big Narstie – They Don’t Know ft. Xaviour

Brixton emcee Big Narstie shows off his softer side on his brand new single ‘They Don’t Know’ ft. Xaviour taken from his forthcoming album release this Summer. Grime’s unofficial king of comedy shows he really can get deep and bear his soul to us, which is different to the man we normally see also demonstrating his lyrical talent.

Big Tobz ft. Cadet, TE dness, Not3s – Addison Lee Remix

Not3s track ‘Addison Lee’ was so popular that three wicked rappers have decided to come together for a remix, continuing the heat on this track. Big Tobz, Cadet and TE dness join to throw down some fire, mischievous lyrics, mashing up this huge new remix.

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 @LittleTorment @Sneakbo @stefflondon @NafeSmallz @shizzmcnaughty @140Aks @CapoLee100

Little Torment 4am In The Streets

Little Torment has been quiet recently, bar his track on Fumez The Engineer’s mixtape, so it’s good to see him drop this new one “4am In The Streets”. This is taken from his Behind Closed Doors II mixtape, and proves the South Londoner spitter has not lost his edge, but has more fire in his belly.

Sneakbo & Steff London – Pull Up

This isn’t the first time Brixton’s Sneakbo and Steff London have collaborated and it probably won’t be the last either. “Pull Up” is the new one from the pair and they both bring the heat to this Hydrolix produced track. Sneakbo’s flow and bars compliment Steff’s. This tune’s is too hard!

Nafe Smallz – Digits

Luton based artist Nafe Smallz has just come back off tour with Future in America. Fresh off the back of this, he keeps things current remixing Young Thug’s “Digits”, giving it his own adaption of the track.

Shizz Mcnaughty and 140Aks ft. Allstars – Wickedest Sound Remix

Shizz Mcnaughty and 140Aks dropped the original “Wickedest Sound” track at the beginning of Feb, and after the track has done really well, have decided to give it an Allstar remix. Produced by Ras Eye and 10 Billion Dreams, the remix has been gifted by Blittz, Mercston, Izzie Gibbs and Capo Lee.

Capo Lee ft. P Money, Footsie & President T – Liff Remix

Capo Lee enlists fellow Grime MC’s and some of the best in the game too to give their take for the “Liff Remix”. OGz P Money is joined by Newham Generals Footsie and Meridian Crew’s President T.

Kurupt FM presents Champagne Steam Rooms – Koko 04/02/16 @KuruptFM

West London stand up! Or should I say Camden stand Up?

Kurupt FM the pirate radio station crew known for their comedy show on BBC Three People Just Do Nothing with its second series complete last year, took to Koko for their headline showChampagne Steamrooms. With shows up and down the country, they returned to their home of London on Thursday evening to a sold out show.

IMG_1601

Foundation (Sticky & Scott Garcia) kicked off the night, warming up things nicely with a rotation of some of the most banging Garage tunes known to mankind and host DR. Psycho bringing the energy to the half full crowd who had turned up nice and early, getting their positions ready for the main act.

Big Narstie the bass controller was up next and got the crowd bubbling nicely with his hyped bars. He performed tracks such as ‘Gas The Pipe’ and new track ‘When The Bassline Drops’ ft. Craig David. The DJ also dropped classic tracks such as ‘Rhythm N Gash’ by Rebound X.

IMG_1597

Chabuddy G appeared on the screen on stage, and then popped up on the balcony to the left looking dapper in an all-white suit and obviously a bottle of champagne in his hand. He announced that there was going to be a special guest, making everyone wonder who, then introducing himself as the special guest. Only Kurupt could get away with this! DJ Steves was another funny arrival as he swung down from the ceiling above the stage, quite comically on a broken harness. Steves took to his spot behind the decks and began dropping some heavy duty Garage tunes and the whole crowd started to rave.

The Dancehall set in the middle gave a nice, relaxed feeling after the Garage tunes and skanking out (yes by me too), and allowed our weary feet to rest a bit. Decoy did a good job of curating the set with Damian Marley’s ‘Welcome To Jamrock’ playing and the crowd chanting “Welcome To Camden” with what seemed like every single person in the crowd getting involved.

IMG_1615

The highlights of the night were when the special guests started to arrive on the stage. Garage favourites DJ Luck & MC Neat appeared first performing classic tune ‘With A Little Bit Of Luck’. Grime Gods Newham Generals were next with timeless track ‘Hard’. After Grindah’s own attempt at performing ‘Shut Up’, Stormzy came to take the weight off his shoulders and bring the energy bouncing about on stage.

The boys ended the night with everyone from the night who performed joining them on stage for a crowded performance of ‘Get Out The Way’, packed full of energy and vibes.

IMG_1606

Kurupt FM have proved again that even though they are every bit comical, they need to be taken seriously. They have risen through the ranks and portrayed a culture to places unseen before. They aren’t just doing it for themselves; they are doing it for everyone involved.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @JusRival @SOLARGE_E300 @officialAvelino @Espa @MyNuLeng @NewhamGenerals @BladeMusic

Rival x So Large – Voices

East London MC, Rival has been on the road recently touring with Ghetts and The Skints in doing so has been busy and making his presence known. He’s joined forces with fellow East London’s So Large for “Voices”, with them both exchanging hot verses. They deliver fiery bars with energy over a heavyweight, vocal-led instrumental from Rude Kid. This is definitely one of my favourite grime tracks of the year.

Avelino – Money Over Everything

North London’s Avelino is destined for big things in the world of UK rap, which is currently at it’s healthiest stage ever. His music sees reflective lyrics, joined with experimental and often melodic productions. For his new track “Money Over Everything” which samples Wretch 32’s famous F64, Avelino tells Complex UK “It’s sick to have him jump on the tune, as well. ‘M.O.E’ is a song that, hopefully, you can turn up to but lyrically, it’s me admitting that I’m aware of our ignorance but it’s just the way it is .”

Espa – Pray For Me [My Nu Leng Remix]

Espa dropped her “Pray For Me” track back in May which saw the London singer show a vulnerability to her, over a garage beat reminiscent of from the 90’s. Now production duo My Nu Leng have given it the remix treatment taking it down a darker, bass heavy route.

Newham Generals ft Wiley – Scars

Footsie released his Scars EP via Butterz on vinyl earlier this year with the track originally being released in 2005 The classic Grime tune has now been given visuals, fitting the era it was originally made in, with memorabilia such as RWD magazine covers, Nokia 7600s, Lord OF The Decks DVDs and more. With bars from Newham Generals and Wiley this is one to keep in your music catalogue forever.

Blade Brown ft. Tigger Da Author – Drug Dealer

Blade Brown certainly did it big for his “Drug Dealer” video which is a favourite track amongst his fans off his Bags & Boxes 3 mixtape. Shooting the video in LA, we see Blade Brown with a luxurious car on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, also hitting the beach with his lady. See you can spot in the video as it includes celebrities such as Floyd Mayweather.

Pixie’s Tracks Of The Week (@Skepta) (@Footsie) (@Sneakbo) (@ArdAdz) (@ShoShallow) (@_BushObama )

From last week here are the 5 best tracks, which of course includes Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’ and Sneakbo’s mixtape ‘JetSkiWave 2’ with both releases shutting the internet down …

 Skepta – Shutdown

Of course this has to be the biggest track from last week. With pretty much no lead up to it, Skepta premiered his brand new track ‘Shutdown’ on The Fader. His name has the biggest hype around it at the moment, from shows in New York to joining Kanye West on stage with other Grime artists at the Brits, and now reportedly working with Kanye in the studio. This will be on his forthcoming ‘Konnichiwa’ album where we can expect bigger and better music still to come.

Footsie – Straight Loco

Another Grime don is next up and that is Footsie from the Newham Generals, who released this track as a solo one. ‘Straight Loco’ brings a hard, Grime beat produced by G Jones allowing Footsie to flow in his style known to most Grime heads. This is the 2nd release from his forthcoming project, so keep your eyes and ears locked…

Sneakbo – Rap Like Dat ft Grizzy & Frass

So Sneakbo dropped his ‘JetSkiWave 2’ mixtape on Saturday hosted by the veteran US DJ Whoo Kid and setting the internet alight with it also trending on Twitter. This tape saw fans in the likes of Wretch 32, Chip, Krept and more all tweeting it. ‘Rap Like Dat’ video also dropped a few days before from the tape warming up his fans for the full 22 track tape. Watch the video below and download the mixtape by clicking here

Ard Adz & Sho Shallow ft Jaja Soze – Thoughts

Haven’t heard much from Brixton’s Ard Adz & Sho Shallow from a while, but the two rappers return with this one featuring PDC’s Jaja Soze for ‘Thoughts’. This is an emotive, deep track with all three spitting a verse each about the streets in Brixton where they are all from and their life experiences. They all complete each other with their varied deliveries but similar subjects.

Bush ft Benny Banks – Own Path

Bush is a rapper that’s new to my ears. I came across him after the release of his debut mixtape ‘Driven 2 Success’ which dropped on 23rd February. ‘Own Path’ is the 3rd video release from the project and sees him dropping some motivational bars over a melodic beat. Benny Banks drops a hard verse for Bush’s track adding more inspiration to the track. These two make a sick team! Download Bush – Driven 2 Success by clicking here
