Pixies Tracks Of The Week

Lixo ft. Trim – Writers Block

This track is unusual, creative and wonderful. Produced by Lixo who provides an airy, spaced out, chilled beat with twists and tribal elements, which allows one of Grime’s finest lyricists Trim to put his touch to it.

Sheffield producer duo Sticky Blood are known for their genre defying music, and they have come up  once again with a straight up banger, collaborating on the production with JiKay (All Trap Music/Hot Damn) and enlisting veteran MC and Boy Better Know member Frisco for their brand new track ‘Oh My Days’.

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.

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.

Diesle ft Frisco & Demolition Man – Who Can Draw

Diesle is gearing up to release his debut album ‘Zion’ and teams up with Boy Better Know’s Frisco and Demolition Man for the first single ‘Who Can’ produced by King Yoof. Filled with jungle and reggae vibes, the two London MC’s bring their raw lyrics to the track and Demolition Man blesses the hook and his verse with his own different flavour. This is just a taster of what to expect from the ‘Zion’ album.

Kyle Lettman ft. Coco Dupree – Matter Of Time

‘Matter Of Time’ is the third track to be heard off Kyle Lettman’s stunning new EP ‘Under Construction’ released on the 27th November. It sees Kyle take it back to the slow jams era of R&B we all know and love from the 90’s. The singer/songwriter is known and loved for this style, and this one shows off the old skool R&B vibe perfectly, with Coco and Kyle joining and bringing a different flavour to the track.

Chase & Status ft. Bonkaz – Wha Gwarn (London Bars Vol III)

This is the third video release from Chase & Status in their London Bars series, and this time they chose a relatively newcomer to the game Bonkaz. Bonkaz follows in Frisco and Giggs footsteps dropping some heavyweight bars over a bass riddled track shot at Birthdays in East London, along with other locations. Bonkaz shows a more aggressive persona for ‘Wha Gwarn’ and his lyrics hit hard.

Tom Prior x Yungen x Squeeks – White Dress

Singer Tom Prior enlists two rappers South London’s Yungen and North London’s Squeeks for his new track ‘White Dress’ where they talk about women they see a future with. It’s definitely aimed more for the female audience and the rappers work really well with Tom’s vocals. The black and white visuals show Yungen and Squeeks in a house in two different rooms with two ladies, talking from the heart and Tom standing alone singing.

Wiley – 25 MCs

Wiley dropped the audio to 25 MCs in June and this week he released the visuals to accompany it. Produced by one of Grime’s best producers Swifta Beater its braggadocious but for a reason, as Wiley is the Godfather he reinstates his position on this track as the leader. It’s shot at his famous Grime night Eskimo Dance and features cameos of Grime’s biggest stars.

Chase & Status ft. Frisco – Funny

After announcing their London Bars series which will be released on their label MTA Records, Chase & Status dropped the first track from the series titled “Funny” featuring Boy Better Know’s Frisco.

Craig David x Big Narstie – When The Bassline Drops

Kurupt FM seemed to have kindled a musical bond between Craig David and Big Narstie when they went on 1Xtra for their Sixty Minutes Live session. The two clearly hit it off and went straight into the studio to record a track together. Their both legends in their own right in different areas of dance music and their new tune “When The Bassline Drops” is an absolute banger. It’s got an old skool garage vibe filled with Craig’s smooth vocals and Narstie’s heavy lyricism.

Bonkaz – You Don’t Know

Bonkaz relives the Grime culture he grew up in on his new track “You Don’t Know, sampling one of Grime’s most influential MC’s Dizzee Rascal’s track “Bonkaz”. He pays homage to Kano, More Fire Crew and Channel U amongst others. The video shows a more fun and light-hearted side to the Croydon-born MC and he couldn’t have picked a better-named tune to sample!

Scrufizzer – Rapid Freestyle

Scrufizzer is one of Grime’s fastest flowing lyricist and is impeccable at it. He takes on Rapid’s instrumental to drop nothing but hard bars, repping his ends West London too.

Nero continue to show us their diversity with this brand new track, the fourth cut to be heard from their forthcoming album Between II Worlds where they explore the house territory. The vocals from Alana are beautiful and are really powerful on this track, sitting nicely with the piano hook, thunderous bass and coarse synths. The album is out on August 28 so if you like what your hearing stay tuned for that.
