Pixies Tracks Of The Week @SafoneMadone @CapoLee100 @Dapzonthemap @Jhus @realmostack @StashPeso

Safone x Capo Lee – Gyal From Brum

This is a Birmingham to London link up from two of Grime’s heavy hitters Safone and Capo Lee for ‘Gyal From Brum,’ a flip on Safone’s now Grime classic track ‘She Wants A Man From Brum.’ Both emcee’s take turns, trading bars about swagging and wanting a gyal from Brum! This tune is going to bang at raves and festivals this Summer for sure as it’s a high energy bassline driven track, with Capo Lee and Safone throwing down some slick dance moves too.

Dapz On The Map – Mini Valet

West Bromwich/Birmingham artist Dapz On The Map brings us a strong new track ‘Mini Valet’ talking about his rise in the industry, following his own path, and how now he performs in the 02 with fans queuing to get in. It’s a motivational, inspirational track and shows how by putting in the work you can achieve what you set out to.

J Hus – Common Sense

‘Common Sense’ is the third track release from J Hus’ forthcoming album of the same name which will be released on 12th May, and sees previous bangers such as ‘Friendly’ and ‘Did You See’ on the album as well as a host of new material with features from Mist, Mostack and more. ‘Common Sense’ has a jazzy, live band natural feel to the track, and sees J Hus reflecting on things happening around him.

Mostack – Ussy Ussy

Mostack drops a vibrant new track ‘Ussy Ussy’ the first offering from his forthcoming new mixtape ‘High Street Kid’ out on the 2nd June. It’s another straight up banger, and the visuals show the North London artist out in LA with the Hollywood sign in the background and also shots in the UK too as he talks about his girl.

Stash Peso – Glow

Stonebridge rapper Stash Peso drops ‘Glow’ in the lead up to his forthcoming EP ‘Shine’. It’s a song written from a personal place about embracing your glow, and not listening to others. It shows off Stash’s unorthodox style, wordplay and impressive lyrical flow captivating his listeners as he sings and raps over the production.

Pixies Track Of The Week @JHus @bigdabbla @MRGOLDIE @LoickEssien @JusRival

J Hus – Did You See

J Hus brings a feel-good vibe to his new track ‘Did You See’ in his signature style over a JAE5 production. This brand new track will be on on his forthcoming debut album out later this year on Black Butter Records.

 

Dabbla – Arcane

UK Hip-Hop artist Dabbla has unleashed a visual from his project with DJ Frosty ‘Chapsville.’ He brings us quite a dark and sinister video for ‘Arcane’ matching the theme of the track which is produced by Elliot Yorke.

Goldie – I Adore You

Bit of Drum & Bass here courtesy of the legendary Goldie. This is his first single taken from his forthcoming album ‘The Journey Man’, out June 16th and comes complete with a heartwarming video.

Loick Essien – Foolish

Loick Essien is one of the best UK R&B singers, and this track will help you understand why. Taken from his ‘Terminal 5’ mixtape which dropped in Sep 2016, we now get the video to match which sees him with a special lady.

Rival – State Of Rivz

Rival continues his BISC series, this week giving us ‘State Of Rivz.’ The series is a free track every week inspired by a biscuit, this week it’s the Iced Gem. It’s an inspirational, motivational track. Click play below and have a listen.

The Sounds Of UK Rap @Nines1ace @jhus @Santandave1 @A2Artist @ClueOfficial @SeeJay100Music

Nines ft. J Hus – High Roller

North West London rapper Nines who recently has signed a deal with XL Records has just released the track listing for his long-awaited album ‘One Foot Out’, and I couldn’t be happier having been a fan of Nines for years. He dropped the tracklisting on his Instagram, which included some hot features such as Akala, Tiggs Da Author and more.

Before this though Nines unleashed his first visual taken from the album and the first single ‘High Roller’ ft. J Hus. It gives a glimpse into the lives of the artists from where they have come from to where they are now and are headed; from riding behind the wheels of flash cars to estates and fancy flats and dark streets, and getting fitted for suits.

Clue – Game Over

Clue’s work rate is mad and second to none right now, as he keeps dropping video after video. The distinctive-voiced, South London rapper has a message for anyone going up against him this year, it will be ‘Game Over.’ This is another one for the streets and sees him going hard over a sinister beat produced by 5ive & Mazza, fitting his menacing lyrics perfectly, “Don’t watch me watch the man on your shoulder. Keep your name out my mouth like an ulcer.” Clue’s flow is now perfected and he’s ready to take the UK Rap world by charge with his rawness and ability to tell real life stories through his lyrics. His forthcoming E.P ‘Return Of The Ghost’ (out in May) will hopefully catapult him into success which he deserves.

SeeJay100 ft. TE DNESS – Pretty Girls

SeeJay100 has been making quite a name for himself in the UK Rap scene with his run of bangers and working with the likes of highly-rated MC’s such as Cadet, Big Tobz, Bonkaz and Stormzy. Now he joins forces with one of the hottest underground rappers of the moment TE DNESS for ‘Pretty Girls.’ It’s a sharp, infectious track coupled with a catchy hook, with the two rappers spitting their way through about their love for females. This is just the start of 2017 for Seejay100 though as he already has his new single to follow up this track with, and I believe that he will be marking a mark this year.

Dave & J Hus – Samantha

Both these artists are representing the underground scene tremendously right now, and this collaboration proves why they are the UK’s brightest artists about at the moment. ‘Samantha’ shows off Dave’s skills not only as a lyrical don, but also on the keys on this melodic track produced by Jae5. The introduction to the video changes from cups of tea, to books, lights, a church, and to an estate, leaving the aesthesis to contrast yet coincide at the same time. It’s a cocky track from Dave and J Hus, but why shouldn’t it be? Dave raps, “We sent your man to the shop, what do you mean? He ain’t ever made it rain, your man is a fraud, your boyfriend’s living a lie, you’re kind of like Rachel Zane.” He’s definitely mixing gentlemen with gangster.

A2 – Lowest Key

Taken from his ‘More Sleep 2’ EP out on Dec 16, A2 keeps things popping with his brand new visuals to ‘Lowest Key’ taking us on quite a trippy journey as we enter into his world. As you press play you move between a hotel room, a train journey and him walking at night with bright lights ahead. The track itself is mysterious and moody and this is reflected in the dark visuals. The vibe is laid-back and hazy and switches between A2 signing and rapping, “You say you’re into energies and planets, I’m still tryna find a balance, and you think the solar systems got the answers. I can rule the world it ain’t a challenge, trust me baby I can manage.” The lyrics like the video leave us in a kind of meditative, surreal state.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @KreptandKonan @AR15UK @NeroUK @JHusMusic @KingPMoney

Krept & Konan – “F.W.T.S”

As their debut album is fast approaching with its release in just over a month on July 6, South London UK rap stars Krept & Konan drop another video”‘F.W.T.S”. We will get two versions of this track though as the official one on the album – unlike this video – will feature Boy Better Know’s Skepta. For this track they take it more back to their roots and serve the streets.

 AR15 Presents ‘Out In The Jungle’ ft Squeeks, Sneakbo, Dubz, Stormzy & Bigz

The AR15 mixtape is due to be one of the biggest releases of the year and features a whole host of the UK’s best rappers such as Skepta, Stormzy, Kano, Devlin, Wretch 32, Chip and many more. This is the second track to be heard from the tape and features an all-star cast with Squeeks, Sneakbo, Dubz, Stormzy & Bigz going verse for verse over a Nana Rouges produced haunting beat.

Nero – “Dark Skies”

Electronic music trio Nero drop a new track off their forthcoming highly anticipated album Between II Worlds. “Dark Skies” is the fourth track to be heard, and fans of Nero who have witnessed their live sets will recognise it as they have been playing it for a few years now. Full of metallic synths and vivid subs it has an eerie deposition, while still sounding futuristic. The album arrives August 28.

J Hus – “Lean & Bop”

You’ve heard this track on the radio after the audio was unleashed and it’s safe to say this is one of the biggest tunes of the year for many. Now “Lean & Bop” has a video and it features some well-known faces such as G Frsh, Krept & Konan and Tim Westwood who J Hus teaches how to do the dance too. The feel-good anthem features Doccydocs and is going to be heard everywhere this summer.

P Money – ‘My Lingo’

OGz P Money keeps up the good work rate and drops a new visual for “My Lingo” where he talks some home truths and encourages people to do better. The Thomas Mellor produced track is a cut from his forthcoming mixtape ‘Money Over Everything’ which is released on June 28th.

Pixie’s Tracks Of The Week (@DeliBricks) (@NewhamGenerals) (@JHusMusic) (@Stormzy1) (@IsaiahDreads)

This week I pick five of my hottest tracks from last week from some old skool G’s to some up and coming MC’s.

Deli Bricks ft Corleone & Snap Capone – Fly Birds

UK underground rap at it’s finest with the first track to be heard from Deli Bricks new forthcoming mixtape ‘Finessin’ which is out 30th March. He’s joined by two hard barrers Corleone and Snap Capone for a street track. All three bring different elements and flows to the track making it one to bang out loud.

Newham Generals – Levels

A heavy, grimey, bassline track that I heard they played with My Nu Leng one of the producers for the track at Fabric on Friday setting the club alight. D Double E & Footsie show why they are Grime’s General’s as they pack the tune full of ad libs and punch lines.

J Hus – No Lie

J Hus has quite a buzz around his name at the moment and I myself named him as one to watch out for this year. His style blends Afrobeats and Rap and is a sound so fresh that people can’t seem to get enough of it. ‘No Lie’ is a pretty catchy track too that I can hear going off in a dance.

Stormzy – Know Me From

Stormzy who is everybody’s favourite MC and is set to cause some serious damage to the UK music scene. He returns with his debut single ‘Know Me From’ produced by Z Dot and featuring his mum in the video. He is just sick, no more needs to be said.

Isaiah Dreads ft C4 – Foolish

This upcoming, one to watch fresh Grime MC by the name of Isaiah Dreads is going to be a problem. At just 17-years old and from Dorset he brings something new to the Grime scene, his journey and lyrics. ‘Wait For Me’ produced by Preditah is a bouncy, go follow your dreams kind of track. He shows off his exceptional flow here too.

One To Watch: J Hus (@JHusMusic)

J Hus

J Hus

J Hus is a name you should start to be hearing more often, a lot of eyes and ears are on him this year. He’s from Newham, East London and has had a lot of artists already telling us to watch out for him such as Fekky. He’s released freestyles on all the big ‘urban’ channels most recently an SBTV Warm Up, last year saw him record a Street Heat with Link Up TV, and a GRM Daily Rated. His unique style is perhaps what might draw you to him, and the fact his name is all over Twitter, but it’s his controversy, flow and wordplay that made him me a fan straight away. Keep an eye on this talent…
