Lotto Boyzz – No Don Remix ft. Chip & Not3s

Birmingham’s Lotto Boyzz drop the wavy new video for their remix of ‘No Don’ which features one of the UK’s hardest lyricists Chip, and artist Not3s who brings his singing touch to the track. ‘No Don’ has already been a smash across the rave, radio and festival circuit for the boys, and now the remix is only due to ramp the track up to a higher level.

 Hardy Caprio – Super Soaker

After the success of ‘Unsigned,’ Hardy Caprio brings us ‘Super Soaker,’ a vibesy, fun-filled, summer track. The Croydon emcee is joined by his boys and lots of gal at a pool party having a drink up, he even puts henny in his super soaker. He spits some cheeky lyrics in this one which sees cameos from Young T & Bugsey and One Acen.

The Heavytrackerz – Control ft. JME, P Money, Donae’O and Kurt

Production outfit The Heavytrackerz made up of duo Tank and Tee bring to you their video for ‘Control’ taken from their debut album ‘Odyssey’ released this week. The video sees Grime royalty JME & P Money take control of the mic duties for the track and Donae’O come in powerfully singing about being victorious. It’s a commanding and authoritative track that makes you feel powerful after listening.

Jorja Smith x Preditah – On My Mind

British singer Jorja Smith joins forces with Birmingham producer Preditah for ‘On My Mind’ for a UKG banger which sees her effortlessly sings over the 2-step beat. The video shows Jorja bouncing to the music in a underground car park, with another setting in a tower block flat with mockumentary garage crew Kurupt FM.

Etta Bond – Addiction

Kick back and relax and zone out to the beautiful soul sound of Etta Bond’s new one ‘Addiction’. This is an intimate track, with the visuals matching the tone, showing Etta getting her head shaved and smoking a joint. It’s soothing, beautiful and calm, just like Etta herself.

Grim Sickers ft. JME – Kane

Grim Sickers has been building the respect of his peers in the game since appearing on LOTM V, and it’s no wonder why as he is hard working and lyrically his bars are effortless and very distinctive. He dropped the video to his new remix to track ‘Kane’ this week which features BBK’s JME and is produced by Swifta Beater. Mike Skinner & Despa have picked up on the track and have signed it to their new label.

D Double E – How I Like It

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.

Nottingham MC Snowy’s work rate is impeccable and for this track he joins up with Leicester producer Massappeals for ‘Do’s & Donts’ who creates Snowy a minimal but hard track.

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.

img_0404

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 @Duskymusic @Wileyupdates @Dapzonthemap @RayBlk_ @Prez_T @JCLARKE_GHETTS @Rudekidmusic

Dusky ft. Wiley – Sort It Out Sharon

As Dusky prepares to release his forthcoming album ‘Outer’ we hear a brand new track taken from it ‘Sort It Out Sharon’. It features the Godfather of Grime Wiley, and blends techno with Grime and 93’ rave music. Dusky bring an emergence of genres for this one making it sound rather futuristic, with Wiley flowing effortlessly over the Dance music duo’s production.

Dapz On The Map – Champion Champion

West Bromwich’s Dapz On The Map is back at it again with a brilliant new track full of passion, hunger and emotion for ‘Champion Champion’. He eases us into the track with his soulful voice, and makes us listen to his lyrics full of greatness and power on a Thomas Mellor produced beat.

Ray Blk ft. Stormzy – My Hood

Singer Ray Blk releases the visuals to her brilliant new track ‘My Hood’ which has been getting a lot of love, “Ray BLK said of the video to ‘Dazed‘ magazine, “I’ve been getting older, I’ve been realising that where I’m from is not a very nice place, to put it quite plainly. When I was younger, growing up, you don’t really realise what’s going on around you. I was saying to one of my friends, every day I’d see a police car, every day I’d hear sirens…
“But I also saw the beauty in where I’m from, like the people, the culture, so there’s good and bad and that’s what I wanted to speak about in the song.”

President T ft. JME – House & Pop

“Real veterans will do real veteran things” President T says on the intro to his Splurgeboys produced brand new track ‘House & Pop’, and that’s exactly what happens when him and JME start spitting their bars.

Ghetts & Rude Kid – Savage

Ghetts and Rude Kid drop a brilliant new video ‘Savage’ from the soundtrack of the forthcoming ‘The Intent’ film. It features footage from the film with cameos from Fekky and Femi Oyeniran, and shows Ghetts in a state of power in the cinematic visual.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @JorjaSmith @LethalBizzle @ThisIsAngel @LittleTorment @iamSaintP @TheReal_PK @Lyrical_Strally @StickyBloodUK

Jorja Smith – Blue Lights

There has been a vastly notable spread of impressive female vocalist emerging recently and Jorja Smith is one to add to them. The 18 year old singer released the visuals to her debut single ‘Blue Lights’ and has set the internet alight with this stunning track and her enthralling vocals. She sings in ‘Blue Lights’ about what she sees going on around her, sampling Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Sirens’ a song she describe as “the beginning of my journey,” she then tells the person she’s talking about to run.

Lethal Bizzle ft. JME & Face – BOX

Lethal Bizzle is back with another Diztortion production and enlists one of his old Fire Camp members Face & Boy Better Know’s JME for his hot new single BOX, which is set to top the charts. The video set in a boxing gym has a comical side and makes it fun to watch. It also matches the video’s energy and theme to the track. You can see this is going to be an anthem for the workouts, summertime and festivals.

Angel ft. Haile – Rudeboy

Angel is kicking off 2016 by reminding us he’s still a ‘Rudeboy’ with his brand new single featuring WSTRN’s Haile who lends him accompanying vocals to the hook. It’s great to see Angel back and fresh with a nice new banger that we are going to be hearing a lot of on the radio and clubs. He’s been in the States working with Grammy award winning producer Swizz Beats among others, and we’re likely to see his debut album drop this year too.

Little Torment – So Many Nights

We haven’t heard too much of the South London rapper Little Torment recently, so it’s good to see some new visuals from him. ‘So Many Nights’ comes from Fumez The Engineer’s forthcoming ‘The Mix-tape’ which drops on March 13th and sees other UK artists on it such as Cadet, MS Banks, Joe Black and many more. Torment takes a old skool sounding beat wrapped with a soulful melody in a studio video.

YGG – Don’t Talk Like That

YGG follow up their debut single ‘Okay’ with this banger ‘Don’t Like That’ with Empra on the production. The North West London Grime trio made up of Lyrical Strally, PK & Saint P drop some sizzling bars infused with wordplay. This track is harder than the previous one and will definitely be turning heads and get people skanking out on the dancefloor.

Sticky Blood ft. Snowy & Yxngz – Garn Again

Sticky Blood are the unstoppable duo from Sheffield who are literally putting out release after release and their newest one ‘Garn Again’ is a straight up riddim. With meaty punchlines from Snowy who gives nods to the Grime scenes Godfathers and Yxngz who offers an harmonious hook and slips into the role of an MC adding a verse at the end, it’s a R&G track you’ll not want to stop playing.

Found Presents: Ceremony Festival [Review]

Returning to Finsbury Park for it’s second year on Saturday 12th September, Ceremony Festival was the second to last of five festivals from promoters Found and along with United Festival closed Summer 2015.

GPZTHkc9OJbF7-sWt5qcp-z5N83S1q5_X1obopY4RX4

Arriving at 4pm I headed to the Tropical tent where I spent most of the evening, as this was predominately Grime. When I had arrived Logan Sama was just stepping off and Dubstep/Grime DJ Plastican was coming on with an MC who is making a name for himself right now, Jamz. He started off with some old skool garage tracks such as Wookie, then moved into old skool Grime and Dubstep.

We then headed next door to the Heritage tent to catch some old skool garage from a figurehead of the scene, Matt Jam Lamont who had MC Kie on his set hosting. The two had the whole packed tent raving and the atmosphere was like taking it back to early 2000’s, packed full of good vibes.

The next hour or so was spent in the VIP Sports Banger Area which was hosted by sportswear’s brand Sports Banger. Artwork played a banging 80’s set, with some club classics that got the VIP area all singing and dancing along. This proved a hit for everyone here and was a perfect set to end the last festival of the Summer.

We then headed to catch Birmingham born brothers producer Preditah, and MC C4 who hosted the set. Preditah started off with some light house music, moving into Garage and then Grime, playing some classic old skool Grime such as ‘Pow’ and JME’s ‘Man Don’t Care’.

The two artists everyone had been waiting for were next up in the Tropical Tent; Skepta and JME from Boy Better Know. They were joined by DJ Maximum, Shorty, Frisco and Jammer for their set which was a full hour long. The tent was packed to capacity and everyone was chanting their lyrics as they filled the arena with vibes and energy performing tracks such as ‘It Ain’t Safe’, ‘Serious’, some old skool ‘Blacklisted’ and of course Skeppy’s latest hit ‘That’s Not Me’.

JME

Slimzee switched over next on the Tropical tent and repped for the old skool Grime generation whilst having MC’s such as Jamz, Elfz and Flirta D on his set to host. We headed to the 4,500 capacity main stage last to catch a bit of Bronx born The Martinez Brothers who had everyone in the crowd in a trance playing innovative house and trance.

The organisers Found have done a spectacular job with Ceremony, especially with the sound levels which I expected to be quite low, but went above my expectations. The venue was a great size and the tents were all easy to find and nice and close to each other. I’ll definitely be back next year.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @officialAvelino @Bonkaz @lilnastyuk @iAmShakka @JMEBBK @SectionBoyz_ @DevlinOfficial

Bonkaz & Avelino – Shine

Bonkaz and Avelino have generated a lot of heat in the music world this year with their releases individually. The two new generation artists are serious ones to watch and if you haven’t taken note already, do now! The track shows off both of their hard, lyrical ability as they go back to back effortlessly over an Acekeyz produced hip hop beat.

Lil Nasty – Regardless

East London Grime MC Lil Nasty has dropped quite a lot of new music this year keeping the heat on his name. He continues to bring the fire after the release of mixtape ‘100 Rounds’ this summer with new single ‘Regardless’, which is produced by another big name in Grime Sir Spryo. Nasty goes in on this track where he talks about making it ‘Regardless’ in music, it’s a kind of self motivational track.

 

Shakka & JME – Say Nada

A song about a break-up joins singer/songwriter Shakka with Boy Better Know’s JME. Shakka shows conflicting emotion in this song where he talks about finding a freak who likes ‘tasty meat’, whilst on the flip side dealing with the heartbreak alone on his house. This is his first single to be released via label Pitched Up who he has just signed with, and will be on his third forthcoming EP ‘Lost Boys’.

Section Boyz – Lock Arff

London based rap crew Section Boyz who this year have created a big name for themselves, and will continue to rise drop a brand new video for single ‘Lock Arff’. The menacing lyrics and delivery from the crew are carried over a threatening bass led production. They have established themselves through their unique flows and rhymes, and are gearing up for the release of their debut album ‘Don’t Panic’ out September 18th.

Term & Rachet ft. Devlin – Corned Beef City

Old skool Grime MC Devlin is back with brand new track ‘Corned Beef City’ with producers Term & Rachet. He delivers intense bars over the heavy production. We haven’t heard that much from Devlin recently, and it seems the reason why is because the producers are working with Devlin on his third studio album. That is definitely something to look forward too!
