Pixies Tracks Of The Week @LadyLykez @StickyBloodUK @chaseandstatus @IamMassappeals @Swissworld @AshelyWalters82 @OfficialSoSolid

Lady Lykez – What Are Those!

Lady Lykez takes to the streets of London, Oxford St with DJ Melody Kane for a fun-filled video for new track ‘What Are Those!’ It features a verse from a familiar face from Fire Camp, Face who proceeds to give the track a different edge to it. It’s full of humour and clever wordplay and is co-produced by Lykez herself and Elliot Bradley.

Sticky Blood ft. LDizz – Hop In The Place

Go-to producers Sticky Blood who hail from Sheffield drop a brand new track ‘Hop In The Place’ ft. another Steel City representative LDizz. The new generation Grime MC brings an anthemic chorus and melodic flows coupled with the Grime x Trap vibes and deep bass it unites for one heavy, summertime track.

Chase & Status ft. Novelist – NRG

We heard the audio of this track back in April, and now we get the visuals to boot of the high octane ‘NRG’ track. The electronic music duo are joined by South London Grime MC Novelist who powers through the track with confidence and fire. You’ll be able to catch this on Chase & Status  fourth studio forthcoming album. Until then watch the intense video below.

Massappeals ft. Mez – Wheel

Midlands producer Massappeals is on a mission to bring out tracks with Midlands based MC’s. The first one to be released from this is ‘Wheel’ and features an exciting MC, Mez from Nottingham who adds his energetic flows and mean lyrics to the already hype, and soon to be club banger. Watch out from more of these tracks from Massappeals to come with artists such as Snowy.

So Solid ft. Swiss, Asher D, Mega – Baking

So Solid veterans Swiss, Asher D and Mega join together for new track ‘Baking.’ The three drops some solid bars with unmatchable flows over a Dexplicit produced beat. Watch the energetic video to the catchy track below.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @PotterPayper @MaverickSabre @Bonkaz @Novelist @UncleMez @Sneakbo @Stefflondon @FekkyOfficial @Blademusic

Potter Payper ft. Maverick Sabre – Normal

Potter Payper is kicking off the start of 2016 with some great new music and begins with the impressive video for “Normal” featuring the vocals of the soulful Maverick Sabre. The rapper delves into real life issues faced by many, the problems people go through and how it’s normal life for them. It’s a reality check which will relate to people in some way. You’ll be able to get this track on his forthcoming EP One Time, but you’ll have to wait until March!

Bonkaz – And Dat (Feat. Stormzy)

For some time now Bonkaz has been teasing fans with snippets for his new mixtape, Mixtape of the Year and the most popular was his and Stormzy’s collab on “And Dat”. This weekend we finally received the mixtape with the full version of “And Dat” that has the two MCs going back to back on their Croydon memories. Bonkaz’s new tape has the South London MC displaying His varying rhyming ability and confirming 2016 will be a landmark year for the MC.

Novelist – Break In Your House

Novelist is known for dropping tracks regularly on his Soundcloud and over the weekend we got another one. “Break In Your House” is a self-produced track from the young future star from Lewisham, who freestyles with defiance and boldness that solidifies the fact he is not an MC to be messed with. Word is out that Nov will be dropping his debut album this year too, so we have that to look forward too.

Mez – Hunt For The Pumps

Mez is putting Nottingham on the Grime map and is a serious one to watch this year. His flow, energy and bars bring a real freshness to his music, which is why he is rising fast and has the support of many in the game. “Hunt For The Pumps” showcases Mez’s humorous and witty side on a Kidda Beat production. It’s a catchy track that will get you bouncing.

Sneakbo and Stefflon Don – Work

Sneakbo and Stefflon Don wasted no time recording and releasing a remix to Drake & Rhianna’s new track “Work” the day after it was released. Sneakbo and Stefflon Don’s wavy bars fit the track perfectly like it was made for them, with the pair also sounding wicked together. We hope to see more collaborations with them soon.

Fekky ft. Blade Brown – Racks

Two of South London’s finest rappers joined forces for Fekky’s track ‘Racks’ taken from his recently released free mixtape Brandy & Coke, and now we get the visuals to match. A trappy beat is the setting for the two to present their hard bars. Watch out for Fekky’s El Classico album which should be dropping soon.

Five Emcees To Watch Out For In 2016 @UncleMez @AJFromTheLane @Jammz @MsBanks94 @TheCocoUK

Mez

Mez is definitely the next in Grime. A young Nottingham artist from Crew 12, he started 2015 on a high by spitting bars on Sir Spryo’s Grime Show on Rinse FM. The rest of 2015 saw some pretty big accomplishments for him such as being on the legendary Lord Of The Mics series where he battled Trappy, putting out a single with DJ Cable ‘One Line Flows’, going on Stormzy’s ‘Live In The Flesh’ tour, performing live at the Boiler Room x Eskimo Dance alongside artists such as Ghetts and last but not least being asked to record for the Grime Live Orchestra at Maida Vale on a session back to back with AJ Tracey. He has serious energy and a lyrical badness that’s not to be messed with.

Mez

 AJ Tracey

West London’s AJ Tracey has had a lot of heat surrounding his name due to the amount of hard work and consistency. He has flourished in 2015. He represents Grime’s original days, where MC’s would go to pirate radio as much as they could for the love and commitment they have for the music. He has been putting in the work on radio shows in 2015 from Rinse to NTS to Radar Radio and 1Xtra. This shine’s through in his bodies of work he has released in 2015, his two EP’s ‘The Front’ and ‘Alex Moran’, as well as individual singles such as ‘Spirit Bomb’ and freestyles where his wordplay shines.

Jammz

East Londoner Jammz has really struck out this year. I’ve seen him MC’ing on sets with Plastician at festivals and raves such as Ceremony Festival where he drew the crowd in like a pro. This year has been a fantastic year for him; he released his ‘Hit Then Run’ EP in March, and if you listen to radio, well you can’t miss him as he’s performed on sets on Radar, Deju Vu and Rinse among others. Not only does he MC, he also produces too making him an all-round artist, producing his own tracks such as ‘Hit Then Run’ and ‘Warrior’. His lyricism and work ethic makes him a serious threat for 2016.

Jammz USE

Ms Banks

 21 year old Ms Banks is ready to make this year her year. The South London fiery MC is everything we need from a female MC; she’s genuine, commanding and confident. Last year saw her release a string of tracks such as ‘Hallelujah’, ‘The Get Back’ and more. Beware as she’s not afraid to take on anyone as she says on track ‘Halleljuah’ “any brothers can get it”, and you know she means it with her powerful delivery and clear cut lyrics. She means business and this year she’s also featured on Tinie Tempah’s new project on track ‘Been The Man’ with two other high profile MC’s JME and Stormzy. She will take no prisoners in 2016.

Ms-Banks

Coco

Sheffield’s Coco has shown you don’t have to be from London to be accepted in Grime. He has come through full force this year with single’s ‘Target Practice’, ‘Big Bou Yah’ and the ‘Big Bou Yah Remix’ ft Jammz, Terminator and Trigga all produced by Toddla T and receiving airplay on Radio 1, and being on the playlist on 1Xtra. His Fire In The Booth dropped on Boxing Day, confirming his status as a next to blow MC, as his lyrics and flow are untouchable, changing pace to suit different vibes. Coco sound and lyrics are different and witty and this is why he’s shut down stages at Nottinghill Carnival, various raves and Ibiza Rocks this year.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week

Dapz On The Map – Murdah

Birmingham’s Dapz On The Map keeps it local, as he hooks up with fellow Brum Swifta Beater for the production of new track “Murdah”. The track features a guest performance from his 5-year old daughter Lee On The Map. Dapz brings the heat lyrically to this track talking about his life and his own presence in the music game. The video to the track dropped this week and the visuals are really on point. Check it out below.

Mic Righteous – Ronnie Pickering

Mic Righteous has been silent for a little while, but we do know he has been quiet for a reason as he has been working on his debut album. He makes a fiery return showing us his passion and ethic is still here. If this is a taster of whats to come on the album, it’s definitely going to be something to look forward to!

Cadell x So Large & Grim Sickers – Cilit Bang

This war dub is crazy from London Grime MC’s Cadell, So Large and Grim Sickers who send for Sheffield Grime crew Scumfam. All three MC’s bring lyrical beef as they go in with some of the hardest bars, all bringing something different to the table. These three should work together more often as you can see they bounce well off each other. Now we will have to wait for Scumfam’s response.

WSTRN – IN2

WSTRN came and conquered with their first official single “IN2” and last week brought the visuals to accompany the track which has been all over the airwaves. The feel-good, sunny track has a lot of crossover appeal, with smooth vocals, a catchy hook and sick rapping that gives it the street credibility needed to create an irresistible track. Check out the laced visuals..

DJ Cable ft Mez – One Line Flows

If you’re a Grime fan you would know who Mez is instantly. The Nottingham MC who recently clashed on Lord Of The Mics 7 spits pure fire on DJ Cable’s new track. If you like listening to an MC with pure energy, passion and some humor to go along with it, make sure you check out the video for “One Line Flows”.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @SectionBoyz_ @Heavytrackerz @lilnastyuk @Frictionshogun @HannahV

The Heavytrackerz x Section Boyz – Say It Ain’t That

Section Boyz dropped their project Don’t Panic this week which now has landed in the UK Top 20! They also dropped the visuals to “Say It Ain’t That” a collaborative track with producers The Heavytrackerz, it’s not grime, it’s not rap, it’s just pure UK vibes. This collaboration was always going to be good, but the collabo is on next levels…

Lil Nasty, Grim Sickers, Mez, So Large & Roachee – Hear Dat A Lot

Taken from East London MC, Lil Nasty’s 100 Rounds mixtape which dropped earlier this year, the video for “Hear Dat A Lot” has now arrived which features a variety of grime artists on it. Grim Sickers, Mez, So Large & Roachee all accompany Lil Nasty bringing fiery bars to this heavyweight track.

Friction ft Josh Barry – Freak VIP

Shogun label bossman and producer/DJ of all things drum & bass Friction returns with a soul coated, heavy new single “Freak”. Friction teams up with vocalist Josh Barry for this poignant, elated track along with a VIP remix. If you’ve been to any festivals across the UK you would recognise this track from his sets which he’s been using as his finale!

Hannah V – It Ain’t Right

Hannah V is a one unique and talented lady, and has just unleashed upon us her brand new single “It Ain’t Right” on the label Pitched Up. The producer who is a beast when it comes to laying down a track, brings in Louise LaBelle to lay down the vocals. Hannah loves bass heavy productions and this track definitely is no different with sonic vocal highs merged with the basslines gritty lows.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @OfficialChip @NewhamGenerals @CadellOfficial @IsaiahDreads @Scrufizzer @Saskilla @DJCameo

All my tracks seem to be Grime ones this week, and I can assure you they are all worthy to be included. From the cheeky ‘Feeling Myself’ to war track ‘Hotline’ and feel good one ‘Foolish’ this is why I can say safely say all Grime isn’t the same, so don’t put it in a box again!

Chip ft Kano & Wretch 32– Feeling Myself

I have to start with this one ‘Feeling Myself’ from Chip as it’s a proper feel good, funky track that is a production you would associate more with a hip hop tune than a Grime one, but it sure sounds good. It features quick witted, sizzling and cheeky bars from Kano and Wretch 32 as the three show different can be good. This will be on Chip’s forthcoming EP ‘Believe & Achieve – Episode 1’ out on May 4th.

Newham Generals – Soundboi Killa

The Newham Generals have done it again with this future classic ‘Soundboi Killa’ produced by the bass don Toddla T. When you hear these three names you know it can only mean one thing…it’s Grime, with reggae influences, plenty of bass with computer game sounds. The best duo in Grime kill it and control the mic like the dons they are. Their EP ‘N To The Gs’ will be out very soon too!

Cadell – Hotline

Woahhhhh so it’s sending season, and Cadell really caught my attention with this one I had to add it as one of my tracks of the week. The East London MC goes in for a whole host of MC’s such as Stormzy, Maxsta, Jammer, Elf Kid, Stelf, Mez and more in this one shot taken video called ‘Hotline’. Mez has sent a reply which I’ve put the video to called ‘#64 Bars Of Air Pie’.

Isaiah Dreads ft C4 – Foolish

Let’s take it back now to some more bouncy, happier vibes with the 17-year old Grime MC from Dorset Isaiah Dreads. We heard the track on Soundcloud which seems to have gained co-signs from DJ’s Target, Cameo, Phil Taggart, Huw Stevens, Mistajam and more who have all pressed play on it. Produced by the go-to producer Preditah and featuring his brother C4, this is a more uplifting, melodic track showing off Isaiah’s fast paced flow.

Gunplay ft Rick Ross & Scrufizzer, Saskilla and Maxsta – Aiight

Last but certainly not least, a US to UK remix here with Gunplay ft Rick Ross’ track ‘Aiight’ being given a Grime remix with three very hard lyricists Scrufizzer, Saskilla and Maxsta all going in over the remix which Darq E Freaker provided for them. S/O DJ Cameo for putting this one together, I look forward to seeing more of this from them.
