Ms Banks – The Come Up

We’ve heard the news on the internet and social media about the forthcoming ‘The Intent’ movie, and now MS Banks has dropped the almighty first track off of the film with the visuals to boot! The video shows Ms Banks with blue hair and shows clips from the movie too, teasing us of what to expect. This is a real hard track, that shows off her lyrical skills and features a hook from Ayo Beatz.

Flowdan – Horror Show Style

Grime veteran Flowdan delivers the visuals for ‘Horror Show Style.’ The video matches the name of the track perfectly, with girls dressed up as in if a horror film, whilst Flowdan is in a suit and also black tracksuit. The beat has a repetitive rolling drum sound throughout, in which Flowdan delivers his bars over.

Knox Brown ft. Anderson Paak – No Slaves

Birmingham producer and vocalist Known Brown drops the audio to track ‘No Slaves’ featuring American rapper Anderson Paak. This is taken from Knox’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Searching’ out August 5th. The tracks statement is powerful and unites gospel, soul and dub, highlighted by Knox’s soulful vocals and Paak’s incisive verse.

Ezi Emela – No Lele

British Nigeran singer Ezi Emela returns with track ‘No Lele’ which was given it’s radio premiere by DJ Target. This is going to be on her forthcoming EP, and sees the singer in a rebellious and defiant mood, addressing her detractors and naysayers with strong and confident lyrics.

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.

 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.

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 @DynamiteMC @MsBanks94 @idriselba @Wretch32 @JCLARKE_GHETTS @RudeKidMusic

Dynamite MC – Choices

Dynamite MC is a master of ceremonies, one that  Drum & Bass and Jungle lovers are familiar with, as he is one of the most prominent voices. On the 4th of December his album World Of Dynamite is being released and it comes with some classic bangers and some unheard material too, spanning Drum & Bass, Hip Hop, Breaks and Garage with production from some of the best including Roni Size, High Contrast, Wookie, DJ Zinc, Andy C, Zed Bias, Danny Byrd and more showcasing his musical legacy. ‘Choices’ a Wookie produced cut off the album premiered on Complex UK, it was originally released in the noughties and has been reworked for a fresh take in 2015.

Ms Banks – Hallelujah

Ms Banks has a confession to make in her new track “Halleujah” and that’s thanking God for exposing the fake people, and allowing her to see the light when it comes to people’s true colours. Now she’s all about the money and is grateful for that. The video has captured the essence of the track with it being filmed in a church, showing Ms Banks at the pulpit and shots of a choir. She’s made a strong name for herself this year; so next year should see big things!

Idris Elba – Murdah Loves John ft. Wretch 32 & Tanika

As Idris Elba returns for the 4th series of ‘Luther’ on BBC One next month, he will also be releasing an album in light of the loved fictional character. ‘Murdah Loves John’ the title track was premiered on Annie Mac’s show on Radio 1 this week. It comes with strong, shadowy lyrics from Wretch 32 and beautiful, grandiose vocals from Tanika. The track definitely has a Bond theme tune feel to it, with the dramatic production, building you up waiting for something to happen.

Ghetts x Rude Kid – One Take

This is the first video to drop from East London MC Ghetts & producer Rude Kids’ project #SixFiveThree which was released last week on iTunes. The visuals include footage from their launch party and you can spot some familiar faces such as Giggs, Tinchy Stryder, Griminal and more. The production samples a number of Grime tracks; Wileys’ “Igloo”, Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Hoe’ and Section Boyz “Lock Arrrf”, with double time, high energy bars from Ghetts.
