Pixies Tracks Of The Week @TheBugzyMalone @Skepta @Fluxpavilion @Gfrsh @HarryShotta

Bugzy Malone – Watch Your Mouth

Manchester grime MC Bugzy Malone has been putting in the work with his presence and buzz being more prominent as of late, especially with his lyrical beef with Chip helping to excel his popularity. He dropped the first visual “Watch Your Mouth”, produced by Rude Kid, shot in his hometown from his forthcoming EP Walk With Me out July 26. The video depicts the grittiness of the track where he is giving a warning to people to watch themselves. Could it be a pre war track warming up for Lord of The Mics 7?

Skepta – Lukey World

Last week the death of Lukey Maxwell who was fatally stabbed, hit a lot of North London Grime MC’s in a bad way inlcuding Chip, Paper Pabs and more. His close friend Skepta paid homage and respect by recording a track”Lukey World” dedicated to him. Skepta honours him by reflecting to the world on his friend’s strength, kindness and music he was due to release.

Flux Pavilion – Who Wants To Rock ft. Riff Raff

Flux Pavilion the label co boss of Circus Records performed live at EDC New York, showcasing his new track “Who Want To Rock” ft legendary Riff Raff who gives the track a trap element with his insane, mic wrecking lyrics. Although the beat keeps a more electronic UK feel. It’s safe to assume that this track will be on Flux’s forthcoming album, and if this track is anything to go by, we can expect big things.

G Frsh ft Stormzy & Tinie Tempah – Sometimes

G Frsh drops the visuals for the very powerful “Sometimes”. The Berlin shot track is filled with emotion and self-confession, showing us a softer side to the three rappers and giving us a closer look into their minds. We hear G Frsh, Tinie Tempah and Stormzy trade bars regarding feelings after a relationship break down.

Harry Shotta – Animal

Charlie Sloth took to the radio to premiere D&B/Jungle MC Harry Shotta’s brilliant new track “Animal”. It has now been reported that it has now broken the World Record for the most words in a track, previously held by Eminem on “Rap God”. The lyrical beasts fast-paced flow went over the previous record by over 200 words. The track has blown up and is currently in the top 10 UK hip hop charts. Watch the visuals below.

Kano (@TheRealKano) ‘Home Sweet Home’ album is 10 Years Old This Year: I Name My Top Tracks

2015 (Summer) is the year that marks the 10th anniversary of Kano’s debut album ‘Home Sweet Home’, one of the most influential albums in the UK Grime scene. I have decided to dedicate a blog to this album and my favourite tracks from the album and why…lets go back in time and remember one of the greatest albums in Grime. It was so hard to pick my top tracks but I had to be strict with myself and get it down to 7!

Big up Kano one of the best MC’s to touch the mic and don’t forget you can catch him at Fabric on January 17th for the 5th Butterz anniversary.

P’s & Q’s

The first one has to be P’s & Q’s which is still on an old skool mixed CD in my car and whenever it gets played is turned up loud. This is just a classic, catchy one that I think most people know, Grime fan or not.

Nite Nite

Another classic one. When Kano and The Streets hooked up for ‘Nite Nite’ the outcome was pretty magical. This one got the girls wanting to play the girl in the video and hooked on Kano’s deeper side and the boys looking for that chick.

Ghetto Kid

A grimy banger with Kano just being the raw, real Kano, there was no white wash to this song and this is simply why it’s in my top 5. Plus it features Ghetts on it.

Mic Check

‘Mic Check’ is a war riddim apart from the fact he’s not sending for anyone in particular, he is just stating that no one can fuck with him and his crew.

Reload It

Sick flow and lyrics on this tune “I get a reload purely for the flow”, calling out some MC’s such as Tinchy and Hyper when on the hook when he says they get no reloads. This tune is what the essence of Grime is on one track.

Sometimes

This shows the reflective and down to earth Kane Robinson. The man behind the music and the man who questioned why it was him that made it.. ..Well Kano I’m sure there’s a few of us that can answer that!

 Nobody Don’t Dance No More

This tune hit the raves and was basically telling everyone to stop being stoosh standing on the edge of the dancefloors and just get up and have a good time! It definitely did as the rhythm got everyone moving and still does to this day when it comes on.
