ItsNate – Maintain [VIDEO]

The realist of realist talk from Sir SLOCAL ItsNate on “Maintain”. The pounding beat gives Nate the space to drop hard to find rare gems from his day-to-day. Hear him musing on his late nights and early mornings, lane…

YL – “Side Effect” [Video]

An email dropped in my inbox this morning. A well-worded, sleek press release informing me about the existence of this dope-dope-dope project. It goes without saying, I instantly replied to the afore-mentioned email requesting a press copy of YL’s…

LIKE – “MUSHROOM CLOUD” [Video]

“Music Made While High” is a great project and “Mushroom CLoud” is easily one of the tracks that gets the heaviest rotation in the flat. These Jesse Gammage curated visuals make the jam even sweeter. LIKE is that guy…

Denzel Himself – “Thrasher” [Official Video]

It’s always a pleasure to see and hear Denzel Himself. A truly creative & talented individual with an instantly recognizable sound that will resonate with anglophiles, anglo-sympathisers & natives alike. “Trasher” is a lucid trip through suburbia with Himself…

A2 – “X2 (DBLE)” (VIDEO)

Plain Jane Francis – “oh my jane”

Dallas, Texas its your time! Perfectly palatable, visually pleasing (Plainjanefrancis comes correct with the videos) rap music. VHS’, decadent air travel and a every day’s Saturday, Ferris Buller-attitude set to some of the nangiest beats I’ve heard in ages…

WIley – “SPEAKERBOX”

Rather than assign the traditional labels that have become synonymous with the Wiley-cat. I think it more appropriate to let his overly prolific back catalogue and general founding-father-like status speak for itself. SPEAKERBOX is the title, Eski has always…

Jami Brwn – “YOLO寡斷 EP (2016)”

Good grief this is an incredibly dope release! The perfect close to the year. YOLO寡斷 + one other track entitled Maggi. Throw in some remixes (The Rgry remix is particularly joyful). I recommend shaking your Paypal piggy bank for…

$COTT $IMMONS – “foreign sorrow”

$COTT $IMMONS‘ druggy steez and hi-tech synths conjure up raw heartfelt lyrics and awkard flows. Drawing inspiration from the names listed in his bio, $COTT’s release is a rare gem. Scotty too hotty..g’head with your bad self. Stream-stream &…
