Kyza’s latest full length release is one that i’ve been looking forward to for quite a while. Too bad it’s not due to hit the shelves/sites until mid June. The 1st single, Love & Music has just landed & the second, Sin City is due on 1st June. The d/l below is a promo snippet of both singles plus one B-side, Dirty. And yes they are all niceness (or i wouldmn’t have posted ‘em). Enjoy!

This has been sitting in my hard drive for about 3 weeks. Don’t make the same mistake I did. This is quality stuff from Adrian, who also proves himself to be just as able on the M I C as he is behind the boards on the final track. The others are filled with recognisable stuff from Mos Def, MOP, Nas, Kanye West, The Notorious BIG, Pharoahe monch & more. All done under the influence of Thw White Stripes. Quality stuff. Enjoy!

Geometrix_mybittersweet16frontsmallI dropped a few preview tracks a couple of weeks back for this one. well the full length is now here. A very well constructed mix.

DJ Geometrix – My Bitter Sweet 16

1 Wyze Jan

mail.google.com2 Man I tolg you these guys would keeping pushing quality product. This is a track off of |Sean Wyze’s upcoming project, The Sunday LP. Jansport J laced this one superbly & Wyze is his effervescent self on the M I C. Even the name of the track is nice (in a weird way)i really like this one. Check the freeness column for Sean’s 1st project (Chicks & Snares). Looking forward to the LP. fellas!

Sean Wyze – Morning Breath feat. Pro Verb (beat by Jansport J)

From Ashy to.... ???

I can't understand why people have been downing this guy. I can only assume that these are the same people who were down on Em when he 1st tipped his hat via major label backing. I always thought that any MC worth his salt had to have 3 things, subject matter, charisma & skills. If those 3 are covered in varying degrees & aren't being wasted on 'Thugnificent' type rhetoric then alls the better right? Not according to some which is why I think that Asleep In The Bread Aisle is going to suffer from over critiquing by folks who should know better than to judge the man as well as his music. Lets get the obvious out of the way, yes he sounds like Em. Now... the Indie influence, while obvious through almost the entire album, is a very welcome one. The effect is such that the whole concept sounds natural. Allie to this the breaks in tradition with tracks like Blunt Cruisin' & the Busta Rhymes assisted jump starter Lion's Roar & these is ealiy enough here for everybody to get their teeth into. Oren Yoel (he handles most of the production) is a name that I haven't heard of before now, I suspect that i'm not the only one but not for much longer. The subject matter, while nothing new, is varied, covers both comical, emotional & political boundaries & is very well executed. One thing I like about Ash's flow is that he knows when to dumb it down. Some of these new heads on the block fail to realise that going hell for leather over every beat they come across does not make them nice with theirs. His dream is a perfect example. Keeping the rhymes straight forward (not basic there is a difference) means that the feel that is supposed to be conveyed to us the listener is done so with ease (you'd be suprised how many times i've heard this mistake made). AITBI is an album that, at a time when mainstream Hip Hop is crying out for change, easily stands out from what is floating about currently. Asher could easily have gone down the controversial route in order to try & grab the same audience as his soundalike (which would've meant an even more adverse reaction in certain quarters). It's pleasing to see that he hasn't done so & has turned in some top quality product as a consequence.

Just to clear a few things up. since some i’ve gotten a few emails asking wat the above pic is about. These blogs are about music. A concious choice has been made for most of our attention to be focused on unsung/up & coming artists. The ad-free logo is not about a blanket shut out of any ads. It is about focusing on what we are about. So basically the only ads that we will be placing on this site are ads to do with artists/MC’s/music. Like i said when i 1st started out on my blogging travels, we will use any and all media to help promote & share the music from the music we love.

The End Of The World News (not that bad but i'm still pissed off)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         Bloody hell, I watching the news I have just realised just how much some people never learn. Story after story about UK government ministers & officials wasting my hard earned tax contributions on their '2nd' homes, travel expenses & X-Rated movies, keep on hitting the headlines. Everytime the same old excuse is used as a defence. 'I was within the rules' or aome variation of, is probably the most used sentence of a press release in recent times. Don't these people get it yet, that it's within the rules is neither here nore there when the rule itself is fundamentally designed for MP's to take the piss. Therse people have been doing that for years & we will never know the full extent of the issue, simply because if it came out the public perception of the politician (already a f$£%@d up one) would be irreprably damaged.

If you use your sisters spare bedroom 3 days a week to commute to & from work, whilst the other 4 are spent in your 'other' home with your husband sleeping next to you & your kids just across the landing, the spare room is NOT your main home. If you decide to hire your wife & kids to work for you part time & pay them more than most of the average population earn for full time work, this is NOT simply a competitive salary. If you buy porn movies online on a friday night alone while your wife is at 'work' & refuse to dip into your own pocket, this is NOT a work related expense.

This is not about abusing the rule, this is about the rule being an abuse. I cannot believe that in the current climate that this is actually taking place. Gordon brown travelled the world recently & while these things were going on & people were questioning the wisdom of his actions. The £700 Billion ($1 Trillion) secured for the current global situation during the G20 summit has more than justified the expenditure. This is the kind of spending that I expect my tax to be spent on. Gordon, to his credit, has said that he wants this rule sorted out quickly. Not quickly enough as far as i'm concerned.
