Three Point One Four [EP] Cover










My 2 favourite genres combined. When it’s done this well regular rotation on my I-pod is secure. I’ve said it before but the key to making any live instrumentation work with Hip Hop is the sessions type vibe produced within the music. These guys are masters of this craft. A must have for any fan worth his/her salt. The pic on the right contains a link to purchase the ‘Minor Details’ EP. The pic on the left is where I leave you with a sample of their superb new EP ‘Three Point One Four’. Oh and if your in London on 4th October, the Jazz Cafe is where these guys will be. I’ll be there too. Enjoy!

The producer MC combo is a long trusted Hip Hop tradition that is carried very well indeed on the shoulders of Cheka Fred & Otitis. And so the quality train from this now prolific camp continues. Surely they cannot keep on giving away music of such quality. Enjoy!

AlbumCover Sorry man (Luke) I let this one slip by… until your heads up. Yes people more quality freeness. I cannot think of a single alternative genre that has anywhere near this amount of quality music to giveaway. Hip Hop has always lead the way in the digital revolution and long may it continue. Enjoy!

Hawaii 5-0


Quality freeness is what got this lil blog of mine  started. This one is one of the best i’ve had the pleasure of posting. Hawaiian Hip Hop at its best. Peep his words: ‘we had our most authentic feelings and emotions as children before people started coaching on us on how to feel towards things we were exposed to, so I wanted to take that energy (childlike) into what my love for Hip Hop is. The "beta" in the title alludes to my desire that I want people to try it and really dissect it, and on a more artistic level, I hope that other artists after considering my work, try to put more of their artistic side and energy into their work’. –Juander-. Enjoy… I did!

I was gonna do a review piece for this one but i will simply say that this is the best Hip Hop release of the year so far & I would argue one of the best produced albums of the modern era. Anyone who wants to supass this is gonna have to go some… over to you Mr. Young.

He’s not Famous (incase you didn’t know)


The soon to be released first album, Order Up volume 3, is the first release from my man Kevin’s new Hipnott Label. This here mixtape is the precursor to said release. Enjoy!

The ‘09 Tape Killa is back

template-2panel revised [Converted]

Now then… according to the sender, this one passed me by the first time it dropped in my inbox. But I refuse to believe that I let freeness of this quality pass me by without noticing (no way Chris hehe). Don’t let the title fool you, this is all new material. Let the reminiscing begin. Enjoy!

Revalation & Catalyst - Killa Tape '09 (The Album)

& around & around again...

I recently wrote a piece that I am still unsure whether to post or leave behind. Their is a part of that piece where I acknowledge the relatively recent pool of talent that makes up the current crop of UK Hip Hops bold and brave. I remarked on impending decisions for some of our great and good. It seems that with his 2nd effort, Micall is intent on grabbing the proverbial bull by the horns. Such is the crisp, sharp quality and execution of this album that you have to wonder how all of these producers are still only well known figures in Hip Hops underworld. Parky the MC is still the working mans champion. Lines like "I've come so far, I'm a man with a plan I ain't no rap star; I'm a man with a fam I ain't got no car, its my wife who can drive all I got is bars" are a testimony to what the man is about.No gimmicks, no banter, just real world lyrics with out of this world production. The engineer also deserves his props as the whole package is superbly mixed. Oh and having your son tell us not to 'bootleg my dads cd' is genius (as is the Erick Sermon inspired hook on Holdin' It Down). UK stand up!!!

Sorry preacher man, i can’t believe it took me so long to get to this, especially since the beatsmith involved hails from my shores. Peep these tasters for the EP. Enjoy the niceness. Oh and keep an eye out for another Preach project which sees him partnered with Marc Mac from 4Hero. I was lucky enough for Preach to grant me an early listen to a couple of tracks & maaaaaan those two aren’t messin’ about!
