Katalyst put together one of my favourite releases of 2007 with his debut ‘Whats Happening’. His new long player isn’t far away and this first single, Day Into Night, is an awesome showcase of the kind of quality to expect. The old school Dub/Reggae inspired track fits Stephanie Mckay superbly. My summer mix is definitely going to involve this one. Peep the snippet.
Nathan ‘Flutebox Lee’ is simply an awesomely talented individual. On 28th March you too will be able to sample a short brst of what this man is all about. Beatboxing with a flute, backed by a live band, while combining elements of Dubstep & Funk into the equation is quite a feat. I' am lucky enough to have been given a copy of the Flutebox EP (thanks Corin) and the results are awesome. Peep the visuals.
Daaaaaam Cyrus’ album is gonna br fire!. Simple really! Peep the taster.
Boy! This guy just doesn’t stop giving. No sooner do I marvel at the wonders of Tom Caruana’s Rough Versions series, does he push his Okay Player Bollywood project to the good people. Not only that, he has also made the tracks tha didn’t make the initial cut as a bonus collection. We are talking about a combined total of 41 tracks of: Black Thought, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Erykah Badu, (Mad) Skillz, Mos Def, Quasimoto, Little Brother, Lupe Fiasco, Gift Of Gab, Musiq (Soulchild) and more…. Let me be quite clear, Such a vast quantity of free, quality music is NOT to be passed up. And there is an awful lot more freeness to be had on the site too. Don’t sleep on these. Enjoy!

All things Krate Krusader related are an automatic A* as far as i’m concerned. This time they have teamed up with Illus for some comic inspired visual shenanigans. Superb track and an even better video.
Joe Good!?! I was sure I had some other stuff on my hard drive that involved this guy but I found nothing (hmmmm….). Hey ho, at leat I/we can use Good Hair as some kind of Joe Good related comfort pillow (EH?)
