WHAT THE HELL!!! Does this dude not know how to relax. Great single after great album after great EP after great freebie just keep on coming from Sonnyjim. This time it is Canadian beatsmith Elaquent providing the canvass for Jim to do his thing. No preview necessary… grab it and name your price (which won’t last forever).
Dubbledge is easily one of the most diverse and entertaining MC’s the UK has produced. The witty punchlines and high pitched delivery make for some laugh out loud moments (although you may have to rewind to catch a few of them). Those of you who know all about The Boondocks will appreciate the sound bites. Those that haven’t got a clue should get familiar real quick! As for the man behind the album, all the pluses i mentioned above are in abundance & the concept is well put together. The beats are as diverse as the MC they are backing. and… only £2.99!!!
preview & link are available after the break
The Associated Mindz Crew have decided to let some niceness go g=for the masses via Hidden Thoughts. This collection of rarities, remixes & guest spots features the usual Assiciated suspects: Raplh Rip Shit, Mudmowth, Willo Wispa, Beatbox Fozzy, P.L.O & more. Enoy!
And as if by magic…. it arrives! Yungun has let loose the niceness that is ‘Jack The World’. There are some real smooth breaks on here and Mr. Thing is in his element. Plus you can grab the Unmixed radio edits as well! A must have!
Yungun has been a staple of UK hip hop for the longest but has been away for quite some time. There is only so long a man can keep listening to The Essance and G.M.B but according to his Bandcamp page the wait is nearly over. Jack The World (mixed by long time Essa’s long term cohort MR. Thing) is due anytime now. Peep the 2 tracks from said mixtape below. I want It, is the Waajeed (PPP) produced banger but my favourite is Sunshine, which sees Essa riding the oft used Roy Ayers classic. Enjoy!
I Want It (produced by Waajeed)
I don’t know how many times I can stress this…. DO NOT sleep on Sonnyjim! Hot on the heels of the awesome Psychonaut LP, comes the even better (yes better!) Psychonaut Remix LP. The venom exhibited by Sonnyjim is the stuff of legend and the one liners!?! But the key is the different vibe that comes through this time round. The Boom Bap backbone is evident but rather than smacking you aurally in the head it seems that Jim has now decided that more concentrated slaps are the order of the day.
The album is available HERE
peep the evidence after the break…
Can Nicolay do any wrong? What about one or two tracks from his Here, album I hear those that know utter. hmmm well that as may be but this EP tips its head superbly to the second of the City Lights releases. So if you want to get an idea of what your ears will be pleasured by if you make it to Nics tour (aided by the super talented Hot At Nights) Grab this now! This tour needs to reach London at some point! enjoy!
Whoa! This one passed me by. Mick Boogie has put together an awesome ATCQ compilation, or as he calls it, a lost Tribe album (of sorts). Remixes & rarities ahoy. My favourite Hip Hop group/collective/artists period> Enjoy!
