Taken from the first EP on the label of GOB024, 'The Tide That Moves Me'. Another dancehall song that I am feeling, the beat sounds very unique and different especially with the dancehall theme to it. This song has to be apart of the summer, dancehall party anthems list of new songs for 2017, its got everything a great beat and a popping artist on the track.

Review: Confucius MC & Mr Brown - The Artform [+ Stream EP and videos]


In the modern era of hip hop we are in today, some people are becoming increasingly sceptical about the direction the genre is taking. Many state that hip hop is losing what itis fundamentally all about and what really epitomises what people fell in love with back in the golden era from the late 70s to early 90's. The whole culture of hip hop and a respect and passion for lyricism and songwriting.... And this is what Confucius MC and Mr Brown's project encapsulates so perfectly - starting with the title and the main theme of the EP, "The Artform", referring to hip hop itself being a form of art.

Confucius MC brings a Wu Tang feel to the album with his delivery and presence complimented by Mr Brown's attention to detail in his production, openingthe entire EP by sampling an extract from the movie "Lust For Life" in the track "Artiste", an inspirational quote from famous artist Vincent Van Gogh, an influential figure to the message of this project.

This sort of detail and immersion makes one wonder how two such talented artists have not managed to get a proper break in the music industry yet, and with this new project, this should finally be the break they deserve. This is a highly recommended project to check this out, especially as someone who misses the rawness and authenticity of the old school hip hop sound. Check out the stream of the project here -

Review: CLBRKS - Peugeot Music Vol 1


CLBRKS (pronounced CL Brooks) is a young artist from South East London who dropped a new project on June 16 entitled "Peugeot Music Vol 1". He portrays and evolvesthe 'Danny Brown' type sound with his own unique twist and delivery, along with an array of confounding lyricism in tracks such as 'Dorica' and 'So Speshul', explainingstories of his life engulfed by drugs and depression.

The production quality is particularly enjoyable as it brings you back to the old school boom-bap days while also being complimented by some of the modern day lo-fi hip hop sounds. Mixed and mastered together, these sounds mesh perfectly and is a really great project to bump in your car, or Peugeot, late at night - hence the fitting title, "Peugeot Music Vol 1".

Video: Podgy Figures x Bonkaz - Mad Ting [prod. Zeph Ellis, FKA Dot Rotten]


After the successful release of ‘’Wrap Up The Ting’’ and ‘’Hardest,’’ Podgy Figures has once again joined forces with producer Zeph Ellis also known as Dot Rotten. For his newest track, the West Londoner has also teamed up with Croydon rapper Bonkaz. Embracing the essence of grime, Podgy Figures has recently released a video to accompany his new single titled ‘’Mad Ting.’’ Podgy wanted the song to be a soundtrack for ‘’those who understand the graft of making something out of nothing.’’ The Jay Parpworth- directed visual does not feature either of the artists, instead, it is focused on young London- based stylish people.

Maleek Berry - Been Calling


Maleek Berry's latest, which he produced and wrote is definitely giving us major summer vibes. This song is very much aimed at the ladies, with his sweet lyrics its hard not to like this song. The rhythm is giving off a dancehall/afro beats theme to it from his vocals and lyrics. Its catchy and very much likeable. Give it a listen and be the judge.

Popcaan - Frass Box [+ 'The Hit List', Vol 6]


Popcaan has another hit, Frass Box created on the Wicked riddem (Notnice Records), this song is definitely a song to turn up to. Popcaan is expressing how he loves to have fun, smoke and relax with his ladies. This has to be the next party anthem and also my favourite song on volume 6 of Tad's Record 'The Hit List' compilation, which has a ton of the best dancehall artists all in one place. From Alkaline, to Mavado this mix delivers the bangers. Tad's Record certainly knows what songs to have on a a epic compilation. With myself being a big Alkaline and Mavado fan this track list makes me very happy. All the most popular artists are on this, so be sure to lock in and have a listen. This mix gets a 10/10 from me. Stream here via Spotify and cop via iTunes. Check the track listing below.

Lyric Video: Gentleman - Ovaload ft Sean Paul


German reggae star Gentleman has linked up with the prolific Sean Paul to create a song to destroy all negative people and actions telling us that some people will hate, but  through it all we will just have to move on from the negativity. This song is positive and motivating with a great message, while still being a epic song - definitely proof of their unique talent! Sean Paul is coming back in a big way, by featuring on a range of new songs lately, which is exciting for his global fanbase, dancehall or otherwise!

Review: Madison Washington - Code Switchin'

Madison Wahington's Code Switchin' EP is one of those little recordings that's too bizarre to pigeonhole. However, there's a lot of hip hop like this, in so much as you could pigeonhole it into the "un-pigeon-holeable", if you will, which doesn't always equate to anything hard to stomach, but a piece that seems to slightly lack the sum of its parts. That's not to say that the Code... isn't without its merits. In it I hear a recording that wears its heart on its sleeve and paints a landscape where a flag of influence never flies half mast. Brought to the ill culinary behaviour, there's definitive shades of A Tribe Called Quest (Travellers Cloak), K.Dot and vocal tinges of a young Busta Rhymes, but also the socio-political drive and rhetoric of early Gil Scott Heron and the always over-looked Anti-Pop Consortium (Lotus In The Slums). But for how great the production is on one track, it can be overshadowed elsewhere. I'd love to hear a completely re-written bass across the board, for one. Madison Washington was an American slave and cook who incited a revolt. But on this project, Madison Washington is @thatmanmonkz, a DJ/producer from Sheffield, and @MalikAmeer0 , a rapper/poet from Oakland, California now living in Paris.  In the spirit of the rebel-eyed cook (and to enormously misquote Simon and Garfunkel), here's what MadWash can already take along, should their spiritual travels take them via Scarborough Fair: "Bars-beats, Rage, Flows-many..." Just add "...Time", and the roots will grow strong.  https://twitter.com/mad_wash

Video: Maui Max - Pull Up

Maui Max is a name you need to be familiar with after the release of his new banger, "Pull Up", along with a visually appealing and authentic music video. The Atlanta native proceeds with such integrity and rawness in his delivery and transmits such a unique vibe which really compliments the production. Not to mention the high standard of lyricism. In this track, he explains the trials and tribulations of 2016 and welcomes them with open arms; hence telling them to "Pull Up".  Following recently being highlighted as the one of the upcoming artists next to blow up during A3C 2016, I really recommend giving this joint a listen and I will certainly be following this artist in the future as he prepares for his new EP "Reign/Rain". Also produced by Kato and 808 Blake, you know you aren't going to be disappointed. twitter.com/mauimaxx

Alkaline - My Love


No surprise that Alkaline has dropped another song this month, and once again its aimed at the ladies. 'My Love', produced by Tru Ambassador is a sexy, sweet but freaky song that expresses how he loves his women. Something about this artist will always have you singing along to his tunes, its so easy to like his songs instantly. Mr Vendetta is definitely proving he is on top of dancehall with the constant releases. No music video yet but I'm sure it would have very sexual visuals to match the lyrics.
