Video: Blind MIC - Black Hole (Ft. IAMDDB & LauraELL)

19-year-old Manchester talent Blind MIC has released the second single from his new EP 'Codeine Bluez'. It's a half-sung half-rapped zonked-out track accompanied by a stark beat made up of groovy bass, sharp piano and skeletal percussion (produced by Blind MIC himself under the alter ego Skrrt Cobain). The eccentric artist's multiple skills as a rapper, singer, guitarist and beatsmith make him a character to look out for in the future.

Directed by Giada Ghiringelli, this track's wavy visuals match the bass heavy beat, and the whole video is stylishly shot, reminiscent of A$AP Mob but with a very London feel to it! 

Keep a look out for these guys, doing big stuff in the UK in 2017!

Video: Hypo ft Rich The Kid & Suspect - Buss It Down

This is new video for 'Buss it Down' which features Suspect and Queens, NY rapper Rich The Kid. As one of the founding members of the crew Mashtown, Hypo has had his music played by the likes of Charlie Sloth and Tim Westwood. The tune will definitely go down well in the club with that minimal trap sound and is another in the string of dope transatlantic collabs!

Album Review: Nash Boogie - Make America 08 Again

Album Review: Nash Boogie - Make America 08 Again

A new artist on our radar Nash Boogie is an emcee and producer hailing from Sacramento, California. After a selection of previous EPs and videos, such as Fight below, his latest body of work Make America 08 Again comes hosted by DJ SantanaMustDie taking the form of a full length album with no features seeing Nash take centre stage. 

With 17 tracks squeezed into 58 minutes the album is punchy and fast paced taking the listener through a quick fire tour of Nash's production and emceeing abilities which vary between the booming percussion and bass guitar of Spazz to the mellow vocal samples of earn my trust. Punchy is a word the sums up the general feel of most of the tracks with Nash maintaining energy and attitude throughout though crucially we do see him switching the flow around and introducing some of his own hooks on tracks such as There For You.

For more of Nash Boogie's previous work check out the rest of his SoundCloud here.

Video: Izzie Gibbs - OK

The man with the "Jutsu" brings us a cold track to let us know not everything is OK but at the same time he is OK with it being so, OK. The B.D.L soldier, signed to Dice Recordings (Narstie's home) switches it up once again with a dope medley of lyricism, flows and melodies yet still managing to keep it real in his ends with his boys as he talks about real life struggles he faces everyday. We need more brudda's like Izzie in the scene to allow the UK rap and grime scene gain the respect it deserves overseas.

Watch out for the "Ying Yang" EP dropping 23rd of June.
