Estelle

New Estelle Album On The Way

After spending the craziest year promoting “The 18th Day”, Estelle has been busy recording her sophomore album in London, New York and LA.  The new material, scheduled to be released on V2/J-did early in the new year, has been co-produced by Estelle, who has been developing her talents in the studio, as well as perfecting her lyrical skills.
 

King Biscuit Time - C I Am 15

King Biscuit Time – C I Am 15 7″ [No Style]

You may well have heard of the Beta Band, but maybe you are wondering how they have cropped up on here. Well I do have a varied musical taste, but really it is because for the start of his solo career as King Biscuit Time, Steve  Mason has produced quite an interesting little 7" release. Some of the Beta Band's biggest tracks were produced by Colin Emmanuel, better known in Hip Hop circles as C-Swing.
 

Hazardous

Hazardous – Swansea Hip Hop

Swansea’s very Hip-hop nowadays and here’s a big part of the reason why: DJ Beattrix and emcees Mykes, Wes Cooze & Snow White – a deadly emcee who very nearly won at the last Higher Learning battle (big up to the reigning champion Louis). Fiercely independent and loyal to where they’re from; these guys (and a girl) spit the raw uncut and do Hip-hop proud.  

Killa Kela

Killa Kela – Elocution LP

What more is there to say about Kela? Plenty actually: Pharrell Williams (The Neptunes/NERD) and Justin Timberlake think he’s the best in the world; his Rave Of The Future 10” is out now damaging record shop shelves along with the most original mix CD you’ve heard in yonks (The Day That Shook The World); his Spit Kingdom empire is now global with club dates all over Europe and constant bookings in just about every country there is and this tour is to promote his incredible new album Elocution - out on Sony/BMG from October 10th.

Ruffstylz

Ruffstylz – Lyrics CD

The living breathing embodiment of all that is Hip-hop has been carving his name into the scene’s skull with a double edged microphone for the past decade. Whether it’s as a commentator (for the number one Hip-hop Magazine HHC), an activist (he’s one 3rd of the Brotherz Grimm family), or as an emcee with unstoppable stamina (currently he holds the World Record for the Longest Freestyle at over 10 and a half hours) Ruffstylz has always taken things upwards and onwards to the next level.   

Professor Green

Prof Green Battles to Second

In the Bahamas Professor Green who defeated Life to represent at the Fight Klub battled his way past Serius Jones to meet Jin in the final. They tossed verbals back and forth with Prof. Green apparently handling himeslf until the final stages when he lost his flow and couldn’t come up with the vital words. […]

Low Life Records

New Low Life Records Website

After several years of running the Low Life Records website and after building it up to be a strong presense on the web, I have had to relinquish control due to other pressures on my time. But this is not a bad thing as the site has been revamped with a tasty new design and […]
