In My Lifetime is the first official single off Lowkey's new LP Dear Listener and features Wretch 32 of The Movement.
His first official album, 'Dear Listener' is an extremely honest and distinctly fresh project, laden with world class production from Scram Jones (Mariah Carey / G Unit), Styalz Fuego (Chamillionaire / Busta Rhymes), Q-Tones (Lil Wayne) and more.
Kidkanevil, like any good scientist has experimented extensively, has produced a watertight thesis and is ready to prove it to you with ‘Back Off Man, I’m a Scientist’ (out now on First Word Records). Kidkanevil, it seems, set out to prove that the bonds between modern, westernised music and traditional ethnic compositions still exist. He’s compounded and mixed elements of both and, quite organically, grown a hybrid form of music.
Leading youth work charity UK Youth conducted an online survey, of 588 young people on their views of young people in the media, through its young people led arm UK Youth Voice (UKYV).

Well first of all it makes a change from Joey's normal depressed and kinda sober sound which although he does do well with, is not what we want in this current climate.
The Mighty Quinn is... well... pretty damn mighty. His original production skills and 'self-expression over a banging drum line' make him a serious one to watch for the sample tiring, sound repeating, soul flattening producers of the mainstream. As he cracks his knuckles to pound out some more ingenious instrumentals, Quinn is also opening his arms to any decent, equally original and pure MCs and singers out there.
Mury Poppinz and Bane of West Yorkshire’s Don’t Talk To Strangers supergroup have hooked up with none other than controversial US MC Cage and Leeds producer Eliphino to bring you and I ‘Self Harmonic’.
If you’re anything like me, these dark mornings and evenings a little depressing. If you go to and come home from work in the dark and have forgotten what the sun, no matter how cloud covered, looks like then this might be for you. It’s definitely for me.
Out and out slapstick Hip Hop definitely has its place in our scene. Pitman went down well, most people liked Devvo and GLC had it for a minute (despite how much you tell yourself they didn’t).
