Kash Choudhary - P.A.K.I MP3 [Indie]

Kash Choudhary – P.A.K.I MP3 [Indie]

Are there are any social settings / contexts where it is acceptable to use the word "PAKI"? Is it a credible argument to say the term of abuse should be reclaimed by British-Asians from the racists? These were points I was debating recently with some friends of mine about the "P" word, shortly before I came across this song from Kash "The B.A.D." Chaudhary.

DJ Supreme aka Soops ft. Icepick – Just Me and You MP3 [Backbone]

Would you believe it has been eight years since we covered DJ Supreme's Turntable Trixters DVD? Well it has, its been too long and finally DJ Supreme has come out of retirement. Apparently this song, an underground single featuring The Icepick has been bubbling around since last summer, but this is the first time it has come across my radar. The track has recieved a 'soft' release, but has been brewing nicely on Soundcloud and Youtube receiving a lot of plays and positive feedback, and so its time to spread the word!

Better known for their Dnb / UK Garage sound its not the first time Chase And Status have taken a surprising foray into the world of Hip Hop. Each time they do its been rather successful. Hip Hop is obviously at their heart and having made your money with hit singles it becomes possible to indulge in whatever you want and also attract some quality features to your dalliances.

Benny Diction And Able8 – RPM / Take Off MP3 [Boom Bap Professionals]

RPM is the third single taken from the critically acclaimed LP 'Life Moves' and features fellow Punning Clan member Tony Skank and songstress Melody Myla and is backed with the bonus track 'Take Off' and the instrumental of RPM. Its a nice package and whilst RPM has a couple of cliched elements its production is never the less comprised of heavy bumping production with a groaning bassline from Able8 for Uncomfortable Beats accompanied with summery vibed vocals of Melody Myla.
