No stranger to the music industry, Luton-based Slippy Skills has been instrumental in reigniting the flames of a floundering live scene by hosting shows by Fabio, Jumpin Jack Frost, Cause4concern, DJ A.M.C, Philth, EBK, Bryan Gee, Voltage and Ed:it as well as supporting iconic UK artists.
Midnight aka Mids stayed on at the 0521 studio to lay down his own live session. Expressing his hopes for a better life this is a considered introduction over a classical piano lick. Lyricism, confidence, flow, cadence, character, delivery and entertainment value.
SE28 Greenwich / Thamesmead Streets Most Favourite (SMF) collective members Paul Stephan and Qunicy OG together are 28 Kingz. They are back with a high energy drill / grime influenced track with a repetitive child's music box type riff entitled Gbedu.
Midnight is now releasing material via the Global Distortion Records label. This first lyric video is for the track Reload which features Jade and is produced by The Black Falcon which is Crusada's producer alter ego. Semi sung lyrics and keyboard backings make for a highly musical offering.
Leicester's Strizzy Strauss returns with more conscious lyrics on Man In The Mirror on which he lets us know that there is more to life than money. This one is produced by Sik Sense who offers up a stinging banger adorned with horns and smashing lo-fi drums that crunch. Released via i.e Records.
Tom Caruana returns with another expertly crafted instrumental - Bunsen Burner. Super funky, an ode to all the breaks its all popping off in here with the moniker burner adptly assigned. Horns, crisp drums, bass, you name it Tom has it in the mix.
Taken from the majestic album 'Hostile Leadership', 'Smoke and Mirrors' is still as potent now as when it was first released in 2014. Cyclonious focuses on making timeless music within the spectrum of being in full control of ones self! This is the only project thus far that Sheffield based Chairman Maf has entirely produced as a collaborative project.
