River Nelson releases a brand new album produced by Lewis Parker. 'The Shape of The Sky' is the second full length album from River Nelson, after his critically acclaimed release 'The Rise and Fall of River Nelson'. The album is comprised of thirteen tracks that will inspire, motivate, and allow you to hear topics that aren't usually covered in Hip-Hop.
Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip's critically acclaimed debut album Angles was released in May 2008, just twelve months after the first fruits of their partnership had hit the airwaves and landed a top 40 chart position. After two years of solid touring Dan and Pip produced their follow up Logic Of Chance, and their burgeoning fan base made it a brace of Top 40 hits in March 2010.
When it comes to word-play and multis, Life MC doesn't half hammer them out. From crazy off-the-top-of-the-dome freestyles on YouTube to socially-conscious solo albums, he's an incredible talent from the underground UK Hip-Hop scene who's been doing this thing for a fair few years now.
The underground hip hop scene in the UK has gone through something of a revival in the past few years. It's easy to assume this is a response to the world at large; turbulent times make for more turbulent music. That said, the world has always been a turbulent place, at least if you're reading the right newspapers (or perhaps more accurately, not reading the wrong ones) and there's never a shortage of issues to be explored in hip hop.
During 2012's Boom Bap Festival Oliver Sudden and Luca Brazi were sat in front of the Graffiti wall with a crate of beer discussing a few ideas while watching the 645 Squad paint a burner. After collaborations on previous Granville Sessions material and discussions about each others production, they decided to pair up and go fifty fifty on beats and rhymes on an EP. Shortly after the festival season recovery period the Wednesday studio sessions kicked off. Beats were exchanged, verses were penned, beers were necked... and so on.
