Dark Fleet and Saturn Division presents... The second single taken from the new Tesla's Ghost EP "U-Boat Chess Games". This one is entitled Mediterranean Theatre and is once again produced by Relense and adorned with cuts by Evil Ed.
Symphony Of The Fallen is the second visual release from New Guardz soldier Ray Vendetta's new project Son of Floyd. This moody visual directed by Tommy Birtles pays homage to the dead as well as a display of bleak social commentary on London street life.
There is a whole heap of classic skills on display for this release from Cyrus Malachi. The Light We Cannot See features additional vocals by Maddy and production from longtime beatsmith Evil Ed.
De Facto Entertainment is proud to present 'Unicron' courtesy of Nottingham veteran Cappo aka Grizwald aka Grand Imperial aka etc. produced by boom bap aficionado Stealf. The consistent work rate combined with the deep abstract lyricism is why Cappo is regarded as one of the greats in UK Hip Hop and Stealf holds an impressive production resume which promises that 'Unicron' will live up to that reputation.
Melanin 9's Magna Carta (due to be released on the 3rd of December by Red Snow) has been two years in the making and is the London rapper's first album. The sound is a refreshing return to classic hip hop whilst staying firmly rooted in modern Britain. Magna Carta , at its core, is focused on old school hip hop values. In many ways it's an album that could fall under the umbrella of conscious hip hop, but M9 is set apart from other conscious rappers in the UK by having a greater focus on the stories you can touch with your fingertips.
June Bug is the third solo LP from East London emcee / producer and one fourth of The Colony - Cons... also known as Conspicuous. Cons has returned with a 12 track LP to follow up 2007's highly acclaimed The Family Photo Album. This time opting to hand over all production credits to some UK heavyweight beatmakers such as A H Fly, Apollo, Evil Ed, Apatight, S.Chu, M-Dot, Shears and S-Type, Cons has continued the soulful theme that has been the foundation of his previous work.
If it's beats you're looking for then look no further than Evil Ed's 'Edstrumentals Vol. 1'. It's 20 tracks of Evil Ed's best known instrumentals used by Yungun ('The Art of Celebration' and 'Nico Suave'), Task Force ('The Tournament'), Tommy Evans ('Alright/OK'), The Colony ('Back Up'), Asaviour ('Field Of Dreams') Conspicuous & Shameless ('Write A Song For Me'), Ricochet aka Ric Branson ('A New Way of Thinking' & 'No Pressure') and Jehst ('Alien').
At 15 tracks deep, coming in at just over 50 minutes, ‘The Get Together’ is no hard slog. I’ve already listened to it a few times today and am beginning again; it doesn’t get boring despite the outwardly conventional Hip Hop template.
