Oblique Strategies (Cappo and Mr Brown) 'Thick And Thin' taken from the We Stay True compilation album 'Assembly'. This one has a big, but sparse beat with a mixture of single piano notes and additional piano flourishes. Cappo drops in his own unique style giving everything he spits on a hard edge.
World status 2020-21; a write-off, one to be struck from the record, ‘Null And Void’ if you will. This hasn’t stopped Kid Acne kicking on and bringing what he calls “the difficult fifth album” to the Lewis Recordings megaplex. Full of Yorkshire say-so, his inimitable strain of hip-hop delivers the mind-bending with everyman knowhow.
This month Whirlwind D traces the history of hip hop in Nottingham, UK. The show begins with the early B Boy scene and of course the iconic Rock City before moving into the early Notts rap records from the likes of MC Fizal Eff, DJ Quick, MSD, DJ Mink and KID to name a few.
'Cognoscenti' featuring Confucius MC, taken from 'Raw Pastiche', the album by Oblique Strategies (Mr Brown and Cappo). Cappo opens with his usual no nonsense verbals and hard hitting style of delivery. Surprisingly Cons steps up and follows in the same vein dropping just as much heat.
Hot producer TULIP88 drops his brand new single with visuals "Hidden Notes" featuring Cappo and Franky Bones. Its a kinda sparse beat, but allows Cappo to come devastatingly hard as usual. Franky Bones drops jazz lounge piano riffs which juxtapose against the rest of the track but fill out the vibe.
A veritable collection of UK stalwarts come together for this release. Cappo raps and Mr Brown produces. Bleach and Blue Flames is the latest track to be taken from the November released LP 'Raw Patsiche', the new album by Oblique Strategies.
