Foreign Beggars Live At Jazz Cafe 12/2/2013

Foreign Beggars Live At Jazz Cafe 12/2/2013

Although I wasn't there to witness the inevitable majesty of Wednesday's show, Tuesday's show was fantastic nevertheless. The reunion and 10 year anniversary of the Asylum Speakers album, featuring artists and full band made this a landmark of UK Hip Hop history. With both shows sold out, Dark Circle opened up, having travelled from Germany and Iceland, and set the tone for an incredible evening of music.

Dr Syntax – Hire Me MP3 [Dented Records]

After a notable absence from the scene, one of the UKs most highly regarded lyricists Dr Syntax returns with a corker of a track that will doubtlessly add to his reputation as one of the most unique and talented emcees in the game. Given the unprecedented amount of twentysomethings currently twiddling their thumbs on the dole, Hire Me is a timely release brimming with Syntax's trademark self-deprecating humour.
