RIP Derek B

Very sad news is that pioneer Derek B aka EZQ aka Derek Boland (born 15 January 1965) has passed away from a heart attack at Charing Cross hospital. He was just 44 and everyone who followed Hip Hop's origins in this country will remember his name and contribution fondly. He was one of the first to make a name for himself in UK Hip Hop from appearances on Top Of The Pops, singles that reached the heights of the charts and his 1988 Bullet From A Gun LP.

9th Wonder – Remixes 1 EP [Ill Will]

9th Wonder continues his slightly worn habit of remixing Nas; this time round giving some of the hits he’s missed such as ‘Made You Look’, ‘Get Down’ and ‘I Can’ the trademark soul stamp. I’ve been impressed by 9th in the past - the first Little Brother LP was sick as were highlights of the Minstrel Show, The Formula and not forgetting the amazing Murs: 9th Edition EP, but this EP could put a small horse to sleep.
