Leicester based crew the JVF Clique are back with tales from their home - LE10 - Hinkley Town which is also assuming the nickname of Old Detriot. This is a banger with a hard and dirty vibe which sure as hell knocks. These guys have been quiet for a while but crew members Nipper and Chief have shown they know how to come back and do damage.
English rap outfit the JVF Clique has been working on their debut album "Alternative Income" for more than 2 years, and in that time the mixtape "Submerged Language" has dropped along with numerous exclusive tracks on www.jvfradio.com. Now the time has come to premiere the first exclusive release from the near complete album entitled "Rogue Agents". It is a tale of crazy Osama Bin Laden and dealings behind closed doors in the worlds of the CIA MI6 and the FSB.
We like Ed209 here and have given rave reviews to his previous production work on the earlier Exstatic based EPs. We are a bit confused as we have noticed another Ed209 doing some Dubstep or some other such stuff and we wondered if this was the same guy turning his skills to another genre. Well, never mind, he is now back to hip hop and for this, the last of the proposed Exstatic EPs he has pulled out all the stops with the vocalists he has got to perform over his beats.
Maze is from Leicester, Belgrave to be precise. He started DJing on pirate radio at 16 and soon hooked up with Oxford based rappers Thunda Tongue and Tung-Fu in 1994 and was at that time mentored by Spida Gill (RIP). 1997 saw Maze hook up with Kerfew for their earliest collaborations and since then he has been instrumental in the WCE (World Champion Entertainment) and MIC (Mother India’s Children) crews.
Not only is language a useful tool for communication, it is also one of the most powerful weapons that has been given to mankind. Allow me to introduce you to the JVF-Clique’s Submerged Language CD. The JVF-Clique are British hip hop artists from Leicester.
Kerfew was born and bred in Leicester and has been learning music since the age of 7 when he started to play the Tabla and Naal. Multi instrumented Kerfew also took up the trumpet and violin. He progress further in the music arena by linking with a pirate radio station where he rose from the ranks from taking calls, to doing the graveyard slot, through to getting on the primetime weekend shows.
