Karl Hinds definitely deserves respect. Starting way back in 1993 he founded and put out drum and bass on the Assassin label. He then went on in 2000 to set up hip hop label Ill Flava Records. Self-producing and rapper on all his albums, Karl Hinds is definitely an entrepreneurial force to be reckoned with. I met up with him at his studio in Ilford for a serious discussion about his story so far in UK hip-hop and beyond.
Here we have details of a launch of a New monthly Night which is to put hip-hop back on the Map to London. It has been a long time, but long time stalwart DJ 279 of Choice FM is set to step back into doing regular gigs and for his new night - the re-launch of the famous Friday Nite Flavas he has chosen to hold it in Ladbroke Grove at Neighbourhood.
