If there is any album that you buy this year, instead of downloading (legally of course), it’s Brotherman’s ‘The Dark / The Light’. The packaging is the most original I’ve seen in UK Hip Hop. The project is a double EP, 6 tracks on each so effectively it’s a 12 track album on two CDs. Each CD has its own sleeve, they slot together to combine the light and dark inspired artwork and to form one jewel case sized package… argh, you’ll just have to buy it to understand what I mean!
Mohammad Yahya and Abdul Rahman comprise the Muslim rap group Blind Alphabetz, so named because so many people are blind to the topics they sing about. Check out what they said to Lady Jay UK when she recently caught up with one half of the duo - Iron Braydz.
Brotherman’s lyrical substance, paired with the warmth and clarity of his voice make him an accessible and exciting new performer, and a breath of fresh air in a stagnating home-grown scene.
First Man is a production duo comprised of Adam Midgely and Jamie Reddington who first got together in 2001 and have produced for some big names like Lemar and Skinnyman. This release on Silent Soundz features four excellently produced UK hip-hop cuts featuring a variety of vocal contributions from Skinnyman, Black Twang, Ayak and finally major label soul singer Charlie Brown as well as Yungun.
As regular readers and my mates from Leeds will know, I'm a long-time fan of more or less anything associated with LowLife Records. However, I've been particularly looking out for Verb T since hearing the Braintax-produced "So Cool" on Kam's "Life Before 40" promo mix.
To celebrate the release of Yungun & Mr Thing’s incredible new album, “Grown Man Business”, Silent Soundz brings you a night of the best hip-hop money can buy. The UK’s freshest record label will be showcasing their roster in this unmissable one-off event, taking place at Cargo in London on September 12th (see flyer below).
Yungun & Mr Thing are back with their stunning new single “Forget Me Not”. Taken from their forthcoming collaboration album, “Grown Man Business”, this is the duo at the top of their game. Comprising three solid tracks, the varied selection ensures there’s something here for everyone.
Bring It Back To Basics is the exceptional new LP from Verb T and Harry Love, being co-released by Silent Soundz and Medication Records this March. After the incredible response to their single Showbitchness in 2002 it was only right that the duo would go on to create this full-length collaborative project.
