Biz Markie – Just a Friend

Today I’ve decided to show just how much of a sheep I truly am and jump aboard the ‘throwback’ express. Although I’ve uploaded a few tracks that have been fluttering about for a number of years, ‘Just a Friend’ shows me venture into the Eighties for the first time and, given that I was born […]

Die Antwoord – Enter The Ninja

For me 2009 was a good year.

Like many  battlers, Bowers […]

Seth Sentry – Float Away

After a couple of months hiatus due to exams and hand-in’s, I rise like the proverbial phoenix with news of an absolute steamer from one of my favourite artists.
