Raz Simone – Sometimes I Don’t

Usually I post a child-friendly mixture of electro-pop, indie and folk, and sometimes I don’t. Last year Seattle-based duo Sam Lachow and Raz Simone dropped the ‘5 Good Reasons’ EP to an expectant fanbase, receiving widespread acclaim for the quality of work and racking up nearly 15,000 downloads. Fast forward six months and Raz has […]

OCD: Moosh and Twist – Top of the World

Philadelphia duo Moosh and Twist, or ‘OCD’ as they are collectively known, are childhood friends-come hip-hop superstars in waiting. Their mixtapes have been turning heads and pricking ears for the last couple of years and this week saw their latest effort ‘Back to the Basement’ released via DatPiff. Much like their previous releases, OCD have […]

Pez – The Game

It’s hard to believe that it has been over four years since we saw Pez release his masterful ‘A Mind of My Own’ back in 2008. Since then he has faced problems with his health, formed his own record company and been confronted with the notoriously difficult prospect of creating a second album. 2013 will […]

Guante & Big Cats – Lightning

Big Cats’ beats and Guante’s bars are much like a marriage between two individually gorgeous people. A marriage that results in true happiness, two kids, a holiday home, no debts, no medical problems and not to mention fantastic love making. The two together are insightful, intricate and their connection and chemistry undeniable. ‘You Better Weaponize’ […]

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. Spent largely in student bars and in ‘dorm rooms’ quite a percentage of my time was taken up listening to new music, and somehow, one track that seemed to completely bypass me, but seemingly had been picked up by everyone else on the entire planet was Die Antwoord’s […]

Earl Sweatshirt – Chum

Earl Sweatshirt is a pedigree rapper, with his father a famous South African poet and his fellow Odd Future members Tyler The Creator and Frank Ocean part of hip-hop royalty, Sweatshirt has both inherent and acquired skills that set him apart from his contemporaries. After a number of collaborations within the Odd Future collective and […]

Joey Bada$$ – World Domination

Having featured on Mac Miller’s ‘America’, Joey Badass is not a complete unknown in regards to the American hip-hop scene and thankfully for us his tight cameo on a track, that has received over two million Youtube views, has forced his solo work to the surface. 2012 saw the release of two Badass mixtapes (that […]

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. Seth Sentry is the Tarantino of Australian hip-hop – not the most prolific, but what he releases into the world is poetic, considered and elegant. Sentry’s […]

Oddisee – American Greed

June 12th will see Oddisee release his much anticipated debut album ‘People Hear What They See’ and in amongst a host of attractive tracks that have been floating about in the virtual world, ‘American Greed’ stands out as one which could see him launched into the hip-hop stratosphere. The track powers up through a audial […]
