Faith SFX - Stay Schemin' vs. Rolling In The Deep


"Mashup" is a dirty word, except when Faith SFX has anything to do with it. Here he recreates Rick Ross's street banger Stay Schemin' and throws in vocals inspired by Adele's Rolling In The Deep and something from water sports fanatic R Kelly. Run a search for Faith SFX in the search bar above for more of the same.


Wiley - Hoverboard (Video)


It seems like there's no record label around that can keep up with Wiley's feverish output. Given up last month as a freebie, the unreadable MC redelivers Hoverboard with a video, touching on everything from being outnumbered and sliced in the face to not being a bear like Yogi. Grab the download below.



Sonnyjim - The Greatest Sin feat. AG (prod. Chemo)


Put one part AG of DITC together with Sonnyjim, add Chemo to the mix, leave to stand for five years and you have yourself The Greatest Sin. This previously unreleased song has been laying by the wayside since the Bronx's AG visited London in 2007. Now freshly bounced and with cuts from DJ Roast it's yours £1.25 and worth every penny.


Caxton Press - I Wanna See (Video)


Caxton Press's Manage and Kingpin tell the world what they wanna see. The only UK hip hop group named after Britain's first printing press have just released their album, Shame The Devil.


RapperTagUK #8 - Jehst



After a few weeks' wait, Jehst takes to Victoria Park to offer up his bars for those following RapperTagUK. East London tourists beware, Billy isn't happy with you being on his turf.

There's a good chance Capps will hit 'em with the ace and turn in the best of these to date. Cappo, where you at?


184 - Where's My Parade? (Compilation)


Although not a name you see plastered about, 184 has gradually built himself up an impressive repertoire with features from Jehst, Fliptrix, Chester P, Stig of the Dump, Jam Baxter, Kashmere and Dubble Edge to name just a few. Where's My Parade? is the man's choice picks from his catalogue and offers some real gems, like the Buggsy-featuring Down Dat Road and Sonnyjim's Standard Practice.



Ray Vendetta - Who Is Daddy Long Luv? (Free Album)


Ray Vendetta dons a gold medallion and gets his lothario on, serenading and dicking down chicks left, right and centre.




Fliptrix - Wylin Out (prod. Leaf Dog) (Video)


The big man of High Focus wyles out for the title track off his new EP, Wylin Out. Head to iTunes for the full works and be on the look out for his next, third album, Third Eye Of The Storm.


Tulisa Confirms N-Dubz Split


Sad news. OK! magazine recently revealed that N-Dubz have split. Speaking to X-Factor judge and bandmate Tulisa, the celeb-schmoozing mag confirmed that rap dwarf Dappy went AWOL some time ago and has failed to make contact.

UK All Day has long been a proud detractor of Nubz, even briefly locking horns with eminent US blog Nah Right's founder Eskay for advertising the band's music. As Eskay quickly pointed out at the time, Nah Right does not endorse their product, it was simply taking a cheque. Fair enough. And subsequent banners for McDonald's are proof that Nah Right has no advertising standards whatsoever.

R.I.P. Nubz. You will be sorely missed.

In loosely related news, Tulisa is currently trying to suppress the leak of an incriminating sex tape. If you have a link to said offending tape, ukallday@gmail.com.


Context - Drowning (prod. Great Skies) (Video)



Cracking visuals from Context for Drowning, which premiered on MTV on Friday. This is more of his own brand of vibed out, post-club comedown music. This borrows as much from the minimalist dubstep scene as it does from hip hop, and works all the better for it. Great Skies deserves nods for his sombre, stripped back effort here.

Pre-order the Drowning EP over at iTunes now.


Example - Changed The Way You Kiss Me feat. Ludacris (Remix)


Horsey pop peddler Example calls in a favour from Ludacris for this remix to Changed The Way You Kiss Me. UK All Day has always been a fan of Luda's larger-than-life, cartoonish spin on rap. Then he collaborated with Justin Bieber. And then he did this.



Simon Jr. - Aeroplanes (Beat Tape)


24-year-old button presser and knob twiddler Simon Jr. gets to jetsetting on his new beat tape,
Aeroplanes. Hit dude up on @simonjrbeats if you wanna know more.



Reggiimental - Touch feat. TrawR (Video)



Midlands mic controller Reggiimental eschews his boom bap sensibilities for an electro approach that pits hip hop against sci-fi stylings in this Tron-like video. Pick up the mp3 below.

Reggiimental - Touch feat. TrawR


Delusionists - Smash Bros. feat Relly & Zweli


Delusionists are back with yet another Lost Letter. There's no messing about with hooks here, just verse for verse from DBF, Relly, Ben Black and Zweli, with Slim Pickens on production duties. Definitely check for Underachiever and the previous Lost Letters found so far if you haven't already done so.



Kinetik - Year Of The Underdog feat. Jaunty & K-Nite 13 (Video)



Kinetik stays delivering wholehearted music. This time he spins Year Of The Underdog one more time, calling on newcomer Jaunty and K-Nite 13 to join him for the remix, all three tightly complementing each other.

Check Jaunty's new EP Once Again, One Day... here.


Roll Deep - Nasty (Video)


Roll Deep pop back up with new material that sounds distinctly different to their venture into the pop charts a couple of years back. It's difficult to pardon such wild extremes, but hey.


C4 - Off Track feat. JME, Frisco & Jammer (Boy Better Know Remix)


Birmingham newbie C4 manages to get grime royalty Boy Better Know on this remix to Off Track, handled by his brother and lauded producer Preditah. Full marks to Frisco for saying he'll stomp on your head like Ong Bak over feel-good garage.


Plan B - Ill Manors (Video)



Plan B takes a break from belting out soul numbers in finely tailored suits to tell rich boys and politicians to fuck off. There's no doubting Mr Drew's conviction on this one and he's distilled the London riots into less than four minutes of contempt. Not forgetting that he and his label will eat nicely off of this, unless of course Middle England decides to turn its back on him.


Skuff - Smash Anything (Free Download)


As a prelude to his album Destroy Everything, Skuff is giving away this 17-track collection with features from Dirty Dike, Inja, Phi Life Cypher and his longtime brethern Delegates of Culture. Name you price on this one.



Iron Braydz - Life's Ill (Teaser Video)


To pique your interest before his new mixtape Holla @ Braydz, Iron Braydz has leaked this teaser video for Life's Ill, which poaches an instrumental from Alchemist and is a nod to the North Weezy rapper's love for Cannibal Ox.


Benny Banks - Rack City (Video)


Benny Banks nicks Tyga's Rack City and does the beat way more justice than the gangly Young Money rapper.


Don't Stay In...


So it looks like this Friday's Suspect Packages Live is a must for all beat geeks. Not only are Jehst and Telemachus duking it out on the tables, but One-Handed Music's Paul White - master of weird and wonderful instrumentals and a heavyweight rap album - will be doing his thing.

Get to Vibe Bar, Brick Lane, before 8pm to dodge the £4 bar entry.


Jaunty - Once Again, One Day...


Sometimes music manages to capture a place in time. Here newcomer Jaunty kicks his shoes off and takes everything in his stride for this cohesive EP, almost entirely crafted by K-Nite 13. The story goes that Jaunty jetted off to Japan, only to arrive on the day of last year's Takishima disaster. Inspired by the tragedy, he penned Once Again, One Day...

You can name your price on this one, but bear in mind proceeds will be donated to tsunami relief.






Piff Gang - Blue Slims & A Bag Of Piff (Video)


The UK's waviest give it their whiffy piff schtick once again. Get your snapbacks and Ray Bans orn and stay steady piffin' it.


Chipmunk Signs To Grand Hustle


Diplomatic ties between the US and British rap scenes have never been tighter. Last year Whoo Kid endorsed Klashnekoff, Giggs, Wiley, Skepta and Ghetts, meanwhile Beat Butcha got credits on Mobb Deep's comeback project Black Cocaine. Estelle is doing the rounds with her new album and has remixes with Busta and French Montana. K Koke was picked up by Roc Nation in 2011, but not before Tinchy Stryder signed with Jay Z's label the previous year.

Now Chipmunk has signed the dotted line with TI's Grand Hustle imprint, joining Killer Mike, B.O.B, 8 Ball & MJG and fellow newbies Iggy Azaelia and Trae the Truth.


Telemachus - The Light feat. Jah Mirikle (Video)


The second video and B-side to Telemachus' latest single on YNR, the flip being Sheltering Sky with Jehst. Pick up a copy before the limited run is all out.


Sleepin' Giantz - Badungdeng


Two of the scene's giants - Rodney P and Fallacy - awaken for a 2-step collaboration with garage producer Zed Bias that fits these two veterans to a T. The trio have just released a three-track EP by the name of Black Gold, Badungdeng taking the lead.



Smiler - All I Know (Mixtape)


The guy who cussed out Klashnekoff - and just about everyone else and their mums - a couple of years back recently inked a deal with Warner Music and has been pushing his dupsteppy Delorean single with Wretch 32. This mixtape sees Faith SFX, Bigz and Wretchroboy all get a look in.

Booda French - Full Time feat. Von Pea (prod. Jaisu)


Tanya Morgan's Von Pea joins Booda French on this new one from the Ipswich rapper, which also sees Louis Den favourite Jaisu flex his production muscles. Get hold of the mp3 before the full release of EP Ventolin.



The Quaranteam - Thoughts On My Mind (Video)


The term "supergroup" is thrown about too loosely, but when Loudmouth, Pyro, Skillit, K Nite and Mentalist put their heads together you know you're in for something strong. Check their self-titled EP, if only for the postcode showboating on Stow Boys.


Dubbledge - EyeSeeYou (prod. Metabeats) (Video)


The standout from Dubble's Dubbledge vs The Boondocks, EyeSeeYou will officially list on Metabeats' forthcoming Caviar Crackle, a production album featuring Action Bronson, Oddisee, P.L.O, Zeroh, Ralph Rip Shit and Von Pea of Tanya Morgan to name a few.

This must be the most deft video that's been on here and should serve as a benchmark for others.

Watch out for Caviar Crackle on Associated Minds.


Aspects - Yes Please (prod. Akira Kiteshi) (Video)



Bristolian stalwarts Aspects return after a eight-year hiatus with some glitchy bashment on Yes Please. Get your gratis download below.



Sonnyjim - Trying To Get Home


Sonny links Brazilian producer Nel Sentimentum on the dreamy and vaguely wistful Trying To Get Home. If you don't want to hand over money to Steve Jobs' empire, hit Bandcamp below to stick a pound in the pot.



DJ DSK & Mystro - I Know You Got Sole (Video)


Mystro does his best Rakim rendition in this promo video for
Sole Heaven, which sees a sneaker freak dust off with some poor fellow's creps, but not before giving viewers a glimpse of her breasticles.

:p



DJ Muggs - Snap Ya Neck Back feat. Dizzee Rascal (Video)



DJ Muggs does his best Skrillex impression. Yawn. A couple of years behind the curve at the very least. Then again, the Cypress Hill DJ more or less wrote off UK MCs outright a decade ago and only now, nine years after
Boy In Da Corner dropped, he gets Dizzee on a song. Visionary.
