Skepta's been on a tear of late, what with manning the boards on Wiley's On A Level and his recent return to the essence with That's Not Me. Now he's jetted over to the Big Apple to link with Wiki of RatKing for the remix. The video popped up a couple of days back only to be blocked. Now it's free for your viewing pleasure.
With just two days to go before Hudson Mohawke lets his Chimes EP loose on the masses, the Glaswegian producer reveals a piece he made four years ago, which you'll find on the project when it's released next week. King Kong Beaver, baby.
UPDATE: If the stream isn't working for you, try your luck at Entertainment Weekly.
Forget what so and so said about German Whip marking grime's revival, they were wrong. This, however, is 2004 distilled and reintroduced for a new day. Flying was meant to be the lead single from Snakes & Ladders, the follow-up to Wiley's humdrum bid for the charts, Ascent.
The LP was apparently binned, but now it looks like Big Dada is reviving the project. Going off of this, on which Skepta recaptures the Eskibeat sound perfectly, it should be a real treat for fans of unadulterated grime.
Two years ago Disclosure stole the UK's airwaves with Latch. At the time Schoolboy Q was in his Habits & Contradictions phase, and you would never have paired the two. Two years on and Disclosure's sleeper hit has since reached the upper end of the Billboard 100. And today you have this little remix, which kind of makes sense for Q post-Oxymoron.
The February 2014 release of Latch likely played no small part in Sam Smith winning America's heart, as he tours his debut album and wins praise. Including from Pretty Flacko, who recently lent his vocal signature to I'm Not The Only One.
Coops makes a big impression with his first to-camera appearance for SBTV. If you haven't picked up his Lost Soul set released at the start of the summer, do so. It's a must for all you boom bap bods and the man in question has bags of panache, something that's not easy to come by round these parts.
"Who is Gen Uchiha?", you ask. We'll be damned if we know anything about the man, other than he runs with Eat Good and he's just put together this tidy three-piece over a BADBADNOTGOOD instrumental. Expect more to follow.
Few can match Samson's work rate. For his next trick, the Edmonton street scholar presents Outlaw Vol 2. You know you're in good hands with Harry Love on the pads, and there's a roll call of eclectic features, including Cormega with a Mark Duggan namecheck.
The project is available now on iTunes. Watch the video for Fire Is Coming up top.
For all the vinyl heads among you, Hey!zeus.i is prepping the release of Holy Cow on 7" for next month, with both Kashmere and Jehst joining the parade on top form. Head to the release event @ the Silver Bullet, Finsbury Park on Wednesday. Until then...
