Roots Manuva - Facety 4:11 (prod. Four Tet)


Roots Manuva joins electronic music maestro Four Tet for his latest offering, a frenetic and brief piece that clocks in at a little over two and a half minutes. Cop from Ninja Tune for this and a B-side produced by Machinedrum. 




A Brief Timeline of the Chipmunk Fuckery



So Chip went at Tinie over some subliminals.



Some people including Big Narstie thought it was a dick move. 



Chip stood his ground. 



Some people laughed. 



And others responded on track. Bugzy Malone bodied this, no?




To be continued... 


Flako - Natureboy


London-based producer Flako has just presented his debut album proper with Natureboy, a work that takes his sound beyond the confines of an Akai's rubber pads, building on his former sound on Mesektet and other releases.

Try the LP and be sure to check for Kuku, below, which is a proper belter.




P Money - Gimme 2 Minutes (Video)


As if trouncing Big H at Lord of the Mics wasn't enough, P goes in on the former Meridian Crew member once again, even questioning the snitching between his former associates in connection with a shooting a decade ago

Off P Money's Originators EP. 





The Purist - Pyrex Scholar



You should already know what this is about. 2x features from Roc Marci, Your Old Droog, Freddie Gibbs, Maffew Ragazino, new name Tree and some butter beats to boot.


Joker Starr - MACKnificent


So it looks like Joker Starr has something of a concept album in the works, and by the sounds of the above, DJ IQ has provided a batch of on-point beats for the project. 

You can pre-order MACKnificent here


The Purist - Patina feat. Roc Marciano


The Purist adds to his excellent Roc Marciano collaboration Change with his new excellent Marci collaboration Patina, which you'll find on the Brit producer's Pyrex Scholar album due for release next week.

Before then, read what he had to say to Passion of the Weiss.




Kano - Hail (prod. Rustie) (Video)


Kano and Rustie's headbanger Hail gets the video treatment. Thrown in the mix is an equally monstrous new banger, that looks like it's probably called New Banger, previewed in the motor with Giggs and Ghetts on deck. Sounds like Rustie's lit a fire in K's belly.


Rewd Adams - Hunger Pains 2 (Mixtape)


It's been a good while since Rewd Adams made his introduction with Hunger Pains, back when he was known as Skandal. With three projects now under his belt he returns from a three year hiatus with the sequel to his debut. 

You can pre-order an unblended version ahead of its release on the 23rd of this month. Until then, check the DJ MK mix. 




MilkMakerz - The Anthems


The MilkMakerz - Jon Phonics and DJ Milktray - welcome you to their world, a place where sample chops, heavy bass and staccato percussion live side by side, and where Pen N Pixel inspired covers is a must. 




CAS - Nigella (Video)


CAS back. Footsie on the prod.s.

The half-dead shotter also made an appearance on former collaborator Faz Miyake's production Get It a short while ago, so check that. 


Skepta - Shutdown


Skepta's name has filled plenty of web space since that Brits performance had everyone and their nans opining on whether it was a righteous move in the face of a crusty and ignorant (and possibly racist) music establishment or tantamount to back-up dancing for an insufferable egotist. Or both. Either way, he now has a new anthem on his hands that will only give him more momentum.  




Under The Influence Trailer


A history lesson for all the youngers. No word of a release date just yet, but this has to be worth a watch when it sees the light of day later this year.
