LOVE SAVES THE DAY 2017 – PICK OF THE LINE-UP

The festival season is very nearly upon us.  So close in fact that Bristol’s Love Saves The Day is little over a month away.  Entering its sixth year in Eastville Park, the two day festival takes place this 27th and 28th May, showcasing a huge variety of genres and bringing together an extraordinary mix of…

KENDRICK LAMAR – DNA [VIDEO]

Kendrick Lamar enlists the help of acting legend Don Cheadle in the new video for ‘DNA.’  The second visual to be taken from recent album ‘DAMN.‘ is every bit as compelling as the first [‘HUMBLE.‘] as Cheadle interrogates Lamar, before succumbing to his spell and going toe-to-toe with the Compton MC for the remainder of…

OSCAR #WORLDPEACE X RAGZ ORIGINALE X 808CHARMER X KNUCKS – CLEAN

Minikingz bring together four prodigious young talents on ‘Clean’.  Producer Ragz Originale and MC Oscar #Worldpeace are no stranger to collaboration [see #Worldpeace’ recent ‘Recluse‘ EP for evidence], but the new track also throws 808Charmer of 808INK and North London’s Knucks into the mix.  ‘Clean’ is essentially a uniquely laid-back posse cut from some of the capital’s most…

NXWORRIES – SCARED MONEY

Anderson .Paak & Knxwledge pay homage to their favourite flick ‘Paid In Full’; visually re-enacting some of their favourite scenes and re-creating parts of the 1988 set in the year.  The duo released ‘Yes Lawd!‘ under the name Nxworries on Stones Throw last year, which is set to be remixed and re-released.  To that end, the epilogue that…

SAM GELLAITRY – ESCAPISM III

Sam Gellaitry follows volumes one and two of his ‘Escapism’ series with a third EP on XL Recordings.  ‘Escapism III’ is every bit as intriguingly synthetic as its predecessors, but far less in-your-face.  It’s an altogether more nuanced version of the Gellaitry formula, its a sound that’s developed since its 2015 origins but has lost nothing along the way.…
