NOVELIST – REST IN PEACE

Lewisham MC Novelist drops a new instrumental in memory of lost friends: “This goes out to all my dead bro’s,” he says on SoundCloud.  “Special shout out to my young donny MDOT who just passed.  Ruff Sound Movement Nationwide.”  The new beat follows ‘Casper Riddim‘ and ‘Hoax‘ as the self-declared founder of the Ruff Sound…

NOVELIST – HOAX

A mere twenty four hours after dropping new instrumental ‘Casper Riddim‘, Novelist releases another new track in the form of ‘Hoax’.  The Lewisham Grime artist is back on the mic this time, but the track is also tagged with the intriguing ‘Ruff Sound Movement’.  Are these off-cuts from the debut album on which he’s currently, or…

NOVELIST – CASPER RIDDIM

As evidenced by recently released self-produced tracks like ‘Break In Your House and ‘Street Politician‘, Novelist is every bit as capable at making bits as he is on the mic.  The Lewisham don’s latest effort is entitled ‘Casper Riddim’, and it’s a sinister, menacing track which he’s dubbed the “new sound out of South London, Lewisham going worldwide.”…

BAAUER – Aa

Featuring the singles ‘Day Ones‘, ‘Kung Fu‘ and ‘Temple‘, Baauer’s new album ‘Aa’ is now available in full.  In the main, it’s an incendiary collection of forthright Trap-tinged Dance music, but there’s an air of synth-y sophistication throughout that keeps things incredibly fresh.  Stream below via Spotify, click here to download via iTunes.

BAAUER – DAY ONES [VIDEO]

Baauer recently premiered new track ‘Day Ones‘ on The Late Show with a raucous performance featuring Leikeli47.  The track has now been given an equally raucous video, as the MC performs alongside Novelist amidst some kind of urban recreation of the Civil War.  The track will feature on Baauer’s upcoming album, ‘Aa’ [March 18], stream…

NOVELIST – BREAK IN YOUR HOUSE

Gassed at being featured on OVO Sound Radio last night, Lewisham MC Novelist releases new track ‘Break In Your House’.  The self-produced track begins with the most rudimental of Grime beats, which quickly escalates into all-out assault as Nov takes the mic.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

BAAUER – DAY ONES [FT. LEIKELI47 & NOVELIST]

In an explosive performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Baauer shared some pretty exciting news, along with new track ‘Day Ones’.  The track features ski-masked Brooklyn spitter Leikeli47 and Lewisham Grime MC Novelist.  It’s an epically unbridled assault, which lands in some exciting new territory between Baauer’s patented EDM Trap and London’s Grime.…

NOVELIST – STREET POLITICIAN

Novelist calls new track ‘Street Politican’ “anti-establishment music”.  This, coupled with the track’s artwork and the fact that it samples David Cameron’s House of Commons address following the 2011 London riots, doesn’t exactly add up to a subtle account of inner-city political unrest.  Grime, however, isn’t about proceeding with caution: Novelist openly vents over an aggressive beat from Fool’s…

NOVELIST – LINKING GASH [FT. FAULTSZ]

“This ones for all the mandem when their link goes wrong”, says Novelist on new track ‘Linking Gash’.  The Lewisham MC teams up with The Square’s Faultsz on a new track that centres around the struggles that come when, well, linking gash.  The beat was produced by Nov himself, and it has to be said there’s…

NOVELIST – ENDZ

Novelist has been dropping hints about his debut album for a minute, but his first official release since ‘1 Sec EP’ came this week with ‘Endz’.  The electronic percussion in the minimal beat harks back to the late eighties.  This concept is borne out in the video which has that grainy, VHS feel you’d get from cassette recordings of the early…
