21 December 2013  -  2:32 pm

Kendrick Lamar has dropped the video for Sing About Me Part 1 with artist Eddie Peake to collaborate on this creative visual.  This is one of the stand out tracks for me on the album, the beat is perfect and you get this melancholic vibe a lot of hip hop just doesn’t give you nowawadys. Check out the visual masterpiece directed by Darren Romanelli below.

{New Music} Jack Shaw – Paris EP

16 December 2013  -  3:04 pm

Jack Shaw has released his Paris EP for the masses. DJ Jden and Jack Shaw make up the production for this great sounding project. My favourite cuts are Lanterns (Bassn8s Remix) and Heroes. The sound is plethora of guitar and beats mixed with the Bassn8s sound. Jack‘s voice is the key here, you know he’s on to something special and one to look forward to in the future.

{New Music} Mr Bigz – My Funked Up Soul [Mixtape]

14 December 2013  -  5:52 pm

Bigz has returned with My Funked Up Soul unleashing 16 funk infused tracks to keep us going into the new year.

Turkish Dcypha has come hard with the production. One of my favourites is The Ride featuring J. Warner who does something special on the chorus.

All the tracks feel very familiar, however Bigz has re-invented and relighted the funk fire for the music lovers who miss those funk classics.

Bigz gets nostalgic with the Trouble Man, a nod to Marvin Gaye and the funk he brought.

Another great track Shook Up takes us back to the Mary Jane Girls’s classic All Night Long. Bigz’s flow is quite effortless and the throwback is essential to any avid music listener.

I think my favourite cuts have to be Hearts Desire (for the undeniable funk) & Master Class (for that perfect 90′s hip hop vibe)

If you love James Brown, The Isley BrothersEarth Wind & Fire and Bootsy Collins, you will love this project!

Head over to Soul Culture to have a listen to the mixtape.

{New Video} A$AP Mob – Trillmatic feat. A$AP Nast & Method Man

7 December 2013  -  7:23 pm

Hip hop is a very predictable game nowadays, with a lot of artists opting for bass heavy productions and formulas. There is always the exception now & again, and here we have it in the form of Trillmatic. The track by A$AP Mob featuring A$AP Nast & Method Man, is a head nod to 90′s hip hop from N Y, and doesn’t disappoint. I got flashbacks from Nas & Mobb Deep when i first heard this. Lets hope we here more of this sound next year in 2014!
