TimingIsEverything-BeardedMagazine

British online Bearded Magazine report on a wide range of new independent artists of various genres, providing reviews, features, news and video coverage.

They have an “Introducing…” series of features where they “focus on artists we think are worth shouting about

They have just published one such feature on Detroit MC Kid Vishis who released his debut album “Timing is Everything” on 22nd July 2104.

The feature focuses mainly on the new release, while providing some background : “Being the younger sibling of an already established musical force can often be of detriment to your success…however, when it comes to Detroit-style rap, with all its grit, Kid Vishis isn’t finding it difficult to escape from Royce da 5’9”.

Describing Kid Vishis’ rhymes as flows with “lyrical flair & poignancy, dropping truth bombs….no gimmicks, just pure vocal dexterity“, the album is recommended for those looking for “real roots rap, with bold, confident rhymes spat over crisp beats

VerbalSwardz-Bearded

British online publication Bearded Magazine covers many genres of music and has consistently championed new artists they feel have genuine quality and talent.

On the day of the release of his new “Verbal sWARdz” EP, they have published an introductory feature on north London Emcee and producer Iron Braydz which acknowledges the work he has put in to date, whether when based in NYC working with DJ J-Ronin’s All Elements crew, Sean Price, Guilty Simpson and Sav Kills, or via his previous landmark releases Devil May Cry and Holla @Braydz.

One of the UK’s most highly rated lyricists for a number of years, both at home & abroad and together with the rest of his Triple Darkness crew, the article reflects “True hip-hop in the UK is reserved for underground scenes and hidden-away locales. There’s not many who can take the style to the mainstream and retain integrity – Tinie who? – but if Braydz continues the way he does, there’s gonna be a helluva lot of people clamouring to get involved.

“Verbal sWARdz” is only the first of a series of releases planned from Iron Braydz in the year ahead – be on the lookout for this guy and check the full feature at Bearded Magazine

The EP includes features by Prince Po, Sean Price, Triple Darkness, DJ Shortee Blitz, Phat Kat, Kyza and Skriblah and is available now from Iron Braydz’ BANDCAMP

He marked the EP’s release by launching the new video for Rambo today featuring Kyza and Skriblah. It was shot in east London recently by Global Faction. Some quality visuals here, check it out on Youtube

Keep up to date with Iron Braydz on twitter @Braydz and the publication @BeardedMagazine. You can also connect with the guys Kyza @MrSaySo and @Skriblah

Expect to see much more international media coverage on this release. All press & media inquiries about Iron Braydz, the Verbal sWARdz EP, or dj requests for full quality radio edit mp3s of “Rambo” can be sent to UrbanElite PR HERE

RPL-BeardedMag

British online publication Bearded Magazine sets out “to generate coverage for independent labels & artists regardless of genre, background or how fashionable they are

They do just that via features, interviews, reviews, news, videos and their editorial policy isn’t driven by any other factor other than if they feel the artist merits the support. They are the latest, via guest contributor Leland Gill, to take a listen through the new album by London’s rapper and producer Apex Zero.

“Reality Provoking Liberation” is his debut solo album, out on 28th October, having previously released and performed live as part of the duo First and Last, who are still very much in force, and the group The Pantheonz on Zenn-La. Apex Zero’s reputation for conscientious lyricism delivered with a fierce flow developed in these early days and is still very much evident in the new album

The article opens “While other artists brag about changing the game, Apex Zero aims higher in his mission to wake up the world and educate them on the many corrupt systems in place today. In Reality Provoking Liberation, he pulls no punches in his lyrics as he spits about current inequality and organising to forge a better world” which in itself is as good a summary of the overall vibe to this album as any yet made. It’s a mix of this and other key factors which has made this such an impressive debut solo release, one picked up by a wide cross section of the media, and you can read more about the magazine’s thoughts on it HERE

The album launch event will take place upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL on Saturday 7th December from 8pm – 1am. Also appearing will be Caxton Press, Iron Braydz, DJ A.Gee (Itch FM) and host Peaches. Price is £5.00 on the door and the nearest tube is Aldgate East. More about the venue can be found at www.vibe-bar.co.uk

You will also be able to hear Apex Zero live on radio shortly, starting with tomorrow, Wednesday 23rd October on Reprezent Radio from 8pm with Tarek, on Saturday 26th October from 8.30pm with DJ Sammy Jay on Itch FM, and with Mr 13 on Bang FM from 10pm on Tuesday 29th October. Always makes an interesting interviewee, so definitely catch that if you can!!

Meanwhile, take a listen to the single off his album A Meeting of the Continents featuring Hasan Salaam and Iron Braydz, and be on the lookout for a brand new video for Absolute Zero being launched in the next couple of weeks

There’s a lot happening with Apex, so keep up to date with him on twitter @ApexZero00 and check the official website www.firstandlastpride.co.uk for more information and further social media links. Thanks to Richard at Bearded, and you can follow them on twitter @BeardedMagazine

MagnaCarta-BeardedMagazine

Ben Bradford is the latest journalist to sit down with London’s Melanin 9 and speak with him on his new album “Magna Carta”, previous releases “144,000” and “Orion’s Stencil” and his pick of current artists and the general hip hop scene today

The album was one of UK hip hop’s standout releases of 2012, and the amount of press coverage in the UK and overseas is testament to the appreciation of the quality of lyricism on display. Singles and videos for “Landslide”, “Organized Democracy” and “White Russian ft Roc Marciano” have received international radio airplay and online support, in some cases to an unprecedented level.
