Breathin

Veteran hip hop duo Constant Deviants release their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” through their own Six2Six Records imprint on 12th May 2015.

Producer DJ Cutt and emcee M.I., now based in New Jersey and Baltimore respectively, have today released the second official video taken from the new project. The follow up to “The Right Moment” released late last year, “Breathin” incorporates the classic Constant Deviants sound. A symbiotic mix of Cutt’s jazz and soul sampled beats complimenting M.I.’s smooth flow as he delivers another cerebral masterclass in the art of storytelling.

The video was filmed in Baltimore and directed by J Powell

VerbalsWARdz-Blacksheep

North London Emcee & producer Iron Braydz release his new Verbal sWARdz EP on 14th April, the first since his 2012 mixtape Holla @ Braydz

The first of a series of new solo releases over the next 12 months for the newest member of Triple Darkness, he will also be appearing in a new independent film “Night Bus” directed by Simon Baker who picked up several awards for his “Paralympic” series for Channel 4.

British online hip hop magazine Blacksheep are one of the first to run the rule over the 10 track EP, and the review, afforded a 4 star rating opens with a desription of Braydz as having “talent to spare: verbally dextrous, insightful, passionate, determined with playful wordplay; enough to set him aside from the competition.

A track by track synopsis follows before reviewer Andrew Kay summarizes “Verbal Swardz conjures up memories of classic Wu-Tang Clan with retro samples and drum patterns, with additional complexity in the production. Iron Bradyz is a talented and passionate MC- it comes across every time he rhymes. There’s a lot going on here and this deserves to be consumed by those who love a proper U.K MC thinking outside the musical box.

RPL-WordplayMagazine

British online & physical publication Wordplay Magazine cover all the elements of hip hop, music, breakin, graffiti, fashions, deejaying and more.

With healthy quality controls, they report on the best hip hop from around the world and remain of course supporters of the homegrown UK scene. It’s a great read for fans of traditional hip hop culture, hip hop heads and those wanting to learn more.

Their contributor Delphina Scott cast en eye over the debut solo album by West London’s Apex Zero. Releasing on 28th October, “Reality Provoking Liberation” is the follow up to his mixtape “The Pulse of the Awakening” and he may also be known to some as part of the city’s First and Last duo as well as performing with The Pantheonz of Zenn-La

The review opens : “There are a growing number of emcees on this side of the pond i.e the UK or maybe more appropriately ‘The Belly of The Beast” who are perfectly aware of the governmental pressures that are being heaped upon the 99%. Apex is part of this uprising and he continues with what would seem to be his mission launch a full assault on the system using his self described ‘Neo Hardcore’.

His energetic & passionate flow addressing a range of political & social issues is touched upon “Apex Zero’s style is lyrically dense but not un-fathomable and it’s likely some of the knowledge he kicks may push some people to learn about things schools don’t teach. He has a full on lyrical machine gun approach via his rapid unrelenting flow.” and in summary reflects “Apex brings us plenty of food for thought and production that’s full of atmospheric strings and tuff beats. Indeed his album is a 12 course meal. 12 tracks of nourishing revolution! Don’t sleep on it.

The album launch party takes place on Saturday 2nd November at London’s Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, Shoreditch E1 6QL.

The UK’s leading online youth broadcaster SBTV was set up by young entrepreneur Jamal Edwards a few years ago while still in his teens. For overseas readers, he built the site up from filming freestyles of new artists all over London, throwing them up on Youtube, and the view rate was literally massive.

Fast forward to today and he still supports the UK scene but also has content from some the biggest international artists around. When he’s not mixing with Virgin owner Richard Branson or Prince Charles, he’s appearing on BBC Breakfast TV promoting his new book. It has been quite a phenomenal rise for a brand now valued in the millions on the stock market. If you didn’t know the name before, research it!

His in house team also provide news, features and reviews, and the site’s Fiona Guest is the latest to run the rule over the new album by ethemadassassin. Most associated with Greensboro NC, the now LA based rapper released his third solo album “Soul on Fire” on Tuesday 17th September.

The review is headed “a potent mixture of lyrical agility and social consciousness” and is summarized “Soul On Fire is a mature drop from a seasoned MC, with a breadth of experience and skill under his belt. If you’re ready to hear the emotional realness of what E terms his ‘book of life,’ give it a listen.” Read the whole review HERE
