HorseshoeGang

West coast rap crew Horseshoe Gang release their new album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

They hit the headlines last year picking up the $500,000 rap battle challenge laid down by Funk Volume with their Half a Meal response. Hopsin spoke more on this to DJ Vlad TV in the past couple of days

The Long Beach group, featured over the past few weeks in a wide range of publications in the States, UK and Europe, are joined on this new single “Intro” by the elder brother KXNG Crooked. Danish production duo Jonathan Elkaer and DJ E.D.D.E.H. provide the electronic backdrop over which all five MC’s unleash their fierce lyrical firepower.

The single is available to buy now at the album’s pre-order spot on iTunes HERE

Look out for more national & international press coverage on the group in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, keep up to date with their latest news and views on TWITTER and FACEBOOK

After a series of buzz track releases in the past 12 months, the first official release due out in the autumn is her new “Hood House” EP, mashing up original club samples and ripping them apart with her renowned lyrical flow.

This mix of classic rap and house styles has not surprisingly been smashing the clubs & radio in New Jersey, Chicago and New York. The first leak “I Heard You Say”, which uses the sample from Dennis Ferrer’s “Hey Hey” featuring Shingai Shoniwa, was premiered by Complex Magazine on Monday

In November 2011, DJ Muggs came to Europe on tour in support of his new album “Bass For your Face”

He visited London to perform at Brixton Jamm, and we arranged for some affiliated press to coincide with the visit.

For those familiar with DJ Muggs and his involvement with Soul Assassins and Cypress Hill, it was a surprise to some that he appeared to have a musical departure into the world of dubstep, a sound which first emerged from Croydon in South London.

Dubstep has transferred across the Atlantic recently, with more clubs & events particularly in Canada and the United States’ west coast jumpin on the sound.

In the interview with Han O’Connor for MTV UK’s online MTV Wrap Up, Muggs explains that this isnt necessarily a major departure for him personally. Quoting the early influence of German electronic techno legends Kraftwerk, and working with Goldie and Grooverider on previous jungle / drum & bass collaborations, he explains the heavy 808 kicks were standard back seat furniture in LA cars, so the heavier, deeper the sound, the better the impact!

He touches upon his days with Cypress Hill and his work within various genres, obviously keen to look at how they can develop hybrid sounds and move in new directions.

He recorded the track Snap Ur Neck Back with London’s Dizzee Rascal, and it was premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show during Muggs’ short stay.
