VerbalSwardz-PopCulturez

In the week of it’s release, British online multi genre music publication PopCulturez are the latest to review the new “Verbal sWARdz” EP by north London Emcee & producer Iron Braydz

The newest member of Triple Darkness has produced a mightily strong 10 track taster of things to come later in the year, with his own highly evolved wordplay & lyricism complimented by the contributions from Prince Po, Sean Price, Kyza, Skriblah, Phat Kat and several of his fellow TD members. Kiss FM’s DJ Shortee Blitz brings some quality turntablism on board in the track Dobermans

The review includes the summary “this release immediately has the sound of a Wu-Tang Clan affiliate project, and not just because of the samples used in the ‘Intro.’ Where many of today’s MCs are shifting their styles to suit commercial crowds, with dubstep, grime, or even dance-floor orientated club tracks providing the backing, Iron Braydz keeps things gully with a solid rap style that will please purists.

Read it in full HERE

Verbal sWARdz is available to the public now at http://braydz.bandcamp.com

You can hear the full audio stream of the EP on Soundcloud

Also check out the new video “Rambo” featuring Kyza and Skriblah, released earlier this week and shot in east London by Global Faction

MagnaCarta-Stereoboard

Another review of UK hip hop MC Melanin 9’s album “Magna Carta” which released on 3rd December 2012.

This one had slipped under the radar until today, but first published in January 2013, online magazine Stereoboard reviewer Jonny Rimmer has given this a massive vote of approval

Opening up with an overview of the shifts taking place right now in the UK scene, with more people switching attention to the “hip hop” community, he opens :

There are significant changes afoot in the world of UK hip hop. With grime is on the way out, and its established heads like Wiley and Dizzee Rascal moving towards poppy pastures new, hip hop is again gaining popularity in cities all over the UK. The battle scene is also making waves with Don’t Flop boasting now one of the biggest battle-league fanbases on the planet. Most tangibly though, there is a real sense that hip hop is now a real voice for young people seeking change – see the recently retired Lowkey and Logic’s ‘People’s Army’; M9 also fits this mould.

This is then followed by the opening salvo in relation to the album itself :

However, one cannot stress enough just how much of an accomplishment Magna Carta is. For starters, it sounds very little like a British album at all, snubbing garage for the sort of slow, meditative beats that you’d find on 90s noir records like Mobb Deep’s The Infamous. And the mood it establishes is gorgeous, with jazzy trumpets, saxophone and piano samples forming the backdrop to M9’s bleak urban narratives. Even though there are several different producers here, all of them match M9’s vision, tailoring their ideas to the MC’s aesthetic vision.

Offering a 4.5 / 5 rating, read the whole review HERE

Magna Carta is available digitally from iTunes and can also be ordered in CD physical format from http://m9ether.bandcamp.com

Here is a snippet version of the album on his own Soundcloud page

Melanin 9 is busy recording new material as well as setting up some dates, which will also include performing on the main stage at the Boom Bap Festival in the UK in September.
