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.

There have been a couple releases from the EP so far, the audio for “Millennium” featuring Organized Konfusion’s Prince Po and most recently the new video for “Dredd”. Check them out

RPL-Sampleface

The British media coverage has been building in the lead up to the release of the new album “Reality Provoking Liberation” by London hip hop Emcee and producer Apex Zero

His debut solo album, he has come up through the city’s live scene and released tracks as part of the duo First and Last and also the group The Pantheonz of Zenn-La. This is where his fierce delivery style and conscientious lyricism first came to the fore, and marked him out as one to watch for the future. Very much in the traditions of British artists such as Phi Life Cypher, Blak Twang, Lowkey, Triple Darkness and Akala, Apex engages with a wide range of political and social issues in his verses, and also has a significant hand in the production side of things along with his First and Last colleague OMeziah

The UK’s online blog Sampleface has built a strong following recently for their coverage of events, releases, news and features, and regular contributor Taytula Burke put the album under the microscope.

The review opens “The name is clue enough that this is not a trap, ratchet or dance music offering. The 12 track project is a non-stop call to overthrow an oppressive system that has everyone around the world under the cosh” and gets to the heart of the matter quickly in deciphering the rapper’s motivation, meaning and message to the world while also addressing the production techniques involved. Summarizing “Apex Zero is definitely a gifted emcee and I think given the unstable times we are living in, this for some, could be a soundtrack to revolution.” you can read the entire article HERE

Check out the single Spray The Roof featuring OMeza Omniscient and Invincible Armour, and the video for Chaotic Revolt

It is likely that the re-arranged album launch event will take place in London in early December, with the exact date to be announced shortly. Meanwhile, any further media or press inquiries about the album, or dj requests for full quality radio edit mp3s can be sent to UrbanElite PR HERE
