Ande-PopCulturez

Rising Southern rapper & producer Ande Bishop is one of the most hotly tipped new talents emerging from the new wave of urban artists who have appeared on the radar recently

A co-founder of the American Roulette organization with others such as Londn Blue, the development of the platform to initially in effect showcase their production and sell beats to generating huge audience figures for their own solo material has been highly impressive.

Only in January this year did Ande come out from behind the desk to start recording his own material, and has enjoyed coverage of multiple track releases in many of the leading online publications in the United States. The partnership deal with Seven 13 Entertainment in the Spring has acted as a further springboard for Roulette to reach an even wider audience, and the release of his introductory EP “Ocean$” on 19th May marks another step forward in what looks like being a very productive path

The UK’s online PopCulturez have just reviewed the EP which you can read HERE

ande6

Ande cites a wide range of influences from his younger days, growing up in a household surrounded by the sounds of classic soul, r&b, hip hop and contemporary rap from the region, and his style has adapted a little of everything. The resulting EP has been noted for its fresh approach, with many eagerly awaiting the forthcoming album scheduled for later in the year

Here’s a taster from the EP, the official video for “Old Jay-Z Videos”

Keep up to date with him on twitter @2AndeBishop You can hear and buy the EP over on iTunes

Cincinnati’s Buggs tha Rocka re;eased his new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” this week, available as a free download from www.buggstharocka.com and also via the My Mixtapez App for mobile devices which in the space of 48 hours has received around 30,000 hits already.

There has been much international media interest in the release and artist over the past few weeks, which has seen Buggs conduct interviews with publications based in the USA, UK, Europe and New Zealand, and is in fact still doing so.

The latest press coverage comes from the UK, in the form of an interview with Rough Online and an album review by PopCulturez.

Buggs-RoughMagazine

In the feature published by Rough, Buggs discusses his earlier releases such as Mutant Level 5 which featured Little Brother, Sa-Ra, Freeway & London’s S.A.S., and his mixtape releases with DJ Clockwork, including The Wrath of Zeus. He speaks on the recognition he has received from his home city, having been named “Hip Hop Artist of 2014” at the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards and addresses the hip hop scene there, and those who have paved the way for others to follow.

The topic of discussion then switches to the re-emergence of lyricism in hip hop, a bi product of the throwback to the Golden Era which took place in the worlds of fashion, music and culture, and how he developed a working relationship over the past couple of years with Talib Kweli as well as his recent sit down with Pharrell Williams in Los Angeles.

Buggs-PopCulturez

PopCulturez is a multi faceted online covering most forms of music as well as other popular cultural outlets such as tv, lifestyle, film and news.

Their summarized style review concludes “Lyrically, Buggs delivers his thoughtful yet personal, at times autobiographical rhymes over heavy beats, samples and a frequent jazz tinted vibe…at 19 tracks in length, and clocking in at well over an hour, this offers some genuine bang for your buck.

Earlier in the week, to mark the release, Buggs released his new video “Religiously” featuring Donte from MOOD, shot in Los Angeles while there to perform at the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in November with Mac Miller & DJ Clockwork.

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.

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

RPL-PopCulturez

With the release of the debut solo album by London’s hip hop producer & rapper Apex Zero, “Reality Provoking Liberation”, an example of the impressive diversity of media interest is displayed in two reviews over the past 24 hours

Online magazine PopCulturez is a multi genre publication covering news, reviews, features by rock, country, pop and hip hop artists. Their review includes the opening salvo “From the outset, it is clear that Apex Zero is taking his music to an uncompromising place, with political rhymes coming at an unrelenting pace.“, the article then continuing to note “while many rappers are caught up in the streets or tales of club-hopping, this young MC looks further due to his studies of socialist philosophy, politics, and African history….and has also taken inspiration from a number of other British MCs, with strong hints of names like Terra Firma, Lowkey, and Kashmere seeping through his styles.

Summarizing “Apex Zero comes off like Britain’s answer to Killah Priest to show that real, hardcore hip-hop with a political mindset still exists in 2013” you can read the entire review HERE

RPL-UndergroundHH

Meanwhile, UndergroundHH, a website dedicated to UK hip hop and championing both new and more established independent artists on the scene featured the album, again drawing comparisons to British & international artists such as Immortal Technique, Wu Tang, Dead Prez, Skinnyman and Klashnekoff, and comments “Apex delivers stone cold pen game fighting back at the system, the roots of population control and the endless routine of a 9 to 5.” and then featuring his videos for Power Source, Chaotic Revolt and Our Times.

Gearing up for his official launch party with a live band upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL on Saturday 7th December, he will also be joined on the night by Caxton Press, Iron Braydz, DJ A.Gee (Itch FM) and host Peaches.
