TimingIsEverything-Sampleface

British online publication Sampleface are the latest to run the rule over the debut album by Detroit MC Kid Vishis “Timing is Everything” which released this week on Seven 13 Entertainment.

Opening with “There’s something to be said for a rapper who can generate a buzz as loud as a hornet’s nest without blessing the world with a full album. Kid Vishis is one such emcee and we reviewed his debut album, Timing Is Everything.” they reflect on the versatility of the mic skills, lyricism and fierce flows complimented by the production provided by Mr Porter, Nemisis, Chase Moore & Nick Zervos.

In the comment “Vishis is one of the few Golden Era lovers not trapped in recreating the sound of the forefathers, but instead taking the principles and bringing them up to date” they represent a great deal of the artist’s ethos and mindset in what is a well written piece.

Available now internationally on iTunes and Amazon physical CD copies can also be bought directly by mail order from the label at www.seven13ent.com

Currently in the middle of further promotional activity with the media, Kid Vishis is also at the early stages of putting together tours of Canada, the UK and Europe as well as beginning work on his sophomore album.

VerbalSwardz-Sampleface

The new EP “Verbal sWARdz” by north London Emcee & producer Iron Braydz releases a week today, Monday 14th April.

The first in a series of releases for the Triple Darkness & FuFu Gang member this year, it’s a very strong marker for what lies ahead for the rapper who also has an acting role in a new film “Night Bus” shot by award winning director Simon Baker due out later in 2014.

There has been extensive international media interest in the release, the latest of which comes via a review by British online publication Sampleface

Contributor Taytula Burke opens the article “His past two offerings Devil May Cry and Holla @ Braydz saw the NW10 rapper prove that being a student of the game can pay off — particularly when wordplay and lyricism become synonymous with your name. So is it reasonable to expect that tracks that even he previously slept on would be worth the time of day? Abso-frickin’-lutely.

Read the whole review HERE

The EP is largely self produced and includes features by Prince Po, Sean Price, Phat Kat, Kyza, Skriblah and several of his fellow Triple Darkness members. He will be launching the official audio stream of the entire EP tomorrow, Tuesday 8th April, at midday (GMT) premiered by Shout 4 Music as part of their feature on him, so look out for that at www.shout4music.com

The EP releases to the public on 14th April, and to celebrate he will also be launching a new video for Rambo on that day, shot in London last week by Global Faction.

Keep up to date with him on twitter @Braydz and connect with the magazine @Sampleface & Taytula @Taykeova

The review summarizes “Righteous Fury is a valiant effort if the aim was to get rap in a chokehold and drag it back to its heyday. Well worth a listen.” and can be read HERE

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
