Alicia Keys – Songs in A Minor

June 16th, 2011

Nice little video to promote the 10th anniversary of the release of this epic/classic record…cannot believe it is 10 years since this dropped, madness I now officially feel old!

Maiday

June 9th, 2011

New material from Maiday dropped today, seems the guys are Levels are hitting the summer hard with UK music! This is the first track to drop from her first EP which I believe will be a covers EP. I have been backing her for a couple of years now (when she was working under the name Willoe). She is now signed to Atlantic so I am now eagerly awaiting her debut album/new material!

p.s. She also wrote parts (I presume hook/chorus) of the previous post’s track from Wretch 32….she is seriously sick!

Wretch 32 – Don’t Go (Feat. Josh Kumra)

June 9th, 2011

This is so damn crazy, the beat is so stupidly simple yet still it bumps nicely! This will hopefully be massive come the summer it hasn’t got the commercial appeal that Unorthodox has but fingers crossed it can still make some decent moves when it drops 14th August! Can’t wait for Wretch 32’s album (easily my favourite UK artist right now)!

Frank Ocean – Ready

June 3rd, 2011

I downloaded “Lonny Breaux”, the leaked 64 demos from Frank Ocean and haven’t stopped listening to this track ever since…I’m not sure why I just love it!!

Photography

May 30th, 2011

I love photography… granted I am not brilliant but it doesn’t take a genius to take a half decent photo in my opinion. Today I have been uploading some of my better photos I have taken over the past year or so. Here is a slideshow of my Lake District photos where I spend alot of time, for me it is the best place to go and switch off from the world. Also checkout my Flickr page for more photos!

Bluey Robinson – Showgirl

May 23rd, 2011

Been supporting Bluey for well over a year now so it’s only fair that now his first video has dropped that I should share it!

Currently listening to….

May 23rd, 2011

This dropped from Drake last week and I’ve not been able to put this down! Looking forward to the new album “Take Care” after hearing this!

Also this dropped today “Acura-Integurl” video, a track from Nostalgia/Ultra which didn’t make the cut for the mixtape but it does appear that it will be on the digital release which is due in July! I’ve still not put this mixtape down since downloading it, not had a mixtape on my Ipod for this long for a very long time!

Drake – Unthinkable

May 21st, 2011

I love this verse…probably one of his best in my eyes! Bit of a random post but hey…

“Ugh, Tez keeps telling me he just turned 30
having dreams of being single forever he’s getting worried
and I’m scared too because I’m in the same boat
good women are rare too, none of them have come close
me I have’nt changed much, you know how I play
better safe than sorry
instead of searching for substance at every single party
baby being part of this life
I feel like I’m bound to end up with somebody
that’s been with everybody
I need you to rescue me from my destiny
I’m trying to live right and give you whatever’s left of me
cause you know life is what we make it and a
chance is like a picture, it’d be nice if you just take it.
Or let me take it for ya
I’m just down to ride
or we can roll around the city until we finally decide
I got more than a thing for you, tattoo and ink for you
right over my heart girl I do the unthinkable”

Elzhi’s – Elmatic

May 14th, 2011

I honestly didn’t know much bout this guy but over the past few days alot of people of been talking about this mixtape over at Twitter, mainly Coxhead. So I made it my duty to download it and see what is was saying!

Defiantly no regrets downloading this, a really strong mixtape with some really strong material. Highlights so far are It Ain’t Hard To Tell, Life’s a Bitch and Memory Lane, pure hip hop vibes!

You can download it over at XXL magazine!
