Something a bit different with this guest mix from Architect, which sees grime combined with hip hop for reasons you can find out below. The mix also contains some of Architect’s own tracks, as well as some monsters from the likes of Finn, Iron Soul, Jme, Big Zuu, and a lot more. Continue reading
I’m don’t usually do write ups on people’s various projects as there are too many of them, they often end up flopping or never getting a release, and also because I’m lazy, but tomorrow sees Gundam drop GUNDAM001, a collection of unreleased tracks alongside some that you may have previously missed, and if you’re a Gundam junkie, it’s in your interest to fully support this release. Here’s why… Continue reading
Wellingorough based MC Rampage drops his first EP, “The Starting Line”, on Friday, and if you wanted a rough idea of what’s in store there, the main word is: grease. Whether Rampage lives that life, I neither know nor care, but the first thing that grabs me on playing this EP is how authentic he sounds, which automatically elevates this release above the majority of MCs that run a similar line in lyrics. Below is a closer look at “The Starting Line”, and why I believe Rampage is yet another MC that’s well worth watching. Continue reading
Triple S first came to my attention with their brutal “Hungry” EP last year, and with their follow up EP, “Triple Dat”, already complete, this seemed like the perfect time to get Chemist RNS and MoJoe to jump on the turntables to give everyone a quick reminder of their sound. The results? 44 mins of madness, featuring dubs, VIPs, and some exclusive tracks from “Triple Dat”. Continue reading
One of the best things about blogging is randomly checking your emails and finding something sick from somebody that you hadn’t previously heard of, and that’s exactly how I got this mix from Hustleblood. The tracklist for this mix is below. Hustleblood, I think, comes from Mexico, and that’s all I can really tell you…well, that and that this mix goes in differently. Continue reading
Toka first grabbed my attention with his remix of Gundam‘s “Thinking Bout U” last year, and his recent “Ishval” EP further marked him out as one to watch, so when I got the chance to grab a guest mix from the man himself, I was more than a little interested to see how that would sound. And it sounds sick, as you can hear for yourself below. Continue reading
Next Sunday (July 19th) eight DJs will be clashing live on Radar Radio until only one, the winner, is left!
Who will win? Who will clang? I can’t answer that, but I can tell you, below, who is involved, what the rules are for each round, and how you can get involved in deciding who wins! Continue reading
Calling this a “leak” would be clickbait, but it is a leak of sorts, albeit one with JEB1’s permission. What we have here is a zip file consisting of 19 tracks that were sent exclusively to DJs and labels at the beginning of June. Unfortunately for JEB1, PC issues mean none of these tracks will end up seeing an official release, but it does mean that I get to give you the tracks instead!
You can download the full zip below, where you can also stream and check out a few of my personal highlights too. Continue reading
2015, depending on who you talk to, means different things for Grime. For some, it’s the year that the vocal side of the scene was kicked out of its slumber by hungry young MCs like MicTy and Jammz. Other people will tell you it’s the year that “America discovered Grime”, but, when the time comes to look back, 2015 could be the year of the “super producer crew” (we’ll work out a better name later). Beatgatherers, Silk Road Assassins, Krud Fam… the list of people to watch for is longer every week, but for now, one crew leads the way – Edgem.
With a new EP, “Terror Fortress” out at midnight (13/7/2015), I spoke to Boylan about Edgem, hooking up with JT and Dullah, Drum & Bass, and more. Continue reading
