If you’ve paid any attention to this blog then you’ll have noticed that I’m a pervert for Beatgatherers tracks, and this one, “H0ld Me” by Mang, is no exception. More introspective than the stuff on his recent “7th Prefecture EP“, you can download H0ld Me below. 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
I’ve been pulling together some tracks to drop as a free download soon. “Next Tune In” will feature 15 instrumentals that I feel show off the range of different sounds that are out there at the moment. The tracklist is above. Some of the tracks are peel-ya-face-off violent, others are more relaxed. There are producers you’ll know and some that you may not have heard of yet, but all of them have provided something that I hope you’ll enjoy. Continue reading
Let’s not get it twisted, for years Maniac was head and shoulders above most producers in the scene. His name was synonymous with the hardest Grime instrumentals, and the list of classic beats he dropped is almost endless. Maniac’s absence from the scene left many people wondering what would happen to his old productions, and whether he’d ever jump back on making music, but the good news is that he’s back, and he agreed to answer my questions about his older stuff, whether we can expect to hear anything from him soon, who he rates in Grime at the moment, and more.

London based Tobago Tracks team up with America’s Paradise Rhythm for Volume 3 of their self-titled compilation releases, this one due for release on the 23rd December. With Volumes 1 and 2 having a French and Turkish feel respectively, Volume 3 comes with a UK versus USA perspective with Tobago Tracks providing tunes from their favourite UK artists, and Paradise Rhythm supplying the heat from stateside. .
More info on that, and an exclusive free download from SECRT below. Continue reading
