NEW MIX: BUMPCAST #11 – DJ JAFFA & MAYOR

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

DJ Jaffa & Mayor are back with maybe the finest slab of pure un-cut hip-hop we’ve brought you to date.

Right now in hip-hop there is some magic in the air. Or maybe it’s the chem trails!?! If it’s not that they musta put something in the water supply, coz you can taste it. People are wiggin’ out the right way. That passion for rhyming like a style don is back in people’s plans. Nestled on top of some of these new schools of production. It’s a perfect marriage. Hip-hop is in rude rude health. Filthy in fact. So we sprinkled those main servings with a few classics and surf’s up! Come ride that wave of goodness with us. Grab some headphones and a surfboard and you’re good to go.

And if you like what you hear on here, help spread the word. Go preach the gospel. Shout it from the rooftops. Bump it to your peoples. Indoctrinate the uninformed. Force feed your circle. There is some incredible hip-hop out right now. Everyone needs it in their life.

NEW EP COMING FROM RALPH RIP SH!T & LEMONFACE

Saturday, September 1st, 2012
Ralph & Lemonface (Front)

After the success of their first two joint singles ‘Basketcase’ & ‘Spanish Ass’, released as part of Ralph’s ‘Dutch Masters’ series, Ralph & Lemonface are finally ready to drop their joint EP ‘Post Crisis: Life After 30′.

As so much modern hip-hop lacks a coherent sound, often feeling more like a compilation project, the EP was made under the strict regime of purely the pair’s creativity and only one single guest. Ralph’s lady contributes backing vocals to the EP’s most introspective and personally honest track, ‘Over’.

With artwork provided by Dutch counterparts ‘Creative Luxury’ and co-released in collaboration with Lemonface’s label home ‘Super Nice Music’ the project will be released on SEPTEMBER 14th. So stay tuned.

HOOKERS ON THE LOOSE…

Monday, August 13th, 2012

The brandnew single from Metabeats featuring the already legendary and always classic sounding, Action Bronson, is finally here and spreading like wild fire after The Fader got the exclusive last week. Hookers is hip-hop delivered with vintage dependability but with a touch of modern soul and finish. It’s that new New York solid neck snap, rejigged.

“Metabeats has done it again. A ridiculously talented producer working with one of most exciting emcees about and more than holding his own. A killer of a track.”
Jen Long – BBC Radio 1

With cover design by FWMJ the track is available worldwide on iTunes and all your other favourite digital hot spots.

Joe Jackson Cover

Beatbox Fozzy is steadily working on a collaboration project involving samples of his vocal mouth magic taken and reproduced by a select list of producers. Following on from his work alongside Metabeats on the title track from The Highball EP, this is ‘Joe Jackson’.

Working with Birmingham native, the talented Dockmini, the track has that smoothed out hypnotic groove but then the rhyming beast that is Sonnyjim takes it by the neck and goes at it with a rapid fire bombardment flow.
