Orezi, the man who wanted rihanna to have his banana, is back with his new song You Garrit. Filmed in Joburg the video is really good, on the fence about the song. There is no denying that he has the talent this track left us feeling wanting more.
Produced by Jayso this tribute to Super Mario is good. Much better than the Chelsea song, although i don’t know if I’m blinded by the fact that someone made a song about chelsea. The Trappy, Hip Hop beat is good and the first verse really gets into Mario’s story. To be fair it’s great to see people making songs about Mario, Drake professes his domination but can’t be bothered to actually mention him in rhyme. Not that it really matters but we will look back at Mario’s career with intrigue in 20 years time. Money, petulance, racism and self identity are just are small part of his story.
Afrobeats/dancehall version of Ace Hood’s Bugatti. That about covers it.
Look when someone films an afrobeats video in Dublin, that pretty much guarantees a post on this blog. Rumba Style is also a good song but come on this guy is dancing in the streets of Dublin. We’ve stumbled round it after nights out but thats about it. The video is really well done as well.

Samrai from Manchester crew Swing Ting has a new release on Robin from Wifey’s Label Niche N Bump out on March 24. It’s one of those releases that comes out and makes you smile when you listen to each cut crease to crease. On this EP Samrai really went for a place that no one else is really going for that 115BPM Bermuda triangle that a lot of people swerve because they can’t get the mood right. Not only on the actual vocal cut but on the riddims does he do this range justice. After attending Swing Ting (you should go, easily one of the best parties in the UK) you can understand how this came about. Fox is one of the best hosts in the game, vibing with the music rather than trying to power himself over it. Fox’s story is easily one of the best I’ve ever heard but i’ll save that for another time. Responsibility riddim is the one that everyone will gravitate towards but don’t sleep on the others, Problematic is a fun almost militaristic groove while Concrete reminds me of those early Toddla and Poirier beats. The whole EP is a must cop especially if you are a similar DJ in our small but expanding scene.
