There’s no doubt that both DJ Zinc and A-Trak know how to make a club banger, and the re-work of their collaboration track Stingray is no exception. The Re-work Like The Dancefloor features dancehall artist Natalie Storm on the vocals. It’s been a minute since we have heard Natalie on a funky bashment track, and we are happy she is back on the scene. The video features the crew rolling around Notting Hill Carnival and boy does it make us nostalgic. We are predicting big things for this one – could it be the next Wile Out?!

One of our fave duos is back with a new single on FOOOLLLSSS GOOOLD (nee Fools Gold). Maggie sounds great on this breezy summer jam. From a UK perspective this is a little late in the game for us to really be jamming this in the park with lukewarm red stripes but none the less this is great. Also Maggie or Sammy if you read this Popcaan Only Man She Want or Naughty Girl cover please?
Ps check out the homie’s JR Blender remix
After the release of Bluberry this week we thought it would be a good time to do a Danny Brown Top 5. We have an immense love for the Detroit Mc ever since we read this amazing 2 part interview with music journalist Noz. In it he mentions that he was almost signed to G Unit, his dad was a house dj and that one of his favourite Mc’s is Dizzee Rascal. All that and his infectious unique voice meant that he was someone that we would love to listen to. Then we heard the tunes, his vivid imagery and unique sense of humour make him and amazing Mc. Whatever they end up calling this latest generation of hip hop they need to document Danny’s great contribution to it.
Danny Brown – Guitar Solo
There is something to be said about having great visuals in this decade and Danny Brown has plenty. The video for this story telling song is great, please look out for the guitar playing guy in the hospital. The song itself garnered props from Q-Tip online as well. This is the go to song that I play people when I tell them to listen to Danny Brown.
We have been fans of Danny Brown since The Hybrid since then he has signed to one of the best labels around Fools Gold. In doing so they gave him the space to be him and in turn he made one of the best albums of last year XXX. In keeping with the fact that he has the space to do what he wants, Fools Gold release the video for his anti radio song called Radio Song. Danny highlights the pressure that artists feel to make a carbon copy hit single. Even though he’s joking i totally would love to see him do a song called Black and Emo.
Any rapper, especially US rapper, that cites Dizzee Rascal as an influence is worth a listen. Then came the great storytelling fable Guitar Solo (make sure you check out the video, with a fitted hat guitarist in the background of various places including a hospital). Here he is spitting a freestyle on Tony Toca’s show.
