HDD Fam Murlo and Famous Eno recently joined forces and released their Aerial collabortation on Mixpak which has been getting love from Brackles, Scratcha DVA and Visionist and has Spooky on the offical remix. While the pair are on a grime tip they are taking over the 12am – 1am spot on NTS tonight with Serocee and Trigganom on mic duties. We were lucky enough to get a sneaky listen to some riddims that Famous Eno, Serocee and Trigganom have been working on and they are pure fiyah! So be sure to tune in online to NTS for their takeover.
PS. Check out the amazing video which Murlo created for Aerial V.I.P. below
It’s been a while since we have posted a Sneakbo tune. He’s been navigating the pop charts with songs that haven’t really interested us. This new one by him caught out attention since it’s produced by dancehall producer Rvssian. The man the brought us Straight Jeans and Fitted has teamed up with Sneakbo who made his name adding verses to bashment classics. I guess this is an example of cutting out the middle man. This song adds to the current paranoia trend that we are seeing in hip hop and to a certain extent popular culture.
This song has been a long process and we are glad to see it finally come out. Serocee is one of our favourites full stop. A great MC not only in the studio but live (rare in this day an age), a great DJ (who could easily just rely on his dancehall heritage but instead has a thirst for tunes unparalleled by many) and an all round good guy (Check out his Mek Money Monday mixes for a great combo of all three).Famous Eno is that guy. He is the Robbie Keane of the game: vastly under rated, versatile and is incredible. The two of them combine to take Atumpan’s afro pop hit and turned it into bashment influenced banger.
It’s always great to see a producer take a classic and make it his own (especially when done right). Spooky did that with the OG, now we get to see 4 new producers take on his remix and make something different. Samename (those carnival whistles), Murlo, Sir Pixalot and Trends all provide remixes for the 6th release on Oil Gang records. Expect this one to come out in August, on vinyl only. Above is our favourite cut on the original riddim
Now this is something that we didn’t expect, taken from Skepta’s last mixtape Black listed (although has been retooled for his upcoming LP Konnichiwa). This is a mix of Sexual Seduction, Disclosure and Duke Dumont, it’s wicked. Kano’s verse is great, Skepta seems like his is having fun, it’s just good to see. We have been on a Skepta kick recently, partly due to his Nigerian roots, partly because the UK is sometimes missing a voice and his is fitting perfectly right now.
Speaking of Grime guys looking happy here is Dizzee talking about how he is comfortable in his own skin finally.
