The Triple Darkness member drops the first in his trilogy of 2014-scheduled projects in the form of the brilliantly-executed “Effortless” EP.
Produced entirely by the talented Greater Good, this release finds the London lyricist’s intricate and often-personal rhymes meshing seamlessly with smoky, lo-fi beats plus appearances from fellow UK mic fiends such as Tesla’s Ghost, Stinkin Slumrok and K. Zorro.
The debut collaborative release from Dragon Fli Empire’s DJ Cosm and fellow crate-digger AJV finds the Canada-based pair formulating eclectic soundscapes which blend together futuristic soul, retro electro funk and thick bass with the likes of Ghettosocks, Self The Bluest Eye and Azrael on-hand to assist on mic duties.
Virginia-based producer Logic Marselis has been busy in the lab putting together some lo-fi mood music for his latest project “AIRGLOW” which ranges from sweet chopped soul to eerie drum-heavy boom-bap – get ready to turn the lights down and zone out.
Proving that there’s still so much more to Hip-Hop than the one-dimensional artists peddled via the mainstream, Canada’s Es drops an accomplished project in the form of “Aspire To Inspire” which balances positive, thoughtful lyricism with quality beats from the likes of NRJ, I.Khan and Concept.
As Es says himself:
“Aspire To Inspire” is my life’s motto. It is also a symbol of my journey… my growth…my progression. This record is a feel good inspirational and motivational collection of songs, intended to uplift anyone who has ever had to overcome adversity or odds stacked against them. It is an honest audio journal of my goals, dreams, successes, joys, failures and words of encouragement to all who can relate to my story…coming from a grown man’s perspective. The ability to inspire others to strive to be better is one life’s ultimate rewards. Let’s “Aspire To Inspire”. Peace.”
Forthright East London emcee Cyclonious joins forces with talented UK producer Chairman Maf for this “Hostile Leadership” project which mixes thought-provoking rhymes and poignant track concepts with unique, soulful beats.
The London-based lyricist drops a nine-track sampler for his forthcoming concept-based album “The Re-Education Of King 9” featuring plenty of powerful, uplifting Hip-Hop reggae vibes – the project is released July 19th.
