GIST: The Payback (2017) Video

GIST:  The PaybackGist might still be working on the full-length follow-up to their debut self-titled 2015 LP but they don’t want you to forget about them. They certainly don’t want someone to forget about them anyway what with this talkbox-vocals-featuring cover of the late, great Mr Brown’s seven-minute revenge epic The Payback. The video opens with the dialogue sample, “We don’t like dictators. We don’t

THE HEMPOLICS: High & Gritty (2017) + video

THE HEMPOLICS: High & Gritty (2017) + videoThe Hempolics return with a new single showcasing their particular brand of soul and hip-hop infused dub-reggae in the form of High & Gritty. Said song apparently relates the love affair between band leader Grippa and a Mexican senorita and is remixed by no fewer than four bashment bandits – Fleck, Dubmatix, the ever-reliable DJ Maars and the splendidly-named

DJ FORMAT & ABDOMINAL: Dirt (2017) + video

DJ FORMAT & ABDOMINAL: Dirt videoToday is Friday and it’s good. Not in a religious sense you understand but because DJ Format and Abdominal have just dropped another new single off forthcoming LP Still Hungry entitled Dirt. Life is too sanitised these days you see – or as Abs has it, “so fuck a bar of soap man I wanna feel the earth/ between my toes like nature intended/ because things are too clean and impeccably

BOCAWOODY: Carousel (2017) Ltd. vinyl LP & 7″ bundle + Jump video

Ah Carousel! Once your thirtieth birthday comes around, that clear crystal in your palm turns red, you put on those white robes and hockey mask and get whirled up to the big meat grinder in the ceiling. Oh wait – no – sorry that’s Carrousel with two ‘r’s on Logan’s Run. This Carousel is the new twelve-track album from Bocawoody a.k.a Boca 45 and DJ Woody with quite a bit of help from

CUT LA VIS feat. TIPPA IRIE: Love My Music (2017) + CUT LA VIS feat. MYSDIGGI ‘Hit Me One Time’ Live video

Looks like there’s still time for another single culled from the excellent December ’15 LP One Step Forward from Brighton reggae-hip-hop bandit Cut La Vis, for here one is. This time around it’s the rude uptempo Tippa Irie-featuring skank of Love My Music which also comes in Sekkle Sound old school UK garage and Numa Crew dubstep flavas. No video then? Never mind –

YOUR OLD DROOG feat. WIKI & EDAN: Help (2017) Video

Rating: ★★★★★ Ukrainian-American emcee Your Old Droog might not be Nas (all interweb rumours from a while back to the contrary), but the man’s got mic skills. So it’s not like he needs help from Edan and Wiki on – er – Help but damn if this almost-posse cut slice of dirty NYC boom-bap (also produced by Edan) isn’t the better for it! And when Edan’s verse arrives after some monster

THE WOMACK SISTERS: Darling (2017) Video

Darling The Womack SistersHello it’s The Supremes. I mean the Lovelites – no – The Vandellas – ooh, no – its The Womack Sisters. Now there’s a name with a soul lineage. And they are actually the daughters of Cecil and Linda Cooke Womack which means…they’re also the granddaughters of soul legend Sam Cooke. Of course they won’t be channelling a Motown soul vibe – it being 2017 and all, don’t be ridiculous –

DJ FORMAT & ABDOMINAL: ‘Behind The Scenes’ video (2017)

Behind The Scenes DJ Format AbdominalRating: ★★★★★ Poor old Abdominal – trying to make a living out of being a full-time emcee. How quaint. Still, it does provide ample material for a wry look at how that actually works in 2017 on new Abs and Format cut Behind The Scenes. And how it works is that crate-digger and veteran creator of phat shit, DJ Format, puts together a

SADAT X: The Bass Player (2016) + video

the-bass-player-sadat-xStill spawning singles at this late stage in the year is Sadat X‘s summer LP Agua though I don’t think anyone will be complaining about the Brand Nubian’s latest, The Bass Player, one of the few LP cuts that features X on a solo tip. It’s charm comes from a beat replete with clattery drums and bassy funk courtesy of Bushwick bad boys Da Beatminerz and X’s distinctively raucous drawl as he spits
