PUPPETMASTAZ:  'Urubu' videoFrench producer and turntablist and 2013 Rock Da Club champion Dudy invites German hip-hop veterans Puppetmastaz onboard for the electro-hip-hop beats (with dnb interlude) on Urubu.

Probably need something with a bit of

SON OF SAM feat. LIFFORD & BLAISE B:  Fighting Talk EP + videoRating: ★★★★★ Last year’s debut album from Son Of Sam, Cinder Hill, ended up being MB’s album of the year and deservedly so pairing, as it did, dope all-original (and mostly live-played) beats with an array of legendary emcees. One of the absolute highlights of this LP of highlights though was self-affirmation anthem, Fighting Talk, featuring bars from Blaise B and underpinned by a dubby-

PAN AMSTERDAM: Plus One video

PAN AMSTERDAM:  Plus One videoRating: ★★★★★ Who exactly is Pan Amsterdam? The smooth samples, the laidback lyrical delivery – half stream-of-consciousness/ half tongue-in-cheek lyrics – and the hijacking of an old Alexander O’Neal video for new single Plus One reveal a wry sense of humour possessed by the likes of both Messrs Daniel Dumile and Kool Keith Thornton.
