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

MARTA REN & THE GROOVELVETS: So Long (2016) + video

so-long-marta-ren-groovelvetsNext up in the way of a single from Marta Ren & The Groovelvets is the noirish pomp of torch song So Long and judging by all the swearing it seems that soul hurricane Marta’s a bit upset. What could the matter possibly be? Well, a number of things it seems, though when she finally gets around to mentioning a former lover who left her, you suspect he’s probably the root cause. But how

HANNAH WILLIAMS & THE AFFIRMATIONS: Dazed & Confused (2016)

dazed-confused-hannah-williams-affirmationsRating: ★★★★★ Travellers down the Led Zeppelin covers highway, are strongly advised to look out for dodgy reggae tracks with even more dodgy names (D’Yer Maker) and any lyrical references to The Lord of the Rings strewn in their path. Given the frequency of the latter, that does make for a dangerous journey. It’s enough to make you arrive at your destination dazed and confused in fact

the-devil-made-me-do-it-strut-your-stuff-mako-the-hawk-chima-anyaSo there’s been all that Mako & Mr Bristow action in the last year or two but what has been up with Mako & The Hawk, you might have wondered. Well, wonder no longer – the pair who sound a bit like a 1970s cop show are back with a double A-side wax 45 of all-original, sample-based, party-friendly

SHY FX feat. KIKO BUN: Honey (2016) + video

Honey Shy FX Kiko BunRating: ★★★★★ It’s been at least five years since rumours first surfaced that original junglist, Shy FX, was dropping a reggae LP full of 70s-style reggae and…it still isn’t out. Three years ago, our man did drop excellent the Liam Bailey-featuring Soon Come – presumably ironically given the island time that he appears to be working on, and now – just to fluff you a bit until the next tidbit (or,
