COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS: Lab Experiments Vol. 1: Mixin’ (2017) + ‘Enter Sandman’ video

COOKIN' ON 3 BURNERS: Lab Experiments Vol. 1:  Mixin' (2017) + 'Enter Sandman' videoRating: ★★★★★ What better season than summer for Oz-funk grandaddies Cookin’ On 3 Burners to release their latest Hammond-funk foray Lab Experiments Vol. 1: Mixin’? Er – well – spring, actually, since this was supposed to have an EU drop date of May this year and has been out in Oz since then – though technically for them that would have been autumn. Confused? Never mind, the

PERCEPTIONISTS (MR LIF & AKROBATIK) feat. SYNE: Hose Down (2017) Video + Grab Hold free download

PERCEPTIONISTS (MR LIF & AKROBATIK) feat. SYNE:  Hose DownMr Lif and Akrobatik return shortly as Perceptionists (after a minor twelve year hiatus) with a full-length LP, Resolution. Before that though is, the menacing bounce of single Hose Down. Like many of their beats from back in the day, this one forgoes boom-bap for a more progressive approach. Indeed, it seems to have taken its gritty cue from UK Grime with ominous

BEATTRIX & NATIVE STYLES: ‘Mad Wild’ video (2017)

A fat but complex double-bassline heralds the intro to Beattrix & Native Styles’ contribution to Vol. 4 of B-Line Recordings’ The B-Line EP Vol. 4 and then the drums kick in for emcees Reachwun and Strange Man Called Seb to lace with bars. Since two of the four skills are thus represented, perhaps a video representing the two remaining skills to provide the correct ambience? A nearly four-

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

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
