BOCA 45 feat. EMSKEE & DJ WOODY:  45s EPRating: ★★★★★ Who better to drop a 45 featuring a lyrical tribute to 45s than Boca 45 of 45Live fame? That’s a lot of 45, I think you’ll agree, and when you hear what our man has come up with on his brand new 45s EP in the company of Brooklyn emcee Emskee and DJ Woody, you’ll probably decide that even the amount of 45 you’d previously imagined you’d be getting was an

EMSKEE & DOC TMK feat DJ SUSPECT: ‘Sound Of The SP/ Deep Down’ 7″ (2015)

Sound Of The SP Emskee Doc TMK DJ SuspectPrime lyrical content abounds on this debut 45 for Radio Krimi Records, the A-side of which is also a love letter to a piece of technology that was instrumental (see what I did there) in the rise of hip-hop as a genre back in the day. Good People member Emskee (in emcee mode) holds forth over a heavyweight jazz-tinged slab of classic boom-bap from producer Doc TMK while turntable

MR BENN: Shake A Leg (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ Big up the Bristol Massive! Mr Benn finally comes through with Shake A Leg – an album that’s been ‘soon come’ for so long that it was starting to make even the most generous concept of ‘island time’ look like a mockery.

Probably a bit much for one lungful but the jazz sample stylings of A Side The Process are the sort of thing to play while you’re inhaling. I prefer
