VICE BEATS feat. AUDESSY, GREG BLACKMAN & KNUF: That LoveSuper early heads-up time here with news of a real treat from Bristol producer Vice Beats in the form of forthcoming 7″, That Love. Seems this 45 has been pressed up to celebrate the track’s two year anniversary in which time its notched up – ooh – a million plus plays. Lifted from the only official J Dilla tribute LP to have originated in the UK – i.e. VB’s Dilla: The Timeless Tribute, That

MR BIRD & GREG BLACKMAN: Save Me (2015) + video

Save Me Mr Bird Greg BlackmanMr Bird and Greg Blackman shouldn’t need any introduction and are in absolutely no need of a rescue here either as they release the gospel-tinged, soul-jazz highlight of their Lo-Fi Classics LP, Save Me. Bird provides an irresistibly shuffling beat and double bass-driven groove while Blackman employs his full and not inconsiderable

GREG BLACKMAN: I Can Tell (2015)

I Can Tell Greg BlackmanRating: ★★★★★ Well I woke up this morning…and raspy-voiced blue-eyed soul-man Greg Blackman was in my inbox. Not literally of course, it was this track which goes all the way back to basics with GB’s latest showcase for that voice, I Can Tell. It all starts off relatively innocently with a clav, some synth claps and minor lyrical suspicions about another half but before you know it things have

GREG BLACKMAN: Land Of The Dead (2015)

Land Of The Dead Greg BlackmanLooks like Greg Blackman‘s just been doorstepped by UKIP then. Or the Tories. Or Labour. Or the Libdems. It’s reminded him to dig out soul-dub number Land Of The Dead all about the man wanting his vote/ money that he wrote and recorded two years ago. I was doorstepped by Labour tonight. They wanted to know if I’d decided who to vote for. It wasn’t them. I listed a few

THE DELEGATES OF RHYME feat. GREG BLACKMAN: Look At What They Do (2015)

Look At What They Do Delegates Rhyme Greg BlackmanRating: ★★★★★ Ahh The Delegates Of Rhyme – look at what they do! Donnie Numeric having sorted out some bars and Vice having made an epic beat complete with a staccato hook and gorgeous strings, they wisely assign soul crooning duties to the man with the midas touch, Mr Greg Blackman and the rest should be history for this

STICKYBUDS feat. GREG BLACKMAN: Easy (2014)

Easy Stickybuds Greg BlackmanDon’t worry, it’s not a Lionel Richie cover. The new collab between British Columbian producer Stickybuds and Essex soul boy Greg Blackman merely shares the same name. On Richie’s cheesy soul ballad, if you remember, he was all ‘easy like sunday morning’ about giving his clingy missus the kiss-off. This ghetto funk stomper on the other hand, sees Greg revealing how he finds it ‘easy to get funky all night,’ adding, moreover, that it’s ‘easy to

MR BIRD & GREG BLACKMAN: Lo-Fi Classics (2014)

Lo Fi Classics Mr Bird Greg BlackmanThe imminent arrival of the Lo-Fi Classics album from UK ex-pat funky breaks producer Mr Bird and Greg Blackman (the blue-eyed soul voice of choice for the party breaks and ghetto funk massive!) continues the resurgence of quality British soul that has recently spawned recent LPs by Omar and Smoove & Turrell. While the sound of this drop is nominally closer to the latter of these

FEATURECAST: Run For Cover (2012)

Rating: ★★★★★
Featurecast finally delivers a full-length album – Run For Cover and it’s a bit of a game changer for the genre known as ‘ghetto funk.’ Now, you might have reservations about a term which has been appropriated by a scene producing a frequently bass wobble-obsessed, latterday descendant of nineties big beat which also has the hots for funk, disco and

FEATURECAST: Around The Block EP (2012) + ‘Going, Going Gone’ free download

Featurecast’s latest is the Around The Block EP. Around the block? Oh what – like some sort of breaks ‘bike’? Spreading his beats as widely as he can? Offering it up any way he likes whether you want it or not? Do you want some? Well do you? Don’t make the mistake of thinking Featurecast is some sort of ghetto funk slag though – he doesn’t give it out for free – at least not this time
