ANDY COOPER: Bring It To Me/ Do The Charlie Brown (2015) Ltd. 7″

Bring It To Me Charlie Brown Andy CooperUgly Duckling’s Andy Cooper is musically on trend as he brings you a limited 45 of two cuts off his recent Free EP. On the A-side it’s Bring It To Me which finds him moving at breakneck speed on a JB-assisted 125 bpm battle rap and channeling the pent-up lyrics of fury denied an outlet by a career in nice-guy outfit UD. Even when he’s being nasty though…he still sounds nice. There’s no

MR JASON: Mr Jason Has A Posse (DJ FORMAT remix) 7 inch (2015)

Incredible Danny Spice Dizzy DustinRating: ★★★★★ Danny Spice returns from a two year lunch-break following his Craig G-featuring King Amongst Thieves EP during which he appears to have kept himself occupied plundering the funk canon for more fat samples and arranged a hook-up with Ugly Duckling’s Dizzy Dustin. The result is Incredible – an exemplary slab of fat boom-bap on which the UD rapper delivers cartoon brag raps

KISTA: Pushin Buttons EP (2013)

UK producer Kista comes correct and goes stateside for his rappers with his forthcoming EP the Pushin Buttons EP. The twelve tracker (six vocal cuts plus instro versions) features the talents of Maspyke’s Tableek on two tracks while The Vinyl Junkies’ Sumkid turns up on another pair – one of which also features Rob McKay. Expect the sort of heavyweight dusty soul, jazz, disco and funk
