LEE FIELDS:  Will I Get Off Easy (Vinyl 7Soul survivor Lee Fields celebrated fifty years in the business this year and, with absolutely no signs of slowing down whatsoever, drops the video to Will I Get Off Easy, the flip to the title track, from forthcoming long-player, It Rains Love.

FREEDUST feat. SARINA LEAH: ‘Jump Up And Down’ video

FREEDUST feat. SARINA LEAH:  Jump Up And Down videoIf you were paying attention last year, you may well have caught Freedust’s Jump Up And Down EP from last year an uncharacteristically upbeat-sounding affair in these dark times with shades of both Skeewiff and St Etienne about it.

Deal with yourself eh, Alexis? And the nature of said deal? Oh, it’s to do with the missus – it’s over! Right? But how to represent such a matter in audio-visual format? Maybe you stick your earphones in when she starts

A downtempo drum break maybe, some reflective instrumentation and that voice of course. Oohh – I know – and a video

WHIRLWIND D feat. DJAR ONE & SPECIFIK: ‘Labels’ video

Labels, the first track to emerge from Whirlwind D’s new EP bodes well for the full release as it finds him taking a nostalgic spin through all his old twelve inches and holding forth for anyone who’ll listen about his love for hip-hop and how he got sucked into it. Naturally, if you’re going to do that sort of thing, you’ll need a good beat. Step forward Djar One who provides a mighty funk-

MAVI MARX, DJ SQUIGZ: ‘My Resignation’ video

MAVI MARX, DJ SQUIGZ:  'My Resignation'There’s a certain irony in the first release of a new label being called My Resignation but on the evidence at hand, it seems unlikely that Michigan-based rapper Mavi Marx and UK (by way of Thailand) producer DJ Squigz will be collecting their P45 anytime soon. Squigz provides a reliably 90s feel for the beat while Marx growls his way through three plus minutes of him-standing-firm-
