#SoundsOfUtopia: Shakka - End of Time

Friggin' 'ell! @iAmShakka absolutely vibes up the near un-vibesable to the max his rendition of Beyonce's 'End of Time'. No one is touching him now, no one is touching him 2012.

The skank is too real.

#SoundsOfUtopia: "Iron"

The Kendrick Lamar lovers will recognise this from The Spiteful Chant off of Section.80. The WOODKID original is so real, especially with the purely nang visusal - HD, please.

For those not clocking, 'Sounds of Utopia' is basically my 'Song of the moment'.

Play Dirty, Look Clean

BODIED! Our cousins in America may not have known about @KreptPlayDirty & @KonanPlayDirty1 2 days ago but surely they should have a notion about them now.

I've tried to stay away from the Twitter realm but my mate hit me on the text at around 2am (rather upsetting too cus my sleep was choong and this mate was not a female) to go check Krept & Konan's Otis video. He must of slipped and bumped his head to think I wasn't still clued up to new music developments because I'm not on the blue bird right now. As expected, the views were chilling on that magic 303 count as the video plays freeze *cue's music*

I wake up now and check the WWW again, as you do, and see another mate talk about a million views for the video. I won't lie to you, I was sceptical whether this guy finished his maths SATS let alone GCSEs. I saw it on 35,128 views and thought 'Fucking 'ell! That's still a fuck load of views'. Searched it myself now and puiogyfhgxchjkhgvcj

Imagine it's the 2nd video that comes up when you search 'Otis' on the YouTube. Sorry Mr Deley... You've been dropped, again.

I won't even jump on the 'they must get signed now' wave because in all honesty, major labels are idiots... Pardon me... They're SCARED idiots who fail to take risks but just take 'risks'.
What's good about this Otis freestyle which differs from the plethora of versions I've heard in recent weeks is that, even besides knowing their background, you can hear that they are having fun with the lyrics and their chemistry on the track and visual is second to none. Kudos to them.

Watch Konan & Krept (the order in which they come on the track is the same order you write their name for said track) decimate the Otis instrumental, originally made famous by Jay-Z and my big brother Kanye West.

I predict a riot (8)

NOTE: This video from The Guardian was BEFORE THE RIOTS! (31/07/2011)

Premonitions are serious. The young lad in this video with other youth from Wood Green tell us exactly how it's come about. I'm not saying that this is all due to the young not have anything else to do because there isn't any youth clubs around but if there were more alternatives to lurking shopping centers and high streets causing havoc... Ya gemme?!

Listen to the very last words again.

Even the Kaiser Chiefs told us in '04 but no one listened...

S/o Mama Pseudo for bringing this to my eyes.

#RandomRalph: Wretch 32

It's only right to explore the mind of one you're interested in. The witty, multi-talented, musical, highly entertaining media figure which is Ralph Hardy sits down with the multi-syllable rhyming black Shakespeare of the music scene Wretch 32 to chat about his new album, what he puts on toast amongst other things and ends up interviewing himself, kinda. #RandomRalph

The Wendi Murdoch PAX!

Allegedly, Jonnie Marbles was on a nonsense vibe and decided to PAX Rupert in the face with a pie plate but whilst in the kuffufle of things, got the pie in his own face.

F that.

Wendi Murdoch defended her man and got involved with the one bang. Gwarn.

Here is the Wiz Khalifa interview I did for MTV with Mr Poetical.
No credit for it but I can't say I'm surprised... In fact, I am.
I'm annoyed and surprised but I say I'm not surprised cus of recent, it's like there has been a sudden uproar of people not getting credited/ noticed/ appreciated for their work, despite it not meaning to be like that;
how certain things work.

How many canisters do we need?

@AKSonline - 'Mixing red and white wine don't make Rosé'

I couldn't have said it any better.

'The bus stop dude' drops a typography video for his new single “The Monologue”, which I must say... Is a BANGER.

'Real' music has been parred as of recent due to packaging, image etc which you can hear here during my Blogger Delight debut, but AKS speaks some truths you can't help but wheel up.

'The Bus Stop' EP is released on the 21st March.

Listen to his Premeditated Murder freestyle to hear whats good

Oh how I love typography

Every Tomina, Dickela & Harriet says 'it's my year this year', but Ralph is thinking AL may have a good 365 days, fill me? Pause.

In the words of Westwood...

And this is a Kanye West cover

You see the Portland Cello Project yeah...

When music resides in your heart AND in your fingers (pause), there's only one thing to do...

Go learn the chords to Kanye West's "All of the Lights"
and... Chill.

Can I get an Amen?


Wednesday, 26 January 2011

Can you hear that?

'Look What I've Done' by @MaverickSabre is a vibe I can't help but think sounds like 'The A Team' by @EdSheeran.

Not literally, of course, but the subject matter is of the same girl-going-down-the-wrong-path story... Then I watched the videos again...

The Canon works wonders.

Not taking anything away from the tunes. Just pointing out I have the eye/ ear for music.



When you hear this one, you're play count should remain at zero due to how many JACK 'EMS you give it. You can hear the inner roar come out with the flow(s) and DJ statement.

This is the formula. This is the singalong right now. This is the moesh.

I blogged previously about the The Wilhelm Scream before but having it as an .mp3 now is so much better for the world as we know it; the thinking man's tune.

Let The Blake Build

If you heard about @JamesBlake then I recommend you go see an Otolaryngologist cus his name has been around for a hot minute - His 15 miuntes started about 25, 30 minutes ago if you ask me.

I could visualise my heart changing shape as it beats, something along the lines of the intro for 'House', whilst watching this video of Blake & co perform at the BBC Maida Vale Studios. When his voice changed, my feet left the ground, but mind you, I'm sitting on a chair.

If you don't know why he was shortlisted for BBC's Sound of 2011 list... Have a butchers. 'Du'e is fire yo' as my American friend would say.
