Brand New Video - London's Son

It goes without saying that the city which you live in affects you and your lifestyle, and being a Londoner myself, I'd like to send this one out to all of the Londoners out there. However don't let me restrict you from being involved and enjoying the track if you're not a Londoner! Just sit back, relax, and enjoy another video being brought to you by Luke Van Boom, the director of the Party Hard video. The track is entitled 'London's Son' and it is by Danso featuring Bramble...

It's Not Me & Him!It's...Him & Her!!!

Without claiming to be an expert in this particular genre of music, I would say that I know the difference between good music, and to put it politely, not so good music. I'm not sure if I enjoyed listening to this mixtape mostly because it was something quite different to what I usually find myself listening to, or mostly because it was genuinely a showcasing of Incisive's talent. Whatever it was, I can assure you that one of the fundamental reasons was because it is a prime example of good music in 2011. Surely you can disagree with me but not before you've had a listen for yourself!

New material from Giggs for FREE!!!

As you can probably see from the title, I am extremely excited about this! I've been anticipating this for quite a while and the wait is now over. It is FINALLY here!!!Take Your Hats Off...

Being one of the most talked about Grime artists of the moment, this artist is striving to success on his own accord. It is clear to see that he is working hard to push the boundaries whilst doing what he does best which is making music. His lyrics have literally become an everyday part of our lives whether we like it or not. I know we are all guilty of having repeated at least one of the following in reference to a Giggs track, or just subconsciously without realising...

• Look what the cat dragged in

• Talk to me darling

• I'm a breast man but I rate asses

• Jheez!

• Walk in the park

• Kicks and the hats matching

I could go on...I’m sure there are many more but this is just one of the ways in which we could convey his success. What I probably like most of all about Giggs is that he continues to produce bangers, without changing the style of his music and sticking the real Grime sound. Not to mention his voice!

With that being said, his brand new mixtape 'Take Your Hats Off (I'm Offended)' is NOW available for FREE download! Yes, I did say FREE. So what are you waiting for? To download simply click here. Enjoy!

100% Gappy Ranks!!!

With the launch of his own music label which is better known as Hot Coffee Music in 2010, Gappy Ranks has been taking the world by storm with tracks such as Stinking Rich, Heaven in Her Eyes and Put Di Stereo On. Not just holding the title of an artist, he is a DJ, a CEO and collectively, an entrepreneur! With his talent not only being recognised and heavily sought after here in the UK, but all over the World, Gappy Ranks is almost revitalising the Reggae sound which we all know and love, and bringing it to the attention of the younger generation today. Having previously performed at prestigious events such as Sting, Kingston, Jamaica in 2009, and being nominated for Best Reggae Act at the Brit Awards in the same year, there really does seem to be no boundaries for this musician.

If I had to choose I would probably say that 'On Fire' ‘Cannon’ 'Dusty Me Seh' and 'Ragga Ragga' are my personal favourites featured on the CD, but I shall leave you to decipher between the number of tracks available and decide on your very own personal favourites. Ragga Ragga is one of the tunes that left an impression on me slightly more than the others, simply because on this particular track he was hailing out all of the artists who inspire him in the Music scene, mentioning many artists and popular clashes which had me nodding in agreement. From Sugar Minott to Bass Odyssey to the Gully and Gaza situation, he mentioned them. Of course he did miss out a few out on the way but this was well and truly inevitable. There are a wide variety of tracks on the compilation ranging from those with a more stereotypical reggae beat which we might associate with legendary music labels such as Studio One, there are tributes to people like Tubby T to name a few, and as well as this, we have the man himself Gappy Ranks displaying his original and creative style on more recent riddims such as the Badda Don riddim. Therefore you could only agree with me in saying that there is more than enough to choose from. With that being said, you don’t need to stick to my personal favourites listed above. Do give it a listen for yourself and feel free to tell me what your personal favourites were, seeing as we are all entitled to our own opinions and will more often than not come to different conclusions.

Keep an eye on this artist and do not forget to purchase his forthcoming album ‘Thanks and Praise’ which will be out in stores on the 4th April 2011. In the mean time, you can download this mix which is ‘100% Gappy Ranks’ mixed by Moviestar Johnny (Dusty Mix CD) by clicking here.

Do as you please under your own roof, but not Underground.

Whilst commuting, many of us like to occupy ourselves with something to help the time to pass that little bit quicker, or at least something to make it feel that way. Now I am aware that we all occupy ourselves during this time in a range of different ways from reading a book, to listening to music and the list goes on BUT today on the tube, I witnessed the most peculiar of all strategies for passing time as you commute...

Yes so I'm hoping you've guessed it by now...LIPSING! This couple were on a proper lipppppppppppsing ting!!! From Elephant & Castle all the way up until Balham, give or take a few stops, they were were literally eating each other's faces. Taking a breather between a couple of stops which was probably just to catch some air due to a lack of Oxygen intake. (At least something stopped them.) Imagine people were trying to alight the Tube and these two are just standing there on that yellow pole near the doors lippppppppppppppsing like there's no tomorrow!...Or tonight even!

Don't think that it was just this exchange of saliva business going on here either. The way that I saw my girl rubbing herself up and down on the man. My gosh. I could only conclude that they were aiming to skip foreplay tonight and the only justifiable way of doing that was to get that part over and done with on the train!

Now I don't know about you, but I personally couldn't be doing them things on the Tube. Not saying that a little sign of affection in public is not acceptable, but there was nothing little about THIS display. Half way through the journey I actually wanted to tap them on the shoulder and remind them that they were still in public. I even saw a couple of other commuters who were also forced to witness this encounter twitching uncomfortably and looking at their shoelaces as though the latest episode of Eastenders was being broadcasted live on them. Poor people! So I guess the reason that I thought that it was relevant to talk about this on here was that I thought it carried a very valuable message which we can all relate to and apply to our daily lives which is...

Don't be selfish, and try to think about how your actions might affect others around you!
