Kano – Trouble/Class Of Deja Ft Ghetts & D Double E
I had to pick this as it’s a fucking masterpiece not just musically but visually. I mean who drops two tracks on a 17 minute music video???? Kano is of a different level and he’s accompanied by two other greats in Ghetts & D Double E.
Skinnyman – Council Estate of Mind
Politicians need to go back 13 years and listen to this, he’s touching on subjects that are rife in today’s society.
Kendrick Lamar – Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe
My favourite current US rapper who seems to tick all the boxes when it comes to hits & content.
Where the fuck would we be without Afro Beat? Proper feel good summer vibe.
Super Cat – Don Dadda
Supa Cats flow is just hypnotising makes you wanna throw your elbows about.
Aaliyah – One In A Million
This is mine & my fiancé’s song ❤️
Wu-Tang Clan – CREAM
The greatest Hip Hop group to ever exist. Individually and collectively they are the best of all time.
The Streets – Has It Come To This
I remember when this came out pretty much related to every track on the album.
Bugzy Malone – MEN 2
Gotta respect the independent artist, flow and production is spot on. Find myself listening to this to be inspired.
Ocean Colour Scene – Hundred Mile High City
Seb Zito – 4 Ever (Four Thirty Two)
FUSE London resident, Seb Zito, is experiencing something of a purple patch currently, and his new EP, ‘4 Ever’, on Richy Ahmed’s Four Thirty Two label, follows releases for Eats Everything’s Edible, Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It and Enzo Siragusa’s FUSE London label, as well as his own Seven Dials Records. Incorporating Sabrina Johnston’s vocal, from Key of Life’s 1994 Sub-Urban Records classic, Zito rolls out a swinging, bass heavy, house heater. Deploying piano riffs and looped vocals, Zito also functions an ace Dub Mix for the heads. Label boss, Richy Ahmed, shows off his garage chops on his remix of ‘4 Ever’, with a tough, swinging drum mix that doffs its cap to the classic New Jersey house sounds. A second original production by Zito, ‘We Need Love’, continues to pursue the unison of garage house sounds, and the techier, acid inflicted vibes that has become a staple sound for this hotly tipped producer & DJ. Robert James & Jack Michael join the fold with a pacey and energetic version, resplendent with Reese style bass and truncated vocals.
