So today I bring you an interview with Raze, a hip-hop producer from England’s Midlands. We discussed his roots, the journey music has taken him on so far, and also the new release from the duo he is half of; Raze N Lava Flo. Here’s what was said…

Your Woman was the one-hit-wonder in 1997 for pop outfit White Town. I remember hearing the track on the radio and thinking “I like this!”, but alas, it was one of those situations where I continually failed to grab the name of the artist and the track’s name. But eventually I did get those precious nuggets of info, and 13-year-old me strolled into the record shop to buy the CD single. The track went to number one in the UK … [read more]
It’s nearly July already – where does the time go?! Anyway, some news snippets and cynical comments from yours truly today, I guess. I’ll mix it up a bit by chucking in a few recommendations too…

It's that time again. Five more pages for you to peruse and abuse. Quick recap for those not in the know… all of the artists and groups I feature have one thing (at least) in common; all have had less than 10,000 page-views. If you know of any artists on MySpace, with less than that many page-views, that you think I should feature, please let me know. Also, as a side note, I've now set up a MySpace page specifically for this blog, you can … [read more]
It's Saturday, so let's kick back, relax, and get some folking action in the form of The Chapin Sisters. Sick of the daily stress and rigours of nine-to-five life? Tough shit, but the music from the trio that are The Chapin Sisters, might take your mind off such trauma for a while.
This trio, originally from New York but now living in Los Angeles, are; Abigail, Lily, and Jessica – three real-life sisters, that have been together as a band for about 18 … [read more]
This week has been a strange one, mainly due to my World Cup induced sleep deprevation, but yet here we are, Friday again! This week the track is from someone I've already recently talked about, but this is a different track to the two I previously put up for download…
I'm feeling tired and ill today. So no 'proper' blog entry for today, I'm afraid. You can blame the World Cup, if you like. Being here in Australia has meant that the games have been live around midnight, 2am, and 5am. And now I have a bloody cold too. I'm never ill, but it must be cos of the sleep loss. How privileged must you feel? You finish checking 300 other more important sites, then think "ah, I'll see what that div-kid is talking bout … [read more]
