Just ‘This’ and ‘That’

Hello. Good weekend? I felt like a right smug bastard as I read that New York City Council don’t want “gangsta rap” included in the proposed new Hip-Hop Museum. The museum itself isn’t planned to be opened till late 2008 or early 2009, but apparently a member of the council claimed that anybody could be a thug and that the museum was for hip-hop and not gangsta rap. Suits me just fine. Although perhaps they could save one piece of wall space for a photo of people launching bottles of piss at G-Unit back at Reading Festival a couple of years ago – with the caption “this is what happens to thugs”.

Anyway, I want to share a few recent discoveries with you, just cos I’m nice like that. I’ve got some hip-hop, some folk-rock, and an interesting UK hip-hop remix of an Arctic Monkeys track.

So, first up; Surreal and The Sound Providers. Seperately, i.e. Surreal and then The Sound Providers, these dudes have been around for a while – but now they’re back and combined into a deadly force, attacking the airwaves with their jazzy hip-hop sounds. This track is the b-side to their recent single release…

Next up is a track by Australian; Bob Evans. His name is actually Kevin Mitchell and he is/was part of the band Jebediah, but for some reason I guess he felt Bob Evans would be a better name to use. This is a real upbeat track and also has a pretty funny video, give it a listen…

Lastly, an interesting take on Arctic Monkeys. I’m not really a fan of Arctic Monkeys, I think I’ve enjoyed each track I’ve heard of theirs the first one or two times I’ve heard them – but here’s one of their tracks with UK emcee Shameless giving his own lyrical adaptation, make of it what you will…

That’s your lot, don’t get greedy now. Should have a couple of reviews this week from artists so good that you wont quite comprehend why you’ve never heard of them before. Anyway, hope that excitement doesn’t make you lose too much sleep tonight. Until next time, paix dehors!
