New music blog, Dirty Apples, have burst onto the scene with this incredible mix they’ve uploaded to Mixcloud. It’s the most beautiful selection of downtempo tracks I have heard for absolutely ages. Including artists such as Nina Simone, Lamb, Erykah Badu, Dntel and Medeski, Martin & Wood, it spans just shy of an hour long and dances seamlessly from track to track. They’ve set the bar very high with their first mix and I cant wait to hear more from them!

I’ve been following Mystro for nearly ten years now and he’s always been one of the freshest and slickest emcees in the UK. He’s also one of the nicest and most hilarious guys you’ll find in the scene – which reminds me, you have to check out his “Mystro Investigates” video series on the Spine TV site, very entertaining stuff!
The F.D.T. EP spans ten tracks and … [read more]

In London on Thursday 8th April?! If you answered ‘yes’, then you have no excuses but to be down at East Village, EC2A, for Brave & Bold Presents Underground. Kicking off at 9pm and for the paltry fee of £5 before 10:30 (£7 otherwise), the line-up is pretty damn stellar.

This is a little teaser promo video for Alex B‘s imminent debut LP, Moments, coming out 6th April on Elm and Oak. To suggest that this short clip is slick would be a gross understatement! It was directed by Chad Simcox and co-directed by Randal Kirk II – they’ve done a wicked job of it, as is clearly evident.

You’re in for a treat today! American beat-smith, Alex B, has a free track up on the XLR8R website for you to check out. Head over there and remember to vote if you like it (which you will!). The track is called You and I Both Know, and it’s a killer of a track. Rich soul sounds with that head-nod beat, marinated in slick g-funk keys. What more do you need?!
