Teck-Zilla – Summer Zilla (PREMIERE)

We have the premiere of Teck-Zilla’s latest beat tape called Summer Zilla. This summer has been a scorcher. Between the sweltering heat and the Nigeria’s dope ass World Cup shirt, there’s been a lot to be thankful for. Another Nigerian creative export lighting up this season is Teck-Zilla and we’re thrilled to be premiering his latest joint, Summer Zilla. In true mix-tape style, each beat…

SWARVY – Anti​-​Anxiety

SWARVY has dropped a new tape called Anti​-​Anxiety. Hands up if you hit a creative slump and you listen to your favourite artist to pick you up. Pretend I have both hands up as you read this. But in this instance, I didn’t run into the proverbial arms of a familiar musician. SWARVY was my object of inspiration and Anti-Anxiety provided the gateway I needed….

My Favourite Jamiroquai Albums [RANKED]

I ranked my favourite Jamiroquai albums in reverse order for you to debate or agree with. My list of best to worst Knxwledge albums was tongue in cheek but it appears people are taking it seriously enough to search for his best albums and finding the article. I was tempted to do the same for Jamiroquai but decided against it. And rather than have a…

Fullee Love (aka Soup of Jurassic 5) – Deney Terrio

It’s time to get a groove on with Fullee Love on his new single, Deney Terrio. I’m writing this on a Monday morning and lord knows we need all the motivation we can get after a weekend of not working (if you’re fortunate enough to not work on those days). Deney Terrio is definitely the right way to start. It comes from Fullee Love, better known…

Ahwlee – [G​]​ist

Cali producer Ahwlee’s latest tape, [G]ist, is just what you need to chill. Ahwlee’s been on and off my radar for years and a tumble down the Bandcamp rabbit hole lead me to [G]ist. It’s a sub-15 minute journey through sweet calming tunes, perfect for a summer’s day or a quiet night while you’re relaxing. As major artists begin to embrace shorter releases, it’s important…

Musa Okwonga Compared Football Nations To Rappers And It’s Dope As Hell

The multi-talented poet and musician was spot on with his reasoning, covering every nation and some of the all-time greats in the process. We’re just two days away from kick-off and we’re getting excited. We already compiled a playlist to get you into the mood but now we have some more music-related football content for your enjoyment. Musa Okwonga is a modern polymath (“poet, author,…

Leftover Links #21: Rappers’ Delight

This edition of Leftover Links is all about the rappers. We get so many submissions every day, it’s not possible to get to them all as and when they come through. That means we miss things and get to them late. A bit like when you’re stuck for something to eat and have nothing substantial in, you put together a mish-mash concoction. And then it…

Sampleface’s World Cup Playlist

We’ve compiled a special World Cup playlist with songs from every nation in the tournament. The advantage of having run this blog for 6 years is the countries we’ve covered in that time. We still have some gaps to fill but in the meantime, celebrate the tournament starting on Friday with our special World Cup playlist. It features music/artists from every nation so you won’t…
