UK hip hop group Heavy Links give us The Essence.
Here at Sampleface, we’re always looking out for UK talent that might not get a look in, media wise. The kind of artists who aren’t able to do music full time or just people who want to get their name out. We were fortunate to be sent a link to this EP from Lincoln-based Heavy Links. According to their Facebook page, they are a four piece group comprising of MC’s Habitat and El Tel The Dopeness, DJ Donnie Propa and production from Exclusive Ramone and El Tel The Dopeness. Described as “Straight UK Boombap Hip Hop”, this definitely sounded up our street and we took a listen. Needless to say, we loved the beats and they were definitely the boom bap they claimed it to be. If you like what you hear, download yourself a copy (it’s free) and maybe check out the page for a Limited Edition vinyl copy for just £6. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on these guys, so let us know what you think!
