The London venue has some cracking events coming up for the rest of the year. One of the best music venues in London has to be Electric Brixton. The venue is housed in Brixton’s Town Hall Parade and is steeped in early 20th-century tradition. From its Palladium Picture House days to its time as the Fridge nightclub, Electric Brixton has brightened south London with genre…

South London rapper Mr Ekow spits the ultimate flames in his eponymous freestyle. I have a backlog of submissions to get through. It’s not something bloggers talk about in the open but we get a lot. I’m glad I kept this one. Mr Ekow is a rapper from South London and in his “Ekow Freestyle”, he raps incredible bars over the Nas and Swizz Beatz’s…

The iconic night for Dilla is back for another year, featuring usual suspects Spin Doctor, Kidkanevil, DJ Lok, and a live performance from Phat Kat. Due to commitments every year since I last went in 2012, I’ve yet to return to J Dilla Changed My Life. It makes me sad but thems the breaks (pun intended). But the UK’s only official Dilla tribute night continues…

Imperial is the first guest in our new mini interview series. It’s difficult to find a balance between long form and short form writing. Long form is extensive but takes time to read.

A defining feature of the scene is the ability to stimulate….

Our guest writer Zweli Chibumba gives us the lowdown on London producer Carns Hill and his penchant for sampling. No doubt when you think of Carns Hill you consider SRB Separation Confirmed, The Countdown from 10 or the simple yet iconic Hills Productions soundbite. You might also associate Carns with drill or trap thanks to 67/86/Reekz MB. Or other collaborators such as Blade Brown, Young’s Teflon,…

Nottingham’s audio maestro Kareem Jamal returns under a new name and new video for single, “Matter.” You may remember way back in 2014 when we did a One to Watch profile on Nottingham rapper KJ Palmer. Much like Mount Kimbie, a lot has happened in that time but the musician returns with a new name and new music. Kareem Jamal is still self producing and…

Leo Napier gets the remix treatment by Le Wanderer on latest single Before I Go Away. A move from the US to Ladbroke Grove may puzzle some but there’s no mistaking Leo Napier’s vocal qualities. The US-born London-based singer has made a bit of a name for himself, lending his talents to Gramatik’s Native Son and now he looks to embark on his solo career…
