CLIPZ No Time Feat. Nia Archives, Beenie Man, Cristale, ShaSimone

Ahead of Carnival CLIPZ, Nia Archives, Beenie Man, Cristale and ShaSimone have joined forces for a jungle anthem. Play this loud.


Swindle Miss Kane

Producer Swindle is better know for his work with UK rappers. However, he got access to the Blue Note Records archive to reimagine ‘Miss Kane’ as part of their new release and he went in.


Greentea Peng Look To Him

Greentea Peng is looking inwards for inspiration on ‘Look To Him’. Speaking on the track she says, “‘Look To Him’ explores the idea of originality and the notion of tapping into source energy for creativity and inspiration rather than just searching for it amongst your peers and surroundings.”


Sonnyjim & The Purist Barz Simpson Feat. MF DOOM & Jay Electronica

Having produced for Freddie Gibbs, Action Bronson, Danny Brown and countless others, The Purist is a force to be reckoned with in the underground. Likewise, as a rapper and producer, Sonnyjim is up there with the best. So when they came together for a new collaborative project named White Girl Wasted, we knew it’d be a wrap. Add features from MF DOOM and Jay Electronica and it’s a recipe for a cult classic.


Jean Dawson 3 HEADS*

It’s been six long months since Jean Dawson dropped ‘PORN ACTING*’. We’ve been waiting patiently for new material and he hasn’t disappointed with the head banging rodeo that is ‘3 HEADS*’.


Louis Culture 7AM

Social Media is a highlight reel. Nobody sees the work that goes in behind the scenes to  reach all the shiny milestones. South London’s Louis Culture is keeping it real on his latest release. “7AM is the come up” he says. “There’s so many unseen things that go into being able to do this. Whether it’s me talking about the DIY booth we used to use in P-Rallel’s bedroom or Bawo talking about his days at Waitrose, which happened to be my first job too”.
