UNDER THE RADAR: JOHNNY VÚDOE

ARTIST: JOHNNY VÚDOE SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER NY’s Johnny VúDOE is an excellent rapper, his bars touching the beat with immense eloquence. The song that first put me onto his talent was ‘DOLO’, which contained top notch storytelling over hazy, summery production. His most recent track ‘In The Summer’ continued these themes, with a glimmering beat peppered with melodic licks serving as […]

2K19 REVIEWED: SLYDAHMER & THUGYEEZY – BEFORE THE FUNERAL

ARTIST: SLYDAHMER SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM ARTIST: THUGYEEZY SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM Before The Funeral was, for a while at least, by personal Detox. Desperate for more collaborations (and music in general) from ludicrously talented producer/rapper Slydahmer and one of the true modern god MC’s ThugYeezy, I had to make do with the singles ‘Eighteen’ and ‘Neighbours’ for the last half a […]

Interview Season 2: JUIICE

Texas rapper JUiiCE has made a decent splash on my radar as of late, his music is fast paced, determined and most importantly comes from the soul. We talked about his inspirations, his favourite people to work with, and his plans for the future. 1. You recently dropped the #GlossStarTape, which was a nice collection of tracks. When will I […]

Interview Season 2: Real Chrispy

A poet, rapper and songwriter, Real Chrispy has just released the video for his track ‘Fixated’, a smash that appeared on my first compilation tape. 1. How long have you been a poet/songwriter? Your skills are evident in the stuff you release, so I’d guess they come from years of experience. I’ve been writing songs, poetry & even little jingles […]

NEW SINGLE: JORDAN TAYLOR – FAKE LOVE

‘Fake Love’ is a common theme in hip-hop, especially in an age where genuine support is hard to distinguish from the fickleness of the mainstream market. Jordan Taylor has a solid discography that includes autotune-aided exuberance and soul-gazing emo, but his latest offering is something else entirely. Utilising the dark melodicism of Xtravulous’ production, he is able to apply his […]

Interview Season 2: SOLVRFLVRE

TERRORWORLD producer SOLVRFLVRE is one of the underground’s most underrated (and dare I say under-appreciated?) names. His beats perfectly capture the darkness that the true underground is imbued with to it very core, so its no surprise legends like SGP have chosen to rap on them. I wanted to interview him not only because of his extensive list of high-quality […]

He’s also maybe my biggest supporter, he’s the one person I can always count on to always listen to the music I drop and I can’t thank him enough […]

Interview Season 2: IAMPISSED

Perhaps the definitive face of BMB’s sound, IAMPISSED is a true student of SGP. That’s not to downplay the uniqueness of his sound, he has crafted some of the underground’s most recognisable production and worked with many of its legends. This is one of my most important and insightful interviews to date, and I hope you all enjoy it. 1. […]

Interview Season 2: G.P3$0

My latest interview is with XL Cartel member Peso, he’s been on my radar for almost a year now. Every song he drops is incredibly dope, and I’m hyped for his next project. 1.

Interview Season 2: SnowIcy

Russian producer SnowIcy is an impressive talent whose ability to craft dark, phonk-influenced music is just as strong as his penchant for turning r&b melodies into something even more hauntingly beautiful. Like other Russian producers influenced by the sound of the American underground, he is on the road towards becoming a prolific name and I hope more artists get in […]

2K19 REVIEWED: WHOSE – WHOSE CAMP

PRODUCER: WHOSE TWITTER INSTAGRAM whose camp, a collaborative project between producer whose and a variety of his rapper friends, is a wonderful slice of acrobatic, constantly shifting hip-hop condensed into a pleasant 20 minutes. The first track, a ‘welcome’ to the camp, sports the vocal talents of rapper Zech in all their glory. A serious heavyweight in the rap field, […]

Interview Season 2: Herme$ Pt. 2

My first interview with Palm Beach rapper Herme$ was one of my favourites, and in the time since then and this second instalment he’s expanded his ever growing discog massively, become part of the BMB collective alongside countless other talented rapper and producers, and generally proved that he’s one of the hardest working artists out of Florida. He’s got a […]

ARTIST: SINISTERSCHUYLER SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM PRODUCER: IAMPISSED SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM Just as the winter months are fading, SOUTHERNGAWTHMOBB’s SINISTERSCHUYLER and BMB’s IAMPISSED have reminded us why they can be some of the best for appreciating music. In line with the images he paints in the chorus of ‘BLIZZARD’, Schuyler’s sound on this EP has never been more evil. Cold hearted […]
