If you’re not clued up yet on the powers of Jordan Rakei, shame on you. He brings his neo-soul production to the streets of London and has been collab’ing with UK Hip-Hop artist Barney Artist.

Chris McClenney never fails to bring the funk. McClenney drops the grooving drum patterns, funk bassline and beautiful synths. GoldLink‘s trademark double time flow rides the beat majestically, and all this together creates magic. Definitely one of the next house party. Chris McClenney joins GoldLink on tour kicking off in March, more info HERE.
Holding On, is my new release. It’s an ode to London, and all the travels and adventures it has given me. Video above, stream below.
Nice new release from Rejjie Snow. Very chilled beat, easy drums, chimes come in and out and a lovely soulful, Marvin Gaye type vocal hook. Rejjie reminds me a little of Slick Rick the Ruler on this one, with that story-teller flow. Nice tune.

Four tablespoons of bars, a pinch of of drums and pour in the jazz/soul combo, bring to boil. Rapper Tru, and producer Sum Total have got the recipe. The beat is just so smooth; laid back drum beats, gliding jazz guitars layered on each other. Tru comes in with a reminiscent flow which sails in-between singing … More Tru – Muddy V3 (Prod. Sum Total)
This is super dope. Some seriously sonic fluidity here. Chiming bells sweep in and out, vocal samples played in like drums, crinkles and curls of electronic sounds hit your ear all over. Seriously good.

Whilst scouring the internet for intellect, I found this tape chilling in the intersect and it’s all hip-hop with introspect. ScienZe is a rapper from Brooklyn, NY and he has just dropped a hefty 11 track. This tape oozes soul and jazz, the beat selection is on point. I especially like those produced by King I … More ScienZe – #Georgia Tape
This is a great example of the new school of funk/R&B/soul/Hip-Hop. The bass ripples underneath funky synth wobbles and crackling drums. This glistens with smooth cool. Love it. It’s also on free download.
