New Music Video: Groove – Shaka Shams (ft. Olivier William)

Currently residing  Belgium, 18-year old rapper and poet SHAKA SHAMS drops the video to his hip-hop/funk number, suitably entitled ‘Groove.’

The latest release comes from his new EP, Elements: Crystal Clear, which sees SHAKA SHAMS – who took the name from his South African/Zulu roots – demonstrating his versatility as a performer, marrying his naturalistic rhymes with lyrics inspired by everything from street scenes to films to anime. It is these borderless sonic journeys that drag you into this teenager’s world, a place with no boundaries. Crystal Clear is the first in a series of releases under the Elements banner which will see Shaka exploring different themes – with this EP it’s the sometimes murky world of late night club life.

Having picked up the hip-hop bug from his cousin at the age of 11, he started recording his own track at their house. Though it would have been easy to keep music as just a hobby, Shaka was determined to get to the next level and to get his music heard by as many people as possible. Taking influence from hip-hop both old and new, as well as keeping a close eye/ear on subgenres such as hip house, trap and boom-bap.

So it’s time to get a little taste of Shaka’s work; check out ‘Groove’…

EP Review: The Clubs – Kiko Bun

If you’re longing for a trip to the Caribbean, I reckon KIKO BUN will take you there in a matter of seconds through his new EP ‘The Clubs’.

Kicking off with a vibrant and psychedelic take on ska with introductory single ‘ Fistful Of Nothing’, the four-track set goes on to featuring reggae that’s reminiscent of the rocksteady era, still obtaining the vibrancy.

I’m going to stick out my neck here: not every musician can successfully pull off reggae-fusion productions, but this north-west Londoner has definitely GOT IT: not only he makes a great contender in the modern reggae music scene, KIKO BUN somewhat pays homage to the legends of the 60s and 70s, such as The Mighty Diamonds, Slim Smith and Bob Marley.

Start your weekend with a ray of Sunshine and hit the play button on ‘The Clubs’
