Song of the Day: Hop In the Place – Sticky Blood (ft. LDizz)

sticky blood hop in the place

Following on from their Rhythm & Grime single Garn Again featuring Snowy and Yxngz, the production duo STICKY BLOOD keep smashing out the tracks and another one Hop In The Place. This track takes on Grime x Trap vibes, with its deep bass and beats, and the hard-edged lyrics.

Their work-rate is second to none, with a string of releases such as their debut EP I-D in 2015 and follow-up EP Blood Is Stickier Than Water gaining support from Red Bull, Complex, Radio 1Xtra, Clash, Wonderland, NME, Toddla T, Mistajam and Monki.

The two are now joined by another Steel City representative L Dizz who is from the new generation of Grime, and has gained attention from 1Xtra DJMistajam. He distinguishes himself between a melodic, anthemic chorus to rapping with a demanding, unyielding flow with a strong and powerful delivery that commands your attention. It’s backed by STICKY BLOOD’s alarming synths, snappy snares, militant hi hats all backed with a bass big enough to shake the grimiest of raves up.

They are already unsettling other producers across the UK with their unique and explorative sounds and wave of releases, and will continue to do so throughout the year. The anticipation is growing and growing for the new duo in town.

Song of the Day: Big N Serious (Remix) – Coco (ft AJ Tracey & Nadia Rose)

After tearing up the airwaves with the original, COCO has just dropped the remix of Big N Serious featuring Nadia Rose and AJ Tracey.

Sheffield’s hottest property recently performed an epic freestyle on Kiss FM for DJ MK & Shortee Blitz. From ticking all of the right boxes with the music tastemakers, including dropping his explosive Fire in the Booth for BBC DJ Charlie Sloth, through to performing at Notting Hill Carnival and making his debut at Ibiza Rocks last year, COCO has bypassed the route of the recent ‘new generation’ of emcees to solidly construct his own lane.

Named as one of Annie Mac’s artists to watch in 2016 in Mixmag, he’s definitely on the tip on everyone’s tongue…check out the remix to Big N Serious.

 

 

 

New Track! Like I Do – Shinobi (ft. LDizz)

Shinobi Like I Do

Continuously representing the northern underground music scene, SHINOBI just slammed his brand new track Like I Do.

The explosive banger sees the Sheffield grimester spitting bars over a murky Sticky Blood instrumental that draws on the early days of grime, made up of a racing backline and jerking synth fuelled beat, while fellow Sheffield MC LDizz drops  an energetic verse.

The co-founder of A.O.K (All Out Krew) and Sheffield-based online radio station, UK Mondo recently enjoyed success with the Sheffield hip-hop collective Clubs & Spades, made up of fellow MC Matic Mouth and producers Andy Nicholson and Jamie Shield. Their track Clearer Coast was made Record of the Week by Charlie Sloth on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Record of the Day online and hit radio playlists throughout the UK. SHINOBI‘s solo release is set to make serious waves among music critics and fans.

Like I Do is available now via iTunes…but for now, check out the video. 

Having smashed it with the original, Sheffield’s hottest grimsta (that’s grime star, just in case you’re wondering) COCO comes back harder with two remixes of the single, Big Bou Yah with Jammz, Terminator and Trigga  on the vocal remix (watch the video) while Walter Egodrops drops a brand new dub of the hugely supported 1Xtra’s Toddla T original.

Big Bou Yah has been heavily playlisted across radio and TV, making COCO the one to watch for 2016. The three-minute explosive banger comes as the follow-up to debut single Target Practice, released via Girls Music in July, which earned the upriser serious recognition from Earmilk and GRM Daily.

New Music Video: Target Practice – Coco

Sheffield Grime MC COCO has just dropped the visuals for his brand new single Target Practice,  produced by BBC 1Xtra and fellow Sheffield native Toddla T.  The video sees the duo in a natural but nostalgic video, with some live footage of the track being performed live at a rave with some guest cameos.

Grime followers will know he has been MCing and producing grime music for close to 10 years. Uninspired by the Grime scene, COCO began creating his own music which has seen him make his way on to the radar of many DJs and other artists alike, gaining nationwide exposure and featuring across national platforms.

Target Practice is now available on iTunes.
