EP Review: Meanwhile: The EP – DayDreamers

As the new year arrive, hip-hop trio DAYDREAMERS have received a trail of hype from their hometown Suffolk, Virginia with their three track EP Meanwhile: The EP.

This neat project gives a sneak preview into what to expect from the uprisers in the forthcoming months. Compared to their previous dub heavy releases on NEW LEASE MUSIC, this EP admittedly has more spice, where each emcee take turns on tearing up the infectious hooks with their slick delivery.

This package may only contain three tracks, but it has A LOT of heat! Check out their EP below:

Song of the Day: Let It Side – Tee Krispil

TEE KRISPIL steals today’s hotspot with a message for all the lady bosses out there through track, ‘Let It Side’.

The track is about eradicating that fight of inner conflict by going with the gut feeling and be the person you want to be – without being obsessive. In a nutshell the message in this three-minute banger is to let your hair down and Let It Slide.

The accompanied debut video, in Tee words, is ‘as equally bossy as it is silly’, a great representation of the rapper-on the-rise.

Song of the Day: Step Up – Filthy Gears (ft. Wiley, Jammz, Capo Lee & C Cane)

After dropping his debut ‘Filthy Gears’ album, plus singles like ‘See Us MC and ‘Running’, the name FILTHY GEARS has been buzzing around the scene.

His combination of different elements from hip-hop, jungle and garage make for a unique spin on the raw and energy-laden sound that is prevalent across the 18-track release. His continued evolution of grime has made him stand out to both MC’s and DJ’s earning him strong support from the most respected and seasoned names in the game. Featuring a cross-section of emcees from the legendary to the most exciting new talent, FILTHY GEARS features P Money, Wiley, MTP, YGG, Hitman, Jammz, C Cane, Culprit and many more.

Having anonymously produced music for 25 years, recent months have seen the grime master step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, which has remained firmly fixed on him. A rigorous series of free downloads, uploads and MC collaborations has posed the question of whether there’s more than just one person creating such a volume of output, but the dogged determination and quality music leads back to a one man army.

New Music Video: Lurks At Night – J Fresh (ft. Yus)

The latest record to drop from the well-received ‘Fruit Salad’ album, J FRESH calls in Yus for ‘Lurks At Night’.

With a sharp-looking visual, that dropped on JDZ Media, and a bassline heavy instrumental, Yus sends out a stream of rapid fire and reload bars. The J Fresh production is a shining example of his skills as he sparks off Dizzee’s ‘I Luv U’ mix with a quirky concoction of garage, bassline and a nod to Artful Dodger x Craig David classic, ‘Rewind’.

Making his producer debut in early 2017, J FRESH has shown commendable determination to solidify himself within the scene. The release of his two E.P’s and his album have proved for continuous growth and recognition, seeing his music premiered with the likes of DJ Target at BBC Radio 1Xtra, picked up for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s ‘Introducing’ list and heavily supported across Kiss FM and Capital Xtra.

His ‘Fruit Salad’ album features a host of collaborations and contributions from the likes of DJ Target, Charlie Sloth, DJ Olos, Godsgift, Monkstar, DJ Ironik, Lady Ice, Predz UK, ShaoDow and Serocee making it an action packed, 15 track combo of dynamic production skills and talent.
