New Track: Beast Boy – Jay Portal x DBLCRSS

Hailing from Hamilton – a city in Ontario – DBLCRSS and JAY PORTAL are hell-bent on injecting some serious fire into their hometown’s near non-existent hip-hop scene with brand new single,  ‘Beast Boy’

Although their latest effort is a hip-hop track that boasts an infectiously boisterous bass, the Canadian youngsters wanted to produce accompanied visuals that’s not the typical rap video – so there’ll be no feature of video babes twerking in the clubs with champagne poured all over them (sorry guys!)

‘Beast Boy’, the first release from their debut EP ‘Hell Is Where The Heart Is’, out now on all streaming/downloading sites.

Song of the Day: W&B – Nebr, The Tiger

Upcoming Detroit hip hop artist NEBR, THE TIGER rocks up into the limelight with latest track ‘w&b’. The left-field hip-hop banger that preaches an anthem to his lifestyle over a sub bass heavy beat with textured soundscapes produced by Newsensei.

For now, wrap your ears around ‘w&b’.

Song of the Day: Ting Dun – Ocean Wisdom (ft. Method Man)

After jumping in to the epicentre of the UK rap scene with the release of his independent Top 40 album ‘Wizville’ and the huge lead single ‘Revvin’ featuring Dizzee Rascal, OCEAN WISDOM is back with the visuals for another huge album joint ‘Ting Dun’ featuring Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man.

Sewn into very fabric of Ocean’s music output, from the tracks themselves to everything aesthetic, is pure, unadulterated hip-hop. Whilst he already boasted an impressive online following and had gained millions of views on his videos, ‘Wizville’ has been the driving force behind his recent surge in awareness and popularity. His incredible delivery and lyrical ability, teamed with first class productions and visuals fast-tracked OCEAN WISDOM to the forefront of our minds and playlists, and with the release of ‘Ting Dun’ he looks to set to remain there too.

Coming through with extraordinary execution on a beat interconnected with layers of vocal and hip-hop gold, the two wordsmiths demonstrate their mastery and inimitable styles. OCEAN WISDOM rallies into his double time flow during the course of the track whilst Meth’s mellow tone and wit is delivered with nostalgic precision.

Quickly becoming synonymous with the title of UK’s hip-hop visionary, OCEAN WISDOM takes things to new levels on this latest visual release. Grainy film effects sits over low-riders and Cadillac’s bouncing along on hydraulics against the backdrop of America’s East Coast bringing it home for hip-hop lovers and connecting both sides of the pond perfectly.

The first half of 2018 has become a monumental year for the Brighton native, having smashed a string of dates in the UK and Austria on his ‘Wizville’ tour, he also received 4/5 stars for Wizville from The Guardian. Ocean graced the 1Xtra studios and performed a historic Live Lounge alongside Dizzee Rascal for their track ‘Revvin’, which became highly playlisted by the station, and also went on to light up social networks with an exceptional cover of Busta Rhymes ‘Gimme Some More’.

Ferocious and fierce with a faultless flow, OCEAN WISDOM stays high on the agenda with ‘Ting Dun’ ft Method Man.
