EP Review: The Sickness – Redd Tunes

Featuring a collection of tracks that could be appeasing to nostalgics of the old-school, London-based rapper/producer REDD TUNES slaps down his first project of the year, entitled ‘The Sickness.’

With loops of chill-out sounds that could be easily associated with Fila high tops (unlaced, of course), slick tracksuits complete with thick gold chains, this set pays homage to the real art of britcore and also expresses the concerns of the commercialisation of its parent – hip-hop – suppressing the realism of the sub-genre.

But there’s no chance of that as REDD TUNES and featured artists on this EP, are on a mission to keep the britcore vibe alive. The Sickness EP is a strong reminder that music is an extension of one’s expression – and not a commodity.

This set is definitely worth a trail; check it out here

Must Listens: Kill The Alphabet, The Dopeness, Golden Era.

New Track: Gotham – Boy Nash

South London-based rapper BOY NASH is back with a brand new single, ‘Gotham’ to kick-start the new year.

The new release samples a rather laid-back hip-hop sound by Mantis Media and thoughtfully tackles topics which strongly centre around the purpose of life and visions for the future.

‘Gotham’ follows his highly anticipated 2017 EP, ‘YMLK Pt. III Shacklesback’, which gained massive support from platforms such as LinkUp TV, GUAP and Explicit LDN.

Check him out below:

New Track: Vato – Kurt Atlas

Following his entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC with track ‘Loud and Clear’, Dick Whitman – aka KURT ATLAS – isn’t backing down anytime soon and bounces right back with another banging joint, ‘Vato’.

Check it out below and take in that boisterous bassline…more music on the way…

Song of the Day: Loud and Clear – Kurt Atlas

Fresh on the rap game, New Jersey-born spitter/producer KURT ATLAS makes his entry on the blog and steals today’s hot spot with head-rolling banger ‘Loud and Clear’.

Although a freshman to the scene, this young upriser – now residing in Seattle –  is steadily building a dope catalogue of his music, which has been clocking up streams/views across platforms, including SoundCloud, Bandcamp and YouTube.

Why not jump on the hype and hit the play button on ‘Loud and Clear’…and if you like what you hear, hit that like button…and look out for more of his tracks, coming from REAL soon…
