A great selection of music here, as First Word Records wheel out their latest end of year compilation. For Two Syllables, DJ Gilla compiled a number of tracks that have been released by First Word artists over the last 12 months, including gems from Don Leisure, Darkhouse Family and 14KT, as well as a brand new song from Manchester soul-rap duo, Children of Zeus.
