Absolute beast of a video from Dirty Dike as he celebrates the release of his latest album. Rex 01 features a whole lot of talented cats, as the Dikestar calls up Inja, Killa P and Foreign Beggars to get busy over a DnB tinted banger from Pete Cannon. It’s one of many gems to be found on Acrylic Snail, Dike’s first proper release in three years and probably my favourite album of his (I’m calling it already). You can experience the album in all its glory below and you can grab a physical over at the High Focus store. Continue reading “Dirty Dike ft. Inja, Killa P & Foreign Beggars: Rex 01 + Album Stream”

Inja x Pete Cannon: Her Room
Inja recently released his debut album on Hospital Records and in short, it is a triumph. It perfectly demonstrates not only his dexterity on the mic, but also the different styles that drum & bass can encompass within its own parameters. Her Room is just one of the gems to be found on the album and is one of a few produced by fellow Hospital resident, Pete Cannon.
Inja said of the track, “When you realise you’re living a lie and the only escape is to completely escape. Exit, run get out, go missing, whatever. Sometimes we all have to lock off the past, live with the memories and fly. Change the locks and don’t turn back.” Blank Pages is out now on all the usual platforms.
Inja x Pete Cannon: Intro
Happy to see we are nearing the release date for Inja’s debut on Hospital Records. The first extract was revealed earlier on in the month, with fellow label mate, Pete Cannon, on hand for the production. These two have worked together a lot, both on stage and in the studio, so it’s a given that whenever they emerge from the lab they are going to have something banging for us. This one is just the intro to the album, but manages to pack a hell of a lot of substance into just under two minutes of music. Hold onto your hats when the full album drops on 29 June. Pre-orders are available from the usual spots.
Inja x Chris Munky: Firesoul EP (Stream)
Still on a high from his recent signing to Hospital Records, Inja takes a step away from the DnB world and back into his old hip hop stomping ground, uniting with Chris Munky for the Firesoul EP.
Chris’s beats range from blissed out grooves, like on the opening title track, to the more drum heavy sounds of Life Sucks, all of which lay the foundation for Inja to display the skill, dexterity and charisma that has made him one of the UK’s best-loved MCs. Continue reading “Inja x Chris Munky: Firesoul EP (Stream)”
Inja X Pete Cannon: No Regrets
Stepping up the tempo now as Inja and Pete Cannon unite for the blistering No Regrets. Inja – arguably the happiest MC in the UK – recently paved the way for more time to be spent with his famous grin on his face, as he announced he had signed to the indie DnB powerhouse, Hospital Records. No Regrets is his first offering on the label and between him and Mr Cannon, they have made one hell of an introduction. No Regrets is available to download and/or stream here.
Gardna x Kreed ft. Inja, Eva Lazarus, Jman & Parly B: My Show
