I love Levelz. Everything the Manchester collective does seems to be founded on the basis that they have a shit load of fun in the process and this latest joint is no exception. Front Face was filmed during the madness of Outlook Festival and features bars from Skittles, T-Man, Truthos Mufasa, Chunky, Chimpo and Black Josh, with Biome and Metrodome on production. The track is also available as a free download, which you can grab via Bandcamp. The video was made by Tarnish Vision.

Sublime new track from Manchester artist, LayFullStop, as she brings the themes of unconventionality, misconceptions of women and spirituality to a blissed out, minimalist beat.

It’s been just over a year since we had a solo project from Black Josh, but for those of you fiendin’ out there, fear not cos the man is back with a new mixtape. It’s called Brexit and it is going to feature loads of new music from the Manchester MC, including this Torai produced nugget, Little Rock. Pre-orders for the mixtape are available now via iTunes.

More proof, if proof were needed, that Manchester vocalist IAMDDB is destined for great things. This is her latest video for More, another great extract from her recent Hoodrich EP. You can stream the EP on all the usual platforms right now.

Beautiful new song from The Mouse Outfit. I Wonder features local connects IAMDDB and their regular sparring partner, Fox. The track was produced by Chini and Metrodome. The Mouse Outfit are on tour very soon, so keep an eye out for them passing through your town; always a good show.

The long-awaited album from street soul duo Children of Zeus is still some way off, but to satisfy the fans like me who have been fiendin’ off the singles that have emerged over the past couple of years, Konny and Tyler have compiled The Story So Far.
The EP features all your favourites – Crown, Still Standing, No Strings Attached – along with some dusty new flavours, like Tonight, which is available to stream below. Pre-orders for the EP are available here. Read the rest of this entry »

More good vibes from LayFullStop as she brings us a video for her Crown City song. Manchester has always been a hotbed for good music, but recently the levels (no pun) seem to be reaching even crazier heights, thanks to artists like Lay, IAMDDB and Children of Zeus, among many others. It’s an exciting time. You can also stream Crown City on all the usual platforms.

More fresh sounds from Manchester, but with a look back to the past, as Chimpo takes us on a trip down memory lane on his new track, 1996. A big jump-up beat, some dreamy vocals on the hook and Chimpo’s ever-distinctive flows, took me straight back to those halcyon jungle days. It’s so true to the original sounds from back then, you could slip into a Brockie set from One Nation and no one could tell the difference. Great video from Tarnish Vision too. 1996 is available to download now via Box N Lock.

The long awaited third release from one of MCR’s underground queens, IAMDDB, touched ground this morning. Hoodrich follows on from WAEVEYBBY and Vibe, which emerged over the past couple of years and along with a number of features with the likes of INKA and Lenzman, have propelled her into the spotlight.
And rightly so. IAMDDB is a pretty unique talent and still independent enough to be a problem for the current industry vanguards. She is definitely going to blow at some point, now it’s just a question of when. Read the rest of this entry »

Manchester’s unique talent, IAMDDB, is fast becoming the next sure thing to make it big. She is fiercely independent, but as the views shoot up and the A&Rs start circling, I don’t think it’ll be long before she’s snapped up by a major. She just released her new song, Shade, and it’s racked up over 11k views in 48 hours. I have an interview with her coming to Brapp soon, so keep your eyes open for that one. In the meantime, enjoy the new visual delights of Shade.
