You can stream the track below, with pre-orders available over on Bandcamp. The release date is scheduled for 20 December. Continue reading “Ray Vendetta & Giallo Point: Laugh Loud Laugh Last”

I’ve been struggling to write more than a couple of paragraphs for the past few months. Various reasons, too boring or personal to go into now, but it does mean I have failed to shine a light on some decent projects that have been given life in the interim. I wanted to do a bit of a catch up to make amends for my slack attitude and also to bring some thoroughly good music to your attention. Continue reading “The Insomniac Section (Don’t Sleep)”

New project from Ray Vendetta – aka RayOfLight – as he teams up with Sons Phonetic producer, Mook, for 5000 Kelvin.
Written in seven hours, the project is a testament to Ray’s prolific output, following on from his Odd Couple intro EP with Tesla’s Ghost and various other releases over the past few years.
Mook brings a nice range of styles to the table, giving enough creative room for Ray to test his abilities. 5000 Kelvin is available to stream below and you can download it here.
Ray Vendetta and Tesla’s Ghost blessed us with a new video, the next to be taken from their debut Odd Couple project. Spinal Sword is produced by Falling Down, who is responsible for all the beats throughout the album. This Thing of Ours is available to download here.
New dope from The Odd Couple – aka Ray Vendetta and Tesla’s Ghost – as they drop their long awaited collaborative project.

It came as sad news to me and the hip hop world when the death of 7th Dan was announced recently. I had been lucky enough to meet him and speak with him over the years and it was always apparent to me how much of a good soul he was. He has also been responsible for making some fantastic music, as I’m sure you will all have experienced at some point. Continue reading “In Memory of 7th Dan”
Great new video from arguably one of this country’s most accomplished lyricists. Melanin 9, the Triple Darkness affiliate and MC’s MC is back with a new album soon. It’s his first in a while, but to prove he’s as dope as ever, check the new single Polaroid. The track features Karl Sage on the hook and it was produced by Walterwarm & Cowode. I have an interview with M9 coming to the blog soon, so stay tuned for that.
