Quite possibly the most filthy tune right now in grime. Not many producers can boast such a line up on the first single off their new album, and based on the beat you can understand how Z Dot's able to pull it off! His new release, 'A new light' is out NOW! Buy it from iTunes. Check my interview with Z Dot and Dan Dare for MTV here.
Z Dot was this weeks guest on Logan Sama's Kiss 100 show. He came down with Warlock and Revolver to spray bars and talk about the new release. Check that freestyle here and listen to the interview here.

A recent interview with the living legend, who's looking kinda old! Mr Iron Lungs is talks about inspirational quotes, why he feels the upcoming album 'The Crystal Meth' is going to be a classic, and why he doesn’t want to have marijuana as a forefront to his personality.
Another sick track from Smiler who's one of the relative newcomers to the UKHH scene but is making progess at a fast rate! Nice production once again, with tight flows, strong delivery and bars to match. I like the interpolation from Shirley Bassey's classic, 'Big Spender'.
Smiler - Spender by Smilermusic
Really rating this one, and altho the video came about about a month ago, a lot of you lot probably haven't heard or seen this so it had to be done.

The latest star to appear on the UK road rap scene is Sneak Bo from Brixton. Not too sure about the Nelly style chorus from US rapper Wiz Khalifa but the tune's hard and serves it's purpose well. He reminds me of an Ice Cube type of artist with an intense delivery, tight flow and a story to tell...
He's also featured on a remix with Chipmunk of this recent banger by Movado. I rate this!
Recently met up with grime's motor mouth Scrufizzer at Urban Development's all day event at The Rich Mix in East London. We got a quick summary of what's been happening in Scru's world and he then sprayed some speedy gonzales bars - the type that could only be matched by the likes of Twista or Busta Rhymes for speed!
21 April 2011
One of the heroes of our underground hip hop scene since the late 1990s drops a new video for the first time in a LONG time! Filmed in and around his stomping grounds Finsbury Park and Camden Town you can kind of see why he's held with such respect by so many in the UK scene.
Recently caught up with Nottingham's finest grime MC, Wariko down at Urban Development's All day event at Rich Mix in East London recently...he talks about what we can expect off his upcoming mixtape and I asked him his newest video, 'Class C Residue' which you can watch below..

We caught up with him recently at Urban Development's All Dayer at Rich Mix, East London, last Saturday. He was performing as part of Charlie Sloth's 'Fire out the booth' showcase alongside the likes of Dru Blu aka Don Strapzy, Black the Ripper and English Frank. Was a BIG show!

Dope video and track here with production from Jacob Safari. This is very different from anything you've ever seen, so get don't expect the norm!. This is from the full length album "ILLUMINATI THUG MAFIA".
Our newest contributor DJ Lubertz interviews one of the underground grime scene’s top producer DJs...
DJ Lubertz: You’re a DJ/producer and also have played at countless dances, radio stations, provided guest mixes and now your name has started getting a bigger buzz within the scene. How did you get involved with music production and DJing?
Spooky: I got involved from a young age, something like thirteen, but even before then I wanted to be a DJ so practising via one turntable, one tape deck and one CD was nuts. Then a DJ friend of mine brought me onto Mystic FM and the rest was history. As for the production side of things, I started off using Fruity Loops re-fixing the biggest grime tunes at the time i.e. Eskimo, Hoe, Pulse X, DPM etc. Then I used to watch others using Reason so tried my hand at that and stuck with it ever since.
DJ L: What’s your studio set up and how do you go about to making tracks?
S: I am a ‘Reason’ head. I have used ‘Logic’ before but now I got to get to grips with Rewire to give them the ultimate POWER! As for my studio set up, it's just me and a Mac. It would mainly start with a melody then build around it with subs, synths, basslines, strings, drum kits and so forth.
DJ L: How do you come to terms with dealing with bookings, and what are your thoughts on the current promoters and grime nights?
S: WE NEED MORE GRIME RAVES!!!!! The gap between each grime rave is too long and the fact that the funky house scene dominates the majority of the West End, most of East London comes like the West End for grime in a sense. Plus the fact that there's about ten to fifteen funky raves - week in week out. But one to two grime raves a month is not right when there's an audience in grime consisting of fans, DJs, MCs, bloggers, journalists, camera operators, photographers and producers who all want to experience the live element of grime. I am sure there are even a majority of funky house ravers and promoters who are getting fed up with the same old line up of DJs and MCs at the same raves week in week out.
DJ L: Which five producers would you like to work with?
S: Five producers I would like to collaborate with would have to be Swindle, Terror Danjah, Spyro, Darq E Freaker & Exo Remedy.
DJ L: With regards to Logan Sama's (Kiss 100) show being cut down to one hour a week, do you think there should be more platforms for grime on commercial radio?
S: I feel there should be more specialist grime DJs on mainstream radio like Kiss, 1Xtra, Choice, Capital FM, BBC London etc because Logan's show being cut to an hour ain't right. Nothing against Logan but you will not hear the best of grime in just one hour when there are producers and MCs who make more than an hour's worth of music a week. Plus I think its time most of the dead weight on most of these stations need to be dropped to make room for guys like me who will supply the best in grime.
DJ L: Has the grime scene become better or worse since 2006?, and what is your opinion about people going commercial and not supporting the scene they came from? (no indirect, *cough* cough*)
S: Many people tried to say grime died years ago, so why the fuck is it still going on? Even since 2006, its because nobody wanted to bring nothing new to the table or do anything different. That's why they tried to say it was dead. But as long as I'm about giving the people tunes like ''Spartan'' then the future's bright. As for all the commercial goon bags, let them stay over there. Just know the underground won’t keep your spot nice and warm for you, because we’ve got a bag of hungry guys out here taking your spots anyway.

The Wu-Tang Clan has added five U.K. dates to their current tour. The tour will begin with two shows at London’s HMV Forum in June and conclude with a headlining show at Manchester Academy in June. After a sabbatical from the domestic leg of the tour, which saw Raekwon release his Shaolin Vs. Wutang, Yelawolf and Young Dirty Bastard will join the Staten Island collective.
June 11, 12 – London HMV Forum
June 13 – Birmingham HMV Institute
June 14 – Edinburgh HMV Picture House
June 15 – Manchester Academy
Theboombox.com reports that the Clan's Abbot will miss the tour due to prior business engagements. "Well, I gotta be honest about the tour. I have too much business going this quarter, so I won't be on the tour," said RZA. "I'm going to try to join those guys during the springtime, though. Wu-Tang is coming to a lot of towns across the country and you know they'll leave their mark. I won't be there, unfortunately."
In the meantime, RZA's business ventures include two movies: martial arts film titled Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Phoenix, as well as another film, Iron Fist.
