Wretch 32 - Time (Feat. Jayd Alexandra) (Prod. Knox Brown)

An hour before the mixtape is set to drop, Soul Culture bring us a new Wretch 32 track, which features Jayd Alexandraon vocals and is produced by Knox Brown. Wretch is once again on fine lyrical form and Jayd Alexandra reminds me of Erykah Badu, which is the biggest compliment I can pay to any female vocalist. Best track from the tape thus, looking forward to hearing the rest.

Clement Marfo & The Frontline - Us Against The World x All My Life

A clearly irate Clement Marfo took to his Twitter account earlier today to make his feelings felt about his label (Warner Music), the delayed release of his album and everything that he and The Frontline have been through over the past few years to get to this point. After making his feelings known, the rapper then tweeted a link to a ZIP folder called 'World War III', which includes 5 (unreleased) tracks from the band's forthcoming debut album. Keep up to date on Clement's Twitter HERE, and download the ZIP HERE. Quite an interesting move, but one that wasn't overly surprising after the things that have been said on Twitter over the past few weeks. What do you think of the whole situation?

Wez Saunders - The A Side

Set to be released August 21st on Hype Muzik, here is the new single from London-repping producer Wez Saunders. The B Side is a cool track with a sick vocal sample from Krome & Time's 'The Slammer', but it's the unique old skool sounding groove on The A Side that has my feet tapping and my mind getting lost in the music. Top release.

Macca - Where Would I Be (Feat. J1 & Pressure)

'Where Would I Be' is one of my favourite tracks from Macca's new mix CD 'Monster Mac', which is being used as a lyrical exercise before he gives the world his debut album and second double single, 'I Do Me (Prod. Swifta Beater)/Spaceship Anthem Pt. 2 (Prod. Teddy Music)'. Been impressed by everything Stay Fresh has brought to the table over the past 12 months, but Mac in particular has fast become one of my favourite lyricists in the UK. His diversity and effortless ability to ride any beat is refreshing. Get your copy HERE.

Liam Bailey - Please Love Me (Official Video)

Visuals for the new single from Liam Bailey, who shot into the spotlight after his feature on Chase & Status' hit single 'Blind Faith' last year. This reminds me of Michael Kiwanuka, but with Liam's own twist of modern R&B and crossover Soul, with a hint of Northern Soul for good measure. Big fan, pre-order HERE.
