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?
The legendary Idris Elba drops into the Dean Street Studios to help The Milk perform an extremely dope version of their track 'Picking Up The Pieces'. The recorded version of the track will feature on the group's forthcoming debut album 'Tales From The Thames Delta', which is set to be released on September 3rd.
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.
Liverpool-based Discoteca Poca is a predominantly Disco/House night, with previous guests including Dyed Soundorom, Tiger & Woods and Ivan Smagghe. This month The Shipping Forecast venue is currently preparing to welcome Crazy P lead singer Danielle Moore to perform a very rare solo DJ set, which is set to be a rather special night, with support coming from MrPaul & Michael Williams. Great music, all night - details after the jump.
'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.
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.
Although it's been floating around the internet for the past year since Solomun started to get behind it, Ben Pearce's 'What I Might Do' is still yet to be released, but shall be available soon on the brilliant Under The Shade. Genuinely one of the anthems of Summer 2012 from this extremely exciting Manchester-born talent.
Produced by SX and featuring the newly named Chip, here is the latest track to arrive from Wretch 32's forthcoming mixtape 'Wretchercise', which will be available as a free download on August 15th at midday. Wretch is far too good.
'I Don't Know' is the strongest track from Chorley-based singer/songwriter George Harris' debut EP 'Junior', which is set to be released August 31st on Hey Bert Records. If you're a fan of Alternative Rock/Folk, then this is for you - an incredibly strong debut from an independent artist, who has an abundance of talent. Keep up to date with George HERE.
