Following his much publicised criticism of Radio 1's playlist policy at the end of last year it appears Dizzee Rascal has decided to plough a new musical direction and return to his Grime roots, hooking up with fellow MC Fekky and production duo Splurgeboys on a refix of the classic Boy In Da Corner track, 'Still Sittin’ Here'. And while thetrack might not represent completely original 'new' material, it's still the best Dizzee has sounded in years.

Following its radio premiere on Target this weekend, we're extremely happy to bring you the online premiere of 'Full Clip', a track taken from Mikill Pane's upcoming four-track EP, 'The Godfather'. Featuring the wonderful Jodie Abacus on chorus duties, Mr. Pane is lyrically flawless as ever, effortlessly riding a beat that The Neptunes would be happy to have in their back catalogue.

After more than 2 years since the release of his debut album Lonely Are The Brave, Irish singer-songwriter Maverick Sabre has at last returned with 'Breathe', the first track to be lifted from his, as of yet untitled, sophmore effort. Although those who caught his recent collaboration with Joey Bada$$ 'My Yout', put out late last year, will know Sabre hasn't been completely resting on his laurels, if anyone feared the Irish crooner's prolonged absense may have left him a little out of practice the incredible 'Breathe' will soon set them straight. Maverick - welcome back.
Ever since Michael Jackson released 'Thriller' music videos have represented an additional platform through which artists can put themselves out there. One artist who seems to understand that is Son of Kick, whose latest video, directed by Nicolas Andre, is memorable to say the least. Check out the full visuals to 'Hours' below. Not many artists can claim their music videos are as experimental as their music, Son of Kick can.
'Stealing My Older Brother's Tapes' might be the best EP title of all-time, and the music isn't too shabby either. Goldie, Underworld and Prodigy mixed with UK Rap - Context has created his own lane, and a whole new genre. Get your copy below, for free.
