Ralph Rip Shit & Stophe 'OCDC Vol I'

Ralph Rip Shit. Where does one start? His favourite emcee was Sean Price. He rhymes about sex a lot. Correction, he rhymes about his dick a lot. He shouts emcees into their socks. His imagination is out of control. He’s quite sensitive but he makes fun of the blind. He really doesn’t give a fuck.
After making his name as one half of The Breaknecks his ‘Best Name’ 12″ landed him onto the scene in a big way. Featuring production from the countries finest – Apollo, Benn Grymm, Secondson & Sam Rockwell and even a hidden bonus track from Metabeats it’s on some jam packed classic 12″ business. It had much love from heads and critics alike…
He's just upped a free album to the net , some really heavy nice laid back beats using some nice classic breaks and Ralph smashing the shit out of it like usual ..

777 - Interview

Ez all, thought its about time I started do some more ish on my blog then just posting up links to free shit . 777 just dropped his demo cd so I thought I'd see whats up with the Telford geezer!

Whats ya name ?? and where ya from ??

I'm 777 and I come from Telford in Shropshire (West Midlands). I've been rapping about 4 years and producing for two of those.

So your promoting your solo debut project, let us know some details ??
My first release is called Septimal Volume 1. I'm plugging it as a demo cd rather than an album as it is a collection of my best work to date and not a coherent, focussed album as such. The purpose here is to get heard and stop sitting on material! I've had great feedback so far so please cop it from all the usual digital haunts or on cd from my myspace/paypal!

So its dropping on Innit Records , how did you hook up with them ??

Well I've known Beit Nun (Innit Records owner) for a couple of years now. We've had mutual appreciation for each others music for a while and when he learned I was looking for a label to put out releases on, we went for it! It was a sensible progression for me to go through someone I trust and whom I know checks for my music out of preference rather than necessity. He's been fundamental in helping and encouraging me and also has many great connections musically.

Who’s handling the production on it??
Well I've got a three on the cd myself,a handfull by Wizard (LDBB), a couple from Milton Keynes producer Zaheer, Esyoube (Text Offenders), Baron Samedi, Redmaster and others....Some old Don called Bare Beats also made a remix for me, which rather bangs Sir haha!
Whats your thoughts on the scene & where its heading??
Hmm I could waffle about this for hours so I'll try and keep it concise! I think the Hip Hop scene in the UK is healthier than it's ever been right now. The latest releases that are filtering through now are of an extremely high standard and could be held up to represent proudly on a world scale. And the amazing thing is most of us work in offices and factories by day and still have the motivation to create great music completely off our own backs. That said I try not to think of it as a "scene" as such. I think it's a little naive to box yourself into this "I'm a rapper and these 1000 fans are my market" type attitude. That attitude (in my opinion) holds people back from trying other avenues and genres for exposure and thus ostricises the rest of the wold population as a potential market.
I see your dropping it digital as well, do you think the new digi world is starting to kill off the cd??
There's two sides to that really. I think legal downloads are a great thing as you can buy individual tracks rather than spending 12 quid on 11 tracks you don't like for the 1 you do! People are still shifting cd's as there will always be those (myself included) who love the entire artistic package that a cd offers. In that respect legal downloads sit nicely alongside cd's and bottom line, simply offer even more outlets! On the flipside of that, illegal downloads are not helping any of us...
What you got dropping next??
Crickey, how long have you got?! I'm one half of a duo called Amass Hegemony alongside label mate Beit Nun. We've just completed recording of a promo ep entitled "Red Raw" that will be free to all in a few weeks! This one is done in conjunction with Pez from Skrimshank and also featues Dan Bull and we're gonna use it to build hype for a fully pressed up ep later this year. I'm also deep into a further ep with Gouki Productions on the beats due for download 7/7/9. I'm also part of a collective called Unstable Fabulists and our ep is being mixed right now so stay tuned for that one! On a solo tip I will have an ep entitled 777: Bipolarity which will de dropping late this year on cd and digi download too. So I'm keeping proper busy!

Shouts & bulls**t?? Plus can you introduce this free download track !!!
Yeah man, shouts out to the boss man Beit Nun, fellow mic psycho Pez, Mr Dan Bull, Baron Samedi, Zaheer, Gouki, Redmaster and big Wizard. This last one is called Revelations, produced by Redmaster also featuring his awsome flow!Last track( Revelations)

Dan Bull 'Safe' - Album OUT NOW!!!

I heard Dan Bull a few years back and I was shocked then about how he mixed underground hip hop with a real pop indie feel . I thought in a few years he'd be on the radio smashing it up and maybe watering down his content to suit the pop market . But instead I get an e-mail saying my albums done, what do you think ? To be honest I was completely shocked , from the overall concept , sound and musical production it took me to another place . No watering down on subjects, and Dan's laid back flow and delivery still blended perfectly .

This is one release that the UK can't sleep on , check the links below about purchasing the album and the free mp3 download and my fellow bloggers reviews who can write 100 times better then me .

If you live in the UK, you can mail order the album on CD for £5 [free p&p] here:http://freshnut.co.uk/shop/

If you live outside the UK, you'll be able to mail order CD copies in the very near future from:http://www.cdbaby.com/.

You can also download the album for free in mp3 format [128 kbps] from:http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HMMBYOTZ

High quality digital downloads from sites such as iTunes, Amazon and Napster will be available soon. http://www.myspace.com/danbull

Lowkey - 'Dear Listener' LP E-Sampler & Mongrel Tracks


The best rapper you'll ever hear in your life Jon McClure (Reverend And The Makers)One of the best lyricists in the Western Hemisphere Benjamin ZephaniahHe's dope! One of the best rappers in the UK Ghostface Killah (Wu-Tang Clan)One of the most intelligent and sickest MCs DJ MK (Kiss FM + Roots Manuva's DJ)As a poet, playwright, political activist and award-winning rapper, Lowkey is one of the countrys most talented, diverse and promising artists.

Hailing from a bubbling homegrown hip-hop scene, Lowkey has successfully applied his artform to the world of indie music, without compromising the music he loves. His first official album, Dear Listener is an extremely honest and distinctly fresh project, laden with world class production from SCRAM JONES (MARIAH CAREY / G UNIT), STYALZ FUEGO (CHAMILLIONAIRE / BUSTA RHYMES), Q-TONES (LIL WAYNE) and more.

Keep your eyes peeled Lowkeys involvement in a supergroup band project named MONGREL. With Lowkey as the lead emcee, the band also includes members of the ARCTIC MONKEYS, BABYSHAMBLES and REVEREND AND THE MAKERS. This project will surely cement Lowkeys position as one of the countrys premier lyricists; do not sleep on his remarkable debut!
