The Kemistry - Searching Live (Acoustic)

Sims - Bad Time Zoo (Doomtree)

Sims had a lot to live up to following on from his 'Lights Out' album dropped back in 05', and for any artists this is where the worry comes with the whole moving forward ish the next album has to be better it has to grow etc. But I'm not sure Sims had to have these worries, with his mad flows, nice lyrics and some of the nicest beats from fellow Doomtree artist Laserbeak. I think the conclusion was these two were born to make heavy hip hop without losing the content that an album needs to stand up as a classic.

Thick tracks, laced with some of the nicest production I've heard in a while and Sims smashing it on every rap with pure poetry. It will be a great shame if this doesn't get the same light as the other Doomtree solo albums; Dessa (A Badly Broken Code), Paper Tiger (Made like Us) and then Laserbeak (Legend Recognize Legend) all bringing their own uniqueness to the overall crews sound. Can't wait for a new crew project, but still these heads are ahead of the game and bring something fresh on solo ting to a scene which has sort of forgotten the music.

For an album out of the Doomtree camp that is pure hip hop you need to check this !

Mudmowth & Metabeats 'Sledgehammer Kisses'

Associated Minds are one of my favourite UK labels and probably the only one I check nowadays since everyone else has shut up shop, as mc's jump on house beats and hip hop producers fade into the weed smoke. Coming through in a scene that struggles to release professional music, AM always seem to be on top of their game from the music to the artwork.

It’s just utter bliss to bump 8 tracks of straight up hip hop. Mudmowth is ahead of the game in my opinion, the battle raps have sick little twists / concepts on em' , and he's one of the best when coming with that real life poetry, painting pictures in your mind style. Metabeats selects them nice samples, chops em' slickly and adds them nice live sounding drums. It’s all about that ish, when done with finesse ! It finishes with 'Concrete Buttercup' by far is one of my favourite tracks on this little album which is also one of two tunes co-produced by P.L.O who adds musical additions all through out the cd. Hopefully these two will be dropping another project sometime in the near future. If you wana listen to some raw arse music , with a non illiterate mc and a dirty samples beat strapper this will be right up your street !!

Oh yeah the feature: SonnyJim, Skamma and Richie Hayes all come nice and blend with the project with ease .

TPS Family - Freshly Dug

TPS Family are crew outta south London's Croydon, so I assumed this crew were gona be gash from the start ..

But I have to admit I was wrong, some killer tunes on the little cd.. Production is held up tight on the boombap front , but its got a modern twist in some places but doesn't go away from that raw nice sound, that heads are always addicted too when done properly .

The three main mc's all hold it down nice , sick flows and some straight up honest lyrics no gimmicks and no glamour just straight forward rapping with bare charisma . Also a seriously nice feature from one of my favourite mc's Hoyx who use to be one of the mc's from Dark Circle back in the days when Jazz Fudge where still running.

I don't usually rate ish but I'd say this is a good 7 outta of 10 , shame this crew is being a lil slept on in UK hip hop scene but people won't be sleeping forever.
