Demob Happy – I Wanna Be A Hippy (Live Cover)

We missed 4/20 partly because it was Easter and partly because no one involved in this website cares about weed, but it would obviously have been appropriate to get this up on the day itself, and for that oversight, I apologise. Demob Happy recorded a …

Jester Jacobs’ ‘Please Download My Mixtape and Purchase My Album’ Mixtape

The increasingly high profile and hilarious Jester Jacobs dropped a mixtape called ‘Please Download My Mixtape and Purchase My Album’. I know no one’s supposed to like comedy rap, but Jester Jacobs and Dirt Nasty get a pass because every genre has its highlights. He …

PInts – Drink, Smoke, Gamble, Repeat

Remember when I nearly jizzed all over this website about Pints? They’ve been in the studio of late, and they made a song called Drink, Smoke, Gamble, Repeat, which, if we’re being honest with ourselves, isn’t a million miles away from their previous efforts in …

Mo Kolours – Little Brown Dog

Camberwell fun guy Mo Kolours got himself a dog and did a song about said dog. The song is lovely – all African-sounding and warm and that – but the video is fucking adorable, you should take it in, below. Mo belongs to a grand …

Skepta featuring JME – #ThatsNotMe

Following up the pretty fantastic Blacklisted mixtape, #ThatsNotMe (can we do something about grime’s embarrassing relationship with the hashtag? E-petitions have got to be good for something) features Skepta and JME complaining about consumerism over the top of an instrumental that could have arrived in a Delorean …
