First post of the year and what better way to mark the occasion than with new music from Irish emcee Rejjie Snow. Inevitably drawing comparisons with Odd Future’s Tyler The Creator, Rejjie’s deep vocal tones and abstract rhymes will have you hooked. Give in to the jazzy piano sample and laid-back beats of Nights Over Georgia.
Masters of the sub-bass sound and rhythmic complexities, Hard to Say is a cut taken from Submotion Orchestra’s recently released 1968 EP.
Having been a producer for the likes of Just Jack and Lil Wayne, KR releases his own single. With it’s future garage stylings, She borrows a sample from the Laura Mvula song of the same name.
By no means new to the scene, No Bird Sing snuck into my life like a stealth bomber in the cover of night – completely under the radar. Signed to Sage Francis’ Strange Famous Records the three piece consists of MC Joe Horton, drummer/producer Graham O’Brien and guitarist/producer Robert Mulrennan.
Taken from the recently released third album Definitive Sickness, And War is a moody, drug ballad featuring haunting vocals from Molly Dean. After a few listens to the album, I can’t actually pinpoint what I love most about them, which is a good thing, believe me.
A couple of months ago saw the return of Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip with new album Repent Replenish Repeat. The duo have a knack of pushing the envelope when it comes to music and their latest record doesn’t buck the trend.
You Will See Me just happens to be a favourite here at SOS towers. The visuals see a slightly disturbed looking Pip confined to a small room, but before long, events go into reverse, whilst moving forward at the same time. Pip’s emotionally charged lyrical delivery and Dan’s progressive beats generate the energy for this massive single.
The single drops December 16 with a limited run of vinyl being made exclusively available at independent record stores.
With the release of a fresh new EP on the horizon, London producers/DJ duo Sigma serve up a taster of things to come. Rudeboy is a rollin’ drum & bass number featuring vocals from Doctor. Hit play for the goodness, but…er…..don’t think too hard about how the guy who saves the day suddenly remembers he knows martial arts.
The Rudeboy EP drops 15 December on 3Beat.
