The Making of Don't Hold Your Applause

The beauty of YouTube. I watched a Wale interview and forgot to close the video and went to watch Match Of The Day. After almost falling asleep (long day), I came back to my laptop and the Wale interview was still up. YouTube suggested a few related videos, I get to this one eventually. I find out my favourite intro to appear on an album in 2011 was supposed to be a on a mixtape released in 2010.

Tone P is a real talent. Listen to the finished product below.

When Will We Learn

The track comes from the homie Manny, who displays all sorts of versatility on this one. This chilled number was written, sung and produced by the South Londoner, who also plays guitar and bass. The distorted sound of the song works well with thought provoking lyrics. 'When Will We Learn' is the first solo offering by the 22 year old, consider yourselves all schooled.

Check out his SoundCloud and Twitter page for more material, I know I will be.

Blog out.

Lacoste L!VE x Breaks of 10- Selector Sessions Party

Last week at their Soho store, Lacoste L!VE threw a collaborative party with blog site, Breaks Of 10 showcasing some of the freshest and talented artists and DJ's in the London hip-hop scene. Last Japan and DJ Motive committed some crimes on the decks, playing the biggest tracks new and old, from this side of the pond and Stateside. The kid, ItsNate was the main performer on the night, the North Londoner doing no harm to his increasing buzz and rep as a talented wordsmith. Nate also invited TR Fernandez to join him, and the two peformed a new number, that had several heads knocking. Free 'juice' was supplied on the night by Koppaberg, and with many attendants in good spirits in the packed store, the night could definitely be seen as a success. 

Above is a video of the said event and yours truly can be seen towards the end of the video.
