Miguel Jontel – All I Want Is You (Feat. J Cole)

I’m a massive late 90s R&B fan and sometimes a bit of a snob about it in a “they don’t make ’em like they used to” way. R&B and hip-hop that gets me these days is few and far between… Continue Reading →

Jai Paul – BTSTU

I’m about to say something big: This is my track of the year so far. (Well… I thought it was big) Jai Paul – BTSTU I don’t even know what genre the track fits into, if any – perhaps R&B,… Continue Reading →

Drake – Fancy (Ft. T.I. & Swizz Beatz)

Pulling it back to some hip-hop on a Sunday afternoon…this is a track from yet another Canadian artist, this time Toronto-born rapper, Drake. Drake – Fancy (Ft. T.I. & Swizz Beatz) [last.fm] To me, it sounds like a Jay-Z creation…along… Continue Reading →

The Summer playlist seems to be developing a hip-hop heavy slant so far this year – this one’s a track I found on the Tympanogram music blog a few weeks back. Murs – Better Than The Best The track samples… Continue Reading →

Chiddy Bang – Opposite of Adults

Mentioned these guys, this track even, in a post I’ve drafted but am still in two minds over whether to post or not – it goes against my ‘keep it positive’ (a.k.a. don’t slate stuff, just don’t mention it) mission…. Continue Reading →

Jay-Z – D.O.A. (Death of Auto-tune)

Surely this man needs no introduction whatsoever – aside from saying I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to dedicate a post to him. A modern-day legend in the hip-hop/rap space and co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, his tunes… Continue Reading →
