Sharky Major – Shark Attack EP Release!

March 23, 2010

It’s always nice to see your work ‘go live’ – this is no exception. Having been commissioned to photograph and design Sharky major’s new projects sometime last year, we wondered if our work would ever see the light of day! But, here it is – with full digital release.

Sharky Major – Shark Attack EP available from:

Amazon
7Digital
iTunes

Sharky Major, legendary Grime MC and one-time member of the notorious NASTY Crew is back with his banging new single ‘Shark Attack’, available digitally from March.

Produced by Skepta (Bad Boy) ‘Shark Attack’ signals an emphatic return to form for the East London MC, whose complex lyrical style first captured imaginations in the early Noughties and continues to influence Grime MC’s to this day.

A sophisticated string-led stomper, ‘Shark Attack’ showcases Sharky’s lyrical dexterity to the fullest, as he darts between rap and vocal harmonies with ease. Hard, yet dancable, this one is for the clubs and the cars!

With the original having received heavy rotation on Logan Sama’s Kiss radio show, the release also features an exclusive remix featuring Devlin, Ghetts, Dot Rotten and P-Money – arguably the Grime scenes’ fastest rising stars. This is a feat only MC’s of Sharky’s calibre can manage!

Big up Sharky, Logan, James and anybody else involved. Let’s hope Sharky’s mixtape ‘Major League’ follows soon!

Ghetts Vs Ghetto (P Money vs Ghetts)

February 13, 2010

WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY? SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT IM GOING TO SAY!

If you haven’t heard P Money and Ghetts going at each other over the past couple weeks, then you are very late, and frankly, missing out on some of the most exciting dubs to have been recorded in a while. Check Grime Daily or Grime Forum for the videos. I’ve no time for updates!

However, Today brings a very interesting development. Ghetts has released ‘Ghetto vs Ghetts’ – a 6 minute self-cuss marathon that has got the twittersphere hyping. Whilst I’m sure the P Money vs Ghetts outcome is far from decided yet, this latest development will surely make it very hard for P to retaliate.

See, Ghetts has done exactly what Eminem’s ‘Bunny Rabbit’ character did in the final round of the 8 Mile battle finale. In order to silence his opponent, Ghetts has effectively listed all the diss lines he’s accumulated throughout his career, leaving P little, if nothing to work with in round 2.

Those gold teeth, his inability to step out of Kano’s shadow, his seemingly sugar-induced hype levels – it’s all there, laid bare…

P’s gonna have to get his thinking cap on…

Wiley’s New Style

October 28, 2009

Without trying to sound like rebore Wu Tang, Wiley has fathered many lyrical and musical styles. However, his recent commercial successes, whilst broadening his rapping vocabulary (or narrowing it, depending on how you look at it), have caused a bit of a dry spell on the production front.

But now, it looks like he’s back to his button-bashing best. Over the past couple of months, a few Wiley productions have surfaced that have really caught my attention. Showcasing frenetic drum patterns, little or no melody and sharp interjections of vocal snippets, they contain a hint of the old school, whilst also being totally current and banging.

They are:


Wiley feat. The England 10 – She Likes To

The drums on this kill it. With two kicks battling against skittish hihats and percussive ‘Yelps!’ this is sure to smash it in the clubs. It’s big, brash and dramatic.


Wiley & Shifty vs. Ghetts & Devlin – 1,2,3, GO

This is oestensibly a rap battle track, fully updated and pumped full of adreniline for 2009. The drums are similar to She Likes To but the repeated ‘1,2,3’ refrain adds a nice lead into each verse.

The third example is Fumin’s ‘Out Of The Game’ featuring Wiley, Ice Kid, Jookie Mundo and Diesle, but I couldn’t find a video for it 😛 Sick new style for the Godfather, proving there’s plenty of life in him yet.
