Keri Hilson - Energy

Keri Hilson is fine. That is all…

Actually I must add that she deserves her shine on the solo tip after her numerous features and providing song writing heat for every one else.

Musiq Soulchild – Radio

Very different sounding song from Musiq Soulchild but always a pleasure to hear new music from him. A grower.

I love to play my bongos...

Donaeo. Devil in a Blue Dress. from Luke Van Boom on Vimeo.

There is so much funky house getting playlist love on 1xtra at the moment, which is only a good thing in my view and nice that it isn't just kept to the specialists shows. Devil In a Blue Dress by Donaeo has been around for a while and now has a video to accompany it. Won't be long until the big tunes by Wookie & Ny, Kyla and the Crazy Cousinz get the video treatment surely.

Hadouken, sonic boom...pure jokes...

Sneaky Sound System – Pictures

Been a round for a while but still can’t get this out of my head. Plenty of influences in this one and appeals to plenty.

Sam Sparro – 21st Century Life

One of the standouts from one of my favourite albums this year so far. We can all relate to the lyrics here.

Roll Deep feat Janee – Do Me Wrong

The vocals of the lovely Janee are all over this but Flowdan, Manga and new recruit J2K still make their input count on Roll Deep’s new tune. Perfect material for the club, or getting ready for the club with its feel good vibes.

Shapeshifters – Chime

Acid House is back!!!!!!!!!

Wookie feat Ny – Fallin Again

Wookie’s excellent Gallium gets a vocal from Ny and takes it to a new level. Now under the guise of Fallin Again, this track is doing a lot right now.

Jay-Z debuts Blueprint 3 and takes a swipe at Noel...

Published by Warren Dell under , , on Thursday, August 07, 2008
On the last night of the Glow in the Dark tour Kanye West announced that he is producing tracks for the Blueprint 3 and broke into a track with the chorus 'Jockin Jay-Z'. The man himself then hit the stage at Madison Square Garden and had something to say about Noel Gallagher and the down talking of his Glastonbury appearence by the Oasis man. He rapped "That bloke from Oasis said I couldn't play guitar/Somebody should have told him I'm a fuckin rock star". However despite the lines Jay-Z has stated that he wouldn't object to working with the Gallaghers, "Anyone...Oasis as well — it doesn't matter to me, I don't bear any grudge, it's all good." The Blueprint 3 could see a release as early as the winter and Swizz Beatz is another producer who has submitted tracks to the project.

See Jay-Z perform Blueprint 3 below.

Roots Manuva is flogging ice cream...

Published by Warren Dell under , , on Tuesday, August 05, 2008

Well, in his new video. I love it when Roots Manuva brings out a video. Not only is 'Witness' one of the greatest Hip-Hop tracks of all time (not UK, Hip-Hop period), but the video was pure jokes with Roots playing an athlete on Sports day. His new video sees him trying a new vocation working as an Ice Cream vendor. The single Buff Nuff is the first release from his new album out in August 'Slime & Reason'.
