    New Wireless Festival Regulations Ban Artists From Swearing Or Wear Offensive Clothing

    Wireless Festival has been allowed to remain in London’s Finsbury Park, but artists will be asked not to swear or wear “offensive” clothes. Earlier this week it was announced in the media that the Haringey Council dismissed the The Friends of Finsbury Park group’s efforts to have the music festival’s license completely revoked. Live Nation instead received a set of conditions that would allow them to still have the festival in London only if artists “do not sing or play any vulgar, obscene or […]

    South London’s rapper and member of the Original Junction Boyz, Skeamer, steps in behind the Behind Bars microphone to drop a cold freestyle, a storytelling of situations he has experienced so far. Showcasing his flow on two different beats, he goes from a deep yet calm delivery to a more intense tempo, underlining the rawness of his message. Skeamer has definitely been consistent, having released three projects in the last 4 months. His remix to Gunna’s “Toast Up” passed 3 […]

    South London’s Lewisham and member of the Mucky Wolfpack grime collective, MC Maxta called in Boy Better Know veteran, JME, for what seems to be a grime classic – “Born On Your Own”. The song feels like a slight throwback to Maxta’s early days in the scene, bringing in a rapid-paced delivery on electronic, game console-styled beats.

    Octavian Comes Through with ‘Revenge’

    Octavian just dropped a wavey track entitled ‘Revenge’ taken from his highly anticipated mixtape ‘Spaceman’. The Essie Gang rapper brings a vibe as usual with his catchy sound – mixing rap and singing with his husky voice and layers of auto-tune – which we can’t get enough of. Although the track is under two minutes long, it packs a punch regardless. The double visuals are also on point – we see two separate videos alongside one another, one in New […]

    Wiley Is “Boasty” In New Project Featuring Mucky

    There is a reason why he is the Godfather as just before carnival, Wiley “flinged a ragga ridden” and put out a madness with new project “Boasty” featuring Mucky. Listen to it on Wiley’s Spotify. The beat is insanely contagious and I don’t know how one would contain from bussing moves on this one.
