Public Enemy Takeover – Chuck D & DJ Lord (13/07/2015) by Soho Radio on Mixcloud

I’m only just starting to listen to it, but it’s BAAAAD y’all! This is some hype you can believe! So far it’s Chuck rappin over DJ Lord cutting James Brown jams – this makes me happy! 😀

Heads up for the brand new Man Plans God Laughs record that PE just dropped yesterday.

The Money Song – Stand Up & Be Recognised! (Pt. 2) – Out NOW! – FREE DOWNLOAD!

Today is apparently the last day that music in the UK will be released on a Monday. Additionally, the people of Greece voted yesterday against further IMF imposed austerity by a margin of 61% against.

To mark both these occasions – though obviously Greece is a much more pertinent event – I’m announcing the release of a fresh jam – part 2 of the Stand Up & Be Recognised! EP, here’s “The Money Song”!


 

Written after the banks broke in 2008, it’s an issue I feel strongly about and an attitude that angers me even more in today’s political climate.

You can grab a FREE COPY from Bandcamp – either as Pt. 2 on its own, or as a bonus track if you buy Pts. 1 & 2.

Share if you dig it! It’s a #SocialistParty, y’all!

Snoop Dogg – Peaches N Cream [Bush – 2015]


Snoopy’s back with a new offering, post 7 Days of Funk. (For those disparaging the Snoop Lion thang – yes, I know. But it seems he’s still switching personas, and he’s done that for years. See?)

Even though he seems more comfortable as Snoopzilla of late (is he actually Bootsy Collins’ nephew?), from what I’ve heard of the new record Bush – featuring production from The Neptunes – it’s confusing. Gap Band’s Charlie Wilson, sure – they’ve got history together, but what’s Stevie doing on California Roll?

But whatever – this cut’s Funky!

Prince – Baltimore (feat. Eryn Allen Kane) | New song for the Riots Benefit


Yesterday, I posted about the benefit His Royal Badness was hosting in Baltimore in tribute of the injustice suffered by the community over there, an mentioned the impending release of a new tune to mark the occasion. Here’s the song.

I have to say, even this is Prince on auto-pilot as he does these days (apparently, the track was written, performed and recorded in a burst of inspiration when he was alone in Paisley Park’s Studio A, and everything was transferred to Studio B the next day and mixed down), this track is pretty special. He manages to capture the weight of the situation whilst still keeping it nice and breezy. Really nice, uplifting track.

Of course, my heart goes out to the losses people have suffered. The Struggle Continues.

Stand Up & Be Recognised! EP (Pt. 1) OUT NOW!!!

Today is May Day – International Workers Day, and next week in the UK on May 7th we have a neck-and-neck bitterly fought Election coming up.

With that in mind, I urge people to STAND UP & BE RECOGNISED!


 

This song was written in outrage at the circumstances surrounding the result of the last election in 2010 – and things have since got worse! Share if you believe, share if you agree – share if you’re angry!

Available now from Bandcamp, and most major digital distributors imminently. Expect Pt. 2 of this EP in the next few weeks…
