Top Ten September
1.L'il Wish - Pop Drop
Booty Bass from the Juke scene in Chicago. How many more US cities are going to come out with their own cracking localised Hip Hop scenes. Radioclit have just done 'Juke it' podcast. Go get it.
2. Kano ft. Vybz Cartel - Buss it up
Sweet bashment-grime collaboration produced by Don Corleon.
3.Issac DJ - Montagen Jiu jitsu
Crazy bit of baile funk rave off the new More Favela Booty Beats compilation.
4. Kelis & Nas - Blindfold ( redfoxx edit )
I don't know who he is but Redfoxx has warped this into a dirty rave housey electro tune. Sounds terrible but trust me its wicked. Like Hip-House never went away.
5. D4L -Laffy taffy ( Flosstradamus remix )
Same as above really but heavier on the grime.
6. Chamillionaire - Ridin' Dirty ( Benedict X remix )
7. Scattermish - I got the Bass mixtape.
Skillfully blended selection of all this new Hip Hop over electro rave shit that hasn't got a name yet.....erm..."Rave 'n' B".....maybe not.
8. Tito el Bambino - Caile
Baile morena was a tune but Tito can cross the latin-cheese-ballad line all too easily. On Caile he goes for a harder Daddy yankee style delivery and it works nicely. Big up the little man.
9. Tommy Guerro - Just ain't me
Sounds like a vintage bit of Shadow with some nice jazzy guitar.
10. Wolfpack ft. Too $hort & Mista FAB - Vans remix
Kings of hyphie and Young L make an unashamed advertising jingle. How can it be this good ?
