    I was expecting to be torn to shreds for that list. One missing album isn't too bad. :)

    I like the lead Murs & Fashawn single, I think the album will be brilliant:

    New Klashnekoff album out today. Not really listened properly to it yet but a quick browse listen reveals slight meh-ness. Weak production.

    I don't really get how such great MCs can accept shit beats. Jehst is a prime example. Probably the best in the UK, and I would personally put him near the top globally. But from the 2nd album onwards the beats have been (mostly) a load of unlistenable shit

    Think it's quite important that Hip Hop has begun to shake it's prejudices recently not only with this Murs track from earlier in the year:


    But also B. Dolan calling out the culture in this:


    Both brilliant tunes in my opinion.

    Seriously tempted by that.

    Going to see B. Dolan and Sage Francis on Thursday in Reading. Still tickets, though I'm not sure they are your sort of thing if I'm honest.

    Actually that was a stupid question, Sub 89 is basically the only live music venue left. And I can't see them playing Yates' somehow

    I wouldn't know. The last gig I went to in Reading was De La Soul at Fez and that was a good 5 years ago.

    This is awesome too

    Basically 3 DJs have compiled the samples used in Paul's Boutique and created a mixtape from them.

    It's bloody great.

    What's this Talib Kweli mixtape about? I read about it yesterday but saw you slating it, Blaketown. A rap cover of REM does pretty 'interesting'.

    It's free so feel free to check it out.

    I thought it was rubbish though and that REM song was the icing on the shitchake.

    Odd, as Z-Trip is a great DJ and I was looking forward to the Attack The Block Skits (love that film).

    Paul's Boutique is probably the best album ever so I'll all over that.

    That DJ Woody mix I linked is some seriously clever shit. On a second listen I've spotted loads of clever little bits where he switches up drum loops that I didn't spot the first time. Really clever. It's like quotes within quotes. It's all classic tunes that everyone will know on the outside, but some serious stuff under the surface for the heads. One of the best mixes I've heard.

    He's brilliant.

    I have a mix by him & DJ Vadim called Lettuce Propelled Rockets and it is one of my favourite mixes ever. Listen to it all the time.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    New Coup material is BIG news in the Blaketown house



    Really excited about the album.

    Yeah, here too. Boots is one of my favourite MCs. And you know, obviously, Pam cuts a record like a surgeon cuts a tumour from a brain.

    Like that first track and really looking forward to the record. They've threatened some shows here, too, after being forced to cancel Bristol in April. Fingers crossed...

    Excitement for these two albums reaching critical levels...
