April Fools Mix

In no way am I a DJ or producer, no way at all. But I thought, as I had a spare 30 minutes, that I’d do a little mix for the page. It’s done in one go, or ‘one take’ (hence the ending), and was done completely on my iPad, with each track having been purchased for real money off of iTunes, so there’s no real copyright shit to moan about (I think), anyway, try and enjoy it. Little rough around the edges, but the tracks chosen are fucking brilliant. Old, new, but all brilliant. Goes a little shit in the middle, but being honest, I like the beginning and end. Hope it’s alright.

As a sidenote, this is in celebration of reaching 15,000 views! So thank you very much, even if you hated what you read/listened/watched on my page, you count as a view, so thanks I guess. Love to you all… Enjoy this if at all possible, and even download it for free if you fancy:

Clement Marfo & The Frontline – ‘Mayhem’ Remixes Announced!

(via the amazing SB.TV)

Now, if you haven’t heard of Clement Marfo & The Frontline, where have you been recently? They’ve been gathering steam, even more since the release of their track, ‘Mayhem’ (ft. Kano) [Out fully on 12th March]…

and yesterday, the remixes for the single were announced:

1)    Mayhem ft Kano (Original)

2)    Mayhem (Doorly Remix)

3)    Mayhem ft Kano (Ishi Remix)

4)    Mayhem ft Kano (TRC Remix)

5)    Mayhem ft Kano (Eddie K & Minus Remix)

6)    Mayhem ft Kano (Smasher Remix)

(You can listen to the Smasher remix below already)

The ones that stand out for me, would have to be the Ishi, and Doorly remixes, but will any of them top the original? Never know – I just cannot wait to actually have a copy of this track!

Watch the official video for ‘Mayhem’ ft. Kano below:

Eric Turner ft. Lupe Fiasco and Tinie Tempah – Angels & Stars

And to make a hat-trick of Eric Turner posts… have a listen to this absolute beast of a track!

Eric has obviously worked with Tinie before, in ‘Written In The Stars’, and has also worked with Lupe before too, with the great track on his ‘Lasers’ album, ‘Break The Chain’ (which also featured Sway).

Eric has again, rightly stuck with iSHi for the production, and it pays off once again! All of these producers and artists have all worked together at some point, so each release from Eric’s upcoming mixtape feels like a proper family release, a real connection between the featured artists – which can only be a great thing!

Eric Turner ft. Kardinall Offishall, Wretch 32, Professor Green – Style Changer | Official Video

Newly released, here’s the official video to one of the biggest tracks so far this year – ‘Style Changer’.

The first release off Eric Turner’s upcoming solo EP – which will apart from these 3 other artists, Lupe Fiasco and Tinie Tempah!

Watch out for the drop of the EP!

Read my original post about the brilliant track here!

Eric Turner (Featuring Kardinall Offishall, Wretch 32, and Professor Green) – Style Changer. [Prod. iSHi]

I’ve waited to review this track for a few days now. Basically me not being able to operate Hulkshare meant I couldn’t actually put a copy of the track into the review to listen to – which I always try and do. So I had to wait ’till I’ve found a radio rip on YouTube, and now I found that radio rip (it’s at the end of this post). So here you go…

Oh, quickly see if you can guess which radio DJ’s show it was premiered on…

Mistajam’s. Like so many great tracks are now!

Eric Turner will predominately be known for his superb feature on Tinie’s ‘Written In The Stars’, but my favourite track I’ve heard him on, was his collaboration feature with Sway on Lupe Fiasco’s ‘Break The Chain’. To be fair, both were, and still are great tracks. But now we have something he can credit himself on. Eric Turner (Featuring Kardinall Offishall, Wretch 32, and Professor Green) – Style Changer.

This is the first track heard off of Eric Turner’s upcoming mixtape, and the production is courtesy of iSHI, who is also responsible for some other great production work, funnily enough, for each of the artists in this Eric Turner track. My two favourite album tracks from Wretch’s ‘Black And White’ album were produced by iSHi, ‘Sane’s The New Mad’, and ‘Don’t Be Afraid (ft. Delilah)’. iSHi has also notably produced ‘Game Over’ which in my view included Pro Green’s been ever verse (the Kerry Katona line gets me every time!). He also produced the ‘Break The Chain’ track I mentioned earlier, and helped produce ‘Read All About It’. Devlin’s ‘Brainwashed’, Example’s ‘Two Lives’, and 4 tracks off Tinie’s debut album (including Eric’s featured track, ‘Written In The Stars’) were all, also, done by iSHI! So, with a list like that, it’s no surprise that the production on this track is supreme!

Wretch’s verse is top, and so is Pro’s – I wouldn’t say their best feature track verses, however. My favourite feature verse from Wretch, was on the remix of ‘Hitz’. And I’ve already told you that I think Pro’s was in ‘Game Over’! But, those set very high standards, which will be very hard to top! So, I’m in no way saying they’re lacking here – and the fact you can hear them on the same track, along with the brilliant Kardinall Offishall and Eric Turner, is more than enough talent for me!

If this level of production and featured artists is kept throughout the upcoming mixtape, then we shall count ourselves lucky!
