New UK Hip Hop

There's been a fair few releases lately so thought we could use the one thread as a round-up on all.

Infinite Livez - Bush Meat is a bit hit-and-miss, but I think his charisma / personality manages to save even the weaker tracks.

Klashnekoff - The Sagas Of... seemed a little flat at first, but after a few listens it's starting to really click for me. No gimmicks, just a really solid record.

Any opinions on the new Mystro or Taskforce?

hmm... i havent been able to get a hold of that klash. been looking forward to it for some time. i dont like mystro. taskforce, ive seen the new one but once again i havent picked it up.

im still listening to the most recent jehst. kills it...

fdhdf, Saturday, 5 June 2004 02:25 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

the klashnekoff is ace, i had a couple of those 12"s but it's really tight, especially "it's murda", "all i got" and "our time". it's great to have a rapper who acts hard but still intelligent.

i picked up the new frontline and psychic phenomena 12"s today too, pretty good at first listen.

new taskforce - wish to reserve judgment as they normally grow on me rather (apart from the remus tracks, which i fall for fairly instantly)

fletcher dexter, Saturday, 5 June 2004 12:20 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

um, also, if they count as new, the salvo 12" is very promising - the production (by 184) is killer - and the homemade 12" from death by dishonour is quite cute / funny ("in da klubb" at least raises some smiles even if it's hardly a classic). the hoodz underground 12" ("how do you feel") is superb not least when klashnekoff's verse takes it to the next level. i like the new universal soldiers 12" too (life's like a movie) even though it's a little bit american-style and some of the lyrics seem slightly dunderheaded in that "thug" kinda way... and if you like deep bass and MASSIVE beats then the imam THUG / cappo vocals on the P Brothers 12" will probably do for you!

fletcher dexter, Saturday, 5 June 2004 12:25 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I really don't see what all the fuss about Klashnekoff is at all, "Murda" just seemed like a standard LowLife release with slightly shoutier lyrics. Admittedly, that track with him and Asha D ("The Message", I think it's called) is pretty swift.

The Mystro album is good, he's kind of like a less good version of Twang, but there's enough humour and wideboy antics to carry him through the album.

The Vinyl Dialect album is shit. "Ouch" is brilliant, but it sounds like that's the only decent tune they have (except they also have "Pre-Style", but that's not on the album for some reason).

Anyway, Blak Twang's coming to save us with a new album by the end of the year. Apparently its called "Rotton Club" and the single is "Ghetto Child Sex Education (GCSE)". Anyone heard it yet? Apparently he did some set for XFM or 1Xtra or some radio station I can't get.

The Format "A Right Earful" mixtape is nice, even if its barely English at all.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Saturday, 5 June 2004 12:27 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

"it's murda" is particularly good for annoying neighbours / visitors - tested it this morning.

i kind of don't listen to anything on lowlife as a rule, though if i'm missing out by doing so, i hope ilm will let me know!!

looking forward to the blak twang, tho every release is getting shoutier and more kind of wide-boy - if you compare "real estate" with "kik off" or his black grass collab (admittedly both ace) he does seem to have a lost a bit of the original thoughtfulness ?

fletcher dexter, Saturday, 5 June 2004 12:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Are they rereleasing "Dettwork South East" or not? I think they said they were at the rear end of last year, I've not seen it in the shops or any follow-up.

I think he's definitely "developed" his personality. I actually think "Publik Order" is the best thing he's ever done, so I'm probably not the best person to criticise his new hoolie stylings. It was inevitable that that was going to be the mode of living that British rappers would adopt when they were going "thug", though, so... hey, at least it's not Acarine.

Are Aspects going to stop touring minor towns and actually release something? Aren't they signed to Antidote now as well, or does the Antidote webpage just have lots of stuff on them for no reason?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Saturday, 5 June 2004 12:35 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

supplemental re blak twang: i like "publik order" too - but then i have a similar weak spot for sham 69, who it reminds me of... i too heard that "dettwork" was definitely coming out, but still haven't seen it, or the alleged BT dvd. i'm sure someone here will know.

fletcher dexter, Saturday, 5 June 2004 12:38 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Sham 69 was the first thing I thought of when I heard "Publik Order" as well.

speaking of uk hip hop, the one essential record is the brotherhood record (prod. by trevor jackson). in a number of places, i've seen the bragadocious quote that the entire album was sampled from uk based music sources. but wasn't there a gravediggaz 'constant elevation' sample from one of the singles? regardless, that shit bounces like bucephelus.

pher (pher), Sunday, 6 June 2004 09:10 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

aspects album is indeed coming out on Antidote soon.
tis called 'mystery theatre'.
not heard it yet. will report back tomorrow on what i think.

i liked the mystro in parts. the humour was fun, loved the love and the reference to beers/booze as opposed to drive bys and e's all the time. was refreshing change.

infinte lives i still aint too sure about, its growing on me though. the most off the wall lyrics ever though.

then there is akira the don - stuff available from akirathedon.com, i like his stuff.

back tomorrow re Aspects.

I'm pretty taken with Scorsayzee's "Great Britain" I like it even more since I read this interview:

What made you convert to Islam?

It's called revert, as we believe everyone is a Muslim naturally.

I'm glad someone mentioned that record, there seems to be no info whatsoever about it on the InterWeb. It does sample the Gravediggaz, and it's a nice record, though in no way special. Just straight-ahead, non-stop rapping and athmospheric beats, kinda like the British equivalent of Heltah Skeltah/Boot Camp Click. Whatever happened to The Brotherhood?

Tuomas (Tuomas), Monday, 7 June 2004 08:55 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

The last I heard of them was in the late '90s, they put out a decent single called "Dungeon Town". Then, no more. Calling their LP the one essential UKHH LP is a bit much, I think.

Tim (Tim), Monday, 7 June 2004 09:59 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

re Aspects : tis a good album. not as england-centric, or is that eccentric, as infinite lives/kid acne etc though there are local references in the sample-laden grooves.the collab with The Bees 'off the lip', is of particular fun .. surf-esque harmonies and wordplay make fine bed fellows. if you want more details i have posted the PR gubbins @ the usual place. but i am liking this stuff, doesn't break boundaries, but if you like old school loops, a chunk of human beatbox sets (not a fave style of mine), mixed with a splash of soul and reggae samples etc then this will bring a smile to most peoples faces.

mark e (mark e), Monday, 7 June 2004 13:12 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

When's it out on the shelves? I can't help but think if "My Genre" were released today in the current climate it'd probably go top 40.

I don't like the new Aspects anywhere near as much as the last one, I have to say.

'Pup 2' by Lews Tewns (guy out of the Headcase Ladz, if that helps) from Swansea is out now on Rasp/Wonky Wax. It's pretty ace

interesting mr mencap. not heard the earlier stuff. will track down.

mark e (mark e), Monday, 7 June 2004 14:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I quite like Lews Tunes.

Is it unfashionable to say that I'm still really, really looking forward to Skinnyman's LP (the sampler Lowlife put out last year was amazing, I thught) and also Rodney P's record?

Pleased to see that people really like Blak Twang here, even though I don't rate him that highly (I think Mystro's a better MC, though I haven't bought the new record yet).

I recently caught up with the Foregn Beggars LP, which is pretty darned good but about 5 or 6 songs too long.

Tim (Tim), Monday, 7 June 2004 14:43 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Is that Rodney P album finally coming out then, a mere year after it was originally meant to? There's a single on upcoming release lists, so...

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Monday, 7 June 2004 15:01 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I'll tell you what I am looking forward to, though: Yoda's going to be doing an artist album by the end of the year. That will either be the best thing ever, or total shite. I'm hoping for the former.

-- Dom Passantino (lifetimepilingu...), June 7th, 2004.

Is the single from the delayed Rodney P album or something new? He's playing here on the weekend so I might get a chance to ask him bout it.

Listening to the last Kid Acne album, he seemed like a bit of novelty act to me. He's actually taken seriously over there then?

Am keen to hear new Skinnyman. Roots Manuva too (although less enthusiastic about him nowadays), I noticed there was no new tracks on that Big Dada sampler...

Mil, Tuesday, 8 June 2004 11:51 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I have a feeling that Mr. Manuva may not be on Big Dada for his next LP, but I can't remember why I have that feeling. Maybe Etienne / Tron will arrive and let us know.

Tim (Tim), Tuesday, 8 June 2004 11:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I think I remember hearing something about Manuva leaving Big Dada around... last October?

I keep meaning to get the Kid Acne album, but never bother in the end. He seems like a pretty funny guy from interviews, but is the fullplayer not worth it?

I actually having the feeling the new Manuva is going to be hideously "worthy", which would be a big change. Riddla needs to be on at least three tracks or I'll be upset.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Tuesday, 8 June 2004 12:00 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I wouldn't bother with the Kid Acne, not much replay value I wouldn't think.

Anyone know much about Est'elle? That '1980' track is quite nice.

Mil, Tuesday, 8 June 2004 12:19 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Est'elle's great, I think, and probably with the most actual real star potential in UKHH at present. She's kind of part of the Sterling Collat bunch as far as I can tell, and she can really sing and really rap, also she looks nice which never seems to do much harm. They put out mix CDs now and again and the one I have is full of great stuff. Her take on "Uptown Top Ranking" was of course brilliant but that rhythm is apparently unruinable.

Also Est'elle matches Tempa on "Domestic Science" which is something not many manage.

Dom I bought the Kid Acne LP for £5, which was too much.

Tim (Tim), Tuesday, 8 June 2004 12:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

damn. not much love for the Kid. i liked Council Pop. oh well each to their own. give me Kids style over the Streets anyday, and i have to say that Infinite Lives is seriously growing on me... weirdly enough.

mark e (mark e), Tuesday, 8 June 2004 13:21 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I think it was the issue before that (that would have been the Illmatic tenth anniversary one). I can't remember the exact wording, but it was a joke to the extent of "Your album is an assault on deceny, full of toilet humour and subject matter that borders on the inane" "But that's a Pitman CD".

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Tuesday, 8 June 2004 13:37 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

est'elle is truly grebt. "excuse me" produced by fusion is gorge. shame the lmhr festival got canned as i was lkg fwd to seeing her (and klash).

ocp: agree that scorzayzee's tune is much more than just daily tel-bait. someone shld release it as a single.

btw props to mark e as that website is the best. loved the more fire review from back then.

I've just bought "The Sagas of K-lash-nek-off". He really does only have one song.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 5 August 2004 21:12 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Also: "1980" is the best British hip-hop single since "Witness (One Hope)". Discuss.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 5 August 2004 21:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

possibly agree on "1980" though "i'll be surprised" which came out the same day is the best thing i've ever heard on lowlife and i think could have withstood some airplay.

you are wrong re klashnekoff, at least to the extent i'm interpreting yr post as a criticism. i'm even looking forward to the forthcoming universal soldiers lp.

fletcher dexter, Thursday, 5 August 2004 21:56 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

At the moment, I only *get* "It's Murda", the rest just sounds like your standard UK hip-hop fare. Those of you that reckon the album grows... is that what I'm doing wrong? Does the album blossom around "It's Murda"? And what's his problem with Tina Turner?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 5 August 2004 22:02 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

...not sure but it's nothing like as bad as his problem with paul condon.

"it's murda" i think is one of 3 or 4 standout tracks. i suppose the thing about "sagas" is that it's a comp, really, of a few 12"s, not a properly sequenced album, and it may just be that the songs sounded better on one side of vinyl - if you're new to all of them they probably do blur a little.

fwiw, he also seems to flip between "conscious" lyrics and really unreconstructed stuff. the last universal soldiers 12" he did with ultra is odd - a lot less ragga-ish, it's dark and quite grimy though i like it it's unrealistically thug-like.

fletcher dexter, Thursday, 5 August 2004 22:20 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I will say that "the Black Russian" is easily my favourite nickname for an MC ever.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 5 August 2004 22:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I think the Klashnekoff is extremely consistent, I wouldn't say any track sounds well-above the quality of others. The similiar tone / pacing throughout the album only makes me scrutinise each track more. fletcher otm about the 'acts hard but still intelligent' thing.

Still like '1980', but I find it a little too clean (verging on sterile) sounding to really develop a huge attachment too. Though it is the only UKHH track I've heard in ages with any solid commercial potential (already getting airplay here in Australia).

Mil (Mil), Thursday, 5 August 2004 23:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

kalashnekoff is obviously the best thing to happen in uk hiphop for ages. it's getting itself together now. uk hiphop gets lots of pirate play now, it never used to, outside of itch. new people coming through like esquire. i want to hear that song with wiley and skinnyman.

OK then, "Council Estate of Mind" has been out for nearly a fortnight, my review shall be finding it's way onto Stylus in the near future, discuss it here.

"Fuck The Hook" really does need that end 30 seconds removing from it.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 19 August 2004 13:35 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

new issue of hip hop connection is all UK hip hop based with a pretty cool covermount cd with all uk beats on it. not bad. and the kid acne artwork makes it all worth while n my opinion .. (kid acne comp @ ireallylovemusic .. shameless i know .. but hey ..)
and the best track on the cd for me is 'black rose' by klashnekoff. very very good.

mark e (mark e), Thursday, 19 August 2004 13:46 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

What did you think to the top 100 UK hip-hop tracks then? Seemed to be all the right tracks in slightly the wrong order. "Domestic Science" was far far too low.

it's time for the weekly bump of this thread, which at least proves that ukgrime has rather more adherents here than ukhh...

"slanguage" by universal soldiers is a good purchase on initial listen, although it isn't remotely groundbreaking - makes most sense on the headphones whilst wandering around london now it's colder and darker again. will take a few listens to see if it has the same kind of lyrical invention which only became apparent slowly on the various taster singles.

re the cappo / ramsay record, the track by mr 45 is also really well put together - it's called "freedom".
