For a pop troupe from Brooklyn, the bedazzling lights of just across the East River are perhaps all too obvious beacons to at least metaphorically grab at though with each recording they emit, NYC trio Little Daylight sound that bit more likely to go on to soar such great skyscraping heights soon enough. Name In Lights is their latest and as was the rambunctious stomp of Overdose , it's an irresistible pop pearler – the type to have you swooning along lyric by lyric; line by line even from a flustered first play. Born of a humid swelter, a [...]
One of my favourites, producer Matt Shadetek dropped his "The Empire Never Ended" album last week on Dutty Artz (cop it off iTunes here ). The solid release featured guests such as Riff Raff, Chan Dizzy, Nikko, DJ /Rupture, Troy Ave, Jahdan Blakkamoore and more and I've featured my fave tracks off the album below. Today Shadetek unleashed his remix of French Montana's 'Choppa Down' ft. Waka Flocka for free download available to grab after the jump:

Although hardly known for its refinement, grime's abrasive aesthetics couldn't have been better curated or represented in this instrumental collection from Big Dada. And the genre's ascent, implosion and new beginnings couldn't be better summed up than by the record label's blurb for the release . Everyone from Preditah, Footsie and Wiley are represented here and not a single MC in sight. May 6 sees the release.

It seems as if with every new song he previews from his upcoming debut album, Impersonator , Grimes producer Majical Cloudz grows as a solo, lead artist.

Impersonator is out May 21 on Matador. Read more articles like " mp3: Majical Cloudz - "Childhood's End" " [...]

Yes, I've been waiting for the moment to write about this! One of the largest albums that dropped last year actually came from Sweden's Max Peezay and dropped via a collaboration between All Out Dubstep and Peezay's own label Devrim. Old followers of this site know that I haven't exactly been on his cheerleading squad in the past, quite the opposite... But "F.A.S. 3", that aims on " Phase 3, or employment phase, the name of the last part of the job and development guarantee, labour market programs provided by the Swedish Government in July 2007 ", is well, perfect.

Dolly Doctor quiz time, GRRL PAL . 'W hat does your band name really say about you?' Bands who have a strong disposition for removing vowels in titles should be approached with relative to high caution. Most of the time. Grammatical farts are all the rage, y'know. If we're talking the symbolic clusterfck of the current music rainbow (△△△), then these guys should sound reasonably accessible. GRRL PAL are a new three piece from B̶r̶o̶o̶k̶l̶y̶n̶ Perth. Only 55 people vibing on these guys on Facebook right now. Babies, really. Digits like those don't [...]
The fact that the official video for this collaboration between Friction and Skream featured below only has around 3k views in over 14 days is baffling to me, 'Kingpin' is so good one could think it was the golden years of grime all over again. Not only does Riko Dan London city war lord do what he does best no, Scrufizzer pays homage to Crazy Titch with reusing Titch's old, and now almost legendary, " ... oldschool, rudeboy ruffneck soldier. Now I'm gettin older, heart is gettin colder "-bars from the 'Eyes on You' freestyle from "Lord of the Decks" [...]
