Blabz – One Side To Every Story (Noble Throne Media) @Blabz1 @ParkStreetPR

More dope UK Hip-Hop here, this time from Blabz, a name you should get to know. Hailing from the East Midlands, its quite refreshing to hear talent from outside the capital city for a change. This focussed sound conspirator has been making music since his teens being influenced from the vibrant UK & US Hip-Hop scene. ‘One Side To Every Story’ couldn’t be accused of lacking ambition as it draws on a diverse range of musical elements from boombap, trap, grime, hip-hop and more, and comfortably pushes well beyond Hip-Hop’s limited horizons. For generations it seems British artists have talked a good game, but now though on this evidence we have a player that can blast away into the limelight.

QuePac – The Flask

Brooklyn rap duo QuePac released their first official music video today for “The Flask” from the QuePac EP, which dropped in March. Directed by Borough Entertainment, the video is more a short film than a video, telling the story of a night of excessive drinking across several different parties, and also the events of the morning after, starting with waking up in an odd place with a pounding hangover.

The song is an ode to self-destruction. It also features an energetic verse by Shane MauX (of the acclaimed group, Duk Duk Goose), and artwork for the project features a portrait by Eat the Cake NYC (who has worked on photo/film projects with Rex Arrow, Mac Miller, Homeboy Sandman and others). While this is QuePac’s first music video, members of QuePac have been featured on Shade45, Kevin Nottingham, 8th hop outlets.

QuePac is a collaboration between long-time Brooklyn favorites Que Cee and Paco (from Duk Duk Goose). The team-up sprouted out of the vibrant Bushwick music scene, where some of the most innovative sounds in Brooklyn are emerging, and from which most of their inspiration for this project is drawn.

Independently, they have performed shows at major New York venues such as Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater, Public Assembly, Sullivan Hall, as well as at out of state venues and music festivals like Afro-Punk and StereoTerra.

Hipman Junky ‘On The Fence’ #Video #Single #Review @hipmanjunky @parkstreetpr

image2

Hipman Junky is a UK talent that is well worthy of your attention and he is back with his latest single ‘On The Fence’. Mixing up modern urban sounds this track reminds me of Rizzle Kicks without the cheesy bits, it got essence of The Streets and even Basement Jaxx with its sprinking of ragga… If originality is the key then Hipman has the key to the city!

Soloman Gehazi & Termite – Gehazimite @RemnantMuzic @ParkStreetPR

a1649288601_10

Time for some more uplifting boom bap from Wolverhampton’s Soloman Gehazi and London producer Termite. This thirteen track album features Rhyme Pad’s Stakka Lyrics, leading UK deejay and producer Jabba tha kut, label mate D7, Hot Roc from Lost Alliance and many more.

I love the balance of styles and music on here and I love the whole vibe throughout the project. The bars come thick and fast with killer punch-lines and the beats bang from start to finish. This is definitely one of our favourite UK releases of the month.

If you love quality Boom Bap with a positive vibe then this is for you folks!
