Ever since S-X – the 18 year old Wolverhampton producer – was catapulted to cult status following the release of “Woooo Riddim” (one of the biggest grime beats of all time), an entire genre has been anxious to see what the young prodigy has in store.
S-X describes his critically acclaimed productions as “S-X Music”, a sound of his own that he doesn’t want pigeon-holed… this has weaved throughout genres such as Hip-Hop for Chipmunk, bassline for Trilla and urban/pop for Encore. Due to initially being championed by the grime scene, and now working on everything from dance records with Roll Deep to trap records with Cash Money CEO Birdman, S-X thought it was only right to thank his initial supporters by making his 5,000 Followers EP strictly at 140bpm. While still being a sound of his own and incorporating an eclectic mix of influences, the “5,000 Followers EP” is a nod to the scene that gave the wonderkid his initial break.
Add to this Dizzee Rascal‘s long-awaited return to grime on D Double E‘s S-X produced “Bluku! Bluku!” single; despite S-X having his sites firmly set on the charts and working with some of the biggest names on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s clear to see that the young Wolverhampton native doesn’t need church bells to channel the sound of Bow.
While it’s still early days, all indicators seem to suggest that we’re witnessing the rise of who’s set to become the first ever global super-producer to emerge from the grime scene.
Look Out For:
S-X productions pending release with Birdman, Tinie Tempah, Roll Deep, Chipmunk, P Diddy, Lil Twist, Wretch 32, Skepta, Loick Essien, Alley Boy, Maxsta, Ruff Diamondz, Scorcher, Marvell and more

North Carolina rapper Caktuz drops his new long form video Still N The Hood: A Short Massacre with indie singer TreZure Empire. The gritty video was shot on location in New York and North Carolina, and includes a violently-disturbing montage of footage from a long lost race riot known as the “Greensboro Masacre.”
The Greensboro massacre occurred on November 3, 1979 in Greensboro, North Carolina. Five Anti-Klan protest marchers were shot and killed by members of the Ku Klux Klan and the American Nazi Party. Most of the armed confrontation was filmed by four local news camera crews.
Caktuz & TreZure remix an old Nina Simone classic “Feelin’ Good” over Method Man & mary J Blige’s “All I Need” while random shots of “the hood” wiz by in this fast pace 7 minute music video. Directed by Caktuz, the video can only be viewed at his website www.caktuztree.com or by clicking on the video link below.

“Lightning in a bottle”…Is the term that best describes North Carolina hip hop artist Caktuz [pronounced Cactus]. This country strange fruit has been tearing down stages and walls from NYC to the UK, pushing his infectious brand of music & art on to the world. A provactive performer and profound lyricist, Caktuz’s music is sometimes a surreal experience through stirring musical compositions and trunk rattling hip hop beats.
Caktuz has worked with such artists as Bilal, dead prez, Boot Camp Clik, SA-RA, The Dey, Brand Nubian, M.O.P., Young Guru, Michael K. Williams aka Omar from HBO’s Emmy Nominated The Wire and many more. He is a Carolina blues man by blood. His first album, (the critically acclaimed) 2 Hevi 4 Heaven, established Caktuz’s place in the industry as a musical and genre innovator. Creating his own ‘Carolina Bluez’ sound and weaving live performance art into his stage shows, set him apart from the rest.
The introduction of his controversial sophomore album, GOD*Z PORNO, in 2010 got the attention of not only naysayers but DJ’s, other notable artists, & industry movers & shakers whom co-sign on Caktuz’s potential to be the next provacative force to reckon with. In 2011, with a fanbase of over 450,000+ tuned in every week to Cak..?13′s Radio One web show ThatsWhatsUp! (www.theurbandaily.com) to see what the multi-talent was going to do next. A bonafide web star, Caktuz’s show held the top rated spot at The Urban Daily for 2yrs.
Cak..?13′s UK touring has opened the doors to the attentions of foreign icons such as Fusion (Fallacy & Fusion), Akala, Bashy, Noah Francis, and BBC DJ’s Charlie Sloth & Target. A witch’s brew of talent, in short, Caktuz is best described as lightning in a bottle, waiting to be let loose on the world.
London songwriter and rapper Baby Blue, whose name came about from sporting everything from clothing to contact lenses in the colour baby blue, has tastes that fuse the influences of Hip-Hop, Grime, R&B and Pop, to create a unique sound with crossover potential.
UK Superstar Estelle picked up on Blue’s talents from day one and flew her to New York to record tracks on her debut album “The 18th Day” including the “Hey Girl” track which featured Grammy award winner John Legend. NYC inspired Baby Blue to release her first mixtape, “Out of the Blue Vol 1”, which blew up in the UK underground and featured members of So Solid Crew, Shystie, Sway, and Akala.
She toured with Estelle for 4 months, taking in dates in the US and Europe where she gained experience and developed her skills as a songwriter. Later that year Blue worked with British legends Madness on their comeback single‘Sorry’.
Switch it up to summer 2011 and Baby Blue is back with a bang, currently working on her debut album featuring names like DJ Khalil & Davinche. 730 Promo are proud to present the official first video from the LP – “Play” – produced by UK favourite Donaeo…

Youngs Teflon started writing his first bars in his early teens and quickly took those talents from playgrounds and alleys, to studio sessions recording with NAA. After a partial gap from the scene from 2006 to 2008 enticed by the streets, the once rough diamond came back sharper than ever. Linking with the South London wizard Carns Hill creating a sound and formula that continues to amaze.
From the first Mixtape, Tef London, interest was stirred around these phantom beats and cryptic lyrics, and the streets responded, paving the way for further experimentation and the classic result of GMT-1. A Matured, classy mix of soul and Jazz and real lyrics it proved to be a slap in the face of mainstream rap and a blessing to all those in the know. Soon followed ‘Call of Duty’ and it was right back below underground, a tribute to the streets. With a delicate affinity for lyrics, and a relaxed, natural flow that has become the talk of the London underground scene, Tef has been cooking it up again, 2010 has seen the release of ‘Over The Head’ a lengthy collection of bangers and bars for days, refining a style yet to be considered.
