Sumo Records are pleased to announce the release of their most recent adventure in the hinterlands of bass music, On Diss. With dub-funk pioneers FatFinger back behind the controls and the vocal talents of Noodlez and the newest member of Team Sumo Hi Res on display, On Diss is a virtual smorgasbord of synth chops and vocal licks, heaving at the seams with squelches and squirts of raved up nonsense. On Diss will be available from all good online stores from 16.01.12

In the next month or so I’m gonna drop a FREE EP entitled ‘What Type Of Drug Is MYSTROGEN?’ as a consultation before the full course of ‘MYSTROGEN‘ is prescribed 2 u Mutha Luvaz next year feb/march.. I was hoping 2 drop the album this year but a few jugglinz beyond my control made it impossible 2 do without a decent push.
So 4 all the loyal Mutha Luvaz who’ve been showing NUFF love I figured this is probably the best way 4 me 2 say THANK YOU ALL 4 keeping a spitta motivated with all the comments & support, it means more than u could imagine.. believe that! Apologies 4 the wait & your patience is HIGHLY appreciated. I’ll keep u posted on the exact date so whether Twitfam or FacebookFam just keep an EYE out 4 the announcement on that. This track here’s gonna be featured on the consultation alongside four others & is something I originally demo’d over a Harry Love beat but the final version was recorded over a rendition by a Latin/Funk band i was also blessed 2 work with named Son Veneno. It’s a groove with that drunk funk feel that has u drawing 4 the LynxFace… More funk than an Orangutan’s armpit.. click the pic & enjoy….the LEAK. COME WE GO!
Mystro aka MysDiggi – Video
First video from Glastonbury, Somerset rapper/producer; Leaf Dog’s debut album.
‘From a Scarecrow’s Perspective’ will be released on Fliptrix’s Higher Focus label and features the likes of Diamond D, Rampage (Flipmode Squad), Fliptrix, Verb T, BVA MC (other half of Leaf’s ironically named duo ’3 amigos’), Kid Genius & Assa with production from Leaf Dog himself, Naive & Ghost Town.
Nardwuar, in my opinion, does some of the best, most interesting, funny, original-material-provoking interviews. My favorite probably being the N.E.R.D clip. Here are some of his best..
Nas, Jannelle Monae, Big K.R.I.T., Ice Cube, Tech N9ne, Marilyn Manson & Lil’ B are amongst his other ..interviewees.
PXLSNR (aka dj INSITE) and Beatnick Dee caught up with rapper Co$$ whilst in LA. He talks about his upcoming Tres Records (Blu/Shawn Jackson/People Under The Stairs) release “Before I Awoke” and a bit about himself as an artist.
part 2 coming soon…
Tyler, 19, and his LA-based crew are causing quite a stir to say the least. I don’t respect that they got famous from dissing 2dopeboyz but i do like how they are original and creative.. from being on the Jimmy Fallon show and getting love from Mos Def to Steve Rifkind being very public about wanting to sign them, they’re obviously on the right path.. they could be viewed as hipster, they could be viewed as having a younger following but lets be real these guys have got some pretty crazy *hit and they’ve blown up very, very fast. be sure to check out some of their other, weird videos on the Youtube..
20 million views and counting; need i say much? great video, especially the intro.. the track is produced by UK’s Alex Da Kid!

Here are the visuals for his track off ‘Jack of None‘ (click to listen/buy), which paint a brilliantly british picture as Byron reps for his town.

Speaking of which Byron’s working on something new..watch this space.

iTunes “Between Heaven and Hell” Review
Back in the late ’90s New York indie-rap heyday, the Arsonists were one of the most exciting and revered acts around, city-raised B-boys known for neck-breaking beats, razor-sharp lyricism, and explosive live shows. Q-Unique was one of their standout members, and though the group has been disbanded for many years, he continues to release quality music on his own. His second solo joint following 2004′s Vengeance Is Mine, Between Heaven and Hell finds him keeping it real to the utmost, refusing to concede to current trends by changing up his dense wordplay or ear for relentlessly rugged production. His storytelling verses tackle everything from pre-Giuliani NYC (“Crack Era”) to small-time robbery gone bad (“Mr. Lopez”), while getting a hand from co-conspirators such as Ill Bill, Slaine, plus Arsonists homies D Stroy, Freestyle and Jise. This is music for people who still like their hip-hop grimy, and preferred Times Square with more peep shows and less Applebee’s.
Nems sent through the new video off ‘Prezident’s Day’ with Iron Solomon and Vanguard..

Some shots taken at the filming…
-thanks to Ben for the images.
Tinie Tempah backstage with Dynamo at Manchester Academy!
“The video covers a bit of the gig (at 3:35 into the video), but mostly includes some eye popping street magic that has Tinie praising Dynamo as ‘the best magician in the world’. In the video, Dynamo performs tricks like:
-Having Tinie pull a metal chain through his neck (not for the faint-hearted, that one!) – 1:25
-Making a Panasonic TA1 camera appear inside a beer bottle – 2:10
-Removing Tinie’s sunglasses on his album cover through the CD’s hard plastic – 4:10
Dynamo is shooting these types of clips over the next few weeks with Panasonic and has already featured Sean Paul, the Sugababes, Keith Lemon, Rufus Hound and Dan Gold. I’ve put a little bit more info about the show below if you’re interested? This week’s episode coming out on Wednesday features rapper, Example at the unlikely celeb spot of Milkshake City in North Finchley. I’m happy to send that on as well when it goes live.”
- thanks to Melanie for sending this over.
New music from former Blind Alphabetz member Iron Braydz; the Golden Legacy.
Iron Braydz is an MC, lyricist and producer with more skills than tills to count bills.
Representing Harlesden, North West London, Iron Braydz has already collaborated and performed with many of his influences including M1 of Dead Prez, Public Enemy, Saigon, Immortal Technique and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan. On record or on stage he always brings an intensity driven by his immense passion and energy for hip hop which has seen him stand out amongst others in the UK to solidify his presence firmly within UK hip hop and now the US underground scene too after recording Hip Hop bangers with the likes of Guilty Simpson, Sean P, M1 of Dead Prez, Akir, Hasan Salaam, Sav Killz (Braydz and Sav are part of the movement, All Elements founded by DJ J Ronin) and many more with his unique style. “I’m hearing some DOPE home grown talent, cats be SLIPPIN in the states!” is what the legendary DJ Marley Marl said when he first heard Iron Braydz on 279′s Friday night flavours (Choice FM)
This rapper is never afraid to deal with politically controversial content in an intelligent and thought provoking way. Devil May Cry is his first ever solo project, featuring guest appearances from Hip Hop greats and close friends such as M9, Cyrus Malachi, Guilty Simpson, Sav Killz and many more. “Devil May Cry is on some straight gritty sounding Hardcore Hip Hop tip, I’m doing this for me and my A-alike, and who ever is down of course, I love Hip Hop, and this is a demostration of how deep our conversations can get”, says Braydz.
This project also features productions from (hiphop producer Legend) Lewis Parker, Chemo, IronBraydz also know by his producer alias IronChrome and up and comers Morph Beats and Propa.
“I am so impressed… so impressed I have to go now and listen to this shit again. This future classic makes me so proud to be British. Iron Braydz, Rago Magazine salutes and congratulates you for doing something good for Hip-Hop music.” 5/5 – Trickster, Rago Magazine
“If Poetic was still alive….and he heard your joint…I’d bet he’d say..ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhssssssshiiiiiiiiiit!!” – Gravediggaz
