Simpsons have their own adidas house party...

The original:


Boat/Deck Shoes

It seems that the big footwear fashion this year (I say this year but thinking about it loads of people were wearing last year too) is boat shoes! ''Often made of canvas or featuring a white sole. They have soft soles/heels to avoid marring or scratching a boat deck. The first boat shoe was invented in 1935 by Paul Sperry.'' What was originally worn by your dad or grandad is now all over catwalks and the highstreet. Last summer I bought a pair of Vans Zapto Del Barcos (Vans take on the boatshoe) but they fell apart on the first wear, same thing aparently happened to everyone else that had bought a pair. Luckily I picked up a pair of supermarket brand ones in France for about 10 euros when I was on holiday and they've lasted well!

The amount of entries on hypebeast just goes to show their growing popularity, with big names like Collete, Converse and even Billionaire Boys Club getting in on the action


Leeds & Reading

So this will be my 5th leeds festival and with this line up, probably the best. Highlights for me inlucde the one and only Ian Brown, Radiohead, Placebo & The Prodigy. Hopefully the rest of the line up with continue to please, in particular the dance tent! I'm dissapointed to see that Justice and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. probably aren't playing but there's still hope I guess. I saw them both at last years festival and they were incredible. Going mental and non-stop crowd surfing at Justice is something i'll never forget. Neither is chilling out on a grassy hill with a nice cold cider and the sun shining with my mates at Get Cape.

On a completely different note im currently listening to :

I love it when one man/woman bands use a loopstation to create a sound asif its being played by a bunch of people & it adds a whole new level to beatboxing.

''Armed only with a flute, a mandolin, a loopstation effects pedal and a microphone she's put together a showcase of several of her self-produced tracks into one compact little package.''

Inside all of us is a wild thing.

Having grown up with 'Where The Wild Things Are' I was keen to see it was going to be adapted into a film. From what i've read the storyline has somewhat strayed from the original but hopefully Spize Jonze will do a good job of showing the magic of the book, in the film.


Everybody's Talking, Nobody's Listening!

01. Intro
02. Low Blow
03. The TakeOver (feat. MC Dynamite)
04. Marmite
05. Riot Powder Intro (feat. Rod Azlan)
06. Riot Powder
07. Lon-Don City (feat. Uncle Sam)
08. The Terminator
09. Rat-A-Tat-Tat (feat. MC Dynamite)
10. Victoria's Secret (feat. D1)
11. I Beat My Robot
12. Disco Jaws

My god this album is huge, i'm not up for giving a full review but all anybody needs to know is that it's off the heeeezy! High lights for me are Victoria's Secret with some beautiful saxaphone in there & London City featuring some nice vocals from Uncle Sam. Caspa's done well in putting both chilled dubstep and some heavier stuff on the album. The only thing I'd change is the lack of vocals over Riot Power, it would have been better if he'd put Rod Azlan over the full track on not just the intro.

A heavy bassline is my kind of silence...

This tune is, quite frankly, bonkers!

Can see this being HUGE

Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone (Deadmau5 Remix)

I gotta admit, i'm not really a fan of the original of this tune - even though most people love it, but i am proper feeling this remix. It's out April 6th.

Alix Perez - Im Free

New banger from Alix Perez, with Kemo on the vocals.


Man Like Me

Wow, this beat is doing it right now, so perfect for this weather.
Such a perfect ode to the days gone by, 1999, the garage hayday!

This is my favourite tune of the year so far, easily!

Snoop Dogg Millionaire

I honestly don't know what to think of this, the exposure for dubstep surely can't do any harm but this song sounds so scrambled with the vocals double track over an already cluttered beat.

No Games

The tune that restored my faith in Dancehall finally gets a better video than the cheapo version from time ago.

Looks like they're gonna try push this record more, STOKED!


Wanna see what Kanye may look like when he's a grown folk? All you gotsta do is press play!

Maybe not the cream of urban tunage that we usually post, but watch this, you will laugh your tits off!

"They should know who we are..."

For all the 4x4 heads, references to just about every tune in this one

"Nobody told me the lion's roar could be done through a loudspeaker"

New niceness from Caspa, turns out the lion's roar can actually be done through a loudspeaker

I'm Not Alone

I've never been much of a Calvin Harris fan, but i can't lie and say I'm not feeling this, I don't care if it's pop.

Feeling the old school dancey vibbbeeeeeee.

Dirtee Stankin'

Dizzee Rascal & Newham Generals dropped into Westwoods show recently...

'Said my doggystyle technique's outstanding
did it in a coucil flat, on the landing
not ramping, leave 'em puffing & panting
...on a one night stand ting.
Just like Sharna, she didn't gimme no drama
after the show she was on my banana
after my seeds like a farmer
let 'em all out in her mouth, I'm a charmer'

Dizzee spits some of his best bars in a while still

'What i smoke is the highest
far from wet, it's the dryest
pure different man wanna buy this
i could make pure different man wanna try this.
Soon as i start my zoot in a rave
pure man wanna know where that guy is'

Can D Double E do any wrong? It's, It's, It's Dirteeee tee tee

'Know your position and play the roll
pay the fee or pay the toll
none of these roads are paved in gold
so you gotta work hard for the paper fold
before the day gets old
and before you get older
lose that chip on your shoulder
you don't wanna get found on the hard shoulder
some man are move bigger and bolder
and man are get wiser, older
and the time is colder
and the weather's older gonna get colder
so put on your winter jacket
it's grime, move them winter packets'

It's Footsie again...and again. He came a bit hit & miss imo.

She Rocking That Thing Like...

'Let me drop a jewel on ya, put a roc in air
Can I call you nana cos you got that rockin' chair'

Why does Fabolous looks like an idiot? I don't care if it's LV.

'Treat you like the first lady
I'll put my Barack in ya'

Why do i kinda like the Juelz verse?

I couldn't quote from Officer Rickys verse, it's shit
Why Rick Ross, just WHY?

'You know my tongue's got batteries in it
The bedroom, we lose calories in it and start families in it'

Why does Luda always come correct with guest appearences, then make boring ass albums?

Akon's new best friend, Sway, has only gone and dropped another video, for a song that isn't even on his album. Badman.

Tune's been about for a minute still, but it's nice to have a bit of a visual experience too, riiight?

I'm still laughing at the credits at the end of the video, large up 'Bus Driver George'. Apparently 'Batman' is Ghanaian too?


Sway said so!

Fear Remix

AKS smacks it, flow sounds big, plus read the text in the video carefully for jokes!


I can not wait for this Kid Bass & Sincere project to finally drop.
This beat is a monster, and is it just me that thinks Scorcher is sounding so hungry right now?
