SKITTLES: prE.P

Manchester MC, Skittles looks to build on his début album Two Pints of Brandy and a Packet of Skittles with his follow up effort Poor With £100 Trainers and has released this free EP to get the buzz going. His strength is painting a picture with words and that's why I think his style...

THE EVOLUTION OF THE RIDDIM (1999-2006)

You can’t seem to open a newspaper or watch the TV, without seeing an info-graphic at the moment. I recently came across this poster which I’m guessing was included with Tempa’s Roots of Dubstep Compilations.

Two scorching Summer joints for your ears! One to go cop, one for free. First up, Heartless Crew’s Mighty Moe links up with up Wiley for a grime pop club banger… Smasher on buttons. Then Fact have secured this Roska remix of Kyla’s (singer of Crazy Cousinz anthem Do You Mind) new single Don’t Play...
