Lagos Lullabye is Siji’s first single off his album Homegrown. I just got word from him that the video is out. In his own words: I’d always loved Scorsese’s Taxi Driver particularly the scene in which the protagonist, Travis Bickle drives his cab around the mean and seedy streets of New York city’s Times Square. Taking a cue from this timeless classic, I sought to take in and showcase the […]
“If French Montana could flow in Pidgin” he would be Stanley Enow. After smashing the charts with Hein Père, the Cameroonian rapper returns with Toumbou Boss (Deluxe). In the video it is spelt Toumbou Boss but the Youtube title is TumbuBoss (Deluxe). Anyhow, both Toumbou Boss Deluxe and Hein Père were directed by Shamak Allharamaji and by the looks of it, people love the song and its video in equal […]
Dutch group Cut_ has done a minimalist and more sombre English rendition of Stromae’s Papaoutai. Stromae himself posted their remake on his Facebook page with a smiley face and that we interpret as a thumbs-up. Cut_ are a live-electro or electro-live duo based in Amsterdam whose songs are “inspired by the moment”. The music nerds combine live performance (with much visual elements) and electro sounds. Sebastiaan Dutilh is the producer […]
By this account from the Guardian, the world is ready to receive Kwabs on stage, after being repeatedly bowled over by the mixtape, EP and songs we’ve heard, mostly produced by Venice-based producer SOHN, his usual partner in soulful devastation. Their latest pairing makes one feel like apocalypse is at hand and the only refuge is Kwabs’ towering baritone as a fortress. Save us!
Loyal as ever to the golden era that shaped him, my fave MNEK hovers around the 90s on this almost-single with production inspired by Teddy Riley and Rodney Jerkins. He wrote it while on tour with Rudimental, and premiered it on BBC 1Xtra on Mista Jam’s show. It’s another assured stride enroute to the album from the Virgin/EMI signee on whose every word I have been hanging since his early […]

Musically, Maraire’s repertoire has broadened while he continues to juggle multiple collaborative situations. On a more personal note, Tendai’s sister, renowned Zimbabwean Mbira music champion Chiwoniso died last July in Zimbabwe. (South African rapper Tumi and Nigerian singer Bez For more and […]
Sounds like: A man as much at home with Pac Div as he is with Tupac. The low-down: Well$’ tumultuous teen life brought on his concerned mother’s decision to ship him off to New Orleans to stay with his older cousin, one Alec Lomami in the hope that he could steer him back on to the straight and narrow. Lomami successfully averted Well$’ focus to music as a means of […]

When life hands you dramatic episodes with ex-lovers, you do what James King of the GTW crew did and write dope songs about them.

Inspired by the antics of a former flame who King says dragged his clothes through a […]
