January in London is depressing. Big-time depressing. It gets light for 18 minutes a day, everyone’s broke and suicidal, there’s not even any decent telly on. No one even wants to brave the cold to head to their local disco and that's where they keep the booze and tunes. The Nextmen want to take away your lows with a little low-end boomp! And best of all you can enjoy this in your pants at home against the heat of your radiator, drinking wine from a box. Expect the hot hot heat of winter warmers from J Cole, Wretch 32, MJ Cole, Chase and Status, Breakage and Jess Mills, Congo Natty, Greenmoney, Floating Points and much, much more. Let's get through these dark days together. Spring is just round the corner my friend, let's bounce back from the brink!

Fashawn was the one to watch last year. He's a wicked rapper/skater from sunny C.A. Spits bars hard. After impressing listeners with a stream of mixtapes and his 2009 debut, Boy Meets World, Fashawn received mainstream recognition in 2010 thanks to XXL highlighting the MC as one of the year’s freshman to watch for. His awaited new album 'The Ecology' is due for release anytime soon. Manny Pacquiao, produced by Phonix, is the first drop from the abum and as a wise man told me 'It makes you wanna throw things around the room'... Blatant sample choice too. Love dat shit.
Enter Fiend / International Jones with his mixtape 'Tennis Shoes & Tuxedos'. This dude is the coolest cat. Rolls with Curren$y. The beats are ILL. I can imagine he lives on a yacht, drinks the finest juices and liquors, sports mink, diamonds everywhere, fillet mingion, orders people around all day and in return gives them loads of cash.... Rudeboy
We back now after a short break for xmas & new year and first up is the new Skyzoo & 9th Wonder Mixtape - Cloud 9. It comes after Skyzoo's last offering 'Speakers on Blast' which was a bbbbbanger!!
Typical 9th Wonder beats. Fresh rhymes. Smooth MPC flava. Cop the mixtape for your CD's, Tapes and Record playas..
