Bink$ Win$ton ‘MANish’ #EP

When You Want To Hear The Truth, You Want Bink$ To Get In The Booth…

His name is Bink$ Win$ton – not “the other guy that be rappin’ with The D.I.M.E.” And his brand, Dolla Bill Entertainment, proudly presents “MANish”, his debut EP. Released on June 20 2013, “MANish” explodes with the truth, as seen through the eyes of Bink$. Consequently that truth is delivered in an unvarnished, rough edged crystal shot glass. Recorded with Grammy nominated engineer Jeremy Goody (Megasonic Sound), and mixed/mastered by Deagan Mack Adams (Ineffable Music), “MANish” is made beautiful in its design and simplicity – yet dangerously appealing as it lunges for your jugular. To any fan of good rap music, the “MANish” EP is agreeably “something to look forward to” (Lou Nutt, Murder Dog Magazine).

Despite the project’s provocative cover art, “MANish” reflects the arrogance and compassion of a not so conflicted man, whose disposition is being a native of the unforgiving streets of Oakland, California. Oakland’s truths are its mothers, its fathers, its city wide pride, blue collar mentality, pimps, homeless, its gangs and drugs, its hardened streets, as well as its green, rolling hills that constantly remind others both of where they are and where they will never reach. This is Oakland, “MANish”, and Bink$ Win$ton in all their contrasting glory.

Referred to as a “hip hop Phil Spector” (D. Scot Miller, East Bay Express), Bink$ Win$ton is the Executive Producer of this very fluid, entertaining EP. “MANish”, comprised of hard, melodic rhythms and heavy hearted bass is constructed with great care and deliberate precision. With guest appearances from The D.I.M.E., and original production from Bre$Ez, Bleszid, 8ight 5ive, and NastyFace, Bink$ skillfully offers a surreal vision to his listeners. From living your life out loud to being driven for success, “MANish” personalizes the experience on a level that is both relatable and tangible to listeners from every walk of life. While it is easy for men to feel Bink$ Win$ton, women alike can appreciate the honesty in his perspective and music.

To date Bink$’ music and videos can be found on over 100 hip hop sites/blogs worldwide – a google search would show that his material is not hard to find. And no stranger to the stage, he has opened for the likes of Slick Rick, San Quinn, Tash of Tha Alkoholiks, Iyaz, and K. Michelle to name a few. With that in mind, fans are encouraged to connect to him through social media and can expect promotional show dates throughout California through the fall and winter of 2013.

Swift Kirabo ‘Its Just Begun’ (Single)

SWIFTKIRABOITB500

Swift Kirabo is a Rap artist from the city of Manchester he’s been doing music seriously for 3 years and dabbles in any genre he feels like, but mainly works with Hip Hop/Grime. From early Swift gravitated towards music because he’s always had the feeling that it’s what he should be doing in life, music is something he’s truly passionate about and wants to improve on daily. He started out in school with Grime/Rap collectives developing his skills by taking part in cyphers with other MC’s in a highly competitive environment. As time passed Swift began to do more solo songs spreading them around his local area and then finally in early 2013 releasing his 1st free Mix-tape entitled ‘Daydreamer’ on ‘bandcamp’ which did well locally.

The inspiration for his music comes from real life scenarios that he or others have experienced as well as using his lyrical skills for a more creative/punchline approach. His main aim with music is to inspire, uplift, entertain and provoke thought amongst his listeners plus to one day have a worldwide audience who can appreciate what his music has to offer!

His Latest project is an EP titled ‘Heart of A SOULja’ which will be out early 2014, this song ‘It’s Just Begun’ is the introduction to his EP.

ALEXiS was introduced into music by his father who is a well respected Midland’s DJ and inspired by the works of lyrical Hip-Hop artists such as Nas, Talib Kweli and more. This talented Wolverhampton artist has been putting it down for years, reaching the finals of Urban Voice Competition, as well as radio play from BBC Introducing WM.

Since then he’s been playing live sharing stages with names such as Genesis Elijah, Ruthless, Supar Novar and more. Now due to drop his brand new release ‘Melody Of Life’ the future is looking promising and successful for this born entertainer.

NATURE THE KIDD from South London Nature is no new comer to the music game and was signed by Incentive Records/Ministry Of Sound at the tender age of fifteen with UK Garage collective Empire Squad.

Free EP: Nima Fadavi – More Bass

Nima Fadavi releases his “More Bass” EP. The bass heavy compilation featuring Berner, Roach Gigz Los Rakas and more, can most appropriately be described as “straight slap.” Everyone has those songs they put on when they want to flex their car system, and this EP is just that. Bass lovers will not be disappointed.

Catch Nima Fadavi DJing for Berner live on the “Under The Influence of Music Tour” this Summer with Wiz Khalifa, Asap Rocky, B.O.B., Trinidad James, and more.

72thesign – Sign Language EP @72thesign @ParkStreetPr

72thesign500

There’s a whole host of UK Hip-Hop that is really impressing me at the moment. It just seems the UK sound has really re-defined the Boom Bap sound. Here is an artist that impressed me with this brand new EP which includes some heavy collaborations as well as some killer solo tracks. He has an old skool type flow but what I like about 72thesign is the clarity and the positivity you can hear in the lyrics. Deeper than most and an artist with real substance I think this is something you should be up on. This is more quality home-grown hip-hop.

01 – The Blues Master Feat. Scrilla MC
02 – No Inbetween
03 – They Don’t Know
04 – Unclassified Feat. Yeddiyah Ben Sion (Verbal Godz)
05 – This Is Worth Dying
06 – Hip Hop Soilder Feat. Big Dutty Deeze
07 – No Inbetween remix
08 – Bonus Track – Broken Feat. Genie (480 Collective)

Notoriety ‘Well Rested’ (Produced by @GxWay) Review @NotorietyMusic @ParkStreetPR

Notoriety_Well_Rested_produced_Entirely_By_Gxway-front-large

The announcement of this EP got me excited and ever since it dropped I’ve been jamming it hard. Now the summer has finally kicked off in the UK I feel this release is something that Hip-Hop heads need to get up on. ‘Well Rested’ is produced entirely by GxWay who injects soul into his production with some amazing sax and vibes lines. This release is an absolute must for any Hip-Hop purist who loves the real original essence of our culture.

The other thing that needs to mentioning here is that it’s a FREE download too, so you can save your pennies on downloading this excellent collection of laid back jazz fused funk drenched rap. Notoriety aka Vydle Sinez & Incredible Chuck are so talented and one of the few consistent, quality acts out of America at the moment. This is real golden age inspired Hip-Hip with clarity. ‘Well Rested’ is ‘Well Recommended’.
