Easy peeps. I've moved. I'm joining up with Brighton's Blackbelt Jonez and Tyni to host a new radio show on www.upfrontdance.net and in conjunction, have launched www.the273.com - which will be host to all manner of goodness in the coming months. So reset your bookmarks, head over and join the revolution. Peace.

Here's the new video from my boys in Sydney Australia, 1NF0. Jacob Giles and Nick Knowledge are two top lads who I had the pleasure of working with while I was on the other side of the world. Check this track out. Be warned though, the Lips 2 Da Floor style video has some serious 'wince' moments. I had been hoping I'd never see that kickboxer-getting-his-leg-snapped footgae ever again, but oh well... sometimes you gotta see what you gotta see...

New track from P. Some of you might know this beat as the sample has been used a couple of times (to my knowledge) beforehand, notably by Pacewon, and I think by Lootpack? Anyway, its an ILL loop - there was a time when every emcee in the UK scene would freestyle over this at some point in their live set - I recall Chester P from Taskforce killing it over this in particular. Anyway, the other P hits this in his usual indomitable style, with a couple of verses packed with quotables. Haven't got round to checking the LP that this is from just yet, but I'm gonna have to cop Mic Tyson in the very near future. So whether you're a Duck Down fan or not, hit that play button right now.
BONUS MATERIAL: Pacewon - I Declare War (check the small Eminem cameo in the intro).

Now I know nothing about this next video, or the performer, but spotted it in one of Stig's blog posts. (At least I think it was Stig - it may have been Syntax as they post as Stig & Syntax, but my money's on Stig). I'm never normally one for spoken word ish, or poetry, feeling that the majority of it is pretentious tosh, or just generally not very good. But I watched this clip from beginning to end, and its actually pretty damn great. Kate Tempest has an awesome way with words, lacing them together with effortless ease like a Foot Locker employee with the latest kicks. Anyway, whatever you think about poetry, check this out. Hopefully you'll be impressed in the same way I was.

As some of you might know, I've done a few tracks with TC aka Tom Caruana in the past. In fact, my last record Billy The Kid was produced by him. Well, right about now, my good friend seems to have hit some serious exposure. Taking a bunch of Wu-Tang acapellas, creating some insane beats using Beatles songs, or covers of Beatles songs, and throwing the whole lot together as one free downloadable release has seen my man going off the charts. Today alone, I've seen his link retweeted by Aussie artist Urthboy, and heard on the grapevine that even the farrrrkin NEW YORK TIMES wants a slice of Tommy's quotables. All I can say, is if one person deserves some recognition, TC is him. Tom has put some serious work in over the past few years, producing tracks for Wordsmith, Dr Syntax, Longusto and others, and getting those unofficial remixes going on at other times. Dude deserves his props. If you don't know about Caruana's beats, then what are you waiting for? I said earlier, its a FREE DOWNLOAD. F-R-E-E. That means if you're reading this, and you haven't gone and copped a copy yet, you better go and get that happening real quickly, or you're gonna miss this wave. Now here's the link. Clickedy click.
