It’s been a while since our last “New Music…” post but tonight we’re back with a bang with a selection of the finest music we’ve been listening to over the past few weeks. If you’ve got any music you think we’d dig, be sure to get in touch (email, Twitter, Facebook or the FKOF TakesQuestions page).
We’ve admittedly been a bit slow on this one, but we’re more than stoked to welcome one of the finest British MCs back to the game. The Daily Street’s Grizzle Emcee might not be widely known as an MC, but as his latest track “All I Need Is…” shows, Grizz ain’t afraid of getting naked in a bathtub of teabags and spitting some sick bars. It’s also 110% refreshing to see an artist with a sense of humour. Good to have you back bro – can’t wait for your future material!
It’s been a while since our boy Blynk got a mention here on FKOF. Sam’s just dropped a new track for free (which you can grab by clicking here) “as a thank you for all the support I’ve been getting over the past few months”. Get on the download and if you like the track, holla Blynk on Facebook or Twitter and let him know!
KANEDUBSTEP first featured on FKOF way back in December 2010. He’s just launched a new EP full of his trademark bangers – “The Astroid EP” is three tracks full of massive basslines that are definitely in need of being played on a big system to be fully enjoyed. Grab your copy of the EP from Bandcamp and be sure to check our favourite track; “Be Brave”.
We’ve only just discovered Action Bronson, but after rinsing his debut album over the weekend he’s already become one of our favourite hip-hop artists. Hailing from Queens, NYC, we’re pretty sure Action is set to blow up and become a huge name in the somewhat busy hip-hop scene. Get involved and grab his debut album, “Dr. Lecter” from his website now!
We first featured FergyFerg back in April and we’re pleased to welcome him back to FKOF with his huge new track “Exams Are Over”. There’s not much that needs to be said – grab the free download and start abusing your speakers!
We recently spotted this awesome video from Jacksonville’s Galvanized Tron. “You Nasty” is from GT’s amazing debut 2010 album which is available from the US iTunes store (if we find a UK link we’ll let you know). If you’re feeling “You Nasty” keep locked on GT’s Facebook and Twitter accounts as he releases info on his next album, due Spring 2012. Dope tings!
We’ll end this week’s “New Music…” on a perfect chill note, with the latest track from The Weeknd. Hot off the understandable success of his debut mixtape, “House of Balloons“, the Toronto-based producer is still pulling out the stops to release another amazing track. Truly astounding talent.
Peace, love and respect.
