Nike Dunk Lo Vintage

Having focused on other models over the past year, Nike is back once again revisiting their iconic basketball shoe, the Dunk this season. Taking the "vintage" look, which has been a recent feature on the Blazer, Nike has applied this to a a series of simple colourways that are reminiscent of the releases from a few years ago.

The collection will drop this Saturday (29th) in Japan at select retailers.

Murkage Cartel - Warm Up Riddims

In the run up to their forthcoming debut single "Play The Music Louder" which is out in Feb, The Murkage Cartel have released a bunch of heavy riddims and refixes for free download. If you haven't yet been to their "Murkage" club night, which is every Thursday in at South in Manchester, you're missing out. It's easily one of the best parties I've played at over the past couple of years...


BONUS! Target playing "Some Nexx Guy In The Jungle" mashup on BBC 1Xtra.

Get Darker TV - Tunnidge Interview (Video)

To coincide with his new release on Deep Medi, Darkside sits down with Dubstep producer Tunnidge to discuss how he got involved within the scene, future releases, his forthcoming art exhibition and lots more.

If you're unaware of who Tunnidge is, I highly recommend that you go check out his back catalogue; especially if you're a fan of weighty, sub heaver rollers.

Professor Green Feat. Klashnekoff, Wretch 32 & Malik "Jungle (Remix)"

Professor Green enlists the lyrical expertise of K-Lash-nek-off, Malik, and man of the moment Wretch 32 for a remix of "Jungle". The original version featured on my August 2010 Podcast, if you fancy checking that out.


On a side note, Wretch 32 has a new single out this week called "Traktor". It's dope, and I suggest you purchase it; especially the Mike Delinquent remix.

Crazy Snowboarding Trick (Video)

When I first saw this, I was majorly impressed... I've never been snowboarding, but have the utmost respect for people who can pull off moves such as the one in the video above (crazy, right?)...until I noticed it was fake...

Wondered how they made the video? See below.

Magnetic Man Feat. John Legend "Getting Nowhere" (Music Video)

When I first heard of this collaboration between Magnetic Man and John Legend, I was a little bit skeptical. Vocal tunes in Dubstep can be pretty hit and miss, and can end up sounding quite cheesy, but John Legend does this track justice. It's definitely one of those tunes to vibe to at home, or even use to close off DJ set.

Soulful stuff indeed.

Baby Milo Coin Bank

Even though some of their garments can still be a quite over the top in terms of design and colour scheme, BAPE always come correct with these quirky lifestyle items and household accessories.

Part of the Spring/Summer Collection for 2011, and now available at all Japanese BAPE stores, this Baby Milo coin bank stands 20cm high and is large enough to take a variety of coins. Whilst there is no doubt that it'll be expensive, it certainly makes a stylish replacement for your traditional piggy bank.

Any Given Monday - Episode 9 (Video)

3 Little Digs presents: "Any Given Monday" Episode 9 from 3 little digs on Vimeo.

Featuring DJ Green Lantern, J. Cole, Yelawolf, Big Sean, Donnis & Laws...

I'll admit, I hadn't heard of this series before, but from what I've seen from watching past episodes on Nah Right, this is a pretty good series!

In this episode, DJ Green Lantern uses the promise of a hot meal to trick J Cole, Yela Wolf, Big Sean, Donnis and Laws into listening to beats… Apparently he's managed to secure something, so we'll have to wait and see. I'm hoping for a Yelawolf x J Cole x Green Lantern collaboration. That would be ill...

SB.TV x Trapstar Cypher Feat. Skits, Nate, Ash Catch'em & Shadez The Misfit (Video)

SB.TV joins forces with London based clothing label Trapstar & DJ Motive to bring you a cypher from the likes of Skits, Nate, Ash Catch'em & Shadez the Misfit...

Make sure you visit the youtube page and vote for who you think spat the best verse. Nate killed it, in my opinion.

Tim & Barry TV: Dream McLean Freestyle & Interview (Video)

As mentioned in the interview, we are both working on a new project... Watch this space for more details.

Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf sign to Shady Records

So it's been confirmed that Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf (who was already signed to Interscope) have all signed to Shady Records. This is a massive look for everyone, and based on how dope "Session One" was, I can't wait to hear what Eminem & Yelawolf will be cooking up...

Hip Hop is looking even stronger in 2011.

Emalkay "Crusader" (Promo Video)

This is an absolute monster of a tune, which has been tearing down raves for the past few months. Backed with "Powertool" on the B-side, this is one solid release which I'm sure will stay in lots of DJ's record bags (read: CD wallets and laptops) for a long time. I'm really looking forward to hearing his forthcoming album!

Out now on Dub Police.

Pac Div "Your F*cking Song"

Brand new heat from Pac Div, who I rate highly. Word is the trio have a mixtape on the way called Mania!. If it's anything like "Don't Mention It", we'll be in for a treat.


Wiz Khalifa Feat. Snoop Dogg, Juicy J & T-Pain "Black And Yellow (G-Mix)" (Music VIdeo)

Seriously, what the fuck is T-Pain wearing on his face?

Sunday, 9 January 2011

Giggs Feat. Waka Flocka Flame "Gangsta Hop"

Both artists make certified street bangers. It was only right that they teamed up....

Taken from Giggs' forthcoming mixtape "Take Your Hats Off".

Mystro - UK 2010 Rap Up

I brought you the radio rip last week, along with Skillz' version. Here's the full track in all it's glory.


Big up Mystro!

Tazzle Feat. Macca, Dapz & Hypez "Talk Of The Town"

This is pretty dope. Taken from the mixtape 'Say No More', which is available from

This joint's produced by Teeza, who's been putting out consistent heat. Don't believe me? Check out his forthcoming "Bounce EP" preview below:

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark V 1/6th Scale Figure

Here's the latest addition to Hot Toys' Movie Masterpiece Series - the 1/6th scale Limited Edition Iron Man 2 Mark V Collectible Figure, which, if you remember from the film, was the portable suit that Tony Stark used in his first encounter against Whiplash.

The film character-accurate build sports LED-lighted eyes and arms, interchangeable hands, left arm and chest armor. It also comes with a suitcase and a LED light-up figure stand with a nameplate and the movie logo.

It's a shame Christmas has already been and gone, otherwise this would have been one of the top things on my list...

Elucid "Together" x "Pain Parade"

It's always good to hear US cats spit over Dubstep, and Elucid's one of the few I've heard who can do it well...

Taken from his forthcoming project Super Chocolate Black Simian (which is due out 11th January), this teaser sees him flip tracks from Breakage and Jamie Vex'd, showing off his lyrical skills...

XV Feat. CyHi Da Prynce, Vado & Erin Christine "All For Me"

Normally it's a quiet time of year for quality music, but we're already only three days into 2011 and there's a whole heap of good stuff to sift through...such as this track.


Produced by Omen & Audio BLK.

Curren$y "Return To The Winners Circle" (Mixtape)

Fresh for 2011, Curren$y ventures back into the mixtape game with the release of "Return To The Winner’s Circle", the follow up to 2008's "Welcome To The Winner’s Circle". This dude had one of the best Hip Hop albums of 2010 in my opinion, and this mixtape doesn't fail to disappoint. Cop it now.



01. Daze Of Thunder
02. Rain Delay
03. On…
04. Trophy Case
05. Empire Monopoly
06. Frost
07. Record Deals
08. Moon & Stars (Remix)

Pointer Connor Shoes

I don't really wear shoes anymore... In fact, I don't think I even own a pair shoes...However I might have to cop a pair of these!

Scheduled for a Spring 2011 release, these boots feature a moc toe finish, suede uppers with a two-tone colorway, white contrast stitching and a gum sole.

I think it's time I started dressing a little bit smarter...

Skillz & Mystro - 2010 Rap Ups

"I hear a lot of Rap-Ups getting made for real/uh, he's alright but he's not Skillz"

It's that time again! Rather than post it up for free download, show your support for Skillz and purchase it on iTunes

Some pretty good lines in this one as per usual, however it's Mystro's version which stands out for me.

Black Einstein smacked it with this beat...

Fused Forces "Cold Turkey EP"

I know I'm a bit late posting this, but here's some more free music that was liberated during the Christmas period from Fused Forces.

With a number of tunes on recent Get Darker and Ministry of Sound compilations, and an album in the pipeline, 2011 looks to be a very good year from the Romford-based duo. My choice cuts are "Molten Rock" and "Sabotage".



A. Molten Rock
B. Time Perception
C. Sabotage
D. Muggers and Murderers

Artwork by Jon "LuvHites" Batara.

Roc Marciano Feat. Sean Price "Snow" (Remix)

Big tune. Sean P never fails to disappoint...

Heartless Crew split up (Video)

The first quote of 2011: "Peace, love and pum pum..."

It's mad to think that after all those years of tearing down clubs, and putting out certified anthems such as "Heartless Theme", they'll be going their separate ways... All the best to Bushkin, Fonti & Mighty Moe.
