downloaded this LP off the back of the above song.
you may like it and want to do the same, you may not.
LP is still a work in progress but to be honest I hadn’t used the UKHIPHOP category label for a while and was getting kind of restless. . . . .
It warranted a post on its own merits.
his name is Onoe Caponoe. And I don’t know if that is a play on words or a play on weed.
keeps me gritty while I spend my days with suits.
spent some time listening to the new Drake album recently.
& on the whole, I like it.
out-focused everyone else.
& even if you can’t be seen to/don’t dig every track, you’d at least have to admit it’s consistent.
it reminds me of when i was young, carefree and with too much time on my hands.
when listening to hip-hop meant you took on these real, deep and meaningful troubles.
usually brought to you via a chipmunk soul chorus.
like when the college drop out got right under my skin on the year 9 german trip.
not saying that I care whether Drake cries about x or y. but at the end of a day sitting boring my brains out on Microsoft Excel, its kind of nice to know that (at least in theory) it isn’t all nice at the top.
N.B. to follow me, you probably have to have had the same life journey.
slap your best friend music.
from The Abstract Eye a.k.a. Gifted & Blessed.
can’t believe it’s taken me near on 10 months to put a name to a sound.
deepest sounds you’ll hear this side of Christmas.
I can only ever reach Relay on Sundays.
but it never ceases to amaze me.
right up there behind my grandmas and my mother.
can’t ask for any more . . . .
go visit if your in London.
but just not on Sundays – I like my space.

influences + new bits.
(need to get rid of my new ‘+’ fetish)
get ready. get set. go.
