So much so that edible goodness is spilling over the sides, next to the next mans Pepperami, packet of Skips and a banana. Hard to find wax probably cos they've been snapped up and chewed on by anyone who knows the deal. In particular check for tracks like 'Dedication'- Rodney P absolutely tears foot wide gashes out Skitz brilliant melody. When that dropped it was getting a massive amount of plays. Also tracks like 'Are You On It' and 'Vocal Workout'. It's got all the big boys (and girls) on it this and it's definately not to be sleapt on if you don't know. Or MP3d if you're lucky enough to cherish the black stuff.

    Braintax - Run The Yards / Last Tenner - 2006

    New album from one of the busiest guys up here. So this'll be a nice sneak at whats on the way. If you havn't got Biro Funk you must be crazy :

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

  • Read about Biro Funk here

  • Buy Biro Funk here

  • As the label approaches its 50th release with artists such as Skinnyman, Jehst, Taxforce, Verb T & Harry Love and Mystro on the books, you can see why it’s taking Braintax (aka Joe Christie) so long to get out a follow-up album to Biro Funk.

    On the strength on the new 12”, it should be worth the wait as these are a couple of tracks that show off British rap at its best. Could ‘Last Tenner’ translate across the pond? The beats could without a doubt. “Lets go and get drunk” is a rally cry but not for any lager lout mosh pit fight club performance. The warning is at the start “The world has so many problems..We have lost so many young men”. But what can you do at 2.30am in a northern city with £10 in your pocket walking home? Braintax’s cry for peace is subtle, “Stop trying to act hard as it’s hip hop’s curse”.

    And then many things curse hip hop and he should know. ‘Run The Yards’ shows off his opionated flow slagging off major labels; it’s an easy hit. Stay angry and humble. If you don’t like Braintax’s chant cum poetry message, the instrumentals are excellent.

    ‘Last Tenner’ is bump bump funky while ‘Run The Yards’ is like some Kung Fu movie intro with Hank Marvin’s twangy guitar (hey! Twangy guitar brings together Braintax, Aim and Trost, BAT, the most unlikely trio supergroup ever!).

    This is well up to the standard of ‘Let’s Go Away’, which he did with Emmanuel and the forthcoming album Panorama is likely to be more of the same quality beats and original lyrics. To support the album, there’s a tour with fellow Low Life MC and long time mate, Mystro plus DJ Kam and Nighmares On Wax drummer Isaac Heywood. Remember to take a spare tenner to get home with.

    Ty - The Nonsense

    Oh You Want More :

    Ty - Upwards - 2003

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

  • Discogs - Ty Wax

  • Big Dada Sound

  • Ty Music.ORG

  • Very few British emcees have managed to achieve the full recognition they deserve in hip hop. This is specifically the case with veteran rapper Ty. One of London's favourable emcees, Ty has always stood apart from his peers, going his own way rather than running with the pack.

    After dropping his debut album, the aptly entitled Awkward in 2001, the woolly hat- wearing emcee is back with the follow up: Upwards. Having produced the album, along side Drew from Physic Phenomena, this time he's ensured his signature is firmly stamped all over it. With an eclectic ensemble of over twenty musicians contributing to the album, (including afro beat drummer Tony Allen and vocalists Michelle Escoffrey, and Breis), there is a distinct live "jamming session" vibe present.

    Kicking off with "Ha Ha" a gritty hip-hop b-line with a rock influence this definitely serves as a fitting opener. The catchy retro sound of "Wait a Minute" has Ty attempting to address those all too familiar relationship issues. He also goes on to the serious matter of gun crime with "Rain", a melancholic track laced with smooth soulful vocals. "Groovement" is the first single release - a summery feel good track, with instant appeal that entices you from the first play, youll find it difficult to resist tapping a toe. Other noticeable tracks include "The Willing" and "Music 2 Fly To" in which Ty continues to enlighten us with his personal and reflective observations of everyday life.

    In the current climate of UK rudebwoys spitting gritty tales of street survival, Upwards is doing something a little different. Embarking on a journey that is reminiscent of the true essence of hip hop, by using a hybrid of diverse musical flavours incorporating, hypnotic African rhymic beats, smoothed out jazz, old school funk, not forgetting a touch of soul.

    This rapping "Awkward Boy" is totally uncompromising in setting his own precedents. He's elevating himself upwards and inviting us to come with him. So just sit back, listen and enjoy the ride!

    Reviewer: Buki Bakare

    Ty tells tales of universal truth without once flashing his bling or bashing the dictionary, and the jazzy beats which seem deceptively simple if funky enough on first hearing soon reveal new depths. Instantly accessible, endlessly rewarding and absolutely essential. Check particularly for tracks like Dreams Which I've put in the MP3 Player)... More of a work of art than just Hip Hop the voices tell me.

    Again. If you havn't got this wax, your crates have got big problems.

    Mind Bomb / Rufmouth - Great British Beef - 1999

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    One of my heroes today. Definately the soundtrack to growing up here. If anyones known me over the years they'll recognise any of these albums cos they just keep being turned over time and time again. I'm gonna drop Great British Beef today as I've got the CD as well here, so you can get a 320 rip on this. But really you need to be checking for the entire Ruf Beats archive. Never let you down weather it be never seen before weapons, brilliantly produced hard beats and British to the core vocals. Get on the mailing list and get some value for money.

    Since 1993 he has performed as all names all over the world and is known as an underground leg – end, whether as a Dj, live show or his anything goes mixed up marathon displays of all round musical / hip hop school. Now becoming known as an entertainer and educator with his inspired writings on ALL THINGS FORBIDDEN – 9/11, the New World Audeuf, Masonic matters, Xopolitics and the game for control of mankinds’ brains and souls, he is currently Dj’ing, performing, reading poems, writing books, making music, travelling the world and in short, trying to get the truth to you lovely people in as least a painful method as possible. Rufmouth loves life, humanity, music, art, soul, (most) people but always felt he never really belonged until Revelations made him ascend his various typical British neurosis in 2001-2004.

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    Ruf Beats is both Rufmouths’ properly independent record label, that licenses and sells its track worldwide and the world reknown mail order record supplier of rare and dope DJ vinyl. Currently in 2004 these have been all put under the Rufmouth website, whilst Rufmouth tries to bring all his activities back to the core essence of himself, as Rufmouth, with NEW RULES that will show the world a new way of doing things through humanity and love, whilst trying to spread out party vibes and good times for the oppressed masses.

    Cosmic Gypsies.............................[No Visual]

    Foreign Beggars - Hold On feat. SkinnyMan

    Blade - Planned & Executed - 1995

    ................ And Life Time Avhievement Award.

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    Born in the Armenian quarter of Iran, Blade came to London aged 7. Within months of arriving, he felt the effect of the Islamic revolution back home. Unable to send money out of the country, Blade’s family could no longer support him. So, with no money, no family, alone in a strange country, Blade’s self-reliance and determination were all he had to see him through. The microphone, the studio and the stage provided his only release.

    1989 saw Blade’s first release with which he took to the street and sold direct to the punters. This became the blueprint for future ventures. A string of 12’s, ep’s and a massive double album followed, all of which were released on his own “691 INFLUENTIAL” label. Selling via mail order and on the streets, he amassed sales of up to 60,000 units. His one-man record operation quickly became the stuff of rap mythology.

    Final BLADE performances

    Blade will be playing two finals performances before taking a back seat with music.

    To all who have emailed and asked why and so on, rest assured Blade will continue to make music, just without the unpredictability and lies of the music industry hanging over his head. Basically, he wishes to make music but strictly for the love of it without any material interest. If at any point this changes, you will find out first right here, but for now musioc for love it is, and soon as we have any updates or music for free downloads, etc, we will email you all to let you know.

    To all who have shown support over the years, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for allowing Blade to live his dreams and make them a reality. To say his goodbyes, he has chosen 2 more performances, one in Switzerland and the other in Winchester.

    All information for these will be added shortly.

    Thanks again, but be sure to check back for more music in the future, some old, some new, some released, some not. Videos will also be added shortly from live performances

    For all who ask "did he do his last UK show a couple of months ago?"

    Blade had made a promise to a friend that he would do a show for him but due to date clashes that was not possible, but now the all clear is given, so the promise can be kept. It'll be good to see all of you down there at Winchester for this final performance.

    at Blade's request .....

    It's so hard to just pack it in like that when you've been in it all your life, but I have been turning down all shows except this one, as a promise was made. My heart tells me to still do shows just because I love performing so much, but my mind tells me something different. The clash between mind and heart and the doubt have led me to this decision. I have always been a firm believer of the saying "IF EVER IN DOUBT, DO WITHOUT" .... I hope you can all understand and appreciate the decsion, but I would like to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart for the support shown. YOU GUYS ARE THE REASON WHY MY LIFE IN MUSIC WAS EVER MADE POSSIBLE AND I CAN NEVER THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THAT OPPORTUNITY.

    The website will be kept live so please keep checking back for updates and free downloads as and when they happen, but for now, I just really need some time to myself and away from an unpredictable industry I have no respect for and never have.

    The album is now released and available to buy from stores and direct from :

    Mr Thing BIOGRAPHY

    Mr Thing aka Mark Bowles, first played out at Funky Buddha parties at the Tunbridge Wells Forum. He was soon became an original 'Scratch Pervert' along with Tony, Joel, and Paul. In 1999 this crew one the World DMC team championships (even more pleasingly, the final took place in New York)...

    ITF - Euro Team Champion 1998

    DMC - World Team Champion 1999

    DMC - UK Champion (3rd in World) 2000

    From the early years he's been as into collecting and playing tracks as he is into making beats. Which could explain why his beats are so good.

    In 2005 he's been recording albums with Tommy Evans and Yungun whilst his beats are in high demand from MC's all over the globe.

    Having collaborated with Yungun on numerous projects the pair have forged a strong partnership on record and on stage. Mr Things soulful backdrops are what provoked Yungun to drop more of his deep, thought provoking lyrics for which he is now known. Having just released their second white label together, Jackin 4 Breaks, the pair are also working on collaboration mixtape as well as their EP, GMB (Grown Man Business). Set for release on Silent Soundz, GMB showcases the diversity of Mr Things production prowess.

    Lovely to have this album MP3s after so many years. Bomb The Bass is hard to pin to a specific genre. I think like alot of groups at the time the bounderies of each were being pushed. Definately Hip Hop. Tracks to check for in my opinion, and speaking about music that has dominated playcount-wise and stood the test of time, I'd have to check for tracks like Say A Little Prayer.

    Jehst - Nuke Proof Suit - 2005

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    What better time, what with the Earths political climate over the past week, to pull out Jehst's 2005 classic Nuke Proof Suit. I've collected some worthy articles of brain food from across the net should you like to educate yourself with the specifics of the weeks news. It's all a bit easy and weak to get all doom and gloom about events like this, I always like to remain positive that things'll settle down over time. Can't we just all get along?

    Prolific english MC, born in Kent in the summer of '79, Jehst spent his childhood in Sussex before moving to Huddersfield, West Yorkshire as a teenager. Fueled by the bleak reality of the smack infested post-industrial North he re-located to London, making his vinyl debut in 1999 with the highly acclaimed "Premonitions" EP, launching the self-financed YNR (Young ‘n’ Restless) Productions label from his University halls of residence.
