Ghost - Seldom Seen Often Heard - 2006
Ghost is a well known figure in the UK Hip Hop scene. Starting life in Glasgow, moving onto Norwich, Derby, Manchester then London, Ghost has seen a lot of life from a lot of different places which has influenced his sound as it is today. Producing from an early age but unable to fund buying the equipment needed to make music, Ghost spent years learning his trade before releasing any product. From 2000 onwards Ghost spent his time learning mixing techniques and learning the skills needed to be able to release music, he would spend time handing out remix CD's at jams across London, and working on his radio show the "Midweek Session" on London only station dedicated to Hip Hop Itch fm

Evil Ed - The Enthusiast - 2004
Evil Ed has long been one of my favorite UK producers and to my mind this is one of the best producer albums to come out of the UK in the last 10 years. From start to finish 'The Enthusiast' showcases the rawest lyrical talent over truly memorable beats, this is defiantly an album you'll keep on heavy rotation for future years. The record was two years in the making and it shows in the intricate rhyming patterns and thoughtful lyrics. Some of the insights are brilliant - on the dark side is Playin' The Game, where Asaviour raps emotively about hanging in there in the face of vulnerability, or Life's A Struggle, a deeply felt track but for me the highlight is Great Expectations from Manchester's finest crew the Microdisiacs... check it out!

DJ Skully - Champion Sounds - 2003
Perhaps best known for his title-winning exploits in recent years, (He was the 2002 UK Champion and also came 2nd in the world DMC championships). He also co-hosts a show on Kiss FM alongside DJ MK.
This LP features 15 previously unreleased tracks - all cut n' patched into a seamless 55 minutes of straight rockin hiphop. Swinging between US and UK joints the LP doesnt dwell on geography but prefers to hit hard n' keep the mood rolling deep. Not all of the tracks hit my sweet spot but my personal highlights include: 'Components of Competition' by Unleashed By Science which uses Skully's tight cuts to intersect some wicked themed lyrics, whilst the layered production grooves with panache. Lewis Parker's dark banger 'Ay Yo', his bumpin production gets absolutely laced by Skriblah slapping down some bad battle rhymes. Celph Titled smacks some real attitude on 'Turntable Science' which gets atmospheric through shiny production and deejay themed verses - absolutely blinding.
01. DJ Skully 'Intro'
02. Unleashed By Science & DJ Skully 'Components Of Competition'
03. Headkrack 'Champion Sounds Special'
04. Maylay Sparks 'Take Risks'
05. Royalty featuring Mikey Starr 'Word Play'
06. Skriblah & Lewis Parker 'Ay Yo (I'm Here Now)'
07. Canibus 'Escape To Victory'
08. Celph Titled & DJ Skully 'Turntable Science'
09. The ARE featuring Headkrack 'Moving Target'
10. Joe Buhdha & Terrafirma 'B 4 U Die (The Burial)'
11. Est'elle 'Feelings'
12. Harmonic 33 featuring MCM 'It Feels Good'
13. Danny Breaks 'Junkie For Beatz'
14. Divine Mind featuring B.I., Loose Kannon, Mikchek & D.T. 'Good to Know'
15. LPD 'This Life'
16. Jehst & Tommy Evans 'Nouveau Riche' (BONUS EXCLUSIVE)

DJ Excalibah - The Ex Files Mix Tape - 2004
DJ Excalibah rose to fame as the voice of Tales from the Legend, a weekly independent and underground hip-hop show that aired on BBC's 1xtra and showcased real hip-hop from both sides of the Atlantic. For some reason his time was cut short after two year's to the amazement of many in the industry. His show was famous for it's UK Dubstates section in which Ex invited a UK MC to spit over a US beat. Hopefully we will see DJ Excalibah back on mainstream radio in the not so distant future.

The Creators - Bad Magic Mix Tape
In 1999, The Creators dropped 'The Weight', and pretty much nothing happened in the UK. Even though this album features a plethora of guest stars from the US (Talib Kweli, Mos Def, El Da Sensei, Phil Da Agony, etc.) I don't think it did that well over in the states either. It really is their loss, because this record is outstanding. Managing to sound very accomplished for their debut album, The Creators have created an album which would match and surpass it's American counterparts. The album was self financed on the whole until Bad Magic stepped in with some backing. If you're into real hip-hop then I'd really recommend this album, and if your not convinced you'll like it check out this 40 min mix tape showcasing their skills which was released just after The Weight came out. You won't be disappointed!

MC Pitman - It Takes a Nation of Tossers - 2003
It Takes a Nation of Tossers isn't gonna be everyone's cup of tea but if your a fan of comedy albums and/ or northern humor then this is gonna be right down your street! MC Pitman is the comedy creation of producer and MC Styly Cee of Lost Island fame. The album features alot of parodies of hip-hop joints, the title itself is obviously a Public Enemy rip-off. Although I wouldn't say this is a classic British hip-hop album it is a superb album from a man who would rather be digging coal with his big spade than making tunes. Pitman would rather talk about biscuits, chip rolls and tea than Uzis, pimps and ho's, which is what sets him apart from so much hip-hop." - Leeds

Dr Knox - iEgo
ARTIST/BAND: Dr Knox
BASED IN: Meanwood
BAND MEMBERS: Malaki - Vocals, Wisdomtooth - Production
We both went to primary school together and for that whole time were the best of friends. When Malaki was 13 years old he moved with his mother and sisters to Seattle in the US. We ended up losing contact and for many years grew up in very different environments. The main thing we had in common for all this time was indifference to the schooling system. Whilst we were both intelligent young people we felt excluded from our surroundings. I myself got expelled from my high school for smoking cannabis at 13 and moved to another high school where I knew no one. Nether of us achieved academic success and found ourselves wondering where our lives where going. Malaki moved back to Leeds a couple of years back. We soon hooked up and ever since have been working towards our album.
Taken from the BBC Leeds Website.
Released earlier this year, is some absolute dopeness from straight out the heart of Leeds. Incredible value at £6, It will be a very very shrude movement to be getting your hands on this.
Fabric Live 27 - DJ Format
Matt Ford, formally known as DJ Format, comes straight outta 'Hampton. Southampton. Maybe not the glorified upbringing that's likely to be expected from a rising hip hop pioneer, but Format is plenty appreciative of his past.

Funky DL - Blackcurrant Jazz - 2002
Funky DL first pursued his interest in music back in 1985. At only 8 years old he took a keen interest in ragga music and listened to such acts as Lieutenant Stitchie and Papa San.
Growing up in Hackney East London there was no short of an ethnic presence which meant that music was a common ground for many of the kids growing up and still is today.
DL’s older brother often would borrow tapes from their older uncles (without their mother knowing) which meant that acts like NWA crept into the household. This sparked a keen interest in hip-hop and the story telling within music which led to DL’s interest in acts like Biz Markie and his classic
“Pick The Boogas” and Special Ed’s and his famous “The Mission”
KRS-1 was also a favourite with “Love’s Gonna Get Ya” which meant BDP albums were helping to increase the influence of hip-hop in DL’s life.
After following the antics of the Fat Boys, Young MC, Master Ace and Schoolly D, DL got turned onto The Jungle Brothers and De La Soul and this was a crucial point in his affection with hip-hop as the afro-centric and eclectic funky sounds were ever so intriguing to a then 12 year old kid.

This is an exclusive nearly today. Although the tracks around 18 months since birth, the videos just been thrown on Youtube this afternoon. Just signed to Dropzone, Loki's someone you need to be investigating.
Foreign Beggars - Crypt Drawl EP - 2005
I don't care where you're from, If you havn't woken your scruffy arse up to what Foreign Beggars are putting together, then what music is it that you're actually living? The collective consists of Dag Nabbit, DJ Nonames, Metropolis, Orifice Vulgatron and Shlomo. This EP was the forerunner to a massive tour to lauch the Bukkake Ski Trip LP. But with numerous efforts under their belts already, these characters are pushing all the correct buttons. Crypt Drawl EP is quite difficult to get hold of, so If you see this out on foot patrol, waste no time n hand over the readies. The star of this 12 is definately Crypt Drawl. It's just so fuckin nasty it goes places so dark that hip hop tracks don't often go this deep, really nasty rage filled raps here seriously. Don't fuck about this isn't for 14 year olds waiting for the new Justin Timperdink CD, or 3 wannabees rapping about Clio V6's in the garden shed.
'Crypt Drawl' will be finding it's way to the MP3 player by tomorrow. Also check down the page for the blinding 'Frosted Perspex' video if you havn't already done so.

2 - Crypt Drawl (feat.Anik)

Now I know that Dented Records are obviously out of stock currently with this, however they still have much delights you need to check fro from the following link. Theres also a link in the Sidebar if you wanna keep checking back for new units.
Lotek Hi Fi - Lotek Hi Fi Mini Album - 2003
Lotek Hi Fi consist of Aurelius Calliste, Wayne Bennett and Wayne Paul. The Lotek Hi Fi mini album isn't much like anything else you've heard before. It's like a melting pot of genres stirred together in the guise of some classic UK hip hop. You sense a few things in there when listening, maybe a bit of regae or a bit of ragga given a digital down tempo edge, and layered with some menacing vocal tones. Well worth having the black stuff. Heads need to be checking for tracks like 'Inner Storm' and 'Voodoo Boogaloo'.... And for the 'Mixed Blessings' mix CD, also out on Big Dada. Check the Lotek Hi Fi Discogs link for a full catalogue of releases.
