As one half of UK hipHop outfit Broke’n’English, Strategy shows off what their recent Umbro bursary can do in only 2 weeks! Not one to shy away from his roots, the lyrics are a homage to the City he grew up in and everything else that happened along the way. Freebies like this bring a mighty smile to my face and its going to be interesting to see what Strats and DRS come up with for their follow-up to their debut album, Subject2Status. Highlights of this appetite whetter are the acoustic version of Life On The Costa Del Salford ft. Samim Harmim, The Bleep Test and The Referendum ft. Konny Kon and DRS. Bag this and then head over to Broke’n’English blog and bag everything else youcan. Refreshingly original stuff.
Sparkz started writing lyrics and producing his own tunes when he was just 15 years old.
In 2009 he won music competition “MCR Superstars” and was awarded the prize of travelling to New York to meet various hip hop artists and have the chance to work in the studio with them. He leaves next month.
Inspired by his win Sparkz began to work harder on music by improving his production skills and getting his hands on the microphone at nights in Manchester.
With hype building and his name appearing alongside the likes of Mouse Outfit, Broke n £nglish and Skittles he’s ready to show you his combination of laid back productions and honest real life lyrics with his first free download. Download the “Back To Basics” EP exclusively from his Facebook and get ready to start hearing about him a lot more often.
UK producer and Youngsta favourite Mosaix has offered up these two tracks as a thankyou for his 500 followers on Facebook. Both are deep futuristic soundscapes with samples and hits that compliment. Grab them both and then head over to his page. Hopefully he’ll give away some more.
17 year old Pále has some seriously sick tunes under his belt. Now he is giving away a full release! Unbelievable quality from this young producer. Pick it up here:

Having recently moved to Manchester, London’s XXXY has been busy developing his sound. Drawing on influences from ragga and drum and bass as well as house and garage this is one producer who is certainly hard to keep up with. Having attended a night in Manchester’s northern quarter recently I can confirm that he tears the place down with a unpredictably smooth mix of styles, from grime and dancehall anthems through to hip hop and slow jams! There was not a dull moment and the dancefloor was packed until 4am. This new free tune is a nice example of how XXXY accomplishes this. Danceable and funky but with a fresh sound – the bass keeps pumping whilst the track develops. Lovely stuff.
Apologies to latecomers, the download limit was reached after only three hours of being uploaded! Hopefully mr XXXY will make it available elsewhere for those who missed it.
And he has! Download here >>>> http://wtrns.fr/Vqa41EqaypFdHo
