Following closely on from the release of the Sniper EP by Novelist last month, fellow Grime newcomer and Oil Gang affiliate JT The Goon has provided a free download of his solid remix of the EPs lead track. Building upon what was an already dark banger, JT has incorporated some characteristically viscous square waves and a savage bass stab resulting in an overall sound that should be instantly recognisable to those familiar with his previous work. Stream and download the track on Soundcloud and cop the Sniper EP from Oil Gang now.

Carnival is coming!!
The vibe is like nothing else, which is why you will hear everyone hyping about it all year.
The whole event is two days of seeking out the best floats and stages, picking up cans of Red Stripe and safe-spudding all the familiar faces. That almost rhymed, so you KNOW I’m excited!
Aside from the flowing rum, nothing says Notting Hill like a multicultural mix of people coming together to celebrate life with good music and a box of curry goat. And obviously when gyal wine and wuk up our waist too. In fact, the only downside to Carnival is paying a Pound to pee in a stranger’s house - last year this inflated to two whole English Pounds, so it’s safe to say the street urination levels are going to be at an all time high. Girl’s, ensure you have a mate look out for nosey drunk men and, obviously, the police. Or if you are lucky like me, you will have at least 2 friends that you will force to take you to their house so you can have shots with their mum and relieve yourself.
Even smelling of BBQ smoke and going home with those classic bruises (my blog is making me sound like an abuse victim, but I swear its all life enjoyment scars) is all worth it for two of the best days of the year.
Set to be highlights are Boxfresh’s event with Rinse FM on the Sunday, and Toddla T’s stage over by Kensal Road on the Monday. Pree Instagram for who will be about.
As ever the pre-parties will be paaaaaappin - that means more ‘popping’ than usual yeah.
Open up your diary now because it pretty much starts this Thursday at Visions Video Bar in East, which see’s the likes of Spooky, Spyro, Footsie and D Double E plus more.
Then Friday Good ole’ Carny fave Ms Dynamite will be performing in Kensal Rise, with even more Grime over at Birthdays from Flava D, along with Terror Danjah for your heavy Jungle fix (the after-party lineup here sounds sick too).
Saturday is a mad one, with Hot Wuk Truck Party at KoKo providing a tropical delight of a float up inna di club, and even closer to home Paradise is hosting an event at Notting Hill Arts club blasting warm up tunes from Mo Fingaz and Kiss FM’s DJ MK. I can’t wait for this as we’ve been promised a special party set to remember! And it’s free on guestlist! This will be perfect if you plan to stagger to Carnival the next day. Just try not to scare the kids.
Wait! I’m still not done! Female Takeover in Camden will be showcasing female MC’s (YAY), including the likes of Ms Banks and Bow Promise on Tuesday 26th, so pick yourself up from your hangover and make effort for the ladies.
As always there will be tons of men ready to charm. My favourite lines to date are ‘Do you have BB’ and ‘Are you on o2 babes?’.
Let us remember that we are celebrating a wealth of culture, and this alone should be the source of the love and energy that surrounds us all this bank holiday.
P.S don’t wear open toe shoes, no one needs that kind of negativity.

First things first this isn't a comeback as regardless of who has come and gone in UK Rap Giggs is one of the few artists to solidly maintain his position with the fans as well as fellow Rapper and here is the STR8 MURKIN mixtape which see's the Peckham & SN1 representative take things back to the streets with a handful of some of the hardest freestyles and remixes i have heard in a while with Giggs reminding the fans why he is number one at this street shit.
collaborations as usual with Giggs are never forced and we have Kano, Kyze, Skrapz. Suspect, Buck OTB and more attacking some stellar street beats from Mr Virgo, Urban Monk, Pablo Productions and Boom productions among others who all bring that good old gutter sound which always works well for Giggs laid back and aggressive flow.
It's actually wrong to say there are any stand out tracks on this mixtape as the whole tape bangs like a set of African drums from the beginning to end making it another solid addition to Giggs past classic mixtapes.

While Dot Rotten hasn't been the most prolific UK artist of 2014 he has had his moments and there is one thing about Dot Rotten which will never change and that's his ability to churn out high levels of top quality music and fans of his music wont be disappointed as the Interview mixtape is no different with Dot Selecting 16 hard, deep and heartfelt tracks for free download with some rugged Grime and Rap tracks as well as some interesting and well selected guest spots from the likes of Lady Leshurr and more.

Last year I predicted big things for Northampton Grime representative Izzie Gibbs who has fought hard for his recognition and respect in the Grime scene over the past 12 months with the rising star dropping solid freestyles regularly as well as radio appearances and a willingness to enter battles on just about any platform available.
In other words Izzie Gibbs is hungry.
Izzie's hunger is easily his driving force and see's him delivering the mixtape Real To The Death which features an 7 impressive and well put together tracks not straying from the Grime sound which is where his rapid flow and higher level wordplay are at its best as is exemplified on the tracks Rude Boy, Who Said and Live My Life as well as proving he can hold his own against big guns Manga & Opium on the track Where I've been which also features J Wing.
Look out for more from Izzie Gibbs coming soon.

Youngs Teflon is back with a second instalment of his Grimes Dead freestyles with the UK Rapper once again showing that Grime isn't a genre he can't deal with effectively and hopefully we will hear more of these as they are a lot better than some of the quite boring freestyles we get from Grime MC's these days.

You'll be pleased to know that my gun fingers have made a full recovery after Lovebox, so I'm, going to take a moment for the ladies that do it big; Lady Leshurr, Ms Banks and C Cane repped it haaaaard for the females last night, getting the crowd shouting louder than even some of the more established artists! Far from holla-back girls, they shone as individuals, with Lady Lesh spitting her Shurraq freestyle - it was a proud moment to be amongst a group of women watching top girls spraying talent all over the place.
The build up to Narstie continued with Shizz and Discarda forcing the crowd into hype mode, along with West Londoner (brap) Scrufizzer's super sharp flow.
I have to mention President T for his TV satellite stance, and Gino (no no no - thanks for getting that stuck in my head) who also heightened the atmosphere.
If you still don't feel pissed that you missed it then hollup hollup hollup...
Time for me to get seriouusssss....JME did what JME does best: comes to a rave and shuts it down. Even the buzz in the crowd was taken to a different level of adoration, but the golf playing vegan kept it straight Grime, previewing new bars as well as classics.
Now for the BDL heads.
A smashing combo of Big Narstie and Flirta D was what we were waiting for to top off the night and there were no disappointments, just a ton of bangers both old and new - and even a cheeky appearance from Angry Shopkeeper! Lordie had to throw me a face towel so need I say more? #Sweat #Base #YouFuckedUpIfYouMissedOut
A personal shout out to the super fan in the red tshirt who got chucked out after buying a base pen. The front of stage just wasn't the same without you.
Hello high to everyone who showed love, keep your eyes peeled for footage to come.
