As we step over to California to hear the one and only Gavlyn, a Rapper and Spoken Word artist who has only been rapping sine 2006 yet has blessed the public with many personal appearances in this time. I was given the heads up about Gavlyn by our mutual friend and Los Angeles heavyweight Destruct some time ago where I heard a very well executed 'Walking Down The Street' which samples the 1963 Dionne Warwick classic 'Walk On By'. Curious are you? good, cos it's on this mixtape. The best thing about this is that it's just a promo mixtape (with original production) that she's put out just before the release of her debut album 'From Tha Art'. We'll most likely post it here as soon as we're in the know...

The wait is over.... Sons Of South are back at what they do best with the third installment of their 'All Eyes On The South' series this time with MC Blaze (Real Name No Gimmicks) as the executive producer. Expect to hear the whole squad (Blaze, Naturekid, Verbal Remedy, Mr Prophecy, DJ Jeckal, Terror & ext fam DJoe) as well as guests appearances from V.E.X, Jack Flash, Gadget & Louisunseen (Millennium Jazz) & Unfriednly Neighbours ..to name a few. Personally I've only heard 'Stupid Brear' produced by SOS's very own Terror, 'Can't Contest', & 'No Gimmicks' and this really bumps, especially at high volume. That said, I have volumes 1 & 2 and I know what these guys are capable of so as the CD gets nearer to my postbox this project already gets a Diggaz Love recommendation.

Respect to the brotha for airing his views. I've already seen that this track has sparked off alot of talk among the community due to the name dropping and points against what many would call the uk's best. Which ever stance you take on 'Smiler' and his views this was a good listen. What happens now? good question...

If you know nothing of the Nottingham MC/arguably the best rhymer of the old 'Out Da Ville' squad then I suggest you swiftly download this collection and hope no one had noticed. You'll be more than happy with this if you are a lover of clever and far from over the top lyrics as we are blessed with a piece of Scorzilla's back catalog. And it all kicks off with one of my favorites 'Archery', nuff said...

Boom, 2010 and it's time to get back on the grind with our projects etc. For Lab Off pt 7 the talented Dan Bull has challenged us with four samples to flip. The difference from past Lab Offs was that he gave us four difficult vocals samples to do our thing with.
As usual we could taken parts from one sample, combined them, as well as use additional sounds from vst's, synths and even other samples. But the main sample had to have came from at least one of the tracks provided.
Deadline was: 11:59pm Friday January 22nd 2010
