Baron Samedi - Wanderland (Harry Shotta Vote)

Album OUT NOW! Get at me for review copies or interviews! DJ's please support!

London-based MC and producer Baron Samedi (pronounced Bah-ron Sah-meh-dee) first picked up a pen and a sampler over ten years ago and since then has been grinding away crafting his art and slowly building a rep through the release of several well-received street albums and mix-tapes, both as a solo artist and as one half of Undercurrent with fellow MC Lixx, beginning with the self-produced 2002 Undercurrent concept album Sons Of Celluloid, and quickly followed in 2003 by debut solo album Spit Happens: The Musical, which is still rated as one of the most original and best underground UK hip hop releases ever by many fans.
In 2004 Baron began an association with Leicester-based label Main Rock Records, which led to the release of the Theme Music 12", the critically-acclaimed Undercurrent EP Pirate Radio, and his sophomore solo album Ripping Yarns within a 2 year period, resulting in coverage in Hip Hop Connection, Undercover, DJ Mag, and Blues And Soul, as well as airplay on Steve Lamacq's Radio 1 show. Two more street mixtapes followed, 2006's Animal Rites and the 2008 Undercurrent mixtape Crisis Talks, whilst Baron remained holed up in the lab perfecting his style. Most recently, he has fully produced fellow London MC Grit Grammar's debut album, Life Music, and the first single off it, Hard Times, featuring Genesis Elijah, was Radio 1xtra's Introducing track of the week, as well as featuring on Radio 6's Introducing show, whilst the follow-up single, Life Is, featuring Kyza and Dani Appadoo, has received daytime support on 1xtra from both Viz and Max.

Now, 2011 sees the long-awaited release of Baron Samedi's new solo album, Wanderland. Entirely self-produced, and not reliant on a glut of guest appearances for impact, Wanderland is a modern tour-de-force of thoughtful, original hip hop standing alone in a sea of formulaic music. From the opening prog-rock stylings of Prelude, through the future-funk stutter of Wanderland and Crooked House, past the soulful melodies of Better Days and Airport Lounges, all the way to the laconic ode to London which is The Valley, Wanderland is an album which sounds unlike any of its peers, either musically or lyrically, and shines through because of it. Baron Samedi - the future begins here.

J-Syn DaKidd

J-Syn is an American recording artist. Growing up in the Jamaica, Queens area of New York, he has the east coast-influenced sound in his music. His popularity is growing underground with single track leaks before the release of his mixtape.

His start was as a rapper spitting verses on popular instrumentals. J-Syn's buzz started to grow with some of his dancehall songs, especially with his dancehall remix to Rihanna's Rudeboy. After seeing his music showing up on many websites across the internet, J-Syn decided it was time to release some new rap songs. That's when he recorded and released his Hottest in the Hood freestyle which gained the attention of hip-hop listeners. He then recorded a verse on Lil Wayne's Right Above It, which made his buzz even bigger than it was. J-Syn took it to another level featuring on a verse for the Nicki Minaj song Ice Cream Man. That hard work and dedication is what took him to where he is now. It's definitely not going to stop there. This is just the beginning for J-Syn.  His song Motivated, which features T-Pain, is a big hit on the internet and in the clubs.

His popularity is beginning to grow, and is steadily increasing across the internet. J-Syn’s becoming an artist that many people are looking out for. His music is also being heard in the club scene and on the radio.

He recently recorded a verse for Mims new single Winter’s My Summer, which is now on iTunes. Its evident that J-Syn will stop at nothing as he continues to create music for a wide range of listeners.

Reggiimental & Matt Henshaw - When I Close My Eyes (Music Video)

ReggiiMental (also known as Jimmy B-Boy) is a UK Rapper that thinks outside the box. It's probably fair to say that the best way to think about ReggiiMental is to 'expect the unexpected', as this Midland's based lyricist and performer is a very open-minded, forward thinking individual with his own unique style. ReggiiMental is a true pioneer in the creation of the musical genre branded as 'B-Boy Soul'.

ReggiiMental's last single 'Can't Hold Back' featured Midlands singer Matt Henshaw and was well received within the media and actually featured in The Guardian on Paul Lester's 'band of the day' playlist for September 2010. Matt Henshaw featured this track in the live performance he did at Love Box 2010 after he won NME Breakthrough Competition to open the main stage at the festival. 

Most UK Rap fans will know of Reggiimental's work as he was an integral part of the Hip-Hop Collective called Gnostix who where signed to RustyJukeBox Records also home to Unfriendly Neighbours, Matt Henshaw and The Lost Generation. ReggiiMental has also featured on underground mixtape releases from & UK Runnings, as well as collaborating with Baby J, Mike-S (SlapUp Mill), Wizard and Cipher J.E.W.E.L.S from Moorish Delta 7 and sharing stages with Example, N-Dubz and the legendary KRS-One.

As well as making good music Matt Henshaw and Reggiimental are both supporters of the Love Music Hate Racism Campaign. These positive vibes must be working as their music is so uplifting and inspiring! The new single 'When I Close My Eyes' has a distinct 60's vibe with its infectious organ riffs, catchy hook-line and a super sick flow from ReggiiMental. 'When I Close My Eyes' comes with a great music video and is the first track to be taken from the forthcoming EP 'The FirePit' which is released in April 2011.

In the meantime don't forget to check out these other quality music videos.

Commentary from Quiet Storm:  

The Way Out Is Within
Ever have an upsetting experience that was a repeat of something you went through in the past?  Do you find yourself asking “how many times must I go through this before I get it?  This is called the vicious cycle.
There are lessons begging to be learned in this kind of scenario but you can be certain the underlying message confronting you is to develop faith in yourself and to trust your intuition.
We all pay lip-service attesting that we do indeed believe in and trust ourselves.  We emphatically insist we do!  Meanwhile, many of our actions and results say otherwise.
We think we must prove ourselves worthy to certain people or groups to be acceptable. In many ways we are taught to second guess ourselves at almost every turn from a very early age even though our life experiences show us in one way or another that we have free will to choose.
Sometimes unconsciously, we send ourselves through great difficulties that actually lead to growth in areas like strength of character, confidence/esteem, or deeper trust in self.  Often times, we are prompted by hard times to let go of belief systems and traditions that keep us from knowing and living our purpose.
Often times, new ideas and ways of looking at things can threaten our ego.  Usually, when this happens, the first thing the ego will do is reject this new information until we have some kind of overwhelming evidence that it is true.  This does not necessarily mean the ego is a stumbling block to us, because its real purpose is protection.  It attempts to protect us until the new thought or realization has gone into the subconscious mind past the ego making it ready for practical use and application.  By the way, one of the best uses for mantras or sitting in different postures is in helping to reprogram the mind beyond the conscious.
Ego can also be a double edged sword.  On one hand it protects us from being susceptible to any and everything; on the other hand, it can be cleverly deceptive.  Case in point, you may have recently experienced a situation that highlighted you should begin to trust yourself more, that you need to be more in tune with what’s true for you and rely less on the opinions of others.
Now, as you face this new experience, you receive some insight as to how to solve an issue or what you should do; but then you get a suggestion from a close friend or relative that points you in a different direction altogether.  This is where your ego may try to disguise itself as the “voice of reason”, admonishing you to be careful, you can’t know everything; just maybe you should take the path of least resistance and follow the advice of others.  And there you are, once again faced with learning to trust yourself; these lessons have a way of repeating themselves over and over until we act like we’ve finally learned.
Now there are those of us whose ego works in the opposite way whenever anyone tries to share something that can make a difference you outright dismiss their views or opinions because you are “All Knowing”.  If you tend to be greedy or selfish your ego will allow you to justify your actions and that “voice of reason” will say ignore what the other person is saying you know best.  Trusting yourself to does not mean “Listen to Nobody” it simply means take whatever considerations and information you need or desire and then choose freely letting your spirit be your guide.  So Uncle Bob and Cousin Sue may have some great suggestions or information when it comes to the final action thank them for sharing and you make the choice freely!
Within each of us lies enormous untapped power.  Going beyond the surface is required if we are ever to access and harness this power.  In fact, I’m convinced it’s more about self knowledge than how much you’ve learned or can repeat.
The culture of ancient Kemet was where that old adage “know thyself” was first extolled and for sage reason.  They knew this as the way to truly be self assured and balanced.  Long ago they observed this was key to the kind of self confidence that enhanced a person’s ability to wisely see what is in their own best interest, recognizing what is meant for you thus putting yourself on the path to highest fulfillment without regrets.
So long as we are having a human experience, none of us can escape dealing with the ups and downs of living.  There is no such thing as flow without ebb, one cannot exist without the other; anyone believing there can be endless growth without experiencing retraction has been mislead and will be sorrowfully disappointed.
It’s understandable that in the midst of negativity, it can be difficult to see how it may be transforming you to greater levels, but the more you practice looking for it, the easier it becomes to see especially during stressful times.  Finding the divinity in life’s ups and downs keeps us from being on an emotional roller coaster with every new change.
Don’t get it twisted though, the ability to find the divinity in the dumb shit, so to speak, does not mean you have to become a doormat in life (if someone’s trying to mug you).  This process is not about becoming stupid to reality but it is about seeing the goddess/god in all things and striving to incorporate or become that with balance.
In closing, if this resonates with you avoid having it become the next thing to cheerlead.  You already know this, you were born with it.
The time is now to go within and seek your inner knowing in all manner of things.  This knowing leads to your ultimate benefit both on the spiritual and physical levels.

A tree stump never shifts (your inner knowing will never fail you)
