RICTA - SNACKS & DECEPTION LP (OUT NOW)
With mainstream Hip Hop still widely governed by the same tried and tired stereotypes we've all been used to for some time now, you could say it would be refreshing to hear something new and different and that's exactly what Ricta brings to the table in his debut album 'Snacks & Deception', big boom bap style beats reminiscent of acts like Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples & People Under The Stairs provide the backdrop to many a great story. From relationship trials and tribulations, hopes, dreams, or even just waking up to a cornish pasty, Ricta shows his vulnerabilities as well as playing his part of underground Hip Hop party rocker.
Much of the album production is Ricta's own but also features hits from Germany's 'Jusoul', 'Robot Orchestra', 'Beatowski' & Poland's 'The Returners'. Ricta also pulls a first on this album by bringing together big US rap artists with those from the UK, track 13 on the album 'Atlantic Anthem' sees Craig G (Juice Crew), Reks, Dizzy Dustin (Ugly Duckling), Idyllic, & Precha all coming together on one track to create something truely unique. The anticipation is high and the stage is set and yet one of Ricta's most important traits lends itself now better than ever, his ability to remain humble and "stick to what he knows best", this is Hip Hop !
Heducation (Birmingham's longest running Hip Hop night) are celebrating their 11th birthday this year and are hosting the official launch party for Ricta's new album 'Snacks & Deception' (Beat Back Records) on Friday June 8th. Midlands-based Ricta's distinctive voice, intelligent lyrics and golden era vibe are a winning formula! Don't miss his great live show...

Sir Tomz began life in the rap crew Shadowless who had a big release on Big Dada Records. As an integral member of the crew, Tomz showed his skill on the mic and behind the boards achieving major attention from urban music lovers worldwide. Sir Tomz aka Shadowless Tomz went on to remix Roots Manuva's 'Bashment Boogie' for the Big Dada Records label compilation 'Extra Yard' which was mixed by DJ Excalibah, as well as the track 'Sky Fall' by Shadowless featuring on Tim Westwood's well respected CD compilation album 'UK Hip-Hop 2002 Vol.1'. Sir Tomz has also played live all over the UK, Spain and France as well as producing for other artists and guest featuring on other artists releases.
More recently Tomz has been back on his grind and making waves here in the UK and in the USA. Sir Tomz decided to remix five of the tracks from the album over industry beats and then dropped two music videos for them both having over 4000 hits on You Tube. The US unofficial remixes have been used on mixtapes from DJ Ames and Tricksta from UK Runnings, as well as featuring on the US released mixtape from DJ 5X & Coast2Coast Mixtapes entitled 'International Speaker Box 2' which was also hosted by Sir Tomz. He recently got commissioned to do a remix for Chicago label Knowledge Giving Birth (KGB) as well producing a ten track street album for MKD from Royalists. With a new energy and a new focus, Sir Tomz is bringing us back to reality. Bubblegum free, Sir Tomz is conscious Hip-Hop with a message and an artist with staying power.
His latest release 'Lockdown' drops as a collaboration project between his own imprint Jailhouse Records and UK Runnings Mixtapes. Mixed & hosted by one of the UK's leading mixtape deejay's Tricksta, who has released official mixes with the likes of French Montana, D-Block, Red Café, Papoose, The Jacka, Stat Quo, Chamillionaire, DJ Paul from Three Six Mafia and UK acts such as Iron Braydz, Skriblah from Terra Firma, M9, Big Cakes, Big Narstie and many more, this is an essential release for the UK Hip-Hop community. Featuring the production & the song writing talents of Sir Tomz, 'Lockdown' also features guest appearances from Nih'illi, Cyrus, Blackitude and Juice Aleem from New Flesh For Old.
