Everyone is talking about the new album from Kanye West - Yeezus. It has very divided reviews. I've heard a few tracks today via BBC Radio 6 who made it their album of the day. The good reviews all talk about it's more than a Hip Hop album, he is pushing boundaries and shouldn't be judged against his previous albums. I read an interview with Rick Rubin who is executive producer and he said he striped it right back in terms of the music and Kanye knocked the lyrics out in almost no time. This has troubled some people. On the one hand it's pure raw expression, but undoubtedly leaves Kanye open to criticism by doing an album in this way. On the other maybe fans are just wishing he'd do another more comprehensive album on a par with College Drop Out or Late Registration. Apart from the reviews that are happy with Yeezus as a release, I have not heard much good about 808s and Heartbreaks or MBDTF. From what I have heard today it's not at all unlike those al

Whilst we are taking a beating from wind and rain, it seems we need a flame thrower to bring in the Summer. To ensure I don't start suffering from SAD  I find myself listening to the first Prodigy album and it's giving me crazy energy and good vibes. The true mark of a great tracks and remixes. I have a lot of good memories of course from having listened to this and heard it at house parties in my youth, but it still stands strong aside from those. Easily my favourite album from the guys, not that the others didn't include classics too, but this set the benchmark. If you don't know about the Prodigy, get listening. EDM (really, did there need to be a new name for dance music?) as far as I can tell owes a lot to the early artists paving the way. Now I need to find some hardcore classics album featuring Moby's "GO", 808 State's "Pacific State" and Altern8's "Activ8". Any suggestions, links and downloads are welcome. A

New Date Added - June 7th Koko, Camden

So today I found out I will be seeing these guys on Friday 7th June at KOKO in Camden! Sam Arojo Action Bronson I've been trying to see Bronson for a while now and this is a great surprise and opportunity. You should already know Sam, and if you don't you can check him out here - Camo Socks . Whilst I don't necessarily feel every track or identify with all the subject matter Bronson spits (I have listened to Well Done, Blue Chips and Rare Chandeliers), the mastery of his flow and stage presence cannot be denied. By far my favourite album has been Rare Chandeliers, with notable guests like Evidence, Mayhem Lauren, Sean Price, Styles P and Roc Marciano, and heavy production by Alchemist. Koko is a decent venue, and weather should be good for the trip to Camden after work Friday night. Be good to catch up with Sam and let my hair down, so to speak. Maybe get some good pics and video if the mood takes me, otherwise just get drunk (maybe a lil' high
