‘The Houdini Footprints Of Some People Never Go Crazy’
(Skreemer Records)

Like a well kept secret the UK underground Hip Hop scene knows about Blaktrix. Acclaimed for his flow and off kilter techniques he seems eventually destined to be recognised as one of the leading Hip Hop artists in the country…

His first significant release ‘Indian Rope Trick’ featuring Humurak D Gritty & DJ Moneyshot won the Ras Kwame’s ‘Homegrown Track Of The Week’ for three consecutive weeks. The Bradford born artist, who now spends his time between Manchester and Cardiff, went on to feature on the Ras Kwames Homegrown Collection 2006 CD (HipHop Connection Magazine). DJ Magazine described his ‘Trust’ EP ‘a classic’. Blues ‘n’ Soul Magazine acclaimed the next release from Blaktrix ‘What Shall BE’ EP as ‘proof not all best british hiphop comes out of London.’

Blaktrix spent a short stint on the infamous SFDB Label and featured on the Secondson and his Orchestra Lp along with artists such as Taskforce, Lewis Parker and Jehst. He has supported Skinnyman and Goldie Lookin Chain in venues across the country such as Bristol Academy and has performed live on BBC radio. ‘Blix James Bitch’ is played considerably on C4’s Extreme Sports. Blaktrix was also featured on ‘Unsigned’ on HTV Wales. When times were hard Rola from the Numskullz, Monky and Stagga (now renowned dubstep producers) from Optimas Prime provided him with the space and studio to lay down some of his heaviest material. Most of this only ever came out on Vinyl some of it never at all…

This release is a FREE MP3 download but is also available on limited edition CD. This collection of unreleased or previously exclusive to vinyl tracks is preparation for the highly anticipated album ‘SOME PEOPLE NEVER GO CRAZY’ which drops November 2010. Can’t wait!
