J. Karma – The Next Level

London born emcee J. Karma moved to Norwich at an early age and started recording around 2008. With a host of local acts all doing their thing, J. Karma knew it was time to unleash some of his music. After creating a local buzz by shifting over a thousand CD’s and getting airplay from Future FM, J. Karma is a name to watch out for. Inspired by life and all the stresses and joys of inner city living combined with his unique but diverse style of riding a beat can be heard all the way through his latest release ‘The Next Level’. J. Karma has arrived and arrived with a bang. Tipped already by various tastemakers to do big things, J. Karma is ready to take his sound to the next level.

With a string of solid reviews from some of the UK’s leading on-line magazines and blogs, as well as FM and Internet radio play and recently being interviewed for Rago Magazine, the vibe is already building for J. Karma’s ‘The Next Level’ mixtape. This talented songwriter and performer has teamed up with a host of featured guests including Grime star Little Dee who was part of the chart-topping Roll Deep and now reps hard with the OG’z alongside P Money & Blacks. The mixtape also features Tommy Bones, UK Hip-Hop veterans DPF & Reds from Chronic Redye, as well as rising UK rappers Franko Fraize and Jammin Kane. Quality music throughout, this is a must for fans of Grime, Hip-Hop and Urban Music.

Ghost67 ‘Angel Of Sin’ OUT NOW

British rapper and lyricist Ghost 67 began writing spoken word at the tender age of sixteen until he heard Mark B & Blades album ‘The Unknown’. It was this slice of UK Hip-Hop history that really got Ghost67 writing and recording tracks and freestyles. Ghost67 swore he would track down Blade as he wanted to show him his bars and his flow, as well as taking on board any advice that this experienced UK veteran could give. Ghost67 then made his way to London to see Everlast live and out of pure coincidence Blade was supporting! The two conversed during the gig and numbers were swapped. Eight months later, Ghost67 released ‘Regular Guys’ featuring Blade and as they say, the rest is history.

Since then Ghost67 has recorded several songs for various projects and has featured on tracks released in UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Holland and France building a strong underground international following. Through his underground network of record labels, artists and producers, Ghost67 has managed to collaborate with artists such as Stackadolla of Redman’s Gillahouse family, New York’s Kristin Hoffman, German Hip-Hop act Ich & Wirr, Houston’s underground group The Paperboys and London’s Mad Sabre, amongst others. He has also been active on the mixtape scene with support from UK Runnings and DJ Ophax from France, as well featuring on the ‘Kingdom Of Crooks’ mixtape with Mr CRF and Rack-Lo from New York.

Now in 2011, Ghost67 switches gears as he ups the tempo for the release of his long awaited debut album. Over seventy minutes of undiluted realness, ‘Footsteps Of An Angel Of Sin’ promises to be Ghost 67’s best work to date, as well as featuring US rapper Celph Titled, Blade, Mr CRF. Wordsmiff, Face (So Solid Crew) and an array of other talented artists. ‘Angel Of Sin’ is the official first single and it’s a slice of much needed UK Hip-Hop that is already being well received from bloggers and DJ’s. Keep your ears pricked and eyes peeled for the caveman of rap. You won’t be let down.

Rediculus, the talented producer from Chicago drops new single & album

The talented producer from Chicago is releasing his new project to the thrill of his fans around the world. Rediculus has released the next edition of his Masters of Conversation production series titled Punchlines and Parables, quickly following up his critically acclaimed Walking Down Broken Paths instrumental album and marking the 4th edition of the production series. Rediculus, who resides in Chicago, Illinois, just put the final touches on the last mixes literally a few weeks ago and is now preparing to delight his fans with his latest studio album which he hopes will expand his fan base and get his music heard by more people around the globe.

The first single, “Halo (Pain is Love)” which was released last month to rave reviews, features a hard blaring horn sample with a neck snapping snare to drive the track and longtime collaborator and fellow Chicagoan Prome on the microphone dropping lyrical napalm on the track.

The new single “Picture Perfect” has a soulful backdrop and smooth knocking drums and features verses from vocal giants Sha Stimuli, Sadat X of Brand Nubian fame and Emilio Rojas spitting nothing short of classic verses.

The album, “Masters of Conversation: Punchlines and Parables”, is 17 tracks all produced by Rediculus and features some of hip hop’s hottest MC’s such as Ruste Juxx, Craig G, Sha Stimuli, Emilio Rojas, Chubb Rock, Koncept and The Audible Doctor from Brown bag All Stars, Big Dutty Deeze, Chaundon, Notoriety, Stumik Icewater, Sadat X, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Red Eye, Pair-a-Dyce, Nine and many more.

The album itself is both a return to the “Golden Era” and a glimpse into the future of hip hop. Soulful samples scream and wail throughout the project, backed by growling bass lines and driving drum tracks with custom kicks and snares that showcase the wide variety of influences in Rediculus’s life and music.

Rediculus is quoted as describing the project with the following statement; “This album is going to really make people think about what they listen to and show people that you can reach consumers without watering down our culture. We have a host of people in the culture who are over 30 and want music that they can relate too, something with more substance that addresses the issues in their lives. The current trend of making songs about negative images backed by empty music is coming to an end and this project should definitely help drive the nails into that coffin. People want something smarter and I’m here to give it to them”

The album is digitally distributed globally by Island/Def Jam and will include several limited edition runs of physical copies, with a UK exclusive edition containing a few remixes Rediculus did for Big Dutty Deeze and American exclusive artwork for his US edition. People are encouraged to follow Rediculus on Twitter, keep in touch with him on Facebook, check out his Bandcamp page and visit his website for more information and to keep up on the latest news with Rediculus and all of Knowledge Giving Birth Productions.
