Week…erm..25 I think?
ANYWAY! this week i thought “FUCK IT! Im gonna do a refix in 1 take!” and the result is this cover I did a while back by my HERO jack white from the white stripes.
As I said, the ENTIRE thing was done in a single take, as a way of respecting jacks views about keeping music restricted and raw.
now grime and hip hop fans might not understand this AT ALL, but songs like these are a massive part of who I am, and seeing as these are My refixes not yours, you’re just gonna have to deal with it aint ya! :p
well thats all from me! I hope you all had a verrrrry merry christmas and I’ll see you wonderful people next week!
in january i kicked off the year with an F64..and without further ado! here it is! i think im the only rapper to play an instrument on sbtv so far too which is pretty cool too.
Again i had to pull an all nighter for this this one, a solid 27 hours to be exact. Ive been preparing my ep which is going to go hand in hand with the refix download as well as well as getting a SUPER AWESOME top secret refix organized so it was the only way! but anyway, on with the refix…
this week its my my fave track on boy Example’s MASSIVE track ‘see the sea!’ first time Ive made something even remotely reggae ‘ish’ in my life (I wont lie, I had to do some guitar chord research online!) but aside from that, there was nothing too out of the impulse ordinary instrumentally.
Where it gets cool however is my play of the title!
my freestyle basically explains the mentality of MANY artists that have a bit of a buzz. A lot of new artists that have only begun to gain recognition always seem to act as if they’re the big guy that runs the show, but I explain that they are only the big shark when in the small fish bowl that is the underground scene. My interpretation of “seeing the sea” is that although im in a fish bowl, I am aware how far I still have to go: there’s a whole sea to conquer, i “see the sea” and am not satisfied by being a mere bigger fish in a small pool.
…im rambling arn’t i? lol apologies, i must sleep.
anyway i hope you enjoy!
Till next week…
yup…. were gonna need an upgrade in the photo-taking department thats for sure…
Oh my god what a week i’ve had. I’ll keep the moaning short: It was a DAMN long week, and on top of that, this took a WHILE! making the beat sound the same was easy, but adding a ton of intricate little guitar slides and that really pushed my creativity.
now I KNOW what you’re thinking, this is pretty short, but i can assure you the amount of time put into this easily compensates!
With the vocals it was really cool to revisit spitting fast as i havent done it in a while, nor have I spat this agressive for a while. Makes a nice change!
anyway thats all from me, be sure to suscribe and add me on twitter (im funny i promise)
loved this song so much i wanted to do a freestyle on it, but couldn’t find the instrumental anywhere, so i decided to make it myself with my weapon of choice, the american standard strat electric guitar!
This is the first in a line of free songs ill be putting out where i recreate the music as well as laying down my own lyrics on a bunch of songs, so look out for it!

As you may or may not know, when it comes to my music, im SUPER picky with who I collaborate with, its so bad infact that i can count on one hand the number of people that ive worked with on my guitar stuff and that includes engineers and producers too.
Enter Ed Sheeran, the 19 year old musical genius that does it ALL, singing, sonwriting,plays guitar, keys (a lil) and puts on one of the BEST one man shows I have ever seen. I reached out to him through the recommendation of Guy Chambers (who we’ve both been working with), sayng how much Id love to work and much to my surprise he was trying to get a hold of me for the same reason!
Although we couldnt be any more different, the simularites we share are crazy, its like where polar opposites of the same magnet lol.
when someone I click with this much comes along doing just one song isnt enough, and we’ve both agreed that a big batch of stuff is the only option. Its either that or the etire world collapses, or something of the same epic epicness.
Oh yeah!! he joined up to S.A.N.G.A (super awesome nerd genius army) too! and by joined i mean i added him and without him knowing :p
Anyway! Expect Awesome music on the way from the new super duo! watch this space!
Whats up people, another day another live show and this ones a biggun!
Im lucky enough to be headlining the ever famous “Water Rats” event tonight @ the underbelly in hoxton!
come on down and see me do what i do best first hand rather then just watching the vids!
My set starts at 10:30 and you can get directions HERE
this was on the 25th of Febuary at the guy chambers event called ‘Orgazmatron’ big up goldielocks for coming through to perform our song, and to faith sfx and jc adams for coming through to support!
MAKE SURE YOU WATCH TILL THE END! the crowd give me jokes at the end ha ha *apologies for the poor video/audio quality!*
A fair amount of people draw a lot of comparisons to my stuff and the arctics, much to my annoyance as you always want to be seen as a sole, individual entity, but even I can’t deny how much of a fan i am. If i had to pick a favorite band i couldn’t really say anyone else since i’ve played they’re albums the most in my itunes collection!
Although the official video hast been done yet, this is the new single from they’re amazing album humbug, hope you enjoy as much as I do!
