Villain – Recommend Me [Free Exclusive Download]


Title: Recommend Me

Release Date: 29th January 2012

Available from:

Label: M.O.G. Recordings

No matter how exciting it may be for new cities – or even countries – to pick up on the sound, it’s nothing like hearing Grime being performed by a promising up-and-comer from the same area as Dizzee, Wiley and Tinchy Stryder.

Here to take on that legacy is Villain, an MC from the So Bow collective who earned a name as a young lyrical wonder within Mucky Wolfpack. Over the past year, he’s impressed industry heads at a number of reputable open mic events in his area, but he’s now ready to unveil a mixtape’s worth of material with M.O.G. Recordings; presentinghis capabilities in the booth. Entitled “Recommend Me”, Villain makes his solo debut with 12 tracks of relentless music.

Making it clear that he’s been brought up to appreciate the skippy end of the rhyming spectrum, the majority of the mixtape features Villain riled up into a lyrical frenzy. To those who’ve witnessed the damage he inflicts on Deja Vu FM sets, the sprawl of track selected for “Recommend Me” reflect his destructive presence behind the microphone. As he does so, Grime smashes like “Let Me Go”, “Big Mikee” and “Don’t Export That” as produced as  demonstrations of his writing ability.

Joined by the likes of Realz, Jay Willz and Jammin on the mixtape, Villain makes it a mission to present what makes him stand out as an MC, using both a combination of beats which Grime and Hip Hop fans will be very familiar with and refreshing new instrumentals. He might have some of his tracks complimented by the guests who join him, but the primary mission is to allow him to break out amongst a whole new generation of spitters. “Recommend Me” does so with ease, so it’s about time people did as is instructed in the title.

Grime will recognise the unmissable talent of Villain when “Recommend Me” drops on 29th January 2012.

Macca – Change [Free Download]

MindOfGrime is a grime blog, we eat, sleep and drink grime but every so often we get linked to a ‘hip hop’ tune that we really feel and today is one of those days

After seeing Stayfresh’ Macca post the link to his new track ‘Change’ we decided to give it a listen and are we glad we did, this track is something else, it is deep and meaningful with Macca talking about situations that have happened to him over the years over a very sombre production.

This track seems to be one that is personal to Macca, as he recites his lyrics you can almost hear the emotions in him, it’s a quality track and you can grab it today for free download (follow the soundcloud for download)

Bashy – The Crunchie Mixtape *Hosted By Slim* [Free Download]

Ashley Thomas more commonly known to us grime fans as ‘Bashy’ is a multi talented mc/recording artist/actor who has been doing his thing on the grime circuit for many years and boasts an acting appearance in lead uk movie ‘Shank’ to critical acclaim, many of us remember Bashy for his often harsh lyrics (take the track f**k wiley for example) and quirky bars and delivery but his latest offering ‘The Crunchie Mixtape’ is anything but.

Yes, the unmistakable Bashy delivery is there and yes Bashy can still drop clever lyrics, the only problem for us grime fans is the fact the Crunchie Mixtape is predominently filled with freestyles over bait hip hop beats and pop tracks.

John, Hustle Hard, Til Im Gone are all there plus freestyles to tracks by The Wanted and Dappy are thrown in for not so good measure, ok not every track is poor with ‘Angels Cant Fly’ alongside man of the moment Ed Sheeran being a particular stand-out but this just isnt the Bashy we know and love.
