One for NYE or to get 2014 started the right way.

MR. E // TASTE THE DIFF’RENCE @ SOUNDWAVE CROATIA 2013 by Jamie Groovement on Mixcloud
A consistent stream of quality since its first release, Brighton’s Donky Pitch celebrate being ten releases deep with a free comp. It contains one track from each EP plus additional exclusives from Slugabed, Ghost Mutt, Lockah, LiL TExAS, V.C. & Keyboard Kid as well as a track from their latest signing Tokyo Hands. Check it on the Bandcamp embed below or here.
Moods came to my attention after hearing the track above – “Love is Real”. I immediately hit up his bandcamp and bought his Breakout EP, which is a stunning selection of field recording inspired moments in music.
Break Out EP by Moods
Get him on Soundcloud for regular drops of soul dripped hip hop.
New project from Manchester-based beat maker, Pro P. He combines his skills on the boards with the vocals of some of the best MCs from Manchester and beyond.
Munich-based Danny Scrilla drops this bass-heavy mix for URB.com. Heavily laden with tracks off of Om Unit’s mighty Cosmic Bridge label, along with a few dubplates that we’ll hopefully see get releases in the future. This goes hard.

The 2012 underground hip hop movement is being fronted by a number of dope artists, 17 year old Joey Bada$$ being one of them. This kid has come with the political aggression (without being too preachy) that seems to have been missing for a while. Well, now he’s back with another dope joint, produced by the legend that is MF Doom. I don’t need to say anymore. Just listen.
Ghost is back with a very personal project, relating to some of the toughest times life has to offer…
December 2011, Ghost, now a proud father of 2 boys (one 2 years old and the other 5 months old) heard the news that his love and partner had a rare form of cancer. Although treatable, ahead lies 6 months of treatment and
hopefully a happy outcome.
‘A Tale of Life in VI Parts’ was started when it became clear something might be wrong and tracks the emotional
journey of contemplating life whilst waiting for results. Taking inspiration from composer Philip Glass, Ghost takes
you to deep and dark places but maintains a strength of character throughout its 22 minutes. Heavily orchestrated strings, pianos and drums are the backdrop to the EP giving it a genuine cinematic feel.
