Including a full mixtape from Trapstar and Logan Sama, this month’s Low Jams will definitely keep you busy until the sun comes out. Check it:
South London up-and-comer, Bonkaz, has been on the grime radar since dropping his first major single (‘We Run The Block’) just last year. Teaming up with Big Mike, ‘And Dat’ is a 3:15 homage to life in London as a younger, giving shout outs to D Double E, Krept and Konan (and dat) along the way.
Hype is still about for Kano’s latest album, Made In The Manor, and ‘This Is England’ reminds us why. One of the UK music scenes most exciting artists, Kano combines a properly feel-good beat with catchy bars that make England sound like the most amazing place ever. Taking a grand tour of the country, the video includes the best of Britain: Fry-ups, afternoon tea, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and hangs with D Double E.
Drizzy’s album is almost here (unless he moves it again) and this collab with PARTYNEXTDOOR makes the wait that little bit easier. The first track off PND’s next release, ‘Come And See Me’ is laid back future RNB at its finest. Next level chilled, this is a slow jam for late night relaxation.
A hit track from Future’s EVOL album, ‘Low Life’ was first performed a few months back on Saturday Night Live. With a video that sees The Weeknd and Future hanging out in dark warehouses and rolling around in a Mad Max style ride, this is another one for late night listens.
Two of grime’s heavyweights (and Face) get together for a boxing tag team that you definitely wouldn’t want to mess with. ‘BOX’ is more about laughs than it is anything else, but it’s still a catchy banger that’s bound to make “Box in your mout’!” a ting for at least a little while. Either way, this is begging for a Tempa T ‘Box On My Head’ mashup.
Superstar grime DJ and good friend of The Lowdown, Logan Sama has joined forces with London based streetwear brand, Trapstar, to create this incredible mixtape of mashups dropped this month by Hypetrak. Taking classic grime instrumentals and switching them up with new MCs, this is a 22 track masterpiece. Featuring Section Boyz, Newham Generals, Novelist, Kano and Stormzy, stop reading and start listening.
