Verb T & Pitch 92 – Good Evening

Hip Hop article, U.K HipHop Artist

In a Parisian record store, Verb T and Pitch 92 rummage through crates of records while on their French Tour for their album Good Evening. It is between these four walls that their musical union is apparent. An activity that highlights their creative collaboration allowing smooth cooperation due to their similar musical ideals.

With Pitch’s smooth beats, Verb T approaches confidently by forging a diverse range of rigorous bars, creating a lyrically skilled album. It was while Verb T was touring with the Four Owls and Pitch the Mouse Outfit that the two met, creating an instinctive alliance of minds and music tastes. From then, this musical encounter would create a relationship binding the pair and preparing them for their album Good Evening, a long and steady piece to come together after three years. While both at opposite ends of the UK, with Pitch from Manchester and Verb T from London, there was a constant sending back and forth of material, while communication was key. With beats influencing Verb T’s lyrics, their parallel styles fuse together creating tracks of a high-end reflection. Each piece can be seen to highlight their cooperativeness yet their solitary artistic labor.

A smooth long-term project where inspiration derived from their precision to the craft. When asked how Verb T’s songwriting has developed through the years, his answer was simple ‘The theory of 10 000 hours’, comparing to his talent of emceeing. He added, ‘by pushing yourself to get better you are always going to learn new things, as I have never got to a point where I feel I am happy and I cant improve’. Yet his confidence is more eye-catching than ever, with his new material shining with skill.

The album carve’s its way to success in the UK scene with some influential talent featured. From the likes of Jehst, Ocean Wisdom, Confucius MC, DRS to name a few, the choice of emcees added to the album derived from both their unique associations’ in the scene. Pitch 92, predominantly known for his involvement in the Mouse Outfit, and Verb T a pioneer in modern emceeing, both involved different musical associations to show their names on the album.

While beatmaker and wordsmith have been busy wrapping up the album, they have already been crafting away at their next one. When asked how they are marking themselves from Good Evening, they exclaimed that they were paying attention to the final sound. The two are making textured music for sound systems during their live sets, which can only sound far too promising. With this talented debut from both musicians, their next album is already impatiently awaited.

Summer Reminiscing with Maxwell Owin

U.K HipHop Artist

While summer draws to a close and winter takes over. We take a look back to the invigorating essence of summer. A big part of that for the versatile artist Maxwell Owin is Brainchild Festival : a get-together amongst his contemporaries and friends at a festival that they have been representing since the dawn of it’s days.

Photo31_27A.jpg

At this weekend fuelled of artistic endeavours, Maxwell Owin is a common name to be heard, and it is here that he reminisced through his music career. After playing his third set of the weekend, this DJ came and sat on one of the hand-made benches crafted from wooden pallets while he caught his breathe from his DJing performance for SE Dub Collective. This musician has quickly become a backbone in South London’s music scene by creating his own unique sounds within the electronic music genre. A musician who cunningly inserts his stylistic creations collaborating with many contemporary names in the music scene, has a capacity to adapt with different musicians in an astounding manner.

His broad musical knowledge, technical and theoretical can be heard through his production abilities. This extensive musical awareness, developed through growing up, while he managed to grasp an interest within most music genres hands-on while collaborating with a diverse amount of artists. From a young age Maxwell Owin was exposed to a variety of different musical tastes which would then continue to develop through his connections. Growing up in Oxford he was exposed through family, friends and his own curiosity to a lot of classical music, old jazz ,as well rock. This would create the foundation of his interest in music that he would push throughout his education and would be pursued in his music GCSE’s.

He would first put his own mind to creation while using DAW producing software, prominent and profound moment where suddenly the ideas in his head oozed into an effortless flow. This passion would be the beginning of a long progression in his journey of becoming a DJ. Whilst a teenager his music taste evolved during the birth of Dubstep which aroused new musical excitement which would prime his own taste with his adoration of Jazz and rock, to more chilled out electronic vibes.

It was then that he retreated to London where his music ability would flourish while he was immersed in a rich diverse group of individuals who all had the same intentions: pushing the music scene in a new, unique direction. This young and fresh musician would meet the likes of Ragofoot and Jackal Wyfried who would introduce this producer into their talented social sphere and also involve in many creative musical projects. Ragofoot and Jackal Wyfried participated in the first sessions where Steez first began in a Pub South of the river. Here, Maxwell Owin would tie-in by doing sets and meeting many artists. Steez, a South-London collective composed of bands, DJ’s, poets, merging all their creative abilities in this night would encompass many of the musical inspirations that would drive Maxwell Owin in the music scene. This blend of musical tastes would seep through into this musician’s own talent creating his exclusive genre. Steez would be the beginning of many collaborations but also friendships. It would be the origin of his alliance with MC Pinty. Looking back, Maxwell Owin recalls this debut of his music career with a ‘weird nostalgia’. Maxwell Owin’s musical journey has varied, from playing in warehouses with 2-step garage under MC Pinty’s jumpy bars which would proceed to meeting up with different artists encompassing many different genres and sets. These alliances would allow him to tackle his devotion of all his diverse musical tastes. From working with his colleague Izzy Bizu he worked on more chilled-out vibes, to then being part of SE Dub Collective where Dub was able to take a new arousing form of movement conceiving a new name for the genre in London.

Maxwell Owins role in Steez became more and more prominent as he supported this new musical platform, constantly stimulating new musical talent. While he played in Rotterdam aside Steez at the beginning of his career as well as supporting Brainchild festival from the start, his position as a multi-talented artist ingrained itself as his alliance with Steez solidified. This love for supporting artists not only comes from making music but also his investment in different mediums such as radio shows or his immersion in South London’s music scene by devoting a lot of time working with Yam Records, a record shop in Peckham exposing independant labels.
Since being overtly exposed to South-London’s current artistic scene, his hunger to grasp many different musical atmospheres derives from his inspiration to ‘challenge people’. He explains that by mastering different genres and altering them to create a new taste of music and putting it out to the public, it allows a certain drive in his musical creations. This musical passion can be observed in his performances. While doing his sets he enters a personal trance where each transition into a new track becomes an esthetic game for mind and ear. This derives from his experience of ‘DJing to empty rooms and not looking at the audience’. This attention to creating unique senses by mixing specific tracks comes from his foremost musical inspirations. Burial, being his most favored producer who allowed him to gain his interest in London on a musical and personal level added with his involvement with Steez encouraging him to fuse Jazz into his productions can illustrate his tracks once listened to. His music blends electronic and acoustic on different levels which Owin said rooted from ‘working with love and respect to other people’s craft’. This once again presents Maxwell Owin as a DJ whose work is established through different relationships. He is constantly working with individuals ‘I see them at gigs, house’s I’m always thrust into company especially in Steez’. This cohesive core and friendships that is created through the musical medium allows a certain openness which is identified through his work due to the nature of improvement and improvisation. By ramming different genres in his work he is not one for pigeon-holeing his music, instead he works through ‘phases’. From mixing Jazz, to garage, to his recent collaboration with Jamie Isaac where his work can be seen as futuristic. This multi-talented artist’s work can be densified into his new EP that was out the 8th of September. Here you may see an array of genres and artists that he has compressed into a musical project that describes his London journey.

A.F.R.O

U.S Hip Hop Artist

This 19 year old who has recently hit the Hip Hop scene by storm. With his incredible high speed vocals blended with his extended diverse vocabulary he has come as a surprise in the music scene. Viewed as the mystic offspring of a musical era that has come to an end, he made a special appearance with this US old school Hip Hop at Hifi. This young soul takes us back to an older generation of Hip Hop that is hard to come by nowadays. With his old school drift it is impossible to not guess his influences and idols in music. While being discovered at a rap contest by RA the Rugged Man and within so little time hitting the media  with his mature knowledge of how to spit bars, a musical gem has been discovered. He was soon mentored by RA the Rugged Man and flown to New York to meet some of the most renowned figures from Hip Hop’s golden era such as DJ Premier and Kool G Rap. Since then he has been elevating the quality of Hip Hop’s status and demonstrating to the younger generation as much to the older, that there is still a place for this style of music that has had such a big impact on the world we live in today.

When asked the differences between US and UK hip hop and its reception, A.F.R.O described Europe to be a whole more energetic force. With a lot more movement and upheaval from fans at his gigs compared to the mostly head-bopping from the US this could clearly be seen from Hifi’s gathering. While A.F.R.O performed with Marco Polo, the crowd revelled in this sous-genre of Hip Hop that is practically unknown from the current fresh, young crowds. With his husky, deep voice that vibrates the whole room as he raps with exhilarating and researched vocabulary this rapper who is described as an ‘old soul’ leaves the crowd on edge. While he spits on mellow beats then breaks into lunatic freestyles this new head is reviving the old scene with genuine down-to-earth intentions. When asked what he wanted future Hip Hop to look like his ideal was to ‘just keep touring, keep meeting his fans and keep making music’. This shows the real ambition of his making music as a remedy. While indicating the impact of Hip Hop throughout his life starting with the guidance of his parents initiating him to the likes of NAS and Biggie at the age of 6/7 he was being submerged with this old school material that would have an effect on his musical persona. What stuck to this young individual was the roots of Hip Hop, the soul infused boom bap beats that he would soon interpret and modify to his own unique taste. A.F.R.O has been able to carve a career for himself while working with his favourite ‘O.G’S’, which as he said he is able to incorporate their influence in his music while working with on a personal level. With his plans for the future a new musical TV show for VH1 as well as  he is currently working on his next album featuring the likes of Pete Rock etc, his presence in the music scene is not to be dismissed.

Cecil B. Digestive

U.K HipHop Artist

Cecil B. Digestive belongs to London’s South-Eastern collective bringing innovation with a fresh new style  to the Hip-Hop scene. In the heart of the South East is where an array of musicians have been thriving off each other, exchanging ideas and working together to create a rich, ingenious musical hub. Cecil B. Digestive is a perfect example of this productive process by how he works with it enabling it to flourish continuously. Down in New Cross, contemplating on his musical and self identity  with the help of a large coffee and rollie Cecil B. Digestive gives us an insight on the exclusive musical environment in which he lives.

IMG_0904

For the last 6 years this individual has been busy creating new material from a cluster of different stylistic traits. His investment to the music scene first started with STEEZ. In 2011, Luke Newman created a monthly event to involve an array of rythmic talents. At first it was a platform for the South Londoners to inter-connect in their South East London venue for an Open MIC. A wide diversity of talents were to thrive from their acoustic performances to rap battles in this unique environment. Being involved throughout it’s time, when Luke left STEEZ a year and a half ago, Cecil B. Digestive along with Slam The Poet and Cozmas The Melodist took over, allowing STEEZ to progress.
These musical genres being a recurrence throughout Cecil’s life as his upbringing withheld a cluster of contrasting styles. His parents tangled in music themselves, his father a drummer and his mother owning a vast taste in music such as punk and rock. This produced from an early age a child who was alert to sound. This helped determine his thirst for participating somehow in music. Freestyling was seen as an apparent beginning due to his fondness in messing around and as he said ‘I’m good at swearing’. His freestyling commenced 6 years ago and since has been a process of recording in different chilled-out habitats, mostly from homemade studios in bedrooms of friends and acquaintances. Cecil B. Digestives favoured way of bringing forth new material is by working with various producers creating different musical mindsets.

IMG_0905

This musician is renowned for collaborating with many different artists, mostly from MVC but even while creating tracks on a solo basis many different experiments have been undertaken. His first songs have been released under ‘Danke’  which then evolved to ‘Cecil B. Digestive’, a name which appealed and corresponded to his personality- not taking yourself too seriously. It is under his most recent name that he is associated with MVC. Mad Vibez Collective can be seen as one of Cecil B’s most renowned musical participations. Along with Wookz, together they created a unified crowd of individuals sharing the same beliefs and attitudes that they would express through their music. It is described as a mentality, holding it’s own persona. This idea started in 2012 where they would perform for their own enjoyment at parties but at the same time use this medium to create their own banner. MVC is described as a scene, not to be mistaken as a label. It features a variety of politically inspired individuals such as Wookz, Slam the Poet, Footshooter and Cozmas the Melodist who express their feelings and experiences of their late teenage years to present of growing up in a dishonest and unethical generation. Mad Vibez Collective along with their collaborators along the way use a very honest and demonstrative image of their morals and aims in their music as it is ‘not fashion but art’, something that has seemed to got lost in recent Hip Hop. These musicians prefer to be performers rather than use social media which is a minor medium for them. Personal interaction through nights out and events have attracted most attention to this collective from performing on radio on Sicknotes FM or performing at festivals such as Brainchild. Events organized by Cecil B. Digestive benefit not only Mad Vibez Collective but also many other artists reviving London’s spoken word scene. These events include the notorious STEEZ and also Feed the Fishes creating vibrant nights where imaginations and talent flow, becoming a platform for abundance.

Cecil B. Digestive’s rapping style varies depending on the collaboration . Between Ecstasy Wank & The Monocle Tramp which incorporates a jazz infused more traditional boom to the bap feel or even while incorporating his resounding and clear bars and melody which you can catch on Footshooter’s latest E.P or on Sofar Sounds where his talent as a freestyler is clear and undeniable.

His talent as a political and artistic MC can be seen with The Audioters, a major part of his latest labour. Along with Ragofoot this collaboration and it’s outcome took them both by surprise. By choosing to attempt a collaboration together while jamming and sharing new ideas they created 4 original tracks with Rago producing the beats and Cecil on the vocals. In this relaxed environment, Cecil B. Digestive on a stage MIC expressed his inner political and social thoughts in a raw, aggressive manner, his lyrics revealing a part of honesty in the echo of punk behaviour. With such a smooth immersion stylistically their 4 tracks that were created soon became 17. The Audioters are an example of this clear mix n’ match of talents between these young musicians of the South. When asked who Cecil B. Digestive’s musical inspirations derived from it was made clear that it was the local geniuses by throwing each other new material constantly in different genres allowing new inspiration and booming of new abilities.

The future holds many new ideas to come at an evolving pace for Cecil B. Digestive and his entourage. He spoke about a potential future label for more control on their music and artists for further liberation. But for the moment more ‘fucking round the bedroom’ for the collective separately and together is to continue. So get yourself down to the next STEEZ in London to gain a real sense of Cecil B. Digestive’s artistic work.

Finn Foxell

U.K HipHop Artist

This young blossoming M.C from Shepherds Bush is currently participating to London’s cluster of artistic musicians, renovating and expanding on different genre’s that the 21st century has to offer. Finn Foxell is striving to give his input into our eras genre of hip hop.
In paddington Street Garden’s after college, on his preferential bench he sat down to meditate on his journey in the music industry while billing and meditating over a zoot.
His enthusiasm to create his footprint in the Hip Hop scene started at a tender age. Growing up with London’s significant scene led to multiple influences stemming all the way from the general playground to the more personal tastes such as his brother. Finn has always had an involvement in the music scene with different associations on different levels. From rapping to Eminem and Lil Wayne at school from the age of 7 leading him to play around and create his first beat with his brother at 8. Always being in a sphere of musical influence, this involvement was ensured at the age of 14/15 when his friend who owned a home studio invited Finn Foxell to come and mess around with the MIC. This convenience led to him conjuring up his first tracks on the spot. This gave rise to the first songs that would be later added onto his E.P, including Lovely Day, 15-40 and Need more rizlas generating the idea to create his first project: the E.P that would come together as Introvert. These first tracks were freshly recorded directly in Parallels studio with Finn ‘summarizing the vibe’. While he came to grips with these creations which were initiated as a laugh, he tried to push this activity as it had the potential to be something with a future. Using this musical obsession as an outlet from college and other responsibilities, he was and still is able to use this as a passionate hobby that can only have positive outcomes.

Introvert came together naturally, becoming a project within itself. This E.P uploaded onto SoundCloud, bringing in more success than anticipated became the trigger setting him off onto his journey.
Since this first project, Finn Foxell has continued to release a number of individual singles through the medium of SoundCloud and Bandcamp. Seasons has been the most favoured receiving a large amount of positive feedback with it’s response exposing this M.C and his individuality. With a rising number of beats being made known to the public different sources were used to gain publicity. The use of radio stations has been a majorly new but successful medium either just for playing his tracks on the airwaves such as Radio Radar or making himself known through interviews such as Climax Radio.

This young M.C has also appeared on London’s stages for his first show at IAMNEXT event at RichMix, Shoreditch in an unexpected way where his fellow friends House Of Pharoes got him up on stage to do a hazy performance. This experience gave him a thirst for the possibilities that this passion for establishing himself had to offer.
Amongst those musically and artistically involved a natural habit of helping to propel each other is a reality. In the Hip Hop scene amongst those starting out, many connections are constructed through sub-genres connecting through different ends of London or through the medium of the media such as SoundCloud. Sam Wise has collaborated many times with Finn Foxell, both creating an coinciding with one another creating a fusion of ideas and vibes in their songs. This alliance is an example of this effect on flourishing artists, as both then met up in a home studio in Streatham for a couple of hours meditating over some zoots and playing around with beats and bars while forging ideas.  Dc Scribbla is another example of this word-smiths coalitions, being close to home illustrating the idea of ‘everything being all so connected’. Even the material for beats or the videos shot are through acquaintances enabling all these young amateurs with their various goals to become part of the prosperous artistic brains of the next generation.

Finn Foxells music has allowed itself to develop into its own individual style in an incredible natural fashion. With the most breezy chilled out vibes the listener can evaporate with the thoughts of this M.C like the smoke evaporating from his spliffs. He has incorporated this lifestyle of music in a social and diverting manner but also as a way to escape by himself, for as he expalined: ‘I am an introvert’. Finn Foxells distraction from life is to meditate in his bubble, chilling and contemplating on life which inspires his next lyrics. This sequence of pastimes produces his songs which are slowly forming a set of quality Hip Hop tunes. At the moment most of his singles are starting to have a more professional way of being revealed to the public. Gradually he has started to release tracks instead of ‘dropping them’ by sending them to different intermediates to obtain an intensified effect.
With time the music is taking on a more experienced approach as more thought is being put in to develop himself as an artist. On a musical level his style has been very much established however he has talked about playing around with more electronic and trap instrumentals on certain beats mixing with his literature, ‘mad expressing’ to innovate to a certain extent. There are plans in the future to extend his authenticity by producing himself personally instead of using random producers.
This artist is working hard to create many fresh projects due this year allowing him to bloom into a prominent Hip Hop M.C on the scene. Many projects that he has in store will enable him to get more coverage such as obtaining more live gigs, printing a limited selection of vinyls  and even putting his music potentially on Itunes, the idea of ‘taking it further’. So watch out for his future visuals on his track Posture coming out in spring capturing his distinct image, keeping it as conceptual as possible as well as the hint of his next E.P to be out this year.
Finn Foxell has been going at his own pace juggling the trials of growing up with his passion for succeeding in the music industry and has had immense positive reactions which is only a sign that this 16 year old is ahead of his time: not only is he ready for the Hip Hop scene but the Hip Hop scene is ready for him.

Plane Aggy 

U.K HipHop Artist
In the U.K at a time when so many new artists are generating new abilities , sous-genres and the U.K public is embracing this culture, it is an extremely interesting place to establish yourself. Plane Aggy, a British M.C decided to do the opposite and move to France to allow the French to discover what U.K Hip Hop he had to offer. From a young age Plane Aggy moved to and fro between London, Edinburgh and France. It was in Edinburgh that this young teen began playing around writing bars for his own amusement. At the age of 18 he began to try to involve himself in the Hip Hop scene. However this turned out to be harder than planned. At the time this amateurs experience with Edinburgh’s Hip Hop scene was far from positive. The lack of opportunities to perform proved to be a large barrier. When he did find events he ended up being the black sheep and not fitting in. In a scene that he described as cliquey he found his regional dialect a major set-back. Although he had a rocky début these experiences did not hold him back. They had no negative impact on his motivation and dream to forge his way into the industry. This sense of Hip Hop hostility in Edinburgh is what pushed him to follow the direction towards Bordeaux.

In a city where open MICS are unfamiliar, M.C’s of quality are hard to come by and the general love of classic Hip Hop is rare, Bordeaux was going to be a mission. Where the opportunities are slimmer to make yourself noticed, you have to have an intense drive to succeed. Plane Aggy who was starting from afresh to establish himself encountered difficulties from the start. This M.C explained to me that the French who are generally ignorant to pure U.K Hip Hop tend to listen exclusively to U.S Hip Hop. French Hip Hop in the last few years has had generally an increase of influence from America’s Hip Hop. At first Plane Aggy ‘s Hip Hop was unfamiliar to the French ears but soon he conquered their interest. His musical influences may have helped with gaining his recognition. Plane Aggy grew up to classic U.S Hip Hop artists such as Eminem, Nas, Mac Miller. These artists can be found in his music with his preferred 90’s BPM. A major reason for this M.C’s increase of entourage is the use of 21st centuries technology. His social medias have helped him to grow a large following. With time, work and determination this English artist gained more and more recognition for his work. With more material going out, more gigs and interest came in. This made Plane Aggy’s name become familiar to the Bordelais. While making his mark in Bordeaux more opportunities arose. Plane Aggy throughout his musical career musical has had a clear evolution of style in his tracks. He has messed with darker songs with gloomy lyrics to his more representative oldskool, jazzy, upbeat tracks which incorporate his personal ideas, concepts and views. He is now currently experimenting for his next project with more trippy, dysfunctional characteristics. This trippy change will be found in his just released album ‘Distortion’ which made it’s appearance in October. This “mixed up”, “incoherent ” project was created strangely at his Grandma’s house one alcohol-fuelled evening and as he described “in a comfy chair”. This Tyler-the-Createrish music has been accompanied with a “clock work orange” themed video. So try to pick up this E.P for this strange concoction. I asked this rapper if he had to focus on altering anything technical to please his audience. As Plane Aggy raps in English to a French crowd the major problem arises of the language barrier. To ease these difficulties he pays attention to different aspects to engage the listener as much as possible. He involves the French public lyrically by imposing subtitles on a few of his videos which helps the foreign public to feel closer to the artist on a technical level. This M.C pays close attention to flow to give a greater sensation to the listener of the emotions he is trying to get through. The use of collaborations with singers who add melodies can create a similar effect by adding anther source of energy in the song. These create a unique way of rapping as an artist which permits Plane Aggy to live a singular experience. His opinion on being a U.K artist is as positive one even with the problems that he may come across. For him it is “fun, cool crowds with possibilities to develop from city to city”. So if you are ever in France try and catch him around Bordeaux or other cities. Plane Aggy since starting his trade has seen “an increase of interest from the French for the culture with it bringing in new heads”. With Paris’s interest in London’s underground Hip Hop scene, who knows where France’s Hip Hop will lead.

However similar this song can be found to Walkin’, it can not be denied that this rapper knows how to kill it. The lyrics, flow and instrumental fit together perfectly with the same intensity. Dirty Dike who produced the track with the sample from Cypress Hill – ‘Ain’t going out like that’, created a melody that has brought out Ocean Wisdoms talents to perfection.
