Robots Wearing Sunglasses – 30 Rock (Alec Baldwin)

Robots Wearing Sunglasses – 30 Rock (Alec Baldwin)

You got the nerve to have them Robot Shades on. Am I only posting this song from T.O. duo Robots Wearing Sunglasses (Producer/Artist Jus Frais & MC iLLvibe) only to open with a badly forced reference to my favourite LL diss track? Of course not. Maybe. It’s highly possible. Regardless of my motivation, there’s something(…)

Moka Only – Airport 6

Moka Only – Airport 6

Goodness me, the production on Moka Only’s new album Airport 6 is god-damn delightful.

Propulsive drums, a super-catchy vocal and then 3 fun & well-executed verses – yes, yes and yes. Throw in a great Stuey Kubrick-helmed(…)

Teenburger – Rock the Discotech

Hey friendo, do you enjoy dope raps, wicked beats, razor-edge scratches and high-school-type hijinks? Well then you should be up on Teenburger. Rhymes by two of the most talented & charismatic MC’s in the biz Timbuktu & Ghettosocks, and beats & cuts by the legendary DJ Jorun Bombay. What more could you ask for? Not(…)
