This week I'm totally digging....
Tinie Tempah - Pass Out
Greenwich based MC and Rapper Tinie Tempah or Patrick (his gangsta name) has produced a great record with 'Pass Out', smashing into the charts with a jungle and drum and bass beat. What makes Patrick or TT different is his use of clever lyrics, for example "I got so many clothes i keep’s em in ma aunts house" and "I bin Southampton but ive never bin to Scunthorpe". Scunthorpe are delighted with his big up and he's been invited there by the Mayor... lucky thing!
Chiddy Bang - Opposite of Kids
Straight out of Phillidelphia are Chiddy Bang, a hip-hop/rock band now reknowned for their sampling with Passion Pit, Radiohead and MGMT on this track. They've taken 'Kids' apart and for the melody and put a rap over it to great effect, and in even thrown an 'Asher Roth - College' reference in for good measure.. bet he's pleased.
Band of Skulls - Friends
This track is taken from the uber popular Vamp-fest movie that is New Moon: The Twilight Saga, and isn't it good? I have been listening to this track since November and not really knowing who sang it.. turns out it's a great British band hailing from Southampton.
Love, SGS xoxo
