Is there a more explosive, bass-riddled groups of MCs than Manchester’s all-star LEVELZ crew? I think not. BTW, yes, I’m still here. Life gets in the way of blogging. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Who is Richie Brains? I don’t have any fucking idea. Doesn’t matter who, or what, he/she/it are because the music does ’nuff talking.
The Levelz crew might be my favorite thing going right now.
Chimpo is a maniac. A lovable one, but a maniac none-the-less. I’d like to party with him.
A new Chimpo EP, Backslang always means a unique blend of bass music styles, heavy beats, lyrical wit….and maybe some monkey symbolism. He hits on all of those points with Backslang. I especially love Sneaky Cheeky…so good. You can listen to all four tracks and buy the EP HERE.
When you love Manchester MCs and bass music but HATE vowels, you end up with the LVLZ vs FBRCLV MX from Jonny Dub. Mr. Dub is a resident DJ over at Fabric and he put together this best-of-the-Manchester-MC-crew mix to highlight the LVL room 2 takeover on the 22nd of May. It’s gonna be a […]

MC DRS’ second full length EP, Mid Mic Crisis, just dropped on Marcus Intalex’s Soul:R HERE and I am fucking stoked! I am a full-on, unapologetic MC DRS evangelist. I’ve supported every project he’s been a part of because 1. they’re great and 2. he works his ass off for his craft. It isn’t hyperbole […]
Fox just released his solo debut, the Shiddleywiddleyskangdangdiddleywoi EP (that’s a mouthful),on Estate Recordings with Chimpo supplying the beats. You might know Fox best for his work with My Nu Leng on the massive Masterplan and his turn on Claude Von Stroke’s Oakland Rope. However, he’s LONG been a staple of the Manchester MC community…maybe […]
Just a preview of the bass line from Fracture and Chimpo’s From Early (out now on Metalheadz) grabbed my brain and gave it a good shake. I had to hear the whole fucking thing, but alas, I couldn’t until it was released today. Now I own a copy and and I’ve already smashed down my […]
