Continuing to stake their claim as one of the leading labels releasing consistently creative high grade hip-hop in the UK, AssociatedMinds present the brand-new video for Metabeats's 'EyeSeeYou' featuring Dubbledge.

The video, directed by the rising start Mike Tyler, perfectly translates the pearls of wisdom on racism, the media and UK police profiling that Edge drops so originally throughout the track and is a must see for anyone who appreciates hip-hop with class. We hope you enjoy.

The single is also out today (05/03/2012) and available worldwide at all the usual places.

MP3: Constant Deviants - "Skyscraper"


MP3: Constant Deviants - "Skyscraper"

Courtesy Audible Treats.

As M.I. and DJ Cutt ready the release of their forthcoming LP, Diamond, the duo known as Constant Deviants, continue to deliver on their promise of non-album singles with their latest single, "Skyscraper." On this track, DJ Cutt hands off production duties to Australian producer Debonair P, who laces the track with mellow acoustic guitar riffs, complemented by a perfectly dusty drum break. This song, along with a collection of others produced by Debonair P, will be released on a 12" effort titled The Allnighter EP in mid-March.

Although, fans may feel odd about hearing a Constant Deviants track not produced by DJ Cutt, they need not worry; the Baltimore/Brooklyn duo has been building with the Debonair for years now. "We've been building a relationship with him since we first started selling vinyl in '09," explains M.I. "He's a dope producer and definitely has a lock on the '90's sound."

The song title, "Skyscraper," and song concept came from the vibe that M.I. caught listening to the beat. "I just had the feeling of being on top a skyscraper," says M.I., "overlooking the confusion going on in the city." And while the casual listener might assume that feeling would lead to a serene track, "Skyscraper," as with all of Constant Deviants' music requires a closer listen. "Even at the top, you're still part of the chaos around you," M.I. remarks, and drives that sentiment home throughout the track with lines like, "Bodymore, Murdaland, man we got this/ Pop, pop, bang, bang/ Shoot em up mobsters/ Cops 'n robbers/ .45s, Glocks and choppers.”
