"Simbreaker" is the second video release off the album Something You Feel, by rapper/producer Jai Nitai Lotus (pronounced Thai Nee-tie) . This gritty minute "no hook" anthem, produced by Simahlak, is a full body, frenetically-charged track packed with lo-fi guitars and manically psyched keyboard stabs.

Speech Debelle returns to the fray with the third single from her critically-acclaimed second album, Freedom Of Speech. One of the standout tracks from the album, "Live For The Message" was produced by Kwes and features a softly-spoken but defiant vocal from Speech in which she outlines why it's more important to be heard saying the right thing than to be heard - a message not just for the contemporary rap community but for a world obsessed with form over content.

Joining Speech for an epic refix are some of the cream of the UK hip hop community - Akala, DELS, Genesis Elijah, Jaja Soze, CONFUCIUS MC, Aks, Rain Freedom and Kasha Rae, as well as longtime collaborator Realism. Each of the artists takes the opportunity to deliver a message, making a kind of collage which gels their voices into a whole. Self Taught, meanwhile, hardens the beat a little and gives it a bit more hip hop snap.

Speech rose to fame with one of the most inspirational debut albums of the last few years, the Mercury Music Prize winning Speech Therapy, and her forthright and outspoken personality has endeared her to a worldwide audience. Aside from her musically compelling albums, her haunting lyrics feature on Bonobo’s ‘Sun Will Rise,’ (from Ninja Tune’s 20th anniversary XX boxset). She also hints at a playful relationship with the mainstream in her track “Spinnin',” which was adapted by Tinchy Stryder to become the first Olympic song of 2012. After a busy year in which Speech has released an album, toured all over Europe and fronted an acclaimed documentary on homelessness for the BBC, what better way could there to round things off than with a reminder of what a compelling presence the "Queen of UK Rap" (Clash) can be.

Kid Called Quest is getting ready to release his first solo album Put Your Head Phones On. The title of the album has a deeper meaning than most would anticipate. It is a call to experience the music on your own terms, to ignore the endless cycle of hype and gossip that consumes most young artist’s careers. Quest humbly states, "Listen to it for yourself and judge the album on your own thoughts." So go grab your headphones and get ready to enjoy the ride.

Moet had another one of their legendary Moet Rose Lounges in Miami recently and I was chosen to provide the soundtrack for the night. We were honoring T.I. for his new album and the taping of the finale of his reality show. This mix was recorded LIVE (no editing dawg!) at the Bâoli restaurant and features everything from trap to future bass to classic samples and R&B bangers.
