Scott Melker: Binders Full Of Women (Mitt Romney Remix)
Mitt Romney's incredibly strange comment regarding "Binders Full Of Women" has gone wildly viral and led to countless internet memes. As far as I know, I was the first to immortalize the ridiculous quote in a song, which I put out yesterday. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you - BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN (MITT ROMNEY REMIX)... Political Trap Music
The collision of two Norwich based lyrical giants DPF (Son Records) and Reds (Chronic Redeye) has produced some of the most exciting hip hop to come from the flatlands of the East in recent times. With a style owing as much to dancehall reggae as it does 90s hip hop, the duo have shown their versatility with a string of EPs and mixtape appearances that range from the dark and melancholic 'Soul Sellers EP' to the summer cheekiness of 'Your Mum Loves Reggae.' Their work has led to performances on the same bill as legends such as Souls of Mischief, RA the Rugged Man, Task Force, Klashnekoff , Rodney P, Black Twang and Phi Life Cypher to name a few.
This latest offering is another display of the explosive outcome when DPF's incredible flow and effortless delivery combine with the gritty wordplay and deep imagery from Reds - A slice of hardcore hip hop packed full of quotable bars that bangs from front to back. This full length release cements the name Soldjasoulz as true underground representatives and shows once again why both emcees have achieved critical acclaim in their own right, with DPF's 2008 solo album reaching the HHC list of top releases for that year and the same publication calling Reds ''the real deal.''
Guest productions on 'Soulz of the Storm' come courtesy of the one and only Tricksta as well as long time collaborator DJ I.C from the Hoodlem camp, however the bulk of production this time round is handled by Reds. His return to the boards sees him serving up his own brand of deliberately stripped down, yet infectious riddims based around hypnotic synths that set the tone perfectly for the lyricists to do their thing. Underground U.S legend Main Flow even shows up to bless a Reds production with a killer verse for the banger 'Night Breed,' a testament to the grind these cats are on. Soldjasoulz are running things in their own lane with a unique style, bags of talent and a healthy amount of cynicism for pop rap industry fakers. This is some heavyweight music, don't sleep...

O'Grime drops their new video "JUICE" from their upcoming LP "FUR COATS AND UZIS." Directed by Giancarlo Loffredo, this video captures an escapade of sexual eeriness that transcends perfectly into O'Grime's neo gothic trap sounds. From what O'Grime told me, the director did the video first before hearing the song, and just had his nightmares transform in a creepy sexual reality.

In the world of opera, a libretto is the blueprint, a written text that anchors the performance. In the same vein, The Black Opera’s upcoming album Libretto: Of King Legend will prove to anchor the sound and message of The Black Opera. Libretto: of King Legend is a detailed tale, told from the perspectives of both the incredible King and his loyal statesmen.
As an aperitif to The Black Opera’s upcoming album “Libretto: Of King Legend”, MMG is offering the first leak from the project: “Balcony.” A deep, warbling bass line and 80’s coke cinema synths (courtesy of producer Astronote) grace the tracks sonic backdrop. The mysterious vocalists with “black hoodies on no matter what the forecast” fill the pocket nicely with the double entendres and charisma that has garnered them a faithful following.
Libretto is the third and final installment of the three part introduction: THE BLACK OP: ERA I. Libretto creates a musical umbrella which encompasses the [r]evolutionary theme of their first installment Overture and the charismatic spirit of their second installment EnterMission., all while delving into the mind, heart and bloodline of The Black Opera.
Whether the low-end or the lyrics draw you in, The Black Opera is ready to introduce its newest installment: Libretto: Of King Legend. Available from Mello Music Group October 30th.
