Video: Sureshot Symphony Solution - "Chair on the Ceiling"
Courtesy Nature Sounds.
The Sureshot Symphony Solution is the highly anticipated new project from San Francisco's DJ Sureshot (Sharpshooters/Status Breaks/Soundbwoy Reggae Breaks), blending hard-hitting hip hop beats seemlessly with lush live jazz-rock instrumentation. A perfect marriage of modern funk and psychadelic boom bap, SSS is a nod to classic 1960s/70s soul production, mixed with a heavy dose of future style.
To celebrate the launch of the project, we've got a limited-edition vinyl EP containing some of the songs that have grown the SSS buzz, including tracks with Coultrain (Platinum Pied Pipers/Hawthorne Headhunters), Moeses Soulright (SF battle champ MC), Ohmega Watts (Ubiquity), The Mighty Pope (OG Jamaican funk don and Northern Soul legend) and Myron & E (Now Again / Timmion).

With “God Save the King” Copywrite delivers another brutally honest record that reaches for new creative heights with all of the crazy punch lines, deep metaphors, true wordsmithing and all of the technical razzle dazzle anyone could ever ask for.

Make Me Worse is the brand new video by Kings Of The City. Described by one critic as "Wu Tang Clan meets The Beatles", KOTC blend rap, grime and rock in their own fresh style. The video co-stars actor Vas Blackwood, best known for his roles in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (in which he played Rory Breaker) Only Fools and Horses, The Lenny Henry Show, new film Mercenaries and many more. Directed and produced by burgeoning film company LEV Collective, the video tells a dark tale with a twist.
