Mr Hudson - O2 Academy Oxford


Yesterday I travelled up to Oxford to check out Mr Hudson on tour. I had seen him at The Scala back in March which left me wanting to see more. The venue in Oxford was quite an intimate one, making the performance that little bit more special

I got to say, Mr H didn't disappoint, his band and the brilliant Joy Joseph are tight, the sound was incredible.

The gig saw performances of some new material set to be featured on 'Straight No Chaser' which is due to drop August 3rd.

Here are some of my favourites;

Drake - Best I Ever Had Remixes



With over half a million downloads of his So Far Gone Mixtape I think its safe to say that Drake has got a big fan base, it seems that this isnt just exclusive to you and I but some of the biggest RnB & Hip Hop Artists are feeling him too.

This week has seen 2 remixes of one of the stand out tracks from the so far gone mixtape, Best I Ever Had. These are in addition to the Swizz beats, Busta Rhymes and
Tearria Marie that have hit the net over the past couple of months.

Best I Ever Had Remix 1 Featuring R.Kelly

Best I Ever Had Remix 2 Featuring Tank

Best I Ever Had Remix 3 - Featuring Busta Rhymes

Best I Ever Had Remix 4 - Featuring Swizz Beats


Best I Ever Had Remix 5 - Featuring Tearria Marie


I know im feeling some of these remixes more than others, what do you think? Favourites?

Wale - Chillin - Live

Wale - Chillin' Live in Minneapolis - ATFMPLS.COM from Justin Andert on Vimeo.



Too often you see Artists go through the motions when performing and I think a lot of it can be down to the venue and set up. Above is an example of the opposite, any Emcee with a live band for me is a great combination, Wale Kills it here on his 'Attention deficit' tour of the states

I gave you the Chillin Mp3 a few weeks back now, if you havent got it yet, do yourself a favour and get it here now.

Lil Wayne Ft Juelz Santana - After Disaster


Wayne & Juelz go in on this one. The subject matter being hurricane Katrina and 9/11 ensures that the passion and flow is on point.

Get It Here

Maino Ft T-Pain & Young Jeezy - All The Above Remix


This track is absolutely huge!

The album version was just Maino & T-Pain, the remix sees Jeezy jump on and damn, he kills it. Play it loud and enjoy.

The 6emeia project

Today I had a bit of time to catch up on a few blogs that I read & 2 or 3 of them all featured the 6emeia project. After seeing a few snaps I had to do a bit of digging and I have to say I really like their work, not only is it simple but extremely eye catching.

To give you a bit of info on what 6emeia is all about I took this from their website;

The 6emeia project was created and developed by the artists Anderson Augusto, also known as SÃO, and Leonardo Delafuente, also known as Delafuente. The duo live in the Barra Funda neighborhood of São Paulo where they began the project with the purpose of changing and transforming daily life.

The duo's objective is to modify the means within which we all live, proposing a new way to view things by reflecting upon themes generated through creative and unusual works. Such modifications are made by painting storm drains, light posts, manhole covers and any other object which makes up the urban scenario.

With the painted storm drains, a new type of communication is proposed between art and the city as well as between art and the residents. Art then becomes within the reach and at the service of everyone. By looking with care at the most forgotten and indifferent objects, one can take in art in a new way. The painted storm drains are like colorful drops falling into animmense ash-colored canvass.



Maxwell – BLACKSummers’Night

Today the artwork for the much anticipated album release from Maxwell hit the internets along with a track listing.




  1. Bad Habits
  2. Cold
  3. Pretty Wings
  4. Love You
  5. Stop the World
  6. Fist Full of Tears
  7. Help Somebody
  8. Playing Pussum
  9. Phoenix Rise


After doing a bit more research it seems this album is part of a 3 album project with the 2nd and 3rd album supposidely dropping in quick succession. There was a playback of the album this week at Sony BMG over in Kensington and from what I have read from the people who listened we can really look forward to the album being classic maxwell.

There are strong rumours that Maxwell will be touring Europe October/November time. Exciting stuff!
