It’s currently (at the time of writing) up to number 18 in the Itunes Electronic chart, so lets try get it even higher!
Extra Curricular have been pushing their unique brand of soul-driven music on the UK underground live circuit since early 2009 and now serve up a new EP Wont Stay Down on Doorly’s Pigeon Hole this label with help from the boss himself.
The group combine soul with elements of rock, hip hop, and modern bass culture and are fronted by Thabo, with a live horn section, electric guitar, bass and drums all coming together in mesmerising live jams with boundless amounts of energy all supported by BBC 6Music, 1Xtra and more.
As well as an acapella version, the lead single by EC and Doorly is a dancefloor aligned version of the original that shines bright and kicks hard somewhere between jungle and dubstep. It’s a maximalist sound with rave inducing drums and classic rock rap vocals that will surely blow up on release.
‘Wont Stay Down’ the original grows out of raw guitar notes, swelling synth sounds and a fizzing electronics before an emotive voice sings about the troubles of being knocked down and bouncing back again. It’s a dense network of dubstep energy, live horns and saw tooth synths that combines the best of rock noise with bass energy.

“Gangstarr mainstay and renowned MC Guru is currently in a coma after suffering a cardiac arrest.
The world of hip hop has been shocked by reports that Gangstarr legend Guru is suffering from ill health. News emerged over the weekend that the MC had suffered a cardiac arrest, and had even lapsed into a coma.
These rumours have now been confirmed by DJ Premier. The other half of Gangstarr the turntablist phoned up an American radio station to confirm the news after speculation began over the rapper’s health.
Speaking to Satellite XM, Hip Hop Wired reports the Gangstarr legend as saying: “Guru IS in a coma and will go under surgery tomorrow afternoon.”
Details remain slim, with Guru’s family yet to make a statement on the rapper’s health problems.”
Taken from here. Very sad news. Best wishes to him, hopefully a speedy recovery and he can continue making dope tunes! GET WELL SOON GURU!!
UPDATE: “Guru is recovering from a successful surgery yesterday (March 1st), after suffering a massive heart attack over the weekend.
Sources close to Guru told AllHipHop.com that the rapper is doing “fine” and should make a full recovery, despite chatter on the Internet that the 43-year-old artist had died.
“Guru is alive and recovering from his surgery. Doctors are expecting a full recovery luckily,” a source told AllHipHop.com.
Guru’s partner DJ Premier also confirmed the news on his official Twitter page.”
