Konny Kon – All vinyl Soul Food Selection
With audiences and listeners loving the tracks and live shows (picture the whole audience singing along), and now legitimate soul LEGENDS, and renowned musicians coming out saying this is some of their favorite contemporary music – Big things are just around the corner we are sure…

Our long time friend and associate Jack Flash (former EOW world champ, etc etc) was recently asked by TED to host a talk. You will probably be aware of the wide ranging, educational and entertaining talks hosted around the world by TED (find out more here).
Here Flash chose to base his talk on his lyrics and how the audience and himself relate, using the format of reading and then dissecting each lyric in turn. An intriguing idea that I have seen few similar examples of, but really like the format.
The main basis is seemingly how he has matured as an artist, how he learnt to overcome his fears and really begin to create much more personal lyrics without the facile, cliche content much of the genre is defined by…. and as he mentions within, this is not a slight on others’ content – but more a recognition of his true voice coming through finally, after years of honing his skills. It’s great to see and much respect to him…
Take some time and elevate your mind a little….

Having been among the best of UKHH back in the day, this new venture with a full live band shows he is still pushing forward, experimenting and evolving. Performing live alongside some great musicians, and with The Real Demo on the decks the group has already been tearing up stages at venues and festivals all over the UK.
Previous collaborations include the likes of Bloc Party, Athlete, Jehst, Jack Flash, DJ IQ and many more. Keep a look out in the near future! and in the meantime you can listen to Savvy’s previous session at BBC’s Maida Vale…
Follow him on Soundcloud and via his Twitter, Facebook & the Saving Grace homepage here.
Underground producer/rapper Juna Cosmos has been getting some good press recently, you can now cop his latest offering ‘Mindless’.
Heavy bass-driven tracks and almost spoken-word rapping give this Trap/Alternative Hip-Hop release a gritty, raw and heavy feel. A bit monotonous for me, but sure to be a hit in the dingy packed out clubs.
You can follow his work here, via soundcloud here, and download the EP from here.
Here’s a brand new banger from UK Hip-Hop legend TY, an extremely talented independent artist who has been putting in work on the scene for a long time!

Without wanting to call this conscious Hip-Hop, but yeh, this is real talk not this Pop-Hop, watered down rubbish prevalent now; just like the song says… ‘I hear anger in music, but the message is hollow’
Turn this up, it’s a real beat…
