As part and parcel of his huge push for sales and reach of his debut record Disc-Overy, UK hip hop king-to-be Tinie Tempah has given us the opportunity to push him even more with this amazing contest. At stake for the winner? The above “Disturbing London” tee shirt designed by Tempah, a copy of the record Disc-Overy, and to top it all off, a $100 iTunes gift card for you to spend on whatever you want (may we suggest work from Ellie Goulding or Labrinth, both collaborators on Disc-Overy?).

Five years strong, the kids of Brooklyn-based and Brooklyn-bassed Trouble & Bass (AC Slater, Star Eyes, The Captain and Drop The Lime) celebrated their anniversary this past Friday night at Webster Hall, inviting a ton of their friends including Chris Reed aka dubstep/grime Londoner Plastician to play alongside them. The night featured appearances all throughout, including Carrie Wilds, Dell, Megan Thomas, Badman Shark, Deathface, dancers Raquel Reed and Nikki Delmonico, DJ Craze and a slew of others popping by to say hello and congratulations, as the team succeeded in making the crowd feel alive with heavy bass and intense dance music for a few short hours on Friday, capping off an already-amazing run thus far. Now, we all turn our heads toward the horizon for what’s next. Girls & Boys, stand by.
Here’s the new music video/shopping outtakes clip for “Get The Get” featuring the vocalist assistance from backpacker not hand-bagger Rokhsan, taken from Roots Manuva's upcoming album 4everevolution, all shot in a fake bag shop and a parking lot. "Get The Get" will be released September 26, featuring remixes from Breakage and Slugabed. There’s nothing in the world like having fun making videos, no?
Once again pushing the envelope of visual design in music videos and, more to the point, hip hop/pop videos, Big Dada/Ninja Tune artist DELS takes his latest journey into grayscale and space with "Capsize", where three dimensions and CGI mix into this weirdo fun-house of amazing cuts and chops and also fashion, as Roots Manuva and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip join in the fun only in song, leaving DELS to be the sole inhabitant of the worldly maze. The “Capsize” single and EP package is out now and available for $3.99.
02 Capsize (Lucasse Island re-dub)
03 Capsize (Entrepreneurs remix)
04 Capsize (Marla remix)
05 Capsize (re-imagined by Minotaur)
Dappy (nee Dino Contostavlos) is one-third of the UK smasher grime pop group N-Dubz, and “No Regrets” is the first single and title track from his forthcoming solo debut effort, out September 19. The video for the track, shot by music video legendary director Benny Boom (Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, R Kelly, Snoop Dogg), is all high production value, posturing, side storylines and rooftops aka a really nice attempt to get some fans stateside. It’s working we think.
