Leading the charge in a new wave of Japanese hip hop is a 16 man crew from Setagaya, Tokyo known as KANDYTOWN, which consists of MCs, DJs and producers. Since the release of their first free mixtape KOLD TAPE the crew has been building a steady following.
An acronym for Kids On Drugs, King Overdosed and Kill Our Demons, with parallel artwork, J. Cole delivers a superb album of twelve tracks with cautionary messages throughout; egging us to “Choose wisely”.
Daily Affirmations is DJ, Rapper and Producer CohenBeats' latest record. Having moved to LA in 2011, the 26 year old's roots show strong in all-Israeli samples spliced with rap, singing and self-produced beats.
