The first single Look To The Sky from Ger Kellett's upcoming album Honesty has just dropped accompanied by a video. The track is produced by G.I and has that trademark airy sampled vibe to it. Kellett matches with his light flow and personal aspected content. Visuals on this one by Jay Mahon of L.A.B. Media are nice, simple and sharp. A nice zone track, definitely looking forward to hearing some more from this guy.
The third solo EP installment from the Sons Phonetic crew comes from Kav, titled Perception Tunnel, this 5 track EP holds in stature to the level we've been hearing and expecting from the Sons Phonetic maestros. With the usual dark, contrasted production from Mook, Kav spits solid, straight and timed bars delivered with relaxed precision.
Next up from the Sons Phonetic crew and their solo EP's is Kav's Perception Tunnel. Here's a teaser video with Kav droppin some bars from the soon to be released EP.
Back in September of last year Artane native Siyo dropped his latest solo album The Real Simon Young. For me this album put a whole new dimension to the Dublin emcee with him really delivering a solid, well crafted piece of work and in my own opinion I felt he totally upped his craftmanship as a songwriter and emcee choosing some top beats and collabs to really match his position, style and deliveries.
