PREMIERE: Dex Amora – manym00ns

Dex Amora brings us ‘manym00ns’, the first single from the Word Is Bond-sponsored project Aura. Among a mellow, piano-driven backdrop (the on-point production is provided by Goldenbeets), Dex displays his ability to navigate the profound whilst maintaining his characterful flow. Aura is a real leap forward from his previous works, so get a taste of what he’s about and expect [&hellip

The Cancel – Criminal (Ukraine)

Something outta Ukraine as production duo The Cancel returns from their hiatus with Criminal. It seems to be an ode to the streets and graffiti life, but it’s full of The Cancel’s tight drums and jazzy samples. It’ll be interesting to see how they proceed from now as well, with their Facebook page saying it’s ‘about to [&hellip

Lupe Fiasco – Lilies feat. Sirah

Consistent readers of Word Is Bond will know that I consider Lupe Fiasco‘s descent from greatness is one of the most tragic things to happen to hip hop in the new Millenium, and while it’ll take something phenomenal to truly arrest that decline ‘Lilies’ is the best thing I’ve heard from him in a while. Soulful production [&hellip

Surock – Broccoli feat. Blu

This will be most people’s introduction to MC and producer Surock, but the indomitable Blu jumps on with him for ‘Broccoli’, the first single from Surock’s upcoming Fuck You Very Much EP. Whenever greens are mentioned in the culture of hip-hop, you normally know what they refer to and of course ‘Broccoli’ is no exception, but it’s a nice track to spark up [&hellip


deadxbeat – [ leftover​.​_slops ]

I’ve been really, really in to that lo-fi, jazzy, minimalist hip-hop sound recently, so when I stumbled across deadxbeat’s Soundcloud it was as if I discovered a goldmine. The dude creates so much and throws a hell of a lot out there – nice to see someone so productive – but of course that means there are [&hellip

DJ Hellblazer – Left Behind(s) vol.2

DJ Hellblazer’s ‘Left Behind(s) 2′ explores a melancholic sense of abandonment. ‘An anthology of tracks left behind’, this is not a release for those summery days, but from the moment Nathalie P’s voice hits those notes on the intro a raw, nostalgic energy is transmitted from record to speaker. It’s deep and it’s dark, but it’s good. Continue Reading
