Walker Wear Love Note Series #2 – The Barrel Brothers

Coming back on the scene has been a real experience. People often ask me why I decided to relaunch Walker Wear and the most practical answer would be because I had an itch creatively, I thought the timing was right and wished to extend my portfolio. That would be true, but the most important factor is that I wanted to be a part of the process to bridge the gap between generation x and y.

Music and fashion have always been two of the biggest forms of self-expression. Music can take..

Joob 森本 – Don’t Say It Enuff

I stumbled across this beat from Joob 森本 yesterday, and although he’s someone I’ve been aware of for a few weeks now (he has a really cool album on Bandcamp called cycl:ical, it’s very electronica-based not so much hip-hop, but good all the same) I’ve not really explored his work – to my detriment. So perusing through his Soundcloud I found a bunch of awesome jazzy beats (including some Ackryte collabs), but my favourite must be ‘Don’t Say It Enuff’. It’s so fresh, carried by lush strings, gentle bass and distorting filter – and the way the chord sequence..

Signif – Friction

Signif‘s new LP Friction came like a thief in the night as I have been patiently waiting for this for quite some time now.  The Radio Raheem-laced single ‘Late Night Jazz‘, which dropped mid last year, is still fresh in my mind and peeping the entire body of work shows the incredible amount of dedication Signif put into this. She holds her own effortlessly throughout the entire 13 track project, weaving several topical issues together while keeping the lyrical blade as sharp as ever.

She definitely brings her A-game to this project, and the producers she employs build a solid sonic..

Diabolic – Game Time feat. Sean Price & Vinny Paz prod. 5th Seal

As the saying goes third time’s a charm, and Diaolic‘s ‘Game Time’, the third single off his soon to be released LP Fighting Words, reinforces just that. On this one, he brings in two rap heavyweights (literally) in the form of Sean Price and Vinnie Paz. As expected, the product is brutal, full of intense bars over a sinister backdrop crafted by 5th Seal.

I need not stress that Fighting Words is something y’all should get your paws on. Hit the play button coz its ‘Game Time’!

Alan T – Failure feat. Shaa Hebrew

Alan T is back to give us some positivity with his new joint ‘Failure’, featuring Shaa Hebrew. The Queens native has an uplifting message to send, and over laid back production Alan proposes success through life’s rough patches, including family doubts, and the distractions of the city. In the end he proclaims :

“Everybody’s success is not your failure.”  

Wise words from the young wordsmith.

Remain on the look out for the God Speed EP, dropping soon.

Check it out!

L’Orange – Need You feat. Blu

L’Orange hits us with an atomic bomb of a video for his track ‘Need You’, taken from his album The Orchid Days and featuring the enviable talent of Blu. The visuals for ‘Need You’ are spectacular, a short film in itself accompanied by the haunting beat and melancholic vocals of the song, conceptually based around a ‘post-apocalyptic Adam and Eve story’. L’Oranges videos tend to be a level higher than the norm and this doesn’t disappoint.

Director’s Note – “As a multi-media artist coming from a back ground in performance and video art, the first time I heard L’Orange’s “Need..

On Cue – Angry Young Man

I know many OnCue fans have been holding their breath for this drop but finally Angry Young Man is released. The 12-track monster includes superb production from CJ Luzi, Hudson Mohawke, ARW, Dream Koala and Cue’s right hand man Just Blaze, just to name a few.

This comes as follow up to 2013’s leftovers. To be quite honest, between the crazy energy and raw lyrical content, Cue has created a musical bliss that you could play again in 2025.  ‘So much love’ and ‘Broken Language’ are personal bangers of mine, but it’s hard to say which joint..
