My name is LeBop, and as of today I'll be manning the Preciptoman blog
to update you with the latest happity-happenings going on here.
You're probably wondering why I have been handed the role of Chief
Blogger, so I will give you a brief run down. They asked me to.
Here's a slightly longer run down - I've known ADV for about 8 years,
we met when they asked my group to perform at a night that they hosted
called Monday Mic, and the rest, as they say, is history. I've always
liked to be involved in Precipto-plans, and the offer was made for me
to basically be the Ron Burgundy of the label and keep you updated with
the news here. Just to pre-warn you, I enjoy terrible puns, so you'll
just have to DWI, sorry.
So, here's what has and is happening since the last update that Koops
did a while ago.
ALBUM NEARLY (W)RAPPED UP
After what seems like forever since the last time ADV released an
album, Love Sick has finally been recorded with Bernard James in the
last few stages of mixing before it's sent for mastering. It's shaping
up to be a cracker, and you can check out the great review for the
latest single Where We R written by the talented Paul Bailey over HERE.
He absolutely hits the nail on the head when describing the sound that
the guys have evolved into.
PAPER CUTS RADIO
TEARING UP THE CHARTS
The show has been going from strength to strength and is now in the top
10 most listened to in the Underground
Hip Hop charts. A huge congrats
to Koops and Bernie J for their achievement, and before long I'm sure
it'll get to that number one spot (said in Ludacris voice). They
continue to bring in awesome guests, awesome songs, awesome bants, and
an awesome freestyle. So all in all, pretty awesome.
Here's a date for your diary too - November 15th, it's the Paper Cuts
Birthday Party... And you're all invited! It is taking place at Kilburn
2 Kensal studios and it will be full of live music and cheerful people
enjoying said music and the birthday atmosphere, it'd be really rather
cool if you came too. Grab your ticket HERE.
Now for my WHAT'S LEBOP GOT ON
section where, fortunately for you, is
where I get to tell you about who I'm currently listening to on
Spotify, and not my general attire. Ok, fine. I know you're all now
wondering what I am actually wearing, so... it's a blue v neck tee and
some Nike shorts.
Anyway, back to my recommended listening for you guys. You might
know her from being Robert Pattinson's latest squeeze, but FKA Twigs
released her new album not long ago and it is pretty damn good.
With no formal genre classification, it's basically R'n'B done properly
for the present time. For me, R'n'B hasn't really been that great since
the early 2000s, with the exception of one of my favourite artists -
Frank Ocean. But FKA Twigs gives a real British, spacious and eerie
sound whilst twinkling her harmonies effortlessly. Check out the link
for my favourite track of hers here, which is called Lights On.
Right, that just about does it I think. I'm off to nurse this self
inflicted day long hangover after Koops and I downed too many fine ales
at the local Beer Festival.
