Japhia Life - 'Westside Pharmacy' Album Review

Looks like I forgot to post on here about my review of Japhia Life's 'Westside Pharmacy' album. It's a really moody piece of work - a real tussle between light and dark but it has a certain quality to it which is really hard to pin down; I listened to it so many times because I really liked it. Have a read, have a listen - see what you think!

"This could never be said to be a preachy album, yet it is drenched in spirituality: is the line “I’m already trading my comfort zone for a war zone and ducking a pitchfork” (from opener Japhia’s Lyric) not just the best street-poetic way to describe the spiritual battle we enter when we become believers?"

W.L.A.K. & P.H.I.L.T.H.Y. Album Reviews

Couple of new reviews from myself, both posted over at Sphere of Hip Hop: P.H.I.L.T.H.Y.'s 'A Little Light For You' and W.L.A.K's 'We Live As Kings'. Two totally different styles, sounds and messages, but both I was really into.

From the W.L.A.K album I can't stop listening to 'Long Way Down' by Christon Gray and Dre Murray - awesome.

Coming next are reviews of Lampmode's The Collective (Stephen The Levite, Zae Da Blacksmith and Timothy Brindle) and Freddie Bruno's remix of Sivion's 'Butterfly Sessions'.

Octopus Helmet

Creating a stencil for a 3 layer screen print of the octopus in the diving helmet. This will be a black layer on top of an orange/yellow helmet and pink/red tentacles.
