A three and just under a third minutes of tightly packed percussion and vocal which is interspersed with synth noises-off and choral backing voices gives I Dey Shina a generous dance-tempo that captures the listeners attention with its changes in pace and atmosphere.

I Dey Shina – Elisee Akowendo is available on iTunes.*

Han-FX with Jor-DMC ft. Skilldog – Hip Hop News – Video

Introduced last year – the Isle of Man reggae-hop duo Han-FX with Jor-DMC return with a song that surfaced within the past few hours.

Adding a third artist Skilldog, also from Manx – for such a small island, those who have followed the site with any regularity will, like me, be pondering – other than musicians and TT bike riders, who else lives on the Isle Of Man?

Hip Hop News resonates of the Ska beat and acerbic rapping which discovers that the duo will be appearing at One Love Fest later this year. There is an easy and honest openness to Hip Hop News that minds of Ian Dury And The Blockheads with the concertina resting on the wrestle between the lyric and the outliers of musical construct, which due completely to the conflict, gives the resulting output its organic pulse, which even through speakers nestles in the heart and is an extremely difficult construct to deliver successfully.

By the fact that is not their first appearance, alerts that they are more than capable of meeting the challenge they set themselves.

The roughly twenty five minutes album (available on bandcamp) only requires that the listener clears some space around them before hitting play as the dance-grooves tumble around the room.

Combinations of beatbox, saxophone, bass and guitar find the audience with a wide smile across their face, whilst lyric ranges from acerbic social commentary to easy flowing cheerfulness.
