@HitmansOnline - King Of The Town (Review)


The story of the creation of this debut itunes release from Invasion Alert member Hitman is one of multiple emotions. It's been in the making for a while now and throughout the process Hits has had a lot on his plate both with music and his personal life and this is evident as I listen to the cd.

The opening track "Like Me Or Not" is the perfect opener for this cd, with it's anthemic instrumental and Hitmans aggressive yet calculated approach to spitting this track is like the first bottle of courvoisier on a night out as it sets the tone for the rest of the album with blistering pace. I've got to admit when Hits sent me the album as eager as I was to hear every single track, I had to wheel this track 5/6 times before moving onto the next.

As soon as you see that the second track "Oh My Days" features NODB heavyweights Deadly and Mayhem, you already know that your ears are about to get punched up as your ear canals get thrown into a frenzied mosh pit inside your head. It goes without saying that this track brings the hype at gas mark 1000 and will leave you wanting to go touch down a rave and witness some shells being spat just so you can wile out and let loose.



The third track "Actors" for which you can see the video at the top of this post, is a polished work of art produced by Climaks Beats and perfectly complimented by the vibe Hitman is on through his lyricism. You may of already heard this track being spun on Silk City via the Invasion Show or DJ Big Mikee's show to which it always receives a lot of love blowing up my timeline.

A lot of people thought that after Lord Of The Mics, Invasion and old school London artist Discarda had actual beef due to some of he lyrics that Jaykae delivered towards him in their clash. If your one of the people that believed this you need to put the crack pipe down and face reality. Discarda proved there's nothing but love by jumping on the 4th track on this cd entitled "I Do Grime" which is a loud, obnoxious piece of music that is exactly what grime music is about.

The fifth anthem on King Of The Town is a track I personally have been anticipating like a junkie waiting for it's fix. Hitman teams up with fellow Birmingham veterans Opiffawana and Malik MD7 to deliver a solid rap tune. Most of you may not know that Hitman used to create mainly rap tracks in his earlier days and he more than holds his own alongside these two forefathers of the midlands scene.



Next on the cd is the Ronseal track. You may think I've lost it by saying that but what I mean is it does exactly what it says on the tin. Entitled "KOTT Anthem" the track is in essence a perfect track to sum up the whole cd as Hits absolutely body's the riddim with his unique flair and usual no bullshit attitude.

The next few tracks "Best Mc", "Know What's Your On" and "Shutdown The Place" are much more of the same caliber of creative audio genius. Hitman has the unique ability to get anyone no matter how mellow they are in real life to lose their rag and wile out to his music. I guarantee if you ask your favorite mc who his favorite mc is he will reply with Hitman as his or her answer. Every live set or radio set I've ever heard him on he has received numerous wheel ups, you may think this is easily done but with a scene as strong as it currently is, getting a wheel up before you've even spat an 8 bar is a sign of true ability.

The penultimate track on this flawless album is a huge collaboration track with fellow midlands artists Spz About and Pressure of Stayfresh. Much like the title suggests "WannaBees" is a flaming meteorite directed straight at the fakes and snakes that surround. Each and every one of us on a daily basis especially when it comes to the music scene.

The bonus track features a name that you may recognize from the Invasion Alert single "Alien Invasion" yes that's right Knox Brown is back again with another killer hook with this track showing a different side to Hitmans musical mind. This is the sort of track that gets a lot of national radio support and becomes the rough diamond of an album like this. All in all this is an absolutely perfect album from the Invasion Alert star and I urge you to buy it when it lands on the 22nd of August.

@ProctorPro - Housage EP (Review)

Check out the promo mix mixed by oxfords very own DJ Spex below!



Those of you that already know about Oxford based producer Proctor will more than likely know him for his hard hitting, emotion provoking uk rap and hiphop beats that have been vocalled by some of the finest in the uk scene. This EP however see's him step out of his comfort zone and into the world of House music.

Some of you may be thinking "Great another producer making shit repetitive house beats" but if your one of those people, take time to listen to this release and see if it changes your mind. Proctor has established a nice underground following and in terms of features and collabs he has built himself a healthy portfolio. In regards to his rap beats, Proctor has his own unique blend of hard hitting snares, atmospheric synths and well structured pieces of art that have been vocalled by the likes of Timbar, Page, Bellzey, 5 Star, Fix Dot M and many more.


The Housage EP sees him switch up the tone and create some lively, bouncy anthems that will get any crowd shuffling and cutting shapes in the best of mind frames. The main point that this EP raises is to not judge a producer by what he's known for as in terms of genres, rap and house couldn't be further apart yet Proctor seems to have mastered both perfectly.

I urge you to grab yourself a copy when it drops on the first of August and enter the word of a local production genius. Check out the links for some of his other projects and the Tracklist for this EP below and make sure to keep an eye on this rising talent
