Autre Ne Veut “World War Pt. 2” (Jazz Version) Age of Transparency (out 10.02 on Downtown) After a few weeks of downtime thanks to the good folks of GoDaddy.com, the lights are back on at Thunder Penguin. Our first post back comes from longtime fave Arthur Ashin. I’m not crazy about the album version of the discs first single, “World War Pt. 2,” due to its overzealous “ay, ay, ay, ay” vocal sample constantly clashing with what is, at its heart, …

Hot Jam of the Day: Majical Cloudz, “Silver Car Crash”

Stormzy “10 Minutes” Digital Single One of the grime’s brightest young talents goes in over the Game’s recent single “100.” As he’s done consistently over the last year or so, the 22 year-old delivers muscular bars with a sharp wit that will make you want to run it back and listen again. Though this single is very much a digital loosey, its outro is noteworthy, as it’s one of the first times we’ve heard Stormzy’s use his pristine baritone to …
