Easy, so I got some mail from Mouthwatering Records, a label based in Switzerland. They sent over tracks from one of their artists called Talen. Two Djs and producers also from Switzerland. They've recently got played on Radio 1 from Mary Anne Hobbs.
They are on a hip hop/club/dancehall tip, and have teamed up with the legendary Cutty Ranks and Sizzla both of whom spit on tracks on their forthcoming EP.
Mouthwatering Records had this to say on the EP and track
"Kingston Book is Talen’s debut EP release and features Jamaican danehall heroes Sizzla and Cutty Ranks, with remixes by Stereotyp and Markus Kienzl. Talen is 2 DJ’s and 2 Producers based in Winterthur Switzerland. This is the 'The Vibes' - A Sizzla Tale; A mighty, yet playful, beat. Sizzla loved what he heard, and Talen loved what he did on the microphone. The song could not be better named than the vibes. Rock’n’Roll in a Dancehall costume, or rather vice-versa? Doesn’t matter – as long as the vibe is right."
Here is the track, full quality!
Talen - The Vibes - A Sizzla Tale
If you like the track, go and buy the EP, it's full of other juicy riddims. I reckon fans of Major Lazor might enjoy these guys a lot. And if anyone likes a good bit of dancehall/reggae MC-ing then they will definitely be a fan. Download the Kingston Book session mix here as well the tracklist is here..... tracklist
Keep an eye on these guys, could get very interesting
