Video: Nelson – Grey

Nelson is a rapper hailing from UK that reminds me of a young Rejjie Snow in more ways than just their similar accents.  “Grey” is the kind of rainy-day weed-gazing meditation that Rejjie, Tay Devenny and DJJD SPORTS have been making for a while now.  Over a jazzy and subdued beat, Nelson expounds upon his future as well as the …

Edgar the Beatmaker – Deezle (ft. Jesse James & Rago Foot)

Despite having been on less songs than I can count on my hand, Jesse James is one of the most exciting rappers coming out of the UK right now.  Teaming up with the equally laid-back Rago Foot, James hops on a jazzy and downtempo beat from Edgar the Beatmaker (another pen name of Archie Marshall a.k.a. King Krule a.k.a. Lankslacks …

mp3: Jerkcurb – Midnight Snack (DJ JD Sports Remix) (ft. Lofty305, JayCee and Rago Foot)

When he’s not putting out atmospheric and experimental blues-based music as King Krule, Archie Marshall has been releasing a steady supply of atmospheric and experimental hip-hop as DJ JD Sports.  While King Krule finds Marshall at his most introspective and personal, DJ JD Sports has always seemed to be Marshall’s output for collaborative, half-baked and less serious projects.  Marshall’s newest …

mp3: Angel Haze – New York (King Krule Rework)

Angel Haze burst onto the blogosphere earlier this year with one of the most hyped and buzzed rap singles of 2012 with ‘New York’.  While we never hopped on the Angel Haze bandwagon, it’s pretty hard to ignore the immense amount of raw and gimmick-less talent coming from the female rapper.  While a lot of the praise for the single …

mp3: King Krule – Octopus

If you frequent The Up-Turn, you might remember this post I made at the beginning of the year about Archy Marshall’s (AKA King Krule and Zoo Kid) widely unknown alias, DJ JD Sports, and the interesting and experimental music he makes and releases on Soundcloud under that name.  In that post, I included a song called “The Octopus” which, if I …

mp3: King Krule – Rock Bottom

All rejoice, King Krule is back.  I thought one of the only flaws with King Krule’s debut EP, was that it left me wanting more new songs from King Krule, so now that I have one I’m pretty excited.  “Rock Bottom” as per Archy Marshall’s usual style makes use of some incredibly well written jazzy chord progressions and emotive vocals, …

mp3: Jamie Isaac – An Aus Trail – (The Iron Horse Dream)

It’s been too long since we’ve been able to listen to some experimental and atmospheric music from London’s Jamie Isaac so ‘An Aus Trail – (The Iron Horse Dream)’ comes as a nice surprise this morning.  Although this track probably won’t become your August summer anthem, ‘An Aus Trail – (The Iron Horse Dream)’ continues Jamie Isaac’s reign as the …
