Jay Roacher – Paradise +Show this Fri W/ Louie Knuxx + Young Lean

Leave a comment

Jay’s new album, Cheer Up Jay, is out now via breakin wreckwordz and this is the lead single. Stays true to his subject matter, that depressed, introspective, reflection that’s a common theme throughout his work.

Beat by nettsmoney, reminds me a bit of “Party Trick” off of Young Lean’s worth the wax EP, but again works as a perfect compliment to Jay’s delivery and subject matter.
Video is a bit melodramatic but rounds out the aesthetic nicely.

and I’m DJing in the other room for Mr DNA + AOI show with Kwasi

One of my favourite albums out of NZ ever, any genre. Hard copies of this sold out years ago so Louie is giving it away in prep for his new album Funeral For Two (I think…I might have made that name up though…)

This is burner of a track off their new album, out today.

Interestingly Louie Knuxx drops part of a line that he used when he was first telling me about how I didn’t really understand how good R.E.S. are.

Louie Knuxx Interview


This one was a while coming. we scheduled and re-scheduled so many times. arrived without sleeping for 3 days and no questions. hopefully someone can make sense of it, I haven’t watched the edit yet. enjoy;

Stream/Download Wasted Youth here
And the Interview

I forgot to ask why the first track* promo-ing anything he does has a tupac reference. Wanna answer that cuz?

is just a co-incidence, dont think theres any on the new shit. I used to be a big pac fan but couldnt listen to his music for bout 6 years after i got out of jail cos thats all i heard and was surrounded by dudes that wanted to be pac.

*beat from fly, lyric reference in “This Summer”

Posse Cuts.

There’s something about tracks with a half dozen or so different rappers that I really like. Possibly because I grew up when rap groups were more common than solo artists. Having different people come in every verse (or half verse) stops shit getting boring and there can be some real entertainment later in the track when there are a couple of dubious artists and the quality falls to amateur hour levels.

Last few years it’s been the go to for a new artist with a hit single to get a remix with about 10 a-list rappers – think throw some D’s on it, black n yellow, aye bay bay. Which invariably ended up with Jim jones droning over the beat at some point because cam’ron seemed to go missing for a minute or two a couple years back. anyways, here’s some posse cuts worth checking out.
