21 Dares: Tribal Magz ft Gracious K & Ramzee

If you downloaded the Tribal Magz mixtape you would have already heard the original of 21 Dares, however it has been on the grapevyne for a short while that there was a recomposition taking place to include Gracious K and the man of the moment on the scene, Ramzee the host amongst the Stormparties collective.

If you’re a DJ who has been playing the original 21 Dares, throw your last copy out the window and get in touch with the guys for a new copy. This new version has so much more to offer than the previous. However my constructive criticism would be that some of the lyrics could’ve been more creative ie we don’t need to still be hearing about how big ‘Migraine Skank’ was anymore….. It is 2011 now, let’s get with the times!

Anyways, check it out….

2011 UK Funky Going Forth

2010 was an odd year… UK funky progressed, got slated, got rated and also got frustrated. But why and how? More importantly how will it be overcome? What lessons can be learnt? What needs to be changed and what needs to stay the same? Having the title of the UK Funky blogger, I felt it only right to take a deeper look. Following analysis, here you’ll find the conclusion…

2010 Top 20 UK House & Funky Tracks

UK Funky takes over Twitter!!

The past weekend has been more than comical for all those involved in the UK Funky scene. During the early afternoon hours of Saturday, champion Grime MC Wiley discovered the bar ‘unite the raver‘. First he made it a point to find out which Funky MC the bar belonged, then enquired whether or not there was a song to go along with it, then came the unexpected.

For the remainder of the weekend, Wiley’s tweets all seems to have some kind of relevance to uniting the ravers. Some were about who has united ravers over the years and others who hasn’t. Even during X-Factor he spectated which contestants were able to unite ravers and who weren’t.

By Sunday afternoon, there was laughter coupled with complaints that ‘Unite The Raver‘ had taken over many people’s timelines, Wiley’s jokes seemed to had encouraged many to join in with their own ‘Unite the Raver‘ tweets. Plus Ramzee added petrol to fire by encouraging every area and nation in turn to put their ‘Hand in the Air‘ causing retweets from many different angles.

I think it would be an idea for Ramzee to collaborate with Wiley to bring us an official track for Unite the Raver/Hand in the Air…… Just a thought…..

Ramzee has become renowned within the UK Funky circuit for the good vibes and fun that his lyrics bring. As none are based on degrading women or bragging about belongings or popping champagne, the appeal to join in with enjoyment is felt by all.

Salutes!!

UK Funky Mic Tribute

Wasn’t too sure what to think when I heard this track for the first time. Riskgo is an MC that is respected amongst his peers so I couldn’t really understand the need for him to lay down this track. Although I can see how he felt he was pushing the scene forward by collaborating everybodies lyrics together.

The one thing that it did bring to light to me however……

“How many bleeding MCs does this scene really need!!!??”

Not to mention that there are a few that got missed out even though there are 25 names!! I will not list those forgotten as wish to not offend anybody by missing them out AGAIN, but one of them hosts the radio show of the most recognised DJ in the scene, so I don’t know how he got forgotten…..

Anyway, if you’re feeling the track, Riskgo is also giving it as a free download which can be found here: Riskgo – Mic UK Funky Tribute
