Chipmunk – Oopsy Daisy

Chip Diddy Chip has come a long way in a short space of time and this single will take him even further.

After the success of his Top 10 single Diamond Rings and featuring on DJ Ironik – Tiny Dancer (Which reached Number 3 in the national charts), Chipmunk looks set to add another chart topper to his list with Oopsy Daisy, a far more commercial sounding record, it will no doubt help him gain an even larger fanbase. The song, which is evidently aimed at his growing female audience, whilst being relative for his male fans, is mellow and soulful, it has feeling, the female’s vocals take a strong lead, more than in his previous single, not to be seen as a negative as Chipmunk’s verses have presence and really portrays a more humble and sensetive side to Chipmunk, this adds emotion and will help it stand out among other releases.

Taken from his debut album I AM Chipmunk (to be released in October), Oopsy Daisy is a light-hearted and touching track, one that will appeal to many people (not just his own fanbase), it actually is such a warm and heartfelt track that you cannot critisize it as the formula works really well, Chipmunk’s lyrics are youthfully relevant and really holds the song together well. A number one record for Chipmunk has always been expected, Oopsy Daisy might just be his first.

Chipmunk signs to Major Label

UK’s own Mr Munk, better known as Chipmunk has announced that he has signed to major label Sony (Columbia) records.

The move has come whilst much anticipation for the release of his debut ‘I Am Chipmunk‘ continues, the Mobo Award winner has been risen from a little known emcee to one of the urban scenes (if not the country’s) biggest charting prospect, having already gained an overseas fanbase with releases such as Muhammad Ali, Beast (featuring Loick Essien) and Chip Diddy Chip, as well as reaching Number 3 in the charts with DJ Ironik on their Elton John collaboration ‘Tiny Dancer’.

Congratulations to Chipmunk himself and Always Recording who are now the second to reach major label status after Number 1 charting Tinchy Stryder inked his Star In The Hood imprint with Universal records.

The urban scene is rising and it is amazing to see, I can only see it rising further and look forward to seeing more success for our talent in the near future.

Marvell – Make Noise

The Marvell boys return with the much anticipated video for their single ‘Make Noise’ (Out 1st June).

Marvell have been making a name for themselves within the underground scene for a while now individually and as a collective with mixtapes such as Late Arrival, Moneys Da Motive and the latest offering Marvell FM, each one receiving high praises for it’s combination of innovation, creativity and entertainment values.

Make Noise is the first single to be released, and the single itself is making a lot of noise as they rise further up in the game. The video is already a regular on TV, with many requesting the video proving they have a strong following.

The track is compiled with a beat that makes it’s presence known, a synth that brings pace into the track, perfectly complimented by the flow from all three emcees, Shocka leads and delivers another metaphorically driven verse, full of lyrical ability and wit, Vertex then steps up and delivers on point, obviously the fasted out of the three (if not the fastest in the scene) Double S runs side by side of the melody with the third verse adding heavily to keeping the impact of the song consistent from start to finish. I really feel that it has the same attributes as Kano – P’s & Q’s in terms of cross-over appeal, Marvell manage to come across aggressive whilst maintaining an ear-friendly sound.

Visually, directed by Vertex himself (who notably also directed the video for The Noisettes – Don’t Upset the Rhythm), it is a combination of professionalism and a youthful mind, it provides the same enjoyable feel as the track and therefore the two compliment each other, complete with effects and an Eddie Kadi cameo, Vertex is certainly making noise as one of the best prospects in the direction field.

Overall, Make Noise will is set to elevate the fly boys to further heights, they certainly deserve it with the hard work and determination that they put in but more with the talent they possess and the quality material that Marvell is delivering.

For those who need more persuasion of how good Marvell are, here you go:
