Jason Lewis – Too Many Weave

It is a great time for the UK in terms of rising talents, the music scene with the likes of Chipmunk and Tinchy Stryder dominating charts, Noel Clark and Adam Deacon to name a few are making waves within the film industry and then you have the comedians like Eddie Kadi, Kevin J and Channel AKA’s own Jazzie.

Among the ranks is comedian Jason Lewis, hilarious sketches and relevant comedy, Jason Lewis first burst onto the scene with his parody of Bashy – Black Boys:

An MTV show (The Jason Lewis experience) later he returns with the Boy Better Know – Too Many Man parody ..’Too Many Weave’:

Great to see more good comedy and comedians from the UK, with comedians such as Jason Lewis and Jazzie to add to the likes of Slim, Kojo and Paul Chowdhry the country has another reason to smile and laugh.

Comedian Kevin J ..UK Stand Up

In recent times, the UK urban scene has seen a major merging of artists, this has helped the scene rise higher, as they say ‘strength in numbers’. Along side musicians and artists themselves, DJ’s and comedians have been sharing support with the scene, most notably the likes of Ace & Vis and comedians Eddie Kadi and Kevin J.

Kevin J is considered the protégé of fast rising comedian Eddie Kadi, supporting him at shows and in cameos on music videos (such as Bashy – Ransom ft. Scorcher & Wretch 32).

Many of the top comedians happen to be of African decent, when mentioning the greats, the names Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphey, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle come up every time, in the UK, we have Richard Blackwood, Kojo, Slim and Paul Chowdhry (the recent being of Indian heritage), Paul became one of the first comedians to branch into their category with his youthful appeal as well as the ethnicity based similarities, with so many blends of cultures in recent times, many audiences are now equally accepting and understanding of the humour as well.

Kevin J, is a comedian on the rise, Richard Blackwood is quoted as to saying, “He has that X factor”, Kojo, Slim and Eddie Kadi have all praised him, his honest character and relevant humour have had audiences of all races in hysterics wherever he performs.

He manages to capture that essence of relevance and youth, he is not afraid to put himself in the forefront of his jokes, yet he gains more respect for the simple factor that he pulls the jokes off like a veteran, composed, professional and absolutely hilarious!!

Kevin J recently appeared on Kojo’s Comedy Fun House on MTV Base, it was an open-mic style audition, nobody knew what to expect, he was after a good act and all the pressure was there, Kevin came out and brought the house down with an awesome set, I was laughing after he had finished (embarrassing to admit but proves how good he is), he is definitely a comedian on the rise, one that will be in your favourites real soon.

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:
