Zee Kay – In Denial

As you know, I’m always listening out for good music, I come across an artist by the name of Zee Kay, he looked familiar, then I remember that I met him at the video shoot for Sef – Need A Hero ft. Swiss. The talented yet humble singer, had officially made his debut with the single ‘My Moment’:

In all fairness this was not a bad track, with the right promotion I think it could have gone further, but as an introduction to the artist, it was a good effort. That was released last Year in August. Fast forward to 2009 and Zee Kay returns with the follow-up, titled ‘In Denial’:

Different from My Moment, In Denial sees Zee Kay lace a more edgy, up-tempo club track with his soft R&B sound, similar to the early classics from Artful Dodger In Denial sounds good. The concept helps it stand out, with Zee Kay showing his songwriting abilities, he wrote the track Baby for Ginuwine:

Zee Kay is another addition to the rising singers the UK has to offer alongside artists such as Loick Essien and Bluey Robinson.

Oxide & Neutrino – Rap Dis ft. Swiss, Skat D, MC Harvey & Kaish

With the excitement surrounding the So Solid Crew’s imminent return, I could not help but to go through the collection, this is a classic, this song and video set the bar high in the UK and to be honest I don’t think anyone has actually reached this standard let alone top it (regardless of the constraints media has placed upon urban acts).

I’ll start with the beat, It’s just evil-sounding, it’s dark, edgy, the bass and the synths, they just set the tone and mood for the emcees to rap over. Each emcee brings their own style which is why it never gets boring despite the beat being a consistent (until Harvey’s verse), layered with perfectly placed ad-libs, the emcees flow with individuality which as a whole sounds great. Swiss starts off, “N****’s wanna test S-O that’s a no, I’ma DJ but I heat up mics when I flow”, instantly setting the scene and standard for the song. Skat D as always vibrant on the mic, Neutrino’s verse many can argue was not as potent as Swiss’, however you cannot help but to rap along to it, each emcee (including) Kaish comes correct on this banger.

The video does not need much description or even praise, it speaks for it self (in volumes), the concept, the graphics..they all create one of the best videos from an urban artist/act especially in the UK.

l (like many others) cannot wait for So Solid’s return, a lot of expectation is placed, but it is not the first time they have had to deal with such issues and as done before i’m sure will prevail.

Just Like the single itself stands out among commercial R&B, so does the video, with the visuals emphasizing the audio well encorporating the feel good atmosphere as Sef saves his damsel in distress, I’m looking forward to seeing the video regularly on TV.

Swiss – Cry ft. Sharifa

Who remembers this one?

Crazy Michael Jackson sample, lyrically on point and the content is highly applauded.

Swiss had been with So Solid Crew from the start but fans, audiences and peers alike began to see him shine with vocals on both Oxide & Neautrino – Rap Dis and So Solid’s ‘Broken Silence‘ (Produced by Mr Shabz, who is also the founder of Music Kidz and have recently inked a deal with Jay-Z’s ROC Nation label), the producer/rapper showed that he was just as gifted on the mic as he is with the beats.

After being acknowledged as a true artist, an emcee with style and substance, Swiss blessed us with ‘Cry’, the song’s concept helped inspire many and played its part in encouraging Bashy to create the anthem that is ‘Black Boys‘.

I don’t want to say too much, enjoy the track and let me know what you think, Swiss is one of the truest artists in our country and with Music Kidz now with Jay-Z’s ROC Nation, I as a fan first hope that Swiss gets to prove to a larger audience how good he really is with more good music.

Sef – Need A Hero ft. Swiss

The former So Solid crew singer is back to claim his spot as one of the UK’s finest talents.

After creating a buzz with the single ‘Out of the Ghetto’, Sef has truly delivered with the follow up ‘Need a Hero’. Upbeat and definitely one to have the heads nodding, using a video game-sounding sample over a slick beat adding a few synths and strings, with the singer lacing the beat with his vocals, letting his damsel in distress know that he’s here to save her from her heartbreak. The addictive chorus just flows smooth as he sings:
“Girl You Need A Hero..Someone who is just like me, A Hero..Who can give you what you need, I’m just trying to show ya, Baby I’m the one for ya, I was sent just to love ya, I’m your Hero!”
Featuring the additional vocals of emcee Swiss (Also of So Solid fame) who from the sounds of it has stepped his game up, certainly giving the song more depth. ‘Need a Hero’ really stands out amongst the majority of the current commercial R&B songs in this country. Certainly a hit for Sef and the Music Kidz team who are back with a banger!!

..They are shooting a video for it very soon, Shout out to Shabz the professor, Sef and the whole of Musik Kidz, keep making those hits!!

Jay-Z signs Music Kidz to ROC Nation!!

This is big news people,

Music Kidz, consisting of producer Mr Shabz (who is the founder of Music Kidz) & former Reelist producer K1, emcee Swiss and singer Sef (the trio that were behind many of the So Solid Crew’s hits), have been working hard with their group, production team, label and movement.

Proof of their hard work has come when Sef himself recently announced that Music Kidz has signed to Jay-Z’s new imprint ROC Nation, this is big news for the scene and the country, it means our hard work and talents are being recognized and with such an array of talent here in the UK, it is the next step, it shows the progression we are making, recently Jay Sean signed to the one and only Cash Money Records (Home to none other than Lil’ Wayne).

The first release I’m looking forward to and have been waiting for a while is Sef and his album ‘Every Piece of Me’, after releasing ‘Out of the Ghetto‘ and the soon to come ‘Need A Hero‘, Sef has proven that he has a voice to match some of the best R&B singers out there, having already worked with the likes of platinum selling Robin Thicke on the track ‘Tonite‘, as a fan of music it is increasingly frustrating to not hear his material and his name being mentioned among the greats.

Also, Swiss, how can anyone forget his heartfelt flow on So Solid Crew’s smash ‘Broken Silence‘, Swiss then gave us ‘Cry‘, so the soon coming album ‘One In A Million’ is still antiscipated the Music Kidz are capable of classics so it is only right that they venture with ROC Nation (one of the most expensive labels created) with the legend Jay-Z himself to create more of their own history.
