NEW ALBUM ALERT: FreshfromDE – Home Is Where The Heart Is @FreshfromDE
“Home Is Where The Heart Is” is an 8 track album produced 100% by Boston producer Rekordhead. Delaware’s FreshfromDE explores the challenges of repping for his hometown and state, in the face of lacking a voice within the present world. You can hear the pride FreshfromDE has in his home and how he doesn’t hesitate to accept the responsibility of being the mouthpiece for his people, hometown and state.
Following the previous releases of the inspirational anthem “Doin’ Numbers” and the somber reminiscing on his days coming up back home on “To The Homies.” The album “Home Is Where The Heart Is” is all about using your past experiences, surviving your youthful mistakes and learning from them then being motivated enough to apply these aforementioned lessons to your everyday life to fuel you as you pursue your goals. Whatever those goals may be…

Isaiah Dreads – Lights Turn Green [Mixtape Stream + Free Download + New Video]
Isaiah Dreads is part of the shifting culture in the UK underground scene that seems to be changing and breaking the rules, going to places that were once forbidden. Having turned heads with his previous mixtape, aptly named ‘Nothin’ But A Mixtape’, which premiered by Complex and received support from tastemaker platforms Noisey and Pigeons & Planes, as well as recently being hailed as one of the ‘Future Grime Ministers’ by BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart, the west-country rapper reveals release plans for new mixtape, ‘Lights Turn Green’.
Recently celebrating his 18th birthday, the last year of growth and maturity is reflected in beat choices and bars on the new collection. Instrumentation features greatly and is a key ingredient along with his Jamaican roots, which are splashed across tracks with reggaevibes spilling from them such as ‘Snacks’. The laid back ‘How About Now’ and big band inspired ‘Fall Back’ pull in some hefty Jazz inspiration which is completely juxtaposed by the Grime heavy ‘My Team’ and ‘Work’, which are then flipped 180 as Isaiah then whips up the flow again to an 80’s inspired, boom-bap Hip-Hop offering in the form of ‘Brand New’ but it works, It’s eccentric, and it’s fearless.
Introducing the mixtape with the first release ‘Lights Turn Green’, Isaiah Dreads relives the past year and the creation of the tape. The focus is whole-heartedly on music and his aspirations, summing up the necessity for the tape as a whole, not only for himself but for those that have been patiently waiting to hear more from him. With the key led beat, Isaiahdrops a fast flow and presents seriousness to his message via his delivery. The lights have been on red while we’ve waited for the arrival and now we can see the ‘Lights Turn Green’.

MIXTAPE ALERT: TODDLA T MEETS PROTOJE || ENGLAND BE WISE
England meets Jamaica, Reggae meets Grime, Dubstep and Drum & Bass, and Toddla T meets Protoje for the awesome collaborative mixtape ‘England Be Wise’ premiered online via i-D.
Playing on the title of Protoje’s huge track, ‘Kingston Be Wise’, which happened to be the track that first grabbed Toddla T’s attention as a fan, the pair have mixed it up to create a one-off, eclectic, zestful tape full of gems that you’ll only hear once in a lifetime.
Proteje “merks every riddim to the highest degree” as he jumps on the wickedest selection of unexpected beats from Skepta’s ‘That’s Not Me’ to jungle classic ‘The Burial’ from Leviticus, Krept & Konan’s ‘Don’t Waste My Time’ and Schoolboy Q’s ‘Collard Greens’. Bringing that genuine Jamaican Reggae sunshine to some of the deepest, synth filled, 140 Grime beats.
“I was such a fan of him any way, this was a great project to get my hands on because I get to indulge in what he does” says Toddla T. “The whole UK VS Jamaica thing has been prominent in our music and culture for years and years so all I’m doing is doing my spin on it: blending the Reggae with Grime, Dubstep, Drum and Bass, plus they’re all cousins of each other anyway, so for me it was very organic and a fun project, and an honor to work with such a great artist from Jamaica.”
ENGLAND BE WISE, listen up, download it to your music library and soak in the rays of this musical delight.
