With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Having been nothing more of a legend, a myth, a hopeful hearsay for grime and garage fans all over, the release of Kurupt FM’s mixtape is the stuff dreams are made of. Legend has it the tape was recorded by an anonymous fan an undisclosed amount of years ago, documenting a legendary set broadcast across their network. The comedic collective come garage heroes, made up of Steves, Chabuddy G, DJ Beats, Decoy and fronted by the best MC in the galaxy, Grindah, have gained an international following for not only their characters, but for their surprisingly good beats and bars combo, reminiscent of the 00’s peak of the garage genre. While they often play jokers on their massively popular show and mockumentary The People Just Do Nothing, The Lost Tapes is full of some serious sounds and features from some of the most serious in the game, with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, DJ Zinc, pop sensation Sia and the godfather of grime Wiley offering their talents to the twenty-two track mixtape.
