Saskilla – Godson 1.5 EP

“Ooh Ahh Saskilla”

The Greenborough legend (word to Tinie Tempah), Saskilla could be considered a pioneer, when we look back at the classic and definitive Grime anthems, Gash By The Hour is definitely in there. Since, he has given us sound upon sound, style upon style, to most recently, where has working heavily behind the scenes to push the culture forward. He’s definitely playing his part in laying the foundation.

And so he returns to the forefront, with Godson 1.5

The 5 track EP, providing an insight into Saskilla’s evolution as an artist. In an effort to further establish the British perspective, he kicks things off with something very British and relevant to the scene, JD Bag. It’s a great mural of past and present as spins through the production, bringing you up to date. A standout track possibly, Nuttin Like Us, featuring Lady Leshurr & Big Narstie, it has the feel of the ol’ days, but it’s a very current track, with all three delivering on their verses. In regards to his work behind the scenes, the next track is evidence of that, as he enlists the features of Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay and the Bawse himself, Rick Ross, for the DJ Cameo exclusive, also featuring Scruffizzer. Solomons Temple, a track that will definitely go off live, before finishing up with Fam, with verses from Canadian Tre Mission and the legend, Wiley.

Saskilla hasn’t missed a beat when it comes to the music, as ever a component of Grime, he’s certainly someone who has his finger on the pulse, as he looks to elevate the sound higher.

NEW BRAND FLEXX ..UK Stand Up!!

With around two million myspace views between them, trend setters Boya D and Sas K are established names within the underground, as part of New Brand Flexx, the talented duo have been at the forefront of creativity and innovation as artists in the UK, with hits, shows and adolation in their ammo, it is only fair for them to take a shot at the mainstream.

Having already seen SasKilla perform a few freestyles at a recent video shoot, I kind of knew what to expect, even then he further impressed me, they say two things that an artist needs to be successful is charisma (character as a person, something that fans can take to) and talent (obviously, the main product), Saskilla has both and plenty of it, the best thing about this set however, is Boya D unleashes the flow I knew he was keeping reserve and that was the highlight for me.

this Westwood set features two new artists, who do well, it shows the realness of Boya and Sas, to bring acts through. For me personally the star was Boya, simply because I did not expect it, together both Boya and Saskilla have every reason to make it to the top, this set underlines their versatility, away from loud colours and party tracks, they show that they can emcee at the highest level.
