If some of the music I’m hearing (both new and imminent releases) is anything to go by, then it’s pretty safe to say 2012 has already kicked into high gear!
E Tizz’s ‘What I Gotta Say’ is an absolutely sterling example.
The bar is set quite high with this one: ‘the Doctor’, Grammy-nominated GP of DVine Muzic Productions is again at the helm of affairs, and the overall audio styling of this project presses his sound into something strangely different yet familiar at the same time.
Time for one of those pretentious new genre names, methinks: Electro-Synth Hip-hop, anyone..?
The new album is released on February 7th and available for download on iTunes.
It consists 13 tracks, featuring UK and US artists: Jahaziel and Tru2DaName (who – along with E-Tizz also go under the name Forerunnaz), Guvna B, G.P. himself and Ricardo ‘Rocstarr’ Williams.
US guests include vocalist Jai, and one of my favourite US rappers, KJ-52.
Meantime check out the lead single, “Clap Clap” featuring Jai:
Simply Andy’s my ‘iPhone’ featuring Gavin Holligan: no words to add except: LOL!
The song is now available on iTunes.
I wrote this well over a year ago, and never got round to publishing it.
Well, better late than never. 🙂

Benefit to the independent artist
Both these services share revenue with labels and aggregators (good news for independent artists as they can get in on the act too. Example: Guvna B and LZ7 on we7, Victizzle on we7, and Jay Ess on we7).
That means the service can legally stream the music for ‘free’, in the hope that they can make their money back, potentially through advertising.
Business insiders suggest advertising revenue alone cannot sustain the business model for long, but we’ll have to wait and see on that.

Henry Yanney reviews E Tizz’s ‘Sound Of My Soul‘ debut album
It’s never been a surprise that the underground gospel music scene has always spoken highly of Timothy “E-Tizz” Grimwade’s credentials as an artist.
With a number of singles, collaborations and live performances under his belt, 2009 is the year when the MC from South East London finally dropped his album, Sound Of My Soul, which gained a large amount of interest from the public due to him releasing it as a free download.
