Friday night longtime MIR favourite Hayley Cassidy dropped her first new material for a couple of years. The Stripped album has been a long time coming and it was certainly worth the wait. Hayley delivers the kind of RnB that music lovers have been screaming for. Production is ridiculous with some wonderful vocal arrangements. Hayley as always is sounding amazing her runs and vocal character always help her to stand out as one of the best around and give it a distinct British London feel. Standout tracks would be 360, the classic Far Away and the title track Stripped. Awesome quality its free so get downloading NOW!

New music for 2013 from Our favourite spoken word don G.R.E.E.d.S. This is an ode to growing up in South London in the late 90s. Rhyming over a beat that has a classic 90s Hip Hop laidback groove reminiscent of Tribe Called Quest. Tippa joins him talking about life in the ends. As a South London native i can overly relate and allows me to reminisce for others get an idea of what South London Life was like.
