Hippity HopNov 02, 2013
Hello all and welcome to KUK's rather lovely blog! Every week we'll be posting useful and interesting things for you to read and hear to keep you even more in touch with what's new - and old - in British music!
This week Madeline rode solo on the airwaves giving you guys a look into UK Hip Hop, but not before paying tribute to The Velvet Underground founder and music legend Lou Reed. Although he wasn’t British he was heavily inspired by British music, so hearing him collaborate with Gorillaz on the track “Some Kind of Nature” was certainly a treat.
Another song that has made a lot of traction since its release last year is “Watchtower” by Delvin, featuring a hook and rhythm taken directly from Jimi Hendrix’s cover of “All Along the Watchtower” by Bob Dylan – sung by none other by Ed Sheeran. Produced by Labrinth, “Watchtower” is a great hybrid of British indie and hip-hop. For more songs that were played check out the playlist in its entirety below, and we’ll see you next week for more music new and old from the United Kingdom!
