Nicky Spesh's creation Butterscotch Espinosa is creating a buzz, September saw him up to his old tricks freestyling with hip hop legends Lords of the Underground in north London. He has broken into the reverbnation top 100 for hip hop and notched up 10,000+ video views in a week.
His debut album 'The World I Know' received critical acclaim getting 5 Stars in IDJ Magazine & DMC Magazine, and his follow up EP "Return to the concubine spaceship" was again awarded 5 stars. He has composed music for documentaries on Sky 1 and Channel 4 and is now making jingles for the itunes top 10 sports podcast http://americarnage.co.uk/ whilst juggling a family and fixing computers for 'the man'.
The summer of 2012 saw a number of high profile DJ's getting sacked for being 'too old' and a new and horribly untrendy demographic of 'festival dads' was identified. Is it possible to grow old and remain current in the internet age? This is the dilemma that Butterscotch Espinosa faces in his new single 'Middle Aged Rap', a record that embraces the onset of age like a drunk embracing a lamppost.
"Its harvest and the cats come in, laid back red eyes "what's happening?" Homework boy! Get the Latin in, no chips tonight 'cos they're fattening."

"The song was inspired by President Obama's 'For All' campaign. We wanted to create an anthem around the inspirational ideals that people around the world are entitled to, no matter your race, religion, sexual preference, political or social views," says Far East Movement's Kev Nish. "We use the crowd at our concerts as the example. When you're at a show experiencing live music, no matter who you're next to, you're experiencing that magic together."

In response to the apathetic sentiment that plagues our nation, Uncommon Records is releasing a free single from Short Fuze & Nasa, In Your Hands Now. This track takes us back through Obama’s historic election in 2008 and how we changed America when we worked together and voted. Just like history was made when Obama was elected, his re-election this year could be known as the moment we banded together and tossed back the threats of those that sought to separate us with hate and sell us off for profit.
