MP3: Stylah - "Killa Team UK Remix"

From 730Promo:

MP3: Stylah - "Killa Team UK Remix"

Stylah, never one to go with the grain has opted for a UK regional lineup for the first official remix to his underground smash Killa.

"Everyone draws for their people or who's hot in London for most remixes, in the US remixes unite different markets and regions from across the whole of the States so that's what I wanted to do with this version - put together a real team UK with people repping from all over".

Featuring on the remix are some of the hottest talent from outside the capital including Malik (MD7) from Birmingham, R.I.O. from Manchester, Wariko from Notts, K.Ners from Bristol and Kof from Liverpool.

"Life's easy, Death is hard..."

Dealing with the lost of a loved one is a pain that's hard to describe. Even those who've felt it before may not fully understand how it affects them. David "Disco D" Shayman really made a profound impact on my life, even after his passing. His presence in this world was expressed in many different forms. He was a DJ, Producer, Son, Mentor, Businessman, Leader, Entrepreneur, Trendsetter and Pioneer but to me he simply was a great friend. Four years ago, he committed suicide and I have never fully recovered from this incident. Truthfully, I don't think I ever will.

Friendship is also a term that many may find difficult to articulate. True friends are very rare characters who appear ion the story of your life, and thankfully Disco D was written within a chapter of mines. I only knew him for a short period of time, but those moments were some of the most critical of my life thus far. His was the brightest fire, extinguished far before it's time but I refuse his life to be remembered as a mere ember. I wrote this song to help raise awareness for people like him. For the families and friends he left behind. For the lives that can be saved.

Often in death, we think about the "What if's". What if I had saw the signs? What if I had intervened? What if I heard the cries for help? It's questions like these plague and torment us but I've learned that you must be aware of these questions in life. So with that being said, I ask you to please help me continue and honor my friends legacy by helping to save the life of someone you know. Someone who may be a total stranger. Anyone who may suffer the same fate as David did. Please be aware.

If you would like to help support the cause of Suicide Prevention I have selected a charity to which you can donate called the "American Foundation of Suicide Prevention". I am in no way, shape or form affiliated with this organization and I won't receive a cent. I just believe that they understand this devastating problem which afflicts many people within our communities and are doing many things to help prevent these type of tragedies.


David "Disco D" Shayman. Until we meet again.

MP3: A-WOLL Ft. Nottz - "Active"

Nottz Teams With Compton MC For Latest Collaborative Track

The Single:

While Grammy Award-winning producer/rapper Nottz continues to ride high on the 2010 release of his debut solo album, You Need This Music, 2011 figures to be another busy year for the Virginia-based artist. Starting off the new year on a high note, Nottz is releasing a new collaborative track, with Compton, California rapper A-WOLL. The two originally linked in 2010 - A-WOLL cites Nottz as his favorite producer - and the resulting effort is "Active," a fusion of A-WOLL's street oriented raps with Nottz bass heavy boom-bap, which will appear on A-WOLL's debut album, To Whom It May Concern, scheduled for a 2011 release.

Nottz' You Need This Music is available now via Raw Koncept Media Group.
