Often people say things online that they wouldn’t say in real life, and ‘Friends’ is about that scenario.”

DillanPonders Drops ‘THE BOY WHO DIED’ LP

THE BOY WHO DIED reframes death into a story of rebirth. It closes the loop on a series of projects and represents a new launching point for DillanPonders. His 2014 mixtape, THE BOY WHO LIVED, was based on the reckless, drug-fuelled and hard partying scene where he first made his name. That lifestyle eventually drove him into a deep depression, in which he hit rock bottom and found himself homeless, sleeping in bus shelters and bank lobbies.

On THE BOY WHO DIED, Ponders reflects on rising from that low point, the crippling pain as his life came crashing down around him, the sweat of dragging himself out of a hole he dug, and the inspiration of achieving small successes on the path to his ultimate dream of a healthy life and sustainable music career.

The album is entirely produced by Australian powerhouse BVB, and the loan feature comes from the Grammy-nominated legendary Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman.

THE BOY WHO DIED represents a new awakening for Ponders and chapter in his career. Forget what you thought you knew about him, with this release he’s leaving his past behind.

Cancel your plans, sit back, roll a Backwood, and get ready for THE BOY WHO DIED.

Code Name Theory set the world to rights over weed, tea & boom bap beats with new album ‘Sounds About Right!’

In the mid-2000s, with the public anger from the Iraq war still fresh, and the UK Hip Hop scene struggling to assert itself following the collapse of Lowlife Records, an energised, passionate sub-scene emerged, centred around the legendary open mic night Speakers Corner.

One of the central figures in the movement was South London rapper, Manage whose album ‘Live in Protest’ captured the essence of this era. This was followed up with projects as part of Chain of Command, and later the super-group Caxton Press whose debut album won Wordplay Magazine’s Album of the Year award.

Since then, the crew have gone their separate ways and Manage has linked up with Blitz, to form a new duo, CNT (Code Name Theory).

Blitz describes himself as “a retired astronaut now a ground troop in the concrete jungle”. He raps with an urgency which is juxtaposed against his laid-back, stoner persona.

The CNT project mixes kitchen-sink-realism with humorous, weed-tinged streams of consciousness and an appreciation for cups of tea. The production is mostly handled by Manage, with additional contributions from Kolak47 and Hutch.

The sound is predominantly the crunching, boom-bap synonymous with underground London Hip Hop, punctuated with some slightly more airy production, providing the platform for some more introspective lyricism. Manage and Blitz share a chemistry which elevates the music beyond the quality beats and bars. It gives you a glimpse into their world. CNT – Sounds About Right out now on Revorg Records.
