Grand Analog – Modern Thunder

By ,
6.5/10

A thick, rich record of stylistically diverse hip hop that stands to annoy as many as is delights.

Tourist – Patterns EP 7/10

By ,
7/10

A small but select sample of chilled Summer beats from Ministry Of Sound.

Fear Of Men – Loom

By ,
9/10

A record as brilliantly complex as water, the natural wonder Fear of Men so often invoke – deep, refreshing and mysterious.

Nas – Illmatic XX

By ,
10/10

Nas’ debut is reissued again as it turns twenty, and the source material remains the greatest record in hip hop history.

Kelis – Food

By ,
8/10

Kelis turns her back on big-beats for big-bowls of brass-flavoured soul and funk, with tasty results.

Iggy Azalea – The New Classic

By ,
8/10

If you’ve got your sights set on stardom, on making a name for yourself, Azalea’s the role model you should adore. Let her gospel be an allegory for your rise.
