rockthedub radio: March 2018 Edition

Read more » | No Comments »


It's not that often that an episode of RTDR lands on this site's birthday, but that's where we're at in 2018. We're talking motherfucking 12(!) years of this site being a thing in some way, shape, or form. We used to do free compilations, but the kids apparently don't download music anymore, so here's a fire hour-ish worth of our favorite tracks from the month of March.

In this edition, we've got a pretty wide variety of material here. Brand spanking new material from The Weeknd, Logistics, and DJ ESCO (alongside Nas and Future) as well as a stellar cut from Blocks & Escher's new album on Metalheadz, cuts from Pac Div, Riko Dan, Ross From Friends, and the homey DJ Taye. You know how WE do.

Boxed Turns Five With Massive 25-Track Compilation

No Comments »


When it comes to copping on sight in the grime world, nothing gets better than the Boxed collective. Something about their wave, which ranges from the more cloud-y fanciful sound to the more intense 8-bar madness, always gets me open. This Friday, Boxed is celebrating their fifth birthday at Bloc in London (cop tickets ASAP), and they put out a huge 25-track compilation, which you can grab for whatever you want to pay right now. Featured acts include Grandmixxer, Trends, Inkke, Gundamn Masro, and many more. Stream the full comp below and turn up via Bandcamp.

We're back with our favorites from February; sorry for the delay. There's a boatload of lit rap to start, with new material from YG, Nipsey Hussle, SOB X RBE, and that BlocBoy JB featuring Drake song. We also get into some feisty electronic beats, including new drum & bass from Hybris, Bensley, and Need For Mirrors, as well as gems from Wiley, S-Type, and the Foreign Beggars.
