Death of Autumn/Overcast Album Launch Unplugged, a one off HipHop/Grime special
What would happen if two of the most hard hitting Hiphop and Grime artists were stripped of their usual electronically produced beats and were made to spit their finest verses, accompanied by nothing but the keys of a grand piano?
In this unique performance, North-East urban music legends Rick Fury and HB will both perform their albums (Death of Autumn & Overcast) as well as some of their stone cold classic tracks alongside a professional pianist in an intimate pop-up gig in the bar area of Alphabetti. Expect b-boy lyrical flows re-imagined like never before.
Rick Fury is undoubtedly one of the North East's finest and most hard working emcees. His remarkable story-telling ability, sincerity, humour and masterful wordplay have gained him wide recognition as one of the best.
Constantly writing, performing and making music,both as a solo artisit and in collaborations... Rick truly does live and breathe his art.
His new album 'Fist of Fury' is out now and available here: killamari.bandcamp.com/album/fist-of-fury
HB - Review of Overcast
Widely regarded as one of the top grime acts to ever do it in the North East, H-Man and Just B AKA HB have raised the bar once again with their new album ‘Overcast’.
Kicking off the nine-track project in top gear is title track “Overcast”; a 100mph introduction to the lightning in a bottle style that’s helped cement HB’s reputation as the best grime emcees in the North East. Just B’s razor-sharp enunciation acts as the Ying to H-Man’s frenzied animalistic Yang, both delivering with that unashamedly Geordie twang to create a sound that’s truly unique – no one sounds like HB.
As far as grime in the North East goes, this album is nothing less than seminal. HB are pioneering what it means to make grime music and come from Newcastle; everything from their lyrics down to their delivery is 100% authentic, not compromising a shred of individuality in the hopes that it might appeal to the southern tastemakers. However, it’s not just authenticity that makes this album standout, it’s the entire gloomy atmosphere it captures, as well as the Jekyll and Hyde-like sonic contrast from Just B to H-man that makes each track so entertaining.
