Mikill Pane: Read My Lips

One of our favourite lyricists, Mikill Pane has dropped some absolutely crazy visuals for his banger 'Read My Lips' featuring Ben Clemo, taken from the recently released Guiness & Blackcurrant EP! So make sure you head over to iTunes to grab the full EP. Video after the jump!

Ed Sheeran: Give Me Love (Acoustic)

One of my favourite tracks from Ed's album '+', here is the red headed wonder delivering a rather lovely acoustic version for Mark Waters.

Ohh, it could put a tear in your eye!

Dr Seuss: Trailer

Ok, so Zac Efron might have lent his voice, but so did the amazing Betty 'Golden Girls' White. On the search for the now-distinct tree (this could actually happen people!), this Danny DeVito starring animations is directed by Despicable Me mainman Chris Renaud and looks like it could be quite amazing. Plus, who doesn't love a bit of Dr. Zeuss!

Kano & Mikey J Ft. Maxsta: Alien

That's a nice G-Shock you're wearing Maxsta!

Another huge track to drop from Kano and producer Mikey J's EP 'not 4 The A List'.

Download for free from Kano's Facebook

Jay Norton: Off The Record

Taking Tinchy's latest Calvin Harris produced single and a little touch of Oh My's 'Dirty Dancer', Liverpool singer/ songwriter Jay Norton delivers yet another amazing mash-up...


Check more Jay mash-up's after the 'jump'....

Duck Sauce: Big Bad Wolf

The video everyone's talking about. This might not be entiiiirely safe for work - it's not rude, just very. very odd and very, very funny.

 Duck Sauce AKA A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, we salute you.

Sway: Still Speedin

Sampling Black Box, Derek Safo is seeing a huge amount of support for this absolutely mammoth track. Not only attracting over 300,000 views on Youtube, Sway has also won the love of Nigel Mansell and Lewis Hamilton - both of whom he namechecks in the tune.

This has hit written all over it. A welcome return for one of the UK's most talented rhymers!

Drake: The Album Is On The Way

Yes, yes it is. It's so much on the way, they've ('they' being his record label presumably) even made a little film for us as proof. In this 2.13 minute clip we are reminded that Drake works with Nicki Minaj, has made some rather ace songs and had had quite a few hairstyles (we're not so keen on the grown out hair version Drake, fyi). There's also a tiny clip of the new video and a sneak peak of the album artwork. Exciting stuff, eh!

Drake's second album Take Care is out November 14. Yes, really, it is!

The Avengers: Trailer

Samuel L Jones channeling his inner Gabrielle? Scar-Jo with a red bob? Downey Jr. in full deadpan lol mode?

Oh HI The Avengers. This combination of many of Marvel' comics superheros in a battle to the bitter end isn't out till next year, but with FX, explosions and an a-list cast, it looks like a big old hit for director Joss 'Buffy' Whedon.

Sherlock Holmes: Trailer

The arrival of the new Sherlock Holmes trailer - and what a trailer it is. Robert Downey Jr., doesn't he wear a dress well!

The new Guy Ritchie sequel arrives later this year...

Emeli Sande Ft. Naughty Boy: Daddy

After wowing X-Factor audiences by performing with Professor Green (Read All About It) last night, it looks like Emeli has another hit on her hands. Watch out for a sneaky shot of Naughty Boy too - the super-producer (Wiley, Chipmunk, Sande, Cheryl Cole, Pro Green, Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis) is currently readying his own release for next year. Once you've watched this video, go and buy yourself a ticket for Emeli's tour - if there's any left! Tuesday 1 November: Glasgow, Oran Mor
Wednesday 2 November: Edinburgh, The Caves
Thursday 3 November Manchester, Deaf Institute
Saturday 5 November: Bristol, The Fleece
Sunday 6 November: Brighton, Ballroom
Monday 7 November: London, Tabernacle
Tuesday 29 November: London, KOKO
Saturday 3 December: Aberdeen, Music Hall

Example: Midnight Run

Oh yeah, we totally get this video. (We don't really get this video to be honest, but Example says he doesn't really either so it's ok). (It is very good though!)

Dot Rotten: Keen It On A Low

Premiered by Mistajam, the South London MC is one to watch in the coming months. With a video currently being cut by Luke Monaghan, this track could be the tipping point to chart success. Epic, in a word.

RWD: A Visual Testament

Happy 10th Birthday to RWD Magazine!

In this documentary that celebrates a decade in the life of the seminal mag (if I do say myself!), the likes of Tinchy, Wretch, Semtex, Ms. Bratt, Davinche and Newham Generals talk about the impact RWD has had on the underground scene, and how it helped their own careers.

Fuda Guy: Sky's The Limit

Who said grime was dead!

 Fuda Guy - member of Ruff Sqwad alongside Tinchy Stryder, Slix and Rapid, and Tinchy's hype man on occasion - has teamed with VA-Garments and G-Shock Videos to create this hot slice of rock-grime-bassy-niceness.

The 'Caramel skinned Cockney', who has been 'rhyming since '06' goes in hard on this beautifully shot video.

The Collective: Teardrop

The supremely swarve Gary Barlow, AKA him off the tele, has gathered together some of the finest voices in urban pop for a charity single in aid of Children In Need. The Take That singer and writer is joined by Ed Sheeran, Tinchy, Chipmunk, Ms. Dynamite, Tulisa, Wretch 32, Rizzle Kicks, Mz Bratt, Dot Rotten and Labrinth. A great cause and an interesting track! Video on its way apparently. Bet Gary had fun co-ordinating all of those schedules!

Angry Birds: Football

Now, I'm not so bothered about football (unless it's the World Cup, obvs), but I am very bothered about Angry Birds. Excited to play this lil beauty!

Example - Midnight Run (Flux Pavillion Remix)

Those dirty dubsteppers twist up Ex's latest smash to rather brilliant effect. It's not Friday, is it? It should be. This makes me want to paaaartttyyyyy!

20% Sale

Brick Lane. This weekend. Be there.

Mistajam & Snoop: Throw Your Dubs Up

Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ Mistajam has teamed with the Snoop D-O-GG to produce a Dubstep mixtape ahead of the West Coast rap legend’s UK tour which kicks off tomorrow night. Featured on the free download are The Dogg Pound, Busta, R Kelly as well as our own Professor Green, D Double E, P Money and True Tiger “Dubstep has been on my radar for a few years now,” says Snoopy, who previously freestyled over Chase & Status's 'Eastern Jam' and also Tinie's 'Pass Out'. “I really like the hard-hitting beats of Dubstep because it compliments the real gangsta lyrics of West Coast rap. That’s why I had to team up with the U.K. homie, MistaJam because he’s the master of Dubstep…the pioneer!” Jammy himself is rather haps about the hook-up too. “When I heard Snoop was a fan of the Dubstep sound and I was approached to work on this project with him after he heard my radio show, I jumped at the chance. It’s a real testament to the worldwide strength of the UK Bass scene that I’ve been actively pushing over the past few years that the legend that is Snoop approached me to work on this project with him. I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to achieve and hope this will be the next chapter in the UK Bass world takeover!” Download this piece of greatness for free from here.

Wiley Ft. Manga: Strange Clouds

Wiley and his Roll Deep buddy remix of B.o.B's Lil Wayne featuring song. Particularly loving the "I've been to hell and heaven and back/ Then back to hell and heaven and back/ Pour a drink for the dons who ain't here/ Like an old film, Cape Fear..."

Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn [Trailer]

Steven 'ET' Speilberg and Peter 'Lord of the Rings' Jackson? Animation from Jackson's Weta FX company flies to new levels on this new film featuring the voices of Daniel Craig, Jamie Bell and Andy Serkis. Basically, this will be a massive hit. The end. <a href='' target='_new' title='MSN Exclusive: The Adventures of Tintin - trailer' >Video: MSN Exclusive: The Adventures of Tintin - trailer</a>

Spiderman Trailer

One for the gamers out there...

Alex Clare: Up All Night (Skream Remix)

Another delicious banger from the Croydon dubstepper (sandwiched here between Yasmin, Sheeran and Example) as he takes on Alex Clare. And wins!

Stooshe: Betty Woz Gone

This three piece have what we believe is known as a whole lotta 'tude! Courtney, Alex and Karis arre bringing back the TLC feel to UK R&B and we like it. We like it a lot. Wicked lyrics to this song too.

Russo: You Changed Me

This Polydor signed singer is one of our favourite new females. Love that the red-haired south Londoner has her own style and sound.

Emeli Sande: Daddy

The next single to drop from the Scottish singer. Tuuuuuuuuuuuuuune. In a word.

Skepta: Hold On

Joseph Junior Adenuga goes for Gold in this latest track. First place on the podium for the Boy Better Know'er...

Mr Bathing Ape

Yes, they do a great line in hoodies and trainers, but every one needs to smarten up now and then. Earlier this year, BAPE's Nigo launched his grown-up line, taking inspiration from Savile Row. This is the second collection from the Mr line and very dapper it is too.
