We had the chance to get to know Bilal through various Hip Hop songs as the guy who sings the choruses and sh*t, but lets take a moment to enjoy his singing. Nah, not just his singing. His voice, his spirit, his lyrics and Adrian Younge‘s magic fingers on the Rhodes piano. Goodnight, good morning, whatever.. Any time of the day, this is butter for the ears.
Somethin’ to mellow out to.
Nottingham native, Cappo, first entered the world of hip-hop as a grafitti writer, and started rapping at an early age. By ’95 he was rapping daily, and was one half of a two man group. No releases, but the experience was enough to boost him to go for self, and he went on to do his first proper live show at Nottingham Carnival, summer ’97. Since then a regular on the Notts scene, and renowned for holding his own against any emcees, local or international.
Not one to sit on his mic, Caps has been well busy on the production tip, and his First Knight 3 track demo in summer ’98 was soon followed up by his self-produced self-financed 15 track demo album The Cap Tape Volume One, leading to an approach from SON, a track being featured on Disorda’s UK artist’s showcase Mind The Gap series, and a four-star album review in HHC.
Since then he has released his first piece of vinyl, the Cap 3000 EP in ’99, appeared on one of the best received tracks That’s The Way It Goes, on the Lost Island album Forbidden Ground and the killer posse track 7even on the recent Mad Doctor X Project X 2 EP. He has also released his first full length LP Spaz the World on Brighton based label, Zebra Traffic.
I can’t remember the last time I heard something so dope from ’99.
An interesting and creative song called Many Days from the long awaited debut album from Manchester Rapper/Producer Ellis Meade. This 20 track LP is a masterclass in versatility and creative ability from the Room2 Records Co-Founder, with Ellis doing more than the lion’s share of vocals AND production, not to mention the heap of music videos he has directed and edited for the project.

The third and the last day Fresh Island Festival was non-stop party till the early morning, with Tim Westwood, Big Narstie, Cut Killer, Dj Target, Pusha T, Stormzy, Jme and more. Lots of people, positive energy, sweat, wonderful sound & vibe and beautiful sunrise at the end is an excellent way to finish a festival.
Legendary French Dj – Cut Killer was amazing with his great, great set on Papaya stage.
Pusha T started rocking about half an hour earlier it was planned. His fans were, of course, thrilled too see him. Vibe was great during the whole perfomance. Pusha was nailing it with Nosetalgia, Numbers on the Boards, Future‘s Move That Dope and more. He was also spitting on Chief Keef‘s Don’t Like beat. Oh, yeah, he also rapped his verse from Kanye‘s Runaway. Feedback was excellent, as expected. Towards the end, he kept reminding the crowd that We aint done! after each song. He was rocking (only) about 45min, but it was hell of a concert.
Skepta, unfourtunately, couldn’t make it to Fresh Island. BUT! People were more than happy to see and hear his brother JME on Kalypso stage. Him, great Stormzy and the Noisey crew were keeping the wild crowd on their feet till 6am. They were playing various tracks and all of them were perfect for what the people needed – having a great time.
