The Programme is the latest release from Abnoxshuz Ent. and Spynal Records. MAB,EdXL and Diligent Fingers have joined forces for this EP which sees Diligent Fingers handle all the production which gives it a cohesive feel yet still has each beat sounding completely fresh and separate to each other making it a real treat for the ears.
UK HipHop fans will be very familiar with MAB from his solo work and with his group Three Headed Beast and he has been one of the most consistently dope artists over the last few years.
Diligent Fingers has also carved out a solid name for himself over the years whether that be rapping, producing or for his brief stint battling on the Don’t Flop Channel . EdXL will also be no stranger to fans most notably for his work with Gadget and as a part of Abnoxshuz and Spynal Records.
After numerous collaborations between this trio over the years they have got together for a full EP,with no other artists featured the 3 M.C.’s hold proceedings down easily.
The EP opens with the song Tune In which starts with someone tuning a radio obviously looking for the correct Programme before it settled on the actual song which is a clear statement of intent with the horn driven production it’s perfect to hype you up for the rest of the EP.
Next up is Back Through The Ages with an excellent piano sample it’s a perfect reminiscing track,this was one of the highlights for me and I felt a great sense of nostalgia listening to the three M.C.’s back to back rhymes.
On the track Family they express their love for their kin as many a musician will tell you choosing this path family duties can appear to be secondary when in fact it’s our families driving us on,our birth ones and our musical family.
Another highlight was the aggressive Lightnin’ Rod with it’s sinister beat,another great battle cry from the trio. They close out the EP with Scratchin’ The Surface
which hopefully means there is more to come from them. This is a great EP that deserves to be supported and is only a couple of pounds to buy either digitally or on CD,you can get it on bandana from the link below.
