Another cut from The Foreign Exchange's 'Love In Flying Colors' gets the visual treatment. This time around keys propelled head-nodder 'Better' with with Erro and Shana Tucker both getting in on the act with a vocal masterclass on this track. And to top it off the video is equally as infectious as the song just due to the fact they evidently just said "lights, camera,...

The original cut from 2013's 'Black Radio 2' saw Jill Scott hit us with that vintage vibe similar to that of classics 'Gettin' In 'The Way' & 'A Long Walk' we can't go as far as saying anything is a standout from the LP though as every track is a solid piece of musicianship. Any beatmaker or producer given the opportunity to remix a song...

The first I heard of Lucille Ghatti was when I stumbled across a track called 'Ya Girl Lurks (Luv You Boi)' back in 2012 at the time I was working on a mixtape entitled 'While You Were Sleeping' which was to feature a bunch of track which I was fuming were flying so far under the radar at the time (which I am now going to have to revisit).  I remember at the time comparing...

Here we have another song that we wish we had shown some more love but unfortunately it surfaced in that end and beginning of the year period where the mind can get fuzzy and make you forget even the most important things. On the upside seeing a reminder in my facebook on a hectic Monday morning was a pleasing to the ear and by lunch I'd learned a new song.  Subjectiveness aside I feel...

Over the course of the festive period and new year Dr had been puttin' in work as usual and though we are yet to see any post 'The Doctor's Note' material we expect nothing less than for there to be work in progress on something new. But in the meantime here we have a live lounge rendition of without a doubt one of my fave Chima Anya tracks. I believe 'What Now' is a good...

One of 2013's dopest releases so far gets some visuals and like many De La tracks that came before this one, though not as groundbreaking as some of the videos of the 90s golden era certainly evokes not only the spirit of the Wu but also memories of the days of Yo! MTV Raps. The groups consistency has them right up there with Tribe and Gang Starr in terms of the material they put out and this...

The track actually dropped some time ago and we can only assume that there has been a little delay to further news on the coming of the 'They Die By Dawn' LP and movie due to Jeymes Samuel's taking part in the making of  baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'. The movie premiered at SXSW to great acclaim by the lucky few fans and press that have already had...

The Flyotw and Vibe partnership are proud to present the impressively slick looking Behind The Beats Noire Series.
