This is the first time Rapper KK has rapped in Sinhala, we’ve known him for his time as a dj in the past and a rapper who spits rhymes in English as a solo artist and as part of Unscripted.


IRAJ Ft Nadeera | Shermaine Willis & Master D – Nimnawiye
Touching on the very sensitive subject of abuse & domestic violence, we think that Iraj has done a very good job at putting the spotlight on a topic not a lot of people would touch on. This singe is also the first Sinhala Future Bass which was co-produced by award winner producer – Hibshi.

‘Chimera’ is a 2 track Ep that also features remixes of the 2 by various Djs from the international circuit. This release was through Plankton Repellant.

Hustler Bhai Ft MinnyMe x Mc Go Dravidan x Mc Sanna – Rowdy ( Paathaale 2 )
Kandy has it’s own share of Rappers and Hamdaan Hassan is a name that has been around for quite a few years now. Known for his signature Tamil Rap & collaborations, the rapper & all round creative powerhouse is back with ‘Rowdy’ (Paathale 2), which we think makes for an interesting watch/listen. It also features home based rapper MinnyMe & India’s Mc Go Dravidan & Mc Sanna.

The Soul releases their debut video (a live & edited recording of their recent performance) and it’s for a single they drop at most gigs and this take features Paul Roth on Sax duties.
