So far 3 out the of 4 singles have been released on several formats two on 12' picture disc, and also via download with distribution by Universal Music Group.
Single 1 - Terra Firma, ‘Git Down'
Produced by the infamous Beat Butcha and featuring Klashnekoff, Skriblah & Diamond Ruff, Git Down has endured support by Ras Kwame, Semtex and many of the DJ's on 1Xtra, not to mention Kiss 100's Chubby Kids, DJ MK and Dynamite MC. It also had plays on MTV BASE and was on heavy rotation on Channel U.
Single 2 - Virus Syndicate, ‘Neva Argue'
Straight out of Manchester, Virus Syndicate are known for their Dubstep music. Produced by the Dynamic M.R.K 1. This crew have support ranging from the likes of Westwood right through to Maryanne Hobbs, Annie Mack not to mention Ras Kwame and even Rob Da Bank. ‘Neva Argue' saw play on MTV BASE and was submitted to BASE Europe, was placed on an Itunes Dubstep compilation album, and also made Number 3 in the Channel U chart.
Single 3 - Shameless featuring Bruza, ‘Shame On You'
Shameless, The Paddy Ragga Man, has put himself in a great position over the last few months. Produced by Terror Danjah (one of the UK's Leading Grime produces). Shame On You is not quite Hip Hop, not quite Grime, but has the presence and energy to satisfy both and more. There was much support from the PR world with this track, having many positive reviews in most urban magazines as well as much radio support from a range of DJ's nationwide.
Single 4 - Skinny Man featuring Deadly Hunta, Ballistic Affair
Food4DaBrain has in our opinion saved the best until last, not due for release yet but will be very soon, Ballistic Affair is set to be one of the hardest tracks to come out of the Hip Hop world for 2008 and beyond. It is a high energy piece of music with a positive and conscious direction in lyrics especially with the addition of Deadly Hunta. The verses are penetrating and powerful and will leave the people shouting for more. Ballistic Affair is due for release in July and is set to do big things......!
The rest of the album is done and almost ready to go, artist line up will also include, MCD, Supar Novar, Mr Ti2bs, Ghetto, First and Last, M9, Manage, Lethal, Foreign Beggars and Kashmere Iguana Man. All of these MC's are some of the UK's hardest working. They have been specially selected to form an album that is building toward setting the standard and leading the way forward for Urban Independent music.
