New Tracks from The Colony

The Colony, the group consisting of MC's Conspicuous, Willo Wispa, Grimlok and Sir Smurf Lil', have dropped us all a little gift - three to be precise. Off their forthcoming mixtape 'The Empire' come 'English Kids', 'Find a Way' and 'Understand' and these are available at their myspace page. The mixtape will be released on newly formed label ,Ottomanelfmusic.

The free tracks are great examples of how the UK is producing the real Hip Hop. 'English Kids' has a brooding, electronic beat with some chilling patriotic lyrics to match. 'Find a Way' is built around a good time soul sample and has that necessary summer vibe, the group chat intelligently and with lyrical dexterity over the beat. 'Understand' follows a similar template to 'English Kids' but comes as their statement of intent.
