*Edit: You can now download the mixtape from us here - The Streets – Cyberspace & Reds
The Streets has been quiet for a few years now and there has been talk that the upcoming album ‘Computers and Blues’ will be the last, at least the last as a ‘The Streets’ album. The Streets has been putting in work since the last days of UK Garage through the start of Grime and up until now, so when we heard a mixtape was coming along with the release of the new album we had to put up a post about it. Also it sounds like it might be a bit grimier and MC orientated than what you may get on the album with mentioned features from the likes of Kano, Trim, Loudmouth and Wretch. Heres the post from the official Streets blog-
the cyberspace and reds mixtape album (not to be confused with computers and blues) is coming together. engorged with guest vibes from the likelihood of Trim, Loudmouth, Wretch and hopefully Kano aswell as at least that again twice over of barzmen that have influenced and inspired me over the course of my 10 years in the game. some HOT POTATO shit. I will be posting the ZIPPETY ZIP as soon as the mousework and knob twiddling has terminated. it’s a grimey race against the timer
i was also thinking seeing as we crowd sourced the cover artwork (thanks again to @lukeferrar), maybe we should crowd source some barz. so I’ll post up a beat on bln.kr tommorow and then if anyone thinks they’re any good at rapping they should spit on it and post it back up there. if any of them are overly boom we’ll put them on the the final work of darts. mix it up like gumbo
and if you want to pre-order Computers and Blues it can be done here
Dont forget to check back here for the mixtape, as usual we are the first place to come for when you’re checking for new mixtapes!!
