“Let It Snow” *1Xtra Xmas Show Presented By Charlie Sloth*

12 months later and here we are again facing Christmas through our twinkling windows, and tinsel laden trees. Whilst the month has got colder and our clothes have got thicker, the cold breeze appears to have given 1 of our well loved DJ’s; 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth, a winter wonderland of an idea. Echoing the thoughts of many of us, and fed up of listening to ‘Rocking around the Christmas tree’ Sloth decided to make a charming new Christmas tune with an urban twist, and what a success it has become.

Featuring the likes of Starboy Nathan, G Frsh,Bigz, Smiler, Dru Blu, Lethal Bizzle, Lioness,Lady Leshurr, Sway, Sincere, Mic Righteous and a cheeky appearance from Vernon Kay this Christmas hit truly has brought Christmas songs into the 21st century. These All-Stars are not the only talents involved in producing a special Christmas treat, because the UK’s super talented Labrinth was also involved – selecting the beat for the track titled ‘Let it Snow’.

Tinie Tempah *Happy Birthday EP/ Review, Stream,Download*

Disturbing London UK rapper “Tinie Tempah” as we all known has had a superb year in 2011 with great success with “Disc-overy” here and overseas in The States, and its seems Tinie is basically giving all his fans free music to end the year. The New Cd called “Happy Birthday Ep” was thought up and put together around “Tinie Tempah” birthday hence the title, the CD features “Chipmunk“, “J Cole”, “Giggs”, “Krept and Konan“, “Tinchy Stryder” and many more, check the tracklist here:

Tracklist:
01. Happy Birthday

“Like It or Love It” was the first release from the CD and the tune is one to defiantly check out, https://theestliving.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/like-it-or-love-it-tinie-tempahwretch-32-and-jcole/
check what The Established Living thinks about “Like It or Love It” Produced By SX(StayFresh).
“Tinie Tempah” continued the early buzz he was creating and released “Lucky C**t” with man of the moment “Big Sean” who is signed to “G.O.O.D Music” which was produced by North Londons finest Producer “Wizzy Wow”, this tune is another “One To Check Tune”, the energy in this is immense.

“100 K” Produced By SX which features fellow “Disturbing London” artist “G-Frsh”, “Tinchy Stryder” and “Krept& Konan” is the stand out tune for us at The Established Living, guaranteed to make you get up and stomp your feet or bang your head, every artist delivers their lyrics in a crazy way, each artist got in their zone, which is always good to see, defiantely a track to repeat .

“F**k It I’m Gone” which features UK signer “J Warner” is another “One To Check Tune” simply because the chorus is powerful and simple, the way “Tinie Tempah” attacks the tune, deserves your full attention, Tinie T is just comfortable and confident on this one, delivers fast flows and makes strong statements.

“You Know What” is the definition of the real “Tinie Tempah” having fun on a beat and just showing his skill once again, Tinie saved this for the last song on the tracklist simply because its the tune the Rapper delivers his attitude and its a powerful way to end the CD.

With all that in mind, each tune is worthy and all maintain that strong level of being classed as a hit, but the four i mentioned will have you bumping and dancing around for a long time. This is only a Birthday EP which was released as a freebie, The Established Living is scared to think what level “Tinie Tempah” could obtain on his next album, just look at the tracklist for the features and imagine what could be next.

Marger SBTV F64 *New Heat*

One of the big movers in Grime this year “Marger” has been putting in the work in 2011, with 4 Visuals My Thing Ft “Sibling” , Goonz Ft “Scruffizer” & “No Lay“(both heavyweights in the Grime scene),Shadows Ft “Molly” and This Year Ft “Josh Osho” its clear to see “Marger” has been hard at work and heavily flying the flag for the Grime scene in 2011, releasing singles, releasing a mixtape/Ep entitled “Kushwave” catching the attention of “360 Records” who are the label home of “Devlin”, “Lethal Bizzle” and other big names, The buzz that “Marger” is due to receive from his 2011 work up to the release of the overdue “Cheeky EP” which is set to be released in 2012, is going to be a great success for him and the Grime scene.

Following the controversy which follows “Margers” clash with “Lay-z” in the Grime DVD “Lord Of The Mics 3” “Marger” hooked up with “SBTV” to do a “F64” session and it seems “Marger” and his grime sound is here to say, many say the grime scene is dead and many do not pay attention, but after this session people may have to reconsider if this is what the New Wave of Grime holds.

Need For Speed The Run *Review*

The Established Living is back to the gaming as we have ignored this section for a while, since the last blog on the games, we have played NFS Run which came out in the last months of 2011, NFS is known for being one of the challenging and strong racing games, this game like most of the NFS series involves top line cars, many unlockables and a intense storyline which throws shocks in between.

“The Run” part of the game basically is the main career part where a street racer is on the run from mobsters and has to obtain a big amount of money to clear his debt, a middle woman in the racing scene helps the main character and tells them about a big race from “San Francisco” To “New York”, to conquer this game quickly and effective it all depends your car selection and how much awareness you have as anything can happen.

Check The Official Trailer here:

Playing this game was a joy, as it seemed the game mixed characteristics from “Heavy Rain”, with the interaction of using the controller pad to get through certain situations during the storyline and the overall look of the game reminds The Established Living of the fight em up “Def Jam Icon” which was a strong game when it was released.

Check some visuals of the Gameplay Here:

The storyline and overall game completion was a disappointment because its like the storyline got shortened but also it seems like a cliff hanger is they’re was to be a NFS RUN 2 in the future. Outside of the main storyline there is other stuff to complete through the journey to san Franciso to New York, where your driving level builds up and finally you reach driver level 24 and win the other cars in the game like the “Bugatti Veyron” and “Lamboriginhi Gallardo”,“Pagani Zonda” and “Mclaren MP4-12 C”

K Koke *Welcome Back/I’m Back* Official Video

UK Rapper “K Koke” (@KokeUSG) has wasted no time getting things back in motion, since putting behind his previous legal issues that he encountered this year(2011) with resuming his episodes of “K Koke Tv” with the help of Kritikal Tv(@KritikalsWorld) which shows the basic day to day of “K Koke” and his team.

“K Koke” recently received a recording deal from “Sony RCA” and “Roc Nation”( “Jay-Zs” label, home of “J Cole”, “Rita Ora” and other acts) and has gone from strength to strength with his music and has generated a buzz and following off his two CD’s “Pure Koke” and “Pure Koke Volume 2” and his legendary “Fire In The Booth” with “Charlie Sloth”.

“K Koke” stands out for The Established Living, simply because he is a raw talent, who gives a street, gritty essence in his lyrics, and above all of those points you can just feel the passion in his lyrics which shows the artist is serious about their music and developing their skill.

The vibe that “Welcome Back/I’m Back” shows is what the UK Rap game has been missing, and it seems “K Koke” is back to clean up and dominate on a bigger scale, The Established Living looks forward to see what develops next for “K Koke” and what direction him and his team go.
