King Kashmere & Letherette – ”G-Cell”
King Kashmere and I must have just missed each other as he in 2006 released ”In The Hour Of Chaos” (Receptor Records) and I was moving back to Stockholm. I never managed to catch where The Iguana Man was hiding but thanks to the releases that’ve dropped over the last few years on High Focus have I been listening to King Kashmere and I’ve also been digging on early material. ”G-Cell” is new music released together with the production duo Letherette. Enjoy!

Stu Bangas feat. Juga-Naut – ”Same Spot”
Usually hard banger Stu Bangas teams up with UK rhymer Juga-Naut for a smooth piano-laced track off the Stu Bangas ”Deathwish” album.
King Kashmere – ”Soul Calibur (’95 Mix)”
King Kashmere continues to release singles and in this case is a remix version. This is the ’95 ”Soul Calibur” mix by Alecs DeLarge in collabo with King Kashmere on vocals. Straight fire in my opinion!
Pitch 92 feat. Kofi Stone – ”Under The Sun”
One of my personal favourite tracks off the ”Intervals” album by Pitch 92 is ”Under the Sun”. Here’s the animated video to it.
King Kashmere – ”Soul Calibur”
Through the UK label High Focus Records is this tune by King Kashmere ”Soul Kalibur”. After his epic work as the vocalist of the infamous Strange U, King Kashmere is back with his first solo single in over ten years and more work together with producer Alecs DeLarge is on the horizon. Keep it locked!
