#TBT The Notorious B.I.G. - Machine Gun Funk (@sxcrxt_lion Remix)

We've got something super soulful for you this week, that being Secret Lion's remix of Biggie's Machine Gun Funk. 

The UK producer decided to switch the mellow sounding production of the original for a more uplifting kind of sound which worked out extremely well. It gives the Ready To Die favorite a fresh twist that's hard not to enjoy. 

Head on over to Secret Lion's Soundcloud for more great tracks.

#TBT @ProducerAX - Trips

Welcome back to our #TBT series, this week's track is AX's 'Trips'. 

Released as a loosie, the song has both trippy and ambient elements to it while also containing simple-yet-smooth hip-hop drums. The song is about ... Well, we'll let you decide for yourself. 

AX has several projects in the works which will be released this year, be on the lookout! 

#TBT @JohnBerryPhotog - Morning Sun

Another Thursday, another edition of our #TBT series. This week's track is John Berry's 'Morning Sun'.

The track is taken is from 'Moon Songs', a project which featured a number of collaborations between John and his talented friends. It's difficult to think of a purely instrumental track of his that isn't great, but you simply get a different vibe when he has vocalists perform over his instrumentation.

The vocalists sound great too,  credit goes to Bud Clowers, Alexandra Maxwell and Marcella Krupski. Gotta love a good collab! 

Make sure to check out the rest of Moon Songs, and while you're at it, make sure to check out the latest tracks on John's Soundcloud

#TBT @NewDarkAge - The Witches Tale

#TBT returns and this week's track is Newdarkage's 'The Witches Tale'. 

This one is full of ambiance, eeriness and a ton of different vibes, all supported by a foundation of great 808 work and organic percussion. It's hard to say what this song is truly about, maybe it's something that can't be explained in a blog post but only through the music itself? Make sure to click that play button and see for yourself. 

The Witches Tale is taken from Have Blue, make sure to listen to the full project here. Need more? You could also check out NDA's newest project, 'Play This Only at Daylight'. 

#TBT @SeyMC - Hot Verse (Prod. Skyon)

#TBT is back once again and this week's track is Sey's 'Hot Verse', produced by Skyon. 

When an MC hears a smooth and soulful beat, they have no choice but to make it their own and Sey did exactly that with the BYAK2 cut. 

Sey and Skyon linked back up again recently for their collaborative album, 'Public Enemy No.1', make sure to check that out! 

#TBT @bboyce91 - 96' Mix

For this week's #TBT post we're going all the way back to 1996 with DJ Trakboy's '96' Mix'. 

The commemorative mix includes the kind of scratches and great track selections that we've come to expect from Trakboy. It features the likes of Nas, The Fugees, 2Pac, Biggie, Jigga and many more. For a lot of Hip-Hop fans 96' was the best year yet and with this mix, it's quite hard to argue against that.
