Luton producer and recording artist ‘5n6’ has just freshly released his debut solo music video for the track ‘Walk With Me’. The track features fellow Luton rapper and second cousin of 5n6: ‘Lil Pobidansta’ on the second verse. The track is a quality self produced track and is heavy with 808’s and classic violins setting the mood. The music video was also directed and edited by 5n6 with assistance from a local student for most of the camera operation.
The video takes you through the town centre of this up and coming artists hometown and finishes with footage/audio mixed in from a studio session where the artist is freestyling in the booth.
5n6 has been a core part of three recent UK Runnings mixtapes. He is a part of the crew ‘XO The Rebellion’ (A studio collaboration with Himself, Tommy DMO and Closure) who have a mixtape out now on datpiff called ‘Kush & Cognac’. 5n6 also released two boom bap style hip hop mixtapes as half of the rap duo ‘Collective Underground’.
Currently 5n6 is in his studio writing and recording the final tracks for his debut self produced album: ‘Parameters’ which is set for release at the end of summer 2013.
If you dont know about digbeth and there dining club and are in the midlands, a street food lover and like a good time, what have you been doing, the concept is brilliant and simple, they are bridging the gap between after work dining and pre club eating/drinking, the set up is a nice courtyard where the traders set up and a nice bar with relaxed lighting, cool decor and a dj spinning chilled beats and breaks, all the traders up here are really friendly like minded people who all share one thing in common, a passion for good, fresh great tasting food.
Make sure you get down to one of these, support the guys and the main thing…treat your self to affordable gourmet street food.
Ive always been fascinated with hiphop and the use of samples, listening to producers like premo, pete rock, j dill and 9th wonder i always hear little sample they use from soul and reggae and think maaaan i gota find out what that is from.
Ive just put a murs badman on and had to find out what 9th wonder used for the sample.
Then discovered this is where it came from, such a dope track, i really wanna do a set of hiphop samples!!
I’ve been passionate about street food in England for years now so it’s so nice to see it coming to Birmingham and so many people working together to make it happen and support each other.
Digbeth Dining Club has been running for a few months now but I only made it up last night to see what all the hype was about. We got there to the court yard which each week has three different street food traders sell their delicious food to like minded foodies and people who like and appreciate good food. There are benches to sit with heaters and cover, then there is a bar which used to be an old warehouse, the vibe is very relaxed with the dj spinning chilled instramental beats and laid back hiphop tracks. There are a selection of beers on draft, spirits, wine and cocktails as you sit on a sofa eating some of the best street food around. The lighting is low and its got a certain ambiance that excites me.
Last night the traders were:
The Mexican Bean guys who sell mexican flavours.
I had the nachos supreme which was their slow cooked shredded beef that was out of this world, the beef was so tender and flavoursome, the cheese was delicious and the hot salsa really complemented everything alongside the guacamole and chipotle sauce, if you think you have had ‘nachos’ before, trust me you haven’t until you have had The mexican bean nachos. Cant wait to work my way through the rest of the menu over the next few months.
For all details of these lovely people make sure you follow them on twitter and add them up on facebook.
Jabberwocky serving up gourmet toasties.
I’d read their menu earlier in the day and got quite excited at the thought of their smoked pigeon breast, Red Leicester, spring onions and redcurrant sauce toastie, I’ve wanted to try pigeon for ages so this was first on my list, again the guys are a lovely couple really friendly and talkative with real passion for food. The pigeon was smoked by themselves and was perfect, a mild smoke flavour which was just right, didn’t dominate but was there, the strong red leicester cheese was delish when melted then the slight edge of the spring onion really set it off, such a great original idea for a toastie i cant wait to try what they do next!
Again make sure you follow and support what these guys are doing here.
Original Patty Men serving THE best burgers in town for sure.
As I had eaten at all the other stalls I had to try these amazing looking burgers from these guys. Again i had seen the menu earlier in the day and been a big burger fan i had to try their original patty with cheese. The burger was mouth wateringly delicious, the bun sweet and soft with the beautiful beef patty that is a real treat alongside the melted cheese, onions, mustard and sauce, this is the best I’ve had, i find a lot of burgers are greasy and the patty is rubbish quality this ticks all the box’s for me and again cant wait to try their other creations. The krispy kreme as a bun is calling out to be tried
Make sure you get down to Digbeth and try all of this amazing food for yourselves trust me you won’t be disappointed, hopefully some time in the future when I have my van up and running you will see me at one of these events, until then, I’ll support these guys and make myself fat in the process hehe.
So if you dont know about the street food revolution what have you been eating?
Street food has been making alot of noise ( and beautiful smells ) in london now for a few years, i first came across it at nottinghill carnival and down brick lane and various places, its basically specialist stalls/vans/tents that set up and serve fresh seasonal food and ingredients to like minded modern foodies. Expect things like slow cooked bbq ribs, smoked pulled pork, burritos, gourmet toasties, wood smoked piiza and loads more. Im actually really excited about this as im in the process of setting up my own street food van.
If you are in the area make sure you pass through and see what everyone is talking about ( and eating )
