Welsh Hip Hop, reprise

Back in December of last year, I put up an entry on Welsh hip hop. Would you believe it still attracts the occasional comment from the Welsh hip hop afficionados and partisans? This is why comments should not be closed. It may have something to do with the fact that when you run the Google search, my little blog is the second search result on the list.

The BBC put up a nice review of the album released last Summer: Miwsig I'ch Traed A Miwsig I'ch Meddwl. I cannot pronounce it, honestly, but I like the way all of the letters look together. This album was put out by Boobytrap Records, which also puts out Welch Hip Hop albums by Kentucky AFC. If you want to hear a snippet from MC Mabon's hit single, go iawn wir yr click on the song title and hopefully that will work. If not, click here, because I don't want you to miss your chance at hearing the "chanting song of acid-guzzling choir goers".

Here is a great set of resources for Welsh Hip Hop from BBC Wales: Adam Walton's Magical Mystery Tour. Here is an informative looking website from another record company: Angst.

Finally, the BBC Wales does have a nice looking set of links to Welsh music sites generally, with some hip hop mixed in.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to check out The Martini Henry Rifles new video. Not hip hop, mind you, but quite interesting and in English.

Because of the damned spammers (comments and trackbacks) I have had to disallow Google searches AND close comments on old posts.


Not that I post anything of real import anyway, but. . .

Margi, that is a shame. It can be great fun to get a new comment on an old post.

And I think your blog is of sufficient import to read it regularly. So, there.

i think that yr post is a good idea as a lot of people in the hiphop comunity can use it to communicate,but wot i think we really need is a proper site dedicated to welsh hiphop with biogs on all welsh artists,downloads,news,latest releses etc,i think this would definately be a positive move forward for the whole scene in general.(this needs to be done i would do it myself if i knew how to.)
