For those who are not familiar with the one they call Ghostpoet get familiar.
His alternative take on Hip Hop is a breath of fresh air to the UK scene. With his unique flow and experimental beats it’s not hard to see why we highly recommend him.

Ghostpoet is also featuring on the TOTR compilation album which is being released next week.

The Carhartt have hooked up with Vestax to bring us the Handy Trax USB Turntable. It has a tough plastic casing and the capability to operate at angles of up to 90 degrees. You can hook it up to your hi-fi system at home or you can connect your MP3 player to it with a mini line-in jack. You can even transform your vinyl into binary code via a newly integrated USB port.
The turntable will be released mid-December.
