We celebrate our 14th birthday with a free to download compilation of tracks by North East artists. Download your copy via our Bandcamp site. We hear more from John Dole about his track.

John Dole’s new track has all the spacey hip-hop vibes of Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly and the lyrical rhythm to keep up. A vibey, layered electronic rap track, Dole’s exceptional flow creates a commentary about “the modern mindstate”, our “lack of patience” and “how we’re all slowly becoming apathetic due to the barrage of media” we experience.

Dole says it’s taken a long time for the track to properly come together as a finished piece, but the end product is well worth the wait.
