Boastful, brash and in the odd simile, hilarious, Jack Fox’s new track Times And Places gives Geordie rap a melodic makeover. Chockful of one-lines that will leave you rewinding to your favourite (“hairdo looking like Baggio in ‘94” might be mine), it’s the groove laid down by DJ ADS that really adds to the repeatability of the track. A cool jazz-inspired sound with vibraphone, organ, tremolo guitar, horns and a backbeat to get the head nodding, all make for a really interesting hip-hop sound.

B-side Cogs In The Wheel continues that same vibe, with Jister’s verse adding a nice self-deprecating foil to Fox’s bravado that’ll have you “staying close to the ground like Steve Irwin” (another favourite line).
