» Zebra Traffic – UK hip hop label: Profile & mp3 downloads

Zebra Traffic

Set up in early 2002 by Robert Luis, surgeon Paul Jonas and Tom Simpson, cheap Brighton based Zebra Traffic records (half-sister of Tru Thoughts Records) has been steadily and effectively releasing quality hip-hop music ever since. Having originally been passed a demo album by Mark B (from 2/3rds of Phi-Life Cypher; Life & DJ Nappa) and a Diversion Tactics single ready to go – the label launched at a time when UK hip-hop was enjoying a resurgence.

This, combined with a decent worldwide distribution network, in-house press & promotion and publishing & licensing departments, the label has been quietly getting on with it and over the last 5 years has seen the likes of Cappo, P Brothers, Phi-Life Cypher, Taskforce, Dirty Diggers, Headcase Ladz, Diversion Tactics, HUG & J-Zone, Up Hygh, Rup, Life, Digitek and more grace it’s orange sleeves.

Approaching it’s sixth year and about to drop its 37th release, the future looks bright for the label. With an emphasis firmly on artist albums, the label is about to drop Life’s third solo long player; ‘Outside Looking In’, alongside new albums from Rup and Dirty Diggers, plus some other interesting projects, there is plenty on the horizon.

Our pick of the best podcasts:

  • Napoleon Dynamite — RADIX JOURNAL (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    Andy, Colin, Richard, and special guest John Morgan go in for a bit of the old ultra-violence in a discussion of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971). Can one truly be moral without the capacity for rape and mayhem? Is "Alex Delarge" simply a sociopath and thug . . . or an avatar of the übermensch in an egalitarian age? http://www.radixjournal.com/vanguard-radio/podcast/2013/8/14/napoleon-dynamite »
  • The Beat Magistral (Con Anima) (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    A massive deep dark flowing mix by Dj Heisa. A beautiful trip through abstract hip hop, jazz, classical and folk music. This man makes classical, jazz and folk music sounds like hip hop. Tracklist at http://bit.ly/1NmgzU »
  • The Glitch Mob - Crush Mode (40 min mix) (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    A huge heavy mix of massive bass and chopped up beats from LA's premier glitched-out electro hip hop crew . You just imagine seeing and hearing this played LOUD in a club - it would blow your mind. More of their music at http://theglitchmob.com/ »
