Heavy Links - Step Up To Get Your Rep Up - 2017


LP - 2017 - MUJ 





"Lincolnshire's finest crew return with their first full length outing. From the intro through to the last track you're treated to that consistency of the HL sound that we've come to know and love. Straight up sample based Hip Hop from El Tel on the MPC, DJ Donnie Propa with those dope cuts on the hooks, and the individual and impressive flows from both Habitat and El Tel on the vocals. 
For me the stand out tracks are 'Still the same crew' which I believe is the next video? It has that classic sound down to a T. 'Represent to the fullest' which is the lead track from the album is a banger too, and 'Blue Thunder' with its smooth Jazzy vibes, kick, snare and Boombap warfare! "  Chrome
