Akala “Carried Away”.


Ten years on Akala gives “Carried Away” a 2016 facelift.

Camden Towns Akala is without a doubt one of the most intelligent and mindful Mcs in hiphop, period.

It is hard to believe that “Carried Away” was released ten years ago! Even now it still sounds super chunky. Taking the original and making a few tweaks including a new hook and a new video. Its amazing that a track that was written and recorded all those years ago can still sound shrink wrap fresh.

As always Akala, the voice of the streets, strong, political, wise and mindful. Gives us a insight into how life can lead you down all the wrong paths. From the street, road life through to a young soldier going through the harsh realities of war and death. A hard hitting cinematic video that is as raw as a shot of vodka in the eye. Is the perfect visual story board to one of the hardest hiphop tracks you will hear this year.

Akala is one of a kind, a man who can touch your soul, as well as feeding your brain with phenomenal lyrical ability. Ten year on still as box fresh as when it was first released.

DJ Myme is a Turntablist, DJ Tutor, Party Rocker, Mix Cd DJ, Radio presenter, a life long music fan and all round positive guy. I was pretty much born and bred on music. Everything from Soul, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Pop you name it, it was on the stereo when I was growing up. I got into HipHop in 93/94 and the rest as they say is history! From a long haired skateboard kid growing up in Glastonbury, via Edinburgh for a few years. Now making moves in London for the last ten years and counting. My journey has been fuelled by music. I have been DJ'ing for the best part of ten years, starting of as a DMC battle DJ after smashing my way through the Scottish DMC finals, through to the London DMC finals. I turned my hand to mix cds, then radio, as well as tearing up dance floors from Edinburgh to London town then back again. Sharing the stage with everyone from Trevor Nelson to Cutmaster Swift along the way. I have passed my knowledge and skills on as a DJ tutor and I was the scratch DJ for Sky Sports, for their weekly football show "Premier League Preview". My blog here is to keep you up to date with the latest news from the urban world, reviews, write ups, features. As well as positive, mindful blogs, tell a friend to tell a friend. Beats, Rhymes and Life. Peace, Peace DJ Myme.
