If you weren’t a fan of Mike Skinner/The Streets in the early 2000s, you might not find STOCKSNSKINS’ style of emceeing to be attractive, but I’ve been in love with all things UK Garage, underground and otherwise, and British Alt-Hip-Hop for a long time. It’s a funny storytelling record that goes deep about a date, hanging with the “rich and cool”, and the lines about the fellow who talks about vaping sent me into a laughing frenzy. After listening to the track, you should have a better understanding of who he is. Check out the song ‘Drinks ‘n’ Nibbles’ below, which 1/3 of an EP of the same name. It is out now via AnalogueTrash.


Also, since we’re here and some of you are probably like, “Who is Mike Skinner?”, I included a few of the videos for songs that I like.
