Insult To Injury on BBC 6Music 19/09/16


Tom Robinson selected (Dark Matter Pt.2) Insult To Injury for his Mixtape which was aired last night on 6 Music :

I’m pleased because I initially thought the song was too deep a hip hop song, musically & lyrically for airplay!   The song has no chorus,  no hook & no gimmicks… Just straight up head nodding hip hop beats, samples, free thinking lyrics as well as organic cuts from DJ Tones…. forging a sound that’s sorely missed these days!   Perhaps that’s why it got chosen.

It’s never about fame or making money, this music malarky, but now & then its good to be appreciated & played to a wider audience, wider than the underground hip hop scene can provide!   The songs I’ve made with producer Crespo are musically very diverse, gathering momentum from indie, psychedelia, soul, funk & gospel genres, creating platforms for me to write original concepts & lyrics too… Our back-cat is purposfully radio-friendly.  Gaining more exposure from 6Music highlights the chemistry we have & the accessibility of our songs.

The task at hand for myself is to continue on-line promotion on all social-media platforms, for Insult To Injury (Dark Matter Pt.2).

I’ve just set up a new Facebook page @

Sending links (including the Mixtape link) to music sites, mags & blogs for reviews…  Along with finishing two video’s for my 7″ #vinyl that’s due to arrive in a few weeks & begin the campaign for that… with live performances along the way….  As well as writing new songs!

Creative, exciting & for-filling times ahead for this independent artist.  🙂
