Product Description

Product Description

Following five years of endless guest spots at raves and pirate radio stations, Kano has established himself as the one MC to dominate not only the East London underground, but also to move his fanbase’s catchment area a few tube stops west, picking up fans from across the media from fanzines to broadsheets and a full sweep of 2005 ones-to-watch plaudits.

Amazon.co.uk

Although 19-year old Kane Robinson is the latest product of the vibrant UK Garage scene commonly dubbed "grime", his deceptively named debut full-length album, Home Sweet Home travels far beyond the East London boroughs most grime MCs make their ends. Boasting collaborative work with The Streets’ Mike Skinner, M.I.A associate Diplo, grime faces Terrah Danjah and D Double E, and even producer du jour Paul Epworth – the Bloc Party knob-twiddler, who contributes Black Sabbath-sampling rock banger "I Don’t Know Why" – this is an album that reflects Kano’s charismatic, multi-faced style: or, as he neatly puts it on frothing junglist number "Reload It", "I make love music/And I make thug music".

Skipping styles like hopscotch, we see Kano tackle assured, chugging rap-rock ("Typical Me"); Latin-tinged, Hennesy-sipping party vibes ("Remember Me"); reflective garden-gate philosophy ("How We Livin’"); and thuggish, slice-of-London-life drama (‘Ghetto Kid’) with equal charm and proficiency. His debut single, "Boys Love Girls" – a bouncy, comical encapsulation of playground sexual politics, included here as a bonus track – still sounds like perhaps his finest moment. But on Home Sweet Home, Kano has grown in many directions, and somewhat miraculously, every one suits him --Louis Pattison

If you don't see my location on here yet, believe it or not, I'm from the US, out of all places, reviewing this album. Kano is literally, a U.K. continuation of Jay Z, except he is much better. "I love money, don't get me wrong, but its more what the songs like ." - Has jay Z ever said that? Don't think so. But everything else on this album has Jay Z's trademark all over it, from the way Kano does the chorouses, to the way he suddendly slows down in his verses, to the way where he acts so cocky to the point where he really just is the s**t.
Whereas Jay Z has been in mainstream for a while, this guy is just coming up from the UK underground scene, supposedly, yet he spits fire better than many mainstream rappers in the US who have been around a long time - "I got punchlines / and I got kick lines / And I aint commericial but I got hit lines." While I'm not saying that the UK rap scene is better overall (sorry people), this and the new Mitchell Brothers album really hit me hard due to how suprisingly unique these albums were, and why some other people in the U.S. just don't "get it."
Production on the other hand, is a pure gem. I've never heard original MIDI production with no sampling this good in my life. Whoever produces for Kano (I know Kano does some himself and the Mitchell brothers do some) really, really knows what they are doing with MIDI and has an excellent background in music theory, especially for "grime" hip hop beats.
Highlights:
Nite Nite (mitchell brothers beat for this is crazy)
The title track
P's & Q's
Signs in life (this track hits hard as hell and Kano rips it for 6 minutes)

I have waited in anticipation for this album ever since December last year when I first heard the infectious 'Ps & Qs' on Chanel U. Six and a half months later, Kano finally drops his debut album 'Home Sweet Home'. This is without a doubt the most original LP to come out of the UK and will beat any modern US hip hop album hands down. Kanos lyrics are sublime, each line he drops contains typicaly British matters such as football, cups of tea, clubbing and Eastenders! Kano touches on his days as a Chelsea apprentice in the fantastic 9 to 5 (which is far to short at just 2 minutes 10 seconds). Kano blames his laziness and the fact that his always in bed for his turn to the mic ("Then I gave up, now i'm in the music biz and i wont ever let my laziness ruin this"). The beats are very original, mixing rock and hip hop together to produce a very original sounding grime. This album is better then i anticipated, its wonderfully crafted and unlike other albums such as 'The Massacre' or 'Showtime', Kano has obviously tried to introduce something new to Hip Hop and has devouted himself entirely to the project. A hot album that will be very difficult to top by any artist this year!!

I originally ignored this album due to my slight prejudice against mainstream acts such as the streets. Since being subjected to it in my mate's car i have come around to recognise Kano one of the better UK rappers out there. His flow and the number of times he switches it up is sick. The beats are good too. He is easily up there with the UK's finest Jehst, Life, Cy Philly, Klashnekoff, Kyza, Chester P, Scor-zay-zee, Cappo et al. And thats one of the good things about him, he appeals to fans of seriously good rappers such as those i have just mentioned, and also talentless wastemen like lethal bizzle (a complete joke!). Hopefully he can convert a few grime fans to real hip hop. Before anyone tries to defend lethal drivel plz check out some tracks from the above MC's and hear some actual talent on the mic.

Recently bought a 20GB iPod from amazon and I have about 100 albums on there already yet this is the only one I am listening to right now, I absoloutley love this album. I first heard P's&Q's ages and ages ago on channel U and really liked it but didn't hear much from Kano for a while, then he kind of blew up, especially now Nite Nite's being played on the stations and music channels. My favourite song has to be Reload It for the simple fact that if that was played in the clubs or at the raves everyone would go crazy, especially me. Though I do have my favourtie tracks there isn't a single song on this album that I don't like which is kind of a rarity, especially when the album has 16 tracks. Basically I would reccomend this album to everyone I know because I love it so much.

Right, Kano, what can I say: Quite possibly the best lyricist in UK Hip Hop, in fact judging by the album...possibly one of the best lyricists in Hip Hop. People are going to disagree with me but if he carries on like this lyrically he's getting close to the quality Nas was spitting in the 90's!
The album is raw and has British Hip Hop stamped across it. It's not at all glossy and the best part is, the whole album is real, its not roleplaying the pretend life of a gangster, its simply telling the life of a boy from London.
I have to disagree with the production side...I'm in music production myself and quite a few other producers I have spoken to have agreed that he production quality isn't fantastic on this album...though I do agree, they've used MIDI pretty well but I felt that whilst Kano put 110% into his vocals the overall production lacked on some songs...in my opinion though thats what makes the album so great, it doesn't need perfection to make it shine!
Isn't it great to be back in that situation again for Hip Hop where its not on the verge of becoming simply money, its got a reason now and the UK have got a reason to keep making British Hip Hop rise. Whilst Kanye is the saviour of US, Kano is carrying th UK!
