Cognitive Surplus


Smurfie the Syco

Member of Dizzie Rascals record label ‘Dirtee Stank Records, very own label ‘Chocolate label’, born and raised in North London, only 19 years old…


With a very interesting history behind him, and even more coming to him, Smurf seems like someone we should keep our eyes open for….

In 2006, Smurfie Syco managed to secure a deal with ‘Chrysalis’ record label based in London. This helped him discover who he was as an artist, as well as tour around the country, gaining confidence and a huge fan base!!!!

Whilst on his travels he met thee ‘Dizzie Rascal’ and thats when the magic started to happen..

When I saw Smurfies twitter update (@smurfiesyco) telling the world he would be coming to Newcastle, I was ‘buzzing’…so to speak LOL. My mind went straight to ‘a Blog post’…and you guys :)…

Popping bottles in TupTup palaces VIP area, for Newcastle United player ‘Nile Ranger’s’ birthday, I eventually got to meet this driven handsome chap. When chatting, he started telling me how he got involved with Dizzie. He met the main man on tour…they got talking business and he exchanged contact info with his tour manager.

When Smurfs deal with Chrysalis fell through, he got in touch with the team on myspace, telling them how he wanted to get involved. As it was clear this youngun had talent, Dizzie was keen to get him on board and as soon as ‘Dirtee Stank Records’ beame an established independant record label, he was brought in…

Since then, Smurfie has been focusing fully on his music, spending time day in day out in his home studio..submitting tracks to the label and making sure every one knows his name. With alot of experience behind him, and huge amounts of drive and determination, he really is an inspiring character…

(Take notes…I am hehe)

A support act for huge artists such as Dizzie Rascal, Lily Allen, Jason Status, Example etc and getting involved in Radio 1 live lounge and 1xtra its clear hes focused, and has what it takes.

Mr Syco is definatly someone we should anticipate…

You can find him in the studio, find him on stage, hear him on your radio and catch him in videos.

That’s great to see  ❤

His 1st single comes out after Dizzies new single Dirty disco…So it seems well ALL be seeing him around July time.

Im exited…So should you be 🙂

Find him…

Showing Local Love <3

‘SILVAR’ A.K.A Stephen Elms, brings something new and fresh to the small town of Newcastle. His ludacris lyrics that cross every line keep you so entertained your waiting for more.

His confidence could be over looked as cokiness but Silvar still holds the belt for ‘TOP BOY ROUND HERE’

Encouraging other youths to be as dedicated and passionate as he is, Silvar has created a power group with some other of the North Easts talents…<3
You May Know Them As…
Not only are they taking our city by storm, but they have also joined the other HipHop artists we know worldwide promoting a clothing line..

Having supported Interntionally huge acts such as Neyo, Tinchy Stryder, JLS, Chipmunk and many more, he tells us what it is that he loves about music…

'The emotion you can portray and the element of suprise the first time you hear a tune'…<< Thats what he loves 🙂

His advice to us all, is to make sure we know the ins and outs of what we want to get into.
The music industry is a RAW one and those in power WILL take advantage if you don't know what your doing.
His last piece of advice…'If something seems to good to be true, it usually is.'

Meet & Greet with Tempa T

🙂 Good Morningggg World 🙂

Iv been soooo excited to write this blog. Finally found my focus and last night was the beginning!!


An electric 24year old reppin London Town (EAST), took Newcastle’s ‘BAR BEYOND’ by Storm last night. Never felt a floor move like it!!

Atmosphere was OFF THE ROOF…<3

Even the ‘matures’ (haha) in the crowd were feeling it!!! I was very impressed!!

After watching his performance and the reception he got from the crowd, i was EAGER to sit down and chat.

I caught up with Temps in the V.I.P booth and the convo began!!!

Talking to him was quite inspirational for me…His belief was that, Unless you have it in you…you’ll never do it!  He told me that he’d been pursing music since he was young and how its who he is. As he talked about his passion for it, you could really see how much Music means to him!! 

TEMPS ADVICE : ‘Do what you love, and when you do it, do it 100%’

Am i sure…Continuation..!!

So guys….!!!! I am now Unemployed! Am I now just another statistic in the system? Making a mockery out of our government??

Nehhhh, I’m taking a breather :)….(As if being on maternity leave for a year wasn’t a big enough breather)

After sleeping on it, I feel I made the right decision!! The ‘Hero Hassans’ do a lot for me, and being a university student, working 25 hours a week AND spending the time in between in the studio or writing…I feel I may be asking a little too much of em!! Ahhhh well….Mama Jam is back :):)
