Little Simz ‘Drop 6’ – Review

One of London’s best artists is back with a quick EP to keep us going during lockdown, and it’s another solid entry in an already strong discography. Little Simz is up there with the best of them when it comes to UK rap and grime. Her last album ‘GREY Area’...

Mac Miller ‘Circles’ – Review

Mac Miller ‘Circles’ – Review

The would-be 28-year-old rapper’s posthumous release is a tentative, delicate ensemble of rich storytelling, that’s as much about inner peace as it is turmoil. Mac Miller’s story is one I think about often. It ends in tragedy and an untimely passing, obviously, but it’s also a shining example of how resilient...

Lil Peep: Everybody’s Everything – Review

In conjunction with a docufilm by the same name, Lil Peep’s second posthumous album ‘Everybody’s Everything’ dropped today (Nov 15th) to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the rapper’s tragic death.

He spends his days drinking in his Lamborghini and avoids old friends that ask if their mums can get a ticket to his show. He fights with his girlfriend but buys her necklaces occasionally to appease her. He denounces all those...

The best VR Experience in London – Review

With the War of the Worlds VR Experience, the Thred team can attest that the VR market isn’t completely bust: it’s just better placed in the hands of experts. VR has gotten off to a patchy start. Having been around for over five years now, headsets are yet to find adoption among the masses. Whilst at its peak investors pumped USD $253 million into VR and...
