Artists include Paigey Cakey, Mike GLC, and DVS. Paigey Cakey “Same Way” Now settled into the seasoned nest of Alwayz Recordings (Chip), Paigey Cakey has the support to really fly. The pint-sized MC will release her new EP, The Next Paige, in November, with the first track being something all the haters can swivel on, “Same Way.” Mike GLC “Flying High” Mike GLC has had possibly the worst year of his life, after being unfairly set up by The Sun, but the rapper hasn’t let any of the drama distract him from his music grind (slackers, take note). The title of his new track, “Flying High,” would probably suggest that he ain’t worried about nothin’, but his lyrical content digs deeper than youd expect. DVS Feat. Syikes “Versace” (Freestyle) Just when you thought you heard all of the “Versace” freestyles possible, DVS comes through with a hood version of the Migos club banger. As expected, the Brixton-bred rapper spits flossy rhymes whilst rocking flossy Versace threads in the video (standard!) The track also features fellow Brixtonite, Syikes. DVS’ London Boy, American Dreaming mixtape drops next month. Blacks & Footsie Feat. Little Dee “Lunatic” Despite the poor visuals, Blacks, Footsie, and Little Dees new grime number, “Lunatic,” is a good’un. Bars for days!
Markets open in 1 hr 24 mins UK ‘Unlikely’ to Replicate US Shale Success Press Release: World Review 19 hours ago Despite having substantial shale gas resources, analysts believe that the UK is unlikely to replicate the US ‘shale success story’, writes World Review author and energy economist Dr Carole Nakhle. ‘A limited onshore domestic service industry, geological complexities, no private ownership of mineral rights, high population densities, strict environmental regulations, and local opposition, among other obstacles, all add to the cost and time of exploiting shale gas,’ she says in World Review , a free-access website focusing on global geopolitical affairs. UK George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer has offered a package of measures to encourage exploration of the UK’s shale gas resources, including ‘a generous new tax regime for shale’. ‘To date, only a small number of small companies have expressed interest in shale gas,’ she says. ‘Although the recent acquisition by energy giant Centrica of a 25 per cent stake in Cuadrilla’s exploration license inLancashireis seen as an encouraging sign.’ However, local communities continue to oppose shale gas exploration. ‘There are fears that fracking will cause serious environmental damage, from earthquakes to ground and water contamination. It would be difficult for companies to proceed with their plans without the blessing of local communities,’ she adds. What has been done so far is just the start of a long process before the UK can claim, with certainty, that shale gas resources will dramatically alter its energy realities, says Dr Nakhle.
