Expect to be bobbing your head aplenty and enjoy some amazing wordplay with a smile on your face.

For the last episode of the year, we’re offering you a wide selection of cult classics and future hits from le pays de la France. From Akhenaton to Odezenne, lots of diversity, and plenty wonderful beats and mcs await...

Le Bon Beat is back on Soas Radio! Back with a particularly moody vibe it has to be said. Many of the tracks we are featuring this week have this certain je-ne-sais-quoi. A mix of melancholy and unstoppable energy that had somewhat been less present in hiphop over the past few years. All the artists we are showcasing tonight are true poets as well as incredible technicians of the rhyme. The topics they touch are profound, personal and intimate. The productions supporting them are, as usual on Le Bon Beat, sure to get you hooked up. Deep bass, irresistible jazz swings and mysterious samples await. We hope you'll enjoy the show!

LE BON BEAT - Episode 8

This episode has been conceived as a pure joy ride for all hiphop music lovers.

As this might be our last episode for a little while, we had to dig deep and deliver the best, trying to showcase the multiple facets of the french hiphop scene, as it has been custom with Le Bon Beat.

So we are starting this show with instropective and socially conscious lyrics and beats, before drifting towards the core of the hiphop movement and some irresistible tunes, before finishing on a very chilled out note and faring you goodbye...for now.

Thanks to everyone who supported the show and came down to our Le Bon Beat Live Music and Painting nights. We will be around soon, keep sharing our Facebook Page and blog, www.lebonbeat.wordpress.com, follow us on Twitter, and download the podcasts for free on iTunes for all our previous episodes.

Merci a tous!
