  4. Serious
  5. Fit 1
  7. Inga
  8. L'oreal

Inga Copeland was one half of the defunct duo Hype Williams, and self released her first solo album Because I'm Worth It, back in May. What I like about this album is the way that Copeland manages to keep it low key and experimental, but still accessible. The track Advice To Young Girls is produced by Actress (Darren Cunningham) which is self evident upon listening, and there is also a nod to the Wu Tang Clan in the track Diligence. The album has a veil of dusk that runs through every track, with crisp breaks, the throb of bass, whilst the atmosphere is enhanced by Copeland's monotone lyrical stylings. I find Because I'm Worth It compelling stuff.
