Brand new visuals from Homeboy Sandman, as he delivers the latest video from his most recent album. Waiting on My Girl features production from Quelle Chris, who is at the helm for the whole record, and the video was made by Photo Rob. Don’t Feed The Monster is out now via Mello Music Group.
We need all the reasons to be happy at the moment; after a year of misery and uncertainty, being able to celebrate the good things in life is more important than ever. One of those celebratory moments is the arrival of Village Live’s fifth birthday and their decision to release a special label compilation to mark the occasion. Featuring a stack of brand new material, from some of the artists who have helped to build the label into the success story it is today, Village Live is Five stands as the perfect testament to Doug and Joey’s ongoing legacy and achievements. The label kicked things off back in 2015 with a collaborative single from Remulak and Cappo, so it makes sense that for the new compilation the duo have reunited to deliver more of the magic they stumbled upon many moons ago. You can watch the video for the track above and then head over to the Village Live shop to reserve your vinyl pre-order.
Coveralls is the latest track to be taken from Aesop Rock’s superb new album, which saw its release a couple of weeks ago. Spirit World Field Guide goes deep, while continuing the introspective themes which have permeated his last few releases.
Blissful bit of soulful, jazzy nourishment here, as Village Live release their latest Live & Direct single. This time it’s Ella Mae Sueref in the cut, as she teams up with Pawcut for Take Some Time. The track is also available to stream from the usual spots.
Another solid track from Magno Garcia, as he continues to shine as one of the most consistent artists rapping right now. Frida Basquiats is lifted from Garcia’s recent collaboration with Boston beatmaker, Chairman Chow, which saw its release last month. The full collab, Ba-Loo-S, is available now via Bandcamp.
The latest album from Verbz and Mr Slipz was finally given life last week, and to coincide with the release the duo decided to bless us with another video from the project as well. Decline of Self is just one of the more thought provoking tracks on the album, strengthened by a couple of tight features from Confucius MC and Coops. The video was made by Honey JD. Radio Waves is out now via High Focus.
Today saw the release of the latest single from Verb T and Illinformed, as they continue the rollout for their forthcoming album. City Limits features fellow In The Balance artist, Chillman, as well as another slick video from Parallel Media. The Land of the Foggy Skies is due for release on 11 December via High Focus.
New sounds from We Stay True, as Mr Brown joins forces with Cappo to form Oblique Strategies. They have a whole album en route, one that promises to further solidify Cappo’s reign as the UK’s supreme lyricist, with the first single given life last week. You can hear Bar Cardio above and pre-orders for the vinyl edition are available now. The release date is set for 23 November.
A new video for a previously released track, as Curly Castro and Jason Griff unlock the visuals for Dreadlocs Falling. The track was originally featured on the Wrecking Crew LP, Raheem’s Lament, which surfaced back in June. Downloads of the album can still be found over on Bandcamp, as well as a whole bunch of merch offers.
Big fan of this latest track from Jalopy Bungus. Following on from his Me N My Folks EP, which saw its release back in June, the Phoenix artist returns with the somewhat confusingly titled, J Cole & NoName, featuring Quelle Chris on the assist. You can hear it for yourself below, then head over to Bandcamp to grab a download.
