Another sure shot from Wish Master as the Bristol MC continues his climb to the top with another solid track from his Boom Bap to the Future album. Grinding is produced by Baileys Brown and features fellow rap merchant, Scarboy. The video was made by Chris Lucas. Boom Bap to the Future is available to download now.

Very happy to see that we are soon to be treated to new material from Bradford beat wizard, HashFinger, as he announces the imminent arrival of his Dandelions LP. It’s due for release next month via Headcount Records and apparently following in similar boom bap footsteps as his debut on the label, Lessons, back in 2014. You can find a taster from the project below, in the form of the opening track – Skins/Leaves – and pre-orders for the album can be found over on Bandcamp. You can also find my 2017 with HashFinger here. Read the rest of this entry »

Cracking animated video from Juga-Naut and Giallo Point, as they continue to drop gems from their new album. Concept Song features some breathtaking visuals from Theorist, upping the levels on the current theme of animated videos surfacing on the UK scene. Back to the Grill Again is out now, including a vinyl edition on Tuff Kong Records.

I love it when my favourite artists emerge from the shadows with unexpected new material; yesterday it was Blu, today it’s ELUCID and his excellently titled project, Every Egg I Cracked Today Was Double Yolked. According to the Armand Hammer MC, this is a collection of songs made on the fly while he has been travelling and touring throughout the year. And it’s still better than a lot of the material surfacing at the moment, which is further proof of ELUCID’s worth. There are downloads available via Bandcamp, or you can listen to the full thing below. Read the rest of this entry »

My hometown is a renowned birthplace for refreshing musical ventures, which is exactly what Jasi has tapped into with his latest release. You may remember me premiering one of his videos earlier in the year and now he returns with a brand new EP. The Cruel World EP is six tracks deep, with each chapter giving a fine insight into Jasi’s adventurous approach to his craft, as he blends rap with other vocal elements. It’s definitely more of a commercially viable record, which might put some listeners off, but beyond those hallmarks this is still a project brimming with sense and soul. You can hear the EP in full below and downloads can be found over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

One of the more prolific artists of his generation returns with something of a surprise new project, as Blu and Washington-based production guru, Damu The Fudgemunk, unite to bring us, Ground & Water. The eight track release appeared on Friday, along with some additional notes from Damu where he explained that he felt that Blu was the storyteller who could bring the material to life. Raw Poetic makes a top notch appearance on Share The Love and there are equally strong contributions from Cashus King, Shawn Jackson, Yamin Semali and Local Blacc, who all drop in on Beast Mode. You can hear both those tracks, as well as the rest of the album, below and downloads are available via Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

Big release from the Mutant Academy gang, as Big Kahuna OG and Graymatter combine their ample talents to create the Strainman Chronicles. Competent rhymes and on-point production are the backbone of the project, with added strength coming from a number of high powered features, including fellow M.A. members Fly Anakin and Henny L.O, as well as 3wayslim, Xxhapo, Nickelus F, Monday Night and Al.Divino. Downloads for the album are available via the Scheme Team and you can hear it in full below. Read the rest of this entry »

Good to see Remulak back in the lab again, as he drops off his latest single. Solway Spaceman is the first we’ve heard from the Village Live producer since his Scrambled Eggs beat tape, which was released back in February. Hopefully this new joint is a sign that a new full length is not too far behind. You can stream Solway Spaceman below and other streaming/download options are also available.

Yet more new heat from DJ Muggs as he hooks up with Meyhem Lauren once again, following the success of their earlier projects. Wavy is the first sample from the upcoming album, Members Only, which is due for release on Soul Assassins on 6 September.

The latest video from Atmosphere was just given life, as they continue delivering the gems from their most recent album. On Earring, the Minneapolis duo draft in one of their oldest friends and collaborators, Musab FKA Beyond, with the video shot against a backdrop that feels like it could have been a Coen Brothers brainchild. Earring is lifted from Mi Vida Local, which is out now on Rhymesayers.
