PremRock ft. billy woods: Bardo

A surprise drop from PremRock, with the arrival of this latest single. Bardo follows on from a triumphant 2021 for the Wrecking Crew artist and sees him reuniting with billy woods, as the duo get to work over some typically dope production from Evidence. What’s not to like? The single is out now via Backwoodz Studioz.

King Kashmere: North Star (Evil Mix)

Next up we have a return joint from King Kashmere, which sees him teaming up with Alecs DeLarge again. This time the duo have delivered a new perspective on their previously released track, North Star, thanks to DeLarge’s Evil Mix. Once again, it’s Honey JD on video duties and the track is available to stream now from all the usual spots.

Armand Hammer & The Alchemist: Robert Moses / God’s Feet

Two for one from Armand Hammer and The Alchemist, as they round off another successful year with a double drop of videos. Robert Moses and God’s Feet are both taken from the trio’s universally acclaimed album, Haram, and the films were directed by regular collaborator, Joseph. Keep an eye out for a split second of Bristol footage in the Robert Moses video. Haram is out now via Backwoodz Studioz.

Moose Funk Squad: 2One + EP Stream

Good to see the return of Moose Funk Squad, as they reunite for an unsurprisingly solid EP. National Geographic Shit continues in the same vaguely irreverent vein that has been a theme through all their projects, while still upheld by thoroughly engrossing raps and equally enticing production, the latter of which comes from Luca Brazi. An enjoyable listen overall and a much welcome breath of less serious air. You can check the video for 2One above, while the rest of the EP is available to explore below. Downloads are available via Broke Records.

Fielded: Interview

Back in October I found myself in London at the same time as Fielded, who was in town to perform with installation artist, Naama Tsabar. I took the opportunity to sit down with her for an interview, where we spoke about her new EP, Young Medusa, as well as displaying vulnerability through art, keeping things varied and learning to enjoy the act of collaborating.

Defcee & Messiah Musik: Trapdoor (Stream)

Already way up in the upper echelons of 2021, Backwoodz Studioz continue their gold run with a couple more solid releases before the year is done. Defcee made his debut on the label, alongside the mighty Messiah Musik, as they joined forces to bring the world, Trapdoor. Showcasing both Defcee’s unfuckwitable writing levels and Messiah Musik’s equally indefatigable production output, Trapdoor burst into our lives and secured an AOTY placement in the process. The album is laden with top notch guests too, including features from PremRock, Alaska, Armand Hammer, Curly Castro and Henry Canyons. The album is out now and is very worthy of your concentration. You can test the waters below if you need any further convincing.
