Check the latest video to be taken from Fliptrix’s most recent album, as the HF don unites with Mud Fam legend, Skinnyman, for Thriller. The track is produced by Joe Corfield and the video was made by Aboveground. INEXHALE is out now on High Focus.
Fresh monochrome visuals for one of my favourite tracks from Jam Baxter’s recent album, as High Focus release the new video for Bodyslam. The track sees Baxter uniting once again with frequent lab partner, Chemo, as well as AboveGround who brings his usual skill set to the proceedings. The Touching Scenes album is available now from the High Focus store.
Nah Eeto returns with her second new single in as many weeks, as she sets herself up for a dominant 2019. Kichaa (Swahili for ‘crazy’) is produced by Blah’s in-house production trio, Nobodies Home – aka Lee Scott, Jack Chard and Sniff. The video was made by AboveGround. Head to the YouTube page for a full translation of the lyrics and keep those ears peeled for loads more music coming from Nah Eeto shortly.
Dirty Dike returns a new single, this time teaming up with your favourite cult leader, Lee Scott. The two trade verses over a differently rugged beat from Pete Cannon and the whole thing is wrapped up nicely with a slick video from AboveGround – a video which details what would probably be classed as a crazy night out for your average person, but for these two I’m pretty sure it’s the standard. You can stream/download Woah here and stay tuned for the new album, Acrylic Snail, dropping soon on High Focus.
Lee Scott and Reklews are gearing themselves up to hit us with a new Hock Tu Down album and today saw the release of the first video. Paying homage to the classic end of 90’s freestyle from Eminem and Big Proof, Lee is joined by fellow Blah OG, Bill Shakes as the pair trade verses over a suitably rugged Reklews beat. The video was made by AboveGround. The album is due for release on 26 October.
Excellent new video from Pitch 92, as he celebrates the release of his debut EP on High Focus. Lost in Space is the title track and features some killer verses from Jehst and Confucius MC. The video was made by AboveGround. The Lost in Space EP is available now on all the usual platforms.
Good to see one of the high points from Ocean Wisdom’s recent sophomore album getting the video treatment. Ting Dun features Wu Tang legend Method Man, who brings some suitable double-time flows to the proceedings, over a tidy beat from Basquiat. The video was made by AboveGround. Wizville is out now on High Focus.
It was announced recently that High Focus head honcho, Fliptrix, is returning with a new album, following on from 2016’s Patterns of Escapism. It’s Like That is the first offering from the new project and sees Fliptrix team up with Birmingham-based producer, Joe Corfield, as well as Aboveground on video duties. The single is available to download/stream now and stay tuned for more info on the INEXHALE LP coming soon.
Golden-era advocate, Parallax, is set to return to the fore with a new album in the coming months and last week saw the arrival of a video from the project. The Saga Continues features joint production from Parallax and Wickstarr, with AboveGround behind the camera. You can buy and stream the track from all the usual spots.
There had been rumours circulating that COTD were coming back with new material and then they were confirmed with the announcement that we would get a new video today. And sure enough, I woke up to find Civilised plastered over multiple timelines.
It is definitely full gang, as Barebase, King Grubb, Salar, Bill Shakes, Lee Scott, Black Josh, Milkavelli, Stinkin Slumrok and Sniff all drop verses, with Sam Zircon and Bisk handling production. Suitably grimy aesthetic, further cementing Blah and their various off-shoots as the no fucks given older brother of some of the other UK rap labels. The excellent single take video was made by aboveGround.
