A fresh video from Datkid and Illinformed, as they continue to polish off the gems from their WAKMO album. Thorn in Your Side sees the duo teaming up with another duo – although they share a common partner in the shape of Illinformed – with a typically rowdy guest spot from Babylon Dead, WAKMO is out now on High Focus.

Babylon Dead: The Underworld
Ever wondered what it would be like if Aardman ditched the kids TV angle and decided to take up arms in the eternal battle against law enforcement? Well look no further than the latest video from Babylon Dead, where they bring claymation vibes to their usual brand of anti-authoritarian ragga rap. The Underworld is the third single from their sophomore album, Book of the Dead, which is due for release on 4 September. The video was made by Chris Younes.
Babylon Dead: Resistance
Babylon Dead continue to flex their anti-authoritarian muscle with the next single from their forthcoming album. The much anticipated Book of the Dead is due for release on 4 September, along with an accompanying graphic novel which has been exclusively created by Greg Blackman. Resistance is another rabble rousing anthem, with Jman’s energising flows tearing through Illinformed’s latest brooding bassline. The video was made by Badger. Pre-orders for the album are live on Bandcamp.
Babylon Dead: Nineteen84 + LP News
A very welcome and much needed return by Babylon Dead, as they bless us with the first single from their long-awaited second album. It’s been three years since Jman and Illinformed burst onto the scene with their refreshing brand of ragga-hip hop, tearing up stages and people’s preconceptions in the process. Now they’re back with Book of the Dead, an ambitious project which also features an accompanying graphic novel, courtesy of Greg Blackman. The first single, Nineteen84, saw its release today so go and absorb that, then get over to Bandcamp to secure your pre-order. Trust me, this is an essential one. The video for Nineteen84 was made by Rogue Ethic. The album is due for release on 4 September on RLD Records.
Babylon Dead: Empire
The long awaited Babylon Dead album is finally given life today and to celebrate the release, JMan and Illinformed have released a brand new video for Empire. Where as previous tracks have put the police in BD’s sights, Empire opens fire on the EDLs and Britain Firsts of this green and pleasant land. The album itself is available to buy now from the RLD store.
Babylon Dead: Voodoo
Jman and Illinformed have served up the latest single from their eagerly awaited Babylon Dead album and it’s another killer. More menacing and brooding than Leatherface on a comedown, the whole album looks set to be a valuable thorn in the side of authority. The video was made by Si Haze. The release date is set for 27 October and you can pre-order now.
Babylon Dead: ACAB
I’ve been waiting a long time for the Babylon Dead album to see life. Now the release date is fast approaching and we’ve got a new video to keep us fiendin’ for these last few weeks. The whole BD brand is fuelled by a deep rooted hatred for the police and the establishment in general, so it seems only right that this new joint is called ACAB. The album, 2000 B.D., is due out on RLD Records on 27 October and pre-orders are available here.
