DROG Beats: DROP

More fire on this already scorching day, thanks to the new track from one of my favourite Bristol producers, DROG Beats, as he delivers the outrageously filthy, DROP. You might remember talking up DROG before, because he was the guy behind some of Buggsy’s most memorable beats and he made most of them when he was only 15. Talent for real. Streams of DROP are also available.

Sumgii ft. Nah Eeto: Wanawake

Sumgii continues his recent run of wins, with a new single on Swamp81. For Wanawake, the Cult Mountain producer has brought in the inimitable flows of Blah resident, Nah Eeto, as he breathes new life into what was originally the first verse she ever recorded. Digital and vinyl editions are also available, with a Loefah remix featured on the latter.

Sumgii: Who Is Genre Anyway

Sumgii has long been a man who eschews the restrictions that come with placing your music within a specific genre. His label, Potent Funk, have been pushing what they call that ‘hybrid rap shit’ for years, and his production career has seen him crossing from genre to genre, for a whole range of different artists.

Who Is Genre Anyway is out now on Swamp 81.

Featuring over 220 tracks, from Manchester’s musical community, this album does two things – it shows the rich diversity and unity within the various Manchester scenes, plus it also shows that the great city and it’s residents will not be brought down or divided by these horrendous acts.
