Ile Flottante & Pertrelli Purple: Gone Trying (Stream)

Very nice sounds emanating from the YOGOCOP camp, as Ile Flottante and Pertrelli Purple release their new collaboration. Heavy on the jazz strains, Flottante’s production blends seamlessly with Pertrelli’s bars, allowing for maximum appreciation of both, without losing anything from either. Weighty on the features too, with Benaddict, NuphZed, Jordan Nathaniel and Bronte Shande, all bringing their voices to the mix. You can hear the full project below, with pre-orders for the vinyl run available over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Ile Flottante & Pertrelli Purple: Gone Trying (Stream)”

Benaddict: Mother Earth

Another treat here from the forthcoming Benaddict album, which sees its release later this month. The YOGOCOP resident has called in Philanthrope and Plusma to handle the production on Mother Earth, resulting in a heavily woozy and vaguely melancholic jazz-fuelled beat, which suits the mood perfectly. Benaddict’s album, Rain Falls, is due for release on 26 June.

Benaddict: Angel Eyes

Very happy to be able to bring you new music from Benaddict, as he returns to the fore with a new single. The Yogocop MC and producer has been relatively silent since his 2018 album, A New Leaf, so it’s nice to hear him back at it, and with a really nice track too. Angel Eyes features production from Mr Slipz, fresh from his recent signing with High Focus alongside Verbz. The track is the first to be taken from Benaddict’s upcoming album, Rain Falls, which I will have more news on soon. The video was made by This & That Media. Pre-orders for Rain Falls are already available.

Harvs Le Toad: Chicks & Tikka Naans (Stream)

Today is also release day for the debut solo LP from Harvs Le Toad. The Yogocop MC has rounded up a strong selection of players to help make Chicks & Tikka Naans a powerful touch paper for the flames that are likely to follow in his career. Production comes from the likes of Benaddict, Mr Slipz and Saulthesame, plus there are some nice features from Dirty Dike, Benaddict, Salmon Hands and CW Jones. The album is available to stream below and you can grab physicals/downloads over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Harvs Le Toad: Chicks & Tikka Naans (Stream)”

Benaddict: Shades Of You

New single from Benaddict, which emerged last week. Shades Of You features joint production from FloFilz and Psalm Trees aka Benaddict’s production alter ego. There is also a B-side called Just Write, which is solely produced by Psalm Trees. As well as the digital version, the Yogocop MC has also pressed a single 10″ vinyl copy which he is currently auctioning off on his Facebook page. The money raised will go to Mind. You can find the details here but be quick cos it closes at 5pm today. You can stream Shades Of You below. Continue reading “Benaddict: Shades Of You”

Benaddict: Rainbow Coloured Weather + Album Stream

Another jewel from the crown that is Benaddict’s latest album. The Yogocop MC was the force behind two of last year’s high points – The Garden of England and Teal – and now he is back with A New Leaf. The production on the album is split between Ded Tebiase and psalm/trees, with both producers tuning into that classic boom bap sound that Benaddict always works best with.

Benaddict: Say Nothing

As I said last week Benaddict has been working on his new album, which is produced by both Ded Tebiase and psalm/trees. This is the first official video, following on from the promo bars he released last week and it sees Tebiase take to the boards for Say Nothing. The single is available to buy and stream now from all the usual platforms. You can also pre-order the vinyl for A New Leaf here.

Benaddict: A New Leaf (Promo Bars)

One of my favourite voices on the UK scene has a new album coming. Benaddict released two excellent albums last year, his solo LP The Garden of England and also Teal, which was a collaboration with vocalist Ella Mae and producer, Slim. 2018 will see him release A New Leaf and this week he dropped a video to help promote the album. No pre-orders or release date yet, but keep an eye open for more on that coming soon. The track was produced by psalm/trees.

Pupils of the Clock: Timeless

Strong debut from South West rap duo, Pupils of the Clock and their Timless album. The pair – Tok and Lazy Eyez – have been steadily building their skills over the past few years and have now reached the point of bringing their music to the critical masses; suffice it to say it was worth the wait.
The list of production credits is testament to their skills on the mic, with names like Benaddict, Chillman and Wundrop all bringing their beats to the project. The result is 12 tracks of solid rap, laced with confidence beyond their years. Looking forward to hearing how they progress from here. You can stream Timeless below and downloads are available via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Pupils of the Clock: Timeless”
