We have also recently been blessed with the long-awaited Hardcorepimpfunk LP from Bisk, produced in full by Morriarchi. More on that to follow, but for now you can enjoy a taste with the video for Koyote, which was released today. Gritty visuals for a gritty track. Hardcorepimpfunk is available now on Blah Records.

Trying to keep up with Bisk projects is nigh on impossible, as the Blah MC doesn’t seem to stop releasing tape after tape, EP after EP. Hardcorepimpfunk is the latest release looming on the horizon and One & Only is the latest glimpse we have at it. The track is produced by Morriarchi, who is behind the boards for the whole project, which is due out on Blah on 22 June, marking his first vinyl release on the label. The video was made by Huw Caddy.

Here is the next instalment from the eagerly awaited Cult of the Damned album. Salt Water is produced by Sam Zircon and features some typically deft bars from Bisk, Lee Scott, Salar, Stinkin Slumrok and Black Josh. The COTD album is scheduled for release this Friday and I can tell you now, it is most definitely worth your attention. Pre-orders are available here.

With the wave of their recent comeback video still riding high and with the imminent arrival of their Part Deux: Brick Pelican Posse Crew Gang Syndicate album, Cult of the Damned have announced a UK tour. The crew will be passing through six cities in total, over three consecutive weekends in April and May. It is going to be a full gang experience, with Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Black Josh, Stinkin Slumrok, Sniff, Salar, Sly Moon, Barebase, King Grubb, Bill Shakes, Bisk and Tony Broke on the bill, as well as a special UK appearance from Canada’s own cult associate, Danny Lover. Plus Reklews, Sam Zircon, Jazz T and Sumgii holding down the decks.

More new music from Bang On!, as he gears up to hit us with his latest project, The Power of Not Being Arsed. Patio is the first drop from the release and features fellow Blah associates, Lee Scott and Bisk on a left field wave, thanks to Morriarchi’s production. The Power of Not Being Arsed is due for digital release tomorrow.

The ever-prolific Bisk recently released his Rawson’s Creek album, which features this grimy episode, Flatblock Marina. Joined by the mythical, Trellion and backed up by a great beat from FORMZ, Flatblock Marina is the sort of track that defines Bisk’s whole sound. You can listen for yourself below.

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.

Right now I’d put Bisk on a par with Curren$y in terms of work rate. The Blah Records MC has put out a crazy number of projects over the course of the past two years and now within the first two weeks of 2018, he is back with another one.
Entirely produced by fellow Swamp Harbour dweller, Sam Zircon, SAUCEMONEY is laden with all the street stories and fuck you attitude that has made Bisk a favourite among the Blah cult members and beyond. Blah have put the album in full on a handy video for you, which you can watch above. Downloads are available here.

Great song from Lyza Jane, as she brings her blissed out, air-like vocals to Easy. Production is handled by Formz, with a nice little guest spot from Bisk. The track is lifted from Lyza’s recent EP, Nobody But You, which features appearances from Milkavelli, Nah Eeto and Jam Baxter.

I’ve been struggling to write more than a couple of paragraphs for the past few months. Various reasons, too boring or personal to go into now, but it does mean I have failed to shine a light on some decent projects that have been given life in the interim. I wanted to do a bit of a catch up to make amends for my slack attitude and also to bring some thoroughly good music to your attention. Read the rest of this entry »
