Continuing with the element of surprise, today sees the release of the latest album from Lee Scott, which was recently announced unexpected. Somewhere Between Here and There is worthy of consideration for your end of year lists, with Lee on fine form both behind the mic and behind the boards. His self-produced tracks are often among the highlights of his releases and this latest project is no exception, with tracks like An Ear For Violence, lingering in your mind after they end. That particular song hears Lee recollecting two dark events from his past and is in my opinion, one of his strongest tracks to date. Features on the LP come from BeTheGun, Milkavelli, King Grubb, Obijuan and looms., plus there is production from Lee, Wholesome Fun, Dylantheinfamous, Bisk and Kiyani. You can listen to the album below and a limited edition vinyl version is available via Blah. There is also a video for the Bisk helmed, Table, which you can watch below.

New release from Sniff as he teams up with the always on point, Formz, for 100 Vices.

Keep an ear out for more music from Sniff and Formz coming later this year. Continue reading “Sniff x Formz: 100 Vices (Stream)”
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.

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.
