Yesterday we were treated to the first sample from the forthcoming Black Josh album, as he released a video for a new track called Nite Time. Featuring production from METRODOME, the track is taken from Mannyfornia, which is due for release soon on Blah Records. Streams of Nite Time are also available.
Brand new video from Lee Scott and Jam Baxter, as they kick of the official release of their album, Happy Hour At The Super Fun Time Party Dome Megamix 4000. When Lee first sent me the LP a few months ago, he did so with the warning that it was weird. I like weird, was my reply. And while it might not be your run of the mill rap album, it definitely remains on the right side of weird, complete with drunk style crooning from Lee. It features production from loads of great names, including Sumgii, Drae Da Skimask, GhostTown, Dirty Dike and Jack Jetson, plus there are guest spots from the likes of Jetson, Stinkin Slumrok, Milkavelli, Trellion and Lyza Jane. The whole thing can be heard below and you can see the video for the Dike produced, Who’s Ur M8, above. It was made by Slim Parisoo. Vinyl copies of the album are available over at the Blah store.

Lyza Jane is a London-based vocalist who has been blessing us with her own distinct style and sound for the past few years. She first came to my attention thanks to her affiliation with Blah Records, including a triumphant collaborative EP with Sniff last year. Lyza has also just released her debut solo album and so I thought now would be a good time to have a chat with her about the new project, her musical heritage and her plans for the future (spoiler: they might involve a lot of wine).

Next up we’ve got the debut album from Lyza Jane, which follows on from a string of singles and an EP with Sniff, which was one of last year’s highlights. I find it hard to pinpoint exactly what genres Lyza’s music fits into, as there are a lot of different influences at work, but hip hop definitely plays a big part in her inspiration. Housebound features appearances from Lee Scott, Black Josh and Danny Lover, with beats from Lee, Sniff and Lyza, who handles the majority of the production herself. You can hear the album in full below, with physicals and merch available via Bandcamp. Stay tuned for an interview with Lyza coming soon. Continue reading “Lyza Jane: Housebound (Stream)”
Two new projects from Blah Records today, starting off with the latest release from Bang On. For Defo Not Normal, the Liverpool MC has joined forces with fellow Blah OG, Reklews, with the pair delivering an EP that is built within the framework of hip hop, before straying off into experimental territories. I’m a big fan of so-called alternative rap and this is a fine example of why. Defo Not Normal is available to stream below and you can find downloads over on Bandcamp. The cover art was made by Matt Littler. Continue reading “Bang On! x Reklews: Defo Not Normal (Stream)”
On the eve of her album release, Lyza Jane gifts us a fresh visual for the Indigo track which surfaced last week. The track features Lee Scott, both on vocals and production, and it is lifted from Housebound, which you can pre-order via Bandcamp.
New music from the always intriguing Nah Eeto, as she blesses us with her latest single. Mafu is produced by Lee Scott and the video was made by @therawwfilmmaker. No word on a full length from her yet, but I’m hoping something appears soon.
Today saw the release of a new video from the Mcabre Brothers. INABIT is produced by fellow Blah resident Jack Danz and the video was made by Grit Multimedia. The track is lifted from a new project – Hot Mess – from the duo which they put together on their recent tour. More news on that soon.
Start your week off the right way with the latest single from Blah vocalist, Lyza Jane. Indigo is the perfect vehicle for her soft touch vocals, thanks in part to Lee Scott’s production, who also drops in his own contribution on the mic. The single is the first single from Lyza’s upcoming Housebound album, which features a host of Blah talent including Black Josh and Danny Lover. Pre-orders are available now. Continue reading “Lyza Jane ft. Lee Scott: Indigo”
Echoes of their 2014 Uvavu project on this new track from Bill Shakes, King Grubb and Lee Scott, as they reunite for theysay. But instead of Reklews on production, this time round the beat is provided by Kiyani. No word on whether this track is part of something larger, so for now just enjoy the loosie.
