New visual bliss from Old Children, as they release another single from their Push Start EP, that emerged this time last year. Once again Booda French and HPBLK are on mic duties, with King Kashmere on the beat. A supreme team up. The video was made by Honey JD. Push Start is available now via Louis Den.
Regular visitors to my blog might have noticed a lack of new content over recent weeks. Life unfortunately does have a habit of getting in the way, but it can’t keep a good blogger down for long, so consider this the first of a few fresh updates.
What better way to reignite the feed, than with the latest from friend of the blog, Booda French. Booda has been dropping sporadic gems over the last couple of years, but now he returns with a definite release on the horizon, in the form of his new LP, The Loser’s Victory Lap. Championship Rings is the latest leak from the album and sees the Ipswich vet teaming up with Jehst, over some nice production from Jaisu.
Booda and Jaisu previously collaborated on Fortune Cookies, which also features on a new 7″ vinyl release, alongside Championship Rings. The vinyl is available to pre-order now via Bandcamp, with the album set to follow shortly. Check below for the full track and keep an eye open for more news on the album coming soon.
A fresh sesh from Booda French, as he gets amongst the greenery with some bars for Law Spot Records. The beat was produced by Cyril Snare.
I’ve got a healthy dose of UK raps for you today, starting off with newly emerged crew, Old Children. Newly emerged they may be, but Old Children is actually comprised of three established artists; namely Booda French, HPBLK (Hyperbolic) and King Kashmere, who decided to pool their talents and put out an understandably strong debut EP. Push Start serves as a fine introduction to Old Children’s methods, with the deftness of Booda and HPBLK’s bars, marrying perfectly with the audible triumph of Kashmere’s production. The first video from the EP was released yesterday, courtesy of Honey JD, and the rest is available to explore below, including the Ramson Badbonez and Jazz T assisted, Louder. Downloads are available now via Louis Den and keep an eye out for physicals coming soon.
An ode to automation, isolation and the art of avoiding the public, involuntarily or otherwise, as Booda French drops off his latest single. Self Service Tills is produced by Kevin J Simon.
Another tight single from Booda French, as he keeps the pace going after his last release at the start of the month. For Fortune Cookies, the Ipswich MC has roped in Jaisu for production duties, leading to a soul-tinged but drum heavy number, with Booda delivering solid bar after solid bar. Releases from Booda have been intermittent over the last couple of years, but I’m hoping that these two recent singles are a sign he’s got something bigger en route, because he remains one of the better lyricists to reside on these shores.
Always happy to see the arrival of new music from Booda French and this time he’s teamed up with fellow Ipswich don, Muckaniks, resulting in this drum-heavy banger. Big is a take on the classic flossin’ joints that have been a staple of rap ever since Big Bank Hank told us about his bodyguards and two big cars. You can stream the track in full below and downloads are available over on Bancamp. Continue reading “Booda French: Big”
Booda French makes a welcome return to my blog, with his latest single. It’s Always Raining in Ipswich takes inspiration from one of his best-loved TV shows, as he gets busy over a typically filthy beat from Ocean Wisdom favourite & fellow Ipswich native, Muckaniks. The track is out now on EatGood Records.
A very welcome return to the booth from Booda French, as he releases his new single featuring some typically luxurious production from EatGood head honcho, SonnyJim. You can stream Vintage Berbatov below.
Fresh from the EatGood camp, comes a new track from Booda French. Masterpiece is produced by the donny, King Kashmere and was inspired by the Chelsea Hotel in NY. It is available for your streaming pleasure below. Continue reading “Booda French: Masterpiece”
