New single from Brighton artist, Phonetic, as she laces some nice production from Classixs Beats. Lots more to come from Phonetic in the future too, so stay tuned.
This Saturday, the fair city of Brighton once more becomes the epicentre for UK hip hop, as the High Focus gang descend on Concorde 2 for another monumental party.
One for the nostalgia gang, as Hatter and Ceezlin take a step back into the UK garage heyday with their latest collaboration. ’03 is produced by Moony.
Straight out of Brighton comes a cheeky little promo video, for the Ultra Sound event which takes place tonight at Coalition. Harvs Le Toad, Hutch and Louis Loan have put together a lovely little ode to the nation’s favourite post-pub pre-scrap food choice. I know it’s a bit late for a promo video, but it doesn’t kick off until 11pm so head down if you’re in the area. Pete & Bas, Dirty Dike, Sammy B-Side and Pete Cannon are all on the bill so it’s going to be a lively one. Shout out to my Off Licence Magazine family for putting the video out.
Next month the Concorde 2 in Brighton plays host to a number of UK rap luminaries, as they gather in the Southern city in support of a very good cause. For the past few years the Bimiri Foundation have been trying to secure enough funding to build a water pipeline for the Nepalese village of Bimiri. It should go without saying that everyone in the world has the right to clean water access, but as we all know this is very from the reality of the hardships a lot of people have to face every day.

Kicking the week off with the latest release from one of Brighton’s finest, as Hatter returns with his new single. Upside Down also features the ever-capable Eyez, with production from Saffa Ghorishi. The track is taken from Hatter and Saffa’s upcoming Beggars in the Palace project.
You may remember at the start of the year, I put up a piece about AudioActive, the Brighton-based charity that specialises in getting young people involved in making music. Well now they have a new mission and they are in need of our help. The opportunity to move into and develop a large, currently vacant space in Brighton has arisen, which if successful will lead to the expansion of their resources and in turn the number of young people they are able to help and ultimately embolden.

More new music from Hatter, as he continues his regular run of fresh visuals. Kingpin is produced by Jack Chi, with guest features from Mei and Phonetic.
