Coosie is set to release his solo album in the not too distant future and today marks the arrival of the first single. State of Zen features fellow Verbal Highz member, G00SE, who also handles the production. The video was made by Dfacer. Bobadundee Flows is due for release on 13 June.

Upfront returns with another new video as he rounds off his recent double A-side release. Spectator is produced by Chris Lucas, who is also the brains behind the video. Look At This/Spectator is available now on digital download.

Anna Lisa is a vocalist from Bristol who brings haunting melodies to trap heavy beats. She’s still in the infancy of her career, but she definitely possesses the necessary skills to make a name for herself in the UK and beyond. Courage is her most recent single and serves as a fine introduction to her approach to music. The track is produced by regular collaborator, MUSSI and the video was made by Cineview Productions.

More solid head nod vibes from Wish Master as he treats us to the next video to be taken from his recent album. Jupiter features fellow MC, Glock, with the pair trading verses over another fine slice of production from Baileys Brown. The video was made by Chris Lucas. Boombap To The Future is out now on Official Recordings.

Bristol-based MC, Wish Master (FKA Wish) is one of many artists in the UK who has been consistently going from strength to strength for a while now and this new solo album feels like the culmination of all that effort. Despite having put out a number of releases over the years, this is the first full-length solo LP that Wish Master has blessed us with and it is a worthy addition to his ever-expanding catalogue.
As the title suggests, this is something of a head-nod extravaganza, thanks to the always reliable Baileys Brown, who handles virtually all the production on the album. There are also a few notable guest spots along the way, with Tac, Glock, Tug MC, Scarboy, Jordan Nathaniel, Walter Black and Buggsy on hand to bolster the project. You can stream Boombap To The Future in full below, with downloads and physicals available via Bandcamp, including a limited edition double vinyl run. Read the rest of this entry »

The Forecast EP is due for release on 15 April, with pre-orders available over on Bandcamp. The video was made by Parallel Media.

Another great video from the equally great Lazy Eyez album, which emerged recently. Fly Away is produced by Lords & Royals, with vocal assistance from Babychaz. The video was made by Upraw. Coastline to Cityscape is out now on Green Brick Records.

Next month on 18 April, as is now customary in Bristol, High Focus will roll into town en masse to celebrate their 9th birthday. Following on from last year’s success, once again they will takeover the SWX nightclub which is situated bang in the middle of town and will bring with them a selection of the finest artists that their ever-increasing roster has to offer.
On the bill this year we have performances from The Four Owls, Jam Baxter, Coops, Onoe Caponoe, Ed Scissor, Strange U, Ronnie Bosh and Pitch 92 as well as their latest signing Datkid, plus loads more MCs and DJs to get the place jumping.
