Entertaining video from Res One and Illinformed, as they hit us with another gem from their recent album, A Dogs Dreams. No. Your Business features a few cameos and a lot of bobble heads, thanks to another great visual from This & That Media. A Dogs Dreams is out now on Green Brick Records.

A few months ago I was at the Bristol Harbourside Festival and one of the stages was focusing on young artists within the city. There was a hell of a lot of talent on display that day, but one of the acts that really caught my eye was a young female vocalist called Olivia rose. I think the main thing that piqued my interest was that she was singing over trap beats, something that is still quite a unique sound on the UK scene – with the exception of acts like IAMDDB who have turned it into a lucrative formula. Today saw the release of Olivia’s new EP and is a good showcase for her vocal talent, as well as a good indicator of how far she will be able to take her music as her career and confidence continue to grow. You can stream the Roses EP below and you can also grab a download over on iTunes. Read the rest of this entry »

Pupils of the Clock MC, Lazy Eyez, recently announced his new affiliation with the recently formed Bristol label, Green Brick Records. Own Wave is his first official release on the label and sets the bar pretty high for what’s to follow. The track is produced by fellow label mate, Badhabitz and the video was made by Bucket Hat Jack.

For The Love is the latest track to be lifted from the new album from Res One and Illinformed. The Bristol duo released A Dogs Dreams last week, the debut drop for Green Brick Records. Head to their store now to cop one of the last few vinyl copies, or check Bandcamp for your digital needs. The video was my Bucket Hat Jack.

Happy to see the arrival of the debut album from Green Brick Records, as Res One and Illinformed drop the long-awaited A Dogs Dreams. Featuring 11 tracks from the UK stalwarts, plus a whole host of guest spots from the likes of Inja, Verb T, Smellington Piff and Leaf Dog, as well as Res’s fellow Split Prophets, the album is a strong start for the fledgling label. You can stream the full project below, with downloads and limited edition vinyl available over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

Strong stuff from the Bristol scene, as Rogue & Relly release their new album. Both Rogue and Relly, producer and MC respectively, have been on the circuit for years so this album was always going to be full of promise and at 14 tracks deep, I’m pleased to say it delivers on that promise. Features come from Upfront MC, who drops in on Push The Button and Terminal of Innalife Rhymes, who appears on Strangers. Let Them Know is available to stream below and you can get physicals via AFT Raps. Read the rest of this entry »

Last Friday saw the arrival of the next video to be taken from Twizzy’s latest album, Old Dog No Tricks. Old Flow features production from Billy Whizz and some great visuals from Chris Lucas (Although this blog would never condone bicycle theft). The album is out now on AFT Raps.

Pleased to see the arrival of the new EP from Sylla B, which was released today on VRBL Records. The title comes from finding that balance between the anxiety that affects a lot of artists, juxtaposed with the bravado they have to muster when they perform. Six tracks deep with production from Just Sayin, Tom Moore, Moody Lew, Lieu and SLWGD. You can stream the EP below and downloads are available over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

A welcome return for Twizzy, as he releases his latest album, Old Dog No Tricks. It’s been a while since his last release, back in February last year, but pleased to say the Bristol MC is still as on point as ever. It’s a collaboration between Twizzy and his old friend and collaborator, Billy Whizz, with the pair having such a good chemistry that whatever they turn their collective minds to is always going to work. There are plenty of local features too, with G00SE, Sylla B, Ambush Tactics and Jinxsta JX all dropping in with nice verses. The album is available to stream below, with downloads and physicals available over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

AFT Raps continue to go from strength to strength, as they ready another new release. Beachy Winter is the lead single from the forthcoming album from Rogue & Relly, the Bristol duo who go hard throughout. If you’re in Bristol, you’d be wise to head down to the release party on 21 September, where you’ll find a wealth of rap talent including a performance from TF veteran, Klashnekoff. The video was made by Chris Lucas.
