The debut EP from Bristol-based vocalist, Anna Lisa, was given life this week. If you’re unfamiliar with her music, she manages to combine a haunting vocal style with electronic, sometimes trap-heavy beats, which create a very immersive and atmospheric sound. Unfollowed was premiered this week by Nitelife Magazine and you can now hear the full thing below. It was co-written and produced with MUSSI. Keep an eye on Anna Lisa’s socials (@annalisa_uk) because I know she’s got a lot more to come. Read the rest of this entry »

Very much enjoying this new track from Bristol-based MC, Riski. He first came on my radar at a hip hop show last year, when a mutual friend introduced us (shout out to Amy from Momz Spaghetti). Now as a rule, if you’re involved in the rap scene and a young MC approaches you at an event and asks to spit a 16 in your ear, it has tendency to play out quite badly. But as we all know most rules have their exceptions and that’s exactly what I found with Riski. Looking forward to seeing what he’s got in store for the future, but for now enjoy this Ybeats Product produced gem.

Baileys Brown keeps us hooked with another new video from his recent Still Fresh LP. Swim sees the Bristol producer teaming up with fellow SW rap aficionados and regular collaborators, Datkid, Jinxsta JX and Hozay, all rounded off with a slick video from Don Wavey. The album is out now on Potent Funk.

Another sure shot from Wish Master as the Bristol MC continues his climb to the top with another solid track from his Boom Bap to the Future album. Grinding is produced by Baileys Brown and features fellow rap merchant, Scarboy. The video was made by Chris Lucas. Boom Bap to the Future is available to download now.

My hometown is a renowned birthplace for refreshing musical ventures, which is exactly what Jasi has tapped into with his latest release. You may remember me premiering one of his videos earlier in the year and now he returns with a brand new EP. The Cruel World EP is six tracks deep, with each chapter giving a fine insight into Jasi’s adventurous approach to his craft, as he blends rap with other vocal elements. It’s definitely more of a commercially viable record, which might put some listeners off, but beyond those hallmarks this is still a project brimming with sense and soul. You can hear the EP in full below and downloads can be found over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

More soulful trap nourishment from Anna Lisa, as the Bristol-based vocalist blesses us with her latest single. Purple is once again co-produced by Anna Lisa and Mussi, who have definitely struck up a winning formula. Purple is available to download now.

Jay0117 hits us with another banger as he takes us through his typical daily escapades in A Day In The Life. For this track the Bristol MC has teamed up with local grime producer, Guido, and the video was made by Patch Productions. Streams of A Day In The Life are also available from the usual platforms.

Very happy to finally be able to bring you the new Baileys Brown solo LP in all its genre-defying glory. If you’re already familiar with Baileys Brown’s work, you will know he is a producer who is not afraid to venture outside the normal constraints of a genre and draw on musical influences from other areas, to create unique soundscapes which are among some of the most ambitious in the UK right now. When he found a home at Potent Funk it seemed like the ideal setting for his exploits, thanks to their already established love of ‘hybrid rap shit’ and with that in mind, Still Fresh serves as the perfect label debut.

Heavy is also available to download and stream.
