I’ve been struggling to write more than a couple of paragraphs for the past few months. Various reasons, too boring or personal to go into now, but it does mean I have failed to shine a light on some decent projects that have been given life in the interim. I wanted to do a bit of a catch up to make amends for my slack attitude and also to bring some thoroughly good music to your attention. Read the rest of this entry »

Laid back sounds on the new joint from Obadiah and Chillman. The two MCs unite over a nice lo-fi beat from Moff, with Badhabitz providing the cuts. The video was shot by This & That Media. The track is available to buy now via In The Balance Records.

Big sounds from Durkle Disco representative Unkey, as he off loads a video for Dead & Bury. Taken from his EP of the same name, the filthy beat is laced with some absolute killers from Dread Mc and Illaman. The video was shot by Jay0117. You can grab a digital copy of the EP now over on Bandcamp.

Upfront just released his second solo album and to accompany the launch, there is a brand new video too. The Answer is produced by Bewbonik. The album, Lettermorphosis, is available to buy here.

The third cut from the upcoming Upfront album arrived yesterday, further paving the way for another Split Prophets success. Upfront and Chris Lucas have got a good partnership going and the addition of Evermoor Sound’s Aisha’mae, makes Ugaly a high point for me amongst all these strong, recent releases. The album is up for pre-order now, with a release date scheduled for 28 September.

The collaboration between Eva Lazarus and Mungo’s Hi Fi has given three great tracks, including this little number about the freedom that can be discovered after a break-up. Eva and and the donny ABOVEGROUND headed to Amsterdam to give the video extra credence and the result is this visual treat. The Amsterdam EP is available now from iTunes.

This is the second single to be lifted from Upfront’s forthcoming album, which follows on from 2014’s Upfront & Personal. Fellow Bristol resident, Chris Lucas is the man behind the beats and it sounds like it’s going to be another success for the Split Prophets family. No release date for Lettermorphosis yet, but stay tuned for more news on that as and when.

G.Rich and Drapes have an album on the way and so they are hitting us with a few teasers, including this tight track, featuring production from D£DW8’s finest, Baileys Brown. Winners & Sinners is out soon. The video was shot by JMB Media.

Bars everywhere in the new video from Drapes and Christian King. Both of them tear through the Fuza produced beat, setting the levels for the forthcoming EP from Drapes, Fuza and Danny Le Loup. No release date set yet, but stay tuned for more news on that coming soon.

D£DW8 have teamed up with Crucial Recordings’ own Sleeper for a limited edition vinyl release. The record will feature two new tracks – Dark Things and X Rated – both moody, glitchy and dark as fuck. You can buy the vinyl here and there are digital downloads available here. There is also a video for X Rated, which you can see above.
