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.

Drapes is fast becoming one of the more prolific rappers in Bristol right now and with another project looming, it looks set to continue in the same vein for a while. Let Them Talk is the next track to be lifted from 1s & 0s and features production from ENAM, who does a tight remix of a Snow Tha Product remix. The video was shot by JMB Media.

Another helping of dope from the forthcoming Datkid album, laced over another looming banger from Baileys Brown. No official release date for the album yet, but word is it’s not too far off.

Bristol out in full force on the new joint from G.Rich, as he enlists the help of local heads, Drapes and Springa on Out The Swamp. The trio go verse for verse over an ominous beat from dubL $w£ggrz. This is the next track to be lifted from G.Rich’s recent release, George’s Marvellous Medicine, which you can find here.

It was already in the mid-20’s when I rolled down to this year’s High Focus Block Party in Bristol and it was only going to get hotter, given the days running up to the event. Last year’s party had been a smash and this year looked set to at least rival it, if not surpass it. Doors opened at 2pm so I got down there at about 3pm and already had to deal with the huge queue that had formed; a teeming mass of the new generation of UK hip hop fans all fully loyal to the HF brand (and all of whom I’m pretty sure I was old enough to be their dad).

Nice solo joint from Verbal Highz MC, Goose, which is taken from the crew’s forthcoming LP. When I Spit is produced by Goose, with Habitus bringing the tasty cuts. The video was made by Sektion Red.

Bristol MC, Upfront, is hitting us with a new album shortly, the follow-up to his Upfront & Personal LP from 2014. The Split Prophet member has obviously been putting in the work in the meantime, as is demonstrated on the first single from the project, Contagious. The track is produced by fellow Bristol artist, Chris Lucas (Arun Productions), with cuts from DJ Rogue and a wicked video from Parallel Media.

Another great track from the Dutch Mob EP that was released back in April. Little Brother sees Res on a solo tip, giving some words of advice to one of his youngers. Great concept and a wicked video from This & That Media, who are going from strength to strength with each new release. The track was produced by Illinformed. The Passport EP is available to buy now.
