G00SE: Presidential Suite

Fresh sounds from G00SE, as he emerges from his isolation cocoon with a fully formed new video. Presidential Suite was made in its entirety by G00SE, with the In The Balance artist handling every aspect of the process, from writing, producing and recording the music, to shooting and editing the video. Streams of the single are also available.

Wish Master: The Bull (Stream)

New music here from Wish Master as he releases his latest album, The Bull. Following on from the Ral Duke produced intro which emerged the other week, production is varied throughout thanks to contributions from a few unfamiliar names (to me anyway), including Van Dam, Chimera and Niya, as well as the always on point, Hozay. Only two guests involved, with CW Jones lending his vocals to Don’t Waste Time and fellow OR artist, Jordan Nathaniel, dropping in on a few tracks. You can hear the whole project below, with downloads available via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Wish Master: The Bull (Stream)”

Wish Master: THE BULL Intro

New music from Wish Master as he prepares to hit us with one of the multiple projects he’s currently sitting on. The man really is a machine and another one who calls bullshit on the quality over quantity rule; why not both? THE BULL Intro is our first taster from the album and features some nice jazzy production from Ral Duke, who also provided the artwork for the video, which was made by Mr Sleven. THE BULL is due for release on 5 June.

Axel Holy: Let It Go

Another superb track from the new Axel Holy album, which saw its full release on Friday. Baileys Brown’s alter ego is transported into an animated world in the video for Let It Go, thanks to the ample talents of Monsta Art. The track is produced by Jack Danz, I’ve got a proper post about the album en route, but for now enjoy this video and check the full album, Wonderworld, on all good streaming platforms.

Twizzy x Jinxsta JX x Chris Lucas: First Word Last (Stream)

Today sees the full release of the new EP from Bristol MCs, Twizzy and Jinxsta JX and local producer, Chris Lucas. It’s a solid EP from three artists who have been immersed in the scene long enough now for anything other than the music itself to filter away, leaving six tracks of quality rap forged in the group’s collective passion for the culture. Twizzy and Jinxsta’s flows are well-matched by their differences too, which only adds to the project’s appeal. There is also a good selection of features, thanks to on-point contributions from Press1, Ambush Tactics and DJ Rogue. First Word Last is available to stream below, and there are plenty of physicals and bundles up for grabs too. Continue reading “Twizzy x Jinxsta JX x Chris Lucas: First Word Last (Stream)”

DROG Beats: DROP

More fire on this already scorching day, thanks to the new track from one of my favourite Bristol producers, DROG Beats, as he delivers the outrageously filthy, DROP. You might remember talking up DROG before, because he was the guy behind some of Buggsy’s most memorable beats and he made most of them when he was only 15. Talent for real. Streams of DROP are also available.

Axel Holy: Rah Nah

Let’s keep the levels raised with this next one, as the latest single from the forthcoming Axel Holy album is given life. For those still unaware, Axel is the rap alter ego of veteran UK producer, Baileys Brown, and soon he is releasing his debut full-length under that guise. This latest track, Rah Nah, is a self-produced banger, which looms up out of the shadows and gives us further insight into Holy’s world. The album, Wonderworld, is due for release on 29 May via Split Prophets Records.

Billy Whizz: Kobra Kai Style (Stream)

Bristol keeps the rap flag held high with another strong release from the city’s seemingly endless stash of talent, as Billy Whizz returns with his new solo EP. The DJ and producer has amassed a good circle of collaborators over the years and this is demonstrated to superb effect on Kobra Kai Style. Among the instrumental joys we find thought provoking rap joints, like the Wish Master assisted Moves I Make, and soul-drenched, horn-flecked bangers like Fire/Water, which features Bristol OG, Mylo Stone, and vocalist, Melissa Dawn. More weight is added to the EP’s appeal, thanks to two further appearances by Relly and G00SE. You can hear the full thing for yourself below, with downloads and physicals available via Bandcamp.
