The track sees Baxter uniting once again with frequent lab partner, Chemo, as well as AboveGround who brings his usual skill set to the proceedings. The Touching Scenes album is available now from the High Focus store.

Start your week with the latest video to be taken from Scran Cartel’s Blue Plaque Candidates LP. For Dundee, Benny Diction and MNSR Frites brought in the ever-reliable Chemo to handle the production. If you haven’t checked out the album yet, downloads are available on Bandcamp.
Today sees the release of the latest album from High Focus’s resident hallucinogenics advocate, Jam Baxter. Touching Scenes follows on from last year’s acclaimed Mansion 38 album, which saw Baxter reuniting with Chemo, having scored a previous success together back in 2014 with So We Ate Them Whole. For this album he has chosen to branch out into additional production territory, drafting in some strong names – Last Japan, Sumgii, Sam Zircon and GhostTown – giving the entire project a very different feel to his previous two offerings. It all works brilliantly though, with Baxter’s imagery as dark as ever. Continue reading “Jam Baxter ft. Rag’n’Bone Man & OG Rootz: Mask (Video) + Album Stream”
