New joint from Jay Saya, as he turns his attention to the themes of loneliness and isolation, and how they can be instrumental in finding solace. Ably assisted by vocalist, Rosalind Ledger and Task Force vet, Chester P, the track is an atmospheric blend of synths and drums which lend an appropriate feel to the topics at hand. Continue reading “Jay Saya ft. Rosalind Ledger & Chester P: Solace”
A very welcome return from Chester P, as he releases his latest album along with an accompanying video.

Surprise new video from Chester P, as he releases fresh visuals for one of the gems from his recent EP. Hands Up is the closing track on The Post Apocalyptic Story Teller and it takes aim at those MCs who feel the need to be lenient with the truth about their supposed gangster lifestyles. The track is produced by Chester and Django Mankub.
Over a year ago we were treated to a new video from UK rap veteran, Chester P, with the promise of a new project to follow. Now I am pleased to be able to say that the Task Force MC and producer has fulfilled that promise and today has delivered The Post Apocalyptic Story Teller. Produced entirely by Chester and Django Mankub, the EP is a fine snapshot of the mindset and inner visions of one of the more complex lyricists this isle has ever birthed. There are no features credited on Bandcamp, but I know for a fact that DRS makes an appearance on Melancholic Flowers – the video of which you can see below. You can also stream the EP below, with downloads available via Real Talk Records. Continue reading “Chester P: The Post Apocalyptic Story Teller (Stream)”

Yesterday saw the release of the next video from the album, this time for the track Don, which is produced by Pete Cannon. Pre-orders for Wizville are available now over at the High Focus store.
A little menacing number from the Brothers McBane, which appeared out of the blue yesterday and sees Chester taking just two minutes to remind us why he is one of the nicest lyricists to come out of this country. Both him and Farma seem to have acquired a new lease of life recently, with the promise of a ton of new music scheduled for next year, both individually and as Task Force. Fuck Them! can be stream below. Continue reading “Chester P X Farmabeats: Fuck Them!”
There aren’t many crews as respected and as influential as Task Force; the brothers paved the way for a lot of the artists who are making music in this country today. When they announced their reunion tour, the scene reacted with understandable glee and since then we have been told that there is new music on the way as well. Continue reading “Chester P: The P.A.S.T”
I had to write ‘everyone’ cos I literally cannot fit all the MCs names into the title. 20 rappers, eight bars a piece.

Phi Life Cypher, Smellington Piff, BVA, Cracker Jon, Jehst, Jack Jetson, Dirty Dike, Verb T, Sonnyjim, Mysdiggi, Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Bill Shakes, Eric The Red, King Kashmere, Remus, Task Force and DJ Sammy B-Side providing the cuts.
