DEDW8 ft. Conway The Machine: Clean The Whole Room Out

Fresh out today is the new AA side from DEDW8, featuring a typically tight guest spot from Conway The Machine. The video is something of a 2 for 1, with the first half showcasing Baileys Brown’s vocal mix, before dropping into 0079’s mix for the final stretch. It’s a smart move, as the contrast between the two versions strengthens the appeal, with Baileys’ heavy drums blending nicely with 0079’s glitchy, bass-heavy formula. The track is available now via the Split Prophets label and there is also a limited vinyl edition too, all of which you can find on Bandcamp.

Conway The Machine & The Alchemist: Calvin

Fresh visuals from the Conway and Alchemist project which was given life on Friday. Calvin is more of the tough street commentary that has brought Conway and his Griselda family so much praise over recent years, and combined with Alchemist’s moody production it stands as a solid release in both artists catalogues. The video for Calvin was made by Jason Goldwatch. LULU is out now.

Conway the Machine & The Alchemist ft. Schoolboy Q: Shoot Sideways

Conway and Alchemist have an album on the way, continuing Griselda’s year on year rise and perhaps serving up one of the year’s best in the process. Shoot Sideways is a good indicator of what’s coming, with Conway and Alc drafting in TDE favourite, Schoolboy Q, for a patois tinged hook. The album, LULU, is due for release this month, with pre-orders available now.

Skyzoo & Pete Rock: Retropolitan (Stream)

This week we finally got to explore the much anticipated collaboration from Skyzoo and Pete Rock, as they released their Retropolitan LP. The two NY representatives have crafted an album that is at once an ode to the city they love and a cautionary tale about the gentrification that is so prevalent throughout the Five Boroughs.

Skyzoo & Pete Rock ft. Westside Gunn, Conway, Benny The Butcher & Elzhi: Eastern Conference All-Stars

Skyzoo and Pete Rock treat us to the second single from their forthcoming abum, featuring an altogether ridiculous list of guests. The NY duo are joined by four lyrical heavyweights on Eastern Conference All Stars, as Griselda’s Westside Gunn, Conway and Benny The Butcher all hitting the booth, with Detroit favourite, Elzhi completing the line-up. It’s as powerful as you can imagine and you can hear for yourself below. The album, Retropolitan, is due for release on Mello Music Group on 20 September.

Datkid & Leaf Dog ft. Conway: Eyes

As anticipation grows for the new Datkid album, today saw the release of the second video from the project. Eyes features Griselda heavyweight, Conway, as well as a verse from the album’s sole producer, Leaf Dog. The video was made by This & That Media. Confessions Of A Crudlord is coming soon on High Focus.

The Alchemist: Bread EP (Stream)

Excellent new release from The Alchemist, as he drafts in a whole wealth of talent on his latest project. The Bread EP features Earl Sweatshirt – the video for which was released last week – alongside appearances from Conway, Westside Gunn, Black Thought and Roc Marciano. Considering the whole thing only weighs in at four tracks – plus four instrumentals – Alc has managed to cram in a hell of a lot of dope. It also features some of the most glorious cover art of 2018. You can stream the Bread EP below, as well as on all the other usual platforms. Continue reading “The Alchemist: Bread EP (Stream)”
