Dabbla x alllone: Bad Tuesday (Stream)

After a particularly strong introduction to the Potent Funk roster, Austrian production team, alllone, return to the fore with their full debut, Bad Tuesday.

You can check out the full EP below, with downloads available direct from Potent Funk.

Dabbla x alllone: AdeptĀ 

Fresh music from the Potent Funk family, with the arrival of new additions, alllone. The Austrian production duo make their label debut with the assistance of PF veteran, Dabbla, who is the main collaborator on their upcoming EP. Adept is the first single and is the perfect fit for a label that has championed the hybrid rap sound over the years. Looking forward to hearing what the remainder of the EP has in store. Bad Tuesday is out in full on 22 November.

Dabbla x Illaman x GEAR x Benofficial: Main Man Syndrome

From UK to US as Potent Funk flex their collective talent on this latest single. Main Man Syndrome features spoken bullets from Dabbla, Illaman, GEAR and Benofficial, as well as some perfectly matched musical accompaniment from Forest DLG. It’s an illuminating collaboration and the video also gives you the opportunity to see Dabbla getting tattooed on a bus. Say no more.

Problem Child: Me

A new drop for an old track here, as Potent Funk dust off one of their most cherished releases in the form of Problem Child’s 730 EP. The EP was recently given the remastering treatment and released back into a world very much in need of its anarchic energy and zero bullshit pedigree. For those unfamiliar, Problem Child was originally made up of Dabbla, Dubbledge and Sumgii, before Illaman joined their ranks not long after. They still exist under the updated moniker, Still A Problem, and I think we are due some new music soon, which would help explain the rejuvenated EP we’ve been blessed with. Check out the video for Me above and then head here to check the rest of the project.

Dabbla x Sumgii: Out My Way

Fresh visual stimulation from the Potent Funk family, as Dabbla and Sumgii reveal the latest video from their recent Nobody LP. Once again, it’s This & That Media who are the brains behind the video, which features cameos from a selection of perhaps familiar faces, including Jester Jacobs and Alenee Aisha. Nobody is out now on all the usual platforms, with physicals available via Potent Funk.

Dabbla x Sumgii: Nobody (Video) + LP Stream

New visual antics from Dabbla and Sumgii, as they celebrate the release of their new album with a fresh video. Nobody is the titular track, as well as the opener, and as you will hear the duo kick things off with a bass-heavy bang. I’ve got a proper review coming in The Wire next month, but just know that for my money this is Dabbla’s strongest work to date, and when he’s alongside a producer he knows that well and the producer is as talented as Sumgii is, then you’re already looking at a recipe for success, which is easily surpassed on Nobody. The tense, bloodthirsty visuals come courtesy of This & That Media. Nobody is out now on Potent Funk and you can stream it in full below.

Dabbla x Sumgii: Shimmy

If you go down to the woods today, you might stumble upon some strange scenes, as Dabbla unveils the lead single from his forthcoming collab with Sumgii. Having known each other for years and worked on music together for almost as long, these are two artists who would find it virtually impossible to put out a dud on their solo efforts, let alone when they join forces like this. Shimmy is a good intro to their twisted, glitchy world, accompanied by some acid-tinged visuals with Dabbla channelling the spirit of the good Dr Gonzo. The video was made by This & That Media. Nobody is due for release next month on Potent Funk.
