Dabbla ups the levels once again with the latest video from last year’s acclaimed Death Moves album. Ably assisted by Rag’N’Bone Man and backed up with some solid production from Foreign Beggars own, Dag Nabbit, Dabbla once again proves his worth on Tweeters. The video features some epic animation and CGI action from Pose Works. Death Moves is out now on Potent Funk.

Very happy to finally be able to bring you the new Baileys Brown solo LP in all its genre-defying glory. If you’re already familiar with Baileys Brown’s work, you will know he is a producer who is not afraid to venture outside the normal constraints of a genre and draw on musical influences from other areas, to create unique soundscapes which are among some of the most ambitious in the UK right now. When he found a home at Potent Funk it seemed like the ideal setting for his exploits, thanks to their already established love of ‘hybrid rap shit’ and with that in mind, Still Fresh serves as the perfect label debut.

As has now become tradition, this month sees the return of the annual High Focus Summer Block Party at, Lakota, the legendary Bristol venue. The label have made big waves in the city over the last few years, thanks to a string of huge parties and this year looks set to continue in similar fashion. Read the rest of this entry »

Another huge track from Baileys Brown as the release date for his solo album draws ever nearer. This time round, the Bristol producer has drafted in his old accomplice, Datkid, as well as his label-mate, Dabbla, with the trio going off in pursuit of that elusive cash money. And once again it’s another stunning visual accomplishment from This & That Media (keep your eyes peeled for plenty of UKHH related cameos too). The album, Still Fresh, is due for release on 26 July on Potent Funk.

Another gem from Dabbla’s Death Moves album, as he unveils the new video for Same Old Me. The track is produced by HashFinger and the video was made by Spin City Visuals. Death Moves is out now on Potent Funk.

Another visual smash from Dabbla and his recent Death Moves LP. Once again he has enlisted the ample talents of Spin City Visuals for the video, with long-term production sparring partner, Sumgii, cooking up another banger for the beat. Death Moves is out now on Potent Funk.

It’s been a long time coming, but yesterday we were finally treated to the full release of the new album from UK favourite, Dabbla. Any regular visitors to my blog will know that I have been championing the album since its coming was announced some months ago. And with good reason because the whole project is a treat for the ears, packed with a standard of lyricism and production high enough to bring the devil himself to tears.
There are plenty of stellar features too from the likes of Rag’N’Bone Man, Eva Lazarus, Illaman, LDZ and Jam Baxter, but the main star is Dabbla who seems to be at his hungriest yet on Death Moves; quite a feat for an MC who has been giving his all to every release since his debut with LDZ.
You can stream the full album below and there is also a brand new video for the title track, produced by Dirty Dike, Pete Cannon and GhostTown. The video itself was made by Obese Aesthetics – the dons behind the hugely successful Psychoville video, from Dabbla’s previous album. You can grab digital/physical copies of the album over at the Potent Funk store. Read the rest of this entry »

A personal favourite from the forthcoming Dabbla album, as the Potent Funk MC unleashes his latest video. Long Gone features fellow Dead Player, Jam Baxter and a filthy beat from long-term collaborator, Sumgii. Just wait for that drop. The video was made by Spin City Visuals. Death Moves is due out on 5 October.

This week we were treated to another new video from Dabbla’s upcoming album, Death Moves. FUTD – aka Fuck Up The Dance – features a crazy beat from Sumgii, complete with Chun Li samples and a full CGI video, complete with UFO crash landings and alien robots. The video was made by Spin City Visuals. The album is due for release on 1 October and features Rag’N’Bone Man, Eva Lazarus, Jam Baxter, Illaman and LDZ.

Next month Bristol welcomes back High Focus Records for their infamous Summer Block Party. Held in the courtyard of legendary venue, Lakota, for the past few years the event has proven to be a huge success and judging by the summer we are currently experiencing, we could see it reach it new heights this time round.
