Fresh from the finest purveyors of that hybrid rap shit, comes a special new track and video. Problem Child have called on the mighty Foreign Beggars for What You Want?, with Orifice Vulgatron bringing his inimitable flow to Sumgii’s dirty production. Not only that, but the video features none other than comedian and rap fan, Romesh Ranganathan. The video was made by Slim Yearwood and the track is available to buy now over on the Potent Funk Bandcamp page.

Bust out the emmental and enjoy a fresh video from Dabbla, as he brings us his new track, Flying. The Swiss vibe is strong with this one as the track was produced by Dabbla’s Alpine connect, AJSwizzy and the video was shot on location in the Swiss Alps, by Spin City Visuals. The track is available to purchase now via Potent Funk.

A very welcome return for one of the UK’s best loved crews and pioneers of that hybrid rap shit, LDZ. Dabbla, Cobes and Sumgii had been talking about reuniting to make new music together, after smashing out a string of successful side projects and then a couple of weeks ago it was revealed that we would indeed be treated to some new music. Switcheroo is the result and it’s a return to fine form for the gang. I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last we hear from them either. The track is available to buy now on Potent Funk.

Not long ago I warned you of the imminent arrival of potent hybrid rap shit from LDZ favourites, Dabbla and Sumgii. Well now the track is here and it’s as tight as you’d expect. Remember these two have been making music together for years and so the chemistry is there before they even set foot in the lab. Sumgii has been pushing his own levels upwards ever since I first heard him about 10 years ago and Self Made is a good example of what can be achieved if you take that approach.
There is new LDZ music on the way too, but for now make the most of this tasty little banger. The video was made by SpinCity Visuals and you can buy the single here.

It was already in the mid-20’s when I rolled down to this year’s High Focus Block Party in Bristol and it was only going to get hotter, given the days running up to the event. Last year’s party had been a smash and this year looked set to at least rival it, if not surpass it. Doors opened at 2pm so I got down there at about 3pm and already had to deal with the huge queue that had formed; a teeming mass of the new generation of UK hip hop fans all fully loyal to the HF brand (and all of whom I’m pretty sure I was old enough to be their dad).

Check out the next offering from Jam Baxter’s latest album, which has further established him as one of the nation’s most innovative MCs. And with good reason. It’s always going to be hard to follow an album that was lauded as much as So We Ate Them Whole, but he and Chemo have managed to pull it off. Read the rest of this entry »

DJ Frosty is probably best known for his longstanding allegiance with the LDZ gang, but more recently he has come to the fore thanks to his role in the new Chapsville project, alongside Dabbla. I had a quick chat with him about his early days, the birth of LDZ, crate digging and supporting Rag N Bone Man. Read the rest of this entry »

Big tune from Dabbla, as he celebrates the release of his new Chapsville project with DJ Frosty. Arcane is produced by Elliot Yorke aka Metropolis from Foreign Beggars. Chapsville is available to buy here.

The latest track from Dabbla’s forthcoming Chapsville project is here. This time production is handled by fellow LDZ badman, Sumgii. The full release is due out very soon on High Focus Records.

Peep the latest leak from Dabbla and Frost’s upcoming Chapsville project. Uh Huh is produced by Chemo and the video was made by Obese Aesthetics. Chapsville is due out soon on High Focus; more news on that later.
