Baileys Brown ft. Lee Scott & Dabbla: Something Else Entirely (Not Human) + Album Stream

Very happy to finally be able to bring you the new Baileys Brown solo LP in all its genre-defying glory.

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.
