Following on from the crushingly moderate success of my Q&A with Forest DLG, which took place after his name change, I’m now back with another question session with the artist formerly known as Ded Tebiase. The Village Live producer recently announced he was ditching the moniker that had been attached to his work since the beginning, in favour of the arguably improved and definitely more intriguing, Galloping Ghosts. As with the Forest DLG chat, this is not a place for serious journalistic integrity, but more a light-hearted probe into the name change and his feelings regarding supernatural things. When you’re done reading, make sure you go and stake a claim for his new project alongside vocal duo, Horned Hannes, which is out now on Village Live Records.Continue reading “What’s In A Name?

Struggling to keep up with the flurry of releases from Village Live, as they continue to gift us gems from their new compilation album, Village Live is Five, but had to share this new video from some of my favourites. Bristol very much in the building, with Ded Tebiase reigniting old successes as he joins forces with Axel Holy once more, along with Wish Master and some supreme cuts from DJ Madhandz. The video was made by Max Kelan Pearce Productions. Village Live is Five is available to pre-order now.
It’s great to be able to share the full album from Ded Tebiase and Ash The Author with you, having had it in heavy rotation for the past couple of weeks since it found its way into my inbox. If you’re familiar with Tebiase’s 2017 Landspeed LP, then you will no doubt also be familiar with the strength of his creative partnership with Ash, thanks to their initial collab, Yeah.

I am very pleased to bring you the premiere of the latest video from Village Live Records. Transmit is the lead single from the label’s forthcoming release, which is a collaborative effort between Ded Tebiase and Ash The Author. Tebiase is no stranger to Village Live, having released his accalaimed solo album, Landspeed, on there back in 2017. One of the many highlights of that album was the track, Yeah, featuring Ash The Author and which brings us nicely back to this new release.

A quality debut album from one of the finest purveyors of boom bap in the UK right now, as Parallax releases Auditory Vision. Having built up a name for himself through live shows and his 2014 EP, Depth Perception, the London MC has spent the last few years putting together his debut full-length. The wait was well worth it, with AV demonstrating exactly how his talents have been honed in that four year interim. The features help to bolster the album’s appeal too, with Rakaa Iriscience, C.A.M and Phoenix Da Icefire helping Parallax tear down beats from the likes of Ded Tebiase, Nappa and Wickstarr. Auditory Vision is available to stream in full below and there are also downloads, physicals and merch to nab over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Parallax: Auditory Vision (Stream)”
Another jewel from the crown that is Benaddict’s latest album. The Yogocop MC was the force behind two of last year’s high points – The Garden of England and Teal – and now he is back with A New Leaf. The production on the album is split between Ded Tebiase and psalm/trees, with both producers tuning into that classic boom bap sound that Benaddict always works best with.
As I said last week Benaddict has been working on his new album, which is produced by both Ded Tebiase and psalm/trees. This is the first official video, following on from the promo bars he released last week and it sees Tebiase take to the boards for Say Nothing. The single is available to buy and stream now from all the usual platforms. You can also pre-order the vinyl for A New Leaf here.
If you hadn’t already worked it out, Landspeed was one of my favourite albums from 2017. Ded Tebiase completely averted falling foul of the curse of the sophomore project and delivered a fitting follow up to 2016’s Seventy Five. Ferrari Loafers is one of the many highlights from the album and features Da Flyy Hooligan – another UK artist who has had a great year. The video was filmed in the legendary Rarekind Records in Brighton. Landspeed is out now on all the usual platforms.
