More music from Baileys Brown and this time a reunion of sorts, as he joins forces with Datkid once again for a new EP. Grubby Mits follows in the footsteps of joints like Teeth Ledger and the pivotal, Home By 8, which was the release that first brought Datkid to the attention of many UK rap fans. On this new EP, the duo are joined by some familiar names, including Datty’s SP affiliate, Flying Monk, who drops in on Better Than The Rest, alongside fellow Bristol rap advocate, Draper. There is also a Blah link up courtesy of Stinkin Slumrok, on the closing track, Yeah Right. You can hear the EP in full for yourself below, with downloads available via Bandcamp.Continue reading “Datkid x Baileys Brown: Grubby Mits (Stream)”

More rugged styles from the D£DW8 lot as they drop a little exclusive. Bewbonik and Dee Green on the raps, with Ivylab on the beat.

The debut album from D£DW8 is due out on Monday and trust me, it is worth the hype. As if we needed reminding of the potential dope we’re going to be exposed to, Baileys Brown and Bewbonik dropped a little non-album exclusive yesterday, featuring Split Prophets member and all round Bristol badman Datkid, as well as co-production credit from Konchis. Its actually on a free download too, so cop that before they change their minds.
For those of you not familiar with the name, D£dw8 is the predictably dope collaboration between Bristol artists, Baileys Brown aka Dee Green and Blanka aka Bewbonik.
