More fire on this already scorching day, thanks to the new track from one of my favourite Bristol producers, DROG Beats, as he delivers the outrageously filthy, DROP. You might remember talking up DROG before, because he was the guy behind some of Buggsy’s most memorable beats and he made most of them when he was only 15. Talent for real. Streams of DROP are also available.
The new album from Sylla B was released on Friday and marks a honing of skills for the Bristol-based MC. His last few releases have all demonstrated a growth in confidence and penmanship, leaving The Walls Have Eyes feeling like the culmination of all that progress. Straight up grime bangers sit next to more thought-provoking tracks, with the variety of styles strengthened by Sylla’s production choices. There are beats from Oozhe, xeno, DROG Beats, Moody Lew, Just Sayin, Yung Toro and sam.makes.beats, along with features from Toro, Gabriel Waves, Moody Lew and Solo Jane. This is a very strong release from an MC whose talent refuses to let him go unnoticed and one who’s only going to keep getting better. You can stream the album in full below and downloads are available from Bandcamp.
At the end of this month, Sylla B is set to release his album. Following his rise over the last couple of years, which included a string of excellent releases, Sylla is now poised to cement his place on the scene with a full-length solo project. The Walls Have Eyes features production from a number of different sources, including DROG Beats, Oozhe and Moody Lew, as well as features from the likes of Yung Toro and Gabriel Waves. Three tracks are ready to stream now, which you can find below, and pre-orders can be made via Bandcamp.
Bristol in full effect on this brand new track from rising producer, DROG Beats, as he brings in two generations of local MCs. Any regular visitors to my blog will already know about Sylla B and his rise over the last couple of years, thanks to his often devastating flows. He is joined on the track by Bristol double-time OG and all-round lyrical monster, Buggsy. As you can imagine the final product is pretty special and highlights Bristol’s lengthy history of producing great lyricists. Enemies is also available to stream on all the usual platforms.
