Eric the Red is about to hit us with a new album and this week saw the release of the first video. Analogy is produced by Illinformed, who is providing all the beats on the project. Caught Red Handed is due out on Lost Scroll Records on 24 April, with features from Datkid, Leaf Dog, Bill Shakes, Paro and DJ Merk. Pre-orders are available 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).

New music from the RLD camp as Eric the Red drops off his latest single. Who’s That Kid is produced by Illinformed. Downloads are available here.

I had to write ‘everyone’ cos I literally cannot fit all the MCs names into the title. 20 rappers, eight bars a piece. Safe to say this is a monumental track from Leaf Dog, as he continues to build on the intrigue for his forthcoming album, Dyslexic Disciple. Phi Life Cypher, Smellington Piff, BVA, Cracker Jon, Jehst, Jack Jetson, Dirty Dike, Verb T, Sonnyjim, Mysdiggi, Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Bill Shakes, Eric The Red, King Kashmere, Remus, Task Force and DJ Sammy B-Side providing the cuts. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

Creatures of Habit dropped their debut album the other day and it’s looking to be another solid release from the RLD lot. Sean Peng, Eric the Red and Illinformed definitely have a theme to their music, as their latest video Too Stoned makes abundantly clear. The Test Subjects LP is available to buy now.

Check the new video from Creatures of Habit, aka Sean Peng, Eric the Red and Illinformed. The Vices is the next track to be lifted from their debut LP, Test Subject, which is due out on 11 October on RLD Records.

A couple of weeks ago the High Focus squad rolled into Bristol en masse, for what looked set to be a day of good vibes, good people and good BBQ. Taking over the legendary Lakota club for a seven hour rampage, the bill boasted a weighty line-up including Dabbla, Ocean Wisdom, Fliptrix and Dirty Dike.

The name might not be familiar, but the members will be, as Sean Peng, Eric the Red and Illinformed join forces to form Creatures of Habit. Let Yourself Breathe is just the first sample from the trio, with an album called Test Subject on the way next month. You can cop your pre-orders from RLD now.

The latest leak from Cracker Jon & 2Late’s album found the light of day this week, in the form of The Funk Off. As the name suggests, 2Late drops a funky beat for Cracker & a host of equally pitched MCs, along with Dubbul O, to murder. Nice use of Malice in Wonderland in the visuals too. The album, You Can Take the Cracker Out of Croydon, is out tomorrow and my review will be up within next couple of days.
