Eva Lazarus continues to ride the much deserved success of her acclaimed solo effort with the release of a new video. The Party is Over is produced by Dirty Dike and features a suitably slick video from Turbo Shrimp. The song is just one of the jewels to be found on Brandy Kisses, which was released last year on Melonskin Records.

Jehst: Mork Calling Orson (Stream)
A pleasing return to centre stage from Jehst, with the release of his first solo album since 2017’s, Billy Green is Dead. Mork Calling Orson finds the UK rap linchpin on typically fine form, with his pen remaining as sharp as ever and his production choices setting the album’s mood without fault. Contributions from Sam Zircon, Beat Butcha, Sonnyjim, Mr Brown, Keor Meteor, Taharka and Jehst himself, provide a varied but unified sound, while Lee Scott, CW Jones, Sindysman, Eva Lazarus and Confucius MC, all prove to be the perfect co-stars. Previews of Mork Calling Orson can be heard below, with Bandcamp being the best spot to grab your downloads and physical copies.Continue reading “Jehst: Mork Calling Orson (Stream)”
Jehst ft. Confucius MC & Eva Lazarus: One Horse Town + LP News
Jehst has released a steady stream of singles since 2019, which gave the appearance of an unrelated collection of loosies. It now turns out that they were all building towards the release of his new album, which arrives six years after Billy Green is Dead. The album, Mork Calling Orson, is due for release in early February, which means there is still time for a couple more singles, including One Horse Town. The Taharka-produced track sees Jehst reuniting with long-term collaborator, Confucius MC, as well as drafting in Eva Lazarus for some soulful assistance. You can check out One Horse Town below, while Mork Calling Orson is available for pre-order now.Continue reading “Jehst ft. Confucius MC & Eva Lazarus: One Horse Town + LP News”
The Nextmen x Eva Lazarus: Rudegyal
While the weather might be teasing us with glimpses of the summer, there is most definitely a heatwave brewing in one corner of the country thanks to the latest from The Nextmen, as they team up with Eva Lazarus for Rudegyal. A veritable summer jam, thanks to the reggae roots that pervade the production and Eva’s trademark blend of vocal styles. You can watch the lyric video above, courtesy of Benny Aves and Max Palmer, plus there are streams available which also include the equally superb, Afterglow Dub.
Mungo’s Hi Fi x Eva Lazarus Ft. Kiko Bun: Light As A Feather
Next up is the final single from this year’s formidable collaboration, between legendary sound system collective, Mungo’s Hi Fi, and all-round vocal powerhouse, Eva Lazarus. Light As A Feather also features rising rudeboy star, Kiko Bun, who appears in the yellow-drenched video in puppet form. The video was made by Parallel Media, with assistance from CW Jones and Nicholas Bailey. Light As A Feather is also available to stream on all the usual platforms. Continue reading “Mungo’s Hi Fi x Eva Lazarus Ft. Kiko Bun: Light As A Feather”
Ronnie Bosh: Get Out + Album Stream
It’s a good day for hip hop, as Ronnie Bosh’s debut solo LP is finally released. Having been a major contributor to the scene for a long time, thanks to his Contact Play affiliation and the numerous features it spawned, Bosh has built up a solid fanbase who have all been crying out for a full-length project. All People Expect is the perfect answer to those cries, with Bosh’s baritone flows perfectly lacing Dike’s production; the result of years of collaborations between the two of them, including on the Dike-produced My Business by Rag’N’Bone Man.

Mungo’s Hi Fi x Eva Lazarus: More Fyah (Stream)
Almost two years on from their initial collaboration, I am very pleased to see the arrival of the full-length project from Mungo’s Hi Fi and Eva Lazarus. Back in August 2017, the Glasgow sound system ambassadors joined forces with the Bristol-based vocalist for Amsterdam. The track proved to be a hit with both critics and fans, and sparked a creative partnership that has now spawned an album that surpasses the levels set by that initial union.

Mungo’s Hi Fi x Eva Lazarus ft. Max Romeo: Babylon Raid
Eva Lazarus reunites with Glaswegian sound system veterans, Mungo’s Hi Fi, as they breathe new life into Max Romeo’s classic, Three Blind Mice. The track tells the all too familiar tale of the police shutting down a party and is the perfect vehicle for Eva’s ability to switch up her flows. Babylon Raid is the first cut to be taken from the forthcoming album, More Fyah, which is due for release next month. The video was shot on location in Kampala.
DJ Yoda: Home Cooking (Stream)
I have just spent a bit of time digesting the new album from DJ Yoda and I am happy to report that it is another win for the Cut and Paste legend. Last year we were treated to the album’s first single, London Fields, featuring Joel Culpepper, which was a very obvious yet successful departure from Yoda’s previous material. The rest of Home Cooking continues in the same vein, with production levels at such a high standard, you end up feeling like this might have been Yoda’s calling all along.

Dabbla: Death Moves (Album Stream & Video)
It’s been a long time coming, but yesterday we were finally treated to the full release of the new album from UK favourite, Dabbla. Any regular visitors to my blog will know that I have been championing the album since its coming was announced some months ago. And with good reason because the whole project is a treat for the ears, packed with a standard of lyricism and production high enough to bring the devil himself to tears.
There are plenty of stellar features too from the likes of Rag’N’Bone Man, Eva Lazarus, Illaman, LDZ and Jam Baxter, but the main star is Dabbla who seems to be at his hungriest yet on Death Moves; quite a feat for an MC who has been giving his all to every release since his debut with LDZ.
You can stream the full album below and there is also a brand new video for the title track, produced by Dirty Dike, Pete Cannon and GhostTown. The video itself was made by Obese Aesthetics – the dons behind the hugely successful Psychoville video, from Dabbla’s previous album. You can grab digital/physical copies of the album over at the Potent Funk store. Continue reading “Dabbla: Death Moves (Album Stream & Video)”
