Ded Tebiase & Ash The Author: APEX (Stream)

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.

Mr Murphy is the second single taken from the upcoming album from Ded Tebiase and Ash The Author.

The album, Apex, goes on pre-order tonight at 7pm (UK time) via Village Live.

Ric Branson: The Technician (Stream)

Another solid release from Ric Branson (fka Ricochet), as he delivers his new album, The Technician. Building on the foundations he laid back in the early 00’s alongside Ultra and A.H.Fly, the UK veteran displays all the signs of a still hungry MC across these 16 tracks.
He’s in good company too, as he’s joined on the album by Melanin 9, Ray Vendetta, Cons and Tesla’s Ghost, plus some tight production contributions from A.H.Fly, Evil Ed, Cons, Juice and Giallo Point. Also keep an ear out for the follow up to Ric’s classic cut from back in the day, Mad Runningz. The Technician is available to stream below and you can find downloads over on Bandcamp.

Benaddict, Slim & Ella Mae: Teal

More gold on the way from the Village, as Benaddict, Ella Mae and Slim unite their ample talents for Teal. The pre-orders went live last night and considering how popular all Village Live’s other releases have been, you would be wise to make your move soon.
Benaddict and Ella already worked together on The Garden of England, so I can vouch for their chemistry on a track. Along with the addition of Slim’s relaxed yet intricate production, Teal looks set to be another must have. There is a little preview mix from Evil Ed, which you can stream below and then head over to the Village Live store to get your orders in. The official release date is 28 August.
