Bit of a special release here, as Farma G – aka Farma Beats – unites with his son, Remus, for Est. 92. Having Task Force blood in your veins from the off was pretty much a guarantee that you were going to be a killer on the mic and that is exactly how Remus developed over the years. He’s shelled down appearances on SBTV, as well as highly notable guest features for the likes of Ocean Wisdom. Now he enters that rare breed of inter-generational collaboration and the result is pretty special. Five tracks with vocals by both Farma & Son, as well as full production from Farma throughout. A pleasure to see this happen and an additional pleasure to hear it work so well. You can stream the EP below and downloads are available via Bandcamp.

Farma Beats – aka Farma G – has an album dropping at the end of the month. It features a great list of guest spots from MCs on both sides of the Atlantic, including Jalal Salaam, Flashius Clayton, Dirty Dike, Skuff and Lee Scott. This week Farma gave us a little sample of what to expect from the project, as he released the excellently titled, Farage Is A Loser, featuring Kashmere. The Iguana Man is one of the best MCs for taking amusing shots at shitty politicians and fascists, as he demonstrates in this little joint. You can stream the track below and you can cop a download over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Farma Beats x Kashmere: Farage Is A Loser”
One of Scotland’s most adept MCs kicks off the year with a mixtape packed full of unreleased joints and jams from 2015-2017. Physiks has worked with a whole load of great artists over the years, so the names on the project include the likes of Datkid, Farma G, Pete Cannon and Dirty Dike, plus a load of solo cuts, which provide a good look at his work behind the boards as well. You can stream Wanderlust below and check out his Soundcloud page for more info on the tracklist. Continue reading “Physiks: Wanderlust”
Tight little track from Nowaah the Flood, Lisaan’Dro and Flashius Clayton, as they come together on the latest collaboration from Farma Beats (aka Farma G). There are a lot of names to keep an eye on in 2018 and these three easily make the list. You can stream Third Rails & Trailblazers below.

A little menacing number from the Brothers McBane, which appeared out of the blue yesterday and sees Chester taking just two minutes to remind us why he is one of the nicest lyricists to come out of this country. Both him and Farma seem to have acquired a new lease of life recently, with the promise of a ton of new music scheduled for next year, both individually and as Task Force. Fuck Them! can be stream below. Continue reading “Chester P X Farmabeats: Fuck Them!”
A few weeks ago Lee Scott & Salar reunited in their original form as Antiheroes and gifted us two new singles, Godnose and Disasterpiece. Now they’re back for round two, with another double hitter in the form of Glass House and No Sleep Till Mars.
Once again Farma G is behind the boards, a place you can find him more and more these days as he racks up production credits for a whole ton of people, including the infamous Mach Hommy. Is this the sign of a new Antiheroes album on the way? Most likely. Lee is always working on about 15 projects at a time, so reckon that will be on the list. For now though enjoy these two new cuts
You wait six years for a new Antiheroes track and then two turn up at once. It was in 2011 that Lee Scott and Salar released their last project under the moniker, Antiheroes, but rumours of new material had been in my mind ever since I spoke with Lee and Salar at the end of last year. Those rumours came to fruition today, with the release of two new tracks, both of which are produced by Task Force veteran, Farma G. No word on a full length project yet, but make the most of these for now.
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.
The end of last month saw the release of the new Three Headed Beast album, which is in my eyes their strongest release yet. It’s been a few years and a few projects since the trio first put out a record together and the work they have put in since then has definitely not gone unnnoticed by both listeners and critics. Continue reading “Three Headed Beast: Time to Feast”
Its been a minute since I posted anything, but this should make up for my absence. The brand new video from Twizzy, the first to be lifted from his hugely anticipated album, FarmFoodz, which is produced in full by Farma G. Take Notice is a moody affair, with Twizzy delivering a strong first taste of the album, which sees its release on 28 November.
