As Fliptrix gears up to release his latest album, he has treated us to another new video. New Breath is produced by Chemo and the video was made by Potent Funk favourites, Spin City Visuals. INEXHALE is due out on High Focus on 24 August.


As we move closer towards Fliptrix’s album release date, the High Focus MD treats us to another taster from the project. Bagging Up Music sees Fliptrix connecting with the mighty Chemo, as well as This & That Media on video duties. The INEXHALE album is due out on High Focus on 24 August.

It was announced recently that High Focus head honcho, Fliptrix, is returning with a new album, following on from 2016’s Patterns of Escapism. It’s Like That is the first offering from the new project and sees Fliptrix team up with Birmingham-based producer, Joe Corfield, as well as Aboveground on video duties. The single is available to download/stream now and stay tuned for more info on the INEXHALE LP coming soon.

High Focus’s newest recruit has finally blessed us with his debut album on the label, No Brainer. The album has been well received, which makes sense given the strength of the lead singles, including the latest one, Pass The Mic. The track features North London MC, Rexx, as well as label mates, Fliptrix and Leaf Dog, with Talos once again handling the production. No Brainer is available now from the High Focus store.

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).

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.


Tomorrow sees the arrival of arguably one of the most anticipated albums of recent times, as Strange U release their debut LP on High Focus. For the past few years Kashmere & Dr Zygote have been making brilliantly weird and unique rap, building up something of a cult following in the process. The two are no strangers to the scene, thanks to years of solo work behind the mic for Kashmere and behind the boards for Zygote, but Strange U seems to have given the pair a new lease of energy, resulting in some of the best music they have ever made.

The videos keep coming from the latest Fliptrix album, with That’s You being the most recent addition. It features his masked collaborators, The Four Owls, as well as another solid beat from Illinformed. The album is available now from all the usual spots.

New video from Fliptrix, the next to be taken from his latest album, Patterns of Escapism. As with the rest of the album, Astral Plaining is produced by Illinformed. You can buy the LP now over at the High Focus store.

Brand new video from the High Focus head honcho as he continues dropping gems from his latest album. Once again it’s Illinformed on the boards and the video was put together by Tom Jarrett & Less Effort. Patterns of Escapism is available to buy now from the usual spots.
