An unsurprisingly strong debut from a long established entity here, as Chunky releases his Somebody’s Child LP. Following on from years of association with the likes of LEVELZ, Swamp81 and Zed Bias, the Manchester artist comes into his own with a strong album that successfully blends rap with the surrounding subcultures and genres that Chunky has long inhabited. You can get a feel for Somebody’s Child below, with downloads available on Bandcamp.Continue reading “Chunky: Somebody’s Child (Stream)”
New music from PENGSHUi as they continue to ramp up the levels while we await the release of their second album. The video for IDKWYBT was made by Luke Glover and features plenty of cameos from some familiar faces. Their new album, Destroy Yourself, is out on 28 January.
PENGSHUI ft. P Money: Break the Law
More mayhem from PENGSHUI, this time with added ferocity thanks to a killer feature from P Money. The video was made by Tarnish Vision.
PENGSHUi: Little Brother
The mighty PENGSHUi returned to the fore last night, with the release of their latest single. Little Brother is proof positive that the trio are still as raw as ever, while also reminding us that they are among the most inventive and energised performers in the country. You can check out the video above, with streams and downloads available from the usual spots.
Snowy x Sumgii: Impulse
New heat from the Potent Funk family, as Snowy makes his official debut on the label with a tight Sumgii produced track. It’s the first of two singles, which are going to be available on limited edition 10″ AA vinyl. Check Bandcamp for order details, but be quick as there were only eight copies left at the time of writing this.
Slowie & $H The Producer ft. Komposa: Signs
Heavyweight banger here from new Bristol label Dee Oh 7, as they continue to showcase the city’s musical talents. Signs is a collaboration between D07 co-owners, Slowie and $H The Producer, as well as a suitably hard feature from fellow local, Komposa. The video was made by Blue Hat Visuals. Stand by for a lot more music en route from this lot.
PAV4N x SUKH KNIGHT ft. Ishani: DOOM
More riotous visuals from PAV4N, as he continues to make waves as his latest musical incarnation. On DOOM, the former Foreign Beggars frontman has teamed up with Sukh Knight to create this grimy behemoth of a track, which looms out of the shadows with a grin that sits somewhere between killer and comrade. The track is out now on 4NC¥. Stay tuned for more madness from PAV4N coming soon.
Telemachus ft. Killa P: Wickedest Ting (Sumgii Remix)
Huge remix here from Sumgii, as he takes on the already formidable Telemachus track, Wickedest Ting, which is lifted from the producer’s most recent album. The track also features a typically powerful appearance from Killa P. The original track can be found on Boring & Weird Historical Music, which is out now on High Focus. The remix is also available to stream/download from the usual spots.
Opus x DEDW8: Indigo
New cut from the Potent Funk camp, as Bristol duo, DEDW8, team up with London production force, OPUS, for this grimy banger. The video was made by Max Kelan Pearce Productions. Indigo is available now from all the usual spots.
slowthai & Kenny Beats: MAGIC
A fresh track from slowthai here as he capitalises on his recent trip to the US with a tasty Kenny Beats collaboration. Having already teased us with a snippet of the track last month on Instagram, now they have hit us with the full thing. And you’ll be pleased to hear it works well, with Kenny moving his production towards something more slowthai’s style, as opposed to the other way round, which might have ended up sounding very different and maybe would have fallen short. But MAGIC works well and makes me curious to know if they’ve got more coming. I guess we shall see. MAGIC is also available on streaming platforms.
