Datkid & Illinformed: Thick Lip / One Way Or Another

The crud is thick on this new release from Datkid, which sees him teaming up with Illinformed for a double whammy of unadulterated street stories. The mini-movie that accompanies the tracks was made by Honey JD. Fat Lip and One Way or Another are both available now via High Focus.

Strange U: Arm Leg

More new music from Strange U, as they deliver the second part of their new 7″. Arm Leg follows on from Maybe, which surfaced earlier this month, and combines the same murky production and bursts of vocal distortion that have elevated them to become one of High Focus’s most popular acts. And quite right too, as they are formed from the combined force of two established UKHH veterans – King Kashmere and Dr Zygote. The 7″ vinyl is available to pre-order now and features artwork from that mischievous collage maker, Matt Littler.

Strange U: Maybe

A very welcome return from Strange U, with the arrival of a brand new video which surfaced last week. On Maybe we find the dynamic duo questioning everything, as King Kashmere delivers his doubts over some fresh Zygote production. The track is taken from a forthcoming 7″ release, which is due shortly on High Focus. Pre-orders are available now.

Verbz & Mr Slipz ft. Confucius MC & Coops: Decline Of Self

The latest album from Verbz and Mr Slipz was finally given life last week, and to coincide with the release the duo decided to bless us with another video from the project as well. Decline of Self is just one of the more thought provoking tracks on the album, strengthened by a couple of tight features from Confucius MC and Coops. The video was made by Honey JD. Radio Waves is out now via High Focus.

Verb T & Illinformed ft. Chillman: City Limits

Today saw the release of the latest single from Verb T and Illinformed, as they continue the rollout for their forthcoming album. City Limits features fellow In The Balance artist, Chillman, as well as another slick video from Parallel Media. The Land of the Foggy Skies is due for release on 11 December via High Focus.

Verbz & Mr Slipz ft. Fliptrix: My Wonders

Another new dose of visual bliss from Verbz & Mr Slipz, as the hype for their forthcoming album continues to build. My Wonders also features fellow label-mate, Fliptrix, as well as video from Parallel Media, which uses a colour palette that Outkast would be proud of. The album, Radio Waves, is due for release on 13 November via High Focus.

Verb T & Illinformed: Nothing Is New

Brand new video from Verb T and Illinformed, as they continue to build the anticipation for their latest collaboration. Nothing Is New was filmed on location in Bristol and features a bunch of cameos from some familiar faces (including me). The track is taken from their forthcoming album, The Land of the Foggy Skies, which is due for release on 11 December via High Focus.

Verbz & Mr Slipz: The Feeling

Verbz and Mr Slipz keep the hype building for their new album, with the release of their latest single. The Feeling is more of that straight up boom bap brilliance we have come to expect from the duo, accompanied by a typically slick video from Parallel Media. The album, Radio Waves, is due for release on 13 November via High Focus.

Fliptrix: Multicolour

Fliptrix is setting the stage for his forthcoming album, including two singles from the project which have already been given life. Now the High Focus CEO is back with the next chapter and this time it’s a local collab, as he brings in DEDW8 for the production. It’s a smart move, as it gives an edge that was lacking from the previous two offerings. More of this please. The album, Light Work, is available for pre-order now. The video was made by This & That Media.
