Animated joys in the third and final video from Telemachus’s most recent opus. The superbly titled, I Am Delicious And Cute. So I Will Go Buy Again, is taken from Boring & Weird Historical Music, which still stands tall as one of the more refreshing releases of the year. The animation for the video was done by Ugly Duck Studios. The album is out now on High Focus.
Brand new track from Verbz and Mr Slipz, as they continue to celebrate their new union with High Focus. For My Peeps is a song for all those absent friends who cannot be with us for whatever reason and it is dedicated to Joey Deez of Village Live, who sadly passed away last week. He will be missed by many. The video was made by the LOUDHOUSE gang.
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.
A burst of hope and positivity here from The Four Owls, as they continue to deliver the gems from their latest album. Soulful boom bap and four accomplished rappers; what more do you want? Be Free is taken from Nocturnal Instinct, which is out now on High Focus. The video was made by This & That Media.
More heat from Coops as he returns with his latest single, Bring The Fire. Once again, it’s Talos on the beat, resulting in the usual blend of jazzy brilliance and solid rhymes. The video was made by Craig Capone. Bring The Fire is also available to stream and download at the usual places.
New single here from Coops, as he reunites with Talos for Laws Of Nature. It’s rare those two put a foot wrong when they work together and Laws Of Nature is no exception, ably backed up with another tight video from Craig Capone, whose kaleidoscopic visual is reminiscent of some earlier classics. The single is also available to stream on all the usual platforms.
Telemachus released his new album on Friday and to coincide with the drop, he also put out the next video from the project. This time round he has brought in Killa P, who brings his inimitable presence to the raw drum sounds on the production, before we reach the final leg which erupts into a very welcome flourish of drum & bass. The video was made by Cretan Brake. Boring & Weird Historical Music is out now on High Focus.
High Focus recently announced that they had further boosted their roster with the addition of Verbz and Mr Slipz. The London-Brighton duo released a superb album together back in 2018, filled with tasty jazz breaks and stellar penmanship, and this latest single is carrying on the same tradition. It also comes alongside a typically slick video from LOUDHOUSE. No news on the album yet, but stay tuned. Streams of Iron Grip are available at the usual spots.
Another big track from The Four Owls and their third album, which saw its release last month. The album is home to a lot of notable features from America’s selection of heavyweight lyricists, as you can see from this latest single which features underground favourite, R.A. The Rugged Man. A slight switch up on the production too, as Leaf Dog knocks up a pacier beat for the proceedings, leading to some incredible flows from the assembled MCs. The retro arcade game style video was created by The Astroknight. Nocturnal Instinct is out now on High Focus.
I forgot to post this when it dropped a couple of weeks ago, but always better late than never. You might remember that Mr Key released a follow-up to Kids Story not long ago, featuring joint production from Dike and Chemo. Well now the Contact Play MC has returned with a live version, performed from his base camp in Granada, Spain. As you will see in the footage, Key is ably assisted by Katryna Abel on keys and backing vocals, and Eliot Rivv on guitar. Mr Key and Greenwood Sharps’ latest project is out now on High Focus.
