After a couple of tantalising clips and videos, Verbz and Mr Slipz are ready to deliver their official High Focus debut LP. Today sees the release of the lead single from the album, with Verbz and Slipz proving exactly why their creative partnership is so much in demand. As well as the neck-snapping drum-driven production from Slipz, there are also some tasty cuts from Tom Yum and the video was made by Parallel Media. Keep an eye out for a couple of cameos too. I’ll have more news on the album soon.
Nice burst of bars from Verbz, accompanied by Mr Slipz on the MPC, as they continue to build the anticipation for their High Focus debut.
Fans of Verb T and Illinformed’s 2015 collaboration, The Man With The Foggy Eyes, will no doubt be pleased to hear that they have a new project on the way. Rotten Luck is our first taster and the duo seem to have lost none of the combined mite that made them a firm favourite after their last album was given life. The video was made by Honey JD. More news on the album soon.
Pitch 92 is back with a bang, as he unveils his latest single. It’s the first new music we have heard from the High Focus producer since the arrival of his Question of Time album, which he released alongside Verb T last year. High Focus have been recently hinting that Pitch had been busy in the lab and now the fruits of his labour are being given life, starting off with Suttin’ In The Trunk, which features a tight guest appearance from Lord Apex. No word on an album yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t least get to hear more new bits from Pitch very soon.
New music from Fliptrix, as he returns with the lead single from his forthcoming album. Powerizm is the first solo material we’ve heard from the High Focus founder since his 2018 album, INEXHALE, with the track standing as a testament to the great, POW, the legendary London graff writer who sadly passed away last year. Powerizm is produced by Yabu and the video was made by This & That Media. The track is available to stream now in all the usual places, and pre-orders for the 7″ vinyl edition are also available.
The Four Owls unveil the next single from their recently released Nocturnal Instinct LP, with yet another heavyweight US name on the assist. On Pioneer, the High Focus quartet have enlisted the might of Kool G Rap, who delivers a typically blistering verse. The track is produced by Leaf Dog. Nocturnal Instinct is out now.
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?
