Another solid project from Vic Spencer and Sonnyjim, as they reconnect to bring us the third instalment of Spencer for Higher.

Sonnyjim x Illinformed: The Chemistry Must Be Respected (Stream)

A fresh release to bless the start of your week, as Sonnyjim hits us with another new album, this time teaming up with UK boom bap aficionado, Illinformed. The Chemistry Must Be Respected sees its full release today and is comprised of the sort of luxurious monotone raps, which we’ve been accustomed to from the Brum native over the last few years, as well as that soul-laced nod-inducing production that Illinformed has down to a fine art, but with a definite Sonny flair as he joins on the assist. There is support too, with Sony hooking up a smooth verse from Hus Kingpin on Diamonds & Carrots, while Leaf Dog steps up to the plate on Golden Gates, and Jehst does a masterful turn on Zircon. The full thing can be heard below, with downloads available via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Sonnyjim x Illinformed: The Chemistry Must Be Respected (Stream)”

DJ Muggs: Dia Del Asesinato (Stream)

Was happy to see the release of the new album from DJ Muggs, following on from his recent successes with DOOM and Meyhem Lauren.

And with good reason, as Dia Del Asesinato demonstrates. The list of features is testament to the esteem Muggs is held in by the scene as well, with MCs like Raekwon, Mach-Hommy, Hus Kingpin and DOOM all bringing their A-game to the project. The album is available to stream below and you can also buy it via Soul Assassins.
