As has now become tradition, this month sees the return of the annual High Focus Summer Block Party at, Lakota, the legendary Bristol venue.

New mixtape from Ramson Badbonez, an MC who is more than capable of taking on some of hip hop’s greatest producers and making their beats his own. This time round he is drawing on DOOM’s great legacy, specifically his Special Herbs Collection. There are six tracks to savour, all mixed and mastered by the OG Jazz T, and it’s available as a free download. You can stream it below and downloads can be found here. Read the rest of this entry »

Badbonez is back and he’s bringing with him a new album. High Focus announced the imminent arrival of Jason Bonez the other day and now we have a new video to get us all in the mood. The album draws on inspiration from Friday the 13th, so expect his lyricism to be as raw as ever. Lock Your Doors is produced by Dr Zygote and Jazz T. The album is due for release on 25 May.

Surprise release from Lee Scott, as he sneaks out Oh, The Fun We’re All Having – probably just one of 1,700 projects he’s sitting on right now.

Next month Bristol once again plays host to one of High Focus Record’s legendary parties. In the past the city has given a stage to their summer roadblocks and winter parties, but this time they will be one of two cities taking part in the label’s 8th birthday celebrations. Stepping away from their usual haunt of Lakota for this one, HF are headed to SWX in the centre of town. This means more room, better acoustics and a better sound system, which equals a better night for all involved. Read the rest of this entry »

Jazz T is a bit of a living legend on the UK scene and also, to my mind, one of the hardest working DJs on the circuit. He has been responsible for some excellent production over his lengthy career as well, and now he is back with a couple of fresh joints, alongside Blah’s own cult leader, Lee Scott.
