An old interview I did with Jehst back in 2007, making it one of the first interviews I ever did. It’s quite good though, the cringing moments are minimal. I thought it was gone for good, but found a random cache of stuff archived online. It was originally on the now defunct site, style43.com I should have a more up to date one with him coming this year, so stay tuned for that. Shouts to YNR. Read the rest of this entry »

That Sound is the latest track to be lifted from the recent Verb T & Pitch 92 album, Good Evening. When it was announced that the two of them were making an album together, I thought back to their collaborations on the last Mouse Outfit album and knew that the likelihood was that they were going to create something brilliant. Good Evening is just that.
The Man With the Foggy Eyes is one of Verb T’s strongest releases and that was the result of him working with just one producer, so I had high hopes for his collaboration with Pitch and even they were surpassed. Read the rest of this entry »

Here is the latest video from the new Jehst album, Billy Green is Dead. So Far To Go is produced by Paul White and the video was made by Joe Gavin. The LP is out now on YNR Productions.

Sticking with the theme of welcome returns, Jehst also makes his comeback this month, following a string of features over the past few years and his recent UK tour.
Arguably one of the most influential artists to ever emerge from these shores, The High Plains Drifter has given us the first leak from the album, in the form of 44th Floor. Read the rest of this entry »

This is an old interview me and a friend did back in 2008. I thought it had been lost forever, as the site we did it for is no longer around. Then I stumbled across an archived copy online yesterday, so thought I would share it. It was the first face to face interview I had ever done and I was nervous as fuck. It took place at the The Social in London in 2008, at a listening party for Atmosphere’s forthcoming album at the time, When Life Gives You Lemons. Read the rest of this entry »

I had to write ‘everyone’ cos I literally cannot fit all the MCs names into the title. 20 rappers, eight bars a piece. Safe to say this is a monumental track from Leaf Dog, as he continues to build on the intrigue for his forthcoming album, Dyslexic Disciple. Phi Life Cypher, Smellington Piff, BVA, Cracker Jon, Jehst, Jack Jetson, Dirty Dike, Verb T, Sonnyjim, Mysdiggi, Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Bill Shakes, Eric The Red, King Kashmere, Remus, Task Force and DJ Sammy B-Side providing the cuts. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

Tomorrow sees the arrival of arguably one of the most anticipated albums of recent times, as Strange U release their debut LP on High Focus. For the past few years Kashmere & Dr Zygote have been making brilliantly weird and unique rap, building up something of a cult following in the process. The two are no strangers to the scene, thanks to years of solo work behind the mic for Kashmere and behind the boards for Zygote, but Strange U seems to have given the pair a new lease of energy, resulting in some of the best music they have ever made.

This tasty little mix from Nottingham’s finest arrived online yesterday. Released to coincide with the Chinese New Year celebrations, Fortune Cookies features some stone cold classics from the Spaz the World days, all the way up to last year’s A Dramatic Change of Fortune LP. There are also a few exclusives on there, including a joint with YNR head honcho, Jehst.
It’s all mixed by Jazz T so the levels are high and all this is avilable for free download. You can stream the mix above and you can get your free download over at the YNR Bandcamp.

The second song from Jehst and Lee Scott in as many weeks, this time joined by the odd couple Strange U, for Reel It In. The track was procuced by Jehst & Mo Kolours and there is going to be a limited edition 7″ available for Record Store Day on 16 April.

They promised us a banger and they did not disappoint. Jehst, Lee Scott and Morriarchi team up to bring that raw, unadulterated rap nourishment in the form of Campbell & Algar. Taken from Morriarchi’s upcoming LP, Buggzville, the single is available to buy now over at Bandcamp.
