A very welcome return to the blog from Lunar C, as he kicks of a new week with a brand new track. On Very Important, the Bradford MC outlines just how important he is compared to the rest of us mere mortals, over some stunning production from Jehst and Pitch 92. For a man who is already renowned for his highly skilled wordplay, Lunar seems to be getting even better which means his new album should push him ever higher into the UK rap stratosphere. The video was made by Killmoney and keep an eye out for a couple of cheeky cameos.

Joe Armon-Jones recently gave life to his second solo release, in which he showcases his multiple disciplines alongside a bevy of talent including Georgia Anne Muldrow and Obongjayar, as well as frequent collaborators, Nubya Garcia and Oscar Jerome. The project draws on a number of influences outside of jazz, with hip hop, RnB and funk all finding their way into the mix. The Leo & Aquarius, which you can listen to above, sees the Ezra Collective founding member teaming up with YNR Records head and UKHH stalwart, Jehst. Turn to Clear View is out now on Brownswood Recordings.

As you may have noticed if you follow me on socials, the forthcoming album from Pitch 92 has a ridiculously strong list of guest features. Not only that but the various combinations of MCs and vocalists that he’s chosen for each track are all pretty special.
The first single had MysDiggi, Verb T and Kashmere united on the same beat and for the latest video, we’ve got another killer combo. Kingdom sees UK vet, Jehst, teamed up with two Manchester favourites – Sparkz and LayFullStop. The whole thing is tied up with a nifty video from Jay Bannister.
Third Culture is set for release on 28 February on High Focus.

Good to see the release of a new video from Billy Green is Dead, Jehst’s most recent album. This time round it’s the self-produced Billy Green’s Theme, which features another great animated accompaniment from Monsta Animation. Jehst embarks on his UK tour this week, alongside Confucius MC and Pitch 92, as well as a live band. They kick off in Bristol tomorrow night. Billy Green is Dead is out now on YNR Productions.

In a great end to a shit week, today sees the release of the new album from Hock Tu Down – aka Lee Scott and Reklews. The Blah OGs originally formed the duo back in 2009, when they released their Prozium Peddlin album, followed the year after by Something Strange. Both those projects proved popular and with good reason, as the duo’s brand of self-proclaimed paranoid druggy rap came with a chemistry that just made the music enjoyable – as with pretty much everything Blah puts out.

The donny Jehst recently passed through Reform Radio HQ to bless the dLo show with some typically top notch bars. He’s about to hit the road with his live band, as well as Confucius MC and Pitch 92, so keep an eye out for them in a city near you shortly.

Excellent new video from Pitch 92, as he celebrates the release of his debut EP on High Focus. Lost in Space is the title track and features some killer verses from Jehst and Confucius MC. The video was made by AboveGround. The Lost in Space EP is available now on all the usual platforms.

Brand new video from last year’s The Artform EP, the joint project from Confucius MC and Mr Brown. The Art-Form Pt. 2 also features Confucius’s long-term collaborator and tour partner, Jehst. Downloads are available now via We Stay True and there are still copies of the EP available on vinyl.

Striking visuals from Jehst as he brings us the latest video from his Billy Green is Dead LP. Smoke Screen is one of more the soulful tracks from the album, thanks in part to the vocal contributions of the enigmatic yet familiar, Ennio Lion. Mr Thing is also on hand for the cuts. The track was co-produced by Jehst and Beat Butcha. The clown action comes courtesy of Mimbo and the video was made in association with Paragon Pictures. Billy Green is Dead is out now on YNR Productions.

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 »
