Today sees the full release of the new EP from Bristol MCs, Twizzy and Jinxsta JX and local producer, Chris Lucas. It’s a solid EP from three artists who have been immersed in the scene long enough now for anything other than the music itself to filter away, leaving six tracks of quality rap forged in the group’s collective passion for the culture. Twizzy and Jinxsta’s flows are well-matched by their differences too, which only adds to the project’s appeal. There is also a good selection of features, thanks to on-point contributions from Press1, Ambush Tactics and DJ Rogue. First Word Last is available to stream below, and there are plenty of physicals and bundles up for grabs too. Continue reading “Twizzy x Jinxsta JX x Chris Lucas: First Word Last (Stream)”
Bristol in full effect here, as Twizzy and Jinxsta introduce us to their forthcoming EP with the lead single, Salute The Cap. No strangers to the scene, or each other, Twizzy and Jinxsta have collaborated in various incarnations over the years, but this marks a return to the fore for Twizzy, who seems to have found a new lease of life on the mic. Combine this with the fact that the production is being handled in full by Chris Lucas – another of Bristol’s musical assets – we have all the ingredients for a very good project. Pre-orders for the First Word Last EP are available now, with the release set for 27 April.
New music from Ambush Tactics, as he delivers his latest album. The Roughcut Collective affiliate has handled production throughout, with the exception of one Billy Whizz helmed track. While the production is kept relatively solo, there are a wealth of features on the album from the likes of Twizzy, G00SE, Jinxsta JX and Levi Collins. Dead End Avenue can be heard below and downloads are available over on Bandcamp. The album will be available on all streaming platforms as of 28 November.
Baileys Brown keeps us hooked with another new video from his recent Still Fresh LP. Swim sees the Bristol producer teaming up with fellow SW rap aficionados and regular collaborators, Datkid, Jinxsta JX and Hozay, all rounded off with a slick video from Don Wavey. The album is out now on Potent Funk.
There are a few forthcoming releases to be excited about in 2019, but one that should be near the top of all your lists is the long-awaited solo album from Baileys Brown. He’s found himself a new label home in the form of Potent Funk, one that suits his sound exceptionally well, in my opinion. The first taste of what’s in store was delivered over Christmas, with the lead single, Horses Mouth.
The track features two of Brown’s long-term collaborators, Datkid and Jinxsta JX, as well as a video from one of Bristol’s finest, Chris Lucas. The album, Still Fresh, is coming soon with a hefty list of features from Stinkin Slumrok, Black Josh, Bil Next, Axel Holy, Juga-Naut, Wish, Vard, Ly, Jordan Nathaniel, Anbu, Hozay, Bogues, Conz and Jay0117.
A welcome return for Twizzy, as he releases his latest album, Old Dog No Tricks. It’s been a while since his last release, back in February last year, but pleased to say the Bristol MC is still as on point as ever. It’s a collaboration between Twizzy and his old friend and collaborator, Billy Whizz, with the pair having such a good chemistry that whatever they turn their collective minds to is always going to work. There are plenty of local features too, with G00SE, Sylla B, Ambush Tactics and Jinxsta JX all dropping in with nice verses. The album is available to stream below, with downloads and physicals available over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Twizzy & Billy Whizz: Old Dog No Tricks (Stream)”
Another dope release from Bristol, as Jinxsta JX drops his long-awaited solo album, Thoughts in Words.
He’s brought in a wide range of producers for the project, giving him a good range of beats to showcase his ample talents on the mic.
From the mellow sounds on tracks like Recap and Trip, to the livelier vibe on cuts like Welcome, the whole album is a gift to the ears from an MC who has taken his time to hone his craft and drop a gem on us.
His fellow 3HB MC, Twizzy, makes an appearance on Hard Work, but other than that the album is left free for Jinxsta to go to work.
You can stream the album below and downloads are available now via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Jinxsta JX: Thoughts In Words”
As if the last track wasn’t loaded enough, the blitzkrieg continues with the new one from the Durkle Disco gang. And gang is the right word as a massive 21 MCs drop eight bars a piece over a grimy beat from Unkey.
It’s only right I give them all a mention, so this is the list in the order they appear: Sirplus, Koast, Flying Monk, Scarz, Relly, Sparkerboi, Springa, Double, J Man, Prime, B’Tol, Carasel, Blunt, Dash Villz, Ceaze, Zino, Jay 0117, Redders, Kilaze, Jinxsta JX & Slowie.

The end of last month saw the release of the new Three Headed Beast album, which is in my eyes their strongest release yet. It’s been a few years and a few projects since the trio first put out a record together and the work they have put in since then has definitely not gone unnnoticed by both listeners and critics. Continue reading “Three Headed Beast: Time to Feast”
The new album from Three Headed Beast is due out next week, so this week saw them drop this new track, Control. This will be the first LP from Jinxsta JX, Twizzy and M.A.B, following on from the success of their two EPs and it looks set to be another solid release. Continue reading “Three Headed Beast ft. Javeon: Control”
