Fresh out today is the latest release from UK production duo, Ill Move Sporadic, as they return from their hiatus with a follow-up to their 2013 Drug Corpse album. This time round Ben81 and One Boss have enlisted the help of more UK rap talent, including Ash the Author, Gee Bag, Strange Neighbour, Tenchoo and a welcome return from their old friend and collaborator, Joey Menza. Production-wise, you might already know the M.O. – hard, gritty sample-driven beats with basslines the register on the Richter Scale. It’s a fantastic follow-up and also a solid album in its own right, from two producers who have established and consistently nailed a trademark sound. Drug Corpse II can be heard in full below and there are downloads on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Ill Move Sporadic: Drug Corpse II (Stream)”
Pleased to see two of my favourite collaborators reunited for a new single, as production duo Ill Move Sporadic (IMS) join forces with their old lyrical crack peddler, Joey Menza for The Wake.
The track is lifted from IMS’s upcoming project, Drug Corpse 2, a follow on from 2013’s first instalment, on which Menza was a major player.
More news on the full release coming soon, but for now you can stream/download The Wake from Bandcamp.
The new Ill Move Sporadic and Big Toast album is nearly upon us, but to keep the misanthropy at the required levels in the meantime, they have released another track from the project. This time it’s Unspecial, featuring IMS’s regular sparring partner, Joey Menza. The album, You’re Not Special, is released on 28 August on Starch Records. Pre-orders are available here. You can also read my interview with the three of them here. Continue reading “Ill Move Sporadic & Big Toast ft. Joey Menza: Unspecial”
