Another visual treat from Juga-Naut and Giallo Point, as they create a mini movie for Rock Paper Scissors. The track is featured on their triumphant new album, Back To The Grill Again, which is out now on all the usual platforms, with vinyl available via Tuff Kong Records. The video was made by Derry Shillitto.

Cracking animated video from Juga-Naut and Giallo Point, as they continue to drop gems from their new album. Concept Song features some breathtaking visuals from Theorist, upping the levels on the current theme of animated videos surfacing on the UK scene. Back to the Grill Again is out now, including a vinyl edition on Tuff Kong Records.

Another incredible album is released into the world today, as Juga-Naut and Giallo Point drop the rightly anticipated, Back To The Grill Again. Both artists have steadily climbed the ranks of recognition over the past few years and are now viewed by many as two of best in the UK. The argument for that recognition is very strong on this new album, with Jugz’s lyrical prowess seemingly more attuned than ever and Giallo providing the perfect accompaniment for him with each beat. It’s definitely one to satisfy the older generation, as you can guess from the opening lines of the blurb – “This album is best listened to on MiniDisc in Nottingham, wearing Air Max Uptempo’s while going to watch Space Jam the day it dropped at the Odeon 1997” – but I can see it easily enticing fresher faced fans too, thanks to the production values and the often luxurious lyrical content. Fine list of features too, with Milano Constantine, Scorzayzee, SmooVth, Napoleon Da Legend, Vandal Savage, and SonnyJim all on the assist. There are various physical and merch deals available over on Bandcamp and you can hear the album in full below. Read the rest of this entry »

Very happy to finally be able to bring you the new Baileys Brown solo LP in all its genre-defying glory. If you’re already familiar with Baileys Brown’s work, you will know he is a producer who is not afraid to venture outside the normal constraints of a genre and draw on musical influences from other areas, to create unique soundscapes which are among some of the most ambitious in the UK right now. When he found a home at Potent Funk it seemed like the ideal setting for his exploits, thanks to their already established love of ‘hybrid rap shit’ and with that in mind, Still Fresh serves as the perfect label debut.

Strong start to the week, as Juga-Naut and Giallo Point hit us with the lead single from their upcoming album. Back To The Grill Again promises to be another win for both Jugz and Giallo, a pair of artists who have spent the last few years steadily building up reputations as two of the best in their respective fields. The video for The Passion was made by Guy Jenkins. The album is due for release on 7 August.

Following on from their previous collaboration, Juga-Naut and his dad – aka Stickman – return with the next instalment of their Cellar Sessions series. The original version of this verse can be found on the Bozo Boyz album by VVV.

Kicking off the week on a family tip, with some new material from Juga-Naut. For those who might be unaware, Jugz’s pops is a very accomplished drummer and the two of them have been known to put together some excellent collaborations in the past, which is exactly what we’ve got here. Going by the fact this is Cellar Sessions 1, I’m hoping we’re going to get a lot more clips like this. Keep your eyes peeled.

Pleased to see the arrival of Juga-Naut’s latest solo album, Bon Vivant. It rounds off another strong year for the Nottingham artist, following on from a string of solid collaborations, including his Purple Door project with SonnyJim, as well as his own Found Objects release back in February. Bon Vivant sees Jugz summoning the collective strength of a number of UK luminaries to assist with the project, including Joe Buhdha, Micall Parknsun and his fellow VVV brothers, Cappo and Vandal Savage. You can stream the album below and there are physicals/merch available via Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »
