Having got our hunger pangs raging with a couple of leaked tracks, last Friday saw the release of the full album from Scran Cartel aka MNSR Frites and Benny Diction. As well as their own ample skills, the two MCs have also drafted in a wealth of talent to assist with the album, including features from Oliver Sudden, Tony Skank and Juga-Naut, as well as production credits from the likes of Krang, Chemo and Morriarchi. The album is available to stream in full below and downloads are available on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

Pleased to see the arrival of the new album from Nottingham favourite, Juga-Naut. The Purple Door is produced in its entirety by SonnyJim, which in itself is a testament to Jugz’s popularity amongst fans and peers alike, as Sonny has been pretty vocal in the past about how few UK Mcs he holds in high regard. The album weighs in at 12 tracks and there are features from fellow VVV members, Vandal Savage and Cappo. You can stream the album below and physicals are available via EatGood Records.

It’s Friday, the sun is shining, Trump is getting the British welcome he deserves and we can finally indulge ourselves in the debut album from Children of Zeus. It has been a very long time coming and any regular visitors to my blog will know the work that the Manchester duo have put in over the years to get to this point. Weighing in at 13 tracks, Travel Light is everything I was anticipating. The MCR family vibe is as strong as ever, with guest spots from LayFullStop, [KSR], Metrodome and DRS, plus further production credits from Juga-Naut, Sebb Bash and Beat Butcha. Their trademark hip hop-soul sound is the most prevalent on the album, but there are elements of reggae and jazz at work too, making Travel Light a highly ambitious album, but one that works incredibly well. You can stream it in full below, with downloads and physicals available via Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s been a long time coming, but we are now into the final few weeks before the arrival of the debut album from Children of Zeus. “Highly anticipated” doesn’t even cut it. Yesterday saw the unveiling of the artwork, the tracklist and the chance to pre-order what is undoubtedly going to be one of the most popular releases of the year.
It’s also a release that is going to be the much deserved payoff for the many years that both Konny and Tyler have dedicated to their respective fields, so much so that their fans are as happy as their own kinfolk to see the duo getting so much shine.
Travel Light promises to deliver more of the street soul flavour that has proved so popular since Children of Zeus first formed, as well as some reggae and jazz cuts thrown into the mix. There are features too from LayFullStop, [KSR], DRS and Terri Walker, plus production from Sebb Bash, Juga-Naut and Beat Butcha. The album is available to pre-order now on all formats and you can stream a couple of the tracks below. The official release date is set for 13 July on First Word Records.

Was hyped to see this drop into my timeline last night. Apollo Brown is the first producer to be involved with a new series of releases in conjunction with Sydney-based label, Low Key Source. Across the Globe is going to see well-known producers collaborate with MCs and other vocalists from all over the world, including this gem featuring VVV’s finest. There is also a track featuring Jehst and Tyler Daley, which sounds like it will be worth our attention. You can stream Time’s Different below and pre-orders for the EP are available now.

Bar for bar there aren’t too many MCs in the UK on the same level as Juga-Naut right now. The Notts rapper recently continued his run of dope releases with a new project, Found Objects: Stolen Art EP PT.II. Acrylic & Oil is the latest track from the project to be given the video treatment and is produced by Juga-Naut. The EP is available to buy now over on Bandcamp.

Check out the latest video from one of last year’s UK rap high points, as VVV unleash a fresh visual for Polo Zeus. Superbly retro feel to this one too, complete with a nod to Teletext, which is all the more welcome for an 80’s kid like me. Cappo, Juga-Naut and Vandal Savage are all formidable MCs in their own right, but something extra is added when they all get together on a track. Bozo Boyz is available to purchase now over on Bandcamp.

Fresh music from the Nottingham rap talent, in the form of his latest EP. Found Objects: Stolen Art EP PT​.​II is a collection of nine tracks which serve as a good insight into Juga-Naut and the music that helped him grow. Three tracks are produced by the man himself, with the remainder coming from various musical gods along the way. You can stream the full EP below, with downloads & physicals available here.

VVV – Cappo, Juga-Naut, Vandal Savage – released their Bozo Boyz album a few weeks ago and it’s as accomplished and enjoyable as you would expect. A solid 17 tracks from the Nottingham trio, with enough quality drums, synths and effortless gold standard lyricism to warrant this ending up on some Best of 2017 lists. You can stream the album below and you can purchase it over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »
