Fans of Marlowe take note, as I bring you the new solo album from Solemn Brigham. Having deservedly earned himself plenty of props from across the board for his work alongside L’Orange, the North Carolina rapper is now treating us to an album that further highlights his mastery, while also providing some insight into the decay of his hometown, Albemarle. Some fantastic production picks along the way, thanks to contributions from The Lasso, Kuartz, Supa K and L’Orange, among others. You can explore the album below, then head to Bandcamp to grab a download.Continue reading “Solemn Brigham: South Sinner Street (Stream)”
Village Live continue their Live & Direct series with this newly polished gem from Kuartz. The Manchester producer is no stranger to the label, having already released a number of solid projects through them, and Vapour Rays carries on the same tradition. It’s also available to stream and download at the usual spots.
Kuartz returns with another jewel from his latest album, Kuartz FM. Oh Dam is drenched in good vibes and the video gives a little peek at the master at work. Kuartz FM is out now on Village Live Records.
The latest release from Village Live went on sale last night and to coincide with the drop, they put out a new video too. Kuartz was responsible for one of 2017’s instrumental gems in the form of Shurikens and now he looks set to continue the brilliance with Kuartz FM. The album is peppered with call ins and jingles, but the foundation is soul-tinged hip hop beats, as you will hear in Smile, and something the Village Live boys continue to do very well with their various releases. Kuartz FM is available to buy now.
Village Live continue their run of top notch instrumental projects, with their latest release from UK producer, Kuartz.
