It was already in the mid-20’s when I rolled down to this year’s High Focus Block Party in Bristol and it was only going to get hotter, given the days running up to the event. Last year’s party had been a smash and this year looked set to at least rival it, if not surpass it. Doors opened at 2pm so I got down there at about 3pm and already had to deal with the huge queue that had formed; a teeming mass of the new generation of UK hip hop fans all fully loyal to the HF brand (and all of whom I’m pretty sure I was old enough to be their dad).

Check out the next track from Leaf Dog’s new album to be given the video treatment. The Reminder features fellow Four Owls member, BVA, as well as verse from the Ultramagnetic OG himself, Kool Keith. Dyslexic Disciple is out now on High Focus.

Yet another new video from the recently released Leaf Dog album. This time it’s Window, which is produced by Illinformed. Dyslexic Disciple is out now on High Focus.

The next video from Leaf Dog’s new album made its debut yesterday. Glass Eye is produced by Illinformed. The album, Dyslexic Disciple, is out now on High Focus.

I had to write ‘everyone’ cos I literally cannot fit all the MCs names into the title. 20 rappers, eight bars a piece. Safe to say this is a monumental track from Leaf Dog, as he continues to build on the intrigue for his forthcoming album, Dyslexic Disciple. Phi Life Cypher, Smellington Piff, BVA, Cracker Jon, Jehst, Jack Jetson, Dirty Dike, Verb T, Sonnyjim, Mysdiggi, Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Bill Shakes, Eric The Red, King Kashmere, Remus, Task Force and DJ Sammy B-Side providing the cuts. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

Leaf Dog’s highly anticipated album is due out next month and yesterday brought us another taste of what’s in store. Today is produced by Leaf and the video was shot by Ed Keeble. You can pre-order Dyslexic Disciple over at the HF store.

There is a new Leaf Dog album on the horizon and so far we had only been treated to the intro. That was until yesterday when the first full single was released. My Scene is produced by Naive and features a wicked 8-bit style video from The Astroknight. The single is available on a limited run of 500 vinyl copies, along with the B-Side, Today. You can order them here.

The videos keep coming from the latest Fliptrix album, with That’s You being the most recent addition. It features his masked collaborators, The Four Owls, as well as another solid beat from Illinformed. The album is available now from all the usual spots.

Leaf Dog teases us with the intro from his imminent new album, Dyslexic Disciple, which is due out on High Focus some point soon. More details to follow.

A couple of weeks ago the High Focus squad rolled into Bristol en masse, for what looked set to be a day of good vibes, good people and good BBQ. Taking over the legendary Lakota club for a seven hour rampage, the bill boasted a weighty line-up including Dabbla, Ocean Wisdom, Fliptrix and Dirty Dike.
