Almost full gang in the latest video from Blah Records, as Children of the Damned release their first new music in two years. OFFIE is the first of two new tracks, which are also getting a limited 7″ vinyl release. The track features, in order, Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Barebase, Bill Shakes, King Grubb, Sly Moon and Salar, on top of some murky production from Wholesome Fun and Lee. It’s a great track, made all the more better thanks to a full verse from Barebase, which is pretty much a guaranteed improvement in any area of life. The video was made by Siim Parisoo and Lee. More info about the vinyl is available over at the Blah site.

Not content with giving us a surprise album at the end of 2019, Lee Scott then continued his gift giving with a brand new EP, which he released exclusively to Blah Cult Members on Christmas Day. The EP saw its full release on Friday, which means that us mere mortals can now savour the joys of what is another great project from arguably one of the most prolific artists of the moment. The ffsman EP is a features bonanza, with the Cult Mountain rapper teaming up with a cross-generational list of MCs, including YNR head honcho, Jehst, rising London star, CLBRKS, and new Potent Funk family member, Dream Mclean. The production credits are just as strong, with the likes of Morriarchi, dylantheinfamous, Sumgii and Sam Zircon, all bringing their respective sounds to the mix. The EP is available to stream/download now and you can also hear it in full below. Read the rest of this entry »

Yellow x Green is the latest track to be taken from the SUPERGANG project, which saw its release back in May, courtesy of Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Sniff and Sumgii. This particular track features Lee and Sniff, as they deliver an ode to the halcyon days of Jobcentre Plus and surviving on the dole. The video was made by RSLBM. SUPERGANG is out now on Blah.

I have never done an end of year list before, or at least nothing that has been published. But there have been so many strong releases this year, that it felt right to celebrate some of the music I’ve been enjoying over the last 12 months. This will be a list of my 50 favourite rap and hip hop releases from this year, including projects from both the UK and the US. They are in no order, other than the order I remembered them in, or came across them as I tried to jog my increasingly unreliable memory by scouring through my blog and Spotify history. I’ve included Bandcamp links where possible. The rest of the list will be published over the next few weeks.

Continuing with the element of surprise, today sees the release of the latest album from Lee Scott, which was recently announced unexpected. Somewhere Between Here and There is worthy of consideration for your end of year lists, with Lee on fine form both behind the mic and behind the boards. His self-produced tracks are often among the highlights of his releases and this latest project is no exception, with tracks like An Ear For Violence, lingering in your mind after they end. That particular song hears Lee recollecting two dark events from his past and is in my opinion, one of his strongest tracks to date. Features on the LP come from BeTheGun, Milkavelli, King Grubb, Obijuan and looms., plus there is production from Lee, Wholesome Fun, Dylantheinfamous, Bisk and Kiyani. You can listen to the album below and a limited edition vinyl version is available via Blah. There is also a video for the Bisk helmed, Table, which you can watch below.

All-round production don, Sumgii, has a new EP en route, on the infamous Swamp81 label. Sumgii has long been one of my favourite producers and so I thought I’d share this new playlist, featuring some of his greatest beats to date. The playlist features audible gold from the likes of Cult Mountain, Jam Baxter, Lee Scott, Milkavelli and Dabbla. There is also an instrumental version too, which you can find here. It should get you into just the right mood for the EP, which is due for release very soon. More info to follow.

Brand new video from Lee Scott and Jam Baxter, as they kick of the official release of their album, Happy Hour At The Super Fun Time Party Dome Megamix 4000. When Lee first sent me the LP a few months ago, he did so with the warning that it was weird. I like weird, was my reply. And while it might not be your run of the mill rap album, it definitely remains on the right side of weird, complete with drunk style crooning from Lee. It features production from loads of great names, including Sumgii, Drae Da Skimask, GhostTown, Dirty Dike and Jack Jetson, plus there are guest spots from the likes of Jetson, Stinkin Slumrok, Milkavelli, Trellion and Lyza Jane. The whole thing can be heard below and you can see the video for the Dike produced, Who’s Ur M8, above. It was made by Slim Parisoo. Vinyl copies of the album are available over at the Blah store.

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.
