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.

New music from the rap game gift that keeps on giving, as Lee Scott surprises us with a new 10 track instrumental project. I Can’t Figure Out How I Figured It All Out is a collection of beats that Lee has put together over the last few weeks, in part because of a sore throat and in part because he is one of those artists who can’t ever stop making music. You can stream the project below and downloads are available via Lee’s Bandcamp. Continue reading “Lee Scott: I Can’t Figure Out How I Figured It All Out (Stream)”
Next up we’ve got the debut album from Lyza Jane, which follows on from a string of singles and an EP with Sniff, which was one of last year’s highlights. I find it hard to pinpoint exactly what genres Lyza’s music fits into, as there are a lot of different influences at work, but hip hop definitely plays a big part in her inspiration. Housebound features appearances from Lee Scott, Black Josh and Danny Lover, with beats from Lee, Sniff and Lyza, who handles the majority of the production herself. You can hear the album in full below, with physicals and merch available via Bandcamp. Stay tuned for an interview with Lyza coming soon. Continue reading “Lyza Jane: Housebound (Stream)”

New music from the always intriguing Nah Eeto, as she blesses us with her latest single. Mafu is produced by Lee Scott and the video was made by @therawwfilmmaker. No word on a full length from her yet, but I’m hoping something appears soon.
Today saw the release of a new video from the Mcabre Brothers. INABIT is produced by fellow Blah resident Jack Danz and the video was made by Grit Multimedia. The track is lifted from a new project – Hot Mess – from the duo which they put together on their recent tour. More news on that soon.
Start your week off the right way with the latest single from Blah vocalist, Lyza Jane. Indigo is the perfect vehicle for her soft touch vocals, thanks in part to Lee Scott’s production, who also drops in his own contribution on the mic. The single is the first single from Lyza’s upcoming Housebound album, which features a host of Blah talent including Black Josh and Danny Lover. Pre-orders are available now.

Echoes of their 2014 Uvavu project on this new track from Bill Shakes, King Grubb and Lee Scott, as they reunite for theysay. But instead of Reklews on production, this time round the beat is provided by Kiyani. No word on whether this track is part of something larger, so for now just enjoy the loosie.
