New music from Lunar C, as he compiles the loosies he’s been steadily feeding us over lockdown, into one solid mixtape. It also comes complete with some new joints to keep us tided over until his official album drops later this year. Regular collaborator, Mash, is on the buttons for the duration, which suits Lunar well from the sounds of it. Generating a similarly natural vibe to the one he finds with HashFinger every time they get together. His bars are as on point as ever too, resulting in a relaxed project that hits harder than some fully polished albums. There are also a couple of features from the usual suspects – Lefty and P Solja. You can hear snippets of Chaos Theory Vol. 1 below and you’ll have more news on his album when I’ve got it.
Lunar C & HashFinger: Pink Lagoon
New music from Lunar C and Hashfinger, as they join forces to bring us Pink Lagoon. Fans of the blog will know I’m a big Lunar fan anyway, but I think this is my favourite from him so far. He definitely benefits from sticking with one producer, and his creative chemistry with Hashfinger has been on point since they first started making music together in the early Bradford days. The whole album is a treat on the ears, but there are definite highlights, like the bars-laden Oil Painting, which features not one, not two, but three battle rap legends, as Lunar is joined by Tony D and Shotty Horroh. Lefty also drops in on a couple of tracks, and P Solja brings the grit on Death Row. No Bandcamp streams, but I’ve included the Spotify preview below. Get stuck in.
Lunar C, Lefty & Henny Hurtz: Blood Orange
A loosie from Lunar C, as he joins forces with Lefty and Henny Hurtz for Blood Orange. Apparently the track and video were recorded and shot within 24 hours, sparked by a heavy blood orange gin session. The track is produced by Ocelot. Stay tuned for my new interview with Lunar coming soon. Continue reading “Lunar C, Lefty & Henny Hurtz: Blood Orange”
Lunar C: The Dirtbrain Tour Documentary
Great documentary from Lunar C, as we delve deep into his recent Dirtbrain Tour. It’s a good insight into Lunar’s perspective on his career and also into how the tour was put together through a lot of hard graft from him and his friends, as well as some further insight into the levels of debauchery that were reached in each city. Packed full of guest stars, including Minas, DJ Heritage, P Solja and Lefty, as well as a bunch of cameos in each city (including yours truly), the documentary is a fine round-up of a highly successful tour. The footage was shot and edited by Rob Heslop & Emily Parish. Dirtbrain is available to stream now on Spotify.
