I’ve got a healthy dose of UK raps for you today, starting off with newly emerged crew, Old Children. Newly emerged they may be, but Old Children is actually comprised of three established artists; namely Booda French, HPBLK (Hyperbolic) and King Kashmere, who decided to pool their talents and put out an understandably strong debut EP. Push Start serves as a fine introduction to Old Children’s methods, with the deftness of Booda and HPBLK’s bars, marrying perfectly with the audible triumph of Kashmere’s production. The first video from the EP was released yesterday, courtesy of Honey JD, and the rest is available to explore below, including the Ramson Badbonez and Jazz T assisted, Louder. Downloads are available now via Louis Den and keep an eye out for physicals coming soon.
To celebrate the arrival of the new Percy Filth EP, today the Louis Den producer dropped his second video from the project. Precious Metals features a lot of lyrical muscle, as Percy channels the power of Geechi Suede, Malay Sparks and Guilty Simpson into the track. There are also some nice cuts, courtesy of Bristol scratch master, DJ Rogue, and a superb animated video from the forever on point, Chris Lucas. You can stream Vibranium Deluxe below and downloads are available now via Bandcamp.
For those of you not in the know, Percy Filth is gearing up to release his latest producer album, Vibranium Deluxe. To set the mood for what’s to follow, yesterday saw the release of the title track, featuring none other than Strange U and Gawd Status galactic overlord, King Kashmere. The full project boasts more equally impressive names, as the Louis Den producer teams up with the likes of Geechi Suede and Guilty Simpson. The album is due for release on 4 November, so expect more on that coming soon.
