Good to see the return of Moose Funk Squad, as they reunite for an unsurprisingly solid EP. National Geographic Shit continues in the same vaguely irreverent vein that has been a theme through all their projects, while still upheld by thoroughly engrossing raps and equally enticing production, the latter of which comes from Luca Brazi. An enjoyable listen overall and a much welcome breath of less serious air. You can check the video for 2One above, while the rest of the EP is available to explore below. Downloads are available via Broke Records.
New music from Helsinki Booze Merchants, as they announce the release of their debut album. While the name might not be familiar in this form, their individual IDs will no doubt be, as the crew is made up of Luca Brazi, Benny Diction and Mnsr Frites, who have worked as solo artists and on plenty of collaborations together over the years. This latest offering is entirely produced by Brazi, as well as two remixes from Chemo and Chuck Enzo chucked in for good measure. You can sample a couple of the tracks below, including that Enzo remix, and then get set for the full release of the album, Film Poster Whips, on 1 August. There is also a Qrates push to get a vinyl edition made, so get involved with that if you can. More info here. Continue reading “Helsinki Booze Merchants: Film Poster Whips”
Another solid album from Granville Sessions has been given life and is now available for your delectation. Monument is the third album from the South London crew, following on from 2011’s No State and 2013’s Forward, both of which were well received by critics and helped earn a reputation for strong lyricism, alongside notable live performances.

Moose Funk Squad representatives Luca Brazi and Joe Represci (aka Jester Jacobs) have gone and made an album together. Entitled the Truffle Barons LP, this is quality rap with a good understanding of not taking yourself too seriously. This video features friend and frequent collaborator Benny Diction. Check the video, then check the LP over at Broke Records.
The brand new video from Granville Sessions premiered on We Plug Good Music yesterday and it’s another smasher from the South London collective. Calgon Sunrise is going to be available to download from 10 June.
Yet more new music from the Moose, as they drop their second EP in as many weeks: Hoof Prints Vol. 2. This time the release is produced in its entirety by arguably the UK’s best coiffured producer, Pte Cannon. The track is great and is made even greater by the excellent video by Cowboy Tactics. Good shit. The EP is available to download over at Bandcamp.
Following on from my post about their new EP, Moose Funk Squad just dropped a new video. Habitat, like the rest of the EP, is produced by P739. Downloads are available here.
New music from one of the best named crews out here, as Moose Funk Squad drop Hoof Prints Vol.1. This is their second release, following on from the very popular Moose Funk Vol.1 and is produced in its entirety by P739. It is available to download now over at the Broke Records Bandcamp.
Next up is a track that marks the very welcome return of Granville Sessions. Leave It is the first we have heard from the gang since they released their excellent album Forward in 2013. They have obviously been putting in the work in the interim, because they have come back with a very different sound, a move which only makes me want to hear more of what they have been concocting in the lab. You can buy Leave It over at Bandcamp now for the princely sum of £1.00.
