Manchester rap crew, The Bluntskins, are dropping a new album soon and so to get us in the mood they have released a video from the project. The animation for Risks In Life was done by Bill Sykes. Stay tuned for more news on the album coming soon.

Another great project from Manchester favourite, Skittles, as he treats us to his latest album, Poor on Purpose. Thanks to his work in MCR over the years, including some stunning material as part of LEVELZ, Skittles has built up a sturdy and much-deserved following as well as props from his peers across the country. Poor on Purpose serves as am ideal snapshot of how he reached that level including his versatility on the mic, with his intricate flows effortlessly lacing a wide range of beats – including a very Manny-centric story in the form of Zeeko II. Skittles has some assistance on a few tracks, thanks to appearances from DRS, Fox, Truthos, Frisko and Think Tonk. Poor on Purpose is available to stream in full below and you can find physicals/downloads over on Bandcamp, complete with a very special vinyl presentation. Read the rest of this entry »

DnB producer, Lenzman, reunites with Manchester duo Children of Zeus for a new cut. Rain is lifted from Lenzman’s album, Bobby, which is due for release soon on the Metalheadz label.

Another blinding debut release right here, as Manchester-based producer, Pitch 92, drops his highly anticipated 3rd Culture album. It’s a debut for a producer who has long been a part of the UK scene, making a name for himself off the back of a string of solid collaborations alongside a number of artists including Verb T and more recently, DRS. He released his Lost in Space EP on High Focus last year to critical acclaim, but now he takes things up to new heights with this full-length project. Read the rest of this entry »

More Manchester music for your eyes and ears, courtesy of The Bluntskins and their new lucha libre-inspired video. When The Rain Goes is produced by Pro P, with vocals from Bill Sykes, Cheech and Martin Connor. Downloads are available via Bandcamp.

Great track from Manchester crew, Voodoo Black, as they kick off the year with Gettin Dum. Dubbul O, Ellis Meade and Sparkz take the tempo up to 140, demonstrating their shared dexterity in the booth, with Cutterz production hitting the right notes as standard. Lots more to come from Voodoo Black this year, so keep those eyes peeled.

I took a break over the festive/festering season so I’ve got a hell of a lot to catch up on. Let’s start with the latest release from one of Manchester’s more boisterous collectives, LEVELZ, as they return with Rainy Day (LVL 50). The track features vocal work from Chimpo, Fox, Skittles and Sparkz, plus production from Metrodome and Bricks. Rainy Day is available to download now via Bandcamp.

New music from LEVELZ, as the Manchester collective return with the LVL 47 aka Warning Call. This time round mic duties are handled by Sparkz, Chimpo and Black Josh, with Metrodome and Sparkz on the beat. As usual you can grab a free download over on Bandcamp. The video was made by Tarnish Vision.

A new video from The Bluntskins emerged over the weekend, taken from their 2016 offering, Return of the Blunts. The video was filmed over several trips to their home from home, Amsterdam. The album is still available via Bandcamp.
