Yesterday we were treated to the first sample from the forthcoming Black Josh album, as he released a video for a new track called Nite Time. Featuring production from METRODOME, the track is taken from Mannyfornia, which is due for release soon on Blah Records. Streams of Nite Time are also available.
More fresh soulful vibes from one of MCR’s finest, as LayFullStop returns with her latest single, PMT. The track is produced by RKW and is lifted from Lay’s new Cherries EP. You can hear the EP now over on Spotify.
Short burst of DnB to propel you into the week ahead, as Dub Phizix and Strategy join forces once again for Calm. The video shows Strategy, among others, looking increasingly beaten up as he remains calm in the face of all the problems the world is experiencing right now. You can watch it above, plus the track is also available to stream and download.
Staying in Manchester for a second, as we check out the latest video from Children of Zeus. Hard Work is one of many highlights from their debut LP, Travel Light, which is out now on First Word Records.
LayFullStop delivers her latest video for the previously released gem, Cherries. The track features production from fellow MCR resident, Pitch 92. Hoping we get to hear more from them in the future.
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.
