Another solid offering from Juga-Naut, as he reconnects with Micall Parknsun for Twelve Bricks. The success of their earlier Six Bricks EP prompted the duo to return to the lab and record a full-length. And we should all be thankful they did. Jugz has been sitting comfortably among the upper echelons of UK hip hop for a while now, so his partnership with a veteran as consistent as Parky makes a lot of sense, even more so when you hear the finished product. A nice variation in the beat selection helps to keep things interesting, especially when you make your way through the album for the umpteenth time in an attempt to collect every jewel that Juga-Naut is dropping. Some decent features too, with his fellow VVV gang stepping up to the plate on GAUDI-GANG, Tommy Nova and Scorz dropping in on The Juice, and Da Flyy Hooligan rounding things off on the album’s closer. You can experience the full thing for yourself below, with physicals also available.
Fresh heat from CLBRKS as he continues his recent run of success with his latest single, Holy Fountain. The track is produced by MPC killer, Micall Parknsun, and the video was made by Honey JD.

New arrival from Micall Parknsun and Giallo Point, as they bring us another video from their excellent Magnum Opus LP, in conjunction with the UKHH.com gang. Magnum Opus is out now on both digital and vinyl.
A fresh collab from Giallo Point, as he joins forces with yet another UK legend for his latest project. The Magnum Opus is the brainchild of Giallo and Micall Parknsun, with the duo finding a seemingly perfect synergy in their MC-producer partnership. The features only add to the album’s weight, as we find the likes of Jehst, Smoovth, Da Flyy Hooligan and Sonnyjim all adding their piece to the proceedings. You can stream a couple of tracks below, with downloads available over on Bandcamp. The artwork for the album was created by Emily Catherine.
Another strong cut lifted off the new album from Micall Parknsun and Giallo Point, which was released on Friday.

The video for Danger was made by Dfacer.
Giallo Point looks set to continue his run of success with UK rap heavyweights this year, as he joins forces with Micall Parknsun for a forthcoming album. Let It Go is the first single and sounds as tight as you would expect from two artists of their calibre. The video was made by Dfacer and the album, Magnum Opus, is due for release shortly.
More gold from Shay D as she releases the next video from her acclaimed Human Writes album. No Stress is produced by Micall Parknsun and the video was made by Chiba Visuals.
Continuing the theme of strong link-ups, today also sees the release of the debut project from Gawd Status. A debut it may well be but this is not Gawd Status’s first musical journey, as in their individual forms, King Kashmere and Joker Starr have long been major presences on the UK rap landscape. Firmamentum is a psychedelic joy on the ears, boasting a heavy guestlist, including features from Big Cakes, Micall Parknsun and Anyway Tha God. You might also recognise the cover art as being a brainchild of the man behind Strange U’s album artwork, Matt Littler. Firmamentum is available now via Tru Thoughts and you can stream it in full below.
Nice selection of tracks from In The Balance, featuring the wealth of talent that makes up their current roster.
