Almost full gang in the latest video from Blah Records, as Children of the Damned release their first new music in two years. OFFIE is the first of two new tracks, which are also getting a limited 7″ vinyl release. The track features, in order, Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Barebase, Bill Shakes, King Grubb, Sly Moon and Salar, on top of some murky production from Wholesome Fun and Lee. It’s a great track, made all the more better thanks to a full verse from Barebase, which is pretty much a guaranteed improvement in any area of life. The video was made by Siim Parisoo and Lee. More info about the vinyl is available over at the Blah site.

I have never done an end of year list before, or at least nothing that has been published. But there have been so many strong releases this year, that it felt right to celebrate some of the music I’ve been enjoying over the last 12 months. This will be a list of my 50 favourite rap and hip hop releases from this year, including projects from both the UK and the US. They are in no order, other than the order I remembered them in, or came across them as I tried to jog my increasingly unreliable memory by scouring through my blog and Spotify history. I’ve included Bandcamp links where possible. The rest of the list will be published over the next few weeks.

Continuing with the element of surprise, today sees the release of the latest album from Lee Scott, which was recently announced unexpected. Somewhere Between Here and There is worthy of consideration for your end of year lists, with Lee on fine form both behind the mic and behind the boards. His self-produced tracks are often among the highlights of his releases and this latest project is no exception, with tracks like An Ear For Violence, lingering in your mind after they end. That particular song hears Lee recollecting two dark events from his past and is in my opinion, one of his strongest tracks to date. Features on the LP come from BeTheGun, Milkavelli, King Grubb, Obijuan and looms., plus there is production from Lee, Wholesome Fun, Dylantheinfamous, Bisk and Kiyani. You can listen to the album below and a limited edition vinyl version is available via Blah. There is also a video for the Bisk helmed, Table, which you can watch below.

All-round production don, Sumgii, has a new EP en route, on the infamous Swamp81 label. Sumgii has long been one of my favourite producers and so I thought I’d share this new playlist, featuring some of his greatest beats to date. The playlist features audible gold from the likes of Cult Mountain, Jam Baxter, Lee Scott, Milkavelli and Dabbla. There is also an instrumental version too, which you can find here. It should get you into just the right mood for the EP, which is due for release very soon. More info to follow.

Brand new video from Lee Scott and Jam Baxter, as they kick of the official release of their album, Happy Hour At The Super Fun Time Party Dome Megamix 4000. When Lee first sent me the LP a few months ago, he did so with the warning that it was weird. I like weird, was my reply. And while it might not be your run of the mill rap album, it definitely remains on the right side of weird, complete with drunk style crooning from Lee. It features production from loads of great names, including Sumgii, Drae Da Skimask, GhostTown, Dirty Dike and Jack Jetson, plus there are guest spots from the likes of Jetson, Stinkin Slumrok, Milkavelli, Trellion and Lyza Jane. The whole thing can be heard below and you can see the video for the Dike produced, Who’s Ur M8, above. It was made by Slim Parisoo. Vinyl copies of the album are available over at the Blah store.

Today saw the release of a new video from the Mcabre Brothers. INABIT is produced by fellow Blah resident Jack Danz and the video was made by Grit Multimedia. The track is lifted from a new project – Hot Mess – from the duo which they put together on their recent tour. More news on that soon.

Milkavelli recently dropped a mini mix of new music, which features the 616 God finessing over a tight production selection from Nobodies Home – aka Lee Scott, Sniff and Jack Chard. The illustrations for the video (and accompanying merch) were done by J. Neilson.

Tell A Friend is the first video to be lifted from the new Mcabre Brothers EP of the same name. The video features Lee Scott and Milkavelli in some eerie part animated form, as well as some excellent production from Universal Soldiers favourite, A.H. Fly. The vinyl edition of Tell A Friend is available now via the Blah store, with the digital version following later this month.

Last week saw the release of the latest album from Black Josh. Yung Sweg Lawd is arguably his strongest work to date, with the Manchester MC exploring a wide range of production styles, while managing to sound at home on all of them. The production is handled by a host of talent, including fellow LEVELZ members Biome and Metrodome, as well as the likes of Jack Danz, Reklews, dylantheinfamous, Sly Moon and Pitch 92. There are also a bunch of strong features, including Milkavelli, Truthos Mufasa, Lee Scott, ELIZA and Sniff. The album is available to stream below and you can also watch the latest video from the project for the Skepta produced banger, Ciggaweed. Downloads are available via Blah.

In a great end to a shit week, today sees the release of the new album from Hock Tu Down – aka Lee Scott and Reklews. The Blah OGs originally formed the duo back in 2009, when they released their Prozium Peddlin album, followed the year after by Something Strange. Both those projects proved popular and with good reason, as the duo’s brand of self-proclaimed paranoid druggy rap came with a chemistry that just made the music enjoyable – as with pretty much everything Blah puts out.
