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”
Yesterday saw the return of Benny Diction and his new Oak Dreams EP.

The Australian influence is noticeable throughout, including a feature from Perth MC, Mathas. There is also another guest spot from Benny’s fellow Scran Cartel member, MNSR Frites. You can stream Oak Dreams below, with other streaming and downloads available via Millennium Jazz Music. Continue reading “Benny Diction & Able8: Oak Dreams (Stream)”

Happy to announce the imminent arrival of the collaborative album from Benny Diction and Mnsr Frites – aka Scran Cartel. Food-based wordplay and culinary references in abundance, as this amuse-bouche demonstrates with the Cartel joining forces with fellow foodie, Juga-Naut, for Bon Appétit. Jugz also produced the track. The full album is scheduled for release at the end of the month; stay tuned for more on that coming very soon.
A great debut from a great group of established MCs, who have come together to form something of a UK supergroup. Beit Nun, Benny Diction and Deeflux have all been familiar names on the scene for years and have made some classic tracks as their own entities, but Corners may be their best work yet, as the combined power of the three creates something a little bit special. Continue reading “Corners: Corners LP”
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.

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.
