A pleasing return to centre stage from Jehst, with the release of his first solo album since 2017’s, Billy Green is Dead. Mork Calling Orson finds the UK rap linchpin on typically fine form, with his pen remaining as sharp as ever and his production choices setting the album’s mood without fault. Contributions from Sam Zircon, Beat Butcha, Sonnyjim, Mr Brown, Keor Meteor, Taharka and Jehst himself, provide a varied but unified sound, while Lee Scott, CW Jones, Sindysman, Eva Lazarus and Confucius MC, all prove to be the perfect co-stars. Previews of Mork Calling Orson can be heard below, with Bandcamp being the best spot to grab your downloads and physical copies.Continue reading “Jehst: Mork Calling Orson (Stream)”

Another visual instalment from the Oblique Strategies album, as Cappo and Mr Brown deliver their latest video.

Oblique Strategies: Numbers Up
Numbers Up is the latest jewel to be released from last year’s Oblique Strategies collaboration from Cappo and Mr Brown.

Raw Pastiche is out now on We Stay True.
