Verbz & Mr Slipz: The Feeling

Verbz and Mr Slipz keep the hype building for their new album, with the release of their latest single. The Feeling is more of that straight up boom bap brilliance we have come to expect from the duo, accompanied by a typically slick video from Parallel Media. The album, Radio Waves, is due for release on 13 November via High Focus.

Verbz & Mr Slipz: 2202 FM

After a couple of tantalising clips and videos, Verbz and Mr Slipz are ready to deliver their official High Focus debut LP. Today sees the release of the lead single from the album, with Verbz and Slipz proving exactly why their creative partnership is so much in demand. As well as the neck-snapping drum-driven production from Slipz, there are also some tasty cuts from Tom Yum and the video was made by Parallel Media. Keep an eye out for a couple of cameos too. I’ll have more news on the album soon.

Verbz & Mr Slipz: For My Peeps

Brand new track from Verbz and Mr Slipz, as they continue to celebrate their new union with High Focus. For My Peeps is a song for all those absent friends who cannot be with us for whatever reason and it is dedicated to Joey Deez of Village Live, who sadly passed away last week. He will be missed by many. The video was made by the LOUDHOUSE gang.

Benaddict: Angel Eyes

Very happy to be able to bring you new music from Benaddict, as he returns to the fore with a new single. The Yogocop MC and producer has been relatively silent since his 2018 album, A New Leaf, so it’s nice to hear him back at it, and with a really nice track too. Angel Eyes features production from Mr Slipz, fresh from his recent signing with High Focus alongside Verbz. The track is the first to be taken from Benaddict’s upcoming album, Rain Falls, which I will have more news on soon. The video was made by This & That Media. Pre-orders for Rain Falls are already available.

Verbz & Mr Slipz: Iron Grip

High Focus recently announced that they had further boosted their roster with the addition of Verbz and Mr Slipz. The London-Brighton duo released a superb album together back in 2018, filled with tasty jazz breaks and stellar penmanship, and this latest single is carrying on the same tradition. It also comes alongside a typically slick video from LOUDHOUSE. No news on the album yet, but stay tuned. Streams of Iron Grip are available at the usual spots.
