I somehow let this one slip through the gaps last month, but better late than never and it definitely hasn’t lost any of its appeal in the interim. Wish Master continues to position himself as one of the most prolific and consistent MCs of his generation, with another strong collaboration, this time alongside the equally prolific, Illinformed. Coldharbour Tales is a distinctly Bristolian album, from the title itself to the guest stars that Wish and Illinformed have enlisted for the event. Features from the likes of Axel Holy, Upfront, Datkid, Eric the Red and Flying Monk, keep the Bristol flag flying, as well as appearances from Verb T and Gee Bag, which push beyond the city walls. You can experience a taste of the album for yourself below, then head to Bandcamp for all your digital and physical needs.Continue reading “Wish Master x Illinformed: Coldharbour Tales (Stream)”

Wish Master: Fully Loaded
Something a little closer to home now, thanks to Wish Master and Hozay, who recently teamed up to create A Beautiful Mess. Fully Loaded is one of the joints to be taken from the EP, which also boasts features from Axel Holy, Matey Boy and Eto. It’s out now on Official Recordings.
Wish Master: Write Pages
A glimpse at Wish Master through the ages, as the Bristol MC unveils his latest video, starring his past, present and potential future selves. Write Pages is the next song to be lifted from Wish’s most recent album, THE BULL, and features production from Van Dam. The album is out now via Official Recordings.
Wish Master ft. CW Jones: Don’t Waste Time
Wish Master delivers the latest video from his most recent album, The BULL, which features a typically complementary appearance from CW Jones. Don’t Waste Time is produced by Chima and the video was made by Monsta. The album is out now via Official Recordings.
Wish Master: The Bull (Stream)
New music here from Wish Master as he releases his latest album, The Bull. Following on from the Ral Duke produced intro which emerged the other week, production is varied throughout thanks to contributions from a few unfamiliar names (to me anyway), including Van Dam, Chimera and Niya, as well as the always on point, Hozay. Only two guests involved, with CW Jones lending his vocals to Don’t Waste Time and fellow OR artist, Jordan Nathaniel, dropping in on a few tracks. You can hear the whole project below, with downloads available via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Wish Master: The Bull (Stream)”
Wish Master: THE BULL Intro
New music from Wish Master as he prepares to hit us with one of the multiple projects he’s currently sitting on. The man really is a machine and another one who calls bullshit on the quality over quantity rule; why not both? THE BULL Intro is our first taster from the album and features some nice jazzy production from Ral Duke, who also provided the artwork for the video, which was made by Mr Sleven. THE BULL is due for release on 5 June.
Billy Whizz: Kobra Kai Style (Stream)
Bristol keeps the rap flag held high with another strong release from the city’s seemingly endless stash of talent, as Billy Whizz returns with his new solo EP. The DJ and producer has amassed a good circle of collaborators over the years and this is demonstrated to superb effect on Kobra Kai Style. Among the instrumental joys we find thought provoking rap joints, like the Wish Master assisted Moves I Make, and soul-drenched, horn-flecked bangers like Fire/Water, which features Bristol OG, Mylo Stone, and vocalist, Melissa Dawn. More weight is added to the EP’s appeal, thanks to two further appearances by Relly and G00SE. You can hear the full thing for yourself below, with downloads and physicals available via Bandcamp.

Billy Whizz ft. G00SE: Forbidden Skill
A new video here from Bristol producer, Billy Whizz, as he starts the ball rolling for the release of his latest EP. On Forbidden Skill, he is joined by fellow Bristol resident and Verbal Highz MC, G00SE, who is put through a particularly rigorous workout by Merv Hembrough aka Mahd Hacka, before G00SE and Bill have a fight that rivals Sugar Ray vs. Thomas Hearns. The Kobra Kai Style EP is out soon on Official Recordings. The video was made by Dhack Media.
Wish Master ft. Scarboy: Grinding
Another sure shot from Wish Master as the Bristol MC continues his climb to the top with another solid track from his Boom Bap to the Future album. Grinding is produced by Baileys Brown and features fellow rap merchant, Scarboy. The video was made by Chris Lucas. Boom Bap to the Future is available to download now.
Wish Master & Datkid: Bris Life
New video from Wish Master and Datkid, as they deliver an ode to their favourite South West city. Bris Life is produced by Leaf Dog and the track is lifted from 2018’s Wish Master EP, which is out now on Official Recordings. The video was made by Sektion Red.
