Freshness from Verses Bang, as he readies us for the launch of his new EP. Plethora is produced by fellow TrollGang ally, Oozhe. Cardigans & Calories is out on 11 October.

Starting off the week on a high note, as I bring you an exclusive new joint from TrollGang representative, Skrabl. Lion of the Zodiac sees the Wordplay Records artist teaming up with his old friend and fellow TG member, Oozhe, with the duo delivering a piano laced, lyrical bonanza, perfectly highlighting Skrabl’s style of vocal architecture. You can hear Lion of the Zodiac below, with streams available on all the other usual platforms.

Sylla B is due to hit us with a new album very soon and last week he treated us to a taste of what he’s got lined up. Spooky sees the Bristol-based MC cooking up a murky little number, with TrollGang production ace, Oozhe. Stay tuned for more news on the album coming soon.

Verses Bang is back with the next video from his most recent release, featuring a budget take on the excessive flossin’ of some of the more clichéd rap videos. Everything Kosher is produced by Oozhe and can be found on Dressed To Kill… Myself, which is out now. The video was made by Odyssey Film Co.

The release of Skrabl’s latest album, Wood for the Trees, is a notable occasion on two counts. Firstly it’s the debut release for the newly formed Wordplay Records and secondly, the album signifies a change in Skrabl’s sound. He’s still very much the same MC in terms of skillful wordplay and dexterity, but the overall production has taken a different turn with elements of trap creeping into certain tracks, as well as a general air of new wave throughout the whole project.
Which is all fine by me because if you can do something well and it still sounds banging, then go for it. I’m all for artists exploring new avenues in terms of defying their usual, often self-imposed, artistic restrictions. The production is handled in full by fellow TrollGang representative, Oozhe, and save from a solo feature from final TG member, Verses Bang, the rest of the album allows Skrabl to take centre stage and flourish. Wood for the Trees is available to stream below and you can cop physicals/downloads over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

Strong start to Skrabl’s new LP, as he releases the first video from the project. Wood For The Trees is the title track and is produced by fellow TROLLGANG member, Oozhe. The album is due for release on 25 January, on TG’s new label home, Wordplay Records.

Verses Bang recently announced that he is one of the first artists to be signed to the newly formed Wordplay Records label, alongside his TrollGang associates, Skrabl and Oozhe. Hanger In My Coffin is the latest track to be lifted from last year’s Dressed To Kill… Myself and features the forever dope tones of SonnyJim, with Oozhe on the beat. Keep an ear out for a lot more music coming from the TG boys real soon.

Verses Bang treats us to another video from his recent EP, as he drops a fresh visual for Let Down, produced by Oozhe. The EP, Dressed To Kill​.​. Myself, is available now over on Bandcamp.

UK producer, Oozhe, takes a break from smashing out beats for the likes of Verses Bang and Ocean Wisdom, to bless us with the fifth instalment from his Pigeon Feed beat tape series. From the triumphant slaps on the appropriately named opener, Enter, to the scratch infested head-nod vibes of Stage 33, Pigeon Feed 5 is a perfect addition to the series. Oozhe is able to straddle the line between boom bap styles and more contemporary flavours, without sounding like he’s pandering to the stalwarts from either group. You can stream the tape below, with streams and downloads available from the usual spots. Read the rest of this entry »

New music from Verses Bang and his recently released Dressed to Kill… Myself project. I’ve been waiting a minute to hear it, but it was all worth it, as one of the more unique characters in UK rap brings his brand back to the masses. In The Nude Interlude is produced by regular collaborator, Oozhe, who orchestrated the beats on the whole project. Dressed To Kill… Myself is out now on all the usual platforms.
