A fresh cut from the new Pitch 92 album just landed, featuring another hero from the UK scene. Comin’ Home is the next taster from Pitch’s looming album, Intervals, and features a routinely competent guest spot from Verbz. The video was made by Honey JD (surprise surprise). Pre-orders for the album are available now, with the release set for 27 August.
A short burst of brilliance here from Pitch 92 and King Kashmere, as they connect on Iph-Ro. The increasingly prolific, Honey JD, is the brains behind the video. You can also download and stream the single at all the usual spots.
Next up I’ve got the brand new single from Pitch 92, which was released earlier today. Live From London sees the High Focus producer once again joining forces with Jehst, successfully continuing the chemistry they’ve captured on their previous collaborations. Just this loosie for now, but I’m hoping there’s more from both of them on the way to us soon. Streams and downloads are also available.
Pitch 92 is one of the collaboration kings, go check his 3rd Culture album for further proof. In the meantime though, get stuck into his latest single, which sees its release today and features yet another hefty guest list. Lord Apex, Jehst and Kiko Bun all bring their A game to the proceedings, with Pitch’s production verging into future funk & soul territory. The track is out now on High Focus and there is a limited 7″ vinyl edition available, which also includes Pitch’s previous single, Suttin’ In The Trunk.
Pitch 92 is back with a bang, as he unveils his latest single. It’s the first new music we have heard from the High Focus producer since the arrival of his Question of Time album, which he released alongside Verb T last year. High Focus have been recently hinting that Pitch had been busy in the lab and now the fruits of his labour are being given life, starting off with Suttin’ In The Trunk, which features a tight guest appearance from Lord Apex. No word on an album yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t least get to hear more new bits from Pitch very soon.
Big bars here from Jehst, as he steps out of quarantine to remind us all why he is regarded as one of the UK’s best. State of the Union is just over two minutes of pure wordplay and craftsmanship, over some tight string-driven production from Pitch 92. Jehst’s UK tour has been rescheduled for October, with tickets remaining valid. More info on his site.
Today is the day that TrueMendous delivers her new EP into the world; her first release since joining the High Focus ranks a couple of months ago. We had already been treated to a couple of singles from the EP and today, to coincide with the release, High Focus have dropped another new video. Sweetheart finds the Brum MC at her sharpest, as she obliterates some grimy yet slick production from Chemo. The production remains strong throughout the EP, thanks to further contributions from Pitch 92, Illinformed, Winchester and Marcus Jakes. All in all it feels like the perfect vehicle for showcasing TrueMendous’s talents and one that will hopefully get her the shine she deserves. You can hear HUH? in full below, with downloads available from the usual spots. Continue reading “TrueMendous: Sweetheart + EP Stream”
On Wednesday it was announced that High Focus had increased their numbers once again, with the introduction of TrueMendous onto their roster. It’s a win on two levels, as TrueMendous is an incredible MC who deserves more recognition, but also she is the first female artists to be signed by the label since their inception back in 2010, which is definitely a move in the right direction. For her debut HF release, the Birmingham MC has teamed up with label-mate Pitch 92 for That Don’t Mean, which provides a perfect snapshot of her energetic flows. The video was made by Leon Matthews. That Don’t Mean is available to stream now and stay tuned for more new music from TrueMendous coming soon.
Another important release that has surfaced in the end of year flurry, is the latest album from Lunar C. After the success of his Dirtbrain LP last year, the Bradford rapper delivers an album which finds him sharper and more entertaining than ever. It’s the same blend of depraved humour, killer punchlines, self-deprecation and hilarious braggadocio, but with a more focused and cohesive feel. There are guest spots this time too, including VVV’s Juga-Naut, who kills his verse on Last Action Hero, and Roll Deep favourite, Mango, who joins Jehst and Lunar on Zero Fux. I can’t find much information on the production credits, but I know Pitch 92 and Jehst definitely both played a part, and I would hazard a guess that beats from HashFinger and Muckaniks are probably in the mix as well. The whole album can be streamed below and downloads can be found on Bandcamp.
Keeping the momentum going, here’s the brand new video from Verb T and Pitch 92. Frostbitten is the latest gem to be mined from their recent album, A Question of Time, which is out now on High Focus. The video was made by Parallel Media.
