Sumgii x Illaman x Chunky: Lost in Space

New movements from the Potent Funk family, as they unveil a new collab between Sumgii, Illaman and Chunky. Their first track, Lost in Space, surfaced last week and set the pace for whatever else they have in store. Not even sure if there is more to come, but let’s hope so. Lost in Space is available to stream now on all the usual platforms. The video was made by Max Motion.

Problem Child: Me

A new drop for an old track here, as Potent Funk dust off one of their most cherished releases in the form of Problem Child’s 730 EP. The EP was recently given the remastering treatment and released back into a world very much in need of its anarchic energy and zero bullshit pedigree. For those unfamiliar, Problem Child was originally made up of Dabbla, Dubbledge and Sumgii, before Illaman joined their ranks not long after. They still exist under the updated moniker, Still A Problem, and I think we are due some new music soon, which would help explain the rejuvenated EP we’ve been blessed with. Check out the video for Me above and then head here to check the rest of the project.

Dabbla x Sumgii: Out My Way

Fresh visual stimulation from the Potent Funk family, as Dabbla and Sumgii reveal the latest video from their recent Nobody LP. Once again, it’s This & That Media who are the brains behind the video, which features cameos from a selection of perhaps familiar faces, including Jester Jacobs and Alenee Aisha. Nobody is out now on all the usual platforms, with physicals available via Potent Funk.

Dabbla x Sumgii: Nobody (Video) + LP Stream

New visual antics from Dabbla and Sumgii, as they celebrate the release of their new album with a fresh video. Nobody is the titular track, as well as the opener, and as you will hear the duo kick things off with a bass-heavy bang. I’ve got a proper review coming in The Wire next month, but just know that for my money this is Dabbla’s strongest work to date, and when he’s alongside a producer he knows that well and the producer is as talented as Sumgii is, then you’re already looking at a recipe for success, which is easily surpassed on Nobody. The tense, bloodthirsty visuals come courtesy of This & That Media. Nobody is out now on Potent Funk and you can stream it in full below.

Benofficial x Prozac: Ranch + EP Stream

Pleased to see the return of Benofficial to the blog, as he unveils the lead single from his new EP. Still From The Sauce sees the Potent Funk MC reconnecting with producer, Prozac, who remains at the helm for the whole project. You can check out the video for Ranch above and you can hear the rest of the EP below. Continue reading “Benofficial x Prozac: Ranch + EP Stream”

Dabbla x Sumgii: Shimmy

If you go down to the woods today, you might stumble upon some strange scenes, as Dabbla unveils the lead single from his forthcoming collab with Sumgii. Having known each other for years and worked on music together for almost as long, these are two artists who would find it virtually impossible to put out a dud on their solo efforts, let alone when they join forces like this. Shimmy is a good intro to their twisted, glitchy world, accompanied by some acid-tinged visuals with Dabbla channelling the spirit of the good Dr Gonzo. The video was made by This & That Media. Nobody is due for release next month on Potent Funk.

Dabbla: Legs to a Snake

Dabbla kicks off his year with a new video, taken from his acclaimed 2018 album, Death Moves. The video sees Dabbla channeling his inner sensei, as he delivers some typically intricate wordplay over some tight production from Don Piper. The video was made by Spin City Visuals. Death Moves is out now on Potent Funk. Continue reading “Dabbla: Legs to a Snake”

Frosty: Crush (Stream)

As the temperature starts to drop and the evenings get darker, it’s best to have a good source of heat at hand to stave off the winter woes. Thankfully Frosty just released his new mixtape and it’s packed full of enough flames to melt what little is left of the Arctic.
