Another huge track from Baileys Brown as the release date for his solo album draws ever nearer. This time round, the Bristol producer has drafted in his old accomplice, Datkid, as well as his label-mate, Dabbla, with the trio going off in pursuit of that elusive cash money. And once again it’s another stunning visual accomplishment from This & That Media (keep your eyes peeled for plenty of UKHH related cameos too). The album, Still Fresh, is due for release on 26 July on Potent Funk.
This is the latest offering from the forthcoming album from Bristol producer, Baileys Brown. For Reeboks, he has joined forces with Datkid and Stinkin Slumrok, as well as own rap alter ego, Axel Holy. The result is a glitchy, warped beast of a track which only raises the anticipation for the full release. The video was made by Conz. Still Fresh is due for release next month on Potent Funk.
The good music run continues with the new video from Cobes. Despite being a player on the scene since the early LDZ days, this is Cobes’s first solo release and hopefully a sign that a full project is in the works. For Deja Vu Cobes has enlisted the production talents of regular Potent Funk collaborator, Don Piper, with Spin City Visuals on video duties (a video which could be deemed NSFW, so beware!). Streaming and download options are also available.
Here is the second video from the long-awaited solo EP from Illaman. As with the rest of the EP, Shook is produced by Norm Oddity and is taken from Give Us A Smile, which is out now on all the usual platforms.
Great video from the recently released Illaman EP, Give Us a Smile. Times of Change is produced by Norm Oddity, with a typically tight feature from DRS. The video was made by Tarnish Vision. The EP is out now on Potent Funk.
Potent Funk unveiled their latest release today, in the form of Illaman’s long-awaited solo EP. The MC has been a firm favourite over the years, thanks to his work with ProblemChild, Chinese Man and more recently PENGSHUi, as well as a whole bunch of features and collaborations. Now the time has come for a proper solo release, namely his Give Us a Smile EP, for which he has enlisted the production talents of Norm Oddity. Oddity brings a nice selection of beats to the project, ranging from the simple stripped down pleasure of the opening track, Sequence, to the pure glitchy joy of Air Max & Avirex, allowing for plenty of experimentation (and resultant success) from Illaman. There is a superb lone feature too from Illa’s old pal, DRS, who drops in on Times of Change – the video for which is dropping later today. Give Us a Smile can be heard in full below, with downloads available via Potent Funk. Continue reading “Illaman: Give Us a Smile EP (Stream)”
Another gem from Dabbla’s Death Moves album, as he unveils the new video for Same Old Me. The track is produced by HashFinger and the video was made by Spin City Visuals. Death Moves is out now on Potent Funk.
There are a few forthcoming releases to be excited about in 2019, but one that should be near the top of all your lists is the long-awaited solo album from Baileys Brown. He’s found himself a new label home in the form of Potent Funk, one that suits his sound exceptionally well, in my opinion. The first taste of what’s in store was delivered over Christmas, with the lead single, Horses Mouth.
The track features two of Brown’s long-term collaborators, Datkid and Jinxsta JX, as well as a video from one of Bristol’s finest, Chris Lucas. The album, Still Fresh, is coming soon with a hefty list of features from Stinkin Slumrok, Black Josh, Bil Next, Axel Holy, Juga-Naut, Wish, Vard, Ly, Jordan Nathaniel, Anbu, Hozay, Bogues, Conz and Jay0117.
Another visual smash from Dabbla and his recent Death Moves LP. Once again he has enlisted the ample talents of Spin City Visuals for the video, with long-term production sparring partner, Sumgii, cooking up another banger for the beat. Death Moves is out now on Potent Funk.
More of that 5 Star Anarchy sound, as Benofficial and Prozac return with Check It Out. Lot more on the way from these two, so keep those eyes and ears peeled. The track is available to buy now via Potent Funk.
