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.
It’s been a long time coming, but yesterday we were finally treated to the full release of the new album from UK favourite, Dabbla. Any regular visitors to my blog will know that I have been championing the album since its coming was announced some months ago. And with good reason because the whole project is a treat for the ears, packed with a standard of lyricism and production high enough to bring the devil himself to tears.
There are plenty of stellar features too from the likes of Rag’N’Bone Man, Eva Lazarus, Illaman, LDZ and Jam Baxter, but the main star is Dabbla who seems to be at his hungriest yet on Death Moves; quite a feat for an MC who has been giving his all to every release since his debut with LDZ.
You can stream the full album below and there is also a brand new video for the title track, produced by Dirty Dike, Pete Cannon and GhostTown. The video itself was made by Obese Aesthetics – the dons behind the hugely successful Psychoville video, from Dabbla’s previous album. You can grab digital/physical copies of the album over at the Potent Funk store. Continue reading “Dabbla: Death Moves (Album Stream & Video)”
A personal favourite from the forthcoming Dabbla album, as the Potent Funk MC unleashes his latest video. Long Gone features fellow Dead Player, Jam Baxter and a filthy beat from long-term collaborator, Sumgii. Just wait for that drop. The video was made by Spin City Visuals. Death Moves is due out on 5 October.
The enigmatic production force known only as Final Boss returns with the next wave of his assault on the UK rap scene. This time he takes on the lyrical might of Harry the Bastard of LDZ fame. You can cop a download now over at the Potent Funk store. The video was made by Vid3t and Liquid Odds.
