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 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”
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.
Baileys Brown keeps us hooked with another new video from his recent Still Fresh LP. Swim sees the Bristol producer teaming up with fellow SW rap aficionados and regular collaborators, Datkid, Jinxsta JX and Hozay, all rounded off with a slick video from Don Wavey. The album is out now on Potent Funk.
Very happy to finally be able to bring you the new Baileys Brown solo LP in all its genre-defying glory. If you’re already familiar with Baileys Brown’s work, you will know he is a producer who is not afraid to venture outside the normal constraints of a genre and draw on musical influences from other areas, to create unique soundscapes which are among some of the most ambitious in the UK right now. When he found a home at Potent Funk it seemed like the ideal setting for his exploits, thanks to their already established love of ‘hybrid rap shit’ and with that in mind, Still Fresh serves as the perfect label debut.

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.
