Ramson Badbonez: Jewels & Gems

Here we have another video from the recent Ramson Badbonez album, which saw its release last month. Jewels & Gems is one of my favourite cuts from the LP, thanks in part to Mark Fear’s production which throbs with energy, adding further weigh to Badbonez’s meticulous flow. In reference to the song’s title, the video sees the High Focus MC and some other ‘inmates’ being sent to work in a mine, thanks to the visual skills of Emotion Blur. Death Mask is out now.

Ramson Badbonez: Sarcophagus

New music from UK underground favourite, Ramson Badbonez, as he gears up to release his new Death Mask LP. On Sarcophagus, Badbonez takes aim at what I like to call grief tourism – the trend of people seemingly only championing an artist’s work once the artist is dead, having never mentioned them or their art before the event. I’m all for people discovering new artists who they relate to or connect with musically, but to go on as if you’ve always been their biggest fan, just to get more likes, is ultimately a bitch move. The video for Sarcophagus was made by This & That Media and the track was produced by Mark Fear. Pre-orders for Death Mask are available now. Continue reading “Ramson Badbonez: Sarcophagus”

Ramson Badbonez: Bloodsplat

As I mentioned last week, the infamous Ramson Badbonez is back with a new album and Bloodsplat is the next track to be lifted from it. He goes in on the horrorcore angle, which won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but his dexterity on the mic is as on point as ever. Not sure who produced the track, but it’s same sample that Dike used in Don’t Make Me by Lee Scott – one for my fellow geeks. The video was made by Luca Bowles. Jason Bonez is out now on High Focus Records.

Ramson Badbonez: Lock Your Doors

Badbonez is back and he’s bringing with him a new album. High Focus announced the imminent arrival of Jason Bonez the other day and now we have a new video to get us all in the mood. The album draws on inspiration from Friday the 13th, so expect his lyricism to be as raw as ever. Lock Your Doors is produced by Dr Zygote and Jazz T. The album is due for release on 25 May.
