For The Love is the latest track to be lifted from the new album from Res One and Illinformed. The Bristol duo released A Dogs Dreams last week, the debut drop for Green Brick Records. Head to their store now to cop one of the last few vinyl copies, or check Bandcamp for your digital needs. The video was my Bucket Hat Jack.
Happy to see the arrival of the debut album from Green Brick Records, as Res One and Illinformed drop the long-awaited A Dogs Dreams.

You can stream the full project below, with downloads and limited edition vinyl available over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Res One & Illinformed: A Dogs Dreams (Stream)”
More UK heat as Res One brings us the next instalment from his forthcoming album. For C’EST BON he has enlisted the ample talents of Inja, with Illinformed handling the production. The track is taken from A Dog’s Dream, which is set for release on 27 September on Green Brick Records. The video was made by This & That Media.
Pleased to see the arrival of the first single from the upcoming album from Res One and Illinformed. People You Know features a tight guest spot from fellow Split Prophets member, Joey Paro, as well as a great video from This & That Media. Keep your eyes peeled for a few Bristol-based cameos too. A Dog’s Dream is due for release on 27 September on Res and Badhabitz new label, Green Brick Records.
Great track from Split Prophets dons Res One and Badhabitz, as they unite with Pupils of the Clock’s own Lazy Eyez for Stay Real. This is the debut track from the newly formed Green Brick Records and it’s the first of many, so definitely going to be keeping an eye on them. The video was made by Sektion Red.
Next month Bristol once again plays host to one of High Focus Record’s legendary parties. In the past the city has given a stage to their summer roadblocks and winter parties, but this time they will be one of two cities taking part in the label’s 8th birthday celebrations. Stepping away from their usual haunt of Lakota for this one, HF are headed to SWX in the centre of town. This means more room, better acoustics and a better sound system, which equals a better night for all involved. Continue reading “High Focus 8th Birthday Party: Competition Time”
New cut from Dutch Mob – aka Res One & Mistafire – following on from the success of their debut Passport EP last year. One Way Ticket is produced by Illinformed and the video was shot by This & That Media. Keep an ear out for more music coming from the duo this year. If you missed the EP, check out their site for downloads and more.
It was already in the mid-20’s when I rolled down to this year’s High Focus Block Party in Bristol and it was only going to get hotter, given the days running up to the event. Last year’s party had been a smash and this year looked set to at least rival it, if not surpass it. Doors opened at 2pm so I got down there at about 3pm and already had to deal with the huge queue that had formed; a teeming mass of the new generation of UK hip hop fans all fully loyal to the HF brand (and all of whom I’m pretty sure I was old enough to be their dad).

Another great track from the Dutch Mob EP that was released back in April. Little Brother sees Res on a solo tip, giving some words of advice to one of his youngers. Great concept and a wicked video from This & That Media, who are going from strength to strength with each new release. The track was produced by Illinformed. The Passport EP is available to buy now.
Brand new video from Split Prophets, lifted from last year’s ever dope Delta Bravo Kilo album. Roadhouse is produced by Badhabitz. The video was shot by Dfacer and the graff comes courtesy of Sace Gold. DBK is available now over on Bandcamp.
