A beast of a posse cut here, masterminded by Bristol-based producer, Sam Krats. For the aptly titled, Culture, Krats has brought together legends from across the Atlantic, thanks to a selection of homegrown talent and a guest spot from Juice Crew veteran, Craig G. Raps from this side of the water are provided by MysDiggi, Gee Bag, Ramson Badbonez and Phoenix Da Icefire, as well as some technical assistance from Jazz T. The vinyl edition also features a heavy remix courtesy of Da Beatminerz. You can find more info on that via Revorg Records.
Another perfectly crafted lampooning session here from Big Toast and 184, as they release the next video from their new album. This time it’s capitalism’s cheerleaders who are in the firing line, the sort of high-end brand junkies who judge everything by its expense or worth, including you and your miserable existence. Who Shit in the Sandpit? was released in full last week and is now available to download/stream via Revorg Records. Plenty of physicals available too.
Important music from the Revorg camp, as Big Toast and 184 unite once more to stick it to the more morally challenged people of his benighted isle. This is England is the lead single from the album, and features a nice appearance from Breezy Lee, one of three from her on the full LP. The superbly titled, Who Shit In The Sandpit, is due for release on 23 October. The video for This is England was made by The Strange Neighbour.
Big tune here from Bristol-based producer, Sam Krats, as he rounds up some more notable names for his latest single. On 360, Krats has drafted in Boston legend, Edo.G, everyone’s favourite Dirty Rotten Scoundrel, Jeru the Damaja, and Artifacts OG, El Da Sensei, for a triumvirate of dope. The track is all tied up nicely with some cuts from Bristol turntable stalwart, DJ Rogue. The single is out now on Revorg Records, with instrumental and acapella versions available on the download.

Following on from last year’s Prolefeed collab, Big Toast and 184 have reunited for another joint venture which is due to surface in the autumn. F.W.L. is our first taster from the project and it includes a welcome feature from The Strange Neighbour. More news on the album, Who Shit in the Sandpit, as and when I have it.
New music from the Revorg camp, as Oliver Sudden and Downstroke put the wheels in motion for their upcoming EP release. Stylin’ is the lead single from the project and features Sudden delivering an ode to looking fly, with Downstroke’s production giving it the classic feel it deserves thanks to some tight drum loops and precision cuts. The Stylin’ 2020 EP is due for release on 13 March.
The Tuff Boyz are back with a new video as they continue to build the anticipation and intrigue for their forthcoming album. If you want to know what to expect from the video, imagine if Sam Peckinpah directed an episode of Phoenix Nights and you’ll be on the right track. It also features an array of cameos from the Cypher Lounge family, so keep your eyes peeled. Bat Night is produced by Oliver Sudden and Tizer. Pre-orders for the album are available now via Revorg Records.
To coincide with the release of the Breaking Bad film sequel, El Camino, Strange Neighbour is dropping a remix version of his 2014 Heisenberg EP. It looks set to be a strong selection judging by the first leak – a reworking of the Let’s Fly posse cut, from the legendary Chemo. The track features a great line-up, with Bristol sons Datkid and Sirplus, joining forces with Jack Diggs and Oliver Sudden, all backed up with some expert cuts from Sammy B-Side. The full project is due for release at the end of the month on Revorg Records.
Revorg Records back at it with another project on the horizon, as Strange Neighbour and Big Toast combine to form Tuff Boyz. As the name might suggest and if you’re familiar with their usual approach, this is not for people who take themselves too seriously, but don’t write it off as comedy rap as the skill levels are still high. Excellent production from Oliver Sudden as usual. Their album, Bat Night, is due for release soon.
