Bisk is back with a bang as he prepares to take us all on a trip to Gutter City. The Swamp Harbour general has been steadily releasing solid project after solid project, laying waste to the idea that quality and quantity are mutually exclusive. Read the rest of this entry »

I got a message from Lee Scott a few nights ago, asking if I would like an exclusive preview of his new tape only project. He told me it was weird, really weird. I said I was definitely down. He sent me the audio and I pressed play, not really grasping how weird he meant. Read the rest of this entry »

Last year’s Attack the Monolith album from Mongrels was a highlight among listeners and critics alike. Kid Acne and Benjamin brought their unique styles together to form an album that harked back to years gone by, while looking directly towards the future. Now we have Attack the Megalith, which is a remix project featuring some of the most exciting producers from UK hip hop and beyond. Hashfinger, Morriarchi, Third Person Lurkin, Sam Zircon, Charlie Dark, Midfield General, Juga-Naut and King Kashmere, all step up to the plate, with a fresh polish for eight of the album’s original gems. The EP is out today and you can buy your copy here.

The start of April saw the release of one of the more intriguing projects of recent times. Curious Alice is an interpretation of the Lewis Carroll classic, told through the beats of some of the UK’s most innovative independent producers.

More dope from Bisk, who is up there with the most prolific MCs of the era thanks to the slew of projects he’s released over the past year or so. XXXX features his trademark raw drawl, with some nice production credits from the likes Drae Da Skimask, Broom Man, Sam Zircon and Bisk himself. The full project is available to stream below and you can download it over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

For those of you not in the know, Swamp Harbour is yet another cult within a cult, comprised of three of Blah’s finest. Stinkin Slumrok, Bisk and Sam Zircon have been working together under the SH banner for a while now, but we haven’t had an official release as yet. It looks like that is going to change though as this track was released last week, along with the news that a Swamp Harbour album is on the way. No Response also features DOS member Jack Danz.

More new music from Bisk, who is arguably one of the most prolific UK MCs, having released no less than five solo projects since 2016. This time he hooks up with Drae Da Skimask for Dntworry/No Chill. His debut LP, Gutter City, is out next week.

I like to think I have my finger relatively on the pulse when it comes to UK rap, but a few releases somehow pass me by, like this new LP from SonnyJim & Sleaze. This is the follow up to their 2011 Work in Mnemonics EP. Sleaze is sadly residing at Her Majesty’s pleasure at the moment, but Sonny had made a promise that this project would see the light of day and he stuck to his word. Read the rest of this entry »

Last week finally saw the release of Lee Scott’s new album, Nice Swan. In my opinion it contains some of his strongest material to date and the whole retrospective feel is refreshing, as demonstrated in the first video which came out yesterday on Daily Motion. Sam Zircon on the beat. Nice Swan is available to buy now from all the usual spots. I was lucky enough to interview Lee this week, so stay tuned for that.

A fresh track from the Sleazy one and Swamp Harbour resident Sam Zircon emerged last night. And very nice it sounds too. You can stream it below to hear for yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
