On this fine Sunday afternoon, I am very pleased to bring you the first showing of the brand new video from Jester Jacobs and Formz. They released a tasty little EP last year, as a sort of amuse bouche for the album they’ve been working on together, which managed to deliver the perfect blend of comedy and hip hop. Get Your Shit Together is a perfect example of that formula, with Jacobs dropping some knowledge about that most rap related topic of all, admin, while Formz’s piano laced production provides the ideal backdrop. You can watch the video above and the State Of The Art EP is available now via Bandcamp.
I am very pleased to announce the arrival of new music from Jester Jacobs, the first material we’ve heard from him since he turned his focus towards his increasingly successful stand-up career. I think the last project that surfaced, was his Truffle Barons collaboration with Luca Brazi, back in 2016, until today and the release of his latest EP.
End your day the gritty way, with the latest video from Sniff and Formz, as the duo continue the run of dirty gems from their recent 100 Vices project. Westway Marina is the seventh step in their guide to neverending misery and features a suitably subdued but impactful verse from Bisk. 100 Vices is out now on Shadow Player Records.
New release from Sniff as he teams up with the always on point, Formz, for 100 Vices. The EP is billed as a seven step plan to unhappiness, with Sniff as our narrator – the perfect trigger for that Friday feeling. As well as Sniff, there are also contributions from Stinkin Slumrok and Bisk. 100 Vices can be heard in full below, with downloads available via Shadow Player Records. Keep an ear out for more music from Sniff and Formz coming later this year. Continue reading “Sniff x Formz: 100 Vices (Stream)”
Still playing catch up after the festive season, today I’ve got more new music to kick off your week with, starting with the latest EP from UK rap legend, Mongo. The Mud Fam OG has returned to the fore with a five track EP, which takes on a more emotional tone than some of his older fans may be expecting (the clue’s in the title). He didn’t come alone either, as The Feels sees Mongo drafting in some notable homegrown names to assist him. Greg Blackman makes two appearances, lending his weighty vocals to Thankful and 2GD4EM, while the EP is closed off with a little help from Sniff and CW Jones on the previously released single, Cemetery Road. The production comes from Jonny Capicola, LRD, SIM and Formz. You can stream The Feels below, with downloads available via Shadow Player Records. Continue reading “Mongo: The Feels EP (Stream)”
Sniff hits us with a new track, reigniting the UK scene’s desire for a solo album from the 616 affiliate. This time he teams up with producer, Sinner, resulting in a typically strong and sombre track. Pain is out now on Shadow Player Records and you can stream it below. Continue reading “Sniff: Pain”
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.
