In my seemingly endless game of catch-up, I’m shining a light on the latest from Tom Caruana, which surfaced back in March. Thanks to Tom’s dedication to his craft and his flawless ear for pairing rappers and beats, you already know that any release he puts his name to is going to be praiseworthy before you even press play. Brewing Up carries on that long-standing tradition, thanks to another selection of finely crafted production gems and an impressive line-up of featured artists from across the UK. The list is long but to give you an idea of the pedigree of rappers involved, there are tracks with Melanin 9, Lunar C, Juga-Naut, MysDiggi, Scorzayzee and Skuff, to name but a few. You can get a taste of the whole project for yourself below and then head over to Bandcamp to cop a download, or one of the physical formats that are available.Continue reading “Tom Caruana: Brewing Up (Stream)”
As I mentioned last week, Farma Beats has been working on a new album and now we get to indulge ourselves in its full splendour, following its official release yesterday. Featuring a strong list of MCs from both the UK and the US, The Sentimental Alien is built on some of Farma’s strongest production to date and the calibre of the beats has enticed the guests involved to bring their best pen game to the project.
There are features from Lee Scott, Salar, Anyway Tha God, Smellington Piff, Remus, Flashius Clayton, Dirty Dike, Skuff and a whole load more. You can stream the album below and you can download it over on Bandcamp, where you can also find a bit more background information on how it all came to be.

Got a treat for you today: the new video for Skuff’s track “Darkside”. It’s produced by Bee 109 and taken from his heavily dope “Destroy Everything” LP. Continue reading “Skuff “Darkside””
One of the only saving graces of staying in on a Saturday night is that you get first dibs on any new music that’s released. Admittedly that doesn’t happen very often, but tonight saw the release of Skuff’s new mixtape “Smash Anything”. Continue reading “Skuff “Smash Anything””
