Fresh visual stimulation from the Potent Funk family, as Dabbla and Sumgii reveal the latest video from their recent Nobody LP. Once again, it’s This & That Media who are the brains behind the video, which features cameos from a selection of perhaps familiar faces, including Jester Jacobs and Alenee Aisha. Nobody is out now on all the usual platforms, with physicals available via Potent Funk.
Huge remix here from Sumgii, as he takes on the already formidable Telemachus track, Wickedest Ting, which is lifted from the producer’s most recent album. The track also features a typically powerful appearance from Killa P. The original track can be found on Boring & Weird Historical Music, which is out now on High Focus. The remix is also available to stream/download from the usual spots.
New visual antics from Dabbla and Sumgii, as they celebrate the release of their new album with a fresh video. Nobody is the titular track, as well as the opener, and as you will hear the duo kick things off with a bass-heavy bang. I’ve got a proper review coming in The Wire next month, but just know that for my money this is Dabbla’s strongest work to date, and when he’s alongside a producer he knows that well and the producer is as talented as Sumgii is, then you’re already looking at a recipe for success, which is easily surpassed on Nobody. The tense, bloodthirsty visuals come courtesy of This & That Media. Nobody is out now on Potent Funk and you can stream it in full below.

More devilish antics from Cult Mountain, as they reunite to bring us their latest EP. Pitch Fork is the first single, with the video courtesy of Siim Parisoo. Cult Mountain 2.5 is out in full today.
If you go down to the woods today, you might stumble upon some strange scenes, as Dabbla unveils the lead single from his forthcoming collab with Sumgii. Having known each other for years and worked on music together for almost as long, these are two artists who would find it virtually impossible to put out a dud on their solo efforts, let alone when they join forces like this. Shimmy is a good intro to their twisted, glitchy world, accompanied by some acid-tinged visuals with Dabbla channelling the spirit of the good Dr Gonzo. The video was made by This & That Media. Nobody is due for release next month on Potent Funk.
Sumgii continues his recent run of wins, with a new single on Swamp81. For Wanawake, the Cult Mountain producer has brought in the inimitable flows of Blah resident, Nah Eeto, as he breathes new life into what was originally the first verse she ever recorded. Digital and vinyl editions are also available, with a Loefah remix featured on the latter.
Not content with giving us a surprise album at the end of 2019, Lee Scott then continued his gift giving with a brand new EP, which he released exclusively to Blah Cult Members on Christmas Day. The EP saw its full release on Friday, which means that us mere mortals can now savour the joys of what is another great project from arguably one of the most prolific artists of the moment. The ffsman EP is a features bonanza, with the Cult Mountain rapper teaming up with a cross-generational list of MCs, including YNR head honcho, Jehst, rising London star, CLBRKS, and new Potent Funk family member, Dream Mclean. The production credits are just as strong, with the likes of Morriarchi, dylantheinfamous, Sumgii and Sam Zircon, all bringing their respective sounds to the mix. The EP is available to stream/download now and you can also hear it in full below. Continue reading “Lee Scott: ffsman ep (Stream)”
Yellow x Green is the latest track to be taken from the SUPERGANG project, which saw its release back in May, courtesy of Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Sniff and Sumgii. This particular track features Lee and Sniff, as they deliver an ode to the halcyon days of Jobcentre Plus and surviving on the dole. The video was made by RSLBM. SUPERGANG is out now on Blah. Continue reading “Lee Scott x Sniff: Yellow x Green”
Sumgii has long been a man who eschews the restrictions that come with placing your music within a specific genre. His label, Potent Funk, have been pushing what they call that ‘hybrid rap shit’ for years, and his production career has seen him crossing from genre to genre, for a whole range of different artists. Now he’s back with, Who Is Genre Anyway, a new solo EP that perfectly encapsulates all the positives that come from simply making the music you want to make. Successfully blending together elements from a whole wealth of different styles and genres, the EP is the product of a producer not only at the top of his game, but also one totally at ease within his surroundings. Who Is Genre Anyway is out now on Swamp 81.
All-round production don, Sumgii, has a new EP en route, on the infamous Swamp81 label. Sumgii has long been one of my favourite producers and so I thought I’d share this new playlist, featuring some of his greatest beats to date. The playlist features audible gold from the likes of Cult Mountain, Jam Baxter, Lee Scott, Milkavelli and Dabbla. There is also an instrumental version too, which you can find here. It should get you into just the right mood for the EP, which is due for release very soon. More info to follow.
