The new album from Sylla B was released on Friday and marks a honing of skills for the Bristol-based MC. His last few releases have all demonstrated a growth in confidence and penmanship, leaving The Walls Have Eyes feeling like the culmination of all that progress. Straight up grime bangers sit next to more thought-provoking tracks, with the variety of styles strengthened by Sylla’s production choices. There are beats from Oozhe, xeno, DROG Beats, Moody Lew, Just Sayin, Yung Toro and sam.makes.beats, along with features from Toro, Gabriel Waves, Moody Lew and Solo Jane. This is a very strong release from an MC whose talent refuses to let him go unnoticed and one who’s only going to keep getting better. You can stream the album in full below and downloads are available from Bandcamp.

New solo release from Gus Stash, as he delivers his Barely Soba EP.
