D’Lyfa Reilly is the latest MC to join forces with Village Live Records, as the label gears up to release his new album. It’s produced in its entirety by fellow label mate, Aver, which is always a good sign, and as you can hear from the lead single, they have got a good thing going. Extra poignancy too, as this was the last album that was overseen by the late Joey Deez, who was a co-founder of Village Live alongside Doug aka Remulak. The video for Out of Darkness was made by Tarnish Vision. Time & Tide is due for release in the coming months, so more news on that soon.
A very strong start to Vulgatron’s (Foreign Beggars) solo venture as he unleashes his new track – Deadman. It’s a riotous collision of dubstep and grime, backed up with some hefty production from Mark The Beast and Nitepunk. The video was made by Tarnish Vision. Stay tuned for more from Vulgatron coming soon.
Pitch 92 has already been responsible for one of UK hip hop’s highlights this year, thanks to his superb 3rd Culture album. The album features an expertly curated collection of artists, including fellow Manny resident, DRS, who appears on Makes No Sense. The video for the track was released today and was made by Tarnish Vision. 3rd Culture is out now on High Focus.
Great video from the recently released Illaman EP, Give Us a Smile. Times of Change is produced by Norm Oddity, with a typically tight feature from DRS. The video was made by Tarnish Vision. The EP is out now on Potent Funk.
Nice cut from the recently released DRS album, From The Deep. It’s an album that somehow didn’t receive much fanfare, or at least not on my radar, despite DRS being one of the more popular names on the UK scene and the fact that the whole album is produced by Pitch 92. Serial Escapist is a good insight into the feel of the whole album, which you can hear for yourself in full below. The video was made by Tarnish Vision.

The track also features the distinctive talent of fellow Manny family member, LayFullStop, along with another striking video from Tarnish Vision. Travel Light is out now on First Word Records.
It’s been just over a year since we had a solo project from Black Josh, but for those of you fiendin’ out there, fear not cos the man is back with a new mixtape.
