Absorbing work here from Jason Goldwatch and The Alchemist, as they blend archive footage and original music to create this experimental short film. According to the blurb, all the music was produced by Alchemist back in 2014 and it is available now as an accompanying release.
Two for one from Armand Hammer and The Alchemist, as they round off another successful year with a double drop of videos. Robert Moses and God’s Feet are both taken from the trio’s universally acclaimed album, Haram, and the films were directed by regular collaborator, Joseph. Keep an eye out for a split second of Bristol footage in the Robert Moses video. Haram is out now via Backwoodz Studioz.
Another week, another cut from the latest Alchemist EP. This Thing of Ours Pt. 2 features a Detroit-heavy line up, including this tight burst of dope from Zelooperz. The full EP is out now on ALC Records.
Last week The Alchemist continued the successes of his This Thing of Ours EP, with a follow up project that formed the second part of the series. The latest EP carries on the tradition of uplifting the voices of the moment, thanks to some superb features from Bruiser Brigade, Zelooperz, Mavi, MIKE and Vince Staples. There is also a new video for the MIKE track, Lossless, which you can watch above. The remainder of the EP can be heard at all your favourite spots.
The Alchemist looks set to continue the joys of This Things of Ours Vol. 1, with the second instalment from the series. According to Alc, while the first release was set in the daytime, this new EP will be a distinctly nighttime sound, as demonstrated on the first single. On Miracle Baby, the producer has drafted in Mavi, who delivers a particularly engrossing feature, setting the scene for the rest of the EP. This Thing of Ours Vol. 2 is due for release on 8 October.
Another glorious video from Armand Hammer and The Alchemist, this time for the KAYANA assisted track, Black Sunlight. The video continues the psychedelic animation vibes of Stonefruit and features, in no particular order or preference, woods as an astronaut, Alchemist as a airline pilot and ELUCID looking very happy in a monster truck. The drawings and animation were created by Shane Ingersoll. Haram is out now on Backwoodz Studioz.
Another full bodied reminder of why Pink Siifu is one of the best artists doing their thing right now, with the arrival of his latest album. GUMBO’! follows on from Siifu’s two brilliant projects with Fly Anakin, as he shifts back into solo mode, but with an abundance of guests in tow. There’s a nice variety of flavours on offer too, from more energised joints like Wayans Bros., to the smooth goodness of tracks like the Alchemist-produced, Living Proof (Family). Literally too many contributing artists to list here, but you can experience the full breadth of the project below, then check Bandcamp for downloads and more info.Continue reading “Pink Siifu: GUMBO’!

More refined ruggedness from Boldy James and The Alchemist, as they deliver a bonus cut from their forthcoming Bo Jackson LP. The video was made by Alibey Topal.
Boldy James and Alchemist reunite, following on from the triumphs that surrounded last year’s The Price of Tea in China. First 48 Freestyle is the lead single from their forthcoming project, Bo Jackson, and features Boldy rapping for a solid three minutes with no hook. It’s a beautiful thing.
Another treat for Armand Hammers fans this week, as we saw the release of the latest video from their Alchemist produced masterpiece, HARAM. It arrives in the same week that the trio unveiled their experimental film, alongside regular AH artistic collaborator, Joseph Mault, with both releases featuring accompaniments from Earl Sweatshirt. Earl sounds as good as ever on Falling Out the Sky, with woods and ELUCID reaching their usual absorbing heights in his wake. HARAM is out now on Backwoodz Studioz.
