CMPND ft. Verbz: Paraphrase

Following on from a triumphant set at the High Focus Block Party on Saturday, CMPND bless us with a brand new video as they continue to build the hype for their debut LP. Paraphrase is the third track to emerge since the crew announced their signing to HF and sees the trio reuniting with long-term friend and collaborator, Verbz. The track is produced by Wundrop and the video was made by This & That Media.

Baileys Brown ft. Datkid & Dabbla: Gimme

Another huge track from Baileys Brown as the release date for his solo album draws ever nearer. This time round, the Bristol producer has drafted in his old accomplice, Datkid, as well as his label-mate, Dabbla, with the trio going off in pursuit of that elusive cash money. And once again it’s another stunning visual accomplishment from This & That Media (keep your eyes peeled for plenty of UKHH related cameos too). The album, Still Fresh, is due for release on 26 July on Potent Funk.

CMPND: Flight 370

Yesterday CMPND served up another taster from their forthcoming full-length project, as they continue to build on the much warranted hype. As usual it’s Wundrop on the beat and vocals, as well as more exemplary mic work from Vitamin G and Kemastry. The video was made by This & That Media. You can stream Flight 370 on all the usual platforms.

Datkid & Leaf Dog: Cook Book + Album Stream

Friday saw the release of what will no doubt be one of the rawest albums of 2019, courtesy of Datkid and Leaf Dog, along with the next video from the project, Cook Book. The video was made by This & That Media. Confessions of a Crudlord is available now on High Focus and you can stream it in full below. Continue reading “Datkid & Leaf Dog: Cook Book + Album Stream”

CMPND: Whatuplayin@

High Focus’s latest signing kick off their residency with a brand new video for Whatuplayin@. If you don’t know, CMPND consists of MCs Kemastry, Vitamin G and Wundrop, who also handles production. Whatuplayin@ is a grimy little intro to the crew and a good indicator of things to come. The video was made by This & That Media.

Datkid & Leaf Dog ft. Conway: Eyes

As anticipation grows for the new Datkid album, today saw the release of the second video from the project. Eyes features Griselda heavyweight, Conway, as well as a verse from the album’s sole producer, Leaf Dog. The video was made by This & That Media. Confessions Of A Crudlord is coming soon on High Focus.

Ronnie Bosh: 100%

Very pleased to see this drop into my various timelines this morning – a solo single from one of my favourite MCs, Ronnie Bosh. Produced by fellow SMB compadre, Dirty Dike, I am hoping this is a sign that we have a full-length solo effort on the way; something that has been notably absent from the UK scene for a while. The video was made by This & That Media.

Ramson Badbonez: Weirdos + Album Stream

Today sees the release of the latest album from veteran mic killer, Ramson Badbonez and to celebrate the occasion, High Focus have also released a new video. Weirdos is produced by Illinformed and comes with a fear & loathing style video, featuring a whole bunch of distorted faces (including mine), courtesy of the always on point, This & That Media. Mic Day The 13th is available now over at the High Focus store and you can stream the full thing below. Continue reading “Ramson Badbonez: Weirdos + Album Stream”
