The crud is thick on this new release from Datkid, which sees him teaming up with Illinformed for a double whammy of unadulterated street stories. The mini-movie that accompanies the tracks was made by Honey JD. Fat Lip and One Way or Another are both available now via High Focus.
The long-awaited collaboration from Datkid and Skinzmann was finally given life this week. Sleepless in Pinhoe is the perfect partnership, with Datty’s mettlesome and often brutally honest lyricism, sitting comfortably atop Skinzmann’s suitably rowdy production. Features come from the usual suspects, including Axel Holy, Wish Master and Wyatt Earp. You can catch a preview below and then head to the Split Prophets Bandcamp to cop a download. Stay tuned for more from Datkid coming soon.Continue reading “Datkid & Skinzmann: Sleepless in Pinhoe (Stream)”
Another album to look forward to is the latest from DJ Format, which includes the most recent single, Brainstorm. It’s a soulful, sample-heavy track that encapsulates all the sucessful elements that have made Format one of the more enduring producers of the last 20 years. Devil’s Workshop is due for release on Friday.Continue reading “DJ Format: Brainstorm”
Little Simz makes a typically strong return with her first new music since last year’s Drop 6 EP. Introvert is produced by Inflo and is the lead single from Simz’s forthcoming album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, which is due for release on 3 September.
Another beautiful cut from Village Live’s Live & Direct series, as Lost Loops delivers the luxuriously laid-back and jazz fuelled, Velvet Smoke. If you want to catch up with the whole series, you can find the label’s playlist on Spotify.
More new music for your Friday, with the latest from Confucius MC and the lead up to his new solo album. War & Peace is the second single to be lifted from the album, which features full production from Keor Meteor. The video was made by Honey JD and Bee Graphics. The track is available to download now, with the album due for release shortly via YNR Productions.
A fresh drop from Twizzy, as he gets us in the mood for his forthcoming album with this Chillman produced cut. Truth also features a tight appearance from fellow Bristol MC, Komposa, who has been enjoying a nice run recently. The video was made by Oscar Barriball.
More new music from Strange U, as they deliver the second part of their new 7″. Arm Leg follows on from Maybe, which surfaced earlier this month, and combines the same murky production and bursts of vocal distortion that have elevated them to become one of High Focus’s most popular acts. And quite right too, as they are formed from the combined force of two established UKHH veterans – King Kashmere and Dr Zygote. The 7″ vinyl is available to pre-order now and features artwork from that mischievous collage maker, Matt Littler.
Moody brilliance here, as Morriarchi celebrates the release of his latest project with a brand new video. River Path sees the Group BraCil producer teaming up with Jack Danz, who you realise is the perfect fit for the track as soon as his vocals crackle into life. The track is lifted from Geography of Peace, which is out now on both digital and cassette.
There is now an official video for the latest single from Confucius MC. The track was released a few weeks ago, alongside a lyric video, but now the YNR MC has returned with a suitably slick video, shot in the lantern laden streets of London’s Chinatown. The track is produced by Keor Meteor and Jehst, and also features verses from Sonnyjim, Verbz and Jehst. The video was made by Bee Graphics.
