New visual bliss from Old Children, as they release another single from their Push Start EP, that emerged this time last year. Once again Booda French and HPBLK are on mic duties, with King Kashmere on the beat. A supreme team up. The video was made by Honey JD. Push Start is available now via Louis Den.
Regular visitors to my blog might have noticed a lack of new content over recent weeks. Life unfortunately does have a habit of getting in the way, but it can’t keep a good blogger down for long, so consider this the first of a few fresh updates.
What better way to reignite the feed, than with the latest from friend of the blog, Booda French. Booda has been dropping sporadic gems over the last couple of years, but now he returns with a definite release on the horizon, in the form of his new LP, The Loser’s Victory Lap. Championship Rings is the latest leak from the album and sees the Ipswich vet teaming up with Jehst, over some nice production from Jaisu.
Booda and Jaisu previously collaborated on Fortune Cookies, which also features on a new 7″ vinyl release, alongside Championship Rings. The vinyl is available to pre-order now via Bandcamp, with the album set to follow shortly. Check below for the full track and keep an eye open for more news on the album coming soon.
Every time Dubbledge releases something fresh into the world, the UK rap scene quite rightly devours it because we are almost constantly fiendin’ for unheard material from one of the country’s most widely respected yet least prolific artists. So to be told that a whole Dubbledge album was en route, an album produced by the legendary Forest DLG, was enough to make me lose my shit.
Ten Toes Down was originally recorded a whopping 10 years ago, back when Forest was still Chemo, but for reasons unknown to this blog at least, it remained stashed away. But as the old saying goes, it’s better late than never, so please enjoy this 10 track assortment of beats and bars, which is at once as enlightening and entertaining as you would expect from an MC of Dubbledge’s standards. Ten Toes Down is out now on Potent Funk.
Returning a bit closer to home for this next post, with the news that CLBRKS and Kiina are rekindling their collaborative flame for Habits 2. Where I Am Is Not Important is the lead single from the upcoming album and leaves us safe in the knowledge that both parties are still killing it in their respective corners. More news on the full album coming soon. The video was made by Honey JD.
Next up we have a return joint from King Kashmere, which sees him teaming up with Alecs DeLarge again. This time the duo have delivered a new perspective on their previously released track, North Star, thanks to DeLarge’s Evil Mix. Once again, it’s Honey JD on video duties and the track is available to stream now from all the usual spots.
New year, new music as I bring you two fresh cuts from the High Focus roster. First up, the latest from Verbz, as he connects with producer, Nil Wan, for I Know. The video was made by Honey JD and the track is available now on all the usual streaming platforms.
Good to see the return of Moose Funk Squad, as they reunite for an unsurprisingly solid EP. National Geographic Shit continues in the same vaguely irreverent vein that has been a theme through all their projects, while still upheld by thoroughly engrossing raps and equally enticing production, the latter of which comes from Luca Brazi. An enjoyable listen overall and a much welcome breath of less serious air. You can check the video for 2One above, while the rest of the EP is available to explore below. Downloads are available via Broke Records.
Pleased to be able to bring you new music from Gawd Status. The duo have emerged from their hiatus, with two new offerings, including the Jehst-assisted, Severe Price. It’s backed with a Rhi remix of Messiah Hybrids, which originally appeared on the 2019 album, Firmamentum. You can listen to Severe Price below, with the remainder of the release, including instrumentals, available via Bandcamp.Continue reading “Gawd Status ft. Jehst: Severe Price”
New heat from the CMPND gang, as they deliver their latest single. Pick A Card features raps from the trio and production from Wundrop, along with a video courtesy of LookAt TV. The track is also available to stream from all the usual spots.
A fresh video from Datkid and Illinformed, as they continue to polish off the gems from their WAKMO album. Thorn in Your Side sees the duo teaming up with another duo – although they share a common partner in the shape of Illinformed – with a typically rowdy guest spot from Babylon Dead, WAKMO is out now on High Focus.
