Datkid & Illinformed: Thick Lip / One Way Or Another

Datkid & Skinzmann: Sleepless in Pinhoe (Stream)

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.

Stay tuned for more from Datkid coming soon.

Strange U: Arm Leg

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.

Morriarchi ft. Jack Danz: River Path

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.

Confucius MC ft. Sonnyjim, Verbz & Jehst: Lanterns (Official Video)

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.
