Tomorrow sees the release of the new collaborative project from Confucius MC and Morriarchi. Known collectively as Old Paradice, the duo have combined their ample individual talents into one refined rap entity, which sits in its own niche thanks to a sound and style reminiscent of days past, while keeping a steady finger on the pulse of the new wave.

We have already been treated to a couple of samples from The Last Resort, but the full project is going to surpass those expectations as they deliver songs with solid features from both Violet Springs and Blu.
I am also pleased to be able to announce that the EP will be available on limited edition cassette (as pictured), which comes complete with stickers and a mini personalised Old Paradice Polaroid. Pre-orders for all of this is available over on Bandcamp and you can stream the EP below. Read the rest of this entry »

Ramson Badbonez joins forces with Illinformed for Sticks & Stones, the lead single from his forthcoming album. Mic Day 13th is due for release on 31 January on High Focus.

More Manchester music for your eyes and ears, courtesy of The Bluntskins and their new lucha libre-inspired video. When The Rain Goes is produced by Pro P, with vocals from Bill Sykes, Cheech and Martin Connor. Downloads are available via Bandcamp.

Strong start to Skrabl’s new LP, as he releases the first video from the project. Wood For The Trees is the title track and is produced by fellow TROLLGANG member, Oozhe. The album is due for release on 25 January, on TG’s new label home, Wordplay Records.

New DIY video from Lunar C, as he knocks up some homemade visuals for Rise. The track is produced by HashFinger and is lifted from last year’s triumphant Dirtbrain album.

Great track from Manchester crew, Voodoo Black, as they kick off the year with Gettin Dum. Dubbul O, Ellis Meade and Sparkz take the tempo up to 140, demonstrating their shared dexterity in the booth, with Cutterz production hitting the right notes as standard. Lots more to come from Voodoo Black this year, so keep those eyes peeled.

Parallax starts off his year the right way, with a great track called In Doubt For Too Long. It’s accompanied by a brilliant video too, courtesy of This & That Media, who are easily my favourite videographers in the game right now. Some of the effects in this are blinding. The track is self-produced and is lifted from Parallax’s recent album, Auditory Vision, which is available to buy now via Bandcamp.

Slard returns with the second track from his upcoming EP, accompanied by a nice graff vid. Train Of Thought is produced by Joel-Op, who is at the helm for the whole EP. More news on that project coming soon.

Still playing catch up after the festive season, today I’ve got more new music to kick off your week with, starting with the latest EP from UK rap legend, Mongo. The Mud Fam OG has returned to the fore with a five track EP, which takes on a more emotional tone than some of his older fans may be expecting (the clue’s in the title). He didn’t come alone either, as The Feels sees Mongo drafting in some notable homegrown names to assist him. Greg Blackman makes two appearances, lending his weighty vocals to Thankful and 2GD4EM, while the EP is closed off with a little help from Sniff and CW Jones on the previously released single, Cemetery Road. The production comes from Jonny Capicola, LRD, SIM and Formz. You can stream The Feels below, with downloads available via Shadow Player Records. Read the rest of this entry »

Fresh monochrome visuals for one of my favourite tracks from Jam Baxter’s recent album, as High Focus release the new video for Bodyslam. The track sees Baxter uniting once again with frequent lab partner, Chemo, as well as AboveGround who brings his usual skill set to the proceedings. The Touching Scenes album is available now from the High Focus store.
