High Focus recently announced the official digital release of King Kashmere’s 2006 album, In The Hour Of Chaos. Originally released on Receptor Records, the album further cemented Kashmere’s position as one of the UK’s best, thanks in part to storytelling raps like Veronica R.I.P. Just in time for Halloween, it tells the story of a doomed love affair between Kashmere and a visitor from the spirit realm. The track was produced by the man FKA as Chemo. In The Hour Of Chaos is available now via the usual platforms.
A beast of a posse cut here, masterminded by Bristol-based producer, Sam Krats. For the aptly titled, Culture, Krats has brought together legends from across the Atlantic, thanks to a selection of homegrown talent and a guest spot from Juice Crew veteran, Craig G. Raps from this side of the water are provided by MysDiggi, Gee Bag, Ramson Badbonez and Phoenix Da Icefire, as well as some technical assistance from Jazz T. The vinyl edition also features a heavy remix courtesy of Da Beatminerz. You can find more info on that via Revorg Records.

I somehow let this one slip through the gaps last month, but better late than never and it definitely hasn’t lost any of its appeal in the interim. Wish Master continues to position himself as one of the most prolific and consistent MCs of his generation, with another strong collaboration, this time alongside the equally prolific, Illinformed. Coldharbour Tales is a distinctly Bristolian album, from the title itself to the guest stars that Wish and Illinformed have enlisted for the event. Features from the likes of Axel Holy, Upfront, Datkid, Eric the Red and Flying Monk, keep the Bristol flag flying, as well as appearances from Verb T and Gee Bag, which push beyond the city walls. You can experience a taste of the album for yourself below, then head to Bandcamp for all your digital and physical needs.Continue reading “Wish Master x Illinformed: Coldharbour Tales (Stream)”

Pitch 92 continues to deliver the goods from his latest album, with the release of another solid single.
