Three in one on the latest from the In The Balance family, as they bless us with another video from their recent compilation. On Lightning Bolt, Verb T, Rye Shabby and G00SE go back to back over a heavy, drum driven beat from fellow labelmates, Urban Click. In The Balance Vol. 1 is out now.

I remember first hearing Verb T rap when his track Showbitchness was included on a Low Life Records compilation, back in 2003. Since then he has been a constant in my relationship with UK hip hop, thanks to his association with High Focus, most notably as part of The Four Owls, as well as a string of projects with the likes of Pitch 92 and Illinformed. I spoke with him recently about a number of things including maintaining his longevity, setting up his own label and his ongoing struggles with Crohn’s Disease.
Verb T returns with some new music to help us beat the midweek blues. For You features fellow label mate, Moreone, with production from Urban Click. The video was made by Parallel Media. If you’re in Bristol this Friday, head down to The Exchange to catch an In The Balance showcase, featuring Verbs, Moreone, Rye Shabby, G00SE, Chillman and Sam Krats. Tickets are available here.
More dope from the Slovenian production duo, as they peel off another cut with label head, Verb T. Doorway is taken from their Bread Slices album, which is out now on In The Balance Records.
Slovenian production trio Urban Click just released their new beat tape, which includes two bonus vocal tracks. One features fellow label mate, Rye Shabby and the other one features label head, Verb T. The latter just got itself a new video to celebrate the release, which was made by one of the click – Goran Gambiroža. Bread Slices is available to download now on In the Balance Records.
