Wish Master x Illinformed: Coldharbour Tales (Stream)

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.

Verb T & Illinformed: Blind Faith

More good news from the High Focus camp with the announcement that Verb T and Illinformed have been working on new music together. They have already given us two superb collaborative albums, including last year’s The Land of the Foggy Skies, and now it looks like they’re set to continue the trend with a third release, following on from the arrival of a new single, Blind Faith. You can check the video for the track above and keep your eyes peeled for more new music coming soon.

Baileys Brown: An EP (Stream)

Earlier this month, Bristol producer Baileys Brown treated us to the next release from his extensive catalogue. An EP takes things on a more soulful turn than his work with say DEDW8 or his rap alter-ego, Axel Holy, but if you know Brown’s work you’ll also know it’s definitely not new territory for him. And we’re not just talking in terms of the production, but also thanks to the features, which include contributions from Maddy, Marie Lister and Bukky, as well as a single rap appearance from Verb T. You can test the EP out for yourself below, with downloads available over on Bandcamp.

Verb T & Illinformed: New Paths

Brand new video from Verb T and Illinformed, as they continue to set the mood for their new album. It’s been five years since their first collaboration was brought into this world, an album which still sits proudly in both their back catalogues, leading to a lot of justified anticipation for their sophomore effort.

Verb T & Illinformed: Rotten Luck

Fans of Verb T and Illinformed’s 2015 collaboration, The Man With The Foggy Eyes, will no doubt be pleased to hear that they have a new project on the way. Rotten Luck is our first taster and the duo seem to have lost none of the combined mite that made them a firm favourite after their last album was given life. The video was made by Honey JD. More news on the album soon.
