As the release date for the new Verb T and Pitch 92 album draws ever closer, High Focus yesterday unveiled their latest video, featuring a lot of undead co-stars. The album, A Question Of Time, is due for release on 30 August. The video for Tragedy & Comedy was made by Storyboard Visuals.

Check the next offering from the In The Balance team as they release the video for Another Time by Verb T and Moreone. The track is produced by Taube and it’s lifted from the In The Balance Vol. 1 compilation which is out now.

If you read my recent interview with Verb T, you will know that the Four Owls MC has another album on the way with Pitch 92, following on from their superb 2017 release, Good Evening. On Cold Case the duo draft in the amply talented, TrueMendous and in the process have created a very strong start to the new LP. Question Of Time is due for release at the end of August on High Focus.

Nice selection of tracks from In The Balance, featuring the wealth of talent that makes up their current roster. Regular visitors to the blog will most likely be familiar with some of the tracks already, but having them all compiled together in one place is a great reminder of just how much quality music the label has been responsible for since its inception back in 2015.

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.

Another blinding debut release right here, as Manchester-based producer, Pitch 92, drops his highly anticipated 3rd Culture album. It’s a debut for a producer who has long been a part of the UK scene, making a name for himself off the back of a string of solid collaborations alongside a number of artists including Verb T and more recently, DRS. He released his Lost in Space EP on High Focus last year to critical acclaim, but now he takes things up to new heights with this full-length project. Read the rest of this entry »

New album on the horizon from Pitch 92 and he’s kicking it off in style with the lead single. Humanoid features Verb T, Kashmere and MysDiggi, unbelievably marking the first time that Kash and Mys have appeared on a track together. The album, 3rd Culture, is out on High Focus on 28 February.
