Skrabl: Wood for the Trees (Stream)

The release of Skrabl’s latest album, Wood for the Trees, is a notable occasion on two counts. Firstly it’s the debut release for the newly formed Wordplay Records and secondly, the album signifies a change in Skrabl’s sound. He’s still very much the same MC in terms of skillful wordplay and dexterity, but the overall production has taken a different turn with elements of trap creeping into certain tracks, as well as a general air of new wave throughout the whole project.
Which is all fine by me because if you can do something well and it still sounds banging, then go for it. I’m all for artists exploring new avenues in terms of defying their usual, often self-imposed, artistic restrictions. The production is handled in full by fellow TrollGang representative, Oozhe, and save from a solo feature from final TG member, Verses Bang, the rest of the album allows Skrabl to take centre stage and flourish. Wood for the Trees is available to stream below and you can cop physicals/downloads over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Skrabl: Wood for the Trees (Stream)”

Keep an ear out for a lot more music coming from the TG boys real soon.

Verses Bang: In The Nude Interlude

New music from Verses Bang and his recently released Dressed to Kill… Myself project. I’ve been waiting a minute to hear it, but it was all worth it, as one of the more unique characters in UK rap brings his brand back to the masses. In The Nude Interlude is produced by regular collaborator, Oozhe, who orchestrated the beats on the whole project. Dressed To Kill… Myself is out now on all the usual platforms.
