The long-awaited collaboration from Datkid and Skinzmann was finally given life this week. Sleepless in Pinhoe is the perfect partnership, with Datty’s mettlesome and often brutally honest lyricism, sitting comfortably atop Skinzmann’s suitably rowdy production. Features come from the usual suspects, including Axel Holy, Wish Master and Wyatt Earp. You can catch a preview below and then head to the Split Prophets Bandcamp to cop a download. Stay tuned for more from Datkid coming soon.Continue reading “Datkid & Skinzmann: Sleepless in Pinhoe (Stream)”
Something a little closer to home now, thanks to Wish Master and Hozay, who recently teamed up to create A Beautiful Mess. Fully Loaded is one of the joints to be taken from the EP, which also boasts features from Axel Holy, Matey Boy and Eto. It’s out now on Official Recordings.
Struggling to keep up with the flurry of releases from Village Live, as they continue to gift us gems from their new compilation album, Village Live is Five, but had to share this new video from some of my favourites. Bristol very much in the building, with Ded Tebiase reigniting old successes as he joins forces with Axel Holy once more, along with Wish Master and some supreme cuts from DJ Madhandz. The video was made by Max Kelan Pearce Productions. Village Live is Five is available to pre-order now.
A glimpse at Wish Master through the ages, as the Bristol MC unveils his latest video, starring his past, present and potential future selves. Write Pages is the next song to be lifted from Wish’s most recent album, THE BULL, and features production from Van Dam. The album is out now via Official Recordings.
Wish Master delivers the latest video from his most recent album, The BULL, which features a typically complementary appearance from CW Jones. Don’t Waste Time is produced by Chima and the video was made by Monsta. The album is out now via Official Recordings.
New music here from Wish Master as he releases his latest album, The Bull. Following on from the Ral Duke produced intro which emerged the other week, production is varied throughout thanks to contributions from a few unfamiliar names (to me anyway), including Van Dam, Chimera and Niya, as well as the always on point, Hozay. Only two guests involved, with CW Jones lending his vocals to Don’t Waste Time and fellow OR artist, Jordan Nathaniel, dropping in on a few tracks. You can hear the whole project below, with downloads available via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Wish Master: The Bull (Stream)”
New music from Wish Master as he prepares to hit us with one of the multiple projects he’s currently sitting on. The man really is a machine and another one who calls bullshit on the quality over quantity rule; why not both? THE BULL Intro is our first taster from the album and features some nice jazzy production from Ral Duke, who also provided the artwork for the video, which was made by Mr Sleven. THE BULL is due for release on 5 June.
Bristol keeps the rap flag held high with another strong release from the city’s seemingly endless stash of talent, as Billy Whizz returns with his new solo EP. The DJ and producer has amassed a good circle of collaborators over the years and this is demonstrated to superb effect on Kobra Kai Style. Among the instrumental joys we find thought provoking rap joints, like the Wish Master assisted Moves I Make, and soul-drenched, horn-flecked bangers like Fire/Water, which features Bristol OG, Mylo Stone, and vocalist, Melissa Dawn. More weight is added to the EP’s appeal, thanks to two further appearances by Relly and G00SE. You can hear the full thing for yourself below, with downloads and physicals available via Bandcamp.

Highly entertaining new video from Wish Master, as he continues to polish off the gems from his Boom Bap To The Future album. Science sees the Bristol-based rapper playing both himself and an elderly lady called Blanche, in a riff that Eddie Murphy would be proud of. The video also features a number of cameos, including fellow Bristol lyricist, Buggsy, who finds himself having a smoke and drink with Wish on the moon. The whole thing has a great DIY B-Movie vibe about it, which only adds to the entertainment value. Science is produced by Baileys Brown and is lifted from BBTTF, which is out now on Official Recordings. Continue reading “Wish Master: Science”
Another Bristol banger from Wish Master’s triumphant Boombap To The Future LP. For The Waves Coming, the Official Recordings MC has drafted in some top local talent in the form of Tac and Buggsy, all backed up with a solid beat from Simiah. The video was made by Don Wavy. Boombap To The Future is out now.
