Ile Flottante & Pertrelli Purple: Gone Trying (Stream)

Very nice sounds emanating from the YOGOCOP camp, as Ile Flottante and Pertrelli Purple release their new collaboration. Heavy on the jazz strains, Flottante’s production blends seamlessly with Pertrelli’s bars, allowing for maximum appreciation of both, without losing anything from either. Weighty on the features too, with Benaddict, NuphZed, Jordan Nathaniel and Bronte Shande, all bringing their voices to the mix. You can hear the full project below, with pre-orders for the vinyl run available over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Ile Flottante & Pertrelli Purple: Gone Trying (Stream)”

Benaddict: Mother Earth

Another treat here from the forthcoming Benaddict album, which sees its release later this month. The YOGOCOP resident has called in Philanthrope and Plusma to handle the production on Mother Earth, resulting in a heavily woozy and vaguely melancholic jazz-fuelled beat, which suits the mood perfectly. Benaddict’s album, Rain Falls, is due for release on 26 June.

Benaddict: Angel Eyes

Very happy to be able to bring you new music from Benaddict, as he returns to the fore with a new single. The Yogocop MC and producer has been relatively silent since his 2018 album, A New Leaf, so it’s nice to hear him back at it, and with a really nice track too. Angel Eyes features production from Mr Slipz, fresh from his recent signing with High Focus alongside Verbz. The track is the first to be taken from Benaddict’s upcoming album, Rain Falls, which I will have more news on soon. The video was made by This & That Media. Pre-orders for Rain Falls are already available.

NuphZed: Fickle Affection (Stream)

This week we were treated to the full release of the NuphZed project; something fans have been clamouring for since his Dreebalicious EP dropped back in early 2017. Fickle Affection is the Brighton artist’s latest venture and finds him as on point as ever lyrically, further buoyed by the production, including some self-produced gems and contributions from Harvs and Allen Keys. There are also five remixes on there, from the likes of Psalm Trees, Illiterate and Bo Bribery. Kemastry and Harvs are also on hand for features on Phidgity and NuphPiggy respectively. The whole thing is available to stream below and you can cop a limited edition vinyl version via Yogocop. Continue reading “NuphZed: Fickle Affection (Stream)”

Illitamin G: The Juice + Album Stream

The Juice is the latest single from Illiterate and Vitamin G’s new collaborative effort, which saw its full release on Friday. The album boasts some extremely strong tracks, including this number, as well as a few guest spots from some familiar names with CW Jones, Nuphzed and Wundrop all dropping into the mix. Vitamin G is on a roll at the moment, between this Illitamin G project and his CMPND movements over on High Focus, which is fine by me as in my eyes and ears he remains one of the best voices on the scene right now. You can stream the full album below and downloads are available via Yogocop. Continue reading “Illitamin G: The Juice + Album Stream”

Harvs Le Toad: Chicks & Tikka Naans (Stream)

Today is also release day for the debut solo LP from Harvs Le Toad. The Yogocop MC has rounded up a strong selection of players to help make Chicks & Tikka Naans a powerful touch paper for the flames that are likely to follow in his career. Production comes from the likes of Benaddict, Mr Slipz and Saulthesame, plus there are some nice features from Dirty Dike, Benaddict, Salmon Hands and CW Jones. The album is available to stream below and you can grab physicals/downloads over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Harvs Le Toad: Chicks & Tikka Naans (Stream)”
