Essa - The Misadventures Of A Middle Man LP [First Word]Soon to drop on First Word Records is the long awaited 'The Misadventures Of A Middle Man', the new album from Essa. Despite being a firm fixture in UK rap for over a decade, this will be Essa's first full-length since 2006's 'Grown Man Business' with DJ Mr Thing. Early releases 'Liquid Love', 'City Breaks' and 'Dancing Shoes' (under former name Yungun) established him as one of the UK's most insightful MCs. Collabs with Guru (Gang Starr/Jazzmatazz) and praise from Nas and Mark Ronson followed. All of this whilst pursuing a parallel career as an entertainment lawyer.

Bambu Hands - The Lost Soul LP [Northern Structure]Residing in the wilderness of the North West on England. Producer and Crate Digger Bambu Hands releases his third themed instrumental project 'The Lost Soul'. This time Bambu Hands is using all of those old and unwanted soul records he had lying around. Turning what may have been a dusty charity shop bound stack of records into a fusion of soul and beats in a way only Bambu Hands knows how.

Verbal Skillz - The Guillotine Album LP [2-Bit Records]The Guillotine Album is an old school, real talk hip hop album from UK emcee Verbal Skillz. The album features tracks from US rap legend Masta Ace on M@NKIND and Emceekilla, from Caxton Press on a track called Characters. The album has 12 tracks, including two bonus beats, a reworking of Dark Days and a remix of Lacking Minerals.

Typikal - The Mighty Pessimist LP [Subfriction Records]Glaswegian hip hop label Subfriction finally presents East Kilbride born Typikal's, debut album entitled The Mighty Pessimist. Its somewhat a look inside the mind of the average Scottish, twenty-something's, man. As the title suggests, Typikal takes us through a journey of everything that grinds his gears, gets on his nerves, and just downright pisses him off. Tales of late teenage years of indulgence quickly become stories of growing up, struggling to make a wage, and preparing for fatherhood.
