Configa - Configaration Volume 1 LP [SLAMJamz Records]

Configa – Configaration Volume 1 LP [SLAMJamz Records]

Configa has been deep in the trenches for several years and has finally emerged with an album the world needs to hear. Having refined his production process, Configaration Vol 1 can rightly be called a Magnum Opus (he wont mind me saying!) due to the quality of the music and selection of features who do not disappoint, from the endorsement of Public Enemy's Chuck D, to the Godfather of rap, Spoonie Gee, to Juice Crew legend Craig G, a banger with Reks, a welcome introduction to a dope emcee called Vietnam and even a feature from the late great Sean P!

Ric Branson - Uh Oh MP3 [Grand Vision]

Ric Branson – Uh Oh MP3 [Grand Vision]

Hailing from the golden era of the early noughties UK hip hop scene, former legendary Universal Soldiers frontman Ric Branson makes an epic return to the booth, aided by renowned producer A.H. Fly. Uh Oh provides an infectious piano bounce for Ric Branson to demonstrate why he has carved out such a formidable reputation as a lyricist on the underground scene. The single precedes an eagerly-anticipated solo album 'Epilogue', scheduled for release in early 2018.

Jazz Spastiks - Scratch and Sniff LP [Jazzplastik]

Jazz Spastiks – Scratch and Sniff LP [Jazzplastik]

Back with another fresh LP, instrumental this time, Scratch and Sniff is another great addition to the rapidly expanding Jazz Spastiks discography. For this album, the Scottish production duo have cooked up more of their funky grooves, overlayed with crazy informative vocal snippets, cut up throughout with each track dedicated to a specific theme, a smell, with a booklet included that I'm afraid to actually scratch and sniff.
