Bard Picasso Records are proud to present the latest release from Cardiff collective Blue City comprising Jay-Rede and FormalBrown, and producer Mr Substance. The release is the seven track Mind Map. The duo build on the momentum gained throughout the last year and return to steal the show alongside some stellar guest features from label mates, affiliates and all round Hip Hop icon – Akil the MC (Jurassic 5).
The whole LP is masterfully crafted with the production of Mr Substance.
Hip Hop connoisseurs as well as casual listeners will be delighted throughout as the project is stacked with infectiously smooth tracks that see’s the duo voraciously attack the laid-back beats with ease, displaying amazing chemistry, composure and skill.
Production-wise Mr Substance has dug deep into his crates to provide a beautiful combination of Jazzy, soulful loops and thumping Boom Bap drum-loops that guarantees to get heads nodding and feet tapping.
It’s been long-overdue but with releases such as this, the Welsh Hip Hop scene is finally getting the recognition and attention it deserves. Blue City and Mr Substance – ‘Mind Map‘ is out now on all digital streaming services via Bard Picasso Records.
