Fresh from dropping the excitement building singles, Bristol’s Wish Master is the emcee who’s about to drop ‘Cold Harbour Tales‘ the long awaited collaborative album alongside Illinformed, undoubtedly one of the most in demand UK Hip Hop producers.
The sixteen track album, which drops on September 10th is stacked with features from Babylon Dead (of which Illinformed makes up one half alongside J-Man), Gee Bag, Datkid, Verb T, BVA, Leaf Dog, Axel Holy (aka Baileys Brown), Smellington Piff and more! These are familiar names for Illinformed, who has worked extensively with the whos-who of underground UK hip-hop, building his reputation as the scene’s go to beat smith.
Wish Master has granted us something magical, going in with heavyweight producer Illinformed for the LP as they compliment each other so well. Wish Master consistently delivers conscious street lyricism, flowing confidently over the high level and dark boom bap production with his signature heavyweight delivery.
The project drips with atmosphere, as Wish and his army of guests move comfortably between menacing and laid back, over Illinformed’s minor-key boom bap grooves on lemon-fresh tracks with their roots laid deep in the old school.
Wish Master has seen his career grow rapidly over the past three years. From being one of the most important up and coming emcees to emerge from Bristol, to supporting Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, and being the first Bristol rapper to record at the legendary BBC Maida Vale after being featured on the impressive BBC Music Introducing Ones to Watch in 2019.
Cold Harbour Tales is available for pre-order on Wish’s own O.R Records imprint, which is going from strength to strength after Wish founded it in St. Pauls, Bristol, in May 2017. The label now has a roster of artists from all over the country, boasting Wish, Glock and Tacaveli from its hometown, Matey Boy and SkinnyTallss from Portsmouth, DJ/producer Billy Whizz from the Midlands and Danja and B Wun from Exeter and Devon.
The album is available on all streaming platforms from 10/09/21.
