The Allergies are back with a new album - rejoice! Feel-good funk, hip-hop swagger and dusty vintage loops are everything you need right now. Across thirteen tracks, producers Rackabeat and DJ Moneyshot dig deep into their souls, as well as their record collections, serving up a day-glo blast of super positive sampledelia that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear.
Official music video for 'Soul Plane' made during Lockdown. Planky has engaged the help of some top notch MCs to fill out the vocals. Harry Shotta, PAV4N and Dynamite MC all get busy with exuberance. The track is a high powered, break driven, top-rocking, pop-locking breaker's anthem.
espite the troubles faced globally in 2020, it’s safe to say that The Allergies bucked the trend and posted a rather glorious year: releasing their fourth studio album, achieving the ‘A List’ on BBC Radio 6 Music and Radio Eins in Berlin
Hervé is one talented music producer with enough aliases to form a one-man label.

Baby J has rapidly become well known in Hip Hop, mainly in the UK but as a result of working with Wu-Affiliate Shabazz the Disciple, Brand Nubian and Dead Prez and others there are some in the US who will also know his name. His knack for sampling already insanely catchy songs and matching them up to MC's and singers who are actually decent has seen him score a few successes.
If I take any CD away on holiday with me this August it'll be 'Spektrum'. Although it represents many musical styles and evokes many feelings there's something about it that's made to provide a soundtrack for a long summer. Maybe it's the vigour, maybe it's the extraordinary refreshment of different genres or maybe it's the fact that it reminds you that actually, your musical tastes are pleasantly eclectic.
Dynamite MC is a pro. He’s been in the game for a while now and through his past work he has fully earned his stripes as one of the UK’s favourite story telling MCs. Not only that, but he can also rock a crowd. At the present time he hosts the Monday Hip Hop and RnB show on Kiss 100FM.
