Read all about it: Jehst’s ‘Daily Planet’ delivers a damning bulletin as “the strong and silent type – yeah, Gary fu*king Cooper”, while “up in Buckingham Palace planting dynamite”. Wordplay flowing like he’s on a deadline and delivering a hook bound to make front page news the world over.
Oblique Strategies (Cappo and Mr Brown) 'Thick And Thin' taken from the We Stay True compilation album 'Assembly'. This one has a big, but sparse beat with a mixture of single piano notes and additional piano flourishes. Cappo drops in his own unique style giving everything he spits on a hard edge.
Mr Brown brings us Isotope 436 for the 10th day in the We Stay True 12 bit SP12 Days For Xmas. His instrumental track highlighting the use of the classic SP12 drum machine features classic crunchy drums, and soothing key pads, but this one is all about the simple, yet effective dirty electronic bass.
Pre-orders for North London MC Melanin 9's "Amulets" are now underway. It's a 2014 vinyl release with 2021 remaster. The cover art is a homage to the Bruton Music library series. This time it is on cassette, and is now on all streaming platforms / Bandcamp.
Village Live Records are proud to present 'Phantoms', the A-side track from the forthcoming new 7″ vinyl by Reading based rapper and host of Hip Hop night Holdin Court, Ash The Author. This is a brooding bumper which is produced by DJ Drinks and features cuts from We Stay True's Mr Brown.
Raised in Bath, based in London Mo Fingaz' 'Ghost Train' is taken from the We Stay True compilation album 'Assembly'. For this one Mo has thrown it all into the mix for a bumping lo-fi instrumental. There is a 12-bit crunchy feel along with the eerie analogue samples a reverbed beat and vocal sample to top it off.
'Cognoscenti' featuring Confucius MC, taken from 'Raw Pastiche', the album by Oblique Strategies (Mr Brown and Cappo). Cappo opens with his usual no nonsense verbals and hard hitting style of delivery. Surprisingly Cons steps up and follows in the same vein dropping just as much heat.
