Skirmish drops a heavy dose of nostalgia, taking you straight back to the golden days of of mid-90's Hip Hop as he effortlessly flows and details influences close to his heart over a smooth, head-nodding beat by Manage. Bursting with sentimentality and summer-like feel good vibes.
Lab79 brings it super hard again with a banging offering comprising the main partners from the label. Reain, Manage and Skirmish all drop it heavy. The track Notes is also adorned with cuts by Fidel Cutstro.
eMCee Killa, Manage, Skirmish and Conflix team up on 'Pieces'. A veritable super group comprised of members from Caxton Press, Rhyme Asylum and Chain Of Command.
There's a reason Rhyme Asylum are at the pinnacle of their game and it's not because they're completely bonkers. They have been honing their craft since the debut album and Solitary Confinement really shows off their devastating skills to maximum effect. It's back to the classic mid 90’s boombap sound of DITC with a futuristic twist.
Rhyme Asylum are the UK’s version of Non Phixion and that’s a good thing. Remember their 2002 album ‘The Future is Now’? It featured Pete Rock, Large Pro, DJ Premier and Beatnuts production - on ‘State of Lunacy’ Leatherface rivals the greats in freshness and headnodability. And despite the dark overtones it’s not the least bit boring or depressing.
