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.
We Stay True is proud to present 'Version Control' an instrumental album by Ken Long. Thick electric pianos riding over Roland arpeggios, SP1200 grooves and percussion, lashings of thunder reverb and space echos, all mixed and recorded analog and cut from the original tapes.
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.
A veritable collection of UK stalwarts come together for this release. Cappo raps and Mr Brown produces. Bleach and Blue Flames is the latest track to be taken from the November released LP 'Raw Patsiche', the new album by Oblique Strategies.
