The Four Owls swarm into 2020 by announcing the long-awaited news of their third studio album Nocturnal
Instinct dropping via High Focus Records on 17th April 2020.
Since their inception in ‘11, The Four Owls have become best known for their thought-provoking, emotive and
undiluted lyricism. They’ve never shied away from delving deep within and in doing so have carved a unique
space for themselves within the Hip-Hop landscape. With the collective comprising of Leaf Dog, Fliptrix, Verb T
& BVA the foursome perfectly demonstrate the age-old idea that you can’t choose your family but you can choose
your friends, The Four Owls have fabricated an honest bond of brotherhood that spills out into their music which
can only be described as Hip-Hop in its purest form. At the production helm, Leaf Dog is responsible for creating
not only the entire album but The Owls signature sound which they have become so infamous for.
Nocturnal Instinct is set to become a cult classic and features artists you rarely see collaborate with musicians
on this side of the pond. Super-producer DJ Premier, who only ever works with The Owls in the UK, lends his
golden era beats to single ‘100%’ - with his signature scratched chorus proclaiming The Owls as 'kings of their
throne' - the follow up to their first monumental collaboration, ‘Think Twice’.
Also gracing the project is RA The Rugged Man, an artist has also worked with the likes of Notorious B.I.G,
Mobb Deep, & Wu-Tang Clan, now welcomes The Owls into his hall of fame. RA chops it up on ‘Air Strike’ and
brings his own East Coast style and fast-paced flow. Up next is arguably one of the biggest names to come from
the underground in recent years, Roc Marciano. Marciano lures you into a meditative state in ‘Dark Days’ by
carefully finding his place within The Owls unmatched beats. Nocturnal Instinct is a series of hand-picked tracks
designed to challenge the status quo and educate. The Owls continue to school throughout the entire album with
other appearances from the likes of Smellington Piff, Kool G Rap, as well as Masta Killa (Wu-Tang).

Chaos 93 Gold Vinyl Edition
2LP | 2016 | UK | Reissue (High Focus)
30,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Hip Hop
You know when an artist comes along and literally rewrites the rulebook with a style that has you either shaking your head in
disbelief or losing your mind in a mosh pit? You know the type; those artists who drop a debut that is swiftly regarded as a
complete classic, and subsequently ascend to the very top of the tree with unrivaled levels of talent and craftsmanship, topped
off with what appears to be consummate ease?
Artists of this calibre are rare (which is a shame but also totally understandable), that’s why they’re so enigmatic, but also so
celebrated when they decide to finally surface.
Long story short, Ocean Wisdom is one of those artists and ‘Chaos 93’ is one of those albums.
Born in Camden, raised in Brighton town, Ocean set the scene alight with his first-ever song ’Walkin’. The lead single and
opening track to ‘Chaos 93’ hit the big one million views on YouTube in under a year and in the space of four short minutes
Ocean did what many fail to do in a decade or more, namely, showcase a level of lyrical flair that simply cannot be taught.
If it could be taught everyone would be doing it...
Anthems ‘Splittin' The Racket’ and ’Snakes & Blaggers’ swiftly followed suit and acted to only reaffirm what most suspected (or
already knew), that Ocean Wisdom is destined for HUGE THINGS. There is something truly infectious about the way in which
Wizzy goes through the gears before delivering lung busting, almost triple-time lyrics. The thing that separates Ocean from his
other ‘quick-tongued’ counterparts is the fact that lyrical content and subject matter never pay the price when he decides that it’s
time to speed things up.
Production wise, Ocean has found a strong ally in rap rogue Dirty Dike who expertly crafted the entire LP. The freedom of Dike’s
no-nonsense, thump and sample production acts as the perfect terrain for Ocean to go to work. At 17 tracks, it’s safe to say that
‘Chaos 93’ is more than just a chapter for the young emcee. Even though the LP marks the very start of his musical journey, it
feels very much like his ‘opus’ already (just check the cover). Add a stellar roster of features to the mix including Foreign
Beggars, Klashnekoff, Lunar C, Remus and High Focus label mates The Four Owls, Dirty Dike, Jam Baxter & Edward
Scissortongue and (as we mentioned previously) ‘Chaos 93’ has all the makings of a truly classic release for 2016 and beyond.

There are very few Mc’s in the UK rap game as engrained into the culture as Ramson Badbonez. Rising through the ranks as one of the most cut throat MC’s London had ever seen at 14, it wasn’t long before people started to take notice of the young talent, gathering London wide respect as well as getting recognition from UK Hip Hop godfathers Task Force. The rhyming machine has been a living and breathing embodiment of the culture ever since. By far one of the most prolific creators in the scene, Ramson Badbonez employs one of the strictest work ethics ever seen with over 12 full length albums to his name and showing no signs of slowing down.

On the 28th February, Badbonez will present his latest work, a brand new album, with producer & long time collaborator Mark Fear, entitled ‘Death Mask’.

Following his previous ‘Jason Bonez’ & ‘Mic Day The 13th’ releases, Badbonez has removed the hockey mask to don the Egyptian Death Mask, as he leaves the Jason Bonez moniker behind to focus on a much broader palette of concepts and inspiration.

With topics ranging from the mysteries of the afterlife, the energy crisis to the lasting effects of colonialism to the failings of modern language - Badbonez has left no stone unturned. Fearlessly launching himself into the deep end, covering new ground and constructing incredibly dense prose perfectly matched by Mark Fear’s diverse yet crisp sound.

Perhaps Ramson Badbonez’ most solid release to date, we expect ‘Death Mask’ to make a serious impact in 2020.

This limited edition green vinyl edition of ‘Invisible War’ is limited to 150 copies.
Self proclaimed ‘exotic rapper’, Onoe Caponoe, has become one of the most progressive and exciting artists in the London
music scene.
March 2019 saw the release of ‘Surf Or Die’, tallied as the ‘definitive Onoe Caponoe Album’, regarded by many as his most
complete body of work to date receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Clash Magazine, The Wire & Red Bull Music UK to
name but a few. Not one to rest on his laurels, the prolific Onoe Caponoe is keeping the momentum going and is ready to
present his next full length offering in the form of ‘INVISIBLE WAR’.
From the outset, ‘INVISIBLE WAR’ is a different beast. From the offset the listener is brought to an alternative universe than that
of ‘Surf Or Die’. Despite having the same team behind the production, they have crafted a unique sound for this record which
serves Onoe perfectly as he wages his ‘INVISIBLE WAR’ over beautifully constructed, yet menacing, instrumentation.
With 1st single ‘Breaking Out The Mist’ already setting the tone on HighFocusTV, and a 15 date European tour in the
works, Onoe Caponoe is putting his best foot forward for 2020 and spearheading the High Focus Records movement as we
enter a new decade.

Release:2019 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
‘Green & Gold’ is the second collaborative release from Mr Key & Greenwood Sharps, the long awaited follow up to their critically acclaimed 2015 album ‘Yesterday’s Futures’. The record was written and recorded between Greenwood Sharps’ cottage in the verdant English countryside and the off grid Finca in the foothills of the Andalusian Sierra Nevada, Spain where Key is based. The title has multiple meanings none of which are anything to do with weed or money. First and foremost, green and gold are the colours which synesthete (a person who sees sound) Greenwood Sharps, composed the record in. It also alludes to the dialogue between the green of the UK and the dusty gold of Andalucia which created the project. Finally green and gold speaks of the dynamic between the sun and photosynthesising organisms, the driving force of life on earth. ‘Yesterday’s Futures’ took the listener on a meandering journey through a vast landscape of moods, sounds and ideas, leading ultimately to redemption and the possibility of resolution. Thematically, ‘Green & Gold’ picks up where ‘Yesterday’s Futures’ left off, but structurally it takes the opposite tack; an extended exploration of a single ubiquitous idea: universal love for all things and all people and the challenge of maintaining these shiny ideals in day to day life, as our cynical side reasserts itself.

Release:2019 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
High Focus Records is proud to present ‘A Question Of Time’, a brand new collaborative album from Hip Hop’s most prolific duo:
Verb T & Pitch 92.
Not only did the pair deliver one of the most solid Hip Hop albums at the tail end of 2017 with ‘Good Evening’, but they went on to
provide the score for Romesh Ranganthan’s Sky One Smash TV show ‘The Reluctant Landlord’ thrusting their signature sound into
prime time TV territory. Verb T is a highly respected veteran of the scene with over 14 LPs to his name spanning every era of the genre
so far, as well as being part of trailblazing super group The Four Owls. His partner in crime Pitch 92, is following suit & is churning out
incredible projects at an startling rate including last year’s ‘Lost In Space EP’ and February critically acclaimed ‘3rd Culture’ album - as
heard at length on Marry Anne hobbs’ BBC Radio 6 Music Show, not to mention being Manchester’s ‘go-to’ producer, producing
entire projects for the likes of [ KSR ], DRS, The Mouse Outfit and many more.
It is clear that these two artists are truly on a roll, this ’boost’ is unmistakable when listening to their brand new offering ‘A Question Of
Time’ - which resumes where the duo left off with ‘Good Evening’ but with a palpable & revitalised burst of energy which literally picks
the listener up by the scruff of the neck and hurls them into the future.
At 13 tracks, clocking just over 38 minutes, ‘A Question Of Time’ is a full on immersive experience. Much like the nature of time, its
hard to quantify how the pair have packed so many concepts, rhythms and rhymes into such a small space. Whether nostalgic or
looking forward, Verb T, guides the listener on an epic journey over the ever changing moods and atmosphere’s provided by Pitch 92
which vary from urgent ‘the clock is ticking’ type pressure to the ‘time slows down’ mellow vibes he has become known for,
appropriately described as ‘Pete Rock Perfection’ by The Wire.

Bonez and presents us with the blood curdling ‘Mic Day The 13th’. Continuing where the first ‘Jason
Bonez’ left off, this LP is heavily influenced by the cult classic horror film ‘Friday The 13th’ - Badbonez
proceeds to execute, mangle & massacre everything in his path over 12 expertly produced tunes, taking
care to explore different flow patterns and cadences on each track, a true feat considering Badbonez’
already very impressive level of lyricism. Featuring gritty production from Illinformed, Jazz T, Skeleton
Key & Mark Fear Beats; ‘Mic Day The 13th’ is not for the faint hearted, taking the term hardcore to

stellar contribution to Ocean Wisdom’s UK TOP 40 ‘Wizville’ album, producer Pitch 92 is
ready to show off his new works to the world, as he enters a new stage in his career and begins

Madlib, Pete Rock & J Dilla, Pitch 92 has carved out his own unique style and pulled out all the
stops for his debut release on High Focus Records.
Entitled ‘Lost In Space’, this new EP is a perfectly balanced mix of vocal and instrumental
tracks showcasing the raw talent of the Manchester based producer. Pitch 92 has assembled a
healthy roster of artists to work alongside, ranging from UK Hip Hop royalty to up & coming US
artists as well as accomplished musicians.
Spanning from UK Hip Hop favourites such as Jehst & Verb T, to new faces such as [ K S R ],
Sparkz and Doctor Outer as well as hooking up with Sony Music’s Ashely Henry, one of the
UK’s most accomplished jazz pianists as heard on ‘One Handed’ - Pitch 92, armed with his
trusty MPC, expertly provides the perfect backdrop to accommodate each of his guests, as well
as putting forward instrumentals that stand out as masterpieces in their own right, Pitch 92
applies finesse and the ability of a veteran producer, despite only being 26 years old - One
listen of lead single ‘Lost In Space’ featuring Jehst and Confucius MC is all you need to
confirm that we are indeed listening to a master at work.
In short, ‘Lost In Space’ is a production masterclass and serves as the perfect introduction to
the Pitch 92 sound, of which you will be hearing more and more, guaranteed.

Ocean Wisdom has enjoyed a meteoric rise thus far. Hailed as “the future of UK Hip-Hop” by Complex Magazine with a style described as "Mercurial" by Dummy Magazine, Ocean Wisdom is about to embark on his finest hour to-date as he announces the release of his album ‘Wizville’. Due to release on the 23rd February, the raw poetic and unfiltered rapper has built an impressive following in his own unique way, away from the tried and tested routes of fellow rappers. He regularly tips a million streams on tracks uploaded to his Spotify account and his videos uploaded to YouTube have hit over 15 million views making him quite an extraordinary act. His unswayable integrity and confidence towards his music has awarded him with the kudos that it takes to confirm artists such as Dizzee Rascal, Method Man, P Money, Rodney P, Roots Manuva & Chester P and productions from Rude Kid, Pete Cannon, Mystry and more across the 20 impressive records that make up this important offering. Whilst unique blends of genre-merging flows weave in to thoughtprovoking lyricism to create a tapestry of moods, emotions and sonic nirvana.
Through his versatility and unparalleled lyrical creativity, stage presence and flow, Ocean Wisdom delivers major impressions in each aspect of his artistry, from performing to main-stage crowds of over 10,000 people to dethroning Eminem as the ‘fastest rapper’, after managing to fit an impressive 4.45 words per second into his track ‘Walkin’ compared to Eminem’s 4.31 words per second in ‘Rap God’, as documented by UniLad. This article would go on to become viral, drawing praise for Wizzy as well as being commented on by some of the industry’s forerunners such as The Game, D12 and Akon.

‘A psychedelic induced hypnotic state, crossing over borders of the physical realm...’
Ramson Badbonez, one of the most revered MC’s in the UK underground is back!
In his last musical offering, Ramson Badbonez took us through the conceptual ‘Year In The Life Of Oscar The Slouch’, a gritty seasonal account of the harsh realities of London inner city street life. This June, the illusive skull clad lyricist makes his grand return to the airwaves with his brand new collaborative effort alongside producer DJ Fingerfood entitled ‘Hypnodic’. As the title suggests, this is a much more cerebral journey onto the astral plains of the mind of Ramson Badbonez. However, do not be mistaken, Badbonez’ signature gritty rapping style is still as prevalent and as sharp as ever and is a perfect match for Fingerfood’s ‘Hypnodic’ production style. The album is tied together with a string of esoteric vocal samples and interludes as well as razor sharp cuts provided by the dexterous hands of DJ Fingerfood.
In a day and age where UK rap music is diluted with generic concepts and weak lyrics, Badbonez is back to demand respect through his impeccable lyricism. With big hooks, lyrical jabs and stomping production amidst features from the likes of Leaf Dog, Res One, Gadget & MAB to name a few this album is set to get some serious rotation.
‘Hypnodic’ will be released on High Focus Records on the 16th of June 2017 on limited edition vinyl, CD, limited edition cassette tape, and all good digital platforms!

Counting Trip-Hop, Ambient, West African High Life, Dancehall, Jungle, Folk and Film Soundtracks as his influences, there is something for everyone on this creative masterpiece.Predominantly instrumental but does have a handful of collaborations with vocalists Killa P, Jerome Thomas, RHI, Penelope Oddity and Chris Belson. ‘I Am Delicious And Cute. So I Will Go Buy Again’ is a meditative journey upriver, whilst ‘Wickedest Ting’ completely flips the switch with a dancehall barrage from Killa P.

Mr Key & Greenwood Sharps
Green & Gold
CD | 2019 | UK | Original (High Focus)
9,99 €*
Release:2019 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
‘Green & Gold’ is the second collaborative release from Mr Key & Greenwood Sharps, the long awaited follow up to their
critically acclaimed 2015 album ‘Yesterday’s Futures’. The record was written and recorded between Greenwood Sharps’
cottage in the verdant English countryside and the off grid Finca in the foothills of the Andalusian Sierra Nevada, Spain where
Key is based.
The title has multiple meanings none of which are anything to do with weed or money. First and foremost, green and gold are
the colours which synesthete (a person who sees sound) Greenwood Sharps, composed the record in. It also alludes to the
dialogue between the green of the UK and the dusty gold of Andalucia which created the project. Finally green and gold speaks
of the dynamic between the sun and photosynthesising organisms, the driving force of life on earth.
‘Yesterday’s Futures’ took the listener on a meandering journey through a vast landscape of moods, sounds and ideas,
leading ultimately to redemption and the possibility of resolution. Thematically, ‘Green & Gold’ picks up where ‘Yesterday’s
Futures’ left off, but structurally it takes the opposite tack; an extended exploration of a single ubiquitous idea: universal love for
all things and all people and the challenge of maintaining these shiny ideals in day to day life, as our cynical side reasserts itself.

Genre:Hip Hop
Eagle Court' is the highly anticipated debut album from Brighton based hybrid rap three piece, CMPND, formed of members Kemastry,
Wundrop & Vitamin G. Since joining the High Focus Records family in April, the group have been tearing up the live circuit & churning out
singles showcasing their sonic versatility - Clearly demonstrating why they are the torch bearers ushering in a whole new generation & sound
into the UK Rap world.
On the 11th of October 2019 CMPND will present ‘Eagle Court’, a densely packed album that defies categorisation, the trio bring a whole new
vision and aesthetic to the forefront without sounding or mimicking the current sounds emanating from America, falling into the trappings of
Grime & Drill or recreating the ‘90‘s Golden Age’ Hip Hop sound - Whether it be the mind bending production or the next level pen game, they
are bringing something truly unique to the table. Named after the flat where they all lived and produced the album, it is clear the trio were
hermetically sealed in the lab, crafting an exceptional vision devoid of outside distractions and influences.
With surreal unpredictable rhymes from Kemastry, Vitamin G's multi-syllable machine gun verses and Wundrop providing cold, scathing social
observations as-well-as handling all production duties, expect ‘Eagle Court’ to provide a modern day, new-generation saga, fusing the gritty &
the suave in an audio visual experience like no other.

Genre:Hip Hop
Following on from Ramson Badbonez’ super limited ‘Jason Bonez’ concept album release in May 2018,
the rapper is once again donning the blood stained hockey mask as he returns to the character of Jason
Bonez and presents us with the blood curdling ‘Mic Day The 13th’. Continuing where the first ‘Jason
Bonez’ left off, this LP is heavily influenced by the cult classic horror film ‘Friday The 13th’ - Badbonez
proceeds to execute, mangle & massacre everything in his path over 12 expertly produced tunes, taking
care to explore different flow patterns and cadences on each track, a true feat considering Badbonez’
already very impressive level of lyricism. Featuring gritty production from Illinformed, Jazz T, Skeleton
Key & Mark Fear Beats; ‘Mic Day The 13th’ is not for the faint hearted, taking the term hardcore to
levels unheard.

Touching Scenes

9,99 €*
Release:2018 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Widely regarded as one of the most gifted writers in the UK, it is finally time for JAM BAXTER to reveal
his formidable new album ‘TOUCHING SCENES’. Treating us to 16 tracks of some of his most
polished and accomplished work to date, a fully fledged audio visual experience - a psychedelic
opus. A Touching Scene. Whether it is the incredible avant garde production, or the all-encompassing
scenic vocals. Nothing comes out of this experience unscathed. Tears of joy guaranteed.
Similarly to his previous record, the slightly slurred and and debauched ‘Mansion 38’, Jam Baxter
recorded this new body of work in the tropical settings of Bangkok, Thailand, with long time
collaborator and audio landscapist, Chemo. However, this time around, the pair have enlisted the
capable hands of GhostTown, Sumgii, Last Japan & Sam Zircon to contribute to the colour palette of
this more refined body of work, allowing the project to stand alone sonically as a more evolved sequel
to its low tempo predecessor. The album blurs the conventional genre lines of hip hop and grime in
it's production, with lyrical influences ranging from William S. Burroughs to Young Thug. There are a
multitude of sumptuous flavours in this finely woven package that cater to every conceivable taste
bud - perhaps making this LP Jam Baxter’s most complete and polished effort to date.
Jam Baxter is joined on this journey by a very carefully selected & varied set of vocalists; who all bring
their unique vista to the project, further enriching the tapestry. From modern day super star
Rag’n’Bone Man, to the ingenious Kate Tempest, to Grime pioneer OG Rootz (FKA Durrty Goodz), to
underground sensation Stinkin Slumrok as well as up & coming singer Rhi - there is a representative
from every facet of the fragmented UK scene all coming together to add to the poignancy of the
Touching Scene.

Yesterday's Futures is definitely a rap record, and yet, somehow it resonates beyond the often narrow confines of that genre. In the place of the usual self aggrandising braggadocio is a personal exploration of universal themes; loss, addiction, depression, childhood, and eventually, love and hope.
