Skepta - Konnichiwa
Skepta
Konnichiwa
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Betty Boy Know)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
Preorder 19.05.2017
On Skepta's long-awaited new album, the grime pioneer is full of sneering contempt for popular culture’s industry of image, the press, the police, and the government at large.Skepta produced eight of the twelve tracks himself, and they have the same roughly hewn power of his early instrumentals, measured but fiery stews of dancehall, jungle, UK funky, and garage. When it works, it's bone-rattling stuff. Elsewhere, it's a mixed bag, sonically and qualitatively: He caricatures Noah “40” Shebib’s rose-quartz soul on “Ladies Hit Squad;” “Crime Riddim,” produced by Blaikie and Skepta’s brother Jason, has the wild flair of a Death Grips track; and “Numbers” (featuring and co-produced by Pharrell) fails to shoehorn Skepta into Pharrell's bubbly funk universe.As for his lyrics, there is nothing coded about them, or their meaning: He raps exclusively about distrust and independence. He’s very much aware that London, and the world, will continue to exploit him and erase his individuality. This awareness is why he refuses to appear in pictures with fans or answer press emails in “Man.” It’s why he pulls way back, and samples Wiley’s call for peace in the middle of a battle (“Lyrics for lyrics, calm”) in “Lyrics.” He finds peace, if he finds it at all, in his roots: by remaining loyal to family and friends, by being appreciative of the past, and by incubating a future for his genre. Konnichiwa is as nakedly vulnerable Skepta has ever been, and it represents a tantalizingly wide-open door for grime. It’ll be our job as listeners to step through and discover what we’ve been missing. - Pitchfork.

Leaf Dog
Dyslexic Disciple
2LP | 2017 | EU | Original (High Focus)
31,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Six long years have passed since ‘From A Scarecrows Perspective’ revealed Leaf’s unmistakable voice to the rap world. The true beauty of a musical hiatus is when the fans remain feverish for a return. In Leaf Dog’s case, his movements between solo outings have seen him extend both his vision as RLD Records boss, producer extraordinaire, 1/4 of The Four Owls and 1/2 of Brothers Of The Stone, power moves that have taken him to the highest reaches of the scene, however, make no mistake, when it comes to true, uncut introspection, it was always going to be about that second solo instalment. The wait is over. Leaf Dog is back. ‘Dyslexic Disciple’ is an anthology of the life lessons that shaped Leaf’s world over the past half decade. A world TOTALLY dominated by hip hop culture. Constant touring, selling-out shows, working with a near-endless list of rap royalty along the way; ‘Dyslexic Disciple’ is as much an anthology of all-of-the-above as it is autobiographical and observational. Sixteen tracks, all hits, ‘Dyslexic Disciple’ represents PRECISELY what both Leaf Dog and moreover, High Focus Records have championed since the very start, namely, spreading uncut perspectives, providing a voice for the UK and remaining completely focused on the championing of ‘real’ hip hop music to the masses. With an all-star list of features including label cohorts Fliptrix, Dirty Dike, Dabbla, BVA, alongside Smellington Piff and LEGENDARY names such as Kool Keith, Jehst, Task Force and Phi Life Cypher bolstering the message, we suspect that ‘Dyslexic Disciple’ may well be the best example of the HF mission statement to date. Speaking on the release, Leaf Dog explained... “This album is for the people that tell me my music has changed their life or helped them through tough times. Drug addiction, break ups, hardship and loss. This album is for them...”

Strange U
#LP4080
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (High Focus)
31,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
We are truly living in strange times. Our reality is snowballing into a dystopian nightmare with all powerful pig headed political figures pulling the rest of the world towards oblivion. Headlines read like chapters from the darkest of Orwellian fantasies and our world is starting to resemble the bleakest of premonitions put forward by the most ‘out there’ science fiction writers. To say the least, things are going a bit strange. Few artists have managed to capture and reflect the current sate of affairs as well as new High Focus Records signings Strange U have with their debut album ‘#LP4080’. Perhaps one the most unique acts to hit the hip hop scene; bringing a truly fresh take on a subject matter lesser rappers have toiled with for years. Rapper King Kashmere and producer Zygote (aka The Maghreban) blend a careful mixture of social commentary and experimental excellence over left of centre rhythms sent from the mother ship whilst staying 100% Hip Hop throughout as the album title would suggest - a reference to the famous Tribe Called Quest Industry Rule. But don’t get it twisted, it isn’t all doom & gloom. The album takes the listener to many different dimensions whilst maintaining a signature cohesiveness. From politics on "Mr Kill”, a pastiche of the modern rap game on "Shots" to the other worldly Sci-Fi of "Cimmerian Shade" and the self deprecating wit of "Waste of Space". Overall, the duo aim to make music that bangs and that takes you elsewhere. Maybe it harks back some of the references they connected over, perhaps when hip hop acts had more character. More Goofball. More Experimental. More Gonzo.

Sleaford Mods are the product of Britain's harsh reality-a punk band that, through lack of sympathy for the human race, replaced its members with a laptop. Their songs are fueled with working class philosophy, and the vibe is bleak. Comparable to the delivery of John Cooper Clarke, Steve Ignorant, Ian Dury, the pumping bass riffs of The Fall, the cheap synth beats of The Normal.

Leaf Dog is one of the most celebrated hip hop artists to emerge from the UK, with a reputation that stretches far beyond the British Isles. Whether its working with international Hip Hop icons (DJ Premier, Wu Tang, Styles P, KRS One), launching careers (Rag'n'Bone Man), whipping crowds into a frenzy the world over with The Four Owls, producing some of the biggest anthems that represent our scene, it is undeniable that leaf dog is nothing short of a phenomenon.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
After over a year spent in a slight creative slump in a crumbling terraced house in Tottenham, Jam Baxter rang his label boss while heavily intoxicated to request they fly him to Bangkok forthwith, to rejoin forces with '...so we ate them whole' producer and engineer, Chemo. After an initial period of understandable hesitancy, the flights were booked and Baxter found himself suddenly regurgitated from the belly of a Jet Airliner into the magical and surreal surroundings of Mansion 38.Mansion 38 is the name of the apartment block in Bangkok in which Baxter wrote the entire album, all the while going slowly insane on a heady mix of local liquor and multicoloured pharmaceuticals. The album is very much a product of the month he spent there in a dream-like state, becoming a delusional half-man half- goat figure to be admired and feared in equal measure.Despite not being the wholesome and creative Zen retreat he anticipated and most probably needed, the backdrop of seedy late nights and impulsive tropical hedonism has resulted in some of his most intriguing and honest work to date. Chemo once again provides the haunting and evocative canvas that is all too perfect for Baxter's colourful imagery and dark psychedelic storytelling, blending a huge array of influences into an album that flows seamlessly from start to finish.With comrades Lee Scott and Trellion flying to Bangkok on a whim to record their contributions and with videos shot in Bangkok, Hanoi and London this is truly an international project born of grand ambition and abject madness.Mansion 38 is clear proof that after several years and multiple solo and group projects, Jam Baxter is still angrily shoving the boundaries of hip hop and lyricism further outward.

Sleaford Mods' third Berlin show took place at Kreuzberg's legendary SO36 club. The band took to the stage on a hot sweaty June night and played to a sold out audience. The show was captured by a german documentary crew and this limited edition album captures the highlights of that incendiary performance. Amongst the 14 tracks on the album are favourites like "Tied Up In Nottz", "Jobseeker", "Fizzy" and the great crowd-pleaser and closer "Tweet, Tweet, Tweet". The recording is testament to the connection between the band and those that follow them. Hear the glorious carnage and madness throughout the record's duration. No language barriers, no borders, no restrictions of any kind. This album also represents the first release on Harbinger Sound's new USA subsidiary label. Fuck England!

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
After spending 13 years in Queens, New York, Lewis Parker returned to London in early 2015. “Release The Stress” is the first new material released since his return. The topic of the song is fairly self-explanatory dealing with the everyday pressure of living, in a fast pace modern city environment. Lewis speaks on his production and how he balances this with day to day life. The production captures the feel of the classic 90’s hip hop but with a polished and very musical feel to it. Phat gritty SP drums, deep hypnotic bass lines, lush strings, catchy flutes, a dope late night sax, ill synths and wah guitars make this production up there with Lewis’s best work. The record is pressed on 140 gram black vinyl and comes with full colour artwork by Bee Graphics. All tracks produced by Lewis Parker Including remix, Instrumentals and acappella.

Release:2016 / UK – Original
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 indisbelief or losing your mind in a mosh pit? You know the type; those artists who drop a debut that is swiftly regarded as acomplete classic, and subsequently ascend to the very top of the tree with unrivaled levels of talent and craftsmanship, toppedoff 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 socelebrated 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 andopening track to ‘Chaos 93’ hit the big one million views on YouTube in under a year and in the space of four short minutesOcean 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 (oralready knew), that Ocean Wisdom is destined for HUGE THINGS. There is something truly infectious about the way in whichWizzy goes through the gears before delivering lung busting, almost triple-time lyrics. The thing that separates Ocean from hisother ‘quick-tongued’ counterparts is the fact that lyrical content and subject matter never pay the price when he decides that it’stime 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’sno-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, itfeels very much like his ‘opus’ already (just check the cover). Add a stellar roster of features to the mix including ForeignBeggars, Klashnekoff, Lunar C, Remus and High Focus label mates The Four Owls, Dirty Dike, Jam Baxter & EdwardScissortongue and (as we mentioned previously) ‘Chaos 93’ has all the makings of a truly classic release for 2016 and beyond.

Four Owls MC, Verb T and Brothers Of The Stone producer, Illinformed come together to bring you the musical motion picture of the century entitled 'The Man With The Foggy Eyes'. Unfolding like an early De Niro and Scorsese collaboration the album charts the life and times of our hero as he struggles to balance the monotony of everyday life with the unpredictability of an ever changing future. The emotion, the madness and humour found within the highs and lows is highlighted with stark honesty, then at times Verb T's trademark realism gives way to fantasy and imagination as he takes on the role of the lead character. Illinformed has created a wide and varied range of soundscapes with touches of jazz, blues, gospel and funk all brought together with that classic hip hop feel he is known for. Guest appearances include all of T's fellow Owls, Hip hop veterans as well as a crop of fresh up and comers all of whom add their own unique touches to this album.

Drawing upon production assistance from young British producer, Fred, together with musical heavyweights Four Tet, Adrian Sherwood and Switch’s new production team, With You, the title of the record is, in the man’s own words, an “egocentric jest of daring to do things in the tradition of Jesus: I’m ready to bleed for the artform.” It is, of course, also a reference to the way in which genres, in the sonic world of Roots Manuva, have a tendency to bleed into one another, so that hip hop, reggae, techno, funk, neo-classical, all blend together to create “liquid soul, the blood, the bleeds that paint infinite sacred wonders in our dreams and unfold in our day-to-day.”

Genre:Hip Hop, Rock / Indie
Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods are due to release their third ‘proper’ album on July 10th via abstract-punk label Harbinger Sound on vinyl, CD and download. The album will be housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Steve Lippert and was mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Everything else was done by Sleaford Mods. “Key Markets was a large supermarket bang in the centre of Grantham from the early 1970's up until around 1980,” explains Jason Williamson. “My mum would take me there and I'd always have a large coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album 'Key Markets'. It's the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un-incredible landscape.” “The album was recorded in various periods between summer 2014 through to October of that year. We worked fast as we normally do, the method was the same as the other albums and like the other two, the sound has naturally moved itself along. 'Key Markets' is in places quite abstract but it still deals heavily with the disorientation of modern existence. It still touches on character assassination, the delusion of grandeur and the pointlessness of government politics. It's a classic. Fuck em.”

The akronym »W.I.D.E.« stands for »Window Into Dark Edits«. The name of the new Obba Supa EP speaks for itself. Friends of the London duo are used to such images, created with their music. The recent release of the album »FOR:AM« soundes dark and spheric, too. Nevertheless, producer Hey!zeus.i had ellaborated a warm and organic sound, while »W.I.D.E.« sounds stone cold and lost. Strong delay fx on the vocals and synthetic drum sounds dominate the slow but yet intensive arrangements. Connecting those elemets, the five track EP crosses genre borders, mixing Industrial with Boom Bap and Cloud Rap. The lyrics of the duo perfectly fit into the dark soundscape: Teknical Development and Hey.zeus.i present a soundtrack to a dystopian World, ranging somewhere in beetween a nightmare and urban realities.»W.I.D.E.« will be the first part of a three piece EP series by Obba Supa that will be released via Sichtexot. »W.I.D.E.« will be available on 12” vinyl and digital on April 24th.

Sleaford Mods started around 2006 in Nottingham by Jason Williamson. Born out of frustration and by accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive attack on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment. ‘Mr. Jolly Fucker’ b/w ‘Tweet Tweet Tweet’ sees the duo continuing their sometimes raucous yet always edgy melding of mean hip-hop beats, often savage poetic observations (think whizzed-out Mark E, Smith) and snarling punk attitude. A full-on kick to the senses inspired by the Sex Pistols, The Last Poets and ‘60s garage and soul music.

First in Command was made up of Dave aka Abyss, Mervyn aka 2Kind and DJ Olabean and they were from Liverpool (UK) - can ya tell?During the early 1980's, Liverpool and specifically Toxteth was not necessarily a "fun" place to live!. The area was one of the most segregated in the UK, unemployment was at a 50 year high and race relations were tense. The predominantly black community, a strong and vital part of the cultural make-up of this major UK port city (which was incidentally built on the slave trade), was ghettoised within the L8 Liverpool postcode. Police brutality and victimisation of young black kids was rife and in the summer of 1981 the anger and mistrust between the two factions was at boiling point. Following the St Paul's riots of 1980 in Bristol and the Brixton riots earlier in the year came Liverpool's edition: the Toxteth riots (also know as the L8 uprising, depending on which side of the road you were standing). Several weeks after the violence that was to rock the city (pun intended) "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was released (!). It was after seeing this epic and entirely unrelated piece of Spielberg cinema that Toxteth residents Dave and Mervyn met. Dave remembers the two boys chattin' about the film in their first conversation and also that their meeting was probably sealed with a ceremonial and bond-forming burning of a box of Swan Vestas. Those actions in the problematic summer of 1981 led to the creation and recording of their never-released album "Pest Control" 14 years later.Dave was exposed to electronic groups like Kraftwerk and early Hip Hop tracks via his brother, 8 years his senior, who was in an electro-pop group at the time. His mum had allowed his older brother to convert the upstairs box room into a makeshift practice room for his band and one day the heard "Rappers Delight" bumping through the floorboards of the house and was immediately affected. Mervyn had heard a lot of early Electro from his brother who was 4 years older than him plus his mum would play a lot of Reggae (John Holt being a favourite) and soul groups like the Chi-Lites were often on the record player. When his brother was out the house he would sneak into his room and spin records by Flash, Bambaataa, Whodini and early Run DMC, being extremely careful to leave his brothers records in the same order and state he found them in for fear of a beating!!!! Being from the same neighbourhood the two boys used to hang out at the Charles Woolton Centre, a local community centre in Toxteth. The youth centre had a music room, and Dave, an aspiring drummer, would mimick classic breakbeats and they began, slowly to start to write tracks together. Mervyn aka 2Kind remembers not being able to recite his rhymes until the light was turned off for fear of embarrassment. They would do cover versions of classic Hip Hop joints, one they remember doin on the reg was Tuff Crew's "She Rides the Pony" (in a Scouse accent? DOPE!). Their evolution took a huge leap after Mervyn brought the instrumental of Main Source's "Watch Roger do his Thing" to the club one day and they both recited written rhymes over the top - it was soon after this that they knew they wanted to record.After the mind-expanding realisation that Rap tracks contained samples, following the discovery of the Ultimate Breaks and Beats series, hardcore digging for samples ensued. They would separately and as a duo hit up stores like Spin Inn and Eastern Bloc in Manchester on their weekly inter city pilgrimage to cop new and old Hip hop and to satisfy their breaks and beats cravings they would rinse out Hairy Records in Liverpool city centre or Backtracks in the Whitechapel area of the city. It was on one diggin mission at Hairy Records in 1992 that Mervyn stumbled across a bunch of "Library Records" that the owner had marked for 50p each. The popularity of this sample-laden genre was still fairly low key and the cover prices that these records fetched would not peak for several years. He brought the swag over to Dave's spot and realising that they had found something they could use, went back the following day to clean up - there were KPM's, Conroys, Chappells, Brutons. The owner of the shop had bought 100's from an auction of stuff from an old BBC office and not knowing their value (to a Hip Hop producer), had flung them all out in the racks for peanuts. The boys ate them up like starved Pacmen.Dave put together a small home studio set up to write beats for their rhymes. He had the obligatory Atari ST with an early version of Cubase, an Akai S950 and a Yamaya PX27 keyboard to trigger samples - basic yet affective. They began writing tracks around 1991/1992 and worked on a set of material over the next 3 years. They joined forces with local DJ and DMC competitor DJ Olabean who provided the appropriate deft cuts for the project. With no one in the city to guide them with their Hip Hop production, everything they created was was done via Rap osmosis, listening to the likes of Main Source, KMD, ATCQ and Pete Rock - i.e decent influences. They hooked up with a music producer in town with his own studio who let them record for nothing and although he didn't have any knowledge or experience in the music they were trying to make, acted as a manager of sorts, looking to recoup the studio hours in some shape or form. They set up one of the first Hip Hop nights (Phat Skills) in Liverpool, a city which had not seen any success in that genre of music. The only group that had had a record out was Power to the Max in the late 80's. Dave had run into one of the members at a Monie Love gig in 1988 who had encouraged him to write. There was also the group Bantu who were legendary on the local live scene in the mid to late 80's, but never dropped anything other than a white label in1991 and like so many Liverpool Hip Hop acts failed to reach their potential. First in Command truly believed that they would be the first North West Hip Hop group to get some success while making pure, quality Hip Hop Music.With a demo complete they hit up a load of labels and publications. They won a demo competition in Hip Hop Connection magazine and received a few press mentions but the buzz wasn't spun into anything further. London-based labels didn't know what to do with the Liverpool accent and what few labels there were didn't pick up on the demo or invest in the group. Then, as is usually the way, life took over and families, children and work became the main priority and the First in Command project had to take a back seat and eventually fizzled out. This little-known UK Hip Hop group made the music they wanted to hear and were never steered by any outside forces. The content of the songs were shaped by their experiences alone. Rather than glamourise their upbringings or talk about an imaginary life of drug dealing and crime, they focused on their friendship, shared passions (Hip Hop for one), going out and gettin pure fanny!! They never caricatured their [strong] Liverpudlian accents for affect and never created self-deprecating parodies of the "Northerner" to get a deal. These cats were always true school. What more could you want.

Diggers With Gratitude (in conjunction with Conscious Music and Suspect Packages) are extremely proud to present Fresh Ski & Mo Rock’s previously unreleased “The Coarse Selectors E.P.”. All tracks on the record were recorded in 1988 – 89, there are 4 vocal cuts and 5 instrumentals. “Incredible” and “Mind Positive” are the alternative / original versions and are previously unreleased. This North London duo previously released “Talking Pays”/”Pick Up On This” 12” in 1989 on the Tuff Groove label, two years later they followed this up with “The Long Awaited Paroxysm E.P.” on their own Conscious Music imprint – both of these releases are highly sought after. Fresh Ski was heavily involved in the 80’s hip hop scene and is still respected as one of the best MC’s of the era, whilst producer Mo Rock is acknowledged as one of the original crate diggers – insisting that all samples used must be original – no overused breaks here! DWG are already well known for excavating the highest quality U.S. hip hop tracks, this U.K. release is no different and will appeal to all supporters of the authentic hip hop sound. The rhymes are still fresh and the beats rock hard more than 20 years after being recorded – you have been warned - don’t sleep on the Coarse Selectors!
