Listen
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.

Listen
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!

Sonic fissures sizzle the bacon they ain't faking "Blow your zip code". A subterranean world of street wisdom and Cosmo-ghettology. Sensational spits grit over the grit, keep them swaying as they stagger from grey luminous fog coming in off the Atlantic. A cohesive nugget of rolling energy "My presidential Rolex". Kruton whips up jagged shards of rhythm into the air. Elaborate thought processes conveyed through instinctive vocal responses "Cake!". Weapons grade Prana, hooks and bass.

The album is supported by a stellar cast of producers including Rustie, Mele, Mikey, Blue and long-time collaborator Fraster T Smith. Fans have already had a taster in the form of recent tracks ‘Hail’, ‘New Banger’ and ‘GarageSkank’ , yet the album goes much deeper, offering an autobiographical narrative, lyrically guiding you from the opening track.

'Divide And Exit' is another Sleaford Mods-release on the elusive Nottingham-based low-profile Harbinger Sound label. 'Divide And Exit' contains 14 tracks that are as much in your face as those on their vicious predecessor. Whilst Fearn's beats and loops will pull you up into the urgency of Sleaford Mods, they also allow you to run the gauntlet from delibrate clumsy dance-floor swaggers to full-on punk throwabouts. Williamson is let free to spit out his unempathic litany of bile and anger towards the bloated and tedious.

Executively produced and heavily scored by iconic MC/producer Jehst, Stig Of The Dump’s latest album ‘Kubrick' is a story rife with gritty comedy and honest tragedy. What begins as a braggadocio-laden rap album effortlessly plot twists into an open and poetic autobiography; a story arc reflected in the continually developing soundtrack. The script bursts with geeky film references, dexterous wordplay and poignant story telling, while the musical backdrop morphs seamlessly between classic boom-bap and left-field, spaced-out glitch-hop.

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.

High Focus Records is proud to present the release of Dabbla’s debut solo album ‘Year Of The Monkey’. With all the makings of a real game changer, ‘YOTM’ offers the most revealing insight into Dabbla’s multi-faceted style to date, showcasing sides of the lyricist previously unseen among his extensive back catalogue. Charismatic (no end), outlandish, crude (of course), at times brutally honest, at other times downright hilarious, electrically sharp and endlessly on point (standard), the prolific crew member, party starter and all-round badman has crafted an LP primed to not only breathe life back into rap music, but flip it DIRECTLY on its head. As Dabbla explains...

No, there are no piano exercises on the new EP. Player Piano is a Vonnegutian reference to the old school way/beat of things. Borka sticks to his distinctive style - simple head nod beats without trendy production tricks, just the decades old technique of stealing, sampling, chopping and gluing. With one guest appearance, emcee N'toko.It is hard to believe that Player Piano is only the sophomore EP by the label's head tastemaker. And it is even harder to understand that it has been more than four years since his still very popular What Sticks. Between the two EPs Borka has kept himself busy octopus style: playing records, promoting club nights, running a label, working on two radio stations, writing as a music journalist and having a band.

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.”

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.”

High Focus Records stalwart, Dirty Dike, not usually one to hold his tongue, is making a return to the airwaves this April without even saying a word. This time letting the beats do the talking for him, as he continues to gain as much respect for his production as he does on the microphone. After having produced Rag N Bone Man's critically acclaimed 'Put That Soul On Me' 12'' as well as one of the biggest breakthrough tunes of 2014, 'Walking', for phenomenal newcomer Ocean Wisdom, the second official installment of the 'A Dirty Dike Production...' series is upon us! This time around the outspoken rapper turned instrumentalist has enlisted none other than incomparable Northern lyricist supreme Lee Scott for a full length LP of that straight up unadulterated buttery Jazz Funk aptly titled 'Butter Fly'.Following the tried and tested 1 producer 1 MC formula which has been responsible for some of Hip Hop's most classic and cohesive albums, the pair blend seamlessly together as both the production and the lyrics complement one another perfectly. Veering off from the thick soul sound of ‘Put That Soul On Me’ with Rag N Bone Man, Dike has opted to go for a more Jazzy approach. The album is densely packed with smoked out, nonchalant jazzy blends which provide the perfect musical bedding for an equally cool as a cucumber Lee Scott to deploy his effortless, hilarious and incisive social commentary to great effect. As Lee Scott puts it himself, he is that 'cool Daddy Boney M was going on about' and he always, always keeps it fly, totally money and utmost buttery.

Onoe Caponoe has consistently displayed an evolution in originality, experimentation, creativity and intergalactic psychedelic space travel through which his fans have faithfully followed him through every quadrant of the galaxy relishing in its hallucinatory and other worldly properties. In doing so he has become one of the most progressive and exciting artists in the London music scene, pushing the inter-dimensional envelope further into the multi coloured cosmos than any of his contemporaries who seem glued to the earth’s mundane concrete surface.

Lewis Parker is undoubtedly one of the best UK producers/MC. Now living in New York but originally from Canterbury, the UK producer started his hip hop career while still only a teenager and released B Boy Antiks and Rise through Trevor Jackson's Bite It label. The EP and 12" featured some of the finest production to come out of the UK hip hop scene. It took a long time for him to sign an album deal, eventually going with Massive Attack's Virgin imprint Melankolic where he released "Masquerades & Silhouettes" in 1998, which went on later to sell tens of thousands of copies.A few albums deep now and having worked with some of the biggest rappers on the planet, such as Ghostface Killah, (Wu-Tang-Clan) Planet Asia (EP coming soon), Steele (Smith n Wesson) Jehst, Klashnekoff, Ace Lover, Tah Born, Dynas, & more, Lewis Parker has just recently dropped an album with rapper John Robinson (formerly of the group Scienze of Life) called International Summers, which was available on CD & LP with a limited bonus instrumental cassette tape.Lewis Parker’s new project "The Puzzle: Episode 1 - The Big Game" will be released in several episodes. CurrentlyLewis Parker doesn’t know himself how many parts there will be, but what we can tell you is that "The Puzzle: Episode 2 - The Glass Ceiling" is all ready to go and will surface on a limited vinyl pressing later in 2011.

To celebrate their first decade the label have put together some 10" vinyl releases (what else!) with a selection of some of the best releases of the last 10 years. The second, subtitled 'Most Wanted' pulls together 4 tracks that have never previously been released on wax. Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra's 'African Kings' taken from their self-titled debut album is a surefire slab of afro-dynamite! We've also added the much slept-on belter from Red - 'The Nuts' is a Danny Breaks-esque instrumental hip hop classic. The EP is rounded out with two great remixes featuring some very special guest vocalists. First up, kidkanevil's 2007 classic 'Good Morning, What's New?' featuring soul sister Andreya Triana is given a cinematic funk rework from our good friend Capstone (currently to be seen on tour with long-time collaborator Quantic). Finally Homecut's 'Time Difference' featuring J-Live is given the treatment by the legendary Marc Mac (4Hero), with a little help from the Steve Miller Band.

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.

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.

"Left Hand Path" is an ode to the other, the outside, the odd and uncanny; a window to the wilds of theoutdoors from the crushing claustrophobia of the rat race. Musically, the new Aspects album deftly treads the light beam divide of old and new - at times dusty-fingered and familiar, yet finding moments of un-quantized lo-fi sci-fi - not far from L.A.'s Low End Theory sound buffet.
