Limited edition of 300 copies incl. all instrumentals on grey colored vinyl!

Harleighblu heard Bluestaeb’s music for the first time in London’s Jazz Café in 2016 and approached him to work on an album shortly after that. The multinational duo decided to search for new ways to express their common love for uncompromised hip-hop and R&B. Bluestaeb’s soulful approach to beat making complements Harleighblu’s performance perfectly as she stakes her claim on the neo soul and hip-hop territory she always identified with as an artist. Speaking about the collaboration Bluestaeb says: “When I got the first demo recordings from Harleighblu, I was blown away. I’ve worked with multiple singers before, but this time I felt that somebody finally really knew how to handle my beats properly and turn them into songs.“ Their debut project “She” achieves a distinctive sound that merges old school aesthetics with a new school attitude and organic instrumentation, progressive neo soul and beat heavy hip-hop, whilst Harleighblu’s unique vocals push through the sonic boundaries of R&B. “She” was recorded at Manolo Purple Studio, the Berlin homebase of Bluestaeb and his longtime collaborator S. Fidelity, who recorded, executive produced and mixed the album and accompanied the artists throughout the entire creative process. The record also features Blue’s Jakarta Records label mate JuJu Rogers and a variety of instrumentalists hailing from the UK, France and Germany.

Harleighblu introduced herself in 2013 with the charismatic, beat-heavy soul of her Tru Thoughts debut LP “Forget Me Not”, which was championed by 1xtra’s Mistajam and BBC 6 Music’s Don Letts. Since then she has not looked back, garnering critical acclaim for her unique style from the likes of Complex, Dummy, The Line Of Best Fit and Clash to name but a few. She has performed at prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Kendal Calling, Boomtown and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide festival.

Hailed as an up and coming ‘queen of soul’ with references to Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse, Harleighblu’s signature sound has matured into a frank, self-possessed voice that pulls no punches and makes no apologies. Bringing us honest, feminine, yet unrepentant lyrical touches and establishing herself as one of the UK's most promising young artists.

On the other hand, Bluestaeb made his name through his releases via German tastemaker label Jakarta Records, where he released alongside Kaytranada, Ta-Ku and Mura Masa. His solo efforts ‘Rodalquilar’ (2015) and ‘Everything Is Always a Process’ (2018) and his collaboration project “LIT - Lost In Translation” with rapper JuJu Rogers have been internationally praised for their warm characteristic sound receiving airplays on Soulection, BBC 1, Rinse.FM and many more. His works have amassed more than 20 million streams and Bluestaeb has played shows and festival all over Europe, including Melt Festival and splash! Festival.

The Streets’ first two albums ‘Original Pirate Material’ and ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ helped to make the UK hip-hop/garage scene a force to be reckoned with on a global scale, and established Mike Skinner as a lyricist with a gift for delivering insightful observations about everyday life. Long out of print, both albums will be repressed and released on double vinyl on March 30th.

Featuring the breakthrough hit ‘Has It Come To This’ and era-defining anthems such as ‘Weak Become Heroes’ and ‘Let’s Push Things Forward’, it made Skinner a spokesman for a generation.

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.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
First Word Records are very proud to present an EP by Manchester's finest Hip Hop and Soul exports, Children of Zeus. This is 'The Story So Far…'
Konny Kon & Tyler Daley met back in 2005, after both performing a show near Paris in their respective crews, Broke'N'£nglish and Body Roq. The duo met up back home in Manchester, spurred on initially by a mutual admiration of each others music, and produced their first track together, aptly entitled 'Coming Home To You'.
A few years later, Tyler approached Konny about producing a full EP together. These sessions included the creation of a track called 'Still Standing', which ultimately saw the light of day last Summer on First Word. Still a highlight in their live sets, the Lenzman rub won "Best Remix" at the 2016 Drum & Bass Awards. The original has become somewhat of a British Soul anthem since its release, with people that missed it first time round still clamouring for it on wax. So we've included it on this EP.
As they've grown within the family of Manchester's music scene, they've provided a tonic to the city's bass-orientated club scene, breathing Soul back into the city, whilst maintaining their heritage of Hip Hop swagger. As an MC, Konny takes no prisoners, whilst Tyler (a prolific MC in his own right) has gained a rep as one of the UK's strongest Soul voices. Both artists have been blessed with the talent of beat-making. A combined craftsmanship upon the boards and in the booth.
From building a grassroots following of fans, they've since travelled the globe, sharing stages with giants and catching the ear of peers far and wide, from Pete Rock to Zed Bias. As well as hosting their own monthly radio show on NTS, they've collaborated with numerous Hip Hop acts, both sides of the Atlantic, as well as Soul royalty in the form of Caron Wheeler and Drum'n'Bass legends, such as Goldie (Tyler featuring heavily across his latest album).
Children of Zeus have finally begun the process of crafting together their debut album. This EP is a compilation of the creations the duo have produced themselves over the past decade, put together to appease their loyal followers thus far, and as an introduction to those yet to discover their talents. A snapshot of what has been, and a mere taster of what's to come. It features brand new tracks such as 'Smoke With Me' and (vinyl-only cut) 'Tonight', the anthemic 'Crown' (featured on First Word's 'Two Syllables' compilation previously) and fan favourites such as 'No Sunshine Tomorrow' and 'Push On'. A collection of raw, gritty, Hip Hop Soul music.

A long time ago in London…

The VILLAIN was laying low on the fog shrouded Tin Islands when Bishop’s X-Wing crashed into his swamp. It was April 2013, and that’s a metaphor for Bishop’s first meeting with DOOM before a show at the 100 Club. The future collaborators were booked to play in the tiny ancient jazz venue with Ghostface Killah that night.

A month earlier Bishop had been co-signed on stage at SXSW by Nas. There was mad anticipation for his next project. Stakes were high. At the 100 Club, VILLAIN saw what Nas had seen, a real MC.
In the Village Voice end of year round up for 2014 they reflected on the album, #2 in their best rap albums list:

There’s a good few decades between the New York City-raised (but now exiled-in-London) MF DOOM and the upstate-residing Bishop Nehru, but listening to their hip-hop tryst, it’s as if they’ve been plugged in to the same creative zone all along. The formula here is simple: DOOM produces, Bishop raps, and on occasion the curmudgeonly supervillain with the “Brillo Pad beard” also deigns to grab the mic, but it’s the duo’s shared off-kilter sensibility that gels the listening experience. And when they team up for the positivity-packed “Great Things,” it’s as if Doom has temporarily let his mask drop to embrace a nostalgic revisiting of the original K.M.D. vibe.

Amongst many swell reviews the mini-album caught a lot of criticism. Not least because it was so short, just 32 minutes. To mark the 5th anniversary, we’ve reduced the running time to 27 minutes.

In the months that followed Metal Fingers sent Bishop Yousendit links to folders of beats and Bishop laid down bars. The two worked remotely and then followed up with sessions in the studio.

The maestro himself puts down the drums and hand picks the melodies based on an interesting array of samples he discovered, but wanted to hear and then record these riffs played live.

DEF is Funky DL’s very first album where every single track has a featured artist. This includes the UK's Hip-Hop jewel Klashnekoff, DL's long time collaborator Sienna, newcomer Stee Moglie and the legendary Xantoné Blacq making their memorable vocal appearances during the course of this brilliant summer filled set, which really is truly DEF.

2LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Melting Pot Music)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Debut album by UK trio following their “Undertones” EP on Meltin Pot
Music, the label that brought you Twit One, FloFilz, Suff Daddy, Brenk
Sinatra, Dexter and others!
"Uhuru" is the debut album by Summers Sons & C.Tappin from London and Bristol.
The journey of this album started back in 2015 and was inspired by the people and
places of Tanzania. After three years of channelling the vibe into beats and bars, it is
finally here!
Summers Sons are Turt (rap) + Slim (beats) who are actually brothers. They are
longtime friends with vocalist and pianist C.Tappin. Their music can be described as
rap with a lot of jazz. We like to call it cool bap.
Turt first got into hip-hop through Grime but also cites UK wordsmith Jehst as a
major influence. Slim was doing UK Garage for a while, when his brother asked him
for some more chilled beats to rap to. Tappin came up in a musical family, picked up
the piano as a kid and played in indie bands.
With such diverse backgrounds Summers Sons and C.Tappin are not your average
rap group. They would actually rather name their crew a band. Which makes total
sense when you catch them live. Slim slices up the beats on his SP404. Tappin gets
busy on the keys and adds vocal harmonies while Turt holds down the vibe on the
mic, spitting lyrics with a message.
Still only in their early twenties Turt, Slim and Tappin are somehow old souls when it
comes to music. If you listen to "Uhuru" you are unmistakably reminded of the
Soulquarians school of fusing hip-hop, soul and jazz. Follow the Sons' "Road To
Uhuru" playlist on Spotify and you are treated with gems from D'Angelo, Dilla, Badu
and Bilal back to back with new UK Jazz tunes from Alfa Mist or Ezra Collective.
Rounded up with a selection of dusty beats from German beatmakers like Hubert
Davis and Twit One. On their own songs Summers Sons and C.Tappin are
connecting these dots in their very own style and fashion.
While Slim had already released beats on Banoffee Pies and Brownswood, Turt and
Tappin made their official debut on the "Hay Luv" album by Twit One , who they had
met when he played a DJ gig in Bristol some years ago. With the release of the
Summers Sons' "Undertones" EP on MPM in early 2018 the London - Cologne
connection became official. The six tracker introduced the sound of the Summers
and Tappin to a bigger audience and included remixes by FloFilz and Twit One.
Now get yourself ready for "Uhuru" ! To learn more about the album we recommend
the liner notes: We’re all as simple complex as the next man. No one really comes
correct with a set plan. It’s all guesswork. Feet stepping, Keep checking with my
head first.

Whether as a collective or on their individual merits, the reputation of The Four Owls cannot be messed with, nor questioned, now more so than ever. With the imminent release of their second album entitled 'Natural Order', The Four Owls are perched, ready to swoop in for the kill, and in true Owl fashion, the prey (the listener) will have no idea what hit them. As classic as it was, it seems their first record, the wildly popular 'Nature's Greatest Mystery', was simply a stepping stone to this point, luring in the listeners to what certainly is the next level, and true of all great predators, by this point its too late to escape.
As one would expect the four seasoned MC's, Fliptrix, Leaf Dog, Verb T & BVA all deliver the goods. Now a tightly knit unit after a few years on the road together, their chemistry on and off stage is unparalleled, and their conceptual approach is sharper than ever. Tackling subjects from assassinations, heartfelt confessions, to prejudice and karma to absolutely everything in between the Owls have produced one of the most cohesive albums in recent times, hitting the nail on the head with each track. Carrying on the tradition begun on 'Nature's Greatest Mystery', label mates Dirty Dike and Jam Baxter both make appearances once more, newcomer Smellington Piff is also added to the mix. The album is jam packed to the brim with that soulful sound, Leaf Dog leaves no stone unturned production wise, proving to be a true master of his craft, and has created an album that unfolds like a classic… Like all REAL classics past, present and future; the legendary DJ Premier is involved in some shape or form.
High Focus Records is proud to announce that this album is no exception to the golden rule, as the colossal 'Think Twice' is produced by the man himself, serving as the cherry on top to to this modern day masterpiece.
The Four Owls are Hip Hops top predator and they are here to restore the 'Natural Order' amongst the chaos.

You Are Not Special
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Starch)
6,74 €* 26,99 € -75%
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited edition vinyl!

Since the 80s, rampant individualism has been promoted through every aspect of our culture to create a zeitgeist of self-absorbed banality. In response to this, south London rapper Big Toast has teamed up with beat making duo Ill Move Sporadic to produce a misanthropic musical manifesto in album form entitled ‘You Are Not Special’ - the ninth release from London based label Starch Records.
Combining crunching, atmospheric, sample-based backdrops, Ill Move Sporadic have upped their game a good few notches since their last release “Panic Room 9”, which took the scene (and BBC 6 Lauren Laverne) by storm last year. True to form Ill Move sporadic bring their trademark sound - a sound built on an obvious love of Hip Hop and beat making but also on classic out board equipment like EMU and AKAI - original breaks and rugged basslines tear through every track setting the tone for the album. Sparse crunchy samples, instrumental stabs and tightly chopped loops provide Toast with the perfect soundscape to deliver his sharp, sarcastic social commentary, something Ill Move Sporadic specialize in.
Big Toast doesn’t hold back commenting on modern life as he sees it. Subjects vary from the gentrification of London to his passionate hate of the Tories. He holds no bars, an outpouring of frustration delivered in a comedic and musical way but with heavy hitting, thought provoking undertones.

“This album marks the point where I stopped giving any fraction of a fuck what anyone else thinks. It is the sort of music I wanted to hear but wasn’t hearing. It’s the antidote to inspirational memes and narcissistic bullshit” - Big Toast
“There’s loads of subtle reference to old classic inspiration, whether in lyrics or the beats.
These are the beats and tracks we wanted to make, in our way. We don’t give a fuck about what anyone thinks, we know It’s right” – Ill Move Sporadic

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.

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.

The mighty Oxygen returns to AE Productions with a highly anticipated full-length album produced entirely by the multi-talented Tea Sea Records owner and producer/MC Tom Caruana.
Anyone familiar with AE Productions releases will know that Oxygen has been rolling with us for many years so we’re hyped to be able to release his debut solo long player. His first AE appearance was on the now classic Phill Most Chill & Paul Nice Fabreeze Brothers album on the track Golden Crown back in 2015, then in 2017 alongside his Soundsci cohorts Audessey (Jack Jones) and U-George featuring on the debut Cut Beetlez 12” single Droppin’ Needles and most recently in 2018 AE dropped his Body Language 7” produced by Paul Nice, which does not appear on the LP.
The aptly titled Age Appropriate was released on download and on physical pre-order on Oxygen’s 50th birthday and the long wait was worth it! This is Hip Hop through the lens of an MC that has a vast experience in the world of Hip Hop and life in general and covers an array of topics, some personal and some of the verbal word play dexterity that we have come to expect from one of the finest and underrated MC’s around today.
Some track titles may be familiar such as ‘Guillotine 16’s’, ‘The Process’ and ‘33.3’ that have previously appeared as single releases but presented here are all brand new versions that had a better fit with the overall soundscape co-ordinated by Tom Caruana so every track on the album is new material.
We’re also treated to some help from Emskee, Dr Becket, Jesus Mason, BusCrates, Apani B, Jack Jones and U-George plus some turntable duties covered by DJ Presyce and Jazz Spastiks. The timeless design by artwork supremo Mr Krum perfectly encapsulates the contents of the album.

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.

With attitude by the bucket load and the skills set to match, Datkid has been churning out high quality music ever since, featuring on a plethora of projects as well as releasing his own monumental solo album ‘Teeth Ledger’ alongside producer Baileys Brown. Datkid has proven to be an exceptional MC, displaying the perfect balance of technical brilliance and hardcore ‘I don’t give a F***’ sensibilities – consistently stealing the show on any track he appears on.

livello. Scritto da un mc di un altro
spessore, di un altro livello" - Rap

Born in Dublin, yet grew up in both Germany & Switzerland, to mastering his craft in Manchester, producer
Pitch 92 is indeed a 3rd Culture kid. Being exposed to a wide variety of cultural influences from a young age, the
extensively traveled & worldly wise beatsmith is here to share his vision of the world along with a few friends on
his debut album ‘3rd Culture’.
Following on from the trailblazing 'Lost In Space EP', Pitch 92 is gearing up to drop his debut full length album
'3rd Culture'. As we have to come to expect from Pitch 92, this record boasts 17 expertly produced tracks
featuring the crème de la crème of UK talent - '3rd Culture' is a gargantuan Hip Hop masterpiece. Reading like
the 'who's who' of the UK Hip Hop & R'n'B scenes, the list of featured artists alone should be enough reason to
check out this record: The Four Owls, Jehst, Foreign Beggars, Tyler Dayley (Children Of Zeus), Coops,
Fliptrix, Verb T, Sparkz, DRS, Layfullstop, Marie Plassard, Jerome Thomas, Mysdiggi, King Kashmere, Dr
Syntax, Micall Parknsun, Jazz T & many more...
The ever versatile Pitch 92 manages to create the perfect foundation for each of his guests to expand upon,
blessing each production with his signature swing and keen ear for melody, resulting in a very strong and cohesive
body of work. To put it bluntly, Pitch 92, makes very sick beats and has crafted one of the most important Hip
Hop albums of 2019!

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.

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.

Bad Taste presents the vinyl edition of cult classic 'Lighthouse Tape'. Originally released in 2015 but now re-issued on wax with a bonus new track 'COMPOUND'.

Trellion lives in a lighthouse, situated inland, possibly due to the highly probable threat of oncoming large scale floods. His sweg level was an insult to the gods. He's been making a mark on the scene for the last few years with his accidental take on rap that that is akin to the movements of an internet troll, Trellion aka “lil heart attack” rightfully secures your attention from the moment you hear his distinctive drawl and sedated tone.

As one quarter of Cult Mountain, he has dropped strange and exciting music over the last few years that has gained attention from the likes of Alchemist, Knxwledge, Da$h & Retch to name a few.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
We are very happy to finally present The Dots LP to you all. This album is the result of Koncise and MoSik actually getting together to write and record the album in the studio and then spending the last year or so polishing it up and fine tuning it into this gem we have before us.

The duo also brought in Ayo (Jungle Brown) during these sessions to record Sax on 'Cinnamon' 'Trippin' and 'Bodied'.

The album is described to have a kind of Ying & Yang element to it as it reflects the light and the dark, with side A of the record being the light and side B being dark, more trippy and spaced out due to the state of mind these artists were in at the time.

Production wise The Dots proudly struts it's stuff with that golden sound of Hip Hop with elements of Jazz, Soul and chopped breaks laced with some funky flows and wordplay. Press play and ask yourself... are you not entertained?

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Tune after tune, Coops consistently delivers truly original and unique music, his newest single 'Jetpack' taken from the recently announced 'No Brainer' project is no exception. Twist up a paper plane and take flight with Coops as he transports us out of the mundane into completely uncharted territory with this perfectly executed audio/visual experience. At High Focus Records, we are firm believers in artistic freedom, so when an artist as versatile as Coops delivered this 14 track project, it was a ‘No Brainer’ to share these highly innovative creations with the world.
'Jetpack', alongside previous singles 'That J azz', 'Bob Dylan' & 'What You Want' can all be found on Coops' forthcoming 'No Brainer' project which is now available to pre order on limited edition splatter vinyl, CD, cassette tape and on all digital platforms. This forthcoming record showcases Coops' versatility and creative approach to his craft displaying a broad palette of sounds and moods. The cosmic cover art shows the two sides of the brain, representing the different approaches Coops has taken when crafting this project, ranging from experimental modern soundscapes to that classic Hip Hop sound. 'No Brainer' isn’t really a album but more an experiment... I made most of these tracks alongside music I'd been making for an album... People have always tried to categorise me as a "Boom-Bap artist" but that I have never been. I am constantly making music of different styles and never work on one project at a time. Sadly some of these tracks never see the light of day, even though they are still of high quality and sick, so this time it was a No Brainer' that I put some of these tracks out.' - Coops

Genre:Hip Hop
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.

2LP | 2018 | EU | Original (BBE)
25,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
UK hip hop’s original and best live band are back
with brand new album ‘Bring Out The Sound’,
released in February 2018 on BBE Music. Founded
in the early 90s by Ollie Teeba and Jake Wherry,
The Herbaliser have earned every single accolade
they’ve received during almost 25 years of touring
and recording. Best known for delivering a series of
groundbreaking albums on Ninja Tune and
providing one of the all-time highlights of the
‘Fabric Live’ mix series, The Herbaliser’s most
recent LP ‘There Were Seven’ was issued on their
own ‘Department H’ imprint back in 2012. Having
worked with hip hop royalty such as Jazzy Jef and
Pete Rock over the years, not to mention releasing
J Dilla’s frst and last solo albums, BBE are
delighted to share in The Herbaliser’s musical
journey.
Inviting a carefully chosen group of guest vocalists
to join them in their London studio, ‘Bring Out The
Sound’ presents a diverse blend of soulful songs,
hip hop bangers and original instrumental funk
breaks, made all the more impressive by its
complete absence of sampling, an album from the
heat of The Herbaliser. Famous for his pop smash
‘Starz In Their Eyes’ (sadly as relevant now as it
ever was), Camden vocalist Just Jack lays down an
incredibly moving performance over lush horns
and strings on the instant classic ‘Seize The Day’.
The London Posse’s own Rodney P spits lyrical fre
alongside 28Luchi over the reggae-infused,
unmistakably British beats of ‘Like Shaft’. Former
Senseless Things member and Libertines
collaborator Mark Keds creates an almost
uncomfortably intimate, confessional atmosphere
on the intensely personal ’20 Years To The Day’.
Compared by Mark Ronson to a young Minnie
Ripperton, UK singer STAC’s voice cuts through
with a breathy kind of clarity on ‘Over and Over’.
But the Herbaliser band has always been so much
more than the sum of its collaborators. Languid,
powerful hip hop beats and uncompromising
production values underpin impressive
performances by all the band members, especially
the horn section who track after track, turn in
vintage performances. These guys make it all
sound so easy that by the time we reach
‘Takedown’, a track that sounds for all the world
like a forgotten b-boy anthem by The Incredible
Bongo Band.

LP | 2018 | UK | Original (Omerta)

Release:2018 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
South Central, Los Angeles rapper G Perico has established himself as one of the most promising and consistently great voices in West Coast hip hop over the past year with his updated take on classic gangster rap. Having already released a full-length album in All Blue earlier this year and recently following it up with the G-Worthy project that sees him joining forces with rapper Jay Worthy and super-producer Cardo, Perico is now announcing a third album. 2 Tha Left picks up where All Blue left off and showcases a prolific young rapper who is relentless about honing his craft and is getting better with every new verse he records.

The album features LA rappers TeeCee4800, AD, and Polyester alongside Northern California's Nef The Pharaoh and Mozzy in addition to the legendary New Orleans rapper Curren$y. Production on the project is characterized by a modern take on classic G-Funk courtesy of longtime collaborators Poly Boy, Polyester, Westside Webb, and Cardo amongst others.

Omerta Inc will be bringing another G Perico project to vinyl. Having previously worked with him last year on the classic tape 'Shit Don't Stop.
