Chris Orrick
Portraits

Time for some self-realisation, folks. MC Chris Orrick has come into ‘Portraits’ with a harsh look at everything around him but it all bounces back inward. Opening on the loathing “Self-portrait”, he crafts a song as caustically insular and openly damning as Kendrick’s “u”, making a light, mellow beat fo...view item »

Denmark Vessey
Sun Go Nova

From urban Detroit via the heart of New York City, Denmark Vessey jettisons his latest 7-track EP, Sun Go Nova on the gigantic Mello Music Group. Punchy, kaleidoscopic soul combines with raw beats and Vessey's loose flows on a record produced by Earl Sweatshirt and Knwledge. There's oodles of charm and humour here and i...view item »

Calvin Valentine
Plush Seats

Instrumental release from hip-hop producer Calvin Valentine, who might be named after after a Hollyoaks character (though he's from Oregon, United States so probably not).

MC Paul Barman

L'Orange & Mr. Lif
The Life & Death Of Scenery

The smooth underground heads rejoice as L’Orange gets together with Mr. Lif for more webspun rap epics, melding together the former’s production with the latter’s MCing, which was pretty well celebrated on ‘Don’t Look Down’ already. Loops and turntablisms go through this record like a revolving door of lovelin...view item »
