Nominated for "Best Independent Album" at this year's prestigious AIM Awards taking place on August 12th ( https://www.aimawards.co.uk/nominees ), Husky's rare fusion of hip hop, electro, bass, dub, soul and r&b is the soundtrack for Phoenix's highly creative narrative addressing many of today's most pressing issues including climate change, racism, well being, mental health, knife crime and social aspiration, all delivered with a refreshing and optimistic counterpoint of hope, healing and reconciliation.
 
The first video from the album "The Humans are Coming" released today.  Filmed by Global Faction and UKHH, the spectacular visuals edited by Sovereign Comics represent the environmental theme portrayed as a metaphorical letter of contrition to the mythical Gaia for the damage done to her realm.

5458638454?profile=RESIZE_710xReleased today through New Dawn Records, the explosive new album "God of Barz" by Brick City's lyrical marksman Tru Trilla.

Planting a flag for both the Garden State and the classic east coast sound, the veteran rapper and Lords of the Underground affiliate has concocted an immense piece of work, rammed full of passionate bars, skillful wordplay and intelligent rhymes.  Championing the cause of the underdog, the disengaged and the traditional values of hip hop itself while tackling political tensions of racial profiling, corruption and deprivation, knockout lines are delivered with the ferocity of a prize fighter.  Newark natives Middy Murdock, Fly Kwa, Confucious and fellow 050 Boyz member Prince Ak are the featured artists, intensifying the energy with their own gritty lyricism.
 
The production brings extra layers and dynamics courtesy of Chicago's DNA Beatz, Barcelona's Sumerio Square, the UK's Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve), originally of New Jersey and now resident in Los Angeles.   Rugged, raw and hardwired into the psyche of the street, this one's for the heads.

London's rapper / producer duo Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown have today released their highly impressive new album "Panacea" through New Dawn Records.

As a member of Triple Darkness, Phoenix has long been regarded by many both at home and overseas as one of the most gifted lyricists to emerge from the UK. Husky's productions are a rare and dynamic fusion of contemporary hip hop, electronica, dub, bass, r&b and soul which provide the soundtrack for a narrative addressing many of today's most pressing issues. Delivered with trademark dexterous rhymes and creative wordplay, Phoenix sets his existential sights on the environment, mental health, knife crime, racism, well being, relationships and inner city life.

Facing the challenges head on, the engaging commentary still retains a refreshing message of hope at its core related through metaphorical concepts as abstract as they are grounded in reality. A multidimensional and unique debut offering which pushes boundaries and breaks from formulaic convention. Essential listening.

London's rapper & producer duo Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown warm up for the release of their phenomenal new album "Panacea" on May 5th with this new single "The Humans are Coming" b/w "Travelling Buddy" out today through New Dawn Records.
 
As expected of the Triple Darkness member, Phoenix combines the highest caliber rhyme skills and imaginative wordplay to tackle many of the most pressing issues facing society today, none more so than in the new AA side.  Amidst the frenzy of Husky's highly charged electronica fuelling "The Humans are Coming", Phoenix pens a letter of contrition to the mythological Gaia for the damage done to her environment, while the atmospheric "Travelling Buddy" is a poignant message of empathy & support to all facing the challenges of mental health issues.

North west London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan has today released his new album "S.C.U.M." through Miami label 22 Entertainment.
Long considered as one of the most creative and gifted lyricists at the forefront of the UK's burgeoning rap scene, he also spent time in NYC where early comparisons dubbed him "the new Slick Rick" while working with the late Sean Price, Sav Killz, Prince Po and Dead Prez. 

Featuring Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin, "S.C.U.M." is produced entirely by one of England's hottest new emerging names Agor, his sophisticated and lavish soundscapes providing the perfect backdrop for charismatic portrayals of an irrepressible underclass. Stylish and compelling, a series of bold, satirical and uncomprimising rhymes intelligently depict contemporary aspirations, and reaffirms his international reputation as a serious force in rap's new wave.

New video "Velvet Cake" by northwest London rapper Da Flyy Hooligan, taken from his "F.Y.L.P.M." EP released earlier this year.
Produced by NCL TM, the beat blasts out a cacophony of brass and soul samples over which DFH gets creative delivering trademark dexterous wordplay and high calibre rhyme schemes. On the track title he simply states "When you've had the best red velvet cake from Lords Bakery in Flatbush, Brooklyn, you'll understand why I named this jawn - definitions of deliciousness".

Directed by The Ol' Cyruss in London, the theme of the video is an ode to Ghostface Killah's "Supreme Clientele" album cover, employing imagery as a pastiche of retro cinema and film noir.

Da Flyy Hooligan's new album "S.C.U.M." featuring Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin releases worldwide on CD and digital formats through Miami label 22 Entertainment on October 27th.
