A seriously tasty re-working of the tempo riddim reaches the SP bunker today, 10" stylee outta East London's Lana Sounds studio and producer Sergio Lopez. The Tempo Riddim EP drops heavy with three vocal cuts from fellow Londoner's Galak Spiritual from Onlyjoe and Clapper Priest, and Basque Country representative George Palmer, plus the dubwise. Ah boom shot!
Just one of the dope tracks given some fresh visuals from the brand new Verb T & Illinformed album, The Man With The Foggy Eyes.
More super dope Illinformed greatness today, the debut solo album The Mould Tape from this up and coming producer is set to land on the 9th of September via Real Life Drama Records. We now have a pre-order in place for the cd and vinyl versions, one seriously ill album with an all star cast. Get to know, this is very good.
Another fresh release through the door comes from the likes of Verb T & Illinformed, the magnificent sounds of The Man With The Foggy Eyes, a High Focus Records CD, vinyl version landing late September. The album is dope my friends, make sure you check it, Verb's excells himself once again, and with Illinformed on the beats the whole set bangs. We've also had a re-stock on these HF cd's too, Leaf Dog From A Scarecrow's Perspective and The Four Owls Natural Order.
Lewis Recordings deliver the fresh vinyl sounds of Kubrick unto us today, representing lovely from the big man like Stig Of The Dump, this version of the release also comes correct with a full download code too.

B-Line Recordings lace the proceedings with a crazy dope release right here, the nine track B-Line EP Vol.3 featuring a worl'a man from stateside to uk. Simply listing them all doesn't do it justice to be honest, just hit the link and check it out for yourself, shit bangs!
If you've listened to the latest SP Radio Show then you'll have checked out two unreleased Ocean Wisdom tracks, and be fully aware of his skills. The High Focus Records new signing looks set to smash the shit out of the scene very soon indeed, check the video below for his new 12" landing late September, early October. Splittin' The Racket is produced by Dirty Dike and will also feature two other jammies, the equally ill Dike produced Walkin', and the unheard 184 produced Watchin' You.

Hitting the Reggae Related Releases section today we have newness from Strictly Dub Records outta Estonia, linking us with upfront copies of their latest release Dreadlocks, it features Leeds based Danman outta the Iration Steppas crew teamed up with a massive digtial stormer built by Riddim Tuffa. Sounding super tuff in here right now, pure niceness.
Taken off the bangin' Delph Efficacy album from Res One, here's a video for the bangin' BlabberMouf feature, Wreck Shit.
Fresh heat has just landed from the KingUnderground mothership, the brand new double vinyl album Rebel Base from Cappo & Nappa, a fully fledged boom bap killathon, expect murderous screw face production from Nappa whilst Cappo goes all out on the mic control. The likes of Life MC, Rukus Regardless, Midnyte, Konny Kon, Juga-Naut & MCM also join in the attack. Another quality product from the KU fam, essential steezness.

Finally with us and looking rather fresh if we do say so ourselves, upfront and exclusive, the brand new Suspect Packages 7" release from Life MC entitled Sound System / Rastaman Soldier. A truly magical vinyl where Life takes it back to his love of Reggae and comes correct with the patois, lickin' shots and name checking a crazy amount of his influences on the A side cut, with the double A side paying tribute to his rasta roots. Each 7" comes with a digital download code that not only houses the artwork and sound files, but also a special write up from Life MC on his background within the Reggae scene. You've heard Life many a time, but not like this! All pre-orders were shipped yesterday, and we're selling copies at a special price before any store has access to wholesale stock. We hope you like it, and watch out for the mixtape...
