As you may, or may not be aware, Boombap are taking a crew (including myself) out to this years Outlook Festival in Croatia to rock some stages and a boat party. Due to the success we had selling tickets for Boombap Festival a few weeks back, we've managed to secure some limited tickets to this years Outlook too. They're also cheaper than the main website, and with no booking fee, bonus! So if you're planning on attending Outlook this year, and don't have your ticket yet, here's your chance to get a cheaper way in.
Another sure shot from the new Luca Brazi album Dying Proof, seriously, get to know.

Fresh in stock we have the all new High Focus Records cd release from Cracker Jon & 2Late, You Can Take The Cracker Out Of Croydon. An epic debut album with some ill skits inbetween the dopeness, 2Late smacks it on the beats, a young producer most definatly on the come up, and Cracker drops his unmistakable flow and dialect with style and ease. Another great release for the High Focus power house, the double vinyl version drops in a month.
Baaad release now in, Sonnyjim's Guest Verses & Granola Breakfasts Vol.2, a stormin' buffet of the Eatgood head chef's recent features, exclusives, radio appearences and more, all spliced and diced with some very helpful breakfast tips. Press play and leave on repeat. Shit's tasty, very very tasty.
