Germany's Britcore Rawmance label lace us with three new vinyl releases, first up and finally seeing the light of day is the First Frontal Assault 12" The Punisher EP. Containing three dope demo tracks that have been remastered by No Sleep Nigel and presented in a full colour cover with insert.
There's a killer posse cut from 32 Troop, a loose collective of emcee's, dj's and producers under the watchful eye of Spatts outta the Criminal Minds crew. The Mayday 12" again comes in a full colour cover with some real dope artwork.
And finally DJ Highfly delivers another posse cut of immense proportion, Rohstoff features artists from all over Europe, backed with some extra heat outta Germany. Again, another wicked cover and insert presenting the package.
These releases go out to the original die hard Hip Hop heads down with the old skool style and fashion. Click the links and check the line ups, artwork and snippits.
And whilst i'm on an old skool tip, gotta say Rest In Peace to Gemini outta Hardnoise. Much respek to one of the foundation emcees of the UK's Hip Hop scene who sadly lost his battle with cancer yesterday.
The massive an' large Pete Cannon & Dr Syntax album Killer Combo! is now back in stock folks, a fantastic album with Pete providing the cannons and Syntax blasting off. Del The Funky Homosapien, Jehst, Dirty Dike, Lunar C, Eva Lazarus and DJ Woody also represent.
Back on it folks, and what better way then by catching up with two new High Focus videos, first up is the new Fliptrix joint Praise The Sun featuring Rag N Bone Man, as featured on our latest Suspect Packages Radio Show, and lifted off the forthcoming Molotov produced album Polyhymnia. And then there's the new Toast Jazz video lifted off the recently released self-produced Verb T album, I Remain.
Suspect Packages are currently taking a well deserved break, therefore any orders placed will not be shipped until Thursday 28th of August. Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to mailing out your packages upon our return.

Boot Records deliver the slick sounds of Cappo & Sam Zircon teamed up together on the Un:Programmable Raw (Deluxe Edition) 12". Recently released as a free download this nugget has finally made it to vinyl, complete with the Boot Remix of one of the tracks Iron Flyer. It's a limited pressing of 250 that comes in a lovely matt sleeve with a free download of the whole project. Zircon's MPC greatness sits lovely under Cappo's lyrical dexterity, a perfect combination, and nice to hear Capp's over some soothing beats, big up to the Boot crew on this one!
Brand new video Roll N Burn for ya'z, lifted from the awesome Bluntskins album Cali Cu$h.
Glasgow production outfit The Bankrupt Europeans (DJ Snafu & Fraser Syme) get ultra busy with stateside rhymer Phill Most Chill for some serious remix action, four of his most well known cuts given the treatment on The Remix EP. A massive set and sound, coming complete with full instrumentals and scratches by DJ Grazzhoppa, a limited vinyl pressing that i'm pretty sure won't be hanging around for too long. Dangerously dope.

It's a great version of Sly & Robbie's Hot Milk riddim by Hempolic's Grippa Laybourne with Nubiya and Dandelion riding the killah production, also flipped with the LSK featuring News Readers track too, again, another sure shot with a simple message aimed at today's media. Get to know.

Some of these are getting very low in numbers and you'll not find mint condition copies in many places now, just so's ya knows.
Also watch for a new label, Real Talk Records coming from Chester P in the not too distant future. There's releases getting ready from Remus and his Black Boulevard crew, and also MC Theme, so watch this space yo.
