Kicking off with the dull, throbbing beats of ‘Ze Money’, Bonded In Bombs is a six-track tour de force that shows why Scottish hip-hop is one of the last bastions of free expression. The accents might be regional, but the music and the message refuse to be constrained by manmade frontiers: love, alienation and red machetes are universal themes.
Mog scatters lyrics like paint on a Jackson Pollock, spattering tracks with the sort of imagery that would keep war veterans up at night. Along the way, the Mog-ZA juggernaut stops briefly to pick up Becca Starr and Adam Holmes to provide consonant vocals on ‘No, No, No’. Becca Starr also appears on ‘Straight From The Soul’, while Nostal guests on the disturbing ‘Whatever, Fuck You’. Edinburgh is also represented on the EP by Werd, who provides bars on the Skip James-indebted ‘Killin Floor’.
Bonded In Bombs is defined by hypnotic beats, effortless lyricism and a smattering of naggingly-insistent hooks that counterbalance the EP’s more psychotic moments.
Lead single ‘Ze Money’ is accompanied by a gritty, film noir video that will leave the viewer sleeping with the lights on and the curtains drawn.
The EP can be downloaded on Amazon or Itunes

Now listening to this took me back a few years... Back when I was 16, Double P were pretty much the dopest thing imaginable, and I was always disappointed that the group disbanded before their huge potential was anywhere near being fulfilled.
Here, Reveal does his bit for memory lane by dropping a 28 track (!!) lost tapes project. Many of these tunes have been released before, so you may recognise a fair amount of the material here. That said, there is still quite a lot of material that is new to me, and I was a pretty avid PP fan.

At long last, some new material from Mr YG. This mixtape has been a long time coming, as he's been mentioning it, on and off, for about the last 4 years. He describes this as unreleased material, with a few tasters of things to come. Plenty of niceness on here, Time To Rearrange in particular is classic Yungun, especially for a freebie. The format is pretty original as well. Structured as an old style cassette tape, each 'side' is a distinct mix from long time collaborator Mr. Thing.
All 3 J-Lives (MC, Producer & DJ) feature in this new video for the Marco Polo produced track, The Authentic. I've not yet got round to checking his latest album, S.P.T.A, and I will need to rectify this situation soon...

Ok, this is now starting to make some sense... If you had clocked some the hype for a crew called "The Owls", who have an album upcoming on High Focus records, and like me were thinking something like "who the fuck are these nobodies I've never heard of?"... then you should check out this lead video for the album. It turns out that The Four Owls is in fact High Focus representatives Fliptrix, Leaf Dog, BVA MC and the omnipresent Verb T. So now you, and I, know...
This seemed to drop with little or no fanfare a couple of weeks back, so I hope you can excuse me the late pass... The latest from Lee Scott and Salar, this is an 8 track project which is available for free download from the front page of www.blahrecords.com
Another video here from Genesis Elijah. This is taken from his free EP 'I Ain't Even Charging Bruv', that dropped earlier this year (and can be downloaded here: http://www.mediafire.com/?c6fff97bxacd5t5 )
