HAICH – CONVERSATIONS [VIDEO]

London-based producer Haich releases a new video for recent single ‘Conversations‘.  It’s his first self-­directed video; “a hypnotic re-­imagining of two characters experiencing constant interaction (both digitally and physically) throughout their day whilst longing for the comfort of being alone.”  It’s beautifully done, an impressive directorial debut from Haich that matches the track’s experimental sound perfectly.  Stream…

SKEPTA – PURE WATER

Last Halloween Skepta gifted us the ‘Vicious‘ EP.  This year he’s dropped off a new video for May’s standalone single ‘Pure Water‘.  It’s a mostly black-and-white [and occasionally red] clip that sees Skepta, well, cleaning his teeth and taking a bath – but probably not in the same settings you and I might.  Stream below via…

MICK JENKINS – PIECES OF A MAN

Mick Jenkins’ long-awaited sophomore album is here, and ‘Pieces Of A Man’ is well worth the wait.  Asked about the meaning behind the album, the Chicago MC said it’s “just as simple as it sounds.  It could definitely be broken down into a couple different things.  I think there’s a lot to unpack but essentially…

808INK’s new album is about “Motivation to get your money,” Mumblez Black Ink tells Dazed, “Enjoy yourself, because we’re young, we’re cool, and life is for livin’”.  The follow-up to last year’s ‘When I’m About You’ll Know‘ is every bit as boisterous, and this time comes with features from Kojey Radical, Prynce Mini and House…
