The Prophecy - Doom Lagoon - OUT NOW!
Four crazy aliens from cornwall land the ship once again to bring you a torrent of infectious flows and brow-bouncing funk.
The quality of an LP compressed into seven tracks is heard throughout as each MC gives you no time for your attention to shift, while the clean-cut beats and airy melodies invade your mind. Each voice and style is as distinct as the next, collectively bringing a rhetoric that makes it clear these guys aren't messing about! Conveniently compact, this twenty minute release is available for free on bandcamp, so what are you waiting for?!

The Moose Funk Squad are a UK Hip Hop power group consisting of all three MC’s from legendary live band Granville Sessions as well as certified legend and long term vocal collaborator Jester Jacobs. Accompanied by SMB representative Fourni P with production from Cambridge beatsmith P739 and cuts from the infamous DJ Sugai. This is Granville Sessions, meets Organised Mess meets some of the finest production and turntablism the south east of this fine isle has to offer.
As i’ve said in the past,
we get excited a lot here at One Lion HQ. This time its for the real deal, the big one….
it’s time for a look at an EP from Devon's very own JoeBurn. The project is titled ‘Spark It Up’ and features production from beatsmiths such as Blazensein and certified legend in the game, Skitz. On top of this world class production theres vocal features from fellow southwest vibesman and soundsystem session don, Shire Roots as well as veteran ragga-hop collaborator, Deadly Hunta.
Motion Enterprise are a true-to-their-roots, straight firing hip hop collective based in Gloucester consisting of Mc’s Kadenza, Farai, Catchy P and Sketchster (who also does the lion share of production, mixing and mastering) as well as DJ Ryno and badboy beatboxer, Stromboli.
Jon Phonics is an understated but highly regarded producer who isn't scared of venturing in different directions away from hip hop and has been extremely successful in fusing various electronic styles, but is (and has been for some time) firmly routed in the scene and regularly works with the cream of the crop.
Towards the front end of this (not yet finished) summer of muddy fields and geometric patterns in the sky, we got wind of an immanent solo LP release from a relatively unknown yet extremely powerful force in the UK underground scene.
High Focus recently put the word out that they would be releasing an EP produced entirely by Dirty Dike butdidn't, at first, confirm the artist on the vocals. Keyboard theorists and inquisitive fans quickly jumped in to action and guesses as to who would belacing the beats started flying and we even had a few guesses ourselves.....and then we got news.
