Flipper the dolphin has gone and dropped a whole brand new album. The project features bare aquatic squad inside the submarine including some underwater cuts from my very own webbed hands. Obviously it all bangs harder than Poseidon on a bucket of Viagra and I advise you to grab a copy in water proof vinyl format immediately. A less waterproof cassette version is also available for all you die hard land dwellers.
This weekend we getting GANG AS ALL FUCK for the Boom Bap Amsterdam 3 day takeover. Catch me dropping heat waves at Holland's mighty Melkweg clurb on Saturday and then again at the legendary Cafe De Duivel spot on the Sunday. RUMPSHAK POWERHYPE 4000 #REACH #REACH #REACH

This festival holds a special triple highlighted place in any UK Hip Hop head's calendar and it's a complete no brainer that you must reach. Cop tickets here while they last

To mark the release of both Dirty Dike's “Sucking On Prawns In The Moonlight” and Verb T & llinformed 's “The Man With The Foggy Eyes” a gang of us are getting in a bus and going on the road to bring those trade mark the full force party smack down situations to a venue near you.

I will have a stack of my new Highly Focused Selections Vol. 1 mixtapes and a pile of fresh new stickers with me on the road, so come say hi if you wanna grab any.
This tour is obviously going to be heavy as fuck and I advise you to come, but If you can't see your city in the listings above don't set your cat on fire and stab yourself in face just yet. Dike and myself are currently putting together a whole second leg of tour madness, so put the lighter down and hold tight for more info. Any promoters wanting to get involved, holla.
