As the week draws to a close, we bring you the next serving of funk-laced dope from the forthcoming Lee Scott and Sly Moon album. Exobase is your second glimpse at what the full FDMB album will have in store, as the anticipation grows for the official release. Don't forget there are not one but TWO intimate launch parties going down too, with both Bristol and London showcasing the duo's new wares. More info on that can be found here. The video was made by Honey JD.
Following on from the announcement that Lee Scott and Sly Moon have made an album together, we can now treat you to the first serving of dope from the project. King of What is produced by Lee and features a ton of 90's rap references, which is the era that inspired the whole album. FDMB is due for release on 24 November.
Two doses of good news for you right here, starting with the announcement that Lee Scott and Sly Moon have made an album together. Titled FDMB (Flipping Dough Making Bread), the album is the solid gold, funk-tinted odyssey that fans of the Blah OGs have been clamouring for for years.
The second piece of good news is that the album launch is a double-whammy, featuring two nights at venues in London and Bristol. In conjunction with our friends at Super Mega Bookings, we will be taking over Hackney Social on 24 November and then heading to Bristol to do the same at Basement 45 on 26 November.
Both shows are in intimate venues, with limited capacity so be quick on the tickets. Booking info for the Bristol show is available here and for the London show here.
Milkavelli emerged from the shadows this week with a brand new video, featuring the sort of collaborations that many of us will only have dreamt about. Run It sees Milk teaming up with not only his longtime friend and collaborator, Lee Scott, but also extending his reach across the Atlantic, with a guest spot from Playboi Carti. The track is produced by OMELET and the video was made by aboveground.
Four years after the release of his last solo album, we are pleased to present the brand new single from Stinkin Slumrok. YEYEAYEA is the first taste of his forthcoming album, Stink-O-Vision, which is due for release in the not too distant future. The album will feature full production from Lee Scott and Jack Chard, who have cooked up a batch of funk-drenched beats, as this latest track demonstrates. The video was made by Honey JD, with animation from Slim Parisoo. More news on the album coming soon.
Following on from the roaring success of Lee Scott's recent takeover at Jazz Cafe, we thought it only right to stoke up another night of mayhem with Part Deux (one for the 80's and 90's kids there). This time the event is taking place at another of our spiritual homes - Bristol - where Lee and his compadres will descend upon infamous local venue, Thekla, for another night of sweg drenched entertainment. This all takes place at the start of next month on 2 October, and tickets are available now via our good friends at Super Mega Bookings. Follow the link below for more info and to secure your ticket:
To celebrate the full release of [gate clicks shut] by Lee Scott and Hyroglifics, we thought we would treat you lot to a visual triple bill of tracks from the album. Bonus Money, Simple Simonism and Tatooine Dreams are all featured in the video, along with some highly suitable animation from Josh Richardson. Following on from its accidental early release on Bandcamp, [gate clicks shut] is now available to stream and download from all the usual spots, as well as physicals and merch available over at the shop.
As if you lot weren't already hyped enough about the forthcoming release of the new album from Lee Scott and Hyroglifics, we've now got pre-orders up for grabs, as well as a look at the artwork, packaging and accompanying [gate clicks shut] merch.
First up we have the limited edition vinyl, which comes with an 8 page lyric book to keep in line with the late-90's vibe that the album oozes with. Plus printed inner sleeves featuring artwork designed by Lee himself. Shipping dates will be around 18 August and you can find the pre-orders here.
There is also a cassette version of the album, which again features the full lyrics printed on the inlay card and a recycled pearl coloured tape. It's limited to 50 copies, making it a proper collector's edition. They are shipping immediately, with order info available here.
And finally we have the Lee Scott Cross Face all over print short sleeve shirt, which features the happy and sad cross faces from the artwork over woven rayon fabric, with added breast pocket sweg. Pre-orders for the shirts are available now.
