Jam Baxter - Fetch the Poison is Out Now

Jam Baxter - Fetch the Poison is Out Now-Blah Records

Following on from the news that Jam Baxter had been working on a new album, last week saw its full release into the unsuspecting world. Fetch the Poison was crafted during a Mexican lockdown, in which Baxter found himself without the intoxicating ingredients that normally supplement his creative process. You wouldn't know it from the result though, with his pen game still verging into the deep and dark territories that have earned him his notoriety over the years. Production comes from the likes of Forest DLG, Jack Danz, Wundrop, Dr Zygote and Lenkemz, as well as features from his international cabal of likeminded lyricists. You can peruse the album below, then hit this link to satisfy all your other physical and digital needs.

Jam Baxter - Fetch the Poison (Pre-Order)

Jam Baxter - Fetch the Poison (Pre-Order)-Blah Records

We are pleased to kick off 2022 the right way, with news of the latest release from Jam Baxter. Following on from his official Blah debut last year, with the Sumgii-produced, Obscure Liqueurs, Baxter now returns with an album that sees him reuniting with the mighty Forest DLG - FKA Chemo - who was the twisted genius behind many of our protagonist's previous releases and who is at the helm for a lot of this latest venture.
Fetch the Poison was spawned in the midst of Baxter's Mexican lockdown experience, where he found himself on the side of sobriety after a state-wide alcohol ban, and decided to write an album. Don't let the lack of inebriation worry you though; all the hallmarks of his dark and dank writing style are still present and correct.
As well as Forest DLG's production contributions, there are also beats from Jack Danz, Wundrop, Dr Zygote and Lenkemz. This is all backed up by appearances from Nah Eeto, Black Josh, Jehst and Sammy B-Side, alongside features from Brazil’s NOG, Black Alien and Xamã.
The album is due for release at the end of February and is now available for pre-order on both vinyl and cassette, as well as pre-saves on your favourite digital streaming platforms. More information on all of that can be found here.
