The Mouse Outfit, Black Josh and Levelz served notice last year that any hip-hop head ignores what's going on in Manchester at their peril. Here's Manc-native Dubbul O (who you might recall from his ace 2016 LP with Pro P, 'As We Proceed') dropping a superb set of trax-on-wax for the first time, with production from Mankub throughout. It's Mankub's subtlety and grace that really elevate proceedings here — 'In The Mix', 'Do What You Can' and the totally nutzoid title track alive and animated with Looney-Tunes jagged magic, bass and beats locking together with insane cubist precision. Superb stuff, and keep an eye out for stuff from the affiliated Mothership Connection in 2018 too. The North keeps rising...
