Delusionists – Smash Bros. (Lost Letters Pt.5)

Smash Bros. Artwork

After keeping us waiting for just over 2 months, Delusionists prove that good things really do come to those who wait.

This is part 5 (Parts 1-4 HERE)of their intriguing ‘Lost Letters’ project in which they bless us intermittently with one of many tracks which fell by the wayside due to not quite fitting in with any projects in the pipeline. Too good to be discarded altogether, they’re being fed to us drip by drip to keep all you fiends from tweaking too hard.

‘Smash Bros’ is a beast of a beat courtesy of Slim Pickens and it features ‘Relly & Zweli’. Ben excels with some great lines like;

“Goin’ ape, no escape from the horror scenes, when they watching Beans get Illy – no coffee beans”

and, my personal favourite;

“I’ve gotta bop to the shops, I’ve only got a half a lager left – Ben Black, fresher than koala breath”


So stop reading, start listening – the track is currently only available to listen to via You Tube (see below) but no doubt it will be up for free download before you know it.

*Just a little side note – if you’re wondering where the voice of the lovely French lady at the start comes from, it’s from when Delusionists track ‘Serious’ was featured on a podcast along with other niceness which you can find HERE

Delusionists – Lost Girl (Lost Letters Pt.3)

Posted in Delusionists with tags , , , on October 24, 2011 by figmentuk

Part 3 of Delusionists Lost Letters series is a beautifully mellow departure from the previous two bangers – the Apatight produced ‘Dastardly Schemes’ and The Mr. Loop crafted ‘Elevator Music.’

‘Lost Girl’ is wonderfully sparse and ethereal, courtesy of dream like vocals and a nice phaser on the outro. Produced by Delusionists resident DJ/part time Beatmaker (when Ben isn’t on the boards) Slim Pickens, it’s a testament to the groups ability to hold an audience when instrumental gems like this one, weighing in at just over a minuite and a half – hold just as much gravitas as anything you’ll find on Prolusion Plus.

I suggest you listen HERE

Elevator Music is the second release in Delusionists new Lost Letters series, and it’s available to stream/download for free HERE.
 
You can also get involved with discovering the next Lost Letter by printing off this poster and posting it somewhere for all to see. Take a photo of wherever you post it and send it to lostletters@delusionists.co.uk and if it’s funny/provocative/beautiful they might just use your image as the cover art for the next release. Submissions need to reach by Saturday 22nd October and should be an exact square of at least 520×520 pixels (the bigger, the better) with the main text on the poster clearly visible.
 
Enjoy…

Delusionists – Dastardly Schemes (Lost Letters Pt.1)

Posted in Delusionists, UK HIP HOP with tags , , , on October 11, 2011 by figmentuk

Dastardly Schemes, produced by Apatight (Professor Green, Jehst, Micall Parknsun) is the first in a series of free singles to be released by Delusionists over the coming weeks. This series of tracks, called The Lost Letters, were recorded for various projects – some pre-date Prolusion Plus, some were created more recently – but all of them got “lost” somewhere along the line. They say none of these tracks will be appearing on the next album, but “we like them too much for them to stay lost forever, so we want to share them with you.”
So, grab yourself a free download of Dastardly Schemes now and they’ll have another new track for you very, very soon. When I know, you’ll know…
