Characterised by wise words, thought-provoking concepts, greezy style and a strong underlying message of both peace and passion for music, Fliptrix has very sharply defined who he is and what he stands for over the last twelve years.
This duality and versatility is one of the reasons Fliptrix is a unique artist and is also why he has such a loyal fanbase. In conclusion, this album is absolutely fantastic.
If I had to think of a criticism, I would say that Fliptrix and High Focus in general have positioned themselves to be ambassadors of the UK scene, and as such could collaborate wider within the scene with things like features and guest production. It was worth it. Not Only will both Fliptrix and Illinformed be present performing a special album launch set, but legends such as Task Force will be in the building performing their first show together in London for over a decade, The Four Owls will also be swooping in as will Dabbla and new signings Strange U.
That's got a bit of influence from grime I suppose; how they rhyme the same word with the same word sometimes, stuff like just works'. I've always listened to it and rated it. I see it as rapping too, it's guys spitting bars on beats, and I think it's doing only positive things for the rap scene in this country in general. Everyone in our country accepts people rapping over beats from this country, and people all around the world are rating it, whereas before people used to say that only Americans can do it, but that whole thing has fully changed.
When I was a kid who their favourite rappers are they'd all be American, but now if you asked a kid these days who their favourite rappers are the vast majority would probably be English, which is kind of sick. I think it's changing and is a positive thing for UK hip-hop, and I think the lines are kind of starting to blur and merge a bit anyway, I think it's just going to help our scene as well'.
Having seen Big Flipper live a number of times, and having witnessed him kill some grime flows, I wonder if a full BPM LP is something we could ever expect. There's a few s on there, but they are kind of sample based ones, it's not necessarily grime it's just a different tempo.
You'll definitely hear me spitting on things but I don't know if it'd be a whole project. You never know though'. The content in Fliptrix's uptempo cuts sets him apart from most of his grime counterparts, and it's this reliance and concentration on an actual message that would make such a project so interesting. When I write tracks I do always try to make sure the content is there, because that is sometimes lacking for sure'. With the High Focus machine going from strength to strength, is set to be a huge year for the label.
I wonder if he's got his eye on any upcoming artists at the moment. I'm pretty happy with how the roster is at the moment; we've just signed Strange U who I think are ridiculously sick, and obviously Dabbla's album, so we're concentrating on the people we've got at the moment.
I've always got my eye open for new talent, but yeah'. Kashmere of Strange U has been putting the work in for years, and Dabbla has a huge reputation for his extensive work with LDZ, and it's great to see High Focus becoming a home for these veterans of the UK hip-hop scene. With Kashmere, he's one of my favourite rappers of all the time.
He's so sick, and I've known him a long time, and we've done lots of tunes together, so I've always wanted to put out a project of his. They came to me with the Strange U project to see if I'd be interested; I heard the project and obviously it was ridiculously sick, that's why I signed them.
I see the label as a brain, everyone's different with different elements to them, there's nobody that sounds like Strange U so there's a place for them. I wouldn't sign someone that I thought was similar or doing the same thing as someone else; everyone has to be original and different. The artists all work together, but they're all individual parts of a whole collective.Nov 25, · View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the CD release of Patterns Of Escapism on Discogs.
