After four years and over 20 releases, High Focus Records has become the seminal UK rap label. As an independent label it has pushed the envelope with the variety of rap music it releases and has managed to gather a loyal following across Europe and beyond. With a roster of artists including founder Fliptrix, veteran Verb T, Ramson Badbones, Dirty Dike, Edwardward Scissortongue and the beautiful voice of Rag N Bone Man they are very much holding their own. Their previous three birthdays have been not only been great parties but also a showcase of some of the best talent the scene has to offer and it looks like tomorrow will set a new standard.
High Focus will be, for the first time, having their birthday bash at Brixton Electric; a much larger venue than on previous occasions and testament to the large support base the label has gathered. This is not an evening you will want to miss. Live on stage will be the full roster of artists (obviously not at the same time) as well as Jehst, Klashnekoff, Children Of The Damned, Kashmere and Buggsy. The only thing that has ever come close to such a line up were the UK Takeovers way back when in Nottingham that now live on in UK hip hop folklore; the older ones amongst us will remember those days fondly.
