Premiere: Tephra & Arkoze – Ascertain

Tephra & Arkoze land on Dispatch LTD with a brand new EP this month and we’ve got the exclusive on title track Ascertain. Featuring the vocals of the ever dependable MC Fokus, the track combines playful hip-hop lyricism with swung beats and some grin-inducing bassline grime for a tidy workout that keeps the energy high while avoiding the usual rolling 2-step patterns. Sick one! Hit up the Dispatch store to grab the Ascertain EP right now, with full release at all good digital outlets from Mar 24th.

As usual you can check out the mix via Soundcloud below or head to Mixcloud, Hearthis.at or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.

Tephra & Arkoze – New Blood / The Gunman [Nurtured Beatz]

Nurtured Beatz round off a great year with another impressive release, this time from Tephra & Arkoze.
