“The Allergies are neck deep in the world of scratchy samples…This is truly funk and soul for the 21st century!” – Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music.
Since forming in 2012 The Allergies have made a name for themselves with their take on sample-led beats and breaks.
Over the course of two funk-fuelled albums on Jalapeno Records the dynamic duo of DJ Moneyshot & Rackabeat have stacked up accolades and topped charts along the way.
Their last album, Push On, was a melting pot of vintage licks and modern production. It featured heavily on many end of year roundups when it dropped in 2017, and took the Album of the Year gong on BBC 6 Music, thanks to Craig Charles’ constant championing.
On record their infectious fusion of hip-hop and rare grooves has won them fans worldwide. And live they recreate that old block party madness on the turntables, cutting up wax like no others with their party-starting DJ sets. From ram jam stages at Glastonbury festival to rocking the legendary Space in Ibiza, they have one mission – to rock the spot.
The Allergies are fast becoming ones to watch, and with a new album release, ‘Steal The Show’, this year, these Bristol-based B-boys are just getting started.
Chrome is back with his new album ‘Dopamine Hit’ coming out this Autumn! Not only is he one of B-Line’s most respected artists; but is widely regarded as one of the most important HipHop acts in the UK. From his days with DefTex to his perfect partnership with Illinspired, Chrome always delivers with his trademark intricate flow and ceaseless energy. Right from the beginning of his career, it was apparent he was destined for great things having secured a deal with Virgin Records, before embarking on a journey with Deftex. This voyage would see him record for many labels including Son Records and collaborate with a broad spectrum of artists such as Ty and Kashmere.
For this project, Chrome has teamed up with man-of-the-moment (and Ugly Duckling rapper) Andy Cooper, ‘Shockwave’ pulses with one of the dirtiest baselines you will hear this year. With critical acclaim from industry favourites including The Allergies, DJ Format and Mr Thing, brace yourself, as this release is certain to send seismographs into over-load.”
