We’re pretty chuffed about this in all honesty.
Not only are a duo of young rappers that we rate incredibly highly putting out new music, but we get to welcome you to Offie Mag to listen to it first.
West Yorkshire’s The Northaze is made up of Kosi Tides and Swish, a pair of inter-genre skipping artists who, despite their age, have got a healthy discography already. Check the futuristic Sabre Series, the spacey Lunar Duplex, the tranquil Mellow Thrills or the prelude to this project, Pulp Diction 2.
They’ve got a morning, afternoon and evening’s worth of Soundcloud binging which will pop up with frequent collaborators like Sheffield’s Toshiro Steel and fellow Leeds’ rapper, Jack Jetson. Both feature on this new ode to everyone’s cult classic favourite film, along with Blah sweg lawd Lee Scott and Jack Danz. The former brings some of that industrial-like production to Pulp Diction 3, but shows his range in providing beats that are both darn right filthy (Goodies in the Boot) and clean, too (like Gourmet Shit with Blacxy Reign).
Look out for Blacxy, too, as this project showcases some of the most exciting rap talents from up North. The Leeds tag-team prove (not for the first time) that cold hip-hop exists up and down the country and very few have carved such an original sound on each of their releases as The NorthaZe have. This one is dressed with samples from Pulp Fiction that weave the EP together and the full release dops alongside the visuals where Kosi and Swish play the role of Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield.
Released on the formidable Blah Records, this one is available to stream in all the usual places. Go get it and put it in your ears.
