Offie Mag’s Music of the Month: January

We kick off a brand new series here with Offie Mag Radio, as we take over Platform B for a late show once per month.

In these shows, we’ll be playing and discussing all our favourite music released that month and bringing in guests responsible for new music, too. For January, we are joined by Old Paradice (Morriarchi & Confucius MC) who have just released their debut project together, The Last Resort EP.

Our number one Pick of the Month comes from our guests, Old Paradice, who give you six tracks of their ‘meeting of the minds.’

With Morri’s signature beats taking a more soulful turn and Confucius MC providing some of that genuine, colourful lyricism that’s he’s so revered for, this EP marks the beginning of something special from these South London-based artists who also happen to both love Greggs.

We don’t need to say much about this one, just check our interview with Harvs le Toad, himself. Shouts to Yogocop Records each and every time.

Kokoroko - Uman.png

The latest classic to some out of the so-called ‘London Jazz’ scene, Kokoroko are an all London, all super-talented collective, who begin 2019 how they ended 2018… darn right beautifully.

We opened the show with this one, have another listen to it here.

Kish - Vanity.png

Kish was a regular feature on our Music of the Month articles last year, even making our 2018 Review, too, with his amazing EP, I Feel Insane Sometimes.

He’s definitely sat on some serious heat for 2019, too, and this latest tune and video from the 237 resident suggests it will be an exciting year for this underground collective.

Lord Apex SSv2.png

What can you say about Apex that hasn’t already been said ISSUE TWO? Our cover star has the aura of a legend despite his age, with a huge catalogue of projects.

Smoke Sessions Volume 2 is his latest body of work, out there as a free download. The first single to be released off of it and the feeling of an instant classic from The Sensei.

This is another Brickcellphone find through the both beautiful and horrible platform that is Instagram.

‘It just proper sounds nice, innit,’ says the DJ about this melancholic release from an artist we’re looking forward to hearing more from.

Reklews.pngThis veteran producer is back with his latest instrumental tape.

Including beats from tracks you’ll recognise from Blah’s finest and some that will feel new, Reklews always delivers.

Tariq Disu.png

This release is so fresh it had only just come out by the time we broadcasted the radio show.

Tariq Disu has been a strong feature on the work several London creatives over the past few years and now, he gives us a much-awaited and to be heavily celebrated debut album. Loads of music, all of it great, get to know this.


Initially released in October, this song is as beautiful and challenging as the artwork.

At least two great artists come together on this track, which Brickcellphone couldn’t help but include in our top music to start the new year with. Osquello’s new EP, Good Morning Simulation, can be found here and it’s well worth your ears.

Big Nate Play Fair.png

This one is produced by Rubii and is another banger to come from 237.

Check out the football-friendly promo for this one, too, with Big Nate whipping in several football lyrics for your head top. Back of the fackin’ net mate oi oi.

And finally…
