“The biggest thrills still come from the unearthing of barely heard music from artists who might have slipped through history’s cracks. That is what the British label Chopped Herring Records specializes in…. “

It’s crazy that Herring has been rolling 20 years but has never repped a female artist. Sure, we’ve had lots of female guests; Bahamadia, Lil Kim, Amayss, Stahrr, Madame Star, Gypcees, Sistar Act among others,, but never the main artist on a release. Not that we’ve been looking out for female artists to make it happen. This project was just a another natural Herring release. It just happens to be the case that the act is female. A killer 4 track project produced by Mohamad Malek and featuring Napoleon Da Legend, The Valley of The Queens EP makes for a solid 7″ of Brooklyn flava for the heads. Peep it – you will not be disappointed.
FEB/MARCH CYCLE #2
Wow, another banging new album!! This time our good friend Trevor J aka Veks from Last Jazz Club & Apes of Graf teams up with Norwegian production crew Loop.Holes, to give us some beautiful jazz-flavoured hip hop on a seriously positive tip. Every track is a buttery biscuit. Loop.Holes absolutely smashed the production. Been chillin with this project since the summer, and now that it’s freezing cold outside, these summery jawns will warm your souls right up. Peep the snippets – if you dig the Last Jazz Clun material, you’re in for a treat!!
FEB/MARCH CYCLE #1
Extremely dope sophomore album from Arizona’s own MC Shinobi.

Darney and DJ Daredevil [R.I.P.] as well as guest features from Herring regulars MC Gels & Hahyeem. Underground hip hop at its finest!!! Peep the snippets HERE
