Straight out 'a Gloucester, a crazy record label called Played Out have just dropped their debut LP by conscious Hip-Hop artists JPDL and Yogi Beats. Featuring thirteen tracks of stark lyricism and spoken word coupled with creamy and sleek grooves and a host of collaborations from the likes of DJ Slaazninjah, Griz-O, Grove, MC D and Reuben Lovett.

Hailing from Cheltenham, JPDL is an artist who's spent over ten years honing his craft over a variety of different platforms, subjects and topics, embalmed around conscious and societal Hip-Hop. His musical partner Yogi Beats also reps Cheltenham and matches the conscious tone with his sublime use of funky layered beats throughout the record. A formidable Hip-Hop pairing and for a first release, it’s an impressive feat, setting the standard for which Played Out Records are sure to follow as their discography is set to expand throughout the year. Catch them supporting Dr Syntax x DJ Fingerfood on 9th Feb and don’t forget to pre-order a vinyl copy of the LP HERE!
