Trademark Blud is a rapper from the Midlands, UK who has been working hard and perfecting his craft for the last few years. Last year he dropped an underground mixtape ‘Tricks Of The Trade’ with UK Runnings, the UK’s longest running mixtape series. This brought him to attention of Platformz Music and Chicago producer Rediculus who immediately gave him a selection of beats to work on. Six months later and the outcome is this solid eight track free download EP entitled ‘Blud On The Brain’ which has no guest appearances and is entirely produced by Rediculus. Touching on various subjects and topics, this timeless piece of work is without a doubt Trademark Blud’s best work to date and it’s a release that is destined to put him on the global underground Hip-Hop map.
Trademark Blud is a talented wordsmith that is making big waves playing live all over the UK sharing stages with the likes of Skinnyman, Mystro, Micall Parknsun, as well as playing at this year’s Boom Bap Festival with acts such as Your Old Droog, The Four Owls, Jeru The Damaja, Earl Sweatshirt and many more. As a battle rapper he has featured on Don’t Flop and Spitroast Battles, as well as doing numerous freestyle performances for channels such as Fliplife TV, Titan TV, Big Fingz and many others. With a string of music videos planned to drop and a support slot on the Bronze Nazareth European Tour, things are about to get serious. Everyone’s got Blud On The Brain.

Thought Foundry is the newest offering from Platformz Records, the label founded by producer and tech CEO Rediculus. The label is associated with his mobile music app Platformz, which allows users to stream music from multiple streaming sites in one app.
The project titled “Ready For This” is four strong songs covering what lyricist Konflik sees as “things that motivate me to do better”. Questioning everything from the influence of religion on his life and the lives of those around him to ways to enjoy partying, this EP takes us on a musical journey of how Konflik and Rediculus see the world at large and the ways they cope with its effects on them.
From the opening drum licks of “Good Times” to the deep brooding guitars and organs on “Silver”, Rediculus provides the perfect backdrop for Konflik to lace his smooth flow over and ‘Flik doesn’t disappoint as he matches it with thought provoking lyrics and memorable hooks.
