After nearly a year of work, Fire In The Basement by Context & Jimmy Flipshyt is now live! The EP weighs in at 8 tracks in total and features guest verses from BVA, P.Smurf, Sinks, Stateovmind, Mattrix and Dane One. Venturing back into boom bap territory - this release respects the old school whilst showing growth by both artists in lyricism and production.

"I quite enjoyed The Shadows, but Context and Jimmy Flipshyt have upped the ante with Fire in the Basement. They have found creative partners that push each other in just the right ways, and have come together in a strong and focused artistic statement that says a lot in just twenty five minutes. We don’t need to talk about potential any more. They’ve arrived." - Scratched Vinyl (US)

With exclusive streams on Wordplay (UK) and interviews on Hardcore Classic (AU) - the release is already attracting hype. The EP is now live through Bandcamp on Vinyl, CD and digital download, and is also available on iTunes, Amazon and other online stores.
