Inspired by jazz and soul infused hip hop, Brighton based MC, producer and Yogocop Records resident, Harvs Le Toad is definitely not one to sleep on.
Put the kettle on – Harvs & KLB ft. illiterate (Prod. M.KOZI)
One of the main reasons I’m drawn to Harvs is his flow, for some reason reminds me of early Braintax vibes but perhaps a little grittier. Coming from the Leanworks EP, released on Yogocop in 2016, Harvs and KLB made their imprint crafting quality bars back and forth over slick production. ‘Put the Kettle On’ is a personal favourite, with M.KOZI on the beat giving us a beautifully crafted, lazy head-nodder, featuring illiterate who, no surprise, kills it.
Snap your neck – Harvs & Vitamin G (Prod. Remulak)
‘Snap Your Neck’, does exactly what it says on the tin – hard not to with Vitamin G kicking things off – Harvs effortlessly comes in with the second verse, giving us a much welcomed taste of the less soppy side he’s is usually known for laying down. Bringing a playful flow on the quite frankly ridiculous beat from Remulak, Harvs defintiely makes his mark.
Rose Petals – ft. Kemastry (Prod. Harvs)
‘Rose Petals’ comes from the brand new EP by Harvs entitled Garlic Mayo vol. 1 – one of my main reasons not to sleep on him. This 9 track EP has no lyrics spat by him. Instead, it’s solely produced by Le Toad with features from; Kemastry, Bill Greene, Vitamin G and Louis Loan. Proving he is not short of ability when it comes to making music, ‘Rose Petals’ is the first release from this project. A beautiful, dreamy nod to the romantic style Harvs boasts, Kemastry vaunts a slick and unforced flow on this one complimenting the beat with perfect ease.
Harvs describes Garlic Mayo vol. 1 as the condiments on the table before your main course and teases us with talks of a solo album in the not too distant future – definitely hungry to hear more.
