In July 2011 Marz (of Brighton Hip Hop collective Scribe Tribe) dropped his debut LP – “Sax, Drugs & on the Dole”. It’s a dope Boombap Brighton Hip Hop LP and features our very own Bill Daggs on the track “Taught You To Kiss”. The LP is free to download from Zram Records bandcamp page, so don’t sleep.
It’s been a while since we left you, we’re sorry we left you…
In case you’re not aware O:ZN IS OUT NOW and we have finally emerged from our underground lair. A lot has happened in the last year, so please bare with us as we bring you up to speed…
If you’re curious as to exactly what happened during our time in the hideout, you should check:
On 11.09.11, we released this video.
In case you haven’t already heard, we have decided to give away our 2007 debut album ‘… A Prelude’ absolutely free!!! Not a penny, nor a sausage not even a thank you is required (though thank you’s are always welcome!). However, if you’re one of those good souls (/nutters) who still prefer to pay for your music, the album is available from iTunes and I think there may even still be some original CD copies (collectors item don’t you know?) on sites like Suspect Packages. Or just follow the link below to get it for free!!!!
Still need some convincing? Don’t just take our word for it, see what the press thought:
“On this pin-sharp debut album, their hard work is self-evident. Stepping from a refreshingly different angle”
“this crew are destined for greatness.”
“DefDFires are evidence of the dangers of generalisation…with lyrical content that knock the spots off many other rappers with their intelligence, humour and originality and beats to match.”
-HAM & HIGH
“DefDFires tell their street stories as storybook fables, over bustling boom-bap brushed with folk and psychedelic caginess… the intensity of the North London crew’s murkier moments will impress.”
-ONE WEEK TO LIVE
“Some welcome imagination… Check for DefDFires if cinematic sounds and huge production values tickle your fancy.
“bringing some refreshing drama and lyrical content to the game.”
“wasn’t really feeling it I’m Afraid”
-GUNS AND AMMO
Here’s an old remix of our not-exactly-on ‘A Prelude’ track ‘Stop The Clock’, chopped and twisted courtesy Manic. It was done ages ago, before the album I think, but we only heard it a couple of years back. Hope you enjoy.
For all the audiophiles out there, there’s the original too… this full version was also not included on “A Prelude”!!
Merry Christmas Bitches,
We saw snow, so it must be Christmas. In light of this revelation we want to give you more free music, more memories to revisit, our 2002 Christmas number 1 classic, ‘Christmas time is buzzing in my skull’. Enjoy!

In keeping with the festive spirit, we give you “Engage Virus” – An EXCLUSIVE Tales From The Cabin download (…not an S.T.D!!). “Engage Virus” isn’t going to feature on “O:ZN”, this is a track we made specially for you, for joining us at our new blog.
…and if you’re lucky, next week we might give you an “O:ZN” preview – but only if you’re good, we’re making a list and checking it twice!!
Welcome to our new website, and where better to start than the beginning. Our first ever release was the Cabin Fever Mixtape (cassette), it’s ruff and raw and here for free in all it’s glory.
