Duke01 - Steroid stereo

“Steroid Stereo(Orange Edition)” – New Album from Duke01 – Out Now!

Uk emcee Duke01 just dropped his brand new album on Steroid Stereo(Orange Edition) out now on Uncommon Records!!
You can grab yourself a copy here:

“Nottingham, U.K. and Staten Island, N.Y. have never felt so close. Separated by the Atlantic Ocean but re-united by a common language, the two have created Steroid Stereo (Orange Edition), the latest experimental, gritty, head-nodding offering from Uncommon Records. With lyrics by Duke01 and production by Uncommon Nasa, Steroid Stereo (Orange Edition) is the epitome of what listeners have come to expect from an Uncommon Records release—raw, complex beats and insightful, incisive lyrical flows. This album will remind you of the way hip hop felt 20 years ago while sounding like hip hop will 20 years in the future. Duke01’s no-nonsense, eardrum-thumping flows are accented by some of the fiercest cuts you will ever hear. Furious P, one of the UK’s most accomplished turntablists, blesses the tracks with scratches that would make Q-Bert proud. The overall sound of Steroid Stereo (Orange Edition) is an in-your-face, auditory assault by the special forces of Uncommon Nasa’s Orange Army. And you should expect nothing less from Uncommon Records. Steroid Stereo (Orange Edition) is the first album since Uncommon Records issued a decree that all of its future releases will be produced by Uncommon Nasa (he also mixed and mastered this album). Additionally, the release includes both the full tracks and instrumentals—something Uncommon Records will be doing on all future releases. The production feel is signature Uncommon Nasa, starting with “Killed Your Radio” which smacks you across the head with a banging, crisp, layered sound. On “The Pursuit of Cow Meat,” Uncommon Nasa flips a proto-punk beat and Duke01 drives the track with punishing lyrics. “Ellington Binary” has an apocalyptic feel, and Duke01 is definitely gonna get his before it all ends. And if you’re into lyricists, the posse cut is on another level—Duke01 is joined by Dwyzak, Masai Bey, Passive 65ive, Atari Blitzkrieg and Uncommon Nasa for a seven-minute opus that demonstrates for all what can really only be called the Uncommon Sound”.

About dohiphop101

“do_hiphop” is NOT a label. It’s hip hop in itself promoting whom we feel are the most influential artists of our time from all over the world who deserve to be heard by the masses. Founded in June 2010, “do hiphop” is a website creating awareness of causes created through forces beyond our control and willing the true hip hop listener and artist to believe that they are able to be the major contributing factor in changing people’s mind-sets and lifestyles for the better, not only with what they put out but also with whom they affect, collaborate with and change. “Ultimately it’s about what we put in”, says ThiNXx(a representative of do hiphop). “So many musicians out there get so wrapped up in their own world and how they’re going to make it that they forget about who’s listening and how much can be accomplished just through being conscious and creating awareness of something that whether they like it or not… Actually affects them… Things like poverty, disease & oppression affect us all, no matter how socially elite we think we are and it is our responsibility as human beings to do all we can to invoke change which we CAN do through our music”. Change starts the minute you invoke it! We choose to see beyond the hype… home is where the heart is. Join our movement;
