“A Hitchhiker’s Guide To A Verse” by Loop Minded Individuals – Full Length Album Out Now!

Looking for something fresh to elevate your weekend listening??? Well, look no further… Loop Minded Individuals’ (ESH the Monolith and Intrikit) new album “A Hitchhiker’s Guide to a Verse” is just that and much much more! With such an epic lineup of tracks and features this is one project that’s just impossible to overlook and even better it’s available on a limited edition cassette tape via I Had an Accident Records right here:

“The idea of taking the listener through a journey is one that gets tossed around frequently by artists. But with “Loop Minded Individuals: A Hitchhikers Guide to A Verse,” ESH the Monolith and Intrikit look to take that concept one step further. 

ESH and Intrikit – producer/MCs representing Boston and Norwich, CT., respectively – spearhead the 10-track project, a throwback to gritty late-’90s rap compilations that aims to bring together some of the finest up-and-coming vocalists in independent music. Loosely inspired by the Douglas Adams’ novel its name pays homage to, the album invites an array of MCs and singers to hop on soundscapes, sharing their story with ESH and Intrikit and, in turn, the listener. 

“We used this album as an opportunity to work with some of the talented people we’ve met around the country. We wanted to have a wide range of voices, each bringing their unique story and perspective,” says ESH, whose previous projects include 2009’s “The ADDventures of an E.ccentric S.uper H.ero,” 2011’s “Invisible” (with producer Dox Ellis) and, most recently, “Nightworks,” a collaboration with AR Classic producer The Arcitype. 

Aside from ESH and Intrikit (whose own work includes the 2013 DIM release “Bright Ideas”), “Loop Minded Individuals” features vocals from Elucid, Moe Pope, Roc Doogie, Romen Rok, Has-Lo, Teddy Faley, F. Virtue, DeeBee, the Kreators, Seez Mics (Educated Consumers), Grey Sky Appeal and others. Renowned turntablists Emoh Betta and DJ Merf also make contributions. 

“We tried to construct a cohesive picture which a bunch of loose puzzle pieces,” ESH says. “We hope the listener enjoys the ride.” “

Just a note; there are only 36 of these cassettes left, so don’t sleep too long if you’d like to get your hands one one.

Style Force with DUKE

Originally posted on Arty Graffarti:

I think about this every time I see an absolute burner like this, where in the hell does this one start? And when does it finish? Duke is a writer who has been practising his craft for over two decades now, and with pieces like this, it shows. The highlights, colour palet, mystery shadows and all round delivery is truly on another level. Work this good makes you think that graffiti is a lot like music, it doesn’t matter if you can’t completely understand it, but you can always appreciate  it when it’s done so right.

Sage Francis’ “Copper Gone” – Album Review + “Grace” Official Music Video Out Now!

Hey peeps..

So, recently we had one of our friends and non-do hiphop affiliate to take a listen to the new Sage Francis album “Copper Gone” and share their thoughts… This is what they had to say:

“With a ‘DIY or Die’ approach the HipHop veteran delivers a compelling, captivating classic for 2014. The album deals with the artist’s signature outlook on social and contemporary issues in and out of the HipHop scene, validating his ‘silverback gorilla status’ through cunning multi-tiered wordplay and melancholic undertones. The proclamation is that Sage is here to stay, and even though he professes ‘both sides of my bed are the wrong ones and I am always waking up’ he continues to arouse the minds of his fans and followers”.

and what an amazing album it is!

Sage also recently dropped this assiduous official music video for the track “Grace” from the album; it really does the track justice!!
Check it out here:

If you haven’t already; Go go grab one of the incredibly slick PACKAGE DEALS (CD, vinyl, cassette, shirts, hoodies) right here: www.tinyurl.com/CopperGoneSFR
