Listening to this EP was my first time ever listening to Alaska, and as far as introductions go this is one smooth joint.
Well at least I thought it was my first time until I heard his voice, it sounded so familiar and after a bit of thinking and trying to not think, it clicked he was one of the members from Atoms Family (Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh).
From start to finish the beats take you on melodic trip that is accompanied with thought provoking flows and I can’t help but bop my head up and down the whole way through. It feels to me that as I listen I’m almost transported through different facets or departments of indie hip hop styles. Musically the beats are upbeat while a serious undertone is carried through by Alaska and all the feature’s lyrics.
This album features the likes of Zilla Rocca on “Return Of The Angst”, Curly Castro on ” Taking a Day”, Elsphinx on “Killers” and Randon Bowerman on “The End”. All in all, these artists have made one dope EP. I give this EP a rating of 3.5/5 Punchlines (Punchlines being my rating scale).
My favourite track is the last track, “The End”, this was the perfect way to round off a solid EP, and left my mouth watering for just a lil but more… But alas, Alaska, I look forward to your next release! I encourage all indie heads to download this and give it a listen.

Used and abused by the best in the biz like DJ Craze, DJ Klever, Sage Francis, QBert and Mix Master Mike. Who BTW used Unearthed 2 with the Beastie Boys on ‘Three MC’s and one DJ’ just sayin.. so y’know, if its good enough for them…you do the math. It’s the best of my breaks, beats and scratch sentences that have been out of print for 15 years.. It’s not just for DJ battles, it’s a kickass production tool. ~ Mr. Dibbs
