Had the privilege of listening to this really awesome album last night and man I’m really digging it… very fresh production and on point lyricism; I can highly recommend checking it out!
Introducing “THEHAZE” consisting of emcees Besatree and Kid Presentable!!! (CLDMKRS, Los Angeles, CA) and Haunted days and Witches Teat (Rennes, France) are a collective of artists making music on their own terms. Their self titled ep, (releasing 3/4/2014) is a paranoia laced lyrical opus, backed by a cinematic soundscape littered with ghostly pianos and synths. Walking a thin line between surreal and boombap, THEHAZE is underground noir for a new generation of hip hop heads.
“This album is their attempt to blend dense introspective prose over cinematic, almost noir beats. Dictated by ghostly pianos and synths that provide the perfect backdrop for the lyrically heavy, and intellectual flow, it steadily progresses: switching vantage points and topics seamlessly. Sharp yet fluid, it sets the bar higher than when they found it, and leaving a blueprint on how to diverge from the beaten path”.
