The 7-track album is the journey through the young Captain’s mind going from different dreams, imagining space, and seeing “Visions of the Unknown”. This vivid album uses classical, funk, and soul to bring this story to life played out by synthesizers and many live instruments. Sit back listen and enjoy the journey through the Unknown…

AXEL-F-J.Rocc-MED-The-Set

NEW MUSIC: J. Rocc & MED are AXEL F. – “THEME MUSIC”

Word by Mike Styles

axel-f-j-rocc-medd

After the buzzing Sofa Set Ep dropped last year, we were super stoked to learn of a full length by Axel F., not quite the synthy Beverly Hills Cop theme.  Rather a collaboration joint from, J. Rocc (Beat Junkies) behind the boards and MED up front on the mic.  Theme Music, released earlier this week on Bang Ya Head, is another chapter in hip hop’s street gospel, a modern blaxploitation flick on wax.  MED has been a recognized hit man with classic verses on some of your favorite Stones Throw related joints (cue up Madvillainy, Shades of Blue, “Blind Man (Cut Chemist Remix)”, Push Comes to Shove)…J.Rocc, is well, arguably the greatest dj, party rocker, sample puller on the planet and this is his first solo produced hip hop album.  The combo here is a no brainer and the album reflects exactly as it should.

From the jump you can already feel your leg sweat sticking to the sofa plastic on “Searchin’.”  “The Set” is what hooked us from the start, the stand out 808 boom bap track from the Sofa Set ep and one of MED finest moments.

“Omega ft. Blu” is the latest single dropped from the duo, where Blu and MED exchange punchy hood versus over a monster of a beat by ‘The Funky President’.

How about them bells?  We won’t spill all the beans but you’re going to get the full spectrum here.  MED discusses the nature of economics (“Sofa Coins”).

197669_414811018557932_730889289_nThere’s a love joint featuring our girl Jimetta Rose (“SCWF”), an awesome ode to Mary Jane with fellow Stones Throw artist Oh No (“All Day”) and what underground West Coast album is complete without an appearance by Phil the Agony & Krondon (“Superman”)?  Oh can’t forget about the international and soul bonus beats provided by J. Rocc.  All in all a great set of music for the streets, dropped with perfect timing.  Support the independent effort and much respect to J. Rocc & MED for this one.

CA….ALLL DAAAAY!

Last month we announced our first official album release by Northside Chicago producer Sev Seveer with an exclusive promo.  Since his feature on our third podcast, Seveer has quickly become one of our favorite up and coming producers of today.  Constant Elevation:  Odessa Star is a cohesive 30-minute song cycle on one track, it is his first official release since 2008 and we our honored to share it with you!

Words By Sev Seveer:

Constant Elevation: Odessa Star is the soundtrack to my dementia-riddled late-grandmother’s journey through cosmic space at age 91.  It is the sonic narration of my experience caring for a person who has lost their mind.  A juxtaposition of the two circumstances that I find most terrifying- being lost in space with no control, compared to being an otherwise sober-minded person gradually witnessing the loss of their mental capacity– as I have come to imagine that the two circumstances may be very similar.

About 70% of the final product was recorded improvisational in two single-take sessions.  Ultimately I strung those sessions together along with individual additions and chose to go with a 29-minute recording as opposed to individual tracks— to further simulate a lack of control in a lost-in-space/lost-in-mind circumstance.  Thus, this release is truly for advanced listeners only.  It is not straight beats all the way through, in fact there are really only about 5 or 6 beats here.  The recording is more of a journey that explodes into beat music on occasion.

With the various parts I had the word “movement” more in mind:  there are 8 “movements” in CEOS, all of which are the main themes of the perception of Odessa’s experience.  The movements are: Confidence, Dementia/The Humbling, The Spiral/Reduction, Farewell, The Journey, Stress/Chaos, Finding Humor in Pain, and Clarity.

On the last sequence. Clarity, I had the opportunity to record the duet with megiapa, a Chicago-based Ohio born artist who is truly talented vocally and on production as well.  Look out for her! I’d like to also credit John Robinson (aka lil sci) for the lyric that provided the title and concept for this release. the lyric “Constant Elevation through the soundwaves and radio stations” is from “U.S.A” by Scienz of Life.
