PORTRAITS (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 16.07.18
no one confronts the abyss better than chris orrick. the michigan ex-factory worker formerly known as red pill has spent the last half-decade documenting industrial decay, familial pain, and struggles with addiction better than almost anyone inhabiting this poisoned soil. it’s somewhere between charles bukowski and michael moore, or maybe atmosphere if he couldn’t ignore the arsenic in the air. as orrick tells it, “portraits,” his latest album for mello music group is a return to form.

limited pressing on audiophlie 180 gram double vinyl.
when diamond district dropped in the ruff on mello music group in 2009, the gritty drums and grimy raps combined as elementally as hydrogen and oxygen. the d.c. voltron of oddisee, yu, and x.o. dusted off and revitalized a sound once consigned to the catacombs. hailed as an instance classic, its impact reverberated throughout the underground and mainstream. the washington d.c. city paper called it the citys best album in many years. during an era when lyricism was deemed too intellectual and samples too dated, diamond district overturned conventional logic. they preserved the raw and made it righteous. a half-decade later, the holy trinity has returned with march on washington. the truths remain timeless. wisdom over rhythm. slang turned into testament.

DARK COMEDY (COLOURED LP)
coloured 12" Vinyl lp US 26.09.14
limited edition vinyl - cyan & yellow haze.
one of las smartest young voices says the la times…which the artist suspects, may just be a covert way of saying la is dumb. “open” mike eagle wouldnt terribly mind, being born and raised in chicago where the painful winters and his uppity grandparents kept him inside as a youth. he spent his formative years watching alternative music happen on mtv and hoping to one day be able to audition for the native tongues. as a young adult after graduating with a degree in psychology, he did the next best thing and moved to los angeles, joining the project blowed collective where he made music and toured with busdriver, aceyalone, abstract, nocando, and more. he has also gained notoriety in the world of comedy by being invited by professional funny people (paul f. tompkins, hannibal buress, matt besser/ucb) to rap at their shows. he would like to be raps kurt vonnegut but recognizes that he would first have to create something as iconic as the four-stroke illustration of an anus. he practices by releasing rap albums that delight, entertain, and confuse.

RETURN OF THE GASFACE (LP)
12" Vinyl lp US 01.08.14
this is for those with hard heads, black lungs, and scarred hearts. it is for the dreamers who construct darts on loose-leaf and those revolting against corporate life and casual fridays. it is castles return of the gasface, released on mello music group, remixed by has-lo with a new track and revamped verses. the new record tilts at a different angle, but the beats still bludgeon without sacrificing soul. the raps are rugged yet introspective. the north carolina natives voice is grizzled and shot through with the fatigue that comes from late nights, cigarettes and coffee. has-los beats coax a deeper melancholy out of castles hymns.

a gritty 90s style album for those who grew up on illmatic, midnight marauders, only built for cuban links, moment of truth, and ready to die. behind the scale shows the other side of what some are glamorizing about street life and drug trade. this is unfiltered, real shit on tape. some of the stories are inensly personal and sean second-guessed including them, but if it aint raw it aint real. behind the scale is about change, transition and growing up.

THE ICEBERG (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 07.12.17
the prolific mc, producer and musician oddisee’s new album ‘the iceberg’ is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. his third release in just 12 months, ‘the iceberg’ is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, go-go, gospel, thick r&b and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement.
lead single “things” acts as a mission statement for the album, a deep dance groove with lightning-quick lyrics about “things” he’s going through. says oddisee, “we all go through the trials & tribulations of life. why is it we feel the need to individualize our shared experiences? if only we could see our concerns as others do, maybe they wouldn’t be so serious.”

THE EASY TRUTH (RED & WHITE VINYL LP + MP3)
coloured 12" Vinyl lp UK 15.11.16
pressing on red & white splattered vinyl, comes with download code included.
after years of mutual respect, circling each other in collaborations, tours, style and respect, two titans of their craft have finally collided in apollo brown & skyzoo’s “the easy truth.” the album is everything you’ve dreamt it would be: breakneck instrumentals and syllables crafted to make your head spin. the marriage between detroit instrumentals and nyc wordplay has never been more cohesive. themes range from police brutality to ny ambitions, skyzoo shows you the world the way he sees it.
recorded and produced in detroit, “the easy truth,” is the perfect distillation of hiphop influences. every moment on the album is a loaded question, a perspective positing a notion of truth, the convergence of grit and symphony.
joining the artists on the record are joell ortiz, westside gunn, stalley, conway and patty crash, a reciprocal band of guests that only add depth and richness to the duo’s chemistry. coming september 30th, “the easy truth,” is true to its titular description: honest, fluid, and organic.

deluxe edition as colored vinyl with bonus 7inch! this album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. every song was written in an outside environment, so that i could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. all too often in hip hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. people hear what they see is my attempt to liberate the mc from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired american greed, watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired maybes. by having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs.
