seattle rapper/producer grieves emerged in 2007 with his independently released album, irreversible. in the years that followed, he wholly devoted himself to touring, writing and recording, honing his craft and defining his sound. his 2011 rhymesayers debut, together/apart, was a career landmark and a testament to his growth in both, his writing and delivery, and this progression was re-affirmed by his follow-up, winter & the wolves, in 2014. now, after three years, grieves prepares to reveal further evolution with the release of his new full-length album, running wild.
on running wild, grieves teamed up with swedish producer chords. together, the two have produced a modernized sound that is lush and intoxicating, pairing punchy drums with thick layers of synths and warm bass lines, all accented by soulful keys, horns, or guitars. whether dark and moody, or upbeat and jazzy, grieves navigates and complements the soundscape, penning verses that range from vulnerable and confessional, to fun and carefree. grieves is most certainly breaking boundaries, truly running wild, all while remaining honest to himself.

comprised of two of the most verbose mcs in hip-hop today– aesop rock and rob sonic– hail mary mallon prepares to unleash their second full-length release, bestiary. individually, these two lyricists are well known for wordy expressions eliciting oft-despondent themes. together, however, they appear to push one another to the limits of humorously witty wordplay, while simultaneously crafting complex rhyme patterns. the very title of the album, bestiary, was inspired by the fact that they both went into beast mode, here. the picture vinyl lp includes a code for free download of the full album.

p.o.s. returns with never better, february 3rd on rhymesayers. it?s the follow-up to 2006?s critically acclaimed audition. most of p.o.s? new album was written in a moving car. on it, he raps at full-clip to ride rolling drums and revving distortion. there?s an urgency that he keeps in careful check, and then unleashes for spring-loaded verses that represent his best work. p.o.s built his reputation as an innovator, with an unlikely punk rock past and expressive, honest content. he re-earns the accolades with every release. his records capture his charisma-they?re driving and sincere, the dark moments counterbalanced by some giggling banter with the engineer. on never better, the new disc, he conjures get-away cars, racing chariots, the pursuit of sirens, and the occasional rueful nighttime drive.
p.o.s. himself made more than half of the beats on never better, and the production bears his unmistakable signature. the album enters a room like bombshell with a black eye-badass, noisy, impossible to ignore. feedback and relentless drum rolls are only occasionally tempered by sung choruses and clean, chiming guitar lines. some critics will be eager to categorize the album as a hybrid-some kind of crossover project. but it?s probably not. p.o.s is a rapper with range, he?s a real musician and an unstoppable performer. for him, genres are as they ever were: permeable.
der produzent und selbsternannte perfect beat writer jake one aus seattle tritt zum ersten mal selbst ins rampenlicht und pr?entiert uns sein debutalbum >white van music< auf rhymesayers. jake one dr?kte der us-amerikanischen rap und hiphop-szene in den letzten 10 jahren vielfach seinen stempel auf. unter anderem sa?er bei produktionen von de la soul, snoop dogg, tupac und 50 cent an den reglern. somit konnte jake one seinen sound erfolgreich von den underground in die billboard top 10 charts bringen. auch die kollaborateure auf >white van music< tragen prominente namen und lassen die grenzen zwischen underground und mainstream hip hop verwischen: busta rhymes, brother ali, freeway, m.o.p. und prodigy geben sich neben vielen bekannten namen ein stelldichein auf jakes debut. auf der single-auskoppelung >trap door< ist kein geringerer als mf doom zu h?en.
