Bangers & Mash being served up soon. In the meanwhile, enjoy this Sense One goodie off of Past, Present, Future featuring Emilio Lopez, with cuts from Sterby Rock and production by Kind Carnage of P.O.W. Camp. It’s Sense’s video debut, shot by the ever-reliable Vertygo.
Although this tape has been long-awaited, it’s finally here for your listening pleasure. Now That’s Truth Volume II — a sixty-plus-minute blend of Sparks and Name over a number of original productions, plus a handful of remixes with some of indie’s finest instrumentals. The project is brought to you by DJ Sterby Rock, and, if you’re familiar with the music he endorses, it should go without saying that this mix is fresh. The stream can be heard here:
And if sitting in front of SoundCloud ain’t your thing, CD copies can be obtained by contacting this guy: SterbyRock@gmail.com. Get them while they’re still available.
I haven’t been on TECB in almost three weeks — not because I don’t have an inbox chock full of great music to post, or by way of Verbal’s taste in hip-hop making me wish I was the cop tied to the chair in Reservoir Dogs, but due to the simple fact that life gets hectic sometimes. This past week in particular has been non-stop, unfortunately with the downs outweighing the ups. I’ll be sure to depress you more in the posts to come, but the point I’d like to make here is how some music is too good to sit in your email account.
Enter Matty Mischief. My dude reached out to me today about the next track off of Bigger in My Own Mind, his upcoming and highly anticipated solo album. If you haven’t heard of said album as of yet, kindly ask the person closest to horse-kick you in the nether region. Hopefully the genital pain you’re now experiencing will get you to pay closer attention to The Echo Chamber Blog and our coverage of Rhode Island hip-hop, as you’ve done missed a scorcher with Emilio Lopez and a cut that’s so fucking stupid, Corky Thatcher now feels like the latest leather-bound volume of Encyclopedia Britannica.
Anyway, the track he sent over — featuring Matty’s Now or Never rhyme-partner Meta P and DJ Sterbyrock of the locally based Dead Letter squad on the cuts — has a title fitting for both my return to TECB and the quality of music it represents: “Need That.”
A new video from the Dead Letter camp: Meta P hooks up with Passionate MC and Baltimore’s DJ Remedy for “The Art of Armageddon.” Passionate has always talked/rhymed about his Jedi ways, but in this video he finally proves to everyone he’s nice with the saber just as he is on the mic.
This track is off of Meta’s next project, The Dead Letter LP, and that score you hear in the background is the product of Wundah Ground’s own 8th. There is also a cameo by The Echo Chamber’s close compadre, Frow, a.k.a. MC Frow. He get’s sliced up and stuffed in a bag. Hope Meta got the Scotch Guard option on the Camry: blood is a biditch to get out.
You can grab an MP3 version of this track over at CD Baby then hit up DeadLetter.com and KillSwag.com for all your latest gear.
