SUBSTANTIAL & THE OTHER GUYS “THE PAST…” EP

NOW AVAILABLE!

PLUS SUBSTANTIAL’S UNRELEASED DEMO TAPE FROM ’99
EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE WITH BANDCAMP PURCHASE


The Past… is the first of three EPs leading up to the fourth studio album from prolific, Indie MC, Substantial. This time around the veteran wordsmith has partnered with HiPNOTT Records producer duo and fellow Maryland natives, The Other Guys for his latest release. Substantial’s musical past, pre-Hyde Out Productions, included many collaborations with Isaiah of TOG, which makes their project’s title quite fitting. The Past… features Von Pea of Tanya Morgan, Substantial’s protegé, See King, cuts from DJ Jav and plenty of that soulful boom bap The Other Guys have been known to provide. Lyrically, Substantial is as sharp as ever and covers subjects such as the dying art of MCing, dreams limited by stereotypes, and the exploitation of his former producer, Nujabes.

Substantial’s full length album The Past Is Always Present In The Future drops fourth quarter 2015. Until then, enjoy this appetizer and look forward to more flavorful Hip Hop music to feed your soul.

Staying true to The Past… theme, those who purchase the album on Bandcamp will receive a bonus download of Substantial’s 1999 demo tape entitled Before Sunrise: Pre-Hyde Out Demo ’99.  This 5 song bonus track includes songs recorded which would give Substantial the opportunity to work with legendary producer Nujabes. Substantial provides commentary on each track as well. Details below.

JSOUL “GET ON DOWN” FEATURING SUBSTANTIAL
OFF THE UPCOMING ALBUM ‘THE PURPLE SYMPHONY’ OUT 04/28/15
AVAILABLE NOW FOR PRE-ORDER

Soul samples and hard drums. Crispy snares and vinyl pops. All the DNA involved in making a cold boom bap album. But if music is a language, then what JSOUL is saying speaks volumes. As JSOUL explains, “Each Track I make represents what I love and want to hear inside the culture I was raised in. It expresses the sentiments I believe in without having to say a word.” While the core of The Purple Symphony lies in the head nod, the underlying message is “let’s make something and say something real.” From beginning to end, the message is clear; all you gotta do is listen.

Coming from Baltimore the harsh realities mixed with the club culture and strong hip hop scene makes it easy to translate. Working with wordsmiths like Substantial, Greenspan, Mathematics, Eze Jackson & Sean Armstrong adds to the depth of the album’s message.

“As a visual artist I’ve always seen colors and shapes when listening to music. That’s the reason I called it The Purple Symphony. Different Colors have an effect on our psychological imprints. When I made the album I saw the color purple; which is a strong color, but can be used in many different ways to convey many different things.”- JSOUL

The Purple Symphony is available now for pre-order on iTunes, Bandcamp, UGHH, and Fat Beats. Pre-order the album on Bandcamp and receive the first single “Get On Down” featuring Substantial immediately for free download!

Listen to the new single now on SOUNDCLOUD or BANDCAMP.

Coming off a successful run with The Regiment by providing the backdrop to S.O.U.L. (Sound of Us Living), producer Sinitus Tempo makes his solo HiPNOTT debut with his new album EGOCORTEX. Mostly instrumental, the album contains a few features from Valentina CX, Sir E.U, and Brian To Earth.

“The cerebral cortex plays a key role in memory, attention, perceptual awareness, thought, language, and consciousness. Often, people are so controlled by their own egos that they can’t even enjoy anything anyone else creates because they are too concerned with me myself and I. EGOCORTEX breaks down that mental state, putting them in a sense of tranquility.” - Sinitus Tempo

EGOCORTEX will be available for download Tuesday, March 31 at https://hipnottrecords.bandcamp.com/a…

Physical CD can be purchased at http://www.undergroundhiphop.com/sini…
Album also available on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ego…

Back when I was still shopping my demo to major labels, a Japanese guy contacted me thru my friend Sphere and things were never the same. If you’re interested in hearing the demo that made Nujabes sign me, pick up my new EP “The Past”. The full demo is available with commentary as a bonus track exclusively on Bandcamp: http://ift.tt/1EmC6zQ
