With this release, I've teamed up with independent vocalist 'The Philosofist'. The result was dubstep, which further evolved into hip-hop after trying to make the drum loops fit. I've followed the techniques and atmospheres used by many classic hip-hop artists, while adding my own subtle touches - especially in the first track, where you can notice a dub-like beat.
This album took me two months to produce, working on-and-off for a total of 15 hours. It might not be the longest production time-frame, but it's had more effort put into it than any other release of mine.
I'd like to thank The Philosofist for the great vocal work. It's not chart-topping material, but it's better than anything T-Pain or 50 Cent could spit out in terms of how meaningful the lyrics are.
However, this time I've put it up with an extra track, remastered all the tracks, and took away the price tag. Yup, all of my music is free again!
