Hosting the night is Kosyne (Louis Den) and we've got some special guests and the Funkbox residents Roy Roast Beef and Richie Reissue.

Crate003 Soundsci Dig For Victory EP

Crate Escape Proudly Presents...
Soundsci Dig For Victory EP
Artist: Soundsci
Release: Dig For Victory EP
Label: Crate Escape Records
Release Date: 20-07-2009

Rising from the ashes and Digging For Victory.

Soundsci is the brainchild of Jonny Cuba (One half of now disbanded Dynamic Syncopation) and Audessey (Founding member of Mass Influence) after collaborating previously on numerous occasions for Ninja Tune (Ground Zero, Dedicated, Systematic and 2 Tha Left), they kept in touch and continued making music together. As more tracks were recorded and friends Ollie Teeba (Herbaliser), U-George, and Therapy got brought into the mix it made sense to make an ep rather than single and the "Dig For Victory EP" was born. As a bonus track we are honoured to include an older track produced by Audessey featuring Jax from Binkis who unfortunately passed away last year and Reality. Using their b-boy ethics while not getting caught up in the past it thumps hard and reminds you why you love hip-hop.

The EP is
limited to 275 hand numbered red vinyl ep’s and 10 test pressings on black vinyl with individual artwork never to be repressed. The first 100 standard copies come with a CD of all the tracks and bonus folder with instrumentals, acapellas and remix competition.

Side A

1. Intro / Remedy

2. Show and Prove
3. The Question feat. U-George

Side B

The Illness
Lost and Found
3. Knock, Knock feat Therapy the Medicine Man

4. Think feat Jax & Reality

Cuts by Ollie Teeba, Jonny Cuba and Cro
Mixed by No Sleep Nigel

Mastered by Simon @ The Exchange

Some Quotes...

DJ Food (Ninja Tune)
"'Remedy' is f*cking banging, the best good time hip hop I've heard in ages, 'Show & Prove' and the 'Illness' ain't far behind, Short and sweet tracks, tight rhymes, beats and cuts - if only mainstream Hip Hop hadn't foresaken the funk for R&B and virtual synths"

DJ Woody (ITF & Vestax World DJ Champion) "You just have to take a look at the credentials of the guys behind this project to realise its gonna be a killer. Dope true school hip hop for those that like it how it should be, extra fonky! Top notch."

Poor Pocket Muzik "The Soundsci Ep Fresh Rhymes & Dope beats = A breath a fresh air when Hip Hop needs it the most"

Ed Catto (Freestyle Records) "Soundsci's Dig For Victory EP is proof that talented heads should never stop making the music they love. Lush compositions provide ample opportunity for lyrical calisthenics -- this shit is vibin'. Don't put a tag on that toe yet."

Finale is that Guy

I've got alot of posts to catch up on, missed the radio Monday and the next label release is nearly ready but thats a post on it's own so heres some video's from one of Detroits finest, Finale. I first heard about him from his collaboration with S-Type (Soul For Your Stereo) and then Ghost on the Pay Off EP (Alien Invasion) and I was instantly impressed, since then he's gone fromstrength to strength so peep the vids, play the game and buy the album!

The albums out now, you can cop it here - FINALE - A PROMISE AND A PIPE DREAM

I'm still hoping they will press wax!

I your bored in work don't front on this, hours of fun!
