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.

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."
