Soundsci – Dig For Victory EP (2009)
2009 is a good year for rap for at least two reasons. The first one is the new P.U.T.S. LP and the second one is the superb EP from a duo called SoundSci.
SoundSci are former members of Dynamic Syncopation (known for a killer LP released by Ninja Tune) and Mass Influence. 7 tight tracks blending the best of British and US rap. Hot beats with some heavy samples, brilliant flow and precise cuts – nothing more and nothing less. The EP sounds like stuff that Breakin’
Bread fans will definitely enjoy. It also features a couple of guests, which I’ve not heard before. Also Herbaliser fans will like the tracks as Ollie Teeba is also featured on the record.
Pressed on red vinyl and hand numbered. I got 105 / 275. It’s a shame that Misty hadn’t told me earlier because the first 100 copies included a bonus CD packed with sounds for a remix contest.
SoundSci were so nice that the opening numbers is available for free on www.soundsci.com. You definitely need to check this because it’s off the hook! Dynamite!
For Beyond Lounge I chose a different track which suits it better a bit more of a couch surfing experience.
Keep a look out for an LP – hopefully we’ll live to see one. Let’s hope that a Polish record store distributes “Dig For Victory” soon. Such limited releases tend to disappear quickly…(Cuba, if you’re reading this than the last sentence is meant for you!).
Over and out,
