TUNES FROM THE CRYPT
What's Spectre been up to? Was 2004's Psychic Wars
really The End? Has the Ill Saint been vanquished to obscurity for good?
FUCK what ya heard! In fact, the Overlord of the Underground is coming
back ILLA than ever with not one, but TWO!!! new albums for 2006. Not
only that, but in between his busy recording schedule, he found time to
dip into the vaults (or The Crypt as he likes to call it) and do a little
spring cleaning. The result is Tunes From The Crypt, a collection
of savage beats for the sophisticated listener featuring old and new bangers,
illicit grooves, and the most exclusive joints from his extensive catalog,
chopped-up and mixed to perfection.
It's been a long time since the Ill Saint released his last mix tape,
the blazing RUFF KUTZ cassette-now a collectors item on e-bay.
With tons more material to draw from, Spectre serves up a fresh platter
of raw beats that is bound to make the herds who suck up that commercial
slop go MAD! Ya heard!? That's right. These tunes are strictly for the
Hedz. If you have a weak heart, weak ear-drums, or a taste for weak-ass
music you got plenty to choose from out there at the mall and MTV.
The man who pioneered such innovative styles as dub-hop, broken beat and
dance noir does it again with a collection of sounds that is altogether
shocking, alarming, caustic, controversial, nonconformist, deranged, eclectic,
and unclassifiable, but always dope. (As in, this ain't no unlistenable
so-called "avant garde" bullshit. This shit is bangin' dun!) Sorcerer
of the sonic realms, Spectre takes you on a journey to the Fringes, where
all things are possible and where the future of hip-hop meets its past.
Be warned, you have stumbled upon a glitch in the matrix, but Salvation
is your own choice.
