Timelapsed Sandpeople piece by Kant

October 19, 2009

Sapient – “Hands On” ft. Illmaculate & OnlyOne
Famine Friends

A couple weeks ago I took the short trip to meetup with artist Kant and film him do a Sandpeople piece. I previously knew of him for the piece he did in promo for IAMe’s I Am My Enemy album;

And a previous Sandpeople piece;

We exchanged contact info at a show a couple months back and made it happen from there. Make sure you send a friend request to check out Kant and his crew’s other works at his myspace!

Happy birthday Sape!

October 16, 2009

Let’s list some accomplishments from the last year;
-Fully produced and wrote for OnlyOne’s side of Police Brutality, contributed to Illmac’s side.
-Fully produced and wrote for Sandpeople’s Long Story Short EP
-Fully produced and wrote for IAME’s I Am My Enemy album
-Produced a lot on B-Sides Vol. 2, and yeah, he wrote raps for this too.
-Fully produced and wrote for The Prime album ‘One Uppers’ with Luckyiam. Coming Nov. 24th!!(and I hear that they have a lot of leftover material. hmm..)
-Fully produced a new Debaser album that was made available for free download
-Fully produced and wrote a new solo album ‘Famine Friends’. Drops Nov. 1st for free right here on this site
-Gathered up a bunch of northwest producers and put out a remix album of Make More titled Make Morphine. Also available for free download.

All of this in the midst of starting his family. Not to mention all the recording, mixing, and mastering he’s done. I’m CERTAIN the list gets much longer than this in the last year. Out of everyone in Sandpeople, Sapient is definitely the hardest to stay up with and is very much a cornerstone of the crew. That said, tilt one back and go wish this man a happy birthday! Maybe throw a ‘thank you’ in there while you’re at it.

Free Album: Debaser – Back To Work

October 1, 2009

Piece of the review from;

“Three years ago Debaser wriggled their way up through the sands of the underground to the surface, surprising both the critics covering hip-hop and the rap fans who listened to it with the quality of their music. Sapient’s production embraced both familiar hip-hop forms and instrumentation outside the norm, while Ethic’s rap had the style and confidence of a well experienced hip-hop artist as opposed to a relative newcomer. Being part of Oregon’s Sandpeople crew clearly sharpened the skills of both men long before the first Debaser album hit stores, but a stunned Jordan Selbo was still forced to proclaim their debut represented “a group transcending the current standards of the genre, concerned not so much with bringing it back as with moving it along.” Thus the stage was set for Ethic and Sapient to be a modern day Guru and Premier, much beloved and often underrated, an outstanding team that musically and lyrically complimented each other perfectly.”
