Free Album: Sapient – Famine Friends

November 1, 2009

Famine Friends is Sapient’s response to the “famine” occurring in the field of indie music – his response is naturally a flood of content. Upholding his promise to “make more”, Sape brings you another album, showcasing his uncanny consistency as an emcee and producer, in hopes to raise the standard of DIY music…if diamonds were free, why pay for garbage? Produced entirely by Sapient, and accompanied by three music videos, Famine Friends is a FREE gift to the heads, and a “fuck you” to the majors.
Check out the Famine Friends page here, or hit the button below for the direct download.

Famine Friends will also have 3 music videos supporting it’s release.

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.”

Sapient is an emcee that also boasts much more than self-sufficiency when it comes to producing bangers that make your mom wish you had never been born. His latest project shifts gears and has some of the Northwest’s finest producers (also NY and CA) taking a turn remixing tracks off his solo album Make More. With contributions from Budo, Rev. Shines (of Lifesavas), Simple (of Sandpeople), Oldominion veterans Smoke, Mr. Hill & Pale Soul, plus many more, this FREE download lets you hear how Sapient sounds when other people lace the beats. Make Morphine features a different producer for each track!

DJ Green ft. Doc Vaporz, Cool Nutz & IAME – “Rose”

August 7, 2009

DJ Green’s Myspace;

“Hello, my name is DJ Green. I produce music, which means I make the music side of things. No, that is not me rapping or singing; however, that is I playing the piano/drums/guitar. I have a new album out called “Demo to the World.” I tried to capture the feeling of a Portland summer day and put it into audio. I believe I succeeded with the helps of hip-hop legends the Lifesavas, Cool Nutz, and Sandpeople, as well as indie rockers Eskimo and Sons. Furthermore, I believe artists like Sol, Emerson Valetine Lyon, and Doc Vaporz, who are all amazingly gifted up-and-coming musicians, brought a refreshing sound to the album. It was an honor to work with such talent, and I’m hoping you, as the listener, will give our songs a chance.”
