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.

Odds and Ends

Tigard Times has a nice article on IAMe and his freshly released album ‘I Am My Enemy’ that you can peep here.

Hot Indie News has the song ‘Dapper Mob’ off the “Long Story, Short…” EP available for streaming. The song is accompanied by a short writeup with a quip from Sapient. Check it here.

And finally, ESPN has used Sandpeople music in their online video for the X-games Skate Street gold medal winner. I’d embed it but it’s not allowed, so go ahead and watch it here.
