Free Album: Debaser – Back To Work

October 1, 2009

Piece of the review from RapReviews.com;

“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.”

BHH interviews Sandpeople

July 16, 2009

BritishHipHop.co.uk just posted up an interview they did with IAMe, Gold, and Ethic. Topics inlude the groups origin, childhoods, Portland’s hiphop scene, and of course, starwars;

“Wookieepedia, the online Star Wars encyclopedia, describes Sand People as “a culture of nomadic, primitive sentients… often hostile to local settlers” does that sum you guys up or can you give us a better definition?

IAME: Thats pretty on point.

Gold: What is Star Wars?

Ethic: Someone really created something called Wookieepedia? But, yea, the definition is suitable.”
