After creating the Frequency Album, the Monosapiens & Conscious Route return with the frequency remixes. The first remix is brought to you by Rik Mono from the Monosapiens, the release also includes guest production on the other three songs by Audiosyncracy, Blind Digital and Synct. The release brings a diverse range of electronic styles of music.
Monosapiens are Rik & Simon Arbuthnot, they started in 2001. Between them they play guitar, bass, drums, percussion, keyboards, samplers, and whatever else they can find lying around to make a noise with!
Conscious Route is the front man for this project, originally from England (between Cambridge and London), he started out Mossman Skank, later abbreviating his name to Mosman. He is a founder member of now dispersed hip hop crew Fugaizrum, who later became a cross-over Hip Hop and Blues band. He started to write hip hop in 1998, being influenced by names like Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Wu Tang Clan, Roots Manuva, Black Twang, Task Force, Terra Firma, Triple Darkness, Dr John, Eek-A-Mouse, Michael Franti, and Bob Dylan, which in turn all shaped his flow.
Monosapiens & Conscious Route Feat. SoundBone – Frequency #Video
It’s been three years since Werd released his debut album Untitled Scot. However this year on he returns with another solo effort. Featuring production collaborations with various talented people throughout Scotland, the album is both varied in sound and concepts. The 13 track LP is released on both digital and limited edition digipack format via his own self-run publishing S.O.S. based in Edinburgh.
Vaguely following on from the conceptual mixtape Patient Empowerment, Werd speaks from a confused and secluded place in his own mind. His brain cells, or mental cell, depending on listener’s interpretation. Having been left alone and ‘alienated’ from both the world and hip-hop scene, we are given an honest and often critical opinion of the human race and music industry. This is no longer about local hip-hop, pushing the music or gaining exposure. Werd’s new release is a wild mix of emotion based on frustration with our current system of life on a global scale.
Featuring production from: Bigg Taj, Righteous Fist, Konchis, Madman Speakz, Dixie, C. Boyd, Sea-Bass, Tam O’Shatner, Lorne MacDougall, Big Shamu, Loonatic Beats & Dale A Thomson. Album contains no additional vocal features.
