Ed Rowe x Sleep Sinatra x Concept - Concentrated Forces (Album)

Ed Rowe x Sleep Sinatra x Concept - Concentrated Forces (Album)

"Concentrated Forces" is a collaborative EP between Atlanta word-smith Ed Rowe, Nebraska rapper Sleep Sinatra and New Zealand based hip-hop producer Concept that dropped back on December 20, 2014 via Essenchill Records. I gave the project a good listen earlier today and it's really nice, with both Ed Rowe and Sleep Sinatra touching on a variety of topics over beautiful, boom-bap inspired production from Concept. The beats are soulful and the rhymes are potent, with some tracks featuring socially conscious rhymes while others find Ed Rowe and Sleep Sinatra just straight spitting. The only bad thing about the EP is that it's just so short, featuring only five full tracks and a quick instrumental outro from Concept that just left me wanting more. Hopefully these guys collaborate more in the future since I think I've had "Celestial" on repeat all day. Anyways, count this as yet another strong release from Essenchill Records. Peep it below.

"Earth Cry" will be released on the trios "Concentrated Forces" EP, which is set to drop in November of 2014.

KVH - For The Soul I Was Craving (ft Ed Rowe)

Kyiv, Ukraine hip-hop producer KVH just dropped off a new track from his upcoming collaboration album with Ed Rowe, which is currently set for a fourth quarter 2014 release. The song is called "For The Soul I Was Craving" and its fire. Also included is an instrumental track, titled "Briefly Encounter Soul", which features a soulful sample layered over head nodding boom-bap drums.

While hip-hop is KVH's main focus at the moment, he is a jazzer at heart who derives much inspiration from the greats of that genre. His influences in hip-hop include the likes of 9th Wonder, Dilla, Exile, Dj Premier, and Madlib. KVH has a deep passion for genuine Hip-Hop, and looks to work with MCs with the same love and respect for the art form." If you feel his sound and are interested in working with him you can contact him via email:
