Product Details


New Haven songwriter/ multi-instrumentalist/ rapper Ceschi Ramos (pronounced chess-key) and Berlin producer DJ Scientist (Gunter Stoppel) initially connected around 2005 over a mutual adoration of rare 60s/ 70s psychedelic, prog and folk rock as well as 90s hip hop. On their first record together, "The One Man Band Broke Up", both gentlemen evoke their influences creating a completely original sounding, melodic, dark and unabashedly progressive hip hop concept album.

Based around the ever revisited topic of the rise and fall of a musician, in this case one named Julius and The Bearded Saviour, "The One Man Band Broke Up" is as much about Ceschi's own fear of failure as it is about personal experiences in a dog-eat-dog music industry. As Ceschi's voice moves from meticulous almost mathematical rhythms to aggressive nearly punk howling to scat-like rhymes, Scientist layers epic montages of samples, dynamic drums, along with chopped live instruments to compliment the diversity of styles. The album even slides in two of Ceschi's acoustic based tunes complete with violins, banjos and ukeleles. Friends including Sole, Astronautalis, Radical Face, 2econd Class Citizen, Cars & Trains, and MiC K!ng also contribute instrumentation and vocals. The combined outcome is a post-modern hip hop project unlike anything else the two musicians have previously released.

It's been four years since Ceschi's last album "They Hate San Francisco False" slowly but surely gathered a following around the world because of its honest and unique blend of left field hip hop and indie folk. During that recording hiatus Ceschi relentlessly toured the US, Canada, Europe and Japan with independant heroes such as Myka 9, Awol One, Sole and Onry Ozzborn all while starting his own successful record label, Fake Four Inc., and recording his latest album with Equinox Records' founder DJ Scientist.

Comment: eh...i don't see what the hype is about...hipster rap is a lame sub-genre...some decent beats but the sing-songy lyrics and acoustic guitar made me feel I should be at a renaissance festival watching joust matches

Comment: Yo this album has been on constant rotation in my ride since it came out. I don't understand the negative reviews. I admit some of the rhymes are a little too fast to decipher but the flow still sounds dope and is on beat, which keeps the tracks "musical". The beats are also original and clean! This reminds me of what Anticon was trying to do but failed miserably at by being a little too avant garde. Ceschi please come to Austin and bless us with a show. You would be a big hit here. Peace

Comment: a TRUE 5-star masterpiece. I literally listened to this well over ten times in a row yesterday start to finish. TIMELESS CLASSIC. it's like this could've come out forty years ago or far in the future it's both ahead of its time while being so comfortingly familiar like an album you've rocked your whole life and could never forget. I could probably write volumes about this incredible work of art but for now, if you truly love music you are doing yourself and the human race a gross disservice by not coping this and playing it for everyone you know
