Product Details


Seattle mainstay Onry Ozzborn has spent the last five years on Rhymesayers Entertainment putting out underground hip hop classics such as Grayskul's Bloody Radio and touring and collaborating with everyone from Aesop Rock to Atmosphere. Now he has started a new group with producer Zavala called Dark Time Sunshine - some say this sounds like a "Psychedelic Gang Starr", others refer to the "slight bit of Company Flow twirling in the waters beneath them" - whatever it is - it's some of the most exciting new hip hop to hit ears in a long time. Under the moniker of Cape Cowen, Onry spits abstract anthems while Zavala's boom bap psych rock production swirls, twists and bangs beneath. The album features Aesop Rock, P.O.S., Solillaquists Of Sound, Qwel, Ceschi Ramos, Oldominion, Champagne Champagne, and an array of great vocalists such as Reva Devito, Poeina Saddarth, Kaitlyn Leathers and more.

The duo met a couple of years ago in Portland, OR at a professional DART competition where Zavala was crowned victor and won a life-time supply of Tap Out attire (but that's neither here nor there) - althought it's still a proud moment in DTS history. Both interested in Hip Hop, Punk, Electronics, and Lady GaGa, the two started to formulate a genre of music some call snob rap, dark pop, and/or theatrical lazor blur under the moniker DARK TIME SUNSHINE. After implementing themselves relevant with the FREE album BELIEVEYOUME (released mid November 2009), the duo sets sail soon to bring forth their official debut release of VESSEL (via Fake Four Inc.).

Comment: A few good songs? I'm starting to think you don't listen to half these albums that you're rating. This is one of the best hip hop albums ever made. Never heard anything like it.

Comment: A few comment below me said this is "another El-P knock off" I personally disagree, although they might have a similar sound at a glance, I can't get into El-P, but Dark Time Sunshine was no problem

Comment: Wow. An incredible album. Onry and Zavala aren't affraid to be different at a time in the hip-hop culture where there's a template for the music. 5 Star production, 5 Star lyrics, and 5 Star guests. This is definitely my favorite album of 2010.

Comment: Blazin from start to finish - This release showcases Onry's ability to be versatile. But because Onry flips it up every album and the sound is unique, this release takes a few listens to get use to.

Comment: a masterpiece, DTS is way ahead of its time while totally now. onry + zavala is a classic teaming resulting in a totally original aesthetic, zavala's beats are that next shit and onry is mad slept on, a great and unique emcee. Vessel creates a new sound all the way through. the guest spots are perfect, most especially track 12 w/ Qwel & S.O.S. props to fake four for continually bringing the bangers!!!!!!!

Comment: top-notch; zavala and onry compliment each other's styles perfectly. especially in today's hip-hop, where nearly every rapper is doing an exclusive collaboration with a certain producer, this album/pair truly stand(s) this shit!!!

Comment: That Primor shit is sick. P.O.S. and Aesop on the same track. If that and the Believyoume album ***(Free download @ Fake Four records)*** are any indication, this is gonna be dope.
