SummaryEcid is a kamikaze visionary: an artist with an all or nothing approach to every aspect of his art and life. Ambitious almost to a fault with an "us against them" DIY mentality, Ecid has self-booked, self released, and self-made his own movement. Ecid doesn't try to sell you on any one way of life, he only sells you on the idea that you can live however you want. All three of Ecid's most recent releases have charted on the College Music Journal's Hip Hop Top 40 chart. Collaborating with the likes of Eyedea, Awol One, and Kristoff Krane along the way, his smashing new album, Werewolf Hologram, is destined to make even bigger waves.
Ecid pushes the limits of sampling, it's not so much what he samples, it's what he does with every note. Pitch shifting and chopping every sample to the point of no return, slapping together psych-rock vocal chops with 808 booms and hand claps, then adding more layers of drum breaks, and echo heavy guitars. Inspired by the duality in humanity, Werewolf Hologram tackles heavy thought provoking topics that really dig into your head. The hooks explode: layer upon layer of infectious melodies evoking color and nostalgia. Ecid brings you into a new world, his world. With a knack for slap stick, smarty pants, one liners that make us smile while shaking our heads in disbelief. His voice is full of charm and just enough personal triumph and tragedy so you believe every word. Werewolf Hologram is an album fueled by the loss of a friend and mentor, a computer crash, and the realization that nothing, not even plastic, is meant to last.
