    Product Details


    Monochrome Skies is an atmospheric and melodic listening experience from beginning to end. Produced in it's entirety by Luxembourg beat-maker Jesse James, the album dives much deeper into the minds of its creators than its hardcore predecessor. It begins as an animated exposition, but slowly takes you on a journey through the tempest which represents many of society's woes, the struggles of everyday life, and the power of complex, cryptic lyrics. With themes including the mysteries of death, government conspiracies, the love of music (which can verge on addiction) and the many pitfalls of the music industry, this project shows a whole new facet of Epidemic's artistic capabilities. Staying true to their roots however, and with the MC's maintaining their multi-syllabic styles, there are still some songs highly reminiscent of the signature sound heard prominently throughout their debut album "Illin Spree." Features include LMS, Efeks (of Prose), Estee Nack & Purpose (of Tragic Allies), and guest production by One-Take. Scratches were provided by DJ Tha Boss.

    Comment: Probably the most technical MCs I've ever heard. Dope vocab. 360 degrees. Quality beats and extremely sharp lyrics. Been listening to 'Stay Golden' on repeat. Not many songs can do that for me.

    Comment: This is the album that got me into Epidemic, consisting of the two in '89 born MCs "Hex One" and "Tek-Nition." They both use highly intricate rhyme patterns and are definitely amongst the most technical emcees you probably have ever heard. So, if you're into complex polysyllabic rhyme schemes with lots of internal rhymes, vocal assonance and an overall unbelievably and mind-blowingly high rhyme density - these dudes are the pinnacle. The beautiful, sentimental beats complement the vocals perfectly. Definitely keep an eye on "Hex One" and his group "Epidemic."

    Comment: notice how the last three months this album has sold out but still hasn't reached #1 . theres no denying it, this album is pure, raw, hip hop at its finest. luv from los angeles. we need more music like this, and stuff coming out from confidence beatz. down with the mainstream brainwashing our youth, cuz we were once in there shoes. gotta influence ur bros, cousins,nephews real hip hop.

    Comment: Monochrome Skies has distinctive and better sound than Illin' Spree in the sense that it's focus was on the depth and versatility to scribe messages entailing a story and not just rhymes describing dominance upon mainstream "rappers". The musical structure (beat) has changed with the addition of intricate instruments, giving the album almost a dark element with some shade of light. I can go on for a while about how good this album is, but I'll conclude by saying that Hex and Tek have definitely showed and developed their penship. I liked Illin Spree a lot but I like the flare Mono Skies has within.

    Comment: this album was alright. the rappers were phenomenally talented. the beats are what made it boring to me. 3/5 and the beats themselves were really good... but I feel like once you've heard one, you've heard the entire album... as far as production goes. just got bored of it halfway through the album.

    Comment: Epidemic is without a doubt one of the best groups to come out within the past few years. They killed it on Illin Spree which is their first album and if you don't have it yet I strongly suggest you pick it up. This album is going to incredible. Check out their youtube video on the making on this and you'll see.
