    Product Details

    Summary

    Omid raises the standard on producer-driven hiphop albums with Monolith, a project that rests in concept between his Celestial Recordings' smash Beneath the Surface and 2002's stellar Distant Drummer. Equally split between densely layered instrumental pieces and standout vocal tracks, Monolith features some of the world's most important emcees rhyming over Omid's beautifully crafted, Middle Eastern-tinged productions: Buck 65, Busdriver, Abstract Rude, 2Mex, Spoon (of Iodine), Luckyiam.PSC, Slug, Aceyalone, and Murs all give noteworthy performances. Two standout tracks are turned in by Hymnal, whose world-weary tales of moral corruption bookend the album. In a time where some producers are content with just making beats, Omid's mature design speaks volumes with or without emcees.

    With the hugely influential Beneath the Surface album and production for Freestyle Fellowship ("Can You Find the Level of Difficulty in This?") to his credit, Omid continues to enhance his reputation as one of the Los Angeles underground's most respected producers. He's the rare hiphop veteran who refuses to let time or universal adulation weaken his creative instincts. Over the last several years he's remixed The Beastie Boys, produced music for Mary Joy's Tags of the Times, appeared alongside Anti-pop Consortium and El-P on Constant Elevation for Astralwerks, and produced tracks for many of the brightest lights in Los Angeles underground hiphop (2Mex, Abstract Rude, Aceyalone, Busdriver, Dilated Peoples, and Sach). His 2002 instrumental release Distant Drummer and 2003 Mush debut Monolith solidify Omid's reputation as one of the most sought after producers in hiphop.
