Product Details

Summary

Cut-up old school hip hop style with banging funk & soul samples that nods to KRS-One & Public Enemy, offers a message in a time where mainstream rap fails to even scratch the surface.

A juxtaposition of sounds spanning the last five decades, this conscious work, that nods to KRS-One and Public Enemy, offers a message in a time where mainstream rap fails to even scratch the surface. "The Dark Realities of the Moment" puts a magnifying glass up to todays climate and asks relevant questions. With the influence of Gang Starr, DJ Shadow, A Tribe Called Quest and other Golden Era Hip-Hop artists, this debut album incorporates funk, rock, jazz and world styles. Armed with an MPC, turntables and a room full of vinyl, Professor Brian Oblivion formed his first full length release.

Question: First, we must ask, who Professor Brian Oblivion is, then we can continue to outline his method. With a sense of dystopia, he thought to himself, "What can I contribute to society"? Disproportion of wealth continuously polarizing communities, decade-plus-long war, economies destined for failure; those who turn a blind eye to these issues may just hear the sound of alarm pulsing through these 10 tracks. Oblivion presents his contribution as a collage of sounds from the past that are relevant to the discontent of the present state.

Research: As a musicologist compiles data on the field, recording and documenting song, Professor Oblivion researched various libraries in the thick underbelly of vinyl habitats: flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores and hoarders' caves. He dropped a needle to countless grooves of hundreds of pounds of records, in search of anything that resonates the dissent of society's condition.

Hypothesis: If messages in our airwaves create a culture of complacency, then music must be made to shine a light on "The Dark Realities of the Moment".

Experiment: With records collected from the past 15 years, samples were taken, processed and compiled, to contribute to culture, a critical musical survey of today's society.

Conclusion: "Making funky music is a must!" -KRS One

Results: To be determined upon distribution.
