The story of a new beginning rising out of the ashes of a broken disposable culture, the personal journeys of the Terminus artists echoes the story of our time and shows the need for new ideas as we sit on the precipice of disaster. One morning 6Blocc, aka R.A.W, woke up and entered the world of dubstep, transitioning from his well-known Jungle/Drum & Bass sound while taking his honed scratch and chop abilities into his new identity. He’s since been called the king of the Dubstep remix in Los Angeles. His ice-cold Dubstep beats are the fire around which Woes, (Scale Step), Myka 9 (Freestyle Fellowship), and Existerio (Shapeshifters) undertake their own collective journeys, transitioning from straight hip-hop into the deeper tonal world of Dubstep. Kemst, Jroz, Pow Shadows, and The High Sun MC also lay down vocals to record their journeys, making Terminus powerful sound art. The Terminus EP is a chronological exploration of a new philosophy. In Burn Dem Woes and Myka 9 create a dark and urgent call to action against the corrupt monoliths of our failed leadership and power structures. 6blocc’s steady, sometimes violent beats underscore the need for destruction, the savage feeling present in re-creation. Legalize it is all about herb culture, the need for consciousness expansion and flexibility of the mind to escape failed philosophies. Fighting For is a confrontation of the artist and the listener – it challenges the motivations of citizens, their involvement in our culture, and the falseness of all out identities. It is an anthem, a call to action woven in the hard echoing beats. To The People is that last stage, a direct challenge to the crimes of authority, a call to arms from Myka 9 and Woes. Terminus is a mature, involved, and honest exploration of the ability of music to re-create our lifestyles and ways of thinking. The crushing, complicated tracks by 6Blocc are sometimes haunting, swinging from moody and dark to powerful and energizing. 6Blocc uses his incredible skills to bring the vocal abilities of the Terminus collaboration to their complete powers with perfect organic transitions. The point of Terminus is to synthesize a new sound out of hip-hop’s lyrical power and Dubstep’s rich vibrant instrumentals – to create an image of musical revolution from the burnt landscape of the stale and defeatist status-quo of underground music.
