Seige Monstracity is an anomaly in the music industry. He rides the fence, providing the contemporary soundtracks for successful commercial artists such as YG, Tyrese, Keisha Cole, and Marsha Ambrosius, as well as producing grimey backdrops for underground artists like Bizarre, Bad Lucc, and Namebrand.
This is a collection of the latter. Seige’s debut LP contains 12 incredible doses of heavy beats, chopped up breaks, and obliterated samples. A Detroit transplant in Los Angeles, both cities are omnipresent at all times on the LP.
“Swahililand” is a west-coast interpretation of the classic “Stakes Is High”. “Careless” revives a classic David Axelrod moment. “Dirt Bag” sounds like a late night liquor store robbery. “Doves” takes a classic from one of our all time greats who we lost recently, and transforms it into a ride thru the hood on a beautiful day in Los Angeles.
This is not to be missed. Another classic collection of beats from Street Corner Music.
