It’ll be another week before Life In Analog by The Other Guys will be released but I am able to give you a song to keep you warmed up until July 22nd is here. They are joined with old friends Tanya Morgan to deliver to you “Friends Old & New” and maybe you can become one of their new friends too.
Von Pea can be found in the new one by The Other Guys called “Renovations”, taken from an instrumental project called After The 9 To 5. The video is part of The Other Guys’ video series Breaking Down The Breaks so break it down to understand what is breaking.
Hip-hop as a 7 inch 45 rpm single may not be as massive as a 12″ single but there’s a small but devoted group of collectors who like it, not so much for the collectiility (although I’m sure that’s part of it) but because it’s cool to have. Even better when it’s an artist someone likes and with a devoted audience, Substantial’s new single may soon sell out when released. It’s a co-release between Origu & HiPNOTT Records and it has “Follow The Master” b/w “Cool Mornings, the B-side also featuring singer Deborah Bond. “Follow The Master” is produced by The Other Guys while Algorythm handled “Cool Mornings”, both songs are previously released. You can pre-order the 45 directly from the UK at Origu Records or get an autographed copy if you pre-order below from Bandcamp.
Virginia rapper Substantial is about ready to drop his fourth album very soon but leading up to it will be a series of three EP’s, starting with The Past… (HiPNOTT), which he did with producers The Other Guys. Five new songs will eventually lead to The Past Is Always Present In The Future later in the year, so you know that means the Present and Future EP’s will be just as good as this one. The Past… features contributions from Tanya Morgan’s Von Pea, along with See King and DJ Jav, so stream and listen, then make a purchase.
A gift from HiPNOTT Records is here in the form if a new song produced by The Other Guys for Substantial. “360 Degrees” also marks the return of Gods’Illa, which is more than welcome to my ears.
Von Pea and The Other Guys have a new video off of their To: You album and if you’ve been playing it a lot as of late, you may enjoy that it’s for the song “Chasing Amy aka In Your Heart”.
Von Pea has another song done with The Other Guys and this time he’s welcoming in THe Lessondary for “Connect Four”, which features Donwill, Ilyas, Spec Boogie, Aeon, and Jermicide in a song that may be one of the best you’ve heard (or will hear) in 2014. Do not deny its greatness.
Von Pea of Tanya Morgan is on a solo mission for the time being, with an album coming out called To: You and for you is the first video from it called “So East Coast”. To: You will be released three weeks from now on November 25th.
Last week, The Other Guys presented one of their new songs called “15 Cents”. This week, The Other Guys present one of their new videos, which happens to be for the song “15 Cents”. This means you received 30 cents from these guys but after watching and listening, you’ll note that it’s worth so much more. The song is from their latest project Seeds Of Ambition, which you may check out below via Bandcamp.
Sometimes when you have nothing more than 15 cents in your penny jar, you feel like breaking out and causing damage but don’t think it’s necessary. On top of that, you don’t have a criminal record and your credit is bad as is, why threaten it. The Other Guys know your pain, which is why they made a song called “15 Cents”, which may cover on just dealing with a situation and, as the other saying goes, keeping head above water. If you’d like to hear more from The Other Guys, check out their latest album Seeds Of Ambition below via Bandcamp.
