Presence Felt :: ‘Wolves’ From WORK


word from WORK:

“Cultivated from the heavy heat and time spent between TASK (birdlikebats) in New York and EVAK1 somewhere south of Houston.  Wolves finally offers us a follow up to All That Is Solid MeltsWolves features a wild pack of guest vocalists, boiler room beats, and harrowing raps slammed together and pounded out the stereo like beers after a hard day.  WORK is putting it in, a workman’s craft – at the bottom of hip hop’s ivory tower are the bricklayers crafting the foundation, sweat dripping from brow as their raps hurl through the stale air, the beats crush and push hard.  Chew Them Up, The Cleaver League, Babelfishh, James P Honey, Perseph1, Mildew, and Beastmaster join in on vocals to the broken beats and classic hip hop stylings.”
