Apparently, I completely missed the boat on an album that the homie Scuare released about six months ago. Here’s the skinny on the project, straight from Exociety :
“Scuare is a Brazilian-American bedroom rapper/beat maker based in Austin Texas. His intricate flows and melodic tendencies have earned him a small but dedicated following as a member of the duo …&more… and internet rap collective Exociety. In the years since Alphabet Soup, his first solo release, Scuare has steadily evolved a style that is unique to himself.
Phenomonal, almost entirely self-produced, recorded, mixed and mastered, is Scuare’s first solo LP since 2013. Loosely playing off themes of the phenomenal and noumenal world, he illustrates the shift in his thought process; from obsessing over internal analysis towards considerations beyond his own frame of reference, to the world of motivations and perspectives that exists outside his own limited understanding, with the hopes of leading a more empathetic and positive lifestyle. Joined by frequent collaborators no1mportant and Rav, as well as instrumental additions from FLOOG, BlkPwRngr, and Sow, this project marks a new chapter in Scuare’s discography.”
The work is definitely dope, so do the main things : stream the album, download the album and share it around. Because the beautiful people at Exociety care about us as consumers, the album is a name your price download, so if you’ve got a few bucks to spare, make it happen!
Another dope music video has been released for one of the many dope …&More… tracks that exists. This go round, Ndelible Ink lent a visual hand for Faces Places, and the end product will most certainly occupy a space in the depths of your mind. The setting is rustic, the juxtaposition between the presentations of Scuare and no1mportant are pitch perfect, and the main track is bookended by two of the instrumental tracks off of Existence Is Futile. You’ve heard me say it before, and I’ll say it again until it happens.. how are these cats not signed or at the next level yet? Don’t sleep, Austin, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to say you’ve been down since day one when these cats eventually blow up.
With so much talent in the Austin hip-hop scene, it’s amazing that we don’t see more producer-led projects featuring the best of their MC affiliates from track to track. Ruler Why comes to mind, and I’m sure I’m forgetting others, but the numbers aren’t as high as they potentially could be. Retr05pect, however, looks as if he’s attempting to skew that data with the release of the rock solid project The Real Estate Sessions, a project rooted in the discovery of a 45″ record collection at an estate sale. The production throughout this project is top notch, as one would expect Retr05pect production to be.. it’s paced well, the skits provide just enough breathing room between song groupings, and the choices for MCs were right on the money. You’ll find some of my favorite people on these tracks : Click-Clack, Muggzy Flowz, Scuare, no1mportant, Rudi DeVino, and Black DaVinci all spit quality bars and concepts. I’m looking forward to keeping this one heavy in my DJ rotations.
OVRLD‘s The Hot Conversation podcast is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite podcasts out there, local or otherwise. The latest episode contains almost the perfect storm of ingredients and topics : Protextor and JRo (as per usual), Scuare and no1mportant (…&more…), and topics ranging from DVD rot to racism in the Star Wars universe to Star Trek color shirt significance to sexy Prince posters, and all kinds of fun stops in between. This had me laughing so hard at work, I had to make sure to keep the laughs down. Great stuff.
Austin Mic Exchange has literally been a factory of growth, productivity and exposure for a large handful of up and coming Austin based hip-hop artists, and for a select few, it has been the key factor to taking bigger steps and making moves. One of that select few is Scuare, a cat who came in day one with amazing skills. After collaborating with no1mportant to create the incomparable …&more…, Scuare has stepped back into the solo realm to drop a new project, Alphabet Soup. I expect nothing but thought-provoking rhymes, awe-inspiring performances and the want for more music almost immediately after diving into this one… hopefully the rest of you take the time to grab this project, share with others, and as always, support local.
Sometimes, pure skill and talent simply cannot be denied. Enter Scuare and no1mportant, two MC/producers who individually are capable of doing great things. When combined, however, these two work on a wonderfully harmonic resonance. Both cats have unique, rapid-fire and melodic styles that are similar enough for the duo to make total sense, but different enough from one another to compliment one another effortlessly.
A statement from …&more… concerning their amazing sophomore release, Existence Is Futile :
“In many ways it’s a celebration of a loss of ultimate purpose and growth through acceptance. The Star Trek metaphor helps to illustrate that notion through what we think is a pretty comical lens.
Outer Space is often juxtaposed with samples and lyrics that relate to how people view sex and relationships. These themes represent opposing points on the spectrum, and serve as anchors from which to expand.”
Take the time to dive into this wonderful piece of art. There is no sign of a sophomore jinx here.
Wow. Existence is Existential, the debut offering from …&more…, was already way ahead of its time when it dropped. I knew that when they hit us with a follow-up, it would be good. I had no way of fathoming that it could potentially be as good as the lead single, Faces Places, is setting the bar. Point blank, period, this is the jam. I am stretching the depths of my mind to find something grounding to say about this song, because it literally woke me right up from the first second. Good god, I can’t wait for Existence is Futile to drop.
