Elee X (Impolite Society) collaborates with MPC-smith Sev Seveer on this synthy, spaced-out cut from Uncle EL’s No Doze compilation.
Rapper, beat maker, DJ, and Chicago mainstay, Uncle EL, presents No Doze- a compilation representing an eclectic mixture of sounds from the underground rap and beat scenes of Chicago and beyond. Featured artists include Doc ILLingsworth, OHBLIV, Wino Willy, Lanzo, Radius, Kenny Keys, Jon Rogers and many more. Ranging from left field, ethereal, to classic boom bap, there is one common theme throughout. Don’t sleep!
Young Heavy Souls present their first official compilation album; 20 all-new tracks from a growing roster of skillful artists and producers. Get to know YHS:
These producers have captured their niche through unexplored sub-genres of hip-hop and electronic music. With their progressive sound, this body of work exemplifies what these artists value most – collaboration. Young Heavy Souls was established in 2011. Creative director, Matt Black cultivated a team of like-minded musicians, filmmakers, photographers, and graphic designers throughout the past three years.
“With this project we wanted to showcase our growth as a team as well as spread our music to new audiences. Young Heavy Souls is a family, and this project represents the spirit and sound of our crew,” explained Black.
The majority of the team consists of artists local to the Midwest, but they join forces with musical talents from all over the United States. All artists featured on the current roster have made themselves a valuable asset to this creation. Several guest contributing artists are featured, including Spankalicious, Eddie Logix, and Heavy Color. – Young Heavy Souls
