DOOMTREE offshoot SHREDDERS are due to release their new album shortly and Suburban Base is the first offering we’ve had from it. The quartet – comprised of P.O.S, SIMS, Paper Tiger and Lazerbeak – deliver a pulsating, DnB tinged jam, which acts as another great strengthener for your Monday morning energy levels. The album, Great Hits, is available for pre-order now.
With empty exclamations of “New year, new me!” ringing out around the world, this period is generally seen as a time of change. Take Chris Orrick, or the artist formerly known as Red Pill, who yesterday announced the retirement of his previous moniker. Unfortunately the name Red Pill now has some pretty bad connotations, thanks to the rise of the online group who chose that name based on a misinterpretation of that scene from The Matrix.
Orrick himself said, “I tried to ignore it, but given my own values and principles and especially given the current political and social climate that we live in, I couldn’t live with myself being associated with their bullshit. From now on I’m going by my real name. You can call me Chris.”
The announcement came with a new video too, for Your Ambition, which is lifted from his Instinctive Drowning album and features Doomtree’s P.O.S. The track is produced by Ill Poetic.
A quick hop across the Atlantic now to catch up with the latest from SHREDDERS, as they continue riding the wave of their recent album release, with a brand new video for Entertainment. The Doomtree quartet seem to have had a lot of fun making this project, which arrives in between their full crew albums. For those unfamiliar with the setup, SHREDDERS is comprised of P.O.S, Sims, Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger. The album – Dangerous Jumps – is out now on Doomtree Records.
Glitchy visual bliss in the new video from SHREDDERS – aka P.O.S, Sims, Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger, of Doomtree fame. Xanthrax is the next single from their upcoming album, DANGƐΓOUϟ JUMPϟ, which is out on 3 November. The album is available for pre-order from the Doomtree store now.
Here is the latest video from P.O.S’s excellent Chill, dummy album, which came out earlier in the year. The Doomtree frontman is doing a European tour in December, including one date in London on 16 December.
P.O.S released a new video yesterday, the next to be taken from his excellent Chill, dummy album. Born a Snake is the opening track from the album and is produced by P.O.S. The album is available to by now via the Doomtree store. P.O.S also recently announced a European tour, including three UK dates in December:
14.12 Manchester – The Soup Kitchen
15.12 Glasgow – Stereo
16.12 London – Kamio
Another strong video from the equally strong new album from P.O.S. Faded is produced by P.O.S and features a guest spot from Lady Midnight. The album – Chill, dummy – is available now on Doomtree Records.
P.O.S released his latest album recently and very good it is too. His style has definitely changed a lot since the Ipecac Neat days, but the evolution hasn’t lost any of the grit that got me into his music in the first place. Yesterday saw another video released from the project, this time for Bully. Chill, Dummy is available to buy now over at the Doomtree store.
Doomtree frontman P.O.S has a new album on the way and yesterday saw the premiere of a new video over on Hip Hop DX.
Lanes is the third leak from the LP, following on from Wearing a Bear and sleepdrone/superposition, which emerged last year. You can pre-order Chill, dummy over at Bandcamp right now and it is scheduled for release on 27 January.
Wearing a Bear is the latest track to emerge from P.O.S, as he links up with fellow Doomtree vet Lazerbeak. In my opinion, these sort of tracks are P.O.S at his best, with echoes of his earlier material coming through strong. The track is available to download now over at Bandcamp.
