Ultra Flat Black – “Ultra Flat Black” – [Self-released]

V. Gorian (rapper/writer, and CEO of a marijuana dispensary in Palm Springs) teams up with producer Horrible Him to become Ultra Flat Black (a spray paint color). What they create on this album is pretty fucking cool, each songs starts with a somple of some kind of sound or song or noise, as you wait for the beat to drop.

There’s international string samples in the intro to tracks 1&;, one just starts with the sound of running water (3), vocal samples on track 4, some jazz tracks (5, 7, 8) and one KILLER blues sample throughout track 6!?? The lyrics are somewhat political, but basically he just has a general disgust for the system and how people work, etc.

I made a clean CD which is playable during daytime, but the original is in there for the Safe Harbor folks. Unique, fun samplage and real, clever lyrics.
