Radioinactive – “Akashic Record, The” – [Flying Carpet Studios]

It’s been a long time since Radioinactive has released new material (Soundtrack to a Book, 2006). The history of Radioinactive begins with Log Cabin Crew in the early 90′s and featuring Murs, Eligh, and Scarab. Later he collaborated with Awol ONE and MC Circus which would turn into the Shapeshifters, releasing The Planet of Shapes (1997), Know Future, and Shapeshifters Was Here (2007). These two collectives, out of LA, were centered around the underground hip hop mecca on the West Coast, the Good Life Cafe . Radioinactive has a distinct West Coast/So Cal style similar to other indie hip hop artists from the era/area. On The Akashic Record, Radioinactive pairs humor and and nostalgia with his a rhythmic, syncopated cadenced rap style. Akashic is a Sanskrit word meaning “aether” or rather “ether” in both its elemental and metaphysical senses. In hinduism, Akasha means the basis and essence of all things. It is the fifth element of life and it’s main characteristic is Shabda (sound). The Egyptian American/LA based artist, takes simple subject matter and merges middle eastern elements to west coast roots.
