The Physics – Take A Win (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 4th, 2013 by Hyphen

My favorite artists in the Northwest, The Physics, just dropped visuals for their Jake One produced “Take A Win,” off Tomorrow People.  You can grab this track and others on the Cornerstone Mixtape J. Moore and I released last month (right here) and be sure to get the full Physics album here.

Congrats to Malice and Mario Sweet from the Physics crew on the birth of their son today too!

Sound Session #374 (8-12-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on August 14th, 2012 by Hyphen

Along with the dope new music from the likes of Scarface, Dion Primo, Andre 3000, Gensu Dean, Olivier Daysoul, Hit-Boy, Kid Cudi, Jared Evan, and more, we had a few guests drop by the SNSS studio this week for some important announcements:

  • Many thanks to the Physics for coming by to play a few songs off their upcoming album, Tomorrow People, which is another classic from the crew.  Without exaggeration, these guys make my favorite music from the Northwest and have been doing it consistently for years now.  I can’t recommend checking out their music enough (do so here) and if you’re in Seattle, be sure to come out to Neumos on August 25th for the release party.
  • Thanks as well for The Good Sin dropping by to talk about his upcoming video shoot for one of the standout records from his last album, The Story of Love x Hate.  He’ll be filming visuals for “Gimme Your Love” this Saturday from 12pm – 6pm at Garfield High School and everyone in the city is invited because the shoot doubles as an end of summer BBQ and Stop The Violence party.  We’ve had far too much senseless violence recently in the town and we should all go show our support at the park on Saturday.  You can enjoy the weather, hang out with the homies, play some dominoes/football/basketball, and spread positivity at the same time.  Be there.
  • Shout to DJ Same, Key Nyata, Ant Beezy, and A-Rawlo for dropping by and speaking on their New School Noise event as well.  It’s going down next Sunday at Neumos and if you’re not rocking out to SNSS, you should be there.  More info here.

And after all that, enjoy the music!

The Physics – Tomorrow People (Kickstarter Campaign)

Posted in Artists, Videos on July 15th, 2012 by Hyphen

As I’ve mentioned numerous times on TAOD, Twitter, SNSS, Facebook, various hip-hop panels, and just about any other place someone’s made the mistake of giving me a voice, the Physics are my favorite musicians in the Northwest.  They make the exact kind of hip-hop I love: soulful, genuine, complex, smooth, laid back, dope music.  They’ve put out a few projects over the years (which I highly recommend you cop right here) and now they’re back with their third full length LP, Tomorrow People.

They’re asking for assistance via a Kickstarter Campaign and any support you can provide will be well worth it.  Cop the album, a shirt, a hat, or even just donate a dollar to support the cause.  Anything you can provide is appreciated.  More information in the video above and the copy below:

After making music together for over a decade and a half, we are close to finishing our third full-length album, Tomorrow People. We are excited to release it on August 25. All we need is help from you.

Tomorrow People is pretty much about dope raps, dope beats, and dope hooks. After putting out our last LP, Love is a Business, and touring with the Blue Scholars last fall, we went straight back to the lab to produce a rap record that is more lyrical than our last, featuring some of Seattle’s best like Jake One, Sol, Grynch, Vitamin D, J. Pinder, and more. With this release, we are on the cusp of attaining our goals as musicians, knowing that tomorrow is unknown, but hoping that tomorrow will be amazing.

Those who pledge will have access to a wide range of incentives, including digital and physical copies of the album before the release date, Kickstarter-exclusive shirts and snapback hats, a verse from Thig, a beat from Justo, invites to a private Seattle hip hop BBQ, and more.

All funds raised through this campaign will help fund the mixing, mastering, duplication, and promotion of Tomorrow People. Anything we raise above our goal will go straight into a still-unannounced fall tour. The more backers we get, the more cities we can play in.

Please help us spread the word, and help us bring our music straight to you! Your support is GREATLY appreciated.

-The Physics
