Description

Prehension on CD

Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Relay's style would remind you if Sun Ra, Stevie Wonder and Parliament were a beat production team.Comfortable with using original playing but also unthreatened by using samples, flipping them up in different ways for sonic diversity.Creating original compositions much like a college artist can cut and paste magazine clippings into a masterpiece of Picasso proportions-not confined to merely looping samples... With influences like Madlib, DJ Krush,and RZA- Relay takes a conceptual approach to hip hop tracks and looks for outside influences that can be flipped to his own style. 'I like conceptual albums and themes - those kind pf things always caught my attention - so I try to aproach each project a little differently, give it a unique sound to fit with that experience.Music is life is music, so there's always something new to try. Prehension is like a time travel back to my younger days, like before I started school- real early days- I remember a lot of gray mornings and afternoons watching TV with my mom and she liked a lot of old mystery shows and movies, and Agatha Christie novels littered the house. So that atmosphere and sound was real strong growing up-I felt it was important to represent it. There was a dark atmosphere yet it still had the protective feel of childhood.' The music sounds like a bugged out excursion into a dense forest of memories while watching an Alfred Hitchcock thriller on a passenger train. Low key filtered basslines, haunting flutes and strings stir the imagination while sub-crazy beats keep a consistent headnod, setting the tone for a serene reflection on your life and times. This isn't party music - so strap on your headphones and let 19 tracks of hip-hop gloominess erupt into your senses. Prehension is a term used by psychologists to describe an infants ability to firmly grasp and pick up an object. In this case it's the ability to grasp a subject- the details of life.
