ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A native of the KinkyNasty (a.k.a Cincinnati), Nygh is six years deep in the realm of instrumental hip hop. He began as an understudy to fellow nasty native, Fat Jon and has graduated to his own school of expertise with his new album, Circling Vultures.
When it comes to instrumentalist influences, Nygh cites Pete Rock, Rjd2 and DJ Shadow as crown inspirations. But, this does not mean he is a carbon copy of the blueprint. Nygh brings a flavor all his own by mastering the software sequencing program, Fruity Loops. He might not embrace the same Excalibur of instrumentalists in his court but, Nygh's use of the digital program does not prevent him from creating the same soulful mixes and rhythmic chops of the traditional beat machines.
In the past Nygh has released a completely self-promoted EP, titled Speechless and even created his own Jay-z remix album, which he titled The Pink Album. He has been featured on several underground emcees albums and is working with others for future release.
The release of Circling Vultures will burn the first ring in a redwood tree. This 14 song LP is a journey through sentiment, isolation and muse. With each song, Nygh crafts movements, building highs and lows, weaving the listener through intricate levels of instrumentation. His music ranges from soundtracking theme music to villain's evil existence on "Images of the Sun" to exposing a deep-seeded love to a significant other on "When I Met You."
It is headphone music for long walks in city veins, the sound of scorned lovers alone in disparagement and hope for a brighter day all gift wrapped for your eardrum enjoyment. With the help of political, humorous and emotional samples Nygh has arranged an album full of inventive sounds to accompany his obscure samples; making Circling Vultures enjoyable no matter the mood.

A nice tune to carry.
With it's ticklish entry, and ascant backround beats, even Nyghs first two tracks make you go hmmm... Suddenly trumpets blare through your head and you're at a completely different place. The music skips along and by the fourth track you realize that each and every song is going to be different than what you expect. Without warning, my feet begin to move of their own violation and I can't really sort out which beat I'm following. Then some 60's detective tv show's voice over drones in, eventually droning back out and into the voice of Nygh. Some awesome rythm's follow, along with some interesting back and forth action with my speakers. From then I spiral on, every now and then bumping into some random inturlude that might have a deeper meaning that I can't unravel, until I slam face first into some ruefulish lyrics by Ben Stiller. Atfer walloping through some political hurdles, I plungle through my last few seconds before the end of the CD, landing squarly in the middle of some kind of chant, probably to tie it all up or something.

Overall I rate Nygh's album, Circling Vulures, abso-extrinsic. Buy one, buy two; they make great gifts.

Dope!!!
There isn't much more to say about this CD than to say it is pure dopeness. From beginning to end my head was noddin' and shakin', noddin' at the beats and rhymes, and shakin' at the naysayers who think Hip-Hop is dead. According to Nygh's Circling Vultures, Hip-Hop is alive and well. Good job homie

instrumental hiphop that demands focus.
Cricling Vultures is that mess. it's one of the few instrumental hip-hop records that is difficult to ignore. you know hpw you do with fat jon, or bonobo or blockhead, shit, or even my stuff. press play, call a brizzle, spark some'm, open a text, etc.

generally, at best, instrumental hip-hop is gorgeous background noise. nygh's record is not for your corners, it's on some upfront, finger pushing in your neck shit. midnight in a perfect world has nothing to do with dude's record, and that's a good thing, oddly enough.

the sequencing is solid as hell, the movement is good money, top to bottom. also, the shit BANGS. the mix is profuckingfessional.

most importantly though, these are songs. not beats, songs. the difference between two slices of french bread and a hoagie that could save your life on the right day in the wrong summer.

if you dig music that's a little more angry than it is confident, with some stifflegged drum progging, this shit is for you.

favorite tracks: A Love Gone Wrong, When I Met You, Improvise.

great job homie.
