ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andromeda is Hip-Hop at its best. Combining the basic elements of Hip-Hop Music - namely a DJ and an emcee - with the desire to see where the artform can progress without contradicting its own rules, DJ Polaris and Brainstorm draw from the same source which has made rap culture one of the leading influences in the world today.

Having formed in 1993 primarily as a production team and duo (known then as "Original School"), the 2 member crew have taken their family ties, life experiences, and musical backgrounds to craft a sound that is purely their own. With a style reminiscent of the so-called "Golden Era" of rap music, Andromeda uses hard beats, crisp melodies, and inciteful subject matter to draw their audience into a world of relentless lyricism and turntable mastery that is innovative without breaking the spoken rules of Hip-Hop Culture. They will tell you themselves that "originality and fun" are at the core of "The Andromeda Sound", along with addressing social issues that affect masses of people today and generations to come.

Having themselves witnessed and experienced nearly every era of rap, DJ Polaris and Brainstorm choose to be different in this current mix of "cookie-cutter" mainstream acts and underground cult followings by simply making the music they want to make - a simple formula which has gained them not only a core audience of fans, but also the respect of musicians from numerous genres of music. Whether in their high-energy live show or on any of their various releases, Andromeda strives to achieve their goal of producing "timeless" Hip-Hop Music that you can feel.

"The Need" - A musical conversation with Andromeda about the state of Hip-Hop amongst global affairs today. With Brainstorm on the mic, superb production from DJ Polaris sets the landscape for clean, socially-conscious lyrics that not only move heads, but also stimulate minds. This dynamic duo raise the bar for fellow artists, while filling the void for Hip-Hop fans wanting music with substance. All in all, Andromeda says what needs to be said. The result is pure Hip-Hop satisfaction. Once you've experienced it for yourself, you will agree... Andromeda has what you need.

Classic Hip Hop beats and rhymes. We NEED alot more of this.
Andromeda comes nice on this one. Pure hip hop, no filler. Backed by socially intelligent subject matter and classic beats and cuts, this album is well worth the purchase.

Get it......You need it......

Marcus W. from Germany

True Rap Music - Andromeda
"The Need" unveiles the skill, creativity and power of Polaris & Brainstorm! In my opinion this album is much NEEDED...

Priceless Princess

True hip hop returns
A wonderful blend of tightly woven beats and carefully honed lyrics, Andromeda fills a void in the musical heart. Originality and avoidance of duplication gives the listener a chance to explore the trueness of Hip Hop. This CD is well worth the buy as it would very well address your need for solid Rhymes and beats.

kOri

this album takes you back to originality in HipHop
This is reminiscent album, of a time when HipHop was real, mindful, interesting, and fun.

mayhem

this is how it should be done
this is what i'm talking about. rappers who think before they spit. This cd gave me flashbacks of the days when creativity was the most important factor in determining respect. dope beats and rhymes to make you think. Fits right between heiroglyphics, wu-tang, and public enemy.
these cats should open a school for rhyming and djing.
this is one of the best cd's i bought in about 2 years.
and that's saying a lot. 12 o'clock.
