After the movie "White Boys" no one expected an MC to come out of Iowa that would of been taken seriously. This was before Arecee's debut entitled "Direction for Children" which is distributed worldwide by New York's Boiling Point Distribution. Surrounded by corn fields, the raspy voiced MC not only managed to produce the ten song EP but also designed the albums packaging. Suprisingly, the album does not suffer from this multi-tasking but is consistant with original beats and lyrics and the occasional guest appearance including an appearance from Sage Francis of Non-Prophets.
Currently Arecee is recording his second album in Boston, Mass.
What the people are saying about Arecee and the new record, "Direction for Children"...
Stealth Magazine - "Immediate associations with Aesop Rock will spring to mind and it could well turn into another one of those MC's who built his name overseas before his own city and country started to recognize him."
Alternative Press Magazine - "Caucasian MC from Iowa who sounds nothing like Eminem or Bubba Sparxxx."
Insomniac Magazine - "An effort like this deserves to be mentioned. Arecee is truly nice on the boards and on the mic (a task that very few can execute well)...a truly solid effort."
boom-bap.com - "This is MAD original. And further on to the production of this album, it's breaking down the very DEFINITION of originality. We've got pure JEWELS right there. "Direction for Children" is an enclosed voyage throughout the mind of a genius, that IS apparent. Cause believe it or not, this is damn near classic material!"
Elemental Magazine - "There's a certain, much needed element of twisted charm and dirty old man humor that seperates him from the ever growing, rhyme-as-many-words-as-possible upstart rapper posse...look for Arecee to make some serious moves."
hiphopinfinity.com - "The real highlight of "Direction for Children" is Arecee's production, which is extremely consistant throughout the album. He doesn't come close to making a wack beat, even once."
