Album Notes

Sick!! Jazzy Hip Hop!

Dynamic, a San Francisco Bay Area group, represents the newest breed of young musical titans who fuse genres, molding hybrid sounds into the new millennium timescape. Dynamic started at Cal State Hayward as a progressive Jazz group of some repute, but that was just the beginning. Dynamic merged briefly with the East Bay Hip Hop crew, Urban Icon, to form Urban Dynamic, emerging with a Hip Hop flavor which enhanced their Jazz and pop sensibilities. This mighty incarnated quartet entertains with finely crafted songs and a high octane energized performance that leaves the crowd hungry for more.

to write a review


I cant even start to discribe the feelings I have received from this gifted quartet. I am more than honored to have had the privledge to have heard such a godly overthrow of siritual and political ideas from such fresh minds. I beleive that this group of music geniuses are the next leaders in our wasted mainstreem sesspool called the music business. I can only wish that our generation of music makers were at least a pinch as talented as the group Dynamic is every heart beating second of there lives. In closing my final statement is............... DYNAMIC DYNAMIC IS THE SHIT! DYNAMIC DYNAMIC IS THE SHIT! DYNAMIC DYNAMIC BE ROCKIN IT! DYNAMIC DYNAMIC IS THE SHIT!

Weather Report growing up in the hood? Something like that. Never have you heard psychedelic, acid jazz spliced with genetically engineered, soulish hip hop in such a potent, fertile, insanely natural way. Now listen up- if hip hop, especially hybrid hip hop of the creative, non-maintream and esoteric type, is your idea of a tasty trough from which to gulp, fill up your ears with this tasty, perfectly aged brew; you owe yourself a copy of this album.

Tulsa Slim

It is like an acid flashback.
It was almost like being in Wonka's Chocholate Factory. There Umpa Lumpas froloced around in circles. Then I found myself on the yellow brick road fighting off flying monkeys.
Then it was over and I cried... :(

Lucca P

This Cd will chamge the lives of many people.
Photosynthesis grew on me from the inside out. It brought me from childhood to manhood in less than fifty minutes. I only wish it never ended. Thank God I could always rewind that shit.
