Johnny Madwreck, best known for his group "The Others", is one of the most unsung artists in the underground hip-hop scene. But that's exactly how he likes it. Whether he's rocking the mic in front of 6000 benighted fans at an unannounced appearance or submerged in his secret underground studio the results are always unprecedented. It's as if Johnny Madwreck feeds off of the shadows, immersing deeper into the dark with every new abstruse work of art he releases.
Sounds of the Cypher is a work of art. It boasts a bombardment of handpicked samples with the highest quality of taste converted into beats that penetrate your mind and stay with you for days. At first it's almost too much to take in, the cd boasts almost 40 tracks that are all completely individual in their own right. Yet after the entire album plays through I assure you you will let it play through again. And again. Whether it's the daily commute or the weekly substance abuse clambake, Sounds of the Cypher is guaranteed to enhance your experience.
