Self-Made Loner

by Sample the Martian

Self-Made Loner is an amazing blend of introspective and sci-fi metaphor lyrics over beats that break all the rules of hip-hop. One thing that ties together the whole journey of this CD is the grooves that drive each song.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Features artwork from Image illustrator Tom Scioli! This CD is considered the dark step-child of Nerdcore. Think Paul's Boutique meets Nine Inch Nails. The song topics range from zombified friends to tiny space-ships stuck in tractor beams to raw poetry over dirty electronic beats.

"Sample the Martian mixes the creativity of early Digital Underground with the musical complexity and forward thinking of MC 900 Foot Jesus. People often ask me what the next generation of hip-hop will sound like. 'Self-Made Loner' is it!"
~MC Lars

Sample the Martian was featured on abc's police drama: Detroit 1-8-7

"eMpyre ramireX is a hip-hop MC that is as amusing as he is clever. The lyrics are tight, the tunes are catchy as hell and the whole Self-Made Loner record is a breath of fresh air."
Metro Times [Detroit Weekly] 06-12-201

"The man known as Empire started his intergalactic musical journey on the piano at the age of 12. From there, he's become a self-taught musician, having learned guitar, bass, drums, synth and scratching by ear. In 2010, a full-length Sample the Martian LP, Self-Made Loner, was released, showcasing a full album of the artist's spacey, sample-heavy, robo-trippin' hip-hop amalgamations."
- Real Detroit Weekly

"Sample the Martian is just as the name suggests. Its a world away from all rap albums and one of the most refreshing things Ive heard in years. "Self-Made Loner is a work of art; From the cover and 12 page booklet to the carefully crafted musical arrangements and lyrics to match."
