ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the last five years, Michael Jackson died, Mini-me made a sex tape, the pregnant man gave birth, a time traveler appeared in a Charlie Chaplin film and Self Taught made an album that will undoubtedly overshadow all of these things.
Heavily influenced by golden-era hip hop but relevant to today’s sound, Five Year Journey is being dubbed as a new-age throwback. The album includes 15 songs with features from Inkspill, K-Rec, Mike Decline, and Allan Rodger and is seamlessly woven together with transitional cuts from K-Rec, a producer/turntablist, who re-mixed "It's Tricky" by Run-Dmc, which soon became the title track for the Electronic Arts video game SSX Tricky. The album is dedicated to the group’s longtime friend, Colin Van Dyk, who passed away unexpectedly in 2010.

Self Taught consists of producer/mc’s Vintage and Cliff Herman (Cloud City Classic) as well as the soul singing crooner himself, Jay Robillard. The group released one album, Arrival, in the summer of 2006, which was featured on ESPN (Barrell Hunting Season), Gravity Chasers (Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival), some random dirty porno and WEFUNK Radio. Since the release, Self Taught has been working on new tracks at a feverishly inconsistent pace with long hiatuses devoted to time leaching girlfriends and life sucking day jobs.

Real Hiphop
Best underground hip-hop album of 2012, comparable to "Illcandescent" Versis.
Classic beats, and flawless vocals.
East Van's true colours shine through these tracks! Huge props to these guys!
