Hailing from the crossroads of America, it is only fitting that the brainchild of wunderkind producer, Brian Witzig - The Sound Defects distill a mighty unguent of sonic elements. Steeped firmly in the golden era of production with one practiced hand in sampling and arrangement and the other dirty with the dust of digging crates, The Sound Defects provides the perfect soundtrack for your next cinematic adventure.
Here on their second foray, The Iron Horse, Witzig has created a masterful blend of tracks which function as a resonant travelogue through a criminal American subverse. Bad guys careen through cities looking for their next hit. Johnny Law busts down doors and presses hot steel to the scruff of Jean Jacket Johns face. Angels and devils do battle upon the byways of a nation in turmoil.
"Like your favorite rap record without all those annoying words..."
"Where hip hop should have gone after 1994..."
"The red headed stepchild of Lalo Schiffrin and The Rza..."
"Squeezing every last bit of funk from a chopped break..."
"The logical continuation of classic hip hop..."
All of this and more is being said of The Sound Defects major sophomore album The Iron Horse.
Fearing none and with nothing to lose, The Sound Defects gallops on with this funky break-away album. Including smoothed-out jazz style motifs and heavy rock elements all laced with a thick offering of masterful breaks and kicks, there are very few moods which this gem does not touch.
