The long awaited Evileyz album is finally here in the form of ‘The Wash Basket’, a collation of tracks recorded over the last two years featuring production from NSR head producer Bambu Hands, Pro P, Reklews, Ro Jista and Verb T. Guest verses are provided by current EOW champ and all round lyrical machine Tenchoo alongside NSR label mates Amos and Spider Jaroo.
The Blackpool based rapper has worked on a number of collaborative NSR albums recently which paved the way for this slice of homegrown hip hop with a soulful twist reminiscence of a tribe called quest.
‘Microphone Check’ opens up the album with a heavy double bass courtesy of Reklews giving the listener a peek into the imagination of the seaside citizen as he skips over the beat with a distinctive, idiosyncratic flow. ‘Lets go’ follows the opener produced by Pro P, another boom bap banger with serious head nod factor. ‘Got That S**t’, ‘Big Mouth’ and ‘F#@k Bill Murray (Groundhog Day)’ all bear the hallmark of 'Evileyz’ style and comedic approach to his lyricism and showcase his naturally funny nature on the mic over cuts from Pro P and Punning Clan representative Ro Jista.
Verb T produced ‘funny thing’ highlights the never-ending problems within relationships and takes the album down a darker route production wise as Bambu Hands’ eerie soundscapes begin to seep through the speakers on ‘Garden Of Eden’ featuring the vocal skills of Tenchoo, ‘Goblins’, ‘Ready For Eyz’ and ‘The Stand’; the latter two being co-bodied by Amos and Spider, neither strangers to a Bambu/Evileyz joint.
This album sums up the current trend at Northern Structure Records. Hard beats, dope bars and ill vibes; Nothing more, nothing less. For all booking enquires, interviews or general information contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
