Echoes Magazine interview EtheMadAssassin

SoulOnFire-Echoescolumn
Echoes Magazine is one of the longest established publications in the UK covering hip hop, rap, jazz, r&b, soul with news, reviews, features produced in both physical and online format

The current September 2013 issue has the usual wide spread of genre coverage, and in Sunil Chauhan’s regular hip hop page he covers news on Ishmael Butler (Digable Planets / Shabazz Palaces) moving to Sub Pop, Kanye West & Rhymefest new non profit organization Donda’s House, Belafonte / Jay Z, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy and his new publishing imprint Infamous Books and Just Blaze providing the soundtrack for the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Included in the column is a new interview with Los Angeles (by way of Greensboro NC) emcee, and one half of Veteran Assassins, EtheMadAssassin. His new solo album “Soul on Fire” releases on 17th September, and the interview addresses his reflection on the 80’s & 90’s Golden Era of hip hop – the time which marks his early beginnings in the game – his tag as a gangsta rapper & why this isn’t a description he recognizes, the rap scene in North Carolina and his time working for Elektra Records.

UK readers can pick the magazine up from stores now, and international readers will have the opportunity to read the whole magazine in 2 weeks when the new website www.echoesmagazine.co.uk is relaunched and will include a page by page flick through.

E’s album is full of powerful lyricism, an honest take on his life journey to date, and includes some quality production throughout.

Check out the videos & audio for the soul laden track Can’t Get Enough which premiered on The Rap Up, What It’s Supposed to Be produced by Japan’s Kyo Itachi, and the Pharcyde-esque “80’s & 90’s” with beats courtesy of Edinburgh’s Sci Fi Stu
