Omerta-RhymeJunkie

East coast duo Constant Deviants released their new album “Omerta” on June 28th.

Their fifth official studio release following “Concrete Utopia”, “Amongst Friends”, “Diamond” and “Avant Garde” has a theme running throughout, inspired initially by M.I. and DJ Cutt’s respective Italian and Russian heritage, though other factors helped shape the overall concept.

Scottish writer Peter Johnstone took a listen and wrote a new feature on the album and the group for US online Rhyme Junkie :

Including the appraisal “it’s safe to say that Constant Deviants have produced another winner.” you can read the article in full HERE

Tomorrow the group will release their third single from the album “Reign Storms”, written by now Baltimore based rapper M.I. last year in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray at the hands of the local police. This obviously has a particular poignancy now given recent events.

Coincidentally, tomorrow is also the day that their album will be distributed to specialist stores worldwide in vinyl and Cd formats by Fatbeats Distribution. It is already available to buy in digital format direct from Six2Six Records HERE

Omerta-RapmaniaczReview

Baltimore MC M.I. and New Jersey producer DJ Cutt – aka Constant Deviants – released their fifth studio album “Omerta” on June 28th.

The duo who first formed while they were based in Brooklyn followed last year’s critically acclaimed “Avant Garde” by adding an additional twist with this year’s album, applying a theme throughout based on their respective Italian and Russian heritages.

The “mob” references are metaphorical, juxtaposing lifestyles by adopting the roles of Luciano and Lansky who shared their nationalities. A series of short stories demonstrate situations in a comparative way rather than the hackneyed “mafiosa rap” of the past.

The latest review to be published is by Italian online RapManiacz. Read what they have to say HERE

Constant Deviants_v3

During their recent visit to NYC to promote the new album “Omerta”, M.I. and DJ Cutt of Constant Deviants caught up with Rapstation’s Tim Einenkel in Brooklyn to talk through a number of subjects

They discuss the concept behind the album, and the metaphorical role playing element adopted via the personas of Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky. They delve deep into the specific thought process involved and differentiate between a perceived “mafiosa rap” approach to one which juxtaposes circumstances of four people with identical heritages.

AOW

The discussion moves to the duo’s writing and recording process, comparing when they formed in Brooklyn to the current dynamic of operating from Baltimore and New Jersey. Appropriately at this point they talk more about their back catalogue and explain why they still give priority to producing an album as a cohesive body of work.

DJCutt

DJ Cutt then speaks more on his overall approach to production, how he determines the feel for a record and the various musical genres he sources for samples. Giving his thoughts on the diversion hip hop and rap has taken over the years, he suggests his own style is born of “tunnel vision”

MI2

Meanwhile M.I. explains why very few artists have had any longlasting influence on him, instead outlining his alternative sources of inspiration, and speaks on the broader issue of differing approaches to “the art of rhyme” through each generation.

Ending with their thoughts on the best scene from “Goodfellas”, the interview can be listened to in full via the AUDIO STREAM

The album is available to buy as a digital download from Six2Six Records BANDCAMP while CD and vinyl formats are being distributed worldwide by Fatbeats from July 15th.
