US online music magazine Soundparlor have today featured Los Angeles’ hip hop artist ethemadassassin and also reviewed his new album “Soul on Fire” which releases on 17th September 2013.

The review is an in depth analysis of the various factors which have influenced the album and E as an artist, with him first emerging from North Carolina’s rap battle scene in the 80’s & 90’s, and the life events that have taken place ever since.

While the album does have an eclectic feel as a result, whether in terms of subject matter or the production, there is a consistent classic hip hop thread throughout which acknowledges we’re in 2013.

Summarizing with “it’s ethemadassassin’s music, lyrics, and willingness to take an honest, sobering look in the rear-view mirror that burn brightest across Soul on Fire.” check out the full review HERE The link to the “Soundparlor 10” feature is linked within the review but can be read separately HERE

Look out for the launch of his new official video “Can’t Get Enough” which will be premiering on TheRapUp.Net this Wednesday 24th July at 7am PST / 10am EST / 3pm UK GMT / 4pm CET Its a bangin summer track built around a huge classic soul sample shot out in the streets of LA.

SoulOnFire-NIJIMagazine

Los Angeles’ ethemadassassin releases his solo album “Soul on Fire” on 17th September 2013.

It’s his first solo album since 2008’s “Tomorrow Never Comes” since when he’s moved from Greensboro NC to team up once again with Veteran Eye where they also record and tour as the duo Veteran Assassins.

Having come up through NC’s rap battle scene in the 80’s & 90’s, E still draws a lot of his influence from the Golden Era, but the current album has a contemporary feel to it. The production includes rock, soul & reggae samples mashed with original straight head noddin beats, providing the ideal backdrop for E’s trademark firebrand flow and lyricism.

The UK’s online magazine NIJI has just reviewed Soul on Fire courtesy of Brandon Schiafone

Offered a 9/10 rating, snapshots of the review include:

The album’s production is excellently done, and the mixing and mastering gives Soul On Fire the sound quality as if it’s straight from a major record label. The beats are well chosen and match ethemadassassin’s tonality and subject matter amazingly.

there is no doubt that ethemadassassin is a powerful lyricist and a brilliant rapper who has the ability to be diverse with his music

The first official single “Tiger Blade” was launched on 4th July

East coast veteran duo MI and producer DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, have been turning out hip hop bangers since the mid 90’s.

While MI signed with Arista in 2000, Cutt worked with N.O.R.E. and Roc-A-Fella Records, and the worlds collided again when MI featured with Rick Ross on N.O.R.E.’s “Yup” in 2006.

The duo set up a new label, Six 2 Six Records, and the imprint grew a global reputation for releases with the classic hip hop sound on the classic vinyl format. Fast forward to today, and they have just released their new album “Diamonds” from which this new video “Its OK” is taken

The duo have already begun recording the follow up album, while MI is soon to release a new EP as part of Trilateral Commission, a collaboration with producers from the United States and Europe.

You can get more information on all of Six 2 Six Records’ releases at six2sixrecords.bandcamp.com and reach them on twitter @Six2SixShift
