  • Surface Empire - Lucky Me [2005]


    1. Fly
    2. Cerulean Blues
    3. Shrink Rap
    4. Don't Speak (featuring Dan Beck)
    5. Moss
    6. The Making

    Let me start by saying that this is infact a Scottish release, but I felt that labelling the thread "Scottish Hip-Hop" would put people off due to the "gimmick". This is a fantastic EP, and felt that everyone who enjoys underground music should listen to it.

    Surface Empire consists of emcee Sumwon and producer Hudson Mohawke. They hail from Glasgow, but unlike any previous Scottish hip-hop I have uploaded, they are very different. They represent a more alternative side of Scotland (similar to Edinburgh's outfit Pen Pushers) with creative beats and original wordplay and concepts. Before buying this EP I had only heard Sumwon on one track before ("Left Conveys" featuring Loki), but I have saw him perform live many-a-time and knew he could freestyle like crazy; but I never expected an EP that seems so complete as this.

    All the tracks are standouts (especially since there is only six tracks) and from the moment I heard "Fly" I took great affection to Sum and Hudson. The Scottish accent isn't very thick, which means it's probably more approachable than other Scottish material; but with subtle references to Scottish lifestyles, locations and problems it is complete Scottish - and predominantly Glaswegian - music.

    If you wish to support Surface Empire, visit www.farcutrecords.com for buying the EP, merchandise, or even just to reach the group.

    (If there is high demand, I'll get another uploaded.)

                          "Moss" is ill. Too bad this is only an EP, I'd like to hear more.
