Ceschi

Ceschi Playlist

    Ceschi (pronounced Chess-key) Ramos has been in a lot of bands. There’s the experimental post-psych-rock-hop-jazz-fusion outfit Anonymous Inc.started in the mid 1990s with his brother David, the genre-defying latin progressive group Toca which collaborated with everyone from Busdriver to Aceyalone, Hardcore Metal band Dead by Wednesday, the lo-fi synth pop group with Blue Sky Black Death called Deadpan Darling, the Crunk-rap crew Knuck Feast and many more that he may or may not own up to. But most of us know Ceschi Ramos best as a one man band. Drawing from the experience of these groups, he ignites crowds around the world with simply his acoustic guitar, a laptop and the bravado of his dynamic voice. From quiet and playful indie folk ditties to literally pushing the audience, spitting fast-chopping raps; Ceschi embodies the spirit of a true showman - proving to us that one man can do it all. He’s spent the last four years since the release of his acclaimed They Hate Francisco False honing these skills and collaborating with an innumerable amount of today’s most talented MC’s, producers and artists of all genres. He’s toured America, Europe and Japan with independent hip-hop heroes such as Myka 9, Awol One, Sole and Onry Ozzborn and even created his own successful record label - Fake Four, Inc.- that these artists now call home. All the while, he still found time to play in those aforementioned many genred bands.

    Paranoid Castle - Welcome To Success

    STREET DATE » 08/25/2014 Backed by the lush, vivid beats of Canadian producer Factor, Bay Area emcee Kirby Dominant ponders the perils of self-actualization on their third LP together as Paranoid Castle. Are the trappings of success smoke screens for inner turmoil or are they success itself? Do the drugs and women provide joy or fleeting escape? How long can one keep clawing out at temporary pleasures in the wake of unresolved anguish?
     

    Sadistik - ULTRAVIOLET

    STREET DATE » 07/01/2014 On Ultraviolet (Fake Four, Inc.), Sadistik closes his eyes tight and reaches out towards the peripheries of perception through introspection and psychedelic escapism, transcribing the vivid images crawling on the dark purple walls of his Seattle studio. The day after he finished recording 2013’s critically acclaimed Flowers For My Father, Sadistik (born Cody Foster) began writing the new record with a head full of acid, left field 60s & 70s cinema and palpable frustration with the world around him. Falling somewhere on the spectrum between the confessionals of Atmosphere and dark heart of Cage, and inspired by the delivery and ethos of the legendary Eyedea, Seattle-based emcee Sadistik has been a force on the indie scene for the better part of a decade, opening for artists such as Lupe Fiasco and collaborating with the likes of Sage Francis, Astronautalis and Ceschi. He began Ultraviolet as an exercise in creativity, pushing himself to never take a day off and make the best album of his career for the second year in a row.
     

    Moodie Black - NAUSEA

    STREET DATE » 04/22/2014 Long before Kanye West appropriated noise rap to create his new sound, independent artists such as Moodie Black were busy perfecting an art built of swelling distortion & uncomfortable energy. Although the group still cherishes the sound of static, now on their first full length album, NAUSEA, they've developed an extension of noise rap based on industrial yet melodic soundscapes and have embraced minimalism. This is more of a sonic journey than a kick in the face.
