Lawson Graham

Lawson Graham Lawson Graham Canadian producer Factor has been crafting top notch hip hop beats over the last 10 years for a who’s who list of independent hip hop artists including Awol One, Myka 9, Moka Only, Busdriver, Pigeon John, Sole, Aesop Rock – even Xzibit. On his latest solo album, Lawson Graham, Factor puts together a musical ode to his grandfather (who graces the cover) with some of the most melodic and exposed songs of his career. While this album does not escape Factor’s signature crackling, heavy drums and melodic psychedelic samples, Lawson Graham delves even further into an indie pop and folk realm.Lawson Graham is Factor’s official followup to 2008’s Chandelier – a record that received praise for its beautifully constructed melodic psychedelic hip hop beats and its impressive cast of accompanying emcees. His latest record on Fake Four is an incredibly well executed indie pop and folk driven hip hop release featuring vocal performances from many Fake Four label mates including Gregory Pepper, Sole, Radical Face, Myka 9, Moka Only, Cars & Trains, Ceschi along with Pigeon John, Josh Martinez, 2Mex and many others!

NEWEST RELEASES »

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.
