Album Review – SciFi Stu

SciFi Stu


(Digi Crates Records)

Having busied himself in recent years deep within the depths of the global underground Hip-Hop scene, Scottish producer SciFi Stu’s second project for NY-based imprint Digi Crates is sure to be the release that ensures anyone who has a passion for dusty-fingered beats and melodic, atmospheric samples will be familiar with the talented Edinburgh-based music man by the end of 2012.

A brilliantly crafted album, “Blood” is the sound of an individual who clearly cares about his art and appears to be meticulous about the creative process. There are no throwaway beats or bland tracks to be found here, with the production on offer being warm, organic, cleverly layered and full of soul, mixing hardcore boom-bap sensibilities with subtle sonic touches. Luckily, the varied posse of featured emcees who provide the album’s lyrical clout are up to the challenge of matching Stu’s quality musicianship with quality verses.

The mellow thump of “Can’t Leave” opens the project, with Jersey’s Ill Poetix providing heartfelt lyrics concerning the current state of the game over soaring female vocal samples. The neck-snapping “Soldiers” finds North Carolina’s Veteran Assassins joining forces with East Coast emcee Mega Trife, with the trio stomping all over SciFi’s rugged beat with memorable one-liners (“I’ve been nice since Nas chipped off the tooth”) accompanied by Chinch 33’s deft turntable talents.

The breezy “Boom Bap” pairs Moldova’s Fresh Sly with NY’s Smoovth for a good-natured lyrical workout, with the duo dropping punchlines referencing 80s icons such as funk favourite Morris Day and Brooklyn’s Audio Two over a breakbeat-driven track splashed with sparkling keyboard flourishes. “Built To Last” is a triumphant-sounding blast of feel-good beats and rhymes featuring L.I.F.E. Long, Nena Blu and Elohem Star, whilst the sublime “One Dimensional” finds MindsOne and Lone Catalysts member J. Sands celebrating artistic diversity in Hip-Hop over solid drums and jazzy, spine-tingling piano samples.

With further input from the likes of Has-Lo, Aarophat, Wildelux and Internal Quest, “Blood” features a long list of talented individuals all vying for the listener’s attention. But the overall star of this show is definitely SciFi Stu and his masterful true-school soundscapes.

With further projects in the pipeline, the release of this album will hopefully see the Scottish producer begin to gain the wider recognition he so rightfully deserves.
