“The Ultimate EP”

(WorldExpoRecords.Com)

With their “Formula 99” project having been one of last year’s dopest albums, you’d be forgiven for expecting the Soundsci collective to have taken a little time off to recharge their creative batteries. After all, it’s difficult enough sometimes for a group living in the same city to co-ordinate their schedules to record new music, so it definitely can’t be easy to put together fresh material when your crew is divided by an ocean and various US state lines.

Yet rather than rest on their true-school laurels, UK-based producers Jonny Cuba and Ollie Teeba have got straight back into their virtual lab with Atlanta-based emcees Audessey and U-George, plus NY’s Oxygen, to deliver a tight eight-track package of new joints and remixes.

Kicking off with the body-rockin’ soul clap vibes of the EP’s title track, the group’s three wordsmiths conjour up the atmosphere of an old-school block party as they swiftly pass the mic between each other, dropping some good ol-fashioned lyrical bravado along the way with references to Shabba Doo, Kase 2, boomboxes, Spike Lee and Professor Griff.

DJ Spinna and the UK’s DJ Format are both on-hand to remix a track each from the previously-mentioned “Formula 99”. The Jigmasta’s take on “Ill Dialect” replaces the choppy, piano-laced boom-bap feel of the original with a soulful, intergalactic soundscape, whilst Brighton’s Format delivers some trademark drum-heavy breakbeat madness on his interpretation of the uptempo “Rhyme 4 Rhyme”.

“The Vow” is a heartfelt pledge from the crew to always remain true to their underground roots, claiming that they’re “never ’bout the pop or the fizz” over crisp kicks and a haunting vocal sample, whilst the previously released “Lyrical Beatdown” is a granite-tough slice of hardcore b-boy music that will have you pulling your hoodie up and lacing your Timberlands as the nasty guitar sample twists your grill into a satisfied grimace.

Another accomplished project from the Soundsci camp, “The Ultimate EP” is more of that timeless Hip-Hop that will still sound as good in decades to come as it does in the present day.
