PERFECT MY CRAFT (ELM8032)

Eyedentity are an ever evolving creative collective fuelled by the two founding members, Krishna and Diana Booker - otherwise known as The Factor and Decibel (dB). A hip-hop, trip-hop, acid jazz entity with a life of its own, this unique musical collaboration comprises a variety of highly talented artists, fusing styles from around the world to produce a progressive and innovative sound. The combined talent of these artists produced their excellent debut album See, released in Europe in 99 and the US in May 2000.

 

Taking trip hop into unchartered territory See combines a variety of musical flavours and multicultural influences. Their latest offering Perfect My Craft is in their own words "a challenge of self discovery for the hard core hip hop head and a comforting, inspiring journey for the open minded listener." Fusing the elements of hip hop, trip hop, funk, Afro-Brazilian, classic & Latin jazz, the project's subject matter varies from the classic underground "verbal battle" to empathic odes of frustration and sadness glazed with the salvation of improving ones outer existence by working on the inner self. Avoiding musical cliches and categorisation this inventive music is deep and provocative and aimed at the thinking listener. alt
